CUR4211 ICT-Enhanced Curriculum
Credit Points: 10

This unit will equip beginning teachers with the skills and appropriate pedagogical frameworks to build and deliver curriculum that takes advantage of the curriculum benefits afforded by ICT. It is designed to develop a research-supported, skills-based approach to many common generic application clusters (e.g. Web 2.0 collaboration tools, multimedia authoring, etc), combined with real-world examples of how these may be used in the classroom to build relevant, engaging learning events. Although there is a large amount of ICT use embedded in this unit, the approach is guided by solid pedagogy and has a focus on learning, rather than tools or software. Developing curriculum that is grounded in how tools and technologies support learning, rather than how particular packages and programs work, will ensure that pre-service teachers will be well-equip to deal with whatever technological advances appear in the future. The unit includes: evaluating computer-based products and activities with a particular focus on pedagogical and interface issues; familiarising students with research, researchers and issues in the field of education computing; and assisting students to establish a Personal Learning Network (PLN) that will become a source of support, inspiration and innovation as they begin their teaching journey
