Integration Of Information & Computer Technology, Part 1
Course Code: YU20CO11
The Integration of Information Communication Technology (IICT) Part 1 Course introduces you to an exploration of how technology-enabled learning can improve student achievement. It will also develop your skills and knowledge for the design, delivery, and assessment of this mode of learning, one that provides and extends learners’ access to the learning environment and to relevant resources while enabling these students to communicate, collaborate, connect, and create in a variety of ways.
The integration of technology into teaching has been identified by the Ontario Ministry of Education (MOE) as having a positive impact on student learning, a finding supported by research. It is important to note, however, that in Ontario’s elementary and secondary schools, technology-enabled learning must always be grounded in the Ontario curriculum; and, that assessment and evaluation practices must be grounded in the policy and practices outlined in the MOE document Growing Success.
