ICT’s contribution
  • Personalise content sources and resources allowing those appropriate to each learners individual needs to be effectively identified, modified used and reused.
  • Provide pathways through that content which can be personalised to the needs of each learner and easily or automatically modified to take account of progress.
  • Present a range of interfaces to the content which are appropriate to the level and ability of the individual learner.
  • ICT’s contribution
  • Provide collaborative tools which provide new, interesting and powerful mechanisms for communication and collaboration.
  • Facilitate effective assessment and reporting tools which are flexible, adaptive, powerful, make minimal bureaucratic demands on teaching and non-teaching staff, and allow for a detailed understanding of the progress being made by individual learners, groups of learners, within and between institutions.
  • It provides flexibility about when and where to learn and about who to learn with.
  • Recognize the new technologies, their products and applications.Use the new technological tools to support learning, work and life.Apply the new technologies to produce new ‘products’ and services.Make critical judgments about the new technologies, their products and their impacts.Recognize the impact of the new technologies on how we think.Five technological capabilitiesAwarenessUserMakerEvaluatorHolisticProf. David LaytonViews of ICT learningLearner as ‘consumer’ - where educational content is ‘delivered’ to the learner.Learner as ‘producer’ - where the learner is provided with the tools to engage.ICT is not simply a ‘conduit for content’ but a powerful tool for thinking.

  • LearnerNeedsTeachingObjectiveMethods Technology OrganisationAnother way of looking at it
  • Effective pedagogy builds a bridge between the learner and the teaching objective.:
  • The three supports.The educational workforce
  • build capacity and capability within the educational workforce by allowing teachers and lecturers to teach more effectively – an effective workforce
  • provide new opportunities for others within the educational workforce to support teachers, and extending their reach beyond the school – an out-reaching workforce
  • provide access to continuing professional development and link learners, teachers, lecturers and other members of the educational workforce in communities of professional practice – a networked workforce
  • Some background: Levels of ICT usage in teaching
  • Higher percentage of staff in primary schools than in secondary schools use ICT on a regular basis for teaching
  • Levels of ICT usage in administration
  • Majority of teaching staff in all schools using ICT regularly for administrative purposes
  • Transformed schoolstransform the ways in which learning is provided through new institutional models – effective schoolsbreak down existing barriers between schools, the communities they serve, phases of education, and ‘formal’ and ‘informal’ learning – engaged schoolsextend their offerings beyond the traditional limits of time, geography and culture – extended schoolsImpact on ‘standards’Primary schools with good ICT resourcestended to have higher achievementthan schools with unsatisfactory ICT.When schools with similar quality of leadership were compared with those with good ICT resources stilltended to have better achievements than schools with unsatisfactory ICT.When schools in similarsocio-economic circumstanceswere compared, schools with good ICT resources still tended to have better achievements than schools with unsatisfactory ICT.Findings were similar across all subjects.A developing modelICT enablersICT resourcesICT resourcesICT deployed appropriatelyGeneral teachingGood ICT learningopportunitiesICT teachingIncreasedattainment in ICTICT used effectively in classrooms for learningGeneral leadershipImproved learningICT leadershipImproved outcomesCorrelation Coefficient = .65Correlation Coefficient = .63Factors must all be in placeNumber of ICT enablers in Number of ICT enablers in primary schoolssecondary schools25%25%20%20%15%15%proportion of schoolsproportion of schools10%10%5%5%0%0%012345012345Number of ICT enablersNumber of ICT enablersDistribution of crucial factorsSCOOLS ARE ‘DATA RICH’
