ICT in the Classroom


Task 3 - Authentic learning unit of work

Prepare a unit of work to demonstrate to your colleagues how you would use ICT in your classroom for your area of teaching. Immerse yourself in the context and write to suit your target audience; teachers. Ensure your plans and instructions are clear and easy to follow and include sufficient details, resources and supports to allow another teacher to implement your unit of work in their own classrooms.

Process

  1. Plan an authentic unit of work to engage students over 2-3 weeks. (i.e., not just a single lesson or two).
    • Draw on your background research (including, but not only, materials for Assignment 2) to plan a unit of work in your area of interest (e.g., primary science, Year 11 mathematics, tax law at TAFE).
    • Concentrate on the educational issues in using ICT. Consider recent technical developments only to the extent that they might influence teaching and learning.
    • Focus on the use of technology as cognitive tools, where the students–rather than solely the teacher–use the technology.
    • Consider recent technical developments only to the extent that they might influence teaching and learning.
  2. Create the tasks, resources and supports so that another teacher could use them to implement your unit of work.
    • Ensure your plans and instructions are clear and easy to follow (e.g., you might like to ask a peer to review your unit of work to provide feedback about the clarity of your writing).
    • Provide example resources that the teacher would provide to students to complete the unit of work.
    • Abide by copyright laws and acknowledge all third party resources and information using in-text citations and hyperlinks.
    • Include a complete listing of all your references (APA 6th style) so that your colleagues can follow up your sources.
  3. Present your unit of work on the website you created for Task 1.
    • Add as many pages as you need to ensure your plans, instructions, resources and supports can be easily identified and accessed by others.
    • Ensure you consider the web design issues you identified in Task 1 to produce a polished and professional looking website.
  4. Submit the assignment 3 coversheet_marking guide to MyUnits.
