As part of a previous position I held at theĀ Sha Tin College (part of the English School’s Foundation in Hong Kong) I developed and delivered a year-long CPD course to help teachers develop their ICT skills. The aim was to produce a challenging course that forced teachers to confront ICT in numerous ways, thus building confidence and competence. As it was all created under a Creative Commons license, it is available for anyone to use!

Introduction

A comprehensive ICT training course for teachers looking for a solid foundation and enhanced confidence. A maximum of 23 contact hours spread over an academic year, with the option of lunch time or after school learning.

The program leads to a Level 1 Certification, via assessment, and covers hardware and software basics, classroom technology, office software, Internet use and basic graphics.

Designed and run specifically for Sha Tin College. More information will be emailed to SC Teaching Staff.
