ICT IN EDUCATION ICT is the acronym that stands for Information and Communication Technology. ICT are technological tools and resources that are used to communicate and create, demonstrate, store and manage information ICT plays a major role in education as it contributes to universal access to education, equity in education, the teaching of quality learning and an effective education management tool (UNESCO, 2014).

WHY ICT IS IMPORTANT IN THE CLASSROOM • So many different types of ICTs teaching and learning opportunities are endless (e.g. Radio, computer, ipad, interactive white board, internet, etc. • ICT improves the quality of Education • ICT enhances the quality of teaching (Arinto, 2009) • Enhances the learning of non-traditional learners • Increasing learning time without extending lesson time • Motivating students, therefore engaging students • Preparing students for the future • Allows lessons to be more creative • Students enjoy using technology • Technology is used in real and everyday life therefore should also be used in the classroom. • Technologies are forever changing, students and teachers need to keep up with the changing technologies.

• Encourages and Shows students how to use technology for learning instead of just socialising and gaming. • Develops students research skills • Students can interact more with the lesson • Makes traditionally boring topics such as mathematics interesting and engaging through the use of technology • Equality education

ICT & THE AUSTRALIAN CURRICULUM In the Australian Curriculum, students develop ICT capability as they learn to use ICT effectively and appropriately to access, create and communicate information and ideas, solve problems and work collaboratively in all learning areas at school, and in their lives beyond school. The capability involves students in learning to make the most of the digital technologies available to them, adapting to new ways of doing things as technologies evolve and limiting the risks to themselves and others in a digital environment. The Melbourne Declaration on the Educational Goals for Young Australians (MCEETYA 2008) recognises that in a digital age, and with rapid and continuing changes in the ways that people share, use, develop and communicate with ICT, young people need to be highly skilled in its use. To participate in a knowledge-based economy and to be empowered within a technologically sophisticated society now and into the future, students need the knowledge, skills and confidence to make ICT work for them at school, at home, at work and in their communities. Information and communication technologies are fast and automated, interactive and multimodal, and they support the rapid communication and representation of knowledge to many audiences and its adaptation in different contexts. They transform the ways that students think and learn and give them greater control over how, where and when they learn (ACARA, 2011).

ICT CAPABILITY ACROSS THE CURRICULUM ICT capability supports and enhances student learning across all areas of the curriculum. Students develop and apply ICT knowledge, skills and appropriate social and ethical protocols and practices to investigate, create and communicate, as well as developing their ability to manage and operate ICT to meet their learning needs. Learning areas provide the content and contexts within which students develop and apply the knowledge, skills, behaviours and dispositions that comprise ICT capability. ICT capability and the Technologies learning area Information and communication technology is represented in two ways in the Australian Curriculum: through the ICT capability that applies across all learning areas and within the Technologies curriculum through Digital technologies. The ICT capability will be reviewed (and revised if necessary) to ensure that there is consistency with the Technologies curriculum following its development. The ICT capability is addressed through the learning areas and is identified wherever it is developed or applied in content descriptions. It is also identified where it offers opportunities to add depth and richness to student learning in content elaborations. An icon indicates where ICT capability has been identified in learning area content descriptions and elaborations. A filter function on the Australian Curriculum website assists users to find where ICT capability has been identified in F–10 curriculum content. Teachers may find further opportunities to incorporate explicit teaching of ICT capability depending on their choice of activities. Students can also be encouraged to develop capability through personally relevant initiatives of their own design (ACARA, 2011).
