Online ICT Training for Primary Teachers and Early Childhood Teachers - Professional ICT Development for Teachers using Technology in the Classroom

How effective ICT Professional Development for Teachers can help build Australia's Digital Economy today

Accredited online professional development in ICT for teachers is recognised by many teachers to be the ideal form of professional learning today. This type of delivering is cost-effective being affordable and self-paced meaning teachers can learn anytime, anywhere and anyplace.

The road to student ICT capability is embedded in both the Australian Early Years Framework and for the majority of it, the Australian Curriculum where Primary education is responsible for more than half of student ICT capability development.

Effective online professional ICT development for teachers in ICT helps them to begin to think like the experts in making instructional decisions, structuring ICT activities and employing sound ICT pedagogical strategies under authentic circumstances. As an example, our accredited online courses which focus on the development of student ICT capability in primary education, allows participants to share their expertise, learn from their peers, and collaborate on real-world projects. 

As a starting point, we encourage teachers to begin their professional learning in ICT by:

  1. Learning how to Assess student ICT capability - this is significant, as they must determine a starting point for a child's learning journey in ICT. Once established, their continual professional development moves onto...
  2. Progressing, facilitating, and teaching student ICT capability - there is more to ICT capability than just the knowledge of ICT skills, students need to develop higher order skills and conceptual understanding. The information that teachers learn here is practical and immediately actionable and lies at the heart of ICT integration.
  3. Finally, most ICT integrators in education are seen by many including senior management as leaders. In order to provide a strong leadership in ICT integration at their school and prepare students for a digital future in the economy, we deliver an effective online PD in Primary ICT Leadership. From here they can begin to deliver strong and focused in-service PDs in ICT at their school and share their expertise with their colleagues in a proficient manner.

Teachers in primary education also have the choice to focus their ICT integration teaching strategies in subject-specific online courses such as our Literacy-ICT integration accredited course.

Continuing professional ICT development for teachers is not just a temporary need for teachers now, it is a necessity both now and in the future. If we as educators are to be solely responsible for the digital boom that will take place, then action needs to start now with teachers like yourself becoming a catalyst for change today.
