image Microsoft Education are pleased to announce support for all those teachers who want to roll out technology in the wider curriculum.

We know that technology on its own cannot help students achieve more in the classroom. Consequently, this is one of the main reasons the current ICT curriculum is going through major changes in English Schools. Whilst plans are being rolled out for a discrete computer science discipline, research shows that innovative teaching practices, supported by technology, strongly predict the development of 21st century skills amongst learners.

The ‘Teaching with Technology’ e-course is free, self-paced online professional development, where educators learn how integrating the right technology tools into the classroom can enhance the overall teaching and learning experience of the 21st century learner, regardless of the subject matter.

 

Online learning designed to give you a deeper understanding of ICT

The Teaching with Technology is competency – based and can be customized to meet your needs. There are six online learning courses to choose from and each unit of study stands on its own so you can focus on a specific area of interest or need. You can start with what interests you most and progress through the learning at your own pace.

· Why promote technology literacy?

· How technology and pedagogy mix

· Organize and manage the use of ICT in the classroom

· Selecting ICT resources to support curriculum outcomes

· Using basic ICT tools to support teaching and learning

· Technology literacy and your professional development

 

Once you have completed all online courses you will be awarded with the TwT badge
