Document ICT use in our school at present and profile our students.

Description of activities carried out:
Five teachers carried out 5 separate case studies on various ICT apps/technologies throughout various scientific subject including Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Anatomy & Physiology and Home Economics.

A variety of age, gender and ability students were used in the study to gather research and conduct investigations.

Teachers documented their experiences, ease of use, impact on learning and capabilities of each app.

Results Achieved:
Overall the apps seemed to lend themselves well to enhance student learning and ease of teaching.

Teachers reported the effectiveness of the ICT tools in terms of assessment both formative and summative. They were also very useful as a means of differentiation for different learners and difficult topics.

Some tools, such as Quizlet, proved a useful student led study tool as they can make online flash cards for a topic then self assess their knowledge.
