What is the course about?

The Australian Curriculum has embedded ICT capability as a General Capability (21st century skill) throughout ALL Learning Areas.

In Victoria (Australia), teachers are already required to assess ICT as a general capability. By 2020, other states and territories will come in line with this too. Despite this, the practices and principles learnt in this course will allow you to assess the use of ICT across the curriculum

Assessing ICT capability will ensure that students progress in their capabilities in ICT and equip them with key 21st century skills.

Course Objective:

You will learn how to assess ICT capability (across all Learning Areas - except DT) as a requirement of the National Curriculum by applying current instructional principles, research and appropriate assessment practices to the uses of ICT in your classroom. In addition, I will give you the expertise you need to make informed decisions to help you unlock barriers to establishing a meaningful learning environment.
