ICT in curriculum and pedagogical transformation

This hands-on session features the Bee-Bot, a friendly robot designed to spark discovery learning by young children. The Bee-Bot is based on the philosophy that providing young learners with self-directed experiences leads to improved problem-solving skills and higher-order thinking while introducing and reinforcing math concepts. With the Bee-Bot children explore distance, direction, angles, geometry, and programming in more depth.
The term digital pedagogy is emerging as a way of thinking and enacting the distinctive nature of teaching and learning in contemporary times. This paper builds on existing research on the integration of information and communication technology (ICT) in teaching and learning and the work of the Queensland Department of Education Training and the Arts in establishing digital pedagogies as one of the five essential components of smart classrooms.
Are you looking for some new ideas for your Early Years mathematics classroom? Young children are born into a world filled with technology, so why should their classrooms be any different? In this workshop you will have the opportunity to explore a range of mathematical websites that have been tested in the classroom and given the thumbs up by young learners.
Engagement is being widely recognised as critical to the learning process. Either formally or informally this term arises during most discussions about learning, especially when ICT is being used to enhance the learning environments. While suggestions abound for ways of using ICT in learning to increase engagement, few of these reports offer means for measuring and reporting on the engagement. This paper first defines engagement that is relevant to school learning environments and expands on three types of engagement: behavioural, cognitive and emotional.
