ICT in Action

In Australia a growing number of teachers in primary and secondary have undertaken training and moved to implement the 3D multi-user virtual world Quest Atlantis (http://www.questatlantis.org) into the curriculum planning in their schools. This workshop session offers hands-on exploration of Quest Atlantis and the training session will count towards full qualification for participants to later use the program in their schools. The presenters will highlight the motivational, curricular and transformative value of learning within this rich 3D virtual world and a diverse global community.
Is your school considering purchasing interactive whiteboards? Or do you just want to explore how lessons can be delivered more dynamically using this exciting digital technology? This workshop explores the features of the elite Panaboard interactive whiteboard that make it particularly suited to everyday classroom use, and demonstrates how the elite Panaboard software can provide opportunities for dynamic learning across a range of teaching subjects and learning stages, with classroom ideas and tips from experienced educators.
The potential of podcasting to support teaching and learning has been highlighted in the past year, linked with a new wave of social software tools which enable flexibility, user control and mobility in teaching and learning. In an increasingly technologised world, learners need digital skills and social competencies that enable them to communicate and learn in different modalities. This paper reports on a pilot study that aims to improve oral presentation and self-regulatory skills through podcasting at a regional Australian high school.
