Getting started in ICT: a presentation by Rachel Boyd

Love this slideshare by Rachel Boyd. The abstract for this session said: "Are you overwhelmed by the spectrum of choice in Web2 and ICT? This "taster" session will examine how to pick the cream from the crop of the field of Web2 and choose what will best support learning for your students. Great for beginners, we will also look at practical ideas for the management and implementation of ICT in your classroom." Thanks to Amanda Marrinan for the heads up.


  1. Thanks for sharing the slideshow. I think it was not only great to have access to it, but look forward to sharing with my middle school faculty. It helps to be able to say that this is what they are doing at an elementary school in New Zealand. Our teachers need to realize they have an obligation to get on board with this stuff so our students can be competetive with the world.

  2. It can be overwhelming to select web applications and mesh them with curriculum. Thanks for sharing this with us.

    Thank you for this very helpful slideshow. You give some informative, reassuring insights on how to approach the at once exciting and daunting Web2.0 menu!
