Q10.                  What barriers do you experience in using online technologies for teaching and
                      learning? You selected "other" please specify

FILTER: OTHER
ACCESS TO CERTAIN MODULES OF WEBCT/BLACKBOARD RESTRICTED SUBJECT TO COMPLETION OF TRAINING, VERY GOOD WITH IT
TYPE THINGS, NO NEED FOR THIS FALSE BARRIER.
ADMINISTRATIVE PROBLEM E.G. INSTALLING SOFTWARE, UPGRADE HARDWARE LACK OF TECHNICAL SUPPORT.
APPROPRIATE RECOGNITION BY THE INSTITUTION OF THE WORKLOAD AND RESOURCE ISSUES IN USING THE ELECTRONIC SYSTEMS
PARTICULARLY BLACKBOARD.
AUSTRALIA HAS A VERY SLOW (HIGH SPEED) INTERNET CONNECTION THEREFORE IT OFTEN TAKES A WHILE TO ACCESS THINGS AT
THE CLICK OF A BUTTON BOTH AT HOME AND WORK. READING THE PAPER ONLINE IS VERY FRUSTRATING. THESE TYPES OF ISSUES
ALSO OCCUR AT TAFE WHERE STUDENTS FIND IT DIFFCULT AND SLOW TO USE VERY OFTEN. OTHER ISSUES ARE CERTAIN SITES
THAT ARE BLOCKED FROM ACCESS TO THE STUDENT AND LECTURER. OTHER ISSUES ARE ALSO THAT THE ONLINE MATERIAL COULD
BE DEVELOPED TO BE MUCH MORE INTERACTIVE.
BUREAUCRATIC AND TIME-WASTING RED-TAPE (E.G., DIFFERENT LOGINS AND PASSWORDS FOR DIFFERENT UNIVERSITY SYSTEMS)
COMPUTER CRASHING CONNECTION TOO SLOW, I'M NOT A FAST TYPIST
DEFENCE LIMITS STUDENT ACCESS TO THE INTERNET; AND OUR STUDENTS ARE MAINLY DEFENCE. WE HAVE HAD TO CHOOSE OUR
LMS TO SUIT THIS RESTRICTION, AND USE OTHER SOFTWARE THAN USUAL TO GET THROUGH THIS RESTRICTION
DIFFICULTY FINDING WHERE THE RELEVANT INFORMATION IS ON DEPARTMENTAL INTRANETS
DIFFICULTY WITH STUDENT LITERACY LEVELS
FACE TO FACE COMMUNICATION, ESPECIALLY FOR LANGUAGE LEARNING, ENGLISH OR OTHER LANGUAGE LEARNING REQUIRES REAL
TIME INTERACTION
FIXED CURRICULUM WITHOUT FREEDOM TO EXPERIMENT WITH OTHER WAYS OF LEARNING. TOO MUCH REQUIRED TO BE COVERED
IN TOO SHORT A TIME PERIOD, PARTICULARLY IN THE AREA OF MATHS.
HAVE TO SEARCH / INVESTIGATE A LOT FOR SPECIFIC ANSWERS IN SPECIFIC SUBJECTS, VIZ SYSTEMS ADMINISTRATION OR
SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT
I AM NOT ABLE TO CONNECT TO THE INTERNET AT HOME ON MY LAPTOP. OUR HOME COMPUTER CANNOT READ PDF FILES AND IS A
BIT OLD TO COPE WITH THE REQUIREMENTS OF USING THE INTENET FOR WORK AT HOME.
I DO NOT WORK IN AN AREA THAT NEEDS TO USE TEACHING AND LEARNING TOOLS
I WORK WITH STAFF TO HELP THEM DEVELOP ONLINE CONTENT. I FREQUENTLY HAVE PROBLEMS WITH STAFF WHO ARE UNABLE TO
CONFIDENTLY UTILISE OUR LMS, OR UNDERSTAND ONLINE ENVIRONMENTS GENERALLY AT A LEVEL WHEREBY THEY CAN LEVERAGE
THESE TECHNOLOGIES TO TEACH.
