ICT Across the Curriculum

Parents and caregivers of Class 5NM...
The Australian Curriculum - ICT Capability
It is not enough for students simply to learn about ICT. Students should be learning about, in, and through ICT across all learning areas.

Hence, the Australian Curriculum names "ICT Capability" as one of its seven General Capabilities.
So, how will we equip the students to apply social and ethical protocols and practices?
Budd:e
What are the General Capabilities?
St Brighid's School
Class 5NM

ICT = Information and Communication Technology
Why focus on ICT at school?

"The
Melbourne Declaration on the Educational Goals for Young Australians
(MCEETYA 2008) recognises that in a digital age, and with rapid
and continuing changes in the ways people share, use, develop and communicate with ICT, young people need to be highly skilled in its use. To participate in a knowledge-based economy and to be empowered within a technologically sophisticated society now and into the future, students need the knowledge, skills and confidence to make ICT work for them at school, at home, at work and in their communities"
(ACARA, 2014).
In other words...
Your children are growing up in a digital world, and they need to be digital citizens in order to navigate that world and to make the most of the exciting opportunities it presents.
Why is it important to teach children about safe, responsible and ethical use of ICT?
A 2011 study found that,
almost half of 5-8-year-old students indicated that they had not been educated about internet safety.
almost half of 5-8-year-olds were unable to identify potential risks when presented with potentially dangerous situations while using ICT.
while students were able to list potential dangers associated with ICT usage, they were not adequately equipped to recognise and respond to these risks in practice.
The study concluded that, "Internet risks for children can be reduced through education in their recognition of potential dangers, recall and management strategies, indicating a need for schools to incorporate internet safety into curricula."

(Ey & Cupit, 2011, p. 55.)


What does this have to do with us?
"It is essential that educational institutions work in partnership with families to teach children protective strategies they can use whenever they access the internet" (Ey & Cupit, 2011, p. 63).
Thank you for accessing this Prezi.
We in Class 5NM are about to embark on an exciting unit of work about text types. During this unit, students will experiment with creating different types of texts using ICT. In the light of this, I think that now is an opportune time to speak with you about your children, school and ICT.
I hope that you will find this resource informative, and that it will help equip you to work in partnership with the staff at St Brighid's School to empower your children to engage in safe, responsible and ethical use of ICT at school and at home.
The Australian Professional Standards for Teachers indicate that teachers at the graduate level should, "Demonstrate an understanding of the relevant issues and the strategies available to support the safe. responsible and ethical use of ICT in learning and teaching."


You can read more about the Standards at http://www.aitsl.edu.au/australian-professional-standards-for-teachers/standards/list
"The general capabilities encompass the knowledge, skills, behaviours and dispositions that, together with curriculum content in each learning area and the cross-curriculum priorities, will assist students to live and work successfully in the twenty-first century" (ACARA, 2014).
They are qualities which we wish to emphasise across all areas of the curriculum in pursuit of the Melbourne Declaration goal of supporting students to become successful learners, creative and confident individuals, and active and informed citizens.
The ICT capability is represented throughout the curriculum by this symbol:
When you see the ICT symbol below a content descriptor, it indicates that that part of the curriculum contributes to students' development of the ICT capability.
There are 5 "organisng elements" incorporated in the ICT capability, as shown in the diagram below.
Applying social and ethical protocols and practices when using ICT
Let's have a closer look at this element, examining what students have learned in earlier years, and what they should be able to do by the end of Level 4 (Years 5&6).
During our unit on text types, Class 5NM will have a special focus on the first organising element - applying social and ethical protocols and practices when using ICT.
Recognise Intellectual Property
In Levels 1-3 (F-Yr4), students grew to recognise and understand their own and others' ownership over digital work. By Level 3, students began to acknowledge their sources when using other people's work.
The Australian Curriculum states that, during Level 4 (Yrs5&6), students should learn to:
Apply Digital Information and Security Practices
In Levels 1-3, students learned how to follow instructions in regard to logging on/off and saving their work. They began to understand why such information and security procedures were necessary, and to be able to apply them independently.
The Australian Curriculum states that, during Level 4, students should learn to:

