Περίληψη / Abstract
This article explores how teachers use ICT-enabled learning to engage students in classroom learning. These insights are drawn from a broader qualitative case study which sought to identify key factors that engaged year 5/6 students (aged 10-12 years) in religious education (RE) classes. The case consisted of six composite classes of Australian upper primary school students (combined classes of year 5/6) and their teachers. Semi-structured and focus group interviews as well as a series of direct classroom observations were employed to gain insights into how ICT-enabled learning fostered student engagement. The findings from this study suggest that ICT-enabled learning may facilitate cognitive engagement in situations where teachers adopt a student-centred pedagogy. This study suggests ways in which teachers might foster student engagement through ICT-enabled learning by participation in open tasks, peer learning interactions and global learning connections.