INSUFFICIENT TIME
INTERMITTENT TECHNOLOGICAL FAILURES PAYING FOR IT FROM HOME FOR AFTER HOURS ACCESS POORLY DESIGNED AND
INFLEXIBLE LEARNING MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS (AND WEAK DESIGN OF THE SITES IN THEM)
JUST THE FRUSTRATION, LIKE YESTERDAY. BEFORE THE LESSON I HAD USED GOOGLE EARTH TO FING VILLERS-BRETENNOUX
(TALKING ABOUT ANZAC DAY,) DURING THE LESSON GOOGLE EARTH WAS SO SLOW TO LOAD THAT THE POINT OF IT WAS LOST. I WAS
TRYING TO SHOW THE ZOOM OUT FROM OUR SCHOOL, TURNING EARTH AND ZOOM INTO VB. USING THE IWB SHOULD HAVE BEEN
GREAT, BUT.....
JUST TO STRESS THE IMNPLICATIONS WHEN ICT DECIDE TO BLOCK RATHER THAN LOOK AT A PEDAGOGICAL APPROACH TO FREEING
A LOT MORE OF THE WEB2.0 STUFF - THEY NEED TO 'RISK MANAGE' AS WE ARE ADULT EDUCATION BASED AND BE HONEST THAT ITS
IS NOTHING TO DO WITH CENSORSHIP BUT RATHER ENFORCED BAND WIDTH AND DOWNLOAODING LIMITATIONS !!
KEEPING INFORMED AND UP TO DATE WITH EMERGING TECHNOLOGIES AND INFO RELATED TO THAT
KNOWING WHAT TO LOOK FOR SO AS NOT TO WASTE TIME
LACK OF FUNDS TO DEVELOP A SOFTWARE LIBRARY




                                      education.au 2008                                             Page 40 of 160
LACK OF MONEY - GOVERNMENT SCHOOLS IN POORER AREAS DO NOT HAVE THE MONEY TO SUBSCRIBE TO EXPENSIVE DATABASES
AND ON LINE SERVICES
LACK OF TECHNOLOGICAL EQUIPMENT FOR DOWNLOADING VIDEOS, PODCASTS, ETC
LACK OF TIME TO PURSUE EVERYTHING I WANT TO! TOO MANY RESOURCES!
LACK OF TIME TO RESEARCH
LACK OF TIME TO SIT DOWN AND FOLLOW THROUGH LOTS OF RECOMMENDED SITES OR PRODUCTS
LIMITED TIME TO DEVELOPE ONLINE SERVICES.
MANY SITE WITH APPROPRIATE EDUCATIONAL RESOURCES REQUIRE SUBSCRIPTION/PAYMENT - NO CAPACITY FOR A GOVERNMENT
SCHOOL TO SUBSCRIBE
MORE THAN A BARRIER, IT IS ANNOYING THAT WE AS EDUCATORS AND THE STUDENTS AS LEARNERS COME ACROSS SO MANY
INAPPROPRIATE SITES DURING THEIR RESEARCH. AS A SCHOOL WE FIND IT HARD TO TRACE AND BLOCK THESE SITES
MUCH OF MY WORK INVOLVES RESEARCHING HOW EMERGING TECHNOLOGY CAN BE USED TO SUPPORT/EMPOWER LEARNING AND
TEACHING. DUE TO THE INNOVATIVE NATURE OF MY FIELD, I FIND THE MAIN BARRIER IS THE FACT MINIMAL LITERATURE EXISTS ON
USE-CASES, RATHER THAN SOMETHING DIRECTLY RELATED TO THE TECHNOLOGY ITSELF.
NEED MORE USEABLE MOBILE INTERNET ACCESS - PHONE TOO SMALL, LAPTOP TOO CLUNKY, WIRELESS PATCHY, ETC.