Apply Personal Security Protocols
In Levels 1-3, students began to understand social protocols including being polite online, withholding personal information, and interacting only with people they know. Students were introduced to the notion of cyberbullying.
The Australian Curriculum states that, during Level 4, students should learn to:
Identify the Impacts of ICT on Society
In Levels 1-3, students began to identify different forms and purposes of ICT, and to appreciate the value and role of ICT at home and at school.
The Australian Curriculum states that, during Level 4, students should learn to:
Before commencing the unit of work on text types, all students in Class 5NM will complete the Budd:e program. This program was developed by the Australian Government. Budd:e is a fun, engaging and effective way for Australian students in Year 3 or above to learn about safe, responsible and ethical use of ICT.
Please view the short introductory video to the Budd:e primary module at this address:
https://budd-e.staysmartonline.gov.au/teachers/primary/budde.html
Cybersmart
Students will also be exposed to Cybersmart, a resource developed by the Australian Communications and Media Authority as part of the Australian Government's commitment to the cybersafety initiative. According to the creators, Cybersmart is "designed to support and encourage participation in the digital economy by providing information and education which empowers children to be safe online" (ACMA, 2014).
Cybersmart aims to equip students to become cybersmart digital citizens who are able to:
engage
positively
know their
online world
choose
consciously
The Cybersmart website has fact sheets, videos, games and access to online counselling. You can access the resource at home, at this address:
http://www.cybersmart.gov.au/

The Unit
Prior to commencing the unit on text types, all students will:
complete the Budd:e primary module
sign a Cyber-Safe Use Agreement in accordance with DECD policy.
Parents will need to sign the agreement as well.
You can read the DECD Cybersafety Guidelines for Schools and Preschools here:
be issued with a school email address, and a unique and confidential log-on and password
http://www.decd.sa.gov.au/docs/documents/1/CyberSafetyKeepingChildre.pdf
Our unit on text types will primarily address these two content descriptors for English Literacy:
We will be learning about and creating a number of non-ICT-specific text types, including
letters
journals and diaries
narratives
persuasive articles
critical responses
poetry
We will be using ICT in several cases to edit and publish our work.
We will also be engaging with some ICT-specific texts, including
email
blog posts
social media
Copyright and Licensing
As safe, responsible and ethical ICT users, it is important that we consider copyright and licensing regulations when publishing our work online.
Creative Commons licences enable teachers and students to use and adapt online material with relative freedom.
All material is automatically covered by copyright as soon as it is created. It is illegal to reuse or adapt material under copyright.
In our unit, we will use the Creative Commons search engine to access images, music and other media which we are free to use in publishing our work.
"The main focus is on what you CAN do with the material rather than what you cannot do" (Creative Commons, 2014).
Does social media have a place in the classroom?
According to ACMA (2013, p. 8), 78% of eight to nine year olds and 92% of 10-11 year olds have used a social network.
Social media is becoming an increasingly vital aspect of communication in Australian society. It is important that students learn how to effectively and safely interact with social media.
Students are clearly interested in exploring social media. The classroom provides a safe environment in which students can engage with social media in a safe and educational way.
Don't worry!
We won't be signing your kids up to Facebook!
We'll be using Edmodo, an adapted social media site specifically designed for the school environment.
Edmodo is an excellent medium for sharing ideas and pieces of work. Its design resembles that of other popular social media sites, making it engaging as well as safe.
Parents can access Edmodo too! This will facilitate increased communication between school and home, and will allow you to become more actively involved in your child's learning.
You can learn more about Edmodo here:
https://www.edmodo.com/about
Before we begin using Edmodo, written agreements about social media use at school will be signed by staff, parents and teachers, in accordance with the DECD Social Media Policy.
"The intention of this policy is to establish a culture of transparency, trust and integrity in social media activities and to encourage the integration of social media into our teaching and learning environments"
(DECD 2013, p. 3).
You can access the policy here:

I hope this Prezi has been entertaining and informative.
All St Brighid's parents and caregivers are invited to attend an ICT information session on October 24th in the assembly hall to learn more about the ICT general capability and the exciting new pathways we are taking in digital education.
Please contact me or our ICT coordinator, Ms McDonald, with any questions.
And remember...
If you type 'Google' into Google, you
can
break the internet.
So, please, no one try it, even for a joke.
