ICT stimulating creativity

I had nearly convinced myself that ICT was stereotyped destroying the brains of our children. I’m so glad that I saw this news article about a year 7 student from America that used ICT in her science fair project. How awesome to send a toy into Earths outer atmosphere using ICT’s such as; GoPro camera’s to visually record the journey, electronic temperature devices to record change in temperature, GPS for location tracking and Youtube to share the experience globally. My views of how to use ICT effectively in the classroom just took a sharp turn in a positive direction. The inquiry that will lead from this project for students and educators is enormous and exciting.
