ICT TRAINING FOR TEACHERS


PLATINUM TRAINING

Putting together a training module

Consideration must be given to the LEARNING FRAMEWORK :

Consider these four areas when planning a training event :

(Pre-training session activities). Could be unfamiliar territory / equipment / people.

Vary experiences that people may have.

The different needs of different people.

How will you deal with an environment to make it more conducive to learning ? What needs to be in place before you start ?

 


B A S I S

Belonging Labels / making people feel special / making the start very important ~ even before the session begins.
Aspirations Motivate the learners so that they aspire to be better at what they do. You and they need to move forward.
Safety There must be some no-fail situations. Have an initial success, followed by praise, and thanks always works wonders.
Identity Your or their position or status is not important. All must work together as fellow professionals.
Success This is most important. (No fail tasks will ensure success).

Professional development WILL be linked to ICT capabilities.
