Teaching and learning principles for technology rich classrooms

Look inside the Year Five classroom at St Dominic’s School in Perth’s north-western suburbs on any weekday morning and you’ll see students gathered around three computers; one group guiding classmates through the formatting of a mini book, some finding information about games played in the ‘Forties or replying to a teacher’s journal entry on MyClasses. The conversation is interactive and collaborative as students construct their own understanding of the tasks they need to undertake in a technology-rich classroom. They offer advice, they debate interpretations of the same task and their learning is transparent to the teacher who is quietly preparing for the day whilst monitoring the talk for further teaching and leaning opportunities. Pauline Joyce explains how a technology-rich teaching and learning classroom is about more than a desire simply to find uses for computers- and how the timely appearance of two commercial products; MyInternet and edClass helped.
