The use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) requires a well-thought approach and in this Illustration, Mel, the four year old kindergarten teacher, explains how she effectively integrates ICT into her program. Mel demonstrates a practical approach to introduce young learners to using a shared iPad, setting clear and shared expectations that help to manage the children's behaviour. 

This illustration was produced through a partnership between the Victorian Institute of Teaching and the Australian Institute for Teaching and School Leadership.