NEED SOME PD IN MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS
NO WIRELESS ACCESS POINTS AVAILABLE FOR STUDENTS OR STAFF, BLOCKING OF USEFUL SITES, UNRELIABLE INTERNET
CONNECTIONS DUE TO CRAPPY PROXY SERVER, AND OUTDATED SYSTEMS AND WORK CULTURE THAT DOESNT WANT TO MOVE TO
ONLINE TEACHING.
OCCASIONAL SERVER DOWNTIME (OLDER EQUIPMENT). ACCESS FOR STUDENTS VIA LAPTOPS (MUCH IMPROVED RECENTLY).
OUR DEPARTMENT OPERATES FROM AN ENVIRONMENT OF FEAR OF THE NET. ATTEMPTS TO RESTRICT ACCESS OF STUDENTS TO
"OFFENSIVE MATERIAL" HAS SEEN MOST WEB 2.0 SITES BLOCKED AND PROVES A SIGNIFICANT BARRIER NOT ONLY TO STAFF TRYING
TO USE THE WEB BUT ALSO TO OUR CREDIBILITY. WE SHOULD BE TEACHING KIDS TO READ CRITICALLY AND RESEARCH WISELY. THE
APPROACH OF CONTROLLING WEB USE IS COUNTER PRODUCTIVE AND SHORT SIGHTED.
PAYMENT FOR USE OF SOME WEB SITES.
POOR ACCESS AS IN WHEN YOU TYPE IN A SEARCH, EG BULLETINS, DOES NOT GO STRAIGHT TO WHERE YOU WANT TO BE AND
SOMETIMES CANNOT EVEN FIND WHAT YOU ARE LOOKING FOR? OBVIOUSLY I AM NOT EXPERIENCED ENOUGH TO KNOW WHERE TO
LOOK.
POWER SUPPLY. SCHOOLS INFRASTRUCTURE IS SUCH THAT NETWORKS HAVE BECOME AN IMOPORTANT TOOL FOR ADMINISTRATION
AND LEARNING. WHEN COMPUTERS ARE MADE AVAILABLE, CONSIDERATION NEEDS TO BE GIVEN TO UPGRADING THE POWER
SUPPLY PRIOR TO THE INSTALLATION OF HARDWARE. FLUCTUATING POWER SUPPLY IN COUNTRY AREAS HAS ALSO BEEN AN ISSUE.
PROBLEMS DOWNLOADING VARIOUS MEDIA PLAYERS -- MIGHT BE DUE TO BLOCKING OF INSTITUTIONAL INTERNET ACCESS
RELIABILITY OF SERVICE
SIMPLY FINDING THE TIME TO SPEND FINDING USEFUL RESOURCES AND LEARNING HOW TO USE THEM. THERE IS NO TIME DURING
THE DAY TO ACCESS AND THERE IS ONLY SO MUCH TIME ONE'S FAMILY CAN ALLOW ONE AT NIGHT AND ON WEEKENDS TO ACCESS
THE INTERNET.
SOMETIMES TOO MUCH JUNK ON LINE TO SHIFT THROUGH
STUDENTS AND OTHERS WILLINGNESS TO ENGAGE WITH THE TECHNOLOGY
STUDENTS LACK CONFIDENCE IN THE USE OF COMPUTERS
SYSTEM BREAKDOWNS AND REGIGGING OF THE SCHOOL SERVER. STUDENTS NOT BE ABLE TO ACCESS SOFTWARE. ON LINE
SURVEYS NOT WORKING (NOT THIS ONE!).
THE TIME INVOLVED WITH EMAILS IN PARTICULAR - TAKES AWAY FROM RESEARCH AND TEACHING PREPARATION TIME
THERE IS EITHER NOTHING SUITABLE OR TOO MUCH TO SORT THROUGH
TIME
TIME - LACK OF
TIME - SEARCHING FOR IDEAS, RESOURCES AND UPDATED PEDAGOGY TAKES A LOT OF TIME. I STILL NEED TO PLAN AND ASSESS
STUDENT DEVELOPMENT AND TRY TO HAVE FAMILY TIME. INFORMATION OVERLOAD - THE AMOUNT OF INFORMATION ON THE
INTERNET IS INCREDIBLE. THERE IS SO MUCH OUT THERE AND WEEDING THROUGH THE IRRELEVANT INFORMATION TO FIND THE
GOOD STUFF IS VERY TIME CONSUMING AND TIRING. I GET DISTRACTED ON GO ON MANY DIFFERENT TANGENTS DUE TO THE
EXCITING AND INTERESTING INFORMATION I HAVE ACCESS TO.
