Formative Assessment Professional Development –  LEARN MORE NOW

When integrating technology in the primary classroom it is important that you understand that the key components of ICT capability are practical. You should not be under the misconception that a child's finished ICT product represents his or her capabilities in ICT. Like in literacy assessment, you would not accept a book review as their complete capabilities in literacy. You would want to assess the skills and processes that they used. 

It is the same for when integrating technology in the primary classroom. A child's ICT solution to a problem is just the end result. This course will provide you with further expertise to embed formative assessment strategies to determine a child's capabilities in ICT.
