Developmental Examples Professional Knowledge 1.2 Understand how students learn Use a screen capturing app (eg ShowMe or Explain Everything) to have students talk through their understandings, for example have a Mathematics sum where students solve it in written form on the app as well as talk through their processes and understandings. 1.5 Differentiate teaching to meet the speciﬁc Create small online groups with a varying tasks to complete (eg an Edmodo class that is broken into smaller groups and allocatedlearning needs of students across the full range different tasks). of abilities 1.6 Strategies to support full participation of Use accessibility features within the device’s system settings to allow for greater visibility, explanation, ease of typing/navigating etc. students with disabilities 2.1 Content and teaching strategies of the Students engage with experts in the ﬁeld of study (eg Skype, email, collaborate on a wiki) to ask questions, ﬁnd out more information, teaching area work on projects together. 2.2 Content selection and organisation Use online websites (eg Mathletics, StudyLadder, Khan Academy, JogTheWeb etc.) to plan sequential learning activities that students work through. 2.3 Curriculum, assessment and reporting Use instant feedback for students, and result-generating apps for teacher feedback on student understanding and achievement eg Socrative.com. 2.5 Literacy and Numeracy Strategies Use word processing features (eg text to speech, spell/grammar check) to allow students the ability of producing mistake-free texts. Allow students to solve real-life Mathematics problems using digital resources eg use GoogleMaps for football oval length comparisons.2.6 Information and Communication Technology Use a variety of ICT in the classroom, basing decisions on best use and most appropriate devices after focussing on curriculum.
How ICT Fits Across the Standards Professional Practice 3.2 Plan, structure and sequence learning Prepare learning activities where students explore ideas and create solutions and examples of their understanding using presentation programs websites and software. 3.3 Use teaching strategies Engage a small group of students at an interactive whiteboard to explore learning content. 3.4 Select and use resources Use Google to search for the best websites containing content that will engage students to enhance their learning and understanding. 3.5 Use effective classroom communication Pre-record verbal instructions to guide students’ participation and support students working independently from the teacher.3.7 Engage parents/carers in the educative process Allow parents access to student Learning Management System. / Email parents or send attachments of current classroom activities. 4.1 Support student participation Convert a class discussion into an online chat (eg using todaysmeet.com) to allow online discussions. 4.2 Manage classroom activities Rework the daily workpad to a digital version using a shared calendar system (eg iCal, GoogleCalendar) that explains lesson objectives. 4.3 Manage challenging behaviour Integrate a behaviour management system for student/parent/teacher feedback (eg Class Dojo). 4.5 Use ICT safely, responsibly and ethically Guide students through online courses that explain concepts related to Digital Citizenship (eg CyberQuoll or CyberNetrix). 5.1 Assess student learning Create a spreadsheet with student results, automatically highlighting PBs or lower than expected results with ‘conditional formatting’.5.2 Provide feedback to students on their learning Mark student work digitally using annotation apps, ‘written comments’ on digital documents, or verbal feedback in presentation software.5.3 Make consistent and comparable judgements Use online websites, like wikis, to discuss anonymous students’ work, discussing reasons for judgements. 5.4 Interpret student data Create a spreadsheet with student results, automatically highlighting PBs or lower than expected results with ‘conditional formatting’. 5.5 Report on student achievement Allocate students digital file-storage (SkyDrive, iCloud) where assessment results can be collected and students can refer to for feedback.
