3 easy ways to to use ICT in your lessons

1. Engage your class with Socrative (socrative.com)

Socrative is a smart student response system that empowers teachers to engage their classrooms through a series of educational exercises and games via smartphones, laptops, and tablets.

2. Manage your class with Class Dojo (classdojo.com)

Improve specific student behaviors and engagement by awarding and recording real-time feedback.  Print or email beautiful behaviour reports to easily engage parents and staff.  Save time by recording behaviour and accomplishments right in class, with just one click: NO extra data entry required.

3. Support your class with a blog (wordpress.com)

Sometimes a student is absent or away on a school trip and they need to know what the work was that you covered in class.  Well now you don’t have to answer that question anymore, just post it online and the students then have to check it for themselves.  You can also post videos (your own or from youtube) that can explain concepts or examples covered in class.  This is not only helpful for absent students but also for those who didn’t quite understand it in class.  Think of it as your first step towards blended learning.  Welcome to the future!
