Abstract

Developing Information Technology (IT) skills in pre-service teachers and identifying IT competencies required of practising teachers is an issue challenging most developed nations. This paper looks at IT capabilities required by a number of educational systems and discusses IT skills developed in the Bachelor of Education (Primary) degree at the University of Melbourne, Australia. Students graduating from this degree will be K-6 (also known as primary or elementary) teachers. The paper illustrates the development of IT skills over the four years of the course with the students progressively developing both generic IT skills and IT skills specific to curriculum areas. (Contains 3 tables and 1 figure.)
