  POSSIBILITIES FOR ICT IN PE & IRISH Rachel Moore 113403852  What is ICT? ◦ Information Communications Technology ◦ ICT is concerned with the storage, retrieval, manipulation, transmission or receipt of digital data. ◦ Importantly, it is also concerned with the way these different uses can work with each other. (www.ICTIreland.ie) ◦ According to the ICT Development Index, Ireland has a ranking of 7.09. ◦ This makes Ireland one of the top 30 countries in the ICT Development Index rankings. ◦ The ICT Development Index is based on 11 ICT indicators, grouped in three clusters: access, use and skills.  ICT in Post-Primary Education ◦ The incorporation of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) in Post-Primary Schools must comply with guidelines. ◦ These guidelines relate to the infrastructure needed for Information and Communication Technology (ICT) within the building. ◦ They are not intended to provide guidance on the management of ICT systems or software needs for schools. ◦ They replace all previously issued guidelines for ICT infrastructure in Post Primary schools. (Department of Education & Science, 2004)  Possibilities for ICT in Irish ◦ It is clear from in the increase in need and use for ICT that it would be a lot harder to run a school without the introduction of ICT. ◦ Almost every teacher works off a PowerPoint presentation or has previously typed up notes which have been printed off for the students. ◦ ICT, I believe, has now become paramount in teaching. ◦ It has become second nature to us, so it may prove very difficult to deliver a lesson to Junior Cert Irish students without using a video to keep them entertained. ◦ I do not think this is a bad thing, it is important to keep the students active and interested. ◦ If technology is what the students are interested in, then why not take that on board and use it to your advantage.
