All Australian Schools are in the process of preparing to implement the Australian National Curriculum. Previously each state in Australia designed and implemented their own curriculum, which led to problems in resourcing. It has been difficult when students and teachers transferred interstate.
Information and communications technology (ICT) is a dimension embedded in each area of this curriculum in all grades.To implement this, schools and educational institutions will need to use technology in different ways. The weekly visits to the computer lab and shared use of desktop computers will not allow the flexible. ubiquitous integration of technology required by the new curriculum.
Mobile technologies will allow students to gather data and express their learning anywhere, anytime. This prompted this research project – teachers will be using mobile touch technologies in the form of iPads to integrate technology (ICT) in every learning area.
