Assessing technology impact

How do ICT courses prepare 6th graders to use technology resources to curate, self-direct and selfassess their own learning?

As an IT teacher, using a range of technology tools in my lessons come naturally. In my role, I also collaborate with classroom teachers to better understand how they use technology in their teaching.  As students become more familiar  with and skilled at using  technology to support their own learning, subject teachers, who are not IT specialists, have greater confidence integrating technologies into learning experiences.  My learners need opportunities to both build new technology skills, and to use them in their own selfdirected inquiry.  Tania Asif, Project Leader, ACS Cobham International School
