Chris isn't very confident with it.. concerns seem to be around Qld being very Microsoft based, but I can't see in the Framework any prescription to use MS products. Ignoring some of the legacy language and buzz words like Smart Classrooms, the table strikes me as easy to understand with a useful and well explained range of levels.
The progression is structured as:
- ICT Certificate as a base level of awareness
- ICT Pedagogical Licence as required before using ICTs in teaching and learning
- ICT Pedagogical Licence Advanced for teachers who make ICT integral and who show leadership
I'm not sure if the NZ education sector has something similar - if anyone knows its probably Derek Wenmoth, but this Qld one strikes me as both easy to use and well articulated.
Might the licence and advanced licence be an assessment standard we could use with teachers here who are undergoing our Graduate Certificate of Tertiary Teaching and Learning? Or does this set the bar too high at the present, considering the extreme range of skills now and in the foreseeable future?
I also think this way of presenting expectations of competency is a potential format for other areas of professional development, such as our work towards developing a sustainable teaching practitioner.
