Why is ICT important?

Contemporary research has shown that ICT can lead to improved student learning and better teaching methods. A report made by the National Institute of Multimedia Education in Japan, acknowledged that an increase in student exposure to educational ICT through curriculum integration has a significant and positive impact on student achievement, especially in terms of “KnowledgeComprehension” · “Practical skill” and “Presentation skill” in subject areas such as mathematics, science, and social studies.

Christmas Narrative by Caitlyn

I woke up Christmas morning and I heard a whimper coming from the living room.  I started down the stairs and I heard the whimper again.  I came closer and closer.  Then  I saw a reindeer in the living room.  I saw a cut on its nose!  I put a bandaid on the red nose and I took good care of it.

In the morning, I took the bandaid off – it was all good!  So I continued to take good care until the next Christmas.

On the next Christmas, Santa came and got Rudolph.  He came in to my room.  He woke me up.  Santa said, “Thankyou for taking good care of Rudolph.  You are a good girl.”

Christmas Narrative by Kalina

I woke up Christmas morning and heard a whimper coming from the living room.  I started down the stairs.  I thought it was just my dog but it waas Rudolph.  He was sick so I took care of him.  My mum and dad called Santa.  He said, “Give him some carrots”.  “Mum” I said, “do we have any carrots?”.  “No, but I think the neighbours ave some”.  “Ok, I’ll go over to ask”.  But they did not have any.  Everybody had said “no”.  I was disappointed.

On Wednesday, my mum took me to the shops.  I bought some carrots.  We went home but Rudolph refused to eat them.  So my mum put them in the blender.  He LOVED them.  He was all better.

Santa came to pick him up.  “Now Kalina because you have taken care of Rudolph, what would you like for Christmas?”

“A ride in your sleigh!” I shouted.
