eLearning Planning > Learning, teaching & assessment, reporting resource

Your school's ICT planning process can now be facilitated through the online Schools ICT Progression Strategy (SIPS) website. This resource is accessible to Principal class officers and Learning Technologies Coordinators and will lead you through the steps required to develop an effective and targeted plan for your school.

Your planning needs to take into account the infrastructure and technologies available and the emerging digital technologies of our students, as well as to develop appropriate strategies to support improved learning and teaching in your school.

The resources below provide further information around the Learning, teaching & assessment, reporting aspect of your school's ICT plan. However, these are provided for your reference only, please access the online planning tool here.  

 

Learning, Teaching, Assessment and Reporting refers to how schools lead, enable and support the use of ICT to transform learning and teaching, extending learning opportunities and improving learning outcomes by:

  • supporting teachers to recognise and integrate a variety of rich uses of ICT in curriculum planning and delivery that is underpinned by state-wide student learning initiatives
  • using ICT for improved, more timely and relevant assessment
  • collecting, communicating and collating student assessment data to inform curriculum design and to report on student progress
  • using digital environments to provide access to digital resources for improved curriculum planning
  • using ICT to deliver curriculum, extending and differentiating student learning opportunities and supporting students to manage and direct their own learning, and
  • building a culture of ethical, safe and responsible use of ICT.

The Learning, Teaching, Assessment and Reporting sub-elements are:

  • Curriculum Planning
  • Curriculum Delivery

Some thoughts...
“21st century schooling: Curriculum is focused on relevance, understanding, rigour and depth, engaging all students in authentic learning. ICT capabilities are integral to improved learning outcomes that enable young people to engage effectively with and work in an increasingly complex world... Innovative and effective use of ICT is transforming pedagogies, empowering teachers and support staff to focus on student-centred active and interactive learning” .

Contemporary Learning - Learning In An Online World (2005, pp.5-6)

Getting beyond engagement to the use of ICT to improve learning is hard work that takes effort and time. Teachers will need to invest in and be supported to use ICT, not just to enhance student engagement but for purposeful teaching as well.

(CeLL Schools 2007)

ICT is more likely to become an integral part of teaching and learning activities when teachers take their laptops to class. If teaching and learning is the focus of the school, then teachers must be encouraged and supported to use technologies in class. This shifts the focus from individual research and administration to the integration of ICT with the work that students do.
