Abstract

This paper will discuss the general challenge and related dilemmas involved in designing, developing and teaching foundation subjects in teacher education which integrate ICT. Foundation ICT courses in teacher education are important for two related reasons: (a) as a focus for the transition from ‘old’ to ‘new’ learning (especially in terms of how ICT extends oral and print modes of literacy and learning); and (b) a basis for going beyond a merely add-on or specialized approach to ICT in education and developing a more effective integrated approach for across-the-curriculum purposes. This discussion paper will therefore: (a) attempt to identify some key issues and dilemmas involved with attempting to design effective ICT foundation courses; (b) outline some exploratory principles of ‘what is needed’ to effectively integrate in ICT teacher foundation courses; and (c) provide a basis for further discussion.
