Using ICT to help low students catch up

During my Professional Experience, I have noticed more and more that the use of ICT for students who are quite low academically can really help them and motivate them to catch up to the rest of the students in the class.  There were 2 students in the class who were two years lower than the rest of class in literacy and numeracy, which brought upon behaviour issues with both students because they could not do the same work as all the other students.

So, my mentor teacher let them go onto the class laptops and do Reading Eggs and Studyladder which really helped them improve in their numeracy and literacy skills at their own pace.  This was really great to see and the kids loved being able to use the laptops.  It was also a great way for the 2 students to learn without a lot of guidance from the teacher.
