The Nature of Literacy with ICT Integration

Today, the impact of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) has numerous implications on literacy teaching and learning. As a teacher, you are not only challenged to integrate ICT into traditional aspects of literacy instruction, but also to engage students in emerging technological literacies.

Teaching Primary Literacy with ICT in the Australian Curriculum English KLA

"ICT capability is an important component of the Australian Curriculum: English. Students use ICT when they interpret and create print, visual and multimodal texts. They use communication technologies when they conduct research online, and collaborate and communicate with others electronically. In particular, they use ICT to access, analyse, modify and create hybrid, digital and multimodal texts, using digital publishing." (ACARA)

This online PD workshop is therefore, suitable for Primary Literacy teaching.
