Strategies for using ICT tools for learning.


Students as teachers.

The MoE provides examples of students running ICT workshops for other students, teachers and parents.
Consider: Should we be asking children to do work that teachers used to do?
Given that "the person talking is the person learning" and "you don't fully understand something until you've had to teach it" probably "YES"!
Consider: How many jobs can we give to children?
Given that we have incredible tools the answer is probably limitless. Don’t underestimate your kids.
The LATS Conference blog provides these sites that Alan November, keynote speaker, shared. They demonstrate students taking on teaching roles, and demonstrating deep learning:
