This week has been filled with so much talk on ICT about ICT for ICT that my brain is now on ICT overload. I do not know if I have enough skills in order to embed ICT into the classroom in order to teach students, for what they may need to know in the future. I feel completely inadequate so I went on a search.
I found that Sharlene had embedded a wonderful article on using ICT appropriately in lessons then I stumbled across a great article written in 2012 entitled “Teaching Teachers for the Future (TTF): Building the ICT in education capacity of the next generation of teachers in Australia” by Romeo, Lloyd and Downes. The article focuses on the TTF program which is working collaboratively with other educators in order to empower the pre-service teacher.
If you have the time this read helps to make sense of how ICTE and the pre-service teacher are heading into the future.
