"Hi Heather Perhaps what would be useful here is how word clouds can be used with students I have a few links here which may be of interest. Certainly word cloud generators are great for looking at key vocabulary in any subject. See in…"

Colleen Young replied to Victoria Lawson's discussion Pop Quizzes...Good? Or Bad?
"I think there is definitely a place for practicing recall. I am currently enjoying Making it Stick. I am sure the secret is to help the students understand that this is to help their learning - not something to stress about. Tests or self-checks as…"

"I agree, it's a really good tool. When you are logged in, look at the icons on the right, you will see one is for Share/Export. There is a note on WordPress, you can only embed using a self-hosted blog on WordPress.org. I believe you can copy…"

Hi, I am Suad Malik. I would appreciate if you add some view to my discussion about the barriers faced by institutes in being able to embed ICT .

Would you kindly share the kind of  barriers you see in your institution?

I agree that it is vital to  make the teachers aware of the upcoming educational technology and hey need to be trained and equipped with these resources.  Therefore, the responsibility lies on the institution to equip the teachers with latest educational technology. sufficient training will increase their levels of engagement in ICT. Its true that even a small number of people can be a source of inspiration for others provided  they share their good practices with each other. Most of the teachers complain about he amount of time spent on planning the IT lesson and prefer to teach with traditional ways of teaching

Hi, I am Ambreen Amer. I would appreciate if you add some view to my discussion about the barriers faced by institutes in being able to embed ICT fully as I am doing a project on it.

hi Colleen, I am Nishat Kashir and working as a Mathematics curruculum coordinator. While training the teachers the barriers in the successful implementation of ICT in teaching are their incompetencies, lack of moyivation and confidence  in using new technologies. A lot of training and motivation is required.

Would you kindly share the kind of  barriers you see in your institution?

Hi Colleen,

With your interest in Online Whiteboards, I recommend you take a look at Wiziq's virtual classroom and authorstream's power point presentation platform. Both are web based platforms, have a bunch of features and free basic service.

Here’s a Public Class on Technology Integration you might be interested in.
