The appropriate use of technology to support pedagogy, school improvement and transformation is critical to its success. Transformation of learning and teaching requires more than provision of the tools – it requires ongoing support, professional learning, research, leadership and guidance. DET Digital Learning Branch and Information Technology Division is now offering full-day workshops to support school leadership teams through the process of developing a long-term school ICT Plan that:
- addresses the learning and teaching goals of the school
- develops a sustainable ICT plan that meets the needs of the school community
- ensures a coherent team approach to ICT planning involving school leaders, learning technologies leaders, curriculum leaders and technical support staff.
The basis of the day involves stepping participants through the DET Online ICT Planning Tool that enables the school to produce a customised ICT Plan that brings together SIPS data, the school learning and teaching goals and budgetary considerations.
Principals, Learning Technologies Coordinators and Specialist technicians can access the tool using the link below:
