Welcome to my blog! I am a third year on-campus pre-service educator at the University of Southern Queensland. The main purpose of this weblog is for me to explore my thoughts, feelings and ideas about new ICTs and the uses of ICTs in the classroom. I am confident with using new types of ICTs and quite often “make-it-up as I go along”. I believe ICTs can be used in classrooms to effectively enhance the learning of students. However, I am aware that when using ICTs problems and errors can occur at any time and so when teaching you need a back-up plan. I am hoping that in this course I will come across new ICTs that I may be able to implement during my Professional Experience. It is only Orientation week and already I have learnt how to use a blog site, Diigo and Twitter (which I know was optional but I decided it couldn’t hurt to have it). I admit when I attempted to use these ICTs I did resort to my “make-it-up as you go along” strategy.
I look forward to keeping this blog and engaging with the course material.
