AITSL - Teacher standards ICT
As teachers we are accountable for our teaching. The National Professional Standards for Teachers has been developed by AITSL (Australian Institute for Teaching and School Leadership).
The purpose of the standards: "The National Professional Standards for Teachers is a public statement of what
constitutes teacher quality. The Standards define the work of teachers and make explicit
the elements of high-quality, effective teaching in 21st-century schools, which result
in improved educational outcomes for students."
The standards are formatted into 3 Domains
And each domain into the following career stages:
Although many of the standards can integrate ICT, those that explicitly mention ICT are as follows (each has an explanation of the outcome at a Highly Accomplished career stage):
