After completing the lectures and tutorials for this week and concentrating on applying this information into assignment 2, the impact of incorporating ICTs into teaching and learning appears very overwhelming. I can definitely appreciate the level of excitement and engagement it can offer learning experiences but I am also in conflict with the amount of time required to research and trial possible ICT resources for students. Being unfamiliar in ICT territory makes it even more challenging! So far, I have been fortunate to ‘stumble’ across some great looking resources and had a bit of a play. In no means do I intend to sound pessimistic about the inclusion of ICTs, in fact I am convinced to be optimistic about it. Whilst yes, I have experienced challenges, it has amazed me just how far we are able to take learning for students, by considering ‘replacing, amplifying and transforming” through using ICTs in our planning.
