Cumming-Potvin, W., Schibeci, R., Lee, L. and Lake, D. (2004) ICT in schools: Research supporting professional partnerships. In: Connected Learning Conference: The Power of ICT in the Curriculum, 23 - 24 September 2004, Perth Convention Centre, Perth

Abstract

This presentation showcases three recent Murdoch University research projects, which have emphasized the importance of professional partnerships in ICT and education. The ASP Trial has highlighted the importance of effective support in helping teachers in their journey to becoming critical users of ICT. Since 2001, over 40 early childhood teachers in WA have participated in the IBM Kidsmart Project; donations of an IBM computer and a suite of software have facilitated teachers and children in the exploration of integrating computer technology into their program. The Learning Federation pilot stressed the need for effective professional development of teachers; continuous professional partnerships would be a powerful way to achieve this.
