The Digital Era: We’re clearly all living in it – and teachers are on the front line. Within a decade, the iPad went from brand-new invention to a common classroom tool. That demonstrated how quickly classroom teachers have had to adapt in the Digital Era. Not only have teachers navigated new technologies for their lesson delivery, but they now also find themselves in the role of teaching digital literacy.
All this highlights one thing – our pre-service teachers need equally evolving education and support. They require the skills and confidence to utilise technology in the classroom, and to adapt to new technologies throughout their careers.
