I am involved in teaching undergrads on how to clear an "entrance test", much like the GMAT or GRE. I have been watching the threads on teaching math to younger children, but couldn't really bring myself to using ICT in my classes.

My students are from varied backgrounds, and the ones with a non-math background find it hard to get the basic concepts. However, since they would have done these topics at School, I feel they are not ready for a "hands-on" experiential learning methods. For them, a "short-cut" to learning is more important to reach the immediate goal.

If there is anyone who has used ICT with older children (18 years and above), please do let me know. I had tried to do one session to introduce them to internet resources by way of playing with applets to understand graphing. I want to extend that one session to more similar ones.
