  2. 2. Me http://www.facebook.com/Acec2014ACCE Study Tour 2012
  3. 3. ObjectivesAll participants will understand the OrganisingElements of the ICT General Capability and identifykey resources.Most participants will be able to identify the ICTlinks in the Australian Curriculum.Some participants will understand the connectionsbetween the ICT General Capability and theNational Professional Standards for Teachers.
  4. 4. The Plan1. Introduction2. Investigate the ICT Organising Elements3. Identify valuable resources about copyright & Creative Commons, Cyber Safety & Digital Citizenship4. Connect the ICT General Capability to the Australian Curriculum5. Identify links to the National Professional Standards for Teachers (NPST) #ACSA12

  9. 9. General CapabilitiesThe materials for each General Capability are in 3parts:1. An introduction: describes the nature and scope of the capability, its place in the learning areas and its evidence base.2. Organising elements3. A learning continuum: describes the knowledge, skills, behaviours and dispositions that students can reasonable expect to have developed at particular stages of schooling. http://www.australiancurriculum.edu.au/GeneralCapabilities/ Information-and-Communication-Technology-capability/
  10. 10. The ICT General Capability“To participate in a knowledge-based economy andto be empowered within a technologicallysophisticated society now and into the future,students need the knowledge, skills andconfidence to make ICT work for them at school, athome, at work and in their communities” (p. 41). http://www.australiancurriculum.edu.au/GeneralCapabilities/ Information-and-Communication-Technology-capability/
  11. 11. The ICT General CapabilityInformation and communication technologies“transform the ways that students think and learnand give them greater control over how, where andwhen they learn” (p. 41). http://www.australiancurriculum.edu.au/GeneralCapabilities/ Information-and-Communication-Technology-capability/
  12. 12. The ICT General Capability“Students develop capability in using ICT for tasksassociated with information access andmanagement, information creation andpresentation, problem solving, decision making,communication, creative expression, and empiricalreasoning” (p. 41). http://www.australiancurriculum.edu.au/GeneralCapabilities/ Information-and-Communication-Technology-capability/
  13. 13. The ICT General CapabilityStudents “learn to use ICT with confidence, careand consideration, understanding its possibilities,limitations and impact on individuals, groups andcommunities” (p. 41). http://www.australiancurriculum.edu.au/GeneralCapabilities/ Information-and-Communication-Technology-capability/
  14. 14. The ICT General Capability“Students develop and apply ICT knowledge, skillsand appropriate social and ethical protocols andpractices to investigate, create and communicate,as well as developing their ability to manage andoperate ICT to meet their learning needs.Learning areas provide the content and contextswithin which students develop and apply theknowledge, skills, behaviours and dispositions thatcomprise ICT capability” (p. 42). http://www.australiancurriculum.edu.au/GeneralCapabilities/ Information-and-Communication-Technology-capability/

  16. 16. TASK• Go to www.australiancurriculum.edu.au• Locate the ICT General Capability http://www.australiancurriculum.edu.au/GeneralCapabilities/ Information-and-Communication-Technology-capability/
  17. 17. TASK 1(10 minutes)• Go to www.australiancurriculum.edu.au• In pairs, each person chooses a different ICT Organsing Element described in the pdf .• Identify the key ideas for this element• Briefly share your findings with your partner and/or via Twitter #ACSA12
  18. 18. Sharing
  19. 19. Investigating with ICTStudents use ICT to:• define and plan information searches• locate and access data and information through: - search engines and directories - navigation tools between and within documents - opening files of different formats - organising data and information using ICT tools• select and evaluate data and information by applyingcriteria to verify the integrity of data and informationand their sources. http://www.australiancurriculum.edu.au/GeneralCapabilities/ Information-and-Communication-Technology-capability/
  20. 20. Creating with ICTStudents use ICT to generate ideas, plans andprocesses to:• clarify a task, or the steps and processes required todevelop responses to questions or solutions to problems• generate products or solutions for challenges andlearning area tasks to:- develop, refine and present new understandings in adigital form- create a digital input or a process to support a digitaloutput to transform digital data and information. http://www.australiancurriculum.edu.au/GeneralCapabilities/ Information-and-Communication-Technology-capability/
  21. 21. Communicating with ICTThis element involves students in using ICT to communicate ideas andinformation with others and collaboratively construct knowledge, inadherence with social protocols appropriate to the communicativecontext (purpose, audience and technology).Students use ICT to:• share, exchange and collaborate:- sharing information in digital forms- exchanging information through digital communication- collaborating and collectively contributing to a digital product• understand and apply social protocols to receive, send and publishdigital data and information• apply techniques or strategies to ensure security of digitalinformation, to control access, protect files and report abuse. http://www.australiancurriculum.edu.au/GeneralCapabilities/ Information-and-Communication-Technology-capability/
  22. 22. Managing and operating ICTThis element involves applying technical knowledge andskills to work with information. Students:• use digital technologies efficiently including:- troubleshooting- adjusting parameters- monitoring occupational health and safety issues• select appropriate combinations of digital hardware andsoftware to match the needs of the user and the task• understand the transferability of knowledge and skillsbetween digital systems and applications• use software to manage and maintain information indigital files. http://www.australiancurriculum.edu.au/GeneralCapabilities/ Information-and-Communication-Technology-capability/
  23. 23. Applying social and ethical protocols and practices when using ICTThis element involves students in developing an understanding of:• intellectual property pertaining to digital information• digital information security, including the responsibility to:- protect the rights, identity, privacy and emotional safety of online audiences- avoid and prevent cyberbullying- ensure security of self and/or others- respect audiences, being aware of the portrayal of self and others• the benefits and consequences of ICT for individuals, groups andcommunities in society, such as:- becoming drivers of ICT, seeing themselves as creators as well as consumers of ICT- recognising its capacity to enhance participation and inclusion- analysing how changes in technology impact on and relate to changes in society. http://www.australiancurriculum.edu.au/GeneralCapabilities/ Information-and-Communication-Technology-capability/
