Last placement ICT
Children wanted to be on the iPads all the time.
Teachers did not know how to get them working
Not enough chargers for the iPads
Teachers not following up on the problems with them.
When they where used they were not monitored
Games that they wanted loaded were not put on.
How could I have fixed these problems?
Followed up with ICT person?
Found some more chargers
Supervised the students more on the devices
Spent more time going over how to use the games properly
Figured out how to show the game on the large screen.
Upskilled on ipads
Very quick run through on how to use the games. Only on the device, not big screen.
Were the iPad devices used effectively in regard to learning?
What can go wrong in ICT for teachers?
