Integration Of Information & Computer Technology, Part 2
Course Code: YU20CO22
The Integration of Information Communication Technology (IICT) Part 2 Course builds upon the skills and knowledge you acquired in Part 1 in relation to the design, delivery, and assessment of curriculum through students’ technology-enabled learning. In Part 2, you will experience opportunities for extending your own professional practice; expanding awareness of and expertise in planning for possibilities of technology-enabled learning; refining the use of digital-assessment tools and resources; and, examining relevant legal and ethical issues. Finally, you will enjoy the support of the Instructional Leader (IL) and your colleagues as you explore tools and resources to refine professional skills and to develop a personal repertoire of technology-based instructional approaches.
Identified by the Ministry of Education (MOE) and supported by research as having a positive impact on student learning, the integration of technology into teaching and learning can extend students’ access to the learning environment and resources while enabling them to communicate, collaborate, connect, and create. It is important to note that technology-enabled learning must always be grounded in the Ontario curriculum; and, that assessment and evaluation practices must always be based on policy outlined in Growing Success.
