WHAT WILL BE THE TRAINING ABOUT?

This training course is designed to support your development and ongoing professional learning as an Adult Educator. You will explore your own professional learning needs in response to integrating Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) across the curriculum. The course will provide opportunities to critically analyse the safe, responsible and ethical use of ICT in teaching and learning.

 

You will implement and reflect on professional development plans including opportunities to coach and mentor others in your areas of strength as models for sustaining your teaching practices.

COURSE DESCRIPTION

Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) in Education is a broad and constantly changing subject. This course will prepare teachers to understand, use and apply a range of technologies and platforms in teaching and learning, in line with international standards.

 

With the changing face of technologies and related application, this course will primarily focus on using technologies for learning ‘how to learn’ to cope with change. It will provide opportunities and understanding to Trainees on how to collaborate with students, educators, peers, parents, and global community using digital tools and resources to support learning, success and innovation.

 

Course topics include supporting policies and guidelines for ICTs integration, computer-mediated learning, telecommunications and multimedia resources, online teaching and learning, problems of classroom integration, and computer support for professional development and administration.­

Teachers-in-training will engage with the design and creation of exciting, intellectually challenging and authentic learning environments in which ICT changes not only what students learn, but also how they learn, as we move forward into the 21st century. Trainees in this course will examine how ICT might be used to both enhance and transform learning.

 

The evolving world demands changes; and quickly learning competencies. The course is aimed at specifically developing the following competencies in the prospective Trainees:

 

  • How to make ICT-based lesson plans
  • How to adapt ICT into current curriculum
  • How to make adult learners more eager to use technology in their daily lives

Participants will also work together to create a common curriculum which highly includes ICT on different subjects.