TIME AVAILABLE
TIME BARRIERS, I.E. I WOULD LIKE TO "PLAY" WITH NEW TECHNOLOGIES TO IMPROVE MY SKILLS BUT DON'T HAVE THE TIME
REQUIRED TO DO THIS AT PRESENT.




                                      education.au 2008                                                Page 41 of 160
TIME REQUIRED TO SIFT THROUGH APPROPRIATE TEACHING RESOURCES. FINDING IT MORE HELPFUL TO JOIN BLOGS AND USE
RECOMMENDED SITES
TIME TO LEARN. I WOULD LIKE TO BE ABLE TO USE MOODLE, DELICIOUS, THE NEW LAMS CREATE BOLGS AND A LIBRARY WIKI.
TIME TO SEARCH FOR AND EVALUATE RELEVANT RESOURCES
TIME TO SEARCH FOR USEFUL RESOURCES. A CENTRAL WORK GROUP COULD DO THE HACK WORK.
TIME TO SELF EDUCATE
TIME. THERE IS SO MUCH JUNK TO FILTER THROUGH TO GET TO WHAT IS WANTED
TIME: NEED BLOCKS OF TIME TO 'USE' THE INTERNET TO ITS FULLEST CAPACITY
UNSUITABILITY OF PEOPLESOFT FOR TERTIARY INSTITUTION
VARIABLE STUDENT ACCESS LACK OF FLEXIBILITY OF COPYRIGHTED MATERIALS SELF PACED NATURE OF COURSE
VERY SLOW SPEED OF INTERENT AND THE COMPUTERS IN GENERAL
WE HAVE A SET OF 12 LAPTOPS, THAT USE WIRELESS TECHNOLOGY. HAVE ISSSUES LOGGING ONTO THE NETWORK CAUSES
TEACHER AND STUDENT FRUSTRATION. ALSO BATTERY LIFE WAS/IS REALLY PATHETIC SO NOW THEY ARE NO LONGER REALLY
PORTABLE. COST OF REPLACEMENT BATTERIES NOT WORTH IT.

Q12.                   What are the reasons for your opinion?

ACT
WORKING IN A COMPLEX, HYBRID, INFORMATION ENVIRONMENT, THE INTERNET IS NOW THE MAJOR MEANS OF ACCESS TO ONLINE
RESOURCES AND SERVICES PROVIDED BY OTHERS TO US AND ALSO FOR PROVIDING OUR RESOURCES AND SERVICES TO OUR
CLIENTS.



NSW
1) I CAN ACCESS SCHOLARLY DATABASES AND DISCIPLINE-SPECIFIC ONLINE JOURNALS EASILY AND CONVENIENTLY - CRUCIAL FOR
MAINTAINING MY RESEARCH OUTPUT. 2) I CAN EFFICIENTLY SUPPLEMENT TRADITIONALLY DELIVERED LECTURES AND TUTORIALS
AND GIVE STUDENTS QUICK ACCESS TO OTHER MATERIAL.
10 YEARS AGO I WOULD HAVE SAID "NOT VERY IMPORTANT". NOW, EMAIL HAS REPLACED FAX & AIRMAIL FOR COMMUNICATION
WITH RESEARCHERS AROUND THE WORLD. PROFESSORS COMMUNICATE WITH STUDENTS BY EMAIL, BUT STUDENTS OFTEN DO NOT
READ THEM BECAUSE THEY'RE USERS OF TEXT MESSAGING. MOST IMPORTANT TO ME IS THE ABILITY TO USE THE ARCHIVES OF
MAJOR MUSEUMS - THEIR VISUAL & WRITTEN RECORDS - FROM MY OFFICE. WHOLE NEW AREAS OF RESEARCH ARE OPENED UP, &
SHORT RESEARCH TRIPS OVERSEAS CAN BE WELL PLANNED.
