    Thanks Tania, Rachel and Dorothy. After doing some looking around it is my impression that schools on a whole have moved away from using ICT Pathways as an approach to teaching and learning. Is this what others have found? I wonder if it may be because of the following reasons:

    1) We are making an intentional shift to integrated teaching units and ICT Pathways don't give us the flexibility to do this? Instead the pathways become the default and drive the classroom program?

    2) Technology keeps changing so the Pathways become old pretty quickly unless they are updated  annually?

    I think for my teachers I wil put together a simple pathway that includes Digital Citerzenship concepts and information skills that need to be taught, and touch typing expectations. I will also add a list of tools (software and hardware) they could use to support their classroom program.

    Anyone have any other ideas?

    At my school we are currently reviewing the ICT skills and knowledge our students are being taught in an attempt to update and develop a more cohesive ICT Pathway from Years 1-8. One of the components of the ICT Pathway we are updating is digital citerzenship.

    Is there another school out there that would be happy to share their ICT program/pathway?  Even if it was just for Year 1-6 or 7-8?

    Thanks Smile

    Hi All

    It is great to see so many sharing!

    We are focusing on fractions in our class at the moment (I think many Primary classrooms are). I use two apps for my kids to practice on. The first one app that my special needs boy loves is called "Pizza Fractions: Beginning with simple fractions" (I think it was free). The other one my Year 6 kids really enjoy and there is heaps of scope for them to be challenged in it is called "Fractions App" (I think this one was $1.29 but it is worth it). You can view some tutorials or get tested on what you know.

    I can' help myself but one that you want to have on your iPad while the RWC is on is the "Official Rugby World Cup 2011 App." It gives you live updates of the current games through the Match Centre, news, videos, team info, pools, knock outs and has a fan zone for those who want to go hard! Wink
