In the lecture for this week, we were given a few clues on where to start for the 1st assignment (which as a side note, seems like an awfully big assignment for the 1st ICT assignment, worth such a small percentage in the big picture that is this course)!
The Australian Curriculum website is the only place to start. There is no point in starting with the Pedagogy and working backwards towards the curriculum. The easiest and most effective way to start this assignment, seems to be to start with the curriculum and move forward from there, following the path of Curriculum to the evidence available for why ICT has its place within Australian schools, through to the appropriate task and finally to the pedagogy.
Now the question for me remains, what on earth is the artefact they require? How do I go about doing it and where to start? I have no doubt that as the assignment task is unpacked in subsequent tutorials and lectures I will develop a better understanding, but for now, I’m still at somewhat of a loss. Guess i’ll be doing a bit more reading for now!
