Information and communication technologies: Possibilities and practical ideas for transforming learning and teaching
This chapter establishes that technological changes offer potential for transforming learning and teaching in the 21st century. In an increasingly networked, digital world, this presents new challenges, new opportunities and new expectations for teachers. Teachers in the 21st century need to ensure that the educational experiences provided for their students are connected with the ways in which those students go about their daily lives, as well as preparing them for digital futures. These expectations are being articulated in professional standards for teachers (AITSL 2011) and new curriculum, such as ACARA's Technologies Learning Area curriculum (ACARA 2012a) and ICT General Capabilities (ACARA 2012b). The chapter provides guidance for future teachers and practising teachers on how information and communication technologies (ICT) might be used, and draws attention to expectations for using ICT expressed through references to examples of the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers (AITSL 2011).