12
ACCESS RESOURCES FOR TEACHING. COMMUNICATE WITH STUDENTS AND STAFF, COLLEAGUES OVERSEAS, USE THE INTRANET TO
MANAGE COURSE COORDINATION RESPONSIBILITIES, RAPID ACCESS TO POLICIES, PUBLICATIONS.
ACCESS TO EVIDENCE BASED RESEARCH
ACCESS TO INFORMATION UNOBTAINABLE ANY OTHER WAY. ACCESS TO CURRENT INFORMATION. A COLLABORATIVE WORK TOOL.
ACCESS TO PEOPLE ACCESS TO INFORMATION
ALL OF MY WORK ENCOMPASSES THE DIGITAL WORLD - WEB BASED EMAIL FOR CONSTANT COMMUNICATION AND NETWORKING -
BETWEEN WORKING AT HOME AND BEING IN 'THE OFFICE', RESEARCHING ONLINE, TEACHING ONLINE MEDIA, TRANSFERRING FILES
TO CLIENTS/COLLEAGUES/STUDENTS - THIS ALL REQUIRES ACCESS TO THE INTERNET ACCESS AND A RELIABLE AND FAST
BROADBAND INTERNET CONNECTION.
ALL OUR STUDENTS - BOTH UNSW AND EXTERNAL PROFESSIONALS - EXPECT ONLINE CAPACITY OF SOME SORT TO COMPLEMENT
THE LEARNING/COURSES WE PROVIDE. IT'S NOT NEGOTIABLE FOR US.
ALMOST EVERYTHING I DO HAS AN INTERNET COMPONENT.
BECAUSE ALTHOUGH I INDICATED I USE THE WEB MAINLY AT WORK I ALSO RELY ON IT AT HOME. I HAVE A FAMILY AND THIS ENABLES
ME TO WORK THE KILLING HOURS REQUIRED TO DO MY JOB AND BE WITH MY CHILDREN. DESPITE ITS LIMITATIONS THE WEB IS
ALREADY BETTER THAN ANY INDIVIDUAL LIBRARY, AND THERE IS NO GEOGRAPHICAL BOUNDARY.
BECAUSE THIS UNIVERSITY IS SOLIDLY BASED AROUND THE INTRANET. ALSO FOR RESEARCH
CAN ACCESS INFORMATION QUICKLY, CAN COMMUNICATE WITH STUDENTS AND STAFF QUICKLY AND EFFECTIVELY -NOT LIMITED BY
TIME
CANT WORK WITHOUT IT




                                       education.au 2008                                               Page 42 of 160
COMMUNICATING WITH STUDENTS, LIBRARY, RESEARCHING AND COLLEAGUES
COMMUNICATION WITH DISTANCE STUDENTS
COMMUNICATION, RESEARCH, INSTITUTIONAL REPOSITORY
CONSTANTLY CHANGING ENVIRONMENT SOMETIMES REQUIRE INSTANT ACCESS TO ANSWERS
CONTINUAL USE
COULD NOT EXIST WITHOUT THE INTERNET. IT IS NO LONGER A BOLT ON, IT IS PART OF EVERYDAY EXISTENCE
COULDN'T DO ANY ASPECT OF MY JOB WITHOUT IT, THESE DAYS
CRITICAL. CAN'T WORK WITHOUT IT. EDUCATION IS NO LONGER POSSIBLE WITHOUT THE USE OF ELEARNING AND EDUCATIONAL
TECHNOLOGIES.
CRUCIAL IN ACCESSING RELEVANT RESEARCH AND TEACHING TOOLS
CURRENT PROFESSIONAL INFORMATION IS GENERALLY DISTRIBUTED VIA THE INTERNET
DO U REALLY NEED TO ASK? HAS REVOLUTIONISED LEARNING - BOOKS ARE PASSE MORE OR LESS IN MY FIELD
EASE AND TIMELINESS OF INFORMATION LOCATION, ESPECIALLY ONLINE DATABASES (LIBRARY RESEARCH ETC.)
