ICT and the Australian Curriculum | Australian Council for Computers in Education Read more about ICT and the Australian Curriculum and contribute to the discussion! Download the position paper The Australian Curriculum as presented by ACARA, acknowledges the importance of ICT as both a general capability (GC) and as a learning area in partnership with Design and Technology (the ‘Technologies’). Currently there is no published curriculum documentation for ICT Competence as a GC. Rather its place in the Australian Curriculum is recognised within each of the four published learning areas through embedding in content descriptions and/or achievement standards. As a learning area, work is just beginning on determining ICT’s ‘conceptual’ home and its content. This paper discusses four key concerns about this current situation and proposes and justifies a solution whereby ICT would be a learning area in its own right, either within the framework of the Technologies or as a new learning area. Concerns with current position There are concerns relating to:

How To Use Wiki In The Classroom More and more classrooms are now learning, creating, reading, and testing online. In order to keep up with our technologically demanding lifestyles, the traditional classroom is making way for such innovative tools as wiki. Not only is this an inexpensive way to manage your classroom, it’s also a fun way to engage students in content across the curriculum. What is Wiki? Wiki is an online application that allows users to contribute to or edit its content. The founder of wiki, Ward Cunningham, described his creation as “the simplest online database that could possibly work”.

Why Teachers Should Use Wiki in the Classroom? Incorporating wiki into the classroom provides a very different kind of online experience for your students.

The results is an animated cartoon in which their characters speak, and the combination of moving characters and audio recordings often results in a well crafted product.

Hoofdstuk 3: Kenmerken van web 2.0 - Het boek Ambtenaar 2.0 Wat is web 2.0? Dat lijkt simpel te beantwoorden (namelijk: de tweede versie van het world wide web ), maar dat is het niet. Om twee redenen: het is een verzamelnaam voor een veelheid aan ontwikkelingen en het is een van oorsprong technische vernieuwing die echter sociale en maatschappelijke gevolgen heeft. 1.
