The ICT component involved using iMovie. Student learning was scaffolded throughout by a variety of learning tools to develop higher-order and metacognitive thinking, including graphic organisers, various matrices, and a range of reflection tools. The embedding of ICT increased students' motivation and engagement, and the embedding of 'Learning to Learn' strategies increased their skills as independent learners. The combination of ICT and thinking tools was a powerful stimulus to learning.||Publication Type:||Conference Publication||Conference Name:||Australian Computers in Education Conference (ACEC 2006), Cairns, Australia, 2nd - 4th October, 2006||Conference Details:||Australian Computers in Education Conference (ACEC 2006), Cairns, Australia, 2nd - 4th October, 2006||Source of Publication:||IT's up here for thinking: Proceedings of the 2006 Australian Computers in Education Conference||Publisher:||Queensland Society for Information Technology in Education||Place of Publication:||Earlville, Australia||Field of Research (FOR):||130313 Teacher Education and Professional Development of Educators||Socio-Economic Outcome Codes:||930203 Teaching and Instruction Technologies||Peer Reviewed:||Yes||HERDC Category Description:||E1 Refereed Scholarly Conference Publication||Other Links:||http://trove.nla.gov.au/work/27224213
