In this Year 12 language class, ICT is used as a diagnostic tool to informally assess students understanding of the vocabulary required for an oral assessment. The teacher draws on students’ prior knowledge and understanding with the use of ICT. With the use of hand-held devices and an interactive whiteboard, she is able to assess, provide feedback and report back instantly. The ICT helps the teacher easily check off what the students know and are able to do. It provides a concrete example of learning and it can show growth and achievement over time.
Emmaus College is a co-educational Catholic secondary school, 7-12 located in metropolitan Melbourne.  The teacher is the learning area Leader for Language at the Senior Campus. She plans the lesson to conform to the schools’ commitment to achieve deeper learning, gradually leading her students from basic revision and learning to higher order thinking tasks. She uses a software program to promote full-class participation and engagement throughout the lesson, while encouraging ongoing, real-time assessment of student progress.  She gives students constructive feedback during the lesson and provides time for them to evaluate their own learning.
