My assignment one for EDC3100 is to create an online artifact that contains a persuasive argument which would convince a teacher who may be reluctant to integrate ICTs into their teaching and learning why it is a good idea.
My context is a year three whole class environment, as this is the placement where I hope to complete my professional experience in this semester.
My three reasons which I hope my artifact presents clearly are:
1) ICTs help the teacher meet curriculum requirements
2) Using ICTs for meeting the needs and learning styles of all students to gain deeper understandings and participation
3) Using ICTs for supporting students Personal Knowledge Management to help students make sense of our world & work more effectively.
I have used Prezi to present my argument and it can be accessed via this link:
