For another subject, I was required to introduce a shared reading lesson with an interactive artifact similar to what was required for EDC3100.

Our students run into problems like this regularly in the classroom. I think we need to encourage them to dig a little deeper when things are not working and show that it is ok if ICTs play up – we just need to fix them. After all, building and fixing ICTs will be a big employer when these kids grow up.
