The pace at the use of technology in the classroom is being implemented by teachers is parallel to the rate of change in ICT. As a consequence, continuous and complex technology integration professional development is vital for the training and development of teachers.
This is important because the level of ICT capability of a teacher is likely to influence classroom use of technology in two ways:
- Teacher use – there may be little use of ICT at the front of the whole class, even by confident teachers.
- Student use – the higher the level of ICT capability a teacher has the more natural it would be for him or her to scaffold students’ learning of ICT alongside the main learning objectives.
For a teacher, ICT capability is just about acquiring skills, but developing understanding and judgement about how to use those skills appropriately.

“I learned a lot from this course and I was discussing about this course with my director today and also about the strategies that we can implement in the preschool room this year. I also learn that how we can invite families to be part of ICT integration at more profound level. I really enjoyed all the modules and how the reflective part at the end, help you as a student of this course to think and then reflect on your own learning at the end of each module. Thank you for this amazing, interesting and informative course which stimulated my professional growth in a profound manner.”
