ICT in Education for Teachers: Pre-Service Guyana

Teacher Training materials for ICT in Education – Commonwealth of Learning

The ICT in Education for Teachers: Pre-Service Guyana has been developed to support student teachers doing the Associate Degree at the Cyril Potter College of Education or the Bachelor of Education Degree at the School of Education, University of Guyana. Activities are geared towards preparing lessons and tools for deployment during teaching practical sessions. The course materials include the appropriate education & ICT policy documents and appropriate curriculum statements.

The framework encourages cyclical growth of a teacher's ICT competency. New users should work through the Technology Literacy materials first and then graduate to the Knowledge Deepening materials. In time we will also include materials for the final cycle: Knowledge Creation. Within each cycle we have selected 5 focus areas: Understanding ICT, Curriculum & Assessment, Pedagogy, Organisation and Administration and Professional Development. These focus areas have a number of units or lessons that focus on how to integrate ICT into these areas.
