At JPPS at Project plans answers the 5 research questions.
- What teacher belief systems support ICT usage in the classroom, and how can they be supported to positively evolve?
- What is the current state of teacher knowledge in schools, and how can it be most effectively developed to support the effective implementation of the Australian Curriculum
- What are the contextual aids and constraints that influence teacher use of ICT in the classroom, and how can the environment be improved to best support teacher practice?
- How can contemporary technologies be most effectively used to support learning and teaching?
- How can an action research approach to learning technology innovation influence teacher practice?
This is how we aim to achieve our results
1- JPPS has moved forward with technology. All staff integrate it into their teaching but through the CC21 project, technology will be used to support assessment also.
2- JPPS have provided workshops on the English Australian Curriculum in 2012. In 2013 we will plan, implement and assess a unit of writing for the whole school which incorpartes Aust curriuculum content, outcomes and digital technologies embedded in T & L
3- Purchasing of appropriate technologies is needed to track student progress but also keep details analysis of materials. We have many T&L tools already in place at school as well as a highly established and maintained wireless environment.
4- As we already have a bank of approx 40 Ipads for JPPS Ipod, MAcbook and AppleTV purchases are being explored.
5- Learning by doing, documenting successes, areas for improvement and collaborative plans will all effect teacher practices. Working together on 21st priorities is a step forward for all staff and the learning community
