What effect does the creation and the use of ICT-based energisers have on student engagement? I will look at the engagement levels of students when they participate in a two-minute fitness routine/energiser, and the impact on future learning after an energiser.

How can mobile phones be integrated into authentic classroom
learning activities to develop effective information literacy skills? I am excited about the potential of m-learning and will investigate how teachers can use mobile phones to foster effective information literacy skills. Using mobile phones, kids can access the internet, take movies and still photographs, make podcasts, and upload content. Why not use the tool that is in nearly every student's pocket to make learning exciting and relevant?

e-Portfolios not only have the potential to share student learning outcomes in an interactive and engaging way, but also the ability to clearly demonstrate and engage parents, students and teachers in assessment for learning. e-Portfolios can show what students are learning, how they are successful, the learning process, and the ongoing feedback and reflection cycle that takes place in order for students to take ownership and control of their learning. This research project will explore what teachers can do in order to maximise the formative learning benefits of online e-portfolios.
