As a result of reading two worthwhile readings that both go on to define the operations that ICT’s allow the user to perform, I have decided to create a list that describes the various operations on information that electronic tools allow us to do. Please feel free to comment below with any additional operations and I will add them to my blog list.
- gathering: pinterest, digital camera, video camera, go pro camera, RSS feeds (Google reader)
- recording: radio station, digital camera, scanner
- storing: internet archives (digital library)
- exchanging: twitter, facebook, pinterest, wikis, glovico
- distributing or accessing: radio station
- manipulating: word clouds, national library of virtual manipulatives
- communicating or presenting: class blog, wikis, geniverse, tech tales, IWB, mindmaps (Spiderscribe, Mindmeister, bubbl.us), Scribble Press
If you are interested in reading about how these operations on information can be used by utilising electronic tools please click on the links below the references heading.
I have also stumbled across an excellent post titled ‘8 Ways Technology is Improving Education’ (Kessler, 2010). It lists the benefits of using technology in the classroom and lists some great platforms to do so.
I would like to thank the following people for kindly contributing to my ICT operations list, your input is greatly appreciated.
