ICT Equipment for Every Classroom by @TeacherToolkit

If money was no option, what 10 ICT tools would you use in your classroom?

ICT Check-List:

This is a check-list for the ICT I would want to use in my classroom. In this blog, I ask you to consider what your top-10 ICT hardware/software solutions would be. I’m certain that your list will be different to mine; and will vary according to the students and subject you teach and the school where you work. But, if money was no barrier, what would you use in your classroom to enhance teaching and learning for your students?

ICT Equipment for Every Classroom:

These are 10 ICT items I would like to use in my classroom. They are in no particular preference; some of the items I am already using and others are merely a pipe-dream. In most cases, the list includes hardware items, but not exclusively.

  1. A computer for you; and preferably one for every child! There was a day when I used to teach, that no computer existed!
  2. USB or wifi access for document sharing and device connectivity. Again, rewind just 7 or 8 years ago …
  3. A projector with interactive whiteboard functionality or television screen connectivity.
  4. A presentation clicker for classroom mobility.
  5. A visualiser or document camera for displaying student work, or presenting live feedback.
  6. Tablet devices for teacher and student e.g. iPad and not necessarily 1:1.
  7. Recording hardware/software for pod-casting e.g. microphone, headphone and speakers
  8. A digital camera for showcasing work and evidence trails.
  9. A few show-off gizmos; e.g. data-logging; remote control vehicles/robots/buzzers and lights!
  10. A social media output channel to connect with students, parents and fellow classrooms outside your 4 walls …

Below are the images of the resources listed above.

This list is complied to suggest an ICT toolkit for all teachers to consider. More details will be found in my forthcoming book …
