ICT4RED TTT Course (ICT4RED Train the Trainer Course)
As the ICT4RED TPD tablet training course is an “open” course (see licencing), we would like to see it implemented in ALL our schools employing mobile technologies and ICT for teaching and learning. In schools where tablets have been rolled out, this course is the next step to equip teachers to integrate mobile technologies into their everyday classroom practice. In order to empower schools to capacitate their staff, we need to facilitate training for teacher trainers who in turn can implement the course within their own school/district environments, thereby making it cost effective while making sure that it will be successful.
The ICT4RED Train the Trainer (TTT) course endeavours to give teacher trainers/ICT integrators/ICT champions in schools the knowledge, skills, strategies, apps, technology and course management skills to be able to lead, manage and facilitate course implementation in a school, organisation or district environment. Potential trainers will experience the hands-on participation course from a training point of view, where after they will focus on the management (both technical and pedagogical) of implementing and adapting the course within their own (school/district) context. Maggie Verster and the Digital Education Institute (DEI) maintain the sole rights to the Train the trainer course and while the ICT4RED TPD tablet course can be freely trained on a non-commercial basis in schools and organisations, an accreditation fee will be charged by DEI for monitoring and accreditation of badges. Organisations who would like to partner with us are welcome to talk to us. For more information, contact DEI (Maggie Verster: 0835566962 or Milford Malunga 0825023465)
The ICT4RED TTT course follows a blended Face to Face and online approach and teacher trainers will be taken through all the facets of implementation, tablet skills, badging and support. The 10 modules are divided into 2 five day sessions. Online support, ongoing online training webinars and assessment will assist trainers to successfully implement, train and support their colleagues.
