What is ‘Teaching with ICT’?
By this we mean any classroom/school activity that involves the use of some aspect of information and communications technology (ICT) – computers, internet, websites, software, digital cameras, movie making, audio, digital music, interactive whiteboards, wikis, blogs, online social networking, and so on. Anything you’re doing that involves one or more of these sorts of tools.
WIN an HP Pavilion x360
The winner will receive a certificate and winner’s logo, plus an invitation to be profiled INTERFACE Magazine. And that’s not all. They’ll also get their hands on a fantastic Pavilion x360 (RRP $899), courtesy of HP.
With an 11.6-inch touchscreen, Intel Celeron processor, 320GB hard-drive, and 4GB RAM, it’s very nifty machine.
