TARGET AUDIENCE: UK Primary Teachers and Australian Primary Teachers

It is an Australian Curriculum requirement that teachers TEACH general capabilities across their Learning Areas. ICT Capability one of seven of these 21st century skills.

In the United Kingdom, the progression and continuity of ICT capability in Primary Education is achieved through effective teacher strategies to Teach ICT capability in the classroom and is part of the UK ICT Curriculum.  UK primary teachers from Key Stage 1  to 2 and Early Years Foundation Stage.


This course is NOT to do with the Digital Technologies Curriculum but focuses on how teachers can effectively teach ICT capability across the Learning Areas.

This online PD is the purpose of  Early Childhood Educators and Primary Teachers.

In order to exploit ICT effectively in your classroom, you will need to develop your own ICT capability as well as appreciate what level of ICT capability certain groups of Primary students are performing at.  You will also  need to know how to improve your students' ICT skills further when appropriate in your lessons!

You'll learn how to maximise outcomes and capabilities in an inclusive environment for your students throughout your Curriculum learning areas at your school. In addition, I will give you the expertise you need to stimulate learning and to track the functioning levels of students so that they will continue to expand their potential throughout their schooling career.

This course will explain and exemplify what is involved in Developing Student ICT Capability!!! It build on your own understanding of ICT skills and concepts.

It will deliver practical and immediately actionable advice derived from the most ICT capable schools today.

ICT capability is a 21st century skill that students require in order to actively participate in a knowledge-based society and be empowered by Information and Communication Technology. 

Opportunities in all curriculums await teachers to develop student ICT capability whenever they use software where the level of control and decision-making by students is high such as MS Word.
