The International Technology in Education Mark (ITEM) is an accreditation scheme for International Schools. Derived from the UK’s ICT Mark and ISTE’s NETS, the scheme enables schools to self-review their ICT provision across all areas of the school, from administration to integrating ICT into the curriculum. It is accredited by Naace, the professional association for educators interested in advancing education through ICT, and an ISTE affiliate.
ITEM sets out a structure of elements, strands and aspects to facilitate self-evaluation, benchmarking and action planning.
The eight elements are:
Leadership and Vision
Planning, Assessment & Evaluation
Work and Learning
Professional Growth and Practice
Innovation and Creativity
This is a structure for schools to recognise and gauge technology development.
