ECDL Foundation launched its newest module, ICT in Education, at an event in Kigali today. The module is aimed at teachers, and will equip them with the skills they need to effectively use technology in the classroom. The launch took place during ICDL Africa’s Annual Test Centre Forum in the Rwandan capital.
ICT in Education meets the needs of teachers who are faced with rapid advances in education technology that are reshaping the classroom. It focusses on the specific skills that are essential to integrating technology in education, including how teachers can incorporate ICT in teaching strategies and lesson planning, while being able to evaluate the value of different tools.
Many teachers report low confidence in their ability to use ICT in education, and there is a strong demand for opportunities to develop professional skills in the area. The ICT in Education module has been developed with the input of experts from around the world, and has been successfully piloted in Ireland and Zimbabwe and adopted in Hungary.
