Two graduate teachers collaboratively teach a lesson on the interaction of particles in solids, liquids and gases. They encourage students to take on leadership roles in class through a role-play activity to demonstrate their understanding of the particle model. Following this, students develop presentations using information and communication technology (ICT) to demonstrate the results of their investigations into particles. The teachers discuss the benefits of using ICT in the classroom, including the scope for collaboration and socialised learning between students.
Golden Square Primary School, located in Bendigo, Victoria, is a government school with over 400 students. The school has a partnership with La Trobe University to enhance the teaching of science using ICT. Students at Golden Square are immersed in technology throughout the school, with particular emphasis on 1:1 access in years 5 and 6. The graduate teachers are able to use a range of resources and technologies to support their students' learning in Science.
