Information and Communications Technologies and Teacher Professional Learning Policy and Practice in Scotland: Some Primary School Perspectives
Rae, Ann; O'Brien, Jim
Journal of In-service Education, v33 n4 p425-441 Dec 2007
Teacher professional learning and development has recently come to the fore in Scotland as the government and bodies representing teachers view professional development and learning as important ingredients in the renewal of the profession in the context of the post-"McCrone Report" arrangements for teacher conditions of service and remuneration. This paper considers the issues associated with the emergence of a framework of teacher standards and how some primary teachers engaged in professional development and learning in information and communications technologies relate to the aims and objectives of this framework in the context of their own and their students' needs.
