Henderson, Michael; Snyder, Ilana; Beale, Denise – Australian Educational Computing, 2013
Social media are widely seen as having transformational potential in school education. However, there is a surprising lack of empirical research in schools about pedagogical designs using social media and particularly the factors that facilitate or hinder desirable outcomes. Consequently, this article offers a review of the limited empirical…

Williams, Michelle; Sutton, Paul – Australian Educational Computing, 2013
The Teaching Teachers to the Future project provided an opportunity to try a new idea within the ICT and Pedagogy methods subject of the Bachelor of Education program. We believed that deliberately helping pre-service teachers transition from being an online learners to online teachers, coaches and facilitators would assist these new teachers to…

White, Bruce; Geer, Ruth – Australian Educational Computing, 2013
Despite the fact that Information and Communication Technology (ICT) is valued as a tool for learning, the modelling for preservice teachers of ICT integration in the curriculum areas is often limited. In the recently approved AITSL standards for Initial Teacher Education Programs, knowledge of ICTs is explicitly mentioned in three of the…

Lloyd, Margaret – Australian Educational Computing, 2013
There is a song at the beginning of the musical, West Side Story, where the character Tony sings that "something's coming, something good." The song is an anthem of optimism, brimming with promise. This paper is about the long-held promise of information and communication technology (ICT) to transform teaching and learning, to modernise…

Watts, Liz; Brennan, Sharon; Phelps, Renata – Australian Educational Computing, 2012
iPads have only been on the market since April 2010 but have rapidly gained great attention within educational communities. While their potential to support teaching and learning has been advocated by many, as yet little empirical research has been released on their application in primary and secondary classrooms. This paper reports on an action…

Bate, Frank; MacNish, Jean; Males, Steven – Australian Educational Computing, 2012
This paper provides some initial findings from a current longitudinal study that examines the implementation of a student-owned 1:1 laptop program in a school for boys in Perth, Western Australia. This research tracks 196 students, their families and associated teachers for a 3-year period (2010-2012). Underpinning this research is a mixed methods…

Keane, Therese; Lang, Catherine; Pilgrim, Chris – Australian Educational Computing, 2012
This paper explores two different schools' approaches to implementing an iPad program and a Netbook program to a year level of students. The aim of the study was to determine how these mobile devices were being used in the classroom and whether they enhanced teaching and learning. The experiences of students and parents were obtained through…

Moradmand, Nasrin; Datta, Amitava; Oakley, Grace – Australian Educational Computing, 2012
With the world moving rapidly into digital media and information, the ways in which learning activities in mathematics can be created and delivered are changing. However, to get the best results from the integration of ICTs in education, any application's design and development needs to be based on pedagogically appropriate principles, in terms of…

Larkin, Kevin; Finger, Glenn – Australian Educational Computing, 2011
As schools increasingly move towards 1:1 computing, research is required to inform the design and provision of this access. Utilising the Activity Theory (AT) notion of contradictions and expansion as a theoretical underpinning, this article suggests netbooks as a viable option to provide 1:1 computing for primary school students. Decisions…

Fluck, Andrew E. – Australian Educational Computing, 2011
Australia was once a world leader for laptop adoption in schools. Now overtaken by extensive roll-outs of laptops in Maine and Uruguay, this paper seeks to explain why this lead was lost. Six case studies of government primary schools were undertaken to gather data about current initiatives. Comparative analysis shows how the potential of…
