First assignment done in class where we had to apply the UNESCO ICT framework into the school we teach, in this case it would be Providence. We used Padlet to the presentation based on Bring Your Own Device Policy.
Educational ICT tool - Pedagogy Integration (Frameworks) November 6th 2017
This week we went into the Google apps including Google Classroom. The integration of all the apps can be useful to communicate with students and teachers. What I liked the most is the collaborative options you can obtain with Google Docs and Google Drive. Furthermore, E-testing and lesson plans can be created with Google Forms, which has multiple options for the structure of the exam.
We tried it out as a group project: http://bit.ly/2z1GhKD creating a lesson plan integrating two subjects (Geography and Visual Arts) using the SARM framework to integrate the technology into the lesson. I look forward in using this with my students, the only disadvantage I'm seeing is that students must have a gmail account to have access to all the features.

Integration of ICT (curriculum and assessment) November 1st 2017
The curriculum officer visit and a variety options on how Modern Studies and VAPA can integrate technology into the curriculum. Additionally, using The Tech Edvocate's 2017 List of 116 of the best teaching and learning apps, we had to select application that will assist in a challenging subject area. Interacting with others teacher, we face different challenges to teach our classes and we all agreed in getting an app to motivate and make the class more exciting to get students' attention. Art history can be one of those areas that you need the extra help and we found VR (virtual reality) app called Boulevard that will definitely get kids excitement. The only challenge that we saw is not having the hardware to use the app.
