Developing student teachers’ digital competence in Norwegian teacher education

FINDING MEANINGFUL WAYS OF TEACHING ESL WITH ICT

17 June 2015


A Research on Learning and Education Innovation seminar with Fredrik Mørk Røkenes.

How are student teachers prepared to teach with ICT and what is the role of teacher education? Teacher education has been criticised for not sufficiently preparing student teachers to teach with ICT in new and innovative ways. In order to meet curricular demands and the expectations of the “New Millennium Learners”, teacher-education programs must prepare student teachers to teach with ICT in today’s technology-rich schools by developing their digital competence.

In this seminar, Fredrik will present and discuss tentative findings from his ongoing PhD study which investigates postgraduate ESL student teachers’ digital-competence development in Norwegian teacher education. The study focuses on uncovering approaches used to prepare student teachers to teach ESL with ICT, and examines how these approaches are potentially enabled and inhibited in Norwegian teacher education. Digital storytelling will be used as an example to illustrate a didactical method for student teachers to integrate ICT in ESL teaching, and as a way for teacher-education programs to promote digital competence.

This seminar will be live online at http://webconf.ucc.usyd.edu.au/seminar-room2/.
