ICTs available in my prac classroom

Over the weekend after my first week I did some research into the type of white board used in the classroom. My mentors were always complaining about how temperamental it was and it’s yellowing projector light. The board is an Interwrite Dualboard linked to my mentor’s laptop. The software that was downloaded on their laptops was WorkSpace which provided an avenue for the board to become interactive. After looking into it I was a bit hesitant in downloading it and decided against it. Other ICTs in the class were six student computers with internet connectivity which were shared with the neighbouring year 1 class and a set of four iPads that were shared between all four year one classes. Both the computers and iPads were generally used for Reading eggs, Mathletics and sight word apps. The class was allocated 30 minutes a week to use the computer lab but this time was also to be used for library borrowing, resulting in my mentors not utilising it this term.