EASE OF ACCESS TO DATABASES, RESOURCES AND INFORMATION
EASIER TO CREATE LECTURES USING IMAGES ALREADY ON THE WEB, RATHER THAN TRYING TO DIGITISE MY VAST SLIDE
COLLECTION. EASIER TO USE LIBRARY WEBSITE TO ACCESS JOURNALS AND ARTICLES AS PDF'S RATHER THAN HAVE TO
PHYSICALLY LOCATE THE JOURNAL ON THE LIBRARY SHELF AND COPY THE CONTENTS. EASIER TO COMMUNICATE DIRECTLY WITH
STUDENTS RATHER THAN TRY TO REACH THEM BY PHONE. MOST STUDENTS ACCESS THEIR E-MAIL REGULARLY. I DON'T HAVE TIME
TO USE FACEBOOK OR THE OTHER SOCIAL NETWORKING TOOLS.
EASILY ACCESSIBLE, ALL THE INFORMATION IS THERE, MORE UPDATED THAN LIBRARY RESOURCES, SIMPLE LANGUAGE THAT
STUDENTS CAN UNDERSTAND
EASY FAST ACCESS TO ANSWERS TO QUERIES, AMAZING TOOL FOR COMMUNICATION, EXCELLENT STORAGE CAPACITY
EFFECTIVE COMMUNICATION IS EXPECTED TO BE QUICK, IRRESPECTIVE OF LOCATION AND TIME.
ESSENTIAL FOR COMMUNICATION IN A MULTI CAMPUS ENVIRONMENT, DAILY ACCESS TO ONLINE RESOURCES FOR STUDENTS,
PROVIDES A PLATFORM FOR PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT AND COLLEGIALITY.
ESSENTIAL FOR RESEARCH, COMMUNICATION AND MANAGEMENT OF STUDENT LOAD
FOR THE MAJORITY OF MY WORK I USE WEB BASED INFORMATION.
GET INFORMATION FOR RESEARCH AND TEACHING PURPOSES
I ACCESS INFORMATION RELATED TO MY TEACHING AND RESEARCH THROUGH THE INTERNET SEVERAL TIMES DAILY
I AM NOW BEING FORCED TO INTERACT WITH STUDENTS ON LINE RATHER THAN BY PHONE AS IN THE PAST
I AM NOW TOTALLY RELIANT ON THE INTERNETT IN MOST DIMENSIONS OF MY JOB, AND WOULD UTILISE IT IN ONE WAY OR ANOTHER
FOR AT LEAST 40% OF MY WORK TIME
I AM TEACHING WEB DEVELOPMENT THIS SEMESTER. WITHOUT ACCESS TO THE NET I COULD NOT PERFORM MY WORK.
I COULDN'T DO MY RESEARCH WITH OUT THE INTERNET. ALMOST ALL COLABORATION WITH COLLEAGUES, WRITING OF PAPERS FOR
SCHOLARLY JOURNALS, APPLYING FOR RESEARCH TIME ON TELESCOPES AND APPLYING FOR FUNDING GRANTS IS DONE THROUGH
INTERNET FORMS/ EMAIL. THE INTERNET IS AN IMPORTANT PART OF THE TEACHING. THIS IS HOW I UINTERACT WITH LARGE
CLASSES.
I DEVELOP ONLINE CONTENT AND TRAIN STAFF TEACHING ONLINE
I DO A LOT OF RESEARCH ONLINE AND FIND MOST OF MY RESOURCES THERE.
I INCORPORATE USE OF THE INTERNET IN ASSESSABLE COMPONENTS OF MY COURSES
I LECTURE IN CULTURAL PRODUCTION BUT DO NOT OWN A TELEVISION SO INTERNET (AND INTERNET RADIO) ESPECIALLY ABC RN
SITE PROVIDE ACCESS TO CURRENT TRENDS
I LOSE ACCESS FOR AN HOUR I FEEL LIKE MY RIGHT HAND HAS BEEN CUT OFF! EXPECT (AND NEED) INFORMATION TO BE AT MY
FINGERTIPS WHEN I WANT IT. WITHOUT IT A LOT OF ACTIVITIES GRIND TO A HALT.
