So module one is over and I’m a little pleased like Courtney we now start to learn how to design ICT-enriched learning experiences. To me this is what education studies should be about!.
A few things are already running through my head about assignment 2.
- He said try design it around our ‘somewhere’ as close as possible. Ok my somewhere is HPE.
- But, then it recommends to choose one of the endorsed learning areas/subjects from the Australian Curriculum for which the QCAA has produced standards elaborations. This doesn’t include HPE, only Maths, English, Science, Geography or History :(. So not HPE?
- It also says you don’t actually have to teach it but it would be hoped that you could teach it ‘one day’. With this in mind if I go all out with HPE unit using ICT I just cant see myself getting to use it much as a lot of primary school based pe is the physical movement side, outside with no ICT resources obviously depending on the school, but my prac school most definitely does not!
- The other idea was to use Maths as I’m undergoing a Maths unit at the same time, but I feel this will be a popular option for some people and probably has been done before…
So the easy task of just picking a subject area/ year is playing on my mind enough let alone once I try to start planning.
Although I did enjoy the backwards planning design in Assessment and reporting so we will see!
Looking forward to a few days breathing space over easter!
