Formative Assessment Strategies: Determine Capabilities in ICT in Learning Areas
Course Facilitator: Michael Hilkemeijer (read my profile)
In the words of Dylan William (2015,p9), " formative assessment is not just the latest fad in education. For any teacher, examining the relationship between "What did I do as a teacher?" and "What did my students learn?" is always the most powerful focus for reflecting on your practice...."
The use of technology in the classroom is inextricably associated with practical outcomes in meaningful subject related contexts. This is the best way to develop ICT capability and ICT literacy in the national curriculum.
The principles which underpin good assessment apply equally to the integration of ICT across the Primary key learning areas.
"A great course with lots of information about embedding ICT and assessing students' ICT capability in primary schools. "

It is important for your approach to assessment to fit in with the teaching approach. In order for you as a Primary school teacher to gain a valid judgement of learning progress of ICT capability and to give students timely feedback, it is important to integrate formative assessment with teaching and learning, rather than rely on summative evaluation.
