Some Interesting Perspectives on ICT over the years

"I think there is a world market for maybe five computers."

-Thomas Watson, chairman of IBM, 1943

Some Interesting Perspectives on ICT over the years

42% of all Australian households used or owned a personal computer

14.2% of Australians aged 0 – 19 have used a personal computer at home

Australian Bureau of Statistics 2001 Census

According to Moore’s Law

Computers double in complexity and performance every two years, whilst also relatively halving in price.

So think of the possibilities technology will bring a child who starts in Kindergarten today over the course of their Primary Education alone…

The teaching and learning experiences which we plan, program, and deliver to our students not only need to reflect the syllabus and context of our students….

But also that of our increasingly Technocratic society, in which we need to ensure that all our students regardless of background or socio-economic status will achieve success.

Overview of the Computer Skills Assessment Program program, and deliver to our students not only need to reflect the syllabus and context of our students….

In 2001 the NSW Government announced plans in the “Plans for Education and Training 1999-2003”for the introduction of statewide Computing Skills Assessments for all Year 6 and Year 10 students.

These statewide assessments are intended to measure students knowledge, skills and understanding in the use of information and communications technology (ICT).

The Board of Studies is responsible for the Year 10 Computing Skills Assessment

DET is responsible for the Year 6 Computer Skills Assessment

Overview of the Computer Skills Assessment Program program, and deliver to our students not only need to reflect the syllabus and context of our students….

Students at Year 6 will be required to sit a statewide external written and practical assessment covering a range of identified ICT Skills.

Students at Year 10 will be required to demonstrate achievement of explicit ICT computing Skills and complete an external written and online assessment.

It is envisaged that:

The CSA6 will join the current the BST Suite of Assessments

The CSA10 assessment will form part of the Year 10 School Certificate credential.

The Rational for the Computer Skills Assessment program, and deliver to our students not only need to reflect the syllabus and context of our students….

Information and Communication Technologies increasingly provide valuable tools for enhancing teaching and learning

Students across K-12 should be given the opportunity to participate in learning experiences and activities that assist in the development of their ability to:

Use ICT to locate, assess, evaluate, manipulate, create, store and retrieve information

Express ideas and communicate with others using ICT

Develop an awareness of the range of applications of ICT

Discriminate in the choice and use of ICT for a given purpose

Develop the confidence to explore, adapt and shape technological understandings and skills in response to challenges now and in the future

The rational for the computer skills assessment11 l.jpg

The Rational for the Computer Skills Assessment program, and deliver to our students not only need to reflect the syllabus and context of our students….

To make effective use of computers as a tool for learning, students need to develop skills in their use

The Computer Skills Assessment is a vehicle to inform judgments made about the development of students’ ICT skills

The CSA 6 & 10 Programs should enable schools to determine whether students possess the ICT skills and knowledge which are necessary for success at the next stage of schooling

Such as …

The Computer Skills Assessment 10 is based on ICT Skills and understandings which are currently in 7-10 Syllabus documents

Important things to note about the CSA Program program, and deliver to our students not only need to reflect the syllabus and context of our students….

This is not a new area of study.

ICT skills should be taught and assessed within existing mandatory curriculum over the 7-10 range

It is to be integrated across the 7-10 curriculum

Teaching and Learning programs are the focus for which ICT Skills are Integrated.

Scope and Sequence documents are not appropriate to profile and sequence ICT Skills in isolation.

Contextual training on demand is more appropriate

Faculties will be responsible for developing school based assessment tasks which profile core computing skills

Each Computing Skill can be aligned to specific faculties however there will be some overlap between faculties

Current school based assessment strategies can be a good model for which to develop ICT assessment tasks

A moderation of standards will need to be put in place for the assessment of the computing skills

Assessed computing skills will need to be logged online via the Schools Online page of the Board of Studies

Pedagogical factors related to ict task development l.jpg

Pedagogical factors related to ICT Task development program, and deliver to our students not only need to reflect the syllabus and context of our students….

Consider the pedagogical values and philosophies of the learning experience (independent, guided, collaborative learning models)

Select ICT technologies which reflect either a structured, research or experimental approach to learning

Consider what the students will do with the resources and ensure that there is a clear curriculum focus

Bernard Cheng. K-10 Computer Skills Assessment Consultant Port Jackson & Granville Districts


Pedagogical factors related to ict task development34 l.jpg

Pedagogical factors related to ICT Task development program, and deliver to our students not only need to reflect the syllabus and context of our students….

Ensure that the requisite contextual knowledge is taken into account when integrating ICT within the learning cycle

Ensure that explicit scaffolding and modeling of any integrated technologies is part of the teaching and learning experiences

Consider and develop strategies to ensure equity and access to technologies used within the learning cycle

Identify appropriate assessment strategies that ensure that student feedback is part of the assessment model, as well as taking into account the assessment of the use of Technology as well as the related cognitive skills.

Sequencing ict experiences across k 10 l.jpg

Sequencing ICT Experiences across K - 10 program, and deliver to our students not only need to reflect the syllabus and context of our students….

Stage 3

Experiences can be very directed and mediated by the Teacher

Stage 4

Experiences should be more student focused, with an emphasis on manipulating and exploring Technology for a defined purpose.

Stage 5 & 6

Experiences should allow students to extend, and apply their technological understandings of appropriate learning Technologies and ICT skills in response to Teaching and Learning challenges set in the curriculum.
