Advisory Matters

See on Scoop.ittech | design | education

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

 

Learning Experiences

 

Planning, Assessment & Evaluation

 

Work and Learning

 

Digital Citizenship

 

Professional Growth and Practice

 

Innovation and Creativity

 

Resources

Thomas Adam Johnson‘s insight:

This is a structure for schools to recognise and gauge technology development.
