Abstract

This symposium will focus on various aspects of information and communication technology (ICT) and teacher training in Canada, including both initial training for future teachers and professional development for more experienced ones. In a few short years, various technologies have made unprecedented inroads into Canada’s elementary and high schools. This extensive penetration is due as much to the appeal of technology as to its oft-claimed potential for education: that it motivates students to learn. This symposium will shed light on some of the key issues in ICT and teacher training in Canada. Topics will include the impacts of one-to-one tablet projects, the social-critical approach to digital technology in education, the active learning classroom, information literacy, geoliteracy, language arts and ICT, and more.
