ICT in curriculum and pedagogical transformation

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.
This session will demonstrate how embedding the use of an Interactive Whiteboard (IWB) and inclusive/assistive technology software can assist in the design of a differentiated and integrated curriculum approach to learning, catering for the needs of all students in a mainstream junior primary class. The class theme for the term was Farmyard Hullabaloo.
Universal Design for Learning (UDL) framework supports the use of technology to provide learners access to multiple means of representation, multiple means of expression, and multiple means of engagement.
