Stephanie Moore's insight:

Jon Larkin runs workshops for teachers and academic staff on the use of iPads in the classroom. This particular workshop explains the importance of using digital tools such as Comic Life, Voicethread, and Audacity to assist with story telling, and the different ways you could use this in the classroom.

 

The information provided in these workshops links well with the outcomes of the digital technologies strand of the new Australian Curriculum. It assists teachers when they are allowing their students to "work with others to organise and create ideas and information in the form of text, images and audio using information systems, and share these with known people in safe online environments" (Draft Australian Curriculum, 2013).

Stephanie Moore's insight:

Although this model is more relevant for older students, parts of this model can be applied to early childhood education and the earlier years of school. Students are taught how to create something original using digital technologies from a young age. It also explains the importance of connecting learning experiences to students' real world situations, and young students are immersed in the world of digital technologies.
