ICT and Behaviour Management in PDHPE (EDUH3017)


This unit of study focuses on two key emerging issues in 21st centrury health and physical education classrooms, namely behavior management and Information and Communication Technology (ICT). With a focus on the ways in which effective communication contributes to quality learning environments and improved student-teacher relationships the unit examines numerous behavior and classroom management strategies, and considers the ways in which ICT may act as a form of classroom management. Through an examination of case studies, theories, theorists and positive learning frameworks students will be given the opportunity to create their own classroom management plan. Additionally, students will develop an array of basic ICT operational skills that will assist them to design and develop pedagogically informed teaching and learning experiences focused on building student engagement. This unit is strongly linked to State and National curriculum and policy imperatives around ICT, understanding diverse learners, and futures oriented teaching.
