How ICTs support Prep students to learn effectively?

While working with a Prep class for nearly two weeks as a pre-service teacher, I have experienced how ICTs support students to learn effectively. Students were taught the chosen content descriptors, then ICTs were used as a teaching tool that constructs and transforms students’ learning. As a result, students actively engaged in the lesson content and their learning was expanded. For example, in the geography lesson, students learnt about ‘my special places’. After discussing and sharing special places, students watched an educational video clip ‘Rosie and Wallace’s house’. Students were then encouraged to share their ideas of the special place in the video clip and provide an explanation. This ICT-enriched lesson moved students from lower order thinking to higher order thinking allowing transformational learning to take place.
