After receiving feedback of assignment 1, I realized I needed to focus on teaching content descriptors rather than teaching ICTs. I understand there are two perspectives – learning from ICTs and learning with ICTs – that are related to developing the learning experiences. The unit plan should provide students with the opportunities to learn with ICT to amplify their learning and transform the knowledge and information learnt. In assignment 1, I focused on teaching students to use a PowerPoint presentation rather than teaching them how to ‘describe strategies to make the classroom and playground healthy’ (ACARA, 2017). I was also confused when placing and explaining the chosen content descriptors into ‘constructing knowledge’ and ‘’transforming knowledge’. Information gained from week three lecture, which provides further explanation for constructing and transforming knowledge and using Bloom’s Hierarchy, helped me rearrange the content descriptors and organize learning experiences for stage 2 of assignment 2.
