In a mathematics lesson on multiplication and place value, a graduate teacher rotates students through a number of workstations as a means of engaging students and reinforcing core concepts. Prior to commencing the rotation through the workstations, the teacher explicitly revises how to use place value when multiplying large numbers.  Digital curriculum resources, such as those used in the lesson, allow students to practice their skills, while the teacher can set and assess individual challenges and learning outcomes. The teacher discusses with a colleague her rationale for, and commitment to using ICT-based learning to engage students.
O’Connor Primary School is located in Kalgoorlie-Boulder, 600km east of Perth. Both numeracy and literacy are priorities at the school, with the school receiving funding through the Smarter Schools National Partnership to support initiatives to improve student learning outcomes. The graduate teacher has been placed at the school on a year long internship, which she believes has allowed her to gain a greater understanding of the entire school community and its dynamics.
