  • Communication with Parents & showcasing student work
  • Providing units of work for students
ICT Peer Coaching
Coaching has become a key strategy in helping teachers reflect upon
their practice and build their capacity. ICT is an area that many
teachers feel less confident with.
Building in a program of trained ICT Peer Coaches can encourage
the asking for and receiving of assistance with technologies and the
pedagogies they support. The following schools would be more than
happy for you to contact them to discuss their program:

wide range of subjects. A year 10 English teacher demonstrates

Interactive LCD TV's
Interactive Whiteboards have increasingly become a feature
of our classrooms in Victoria. However many questions still remain
over the changes to pedagogical practice their introduction was
intended to bring about. The Interactive TV is more mobile, is at
students height and has no issues with shadows and callibrating.
This makes it much more likely to be used with small groups of
students rather than as a purely presentation tool.
View a teacher demonstration here.
If you'd like to see them in action in the classroom or have any
questions, contact Beaconsfield Upper Primary School - ph. 0359 443591.
