Course Facilitator: Michael Hilkemeijer (read my profile)
Why you need this course?
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...."
Formative assessment strategies can be used in early childhood settings, primary school classrooms and secondary school labs.
When it comes to ICT capability, most parts of it are practical and so it is significant that you monitor the approaches they use when completing a task.
There is much more to ICT use than just gaining the confidence and expertise in handling equipment. Essentially, we use technology in the classroom to develop higher order skills - this is why, it is a significant component of ICT capability.
