This subject takes a pedagogical approach to technology integration in educational settings, and focuses on how digital technologies can support personalisation in learning and assessment, linked to a clinical approach to teaching. Participants will learn to use digital technologies safely and effectively within educational settings. The subject will develop participants’ technology capabilities and support them to meet national and Victorian curriculum standards. It will also support participants to meet Australian Professional Standards for Teachers in the area of Information and Communications Technologies.
