During my learning in week 7 whilst looking at the learning journals one thing I read really interested me was the tip model. Basically the tip model gives teachers a way to address the difficulties of integrating ICTs in their teaching (Wiencke, W. R., & Roblyer, M. D., 2004). In order to do this the model had five steps where the teacher must decide on the objectives and assessment, look at what advantages ICTs give, design ICT integration strategies, organise the learning environment to enable strategies to work and finally look at what works well and what needs to be improved. By implementing it correctly the teacher can amplify and transform learning using ICTs.
