Computer technology is constantly changing and highly dynamic. Using technology creates a dynamic classroom environment as well as a unique tool for enhancing learning. Using sites such as wikispaces and friendfeed enables my students to collaborate and continue their learning beyond the classroom.

i learnt that wiki’s can be useful for many different things. you can use them for reports and can be used as educational resources.

Year 8 Student

I believe that computers should be used as one of many tools in the classroom and it is important that they are used to maximise learning. Emails enable follow up from a lesson to readdress and confirm expectations. Other resources such as YOU TUBE and Vodcasts provide science information which is dynamic and current.


A great email…the students will have no trouble following your instructions.
