I thought I would take some time out to share with you what I currently use in my classroom. If you have any questions please feel free to add them in the comments below. It will be interesting to see if the way ICT is used, changes after my two professional placements this semester and with what I learn through the ICT subject.
What clips and devices do you use regularly with your children/students?

ICT integration with in my classroom can also been seen in the use of YouTube to stream music for rest time and to dance with as well as listening to an audio book each day at rest time. We use our iPads for photos and the daily slide show for parents to play at on the TV. The children also tell us at reflection time their favorite thing about the day. As they are speaking they can also watch it being typed onto the Learning Journey through the TV through mirroring the iPad using Apple TV.
I wrote the above a few weeks ago and forgot to press publish even in the last two weeks I have started letting my children use the iPads on a specific app each day for 10 to 15 minus during quiet activity time. I will post the apps in the next day or two but till then would love to know what apps do you use with Kindergarten and Prep children that are free or very cheap?
