The biggest issue in undertaking this course is the fact that I’m constantly getting great ideas about implementing ICTs. This in and of itself is not a bad thing, but it has to be taken into account that as a pre-service teacher, I can only plan for and use ICTs that I can provide personally (notebook, drawing tablet, iPod, etc.) or that the school has in their resources. In my last professional experience I was to plan a media lesson in which students were each given an iPad to take photos with. Luckily, the library had a class set of iPad, otherwise the students probably would not be able to complete the task as they would have to share iPads (my mentor teacher wanted all photos taken within one 60-minute session).
The question then becomes
“How can I implement a wide range of ICTs if they are not available to me?” and
“Where do I draw the line when buying my own resources for my class if they are not used at my school?”
KHOWA81 touches on this question in her post ICT and Me (as a stressed pre-service educator and uni student).
