Building teacher capability

Great opening session at the Apple Education Summit 2024 and a theme I can relate to. Building teacher capability in using technology in their classrooms and as part of learning.

Teachers being trained on iPads

Easier said than done in adult education, and specifically the VET sector with industry driven learning outcomes, an ageing workforce, lots of machinery, hand tools, chemicals and many safety hazards.

My approach has been to link how technology is used in industry and how technology is transforming jobs. I work with teachers to redesign activities and assessments that use technology to achieve required outcomes. For example nursing students using a selfie video to demonstrate a Handover, mechanic students using digital job cards on mobile devices.

By collaborating with industry and teachers we are providing opportunities to build capabilities, modernising our training, engaging students and achieving learning outcome.
