• Technology integration is an important way to create meaningful learning experiences. Lesson planning for teachers can be overwhelming when incorporating the use of computers in activities. In this article, the process for integrating technology is outlined in four easy steps. Technology Integration Lesson Planning Process.
  • Rather, ICT literacy skills were described as needing to be integrated appropriately into curricula in subject matter areas. At the same time, the instructors in these courses would need to be able to address IT and technical skills, or have support materials available, in order to ensure improved ICT literacy.

The majority of the teachers did not integrated ICT in science and mathematics classrooms. None of the school sample used computers in the learning activities for their students after scheduled school hours. The majority of the principals did not support their teachers in integrating ICT into the teaching and learning process. ICT is being integrated and part of curriculum as a tool for improving or discovering quality education. Hence, ICT has a complex role in recent societal transformation, either at home or at school or in society. In the Australian Curriculum, students develop ICT capability as they learn to use ICT effectively and appropriately to access, create and communicate information and ideas, solve problems and work collaboratively in all learning areas at school, and in their lives beyond school.

I had the privilege of presenting at “Teniamoci per mouse” an event I have attended the past four years. After getting to know the organizers I was asked to take part in the event this year as a presenter.


The title “L’iPad dietro e davanti ai banchi” bascially translates to “The iPad behind and in front of students desks”. I wanted to show how we at my school are using the iPad both with the students and as teachers. The important thing that I wanted to get across was that even with a limited supply of iPads (my school only has one per class and six available in a cart) you cans still do amazing things.

For what the students are doing, I spoke about using the Book Creator App that allows our students to create their own textbook that demonstrates what they have learned in their units. Another app for students was Keynote where we are having our year 5 students work together in groups to create a pechakucha. A pechakucha is basically a very organized presentation where you show 20 images for 20 seconds each while you present.

For the part about the teachers using iPads, I mentioned how they are using the iPads to document learning and uploading information to the school website and twitter accounts. The app I featured is NearPod which allows teachers to share a presentation and collect real-time answers from students.

I did make a side note about the ColARmix App which creates an augmented reality from a child’s coloring sheet.

It was a great experience for me not only because I was able to present but that I had to present in Italian. It was probably the largest crowd that I have spoken to at a professional event in my second language.
