My First Blog

Starting to blog as of today! 🙂

How ICT is used in the Foundation Stage:

  • PC’s – websites, software e.g. word processing
  • Floor Turtles
  • Digital Cameras – photographer of the day, use during outings, evidence of progress/achievement
  • Camcorders
  • Interactive whiteboards
  • Music
  • iPads/tablets – apps
  • Visualiser to show children’s work
  • Mobile phones – text parents for achievements

Although I know of quite a few ways in which ICT is currently used in the classroom, I do not know how to use this equipment to it’s full potential, or have many ideas for use with children. Therefore these ICT sessions will really benefit me and I’m really looking forward to finding out more.

Also, you will see that I didnt list ‘blogging’ this is because I’d never heard of blogs being used in the classroom; I will certainly be researching into this over the next few months.
