Should laptop be used to restructure Yr 8 English Poster task?

Posted by jturner56 on October 14, 2009

Working with teachers on introducing 1:1 laptops. Yr 8 English task creating a poster using Art to create graphics. We decided that we shouldn’t ‘replace’ with DTP software as task already had strong 21stC learning (creativity, HOTs) as well as cross-curricular relationships. Where laptop can support is through reflection (meta-cognition journal) and widening audience (say photo posted for feedback). Need to be mindful that computer is not the central focus, learning is.
