AN INNOVATIVE TEACHER-TRAINING COURSE INCLUDING THE INTEGRATION OF ICT: THE EXPLO PROJECT OF THE ICHTHUS UNIVERSITY
Full recordShow full item record
AbstractThe Explo project of the Ichthus University trains primary school teachers with vision and skills in the handling of ICT. Explo is a new, experimental teacher training course, related to the Dutch government's Prommitt program (see also Panel session). Explo is meant to be an educational response to the challenges posed by the knowledge society. One of these challenges is that both pupils and students must be prepared for the learn-as-they-work concept of organizations. Another challenge is that ICT plays a key role in these developments. The first part of this paper explains the view of Explo on the use of ICT in education. The second part deals with the Explo course in detail and gives information on the course program.
