Measuring Success – RAT framework

One way to measure how successfully we are implementing and using ICTs in the classroom to support and enhance student learning is to question our planning against the RAT framework (Hughes et al, 2006). I have found myself regualarly stopping to question firstly why I am using this ICT? and secondly what is the positive impact it is going to have on the learning capabilities of my students. It is essential that in order to prepare our students for the demands of life beyond formal education that they are positively engaging in meaningful experience that use ICTs to enhance and transform they ways in which they learn. If I can’t answer those 2 all important questions, then I really need to ask myself ‘Should I be using an ICT at this moment at all?’
