Daily I read about ideas for the use of ICT within learning and teaching. A large number of the ideas presented often rely on the availability of a laptop, desktop or tablet per student or small groups of students. Some of the ideas rely on a 1:1 laptop or tablet scheme, a BYOD/BYOD implementation or a school which invests heavily in mobile technologies for use in its classrooms. All of this is excellent for those schools which have this equipment. ( I suspect these schools are still in the minority within the world as a whole however the number is growing, although I have no real evidence to support this belief )
But what about those schools which do not have this kind of equipment. I think it is safe to say that the common IT equipment found in schools, is likely to be IT hardware centralised in IT Labs plus maybe a data projector and desktop in classrooms. So how best can classroom teachers across subjects make use of limited equipment, where only limited equipment is available, to integrate ICT into their lessons? What websites, simple peripherals, applications, etc. have you used?
