Integration Of Information & Computer Technology, Part 3 Specialist
Course Code: YU20CO32
The Integration of Information and Computer Technology (IICT) Specialist Course reviews the concepts and philosophies explored in Part 1 and Part 2 to expand your understanding of technology-enabled learning through a leadership lens. This lens focuses your attention on leadership theory and practice to prepare you for advocacy in the integration of technology in instruction at a school-wide and/or district level.
Identified by the Ministry of Education (MOE) and supported by research as having a positive impact on student learning, integrated technology can provide and extend access to the learning environment and resources while enabling ways for students to communicate, collaborate, connect, and create. Critical to any future leadership role you may assume as a result of this course is recognition of and advocacy for the consistent grounding in the Ontario curriculum of technology-enabled learning; and, as well, your provision of support and guidance as required to ensure that the assessment and evaluation practices related to technology-enabled learning by practitioners within your purview are grounded in the current, relevant policy document Growing Success.
