Technology provides great opportunities to teachers, both for self-development and in the classroom. Effective integration of technology in teaching can lead to higher student engagement, improved knowledge retention and individual learning, as well as facilitate teamwork and collaboration.

The digital skills that teachers need have long moved on from just being able to use word processing and spreadsheet software. Continuous Professional Development is key to ensuring appropriate digital competences for effective use of ICT in the classroom and to keep up with rapidly evolving technologies.

ICT in Education

ICT in Education is a module developed specifically for teachers and learning professionals, which develops the skills and knowledge required to use ICT resources effectively in a learning environment.

Build your ICDL profile to suit your interests and teaching needs

ICDL is modular, which means you can choose the modules that best suit your needs. Our programmes offer teachers a wealth of options to ensure you have the digital skills to excel in your teaching career and provide the best learning environment for your students.

Every teacher should be proficient in the ICDL Workforce modules.

In addition to essential computer and online skills, all teachers should be skilled in the use of productivity tools, not just because they are the best tools for teaching, but also because they are excellent tools for learning. Whilst office applications are widely used, they are often not used to full effect. In addition, Good Practice modules help to ensure that any technology used is both safe and appropriate for the learning environment.

Consider advanced digital skills to excel in your teaching career

ICDL modules offer a wealth of more advanced digital skills proven beneficial to teachers. Consider ICDL Professional modules such as 2D or 3D Design, to use drawing tools, which, when combined with other productivity tools, are invaluable for spicing up handouts, worksheets and slides. Or maybe ICDL Insights, short courses with exceptional eLearning, to gain conceptual understanding of trending and emerging technology.
