Todays ICT Enjoyment

I am busily working on my unit plan and still have not come up with a confirmed theme, however, I have been inspired by reading past student blogs. Especially from Tracey who set up a lesson for quotation marks using ActivInspire  which you can see here. As my unit plan is about learning punctuation marks and capital letters this has really caught my attention. I have also been drawn to the app Punctuation as it seems like a simple yet fun, interactive way to reinforce student learning of punctuation and capital letters. I am really enjoying this quest for useful ICT and trying my best to think outside the box. It is amazing the things I have stumbled across such as apps to assist with classroom management such as  Silent Light. This app monitors classroom noise, awards points for good behaviour and records the amount of time students engage in a noise level that is  unacceptable. I had not considered the use of ICT for this type of purpose. I keep finding myself thinking, WOW!
