So Shaun and I are going to be presenting on ICT devices in the classroom. Although very few people would argue that ICT should not be in the classroom - a lot of educators and school divisions do not allow or provide personal ICT devices in the classroom. Seeing as this is a tech class in education we decided not to argue for or against ICT in the classroom, but instead we asked the question:
As an educator, what would make the best personal ICT device for the classroom?
This led us to other questions like:
What does the perfect personal ICT device look like? What features does it have?
So - basically to decide this for ourselves we created a criteria for what we felt would make the perfect personal device and then we rated the 3 big categories: Smart Phones, Tablets, and Laptops against them. Finally, we added up our scores and then included a final annalysis of what we felt about each device!
