Using ICT in Technical Graphics.


Teacher, Anthony Gainley, from Le Chéile Secondary School, demonstrates how he uses a flipped learning approach using ICT to differentiate and personalise learning in his Technical Graphics classroom. Anthony shows how he has created a simple instructional video, using a visualiser, on how to draw a tangent to an ellipse. This video is viewed by students at home in advance of the class on this topic, allowing in-class time to be spent applying what they have learned, and enabling Anthony to spend more time working with individual students and assessing their understanding of the topic
