Abstract

The teaching profession requires Ontario's elementary classroom teachers use information and communication technology (ICT) effectively in their teaching. Despite this requirement, current practices do not demonstrate a province-wide standard or curriculum to support teacher literacy in ICT. This paper reviews policies and publications from the Ontario Ministry of Education, the Ontario College of Teachers, and faculties of education in Ontario to substantiate that Ontario teacher education programs may be insufficiently preparing preservice teachers to meet the ICT requirements of the teaching profession. Looking to models outside of Ontario, recommendations are suggested for improvement.
