Abstract

This paper describes the integration of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) skills and practices across the Bachelor of Education (Primary) program at the University of New England, Armidale. The program was reviewed and modified in light of ICT competencies specified by the NSW government. The aim was to ensure that all students gained experience in these competencies throughout their preservice teacher training. It was necessary to improve staff ICT competencies. Members of the Information Technology teaching team helped design activities and team taught with other staff members. Reflections and feedback from staff indicated that the exercise increased staff and student ICT awareness and expertise and offered enhanced opportunities for students to gain ICT in authentic teaching/learning contexts.
