Teachers in 21st-century classrooms use a wide variety of media to support student learning. Interactive technologies are at the forefront in these multimodal environments, providing diverse tools to meet students’ needs. As well, they create opportunities for expanding teachers’ pedagogic capabilities and maximizing efficiency.

Twenty-first century technologies are crucial for preparing students for the “real” world. Technology can help to improve students’ writing, reading, collaboration, critical thinking, and problem-solving skills. Computers engage students’ thinking and learning in ways different from other classroom tools. They require a corresponding pedagogic approach—a style and different from more traditional teaching methods.

Integration of computers and technology in the classroom is not always easy. Computers can seem temperamental and students’ tech skills are diverse. Teachers must align computer use with curricular demands and students’ learning needs.

Integration of Information and Computer Technology in Instruction Part 2 presents you with key issues, practical strategies, links to resources, and opportunities to interact with your peers. Completion of this course will increase your confidence, knowledge, and competence with technology. These gains will benefit you as a professional and enhance your students’ learning which, of course, is always our foremost aim.

In this course you will have the opportunity to:

• connect Ontario curriculum expectations to technology use
• explore various ways of communicating online with peers, students, and parents
• share ideas with peers
• create potential student activities
• develop a roadmap for your own professional development with respect to computer use

Application Requirements

1) OCT Membership showing completion of Part 1


Signed by a Supervisory Official* from your Board confirming that you have one year (194 days) of teaching experience since becoming a certified teacher.

*The Ontario College of Teachers defines "Supervisory Official" as the Superintendent or Assistant Superintendent of the school board for a teacher employed by a Board of Education. A principal or headmaster is not recognized in this capacity. For a teacher employed by a private school, the "supervisory official" is the Ministry of Education official (Education Officer) appointed to your school. For overseas experience the appropriate Supervisory Official is the person your Principal reports to.

**Please note that if you have an existing Part 2, Part 3 (Specialist), or Honour Specialist qualification on your OCT record you are not required to submit a form for a Part 2 course. A new form is always required for Part 3 (Specialist).
