Register for ICT Planning Workshops in Term 3

Register now for ICT Planning Workshops in Term 3. These workshops provide guidance on the use of the DET Online ICT Planning Tool, which is designed to assist schools in producing a customised ICT Plan that brings together SIPS data, school curriculum goals and budgetary considerations.

The ICT Planning Workshops are targeted at school leaders involved in ICT planning, including: Principals and/or Assistant Principals, Business Managers, eLearning, ICT or LT Managers or Coordinators, Specialist and/or Local Technicians and Leading or Classroom Teachers. DET recommends that two to three attendees from each school attend the workshop and that one attendee is a Specialist Technician to help with technical details.

View this short video where school leaders talk about the benefits of the ICT Planning Workshops  and the online ICT Planning Tool.

ICT Planning Workshop

Designed for first-time attendees, or those needing to refresh their understanding of the tool and the supporting resources, this full-day workshop walks school leaders through the process of developing a long-term school ICT Plan that:

  • addresses the learning and teaching goals of the school
  • is sustainable and meets the needs of the school community
  • ensures a coherent team approach that involves school leaders, ICT coordinators, curriculum coordinators and technical support staff.

Next Steps Workshop

Designed for those who have previously attended an ICT Planning Workshop and are confident using the ICT Planning Tool, this  full-day workshop is for leaders keen to take the next steps in understanding the ICT planning and management cycle to keep momentum growing in their school.  This workshop will cover:
