ICT in curriculum and pedagogical transformation

Technologies have long been a catalyst to innovation and change in society yet in schools the impact of information and communication technologies (ICTs) has been slow to achieve transformation in how teachers work and what students do as learning. Why? Lack of vision? Lack of in-school support?
You will not be bored during this 90 minute hands-on session. Laurie Heikkila, former classroom teacher and international workshop leader, will share her experience and enthusiasm as she leads you through fun and innovate ways to infuse technology in the classroom. This workshop is committed to the philosophy that providing learners with self-directed meaningful experiences leads to improved problem-solving skills and higher-order thinking. She will introduce the Pro-Bot, a new tool for the classroom that takes advantage of LOGO technology.
The implementation of a software solution to foreground learner centred learning and scaffold authentic assessment practice has been an imperative driving curriculum reform at Catholic Education South Australia (CESA). The interface between the strategic use of ICT to transform teacher practice to position the student at the centre of the teaching and learning cycle has been part of this strategy. In collaboration with Oracle Corporation, a software solution has been developed to support cutting edge leadership to enhance teaching and learning.
21st century classroom practitioners combine powerful tools and manipulate rich digital learning materials to provide engaging, personalised and connected learning. State, territory and national governments in Australasia are collaborating through The Le@rning Federation to grow a collection of thousands of learning objects, audio, video and image resources for use in schools. On their own, however, digital learning materials do little to change the nature of teaching or outcomes for learners.
