  • 6. Key philosophy of the Pedagogical ICT Licence
    • Teachers reflect upon their own teaching practice in relation to ICT
    • Work results in concrete lesson plans (learning scenarios)
    • All themes have a pedagogical/didactical basis
    • Course materials inspire and foster ideas on how you teach in , about and with ICT
    • Participate in teams
    • Through electronic communication and team assignments a facilitator challenges the teams on pedagogical and subject/discipline specific implementations of ICT
    • Teams often formed by teachers from the same school
    • The course is distributed within a structure of regional course providers
  • 7.
    • Teachers
    • The planning and documentation of learning scenarios (with the ICT skills of that particular module) is assessed in each module
    • During a course the team of teachers complete 8 modules
    • The process of planning and documenting the learning scenarios is done in collaboration with certified facilitators, who eventually approve the team’s 8 assignments.
    Evaluation and assessment - certification
  • 8. Entry and exit levels differ … Pedagogical ICT Licence - No fixed level of competence All teachers develop their competences. Evaluation and assessment - certification
  • 9.
    • Teacher Students
    • The assessment tool of student teachers is their individual portfolio documenting their competences.
    • The portfolio may include products, assignments, presentations, course descriptions etc., including pedagogical, didactical considerations and reflexions
    • Their teachers and an internal evaluator evaluate this portfolio
    Evaluation and assessment - certification
