Unit Description

This unit examines the drivers and agendas for integrating ICT in teaching and learning and how ICT can enhance and enrich learning experiences. The unit examines a range of issues and challenges associated with using ICT in education, particularly related to social, educational, legal, ethical cultural and equity issues and how schools and teachers can respond to prevent or address these issues and challenges in order to develop safe, responsible and ethical use of ICT by students in and beyond school contexts.

The unit covers strategies for effectively integrating ICT in teaching and learning experiences that consider and respond to teachers’, students’, curriculum, and program needs, including catering for students with additional needs, as well as aligning technologies and strategies with selected learning theory and teaching approaches.

Through the unit students will examine a range of technologies that are commonly used for educational purposes. The unit addresses the strengths and limitations of the technologies, and processes for teachers to select the appropriate and relevant technologies to suit the students and purpose. In addition, the unit focuses on developing students’ own competencies in using ICT.
