Information and Communication Technology and the Teacher of the Future
Australian Catholic University, Fitzroy, Australia
University of Otago, Dunedin, New Zealand
IFIP INTERNATIONAL FEDERATION FOR INFORMATION PROCESSING -- 260
This collection of papers presents a very comprehensive overview of the
concerns and developments in the use of Information and Communication
Technologies that are currently of relevance to educators and educational
policy makers across the globe. While the papers in one sense incorporate
wide-ranging perspectives deriving from varying national contexts, their
grouping within topic areas reveals more commonalities of concern than
The first topic area, The Teacher of the Future as a Professional, focuses
on the changing requirements for both the initial preparation and the
continuing professional education of teachers. The second area, Classroom
Roles of the Teacher of the Future is concerned more specifically with the
way in which developments in Information and Communication Technologies are
changing the way in which teachers interact with students. Finally, the
section Teaching and Learning Environments of the Future examines a range
of pedagogical scenarios in differing stages of development and
implementation, each of which provides a special insight into how the
"classroom of the future" might function.
This book is one of the outcomes of the Working Conference on "ICT and the
Teacher of the Future", which took place in Melbourne, Australia in January
2003 under the auspices of the International Federation for Information
Processing (IFIP) Technical Committee 3, Working Group 3.1 (Secondary
Education) and Working Group 3.3 (Research). In addition to the text of the
papers delivered by the three keynote speakers, the book comprises a
selection of papers that have been rigorously reviewed and subsequently
undergone an additional process of collaborative editing.
