ICT IN EDUCATION
This module, enables Teachers to start engaging in the pedagogically effective use of ICT to support and enhance teaching, learning and assessment in the classroom.
Technology brings many potential benefits to education, but it must be used appropriately. Teachers need to use their own experience as educators to make informed decisions about how best to integrate technology. The ICT in Education module helps teachers to make these decisions, allowing them to introduce technology into their teaching practice in a way that enhances outcomes for students.
The Syllabus sets out the specific knowledge and skills that make up this module, as informed by input from subject matter experts from a wide range of computer societies and organisations.
