Graduate Diploma / M.Ed in Information and Communication Technologies in Primary Education


Course Description

This course consists of a one-year taught programme for a Graduate Diploma in Primary Education with the possibility of a further year for a Masters Degree (M.Ed.). Entry to the Masters Programme depends on the achievement of a specified minimum QCA in the Graduate Diploma. It then involves attending one taught module in Research Methods and undertaking a substantial dissertation on an approved topic. The course is designed to provide practicing primary teachers with a holistic approach to the use and application of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) in the Primary School. Teachers will learn how to skilfully and creatively use ICT to support a wide variety of teaching and learning goals as well as administrative and organisational tasks. They will also learn to identify and evaluate how ICT can best be used to support and enhance children’s learning and to appreciate how thoughtful use of ICT can enrich the learning environment of the classroom and school. The course will help teachers to gain a critical perspective on ICT’s overall role in education and its role in society in general.
