I was reading my Feedly post and came across a post from Laurel about how she found the following clip from Kayla Delzer inspiring and how she used ICT to motivate students to complete those tasks often considered boring. I watched the clip and have to agree with Laurel – the clip was inspiring and though the use of ICT may only motivate students, I think this should be considered amplification from the R.A.T model as this engages students and will ensure the students learn. I then began to watch a couple more clips and came across a clip by Peter Hutton and though this is not directly related to ICT, I found this clip fascinating and made me excited about the way some education establishments are changing the way students are learning and empowering students to take control of their own learning.
