You should constantly monitor the way the children are solving the problems and doing the tasks so that you are able to show them new or more efficient methods of using ICT to achieve the learning outcomes.

I found this course insightful with a mixture of YouTube clips and reading materials. It gives me the confidence to incorporate more into literacy, maths and science lessons. It allows the lessons to be more interactive to engage the students. Especially, as the students of today are readily to exposed to ICT in their everyday life. To have this reinforced in the classroom provides them with opportunities to explore and build on their knowledge.
