Illustrations of Practice Video Series: Standard 2 – Know the content and how to teach it

27 AUGUST 2020

The Australian Institute for Teaching and School Leadership (AITSL) has produced a series of videos featuring teachers illustrating, through their practice, how they meet the various descriptors of the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers.

We’ve chosen one example as our focus. Watching this video and reflecting on how you could apply this in your teaching context can count as part of your professional learning requirements for renewal of registration.

2.6 Information and Communication Technology (ICT)

Use effective teaching strategies to integrate ICT into learning and teaching programs to make selected content relevant and meaningful.

Setting expectations for using ICT

The use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) requires a well-thought approach and in this Illustration, kindergarten teacher Mel explains how she effectively integrates ICT into her program. Mel demonstrates a practical approach to introduce young learners to using a shared iPad, setting clear and shared expectations that help to manage the children's behaviour. 

This illustration was produced through a partnership between the Victorian Institute of Teaching and the Australian Institute for Teaching and School Leadership.
