PictoPal 2009, The teacher as an enactor of an ICT-rich curriculum for emergent literacy
This study focused on the teacher as an enactor of an ICT-rich curriculum for emergent literacy, called PictoPal. The study examined teachers’ perceptions about education, ICT and innovations and how they enacted the PictoPal curriculum in their classroom. In addition also pupils’ learning outcomes were examined.
How do teachers’ perceptions of education and ICT impact the enactment of an ICT-rich curriculum for emergent literacy and how does the teachers’ enactment of the curriculum impact pupils’ learning outcomes?
Findings of the study suggest that a developmental approach to kindergarten education, positive attitudes and expectations towards ICT-based innovations, and positive perceptions on support in hampering work conditions relate to a high or moderate extent of ICT integration.