I NEED IT TO SEARCH FOR ALTERNATIVE RESOURCES, COMMUNICATION WITH COLLEAGUES
I RUN TEACH TO A WIDELY DISPERSED GROUP OF STUDENTS (INTERNAL, EXTERNAL AND MOST REGIONAL), SO THE INTERNET IS A
WONDERFUL LEVELLER FOR ALL. I RESEARCH WITH A COMPLEX TEAM AND THE INTERNET IS A GOOD WAY TO ENSURE WE STAY IN
TOUCH AND EXCHANGE NOTES: BETTER THAN ELECTRONIC MAIL. BUT THE CURRENT MANNER OF WEB MANAGEMENT FOR
INTERFACING AND EXCHANGING DATA IS NOT SMOOTH ENOUGH YET FOR THIS TO BE AS EFFECTIVE AS I WOULD LIKE. FINALLY THE
INTERNET INTERFACE FOR PROFESSIONAL LITERATURE IS VITAL.
I SPEND A LARGE AMOUNT OF EACH DAY DOING THINGS VIA THE INTERNET. FRANKLY, I DON'T KNOW HOW WE DID OUR JOB BEFORE
IT WAS AVAILABLE!!




                                     education.au 2008                                              Page 43 of 160
I TEACH ALMOST ENTIRELY ONLINE
I TEACH AND AM UNIT ASSESSOR FOR A UNIT WITH MORE THAN 1200 STUDENTS. WITHOUT BLACKBOARD AND UNIVERSITY
INTRANET I WOULDN'T EVEN KNOW WHICH STUDENTS I WOULD BE RESONSIBLE FOR. THE BLACKBOARD SITE IS INVALUABLE IN
MANAGING THE STUDENT LEARNING. FOR MY RESEARCH THE LIBRARY DATABASES ARE SUPERB.
I TEACH DIGITAL IMAGING IN AN ART SCHOOL IN A REGIONAL UNIVERSITY - THE INTERNET ALLOWS INSTANTANEOUS CONTACT WITH
CONTEMPORARY ARTISTS, PRACTICES AND PROCESSES.
I TEACH, SUPPORT AND COMMUNICATE WITH A LOT OF EXTERNAL OR LONG DISTANCE STUDENTS. THE INTERNET IS CRUCIAL TO ME
IN THESE ROLES. FOR RESEARCH AND PROFESSIONAL NETWORKING, BEING AT A REGIONAL AUSTRALIAN UNIVERSITY, THE
INTERNET BRINGS THE WORLD AND WORLD LEADERS IN MY PROFESSIONS TO MY DOORSTEP SO TO SPEAK.
I USE AM A EVERYDAY USER
I USE IT DAILY. IT ALLOWS ME TO ACCESS SCIENTIFIC DATABASES THAT I WOULD OTHERWISE HAVE TO GO TO THE LIBRARY TO
ACCESS. IT PROVIDES A COMMUNICATION LINK BETWEEN MY STUDENTS AND ME.
I USE IT FOR ALMOST EVERY ASPECT OF MY WORK
I USE IT FOR TEACHING AND RESEARCH ON A DAILY BASIS. SOME OF THE SOFTWARE I NEED (ARCGIS, ERDAS IMAGINE) REQUIRE
ACCESS TO A LICENSE SERVER TO FUNCTION (A BIG PROBLEM WHEN DOING FIELDWORK).
I USE IT TO ANSWER E-MAILS AND CORRESPONDS WITH STUDENTS.
I USE IT TO COMMUNICATE WITH TUTORS, STUDENTS, COLLEAGUES
I USE THE INTERNET CONSTANTLY ALL DAY AND ON WEEKENDS IN ALL ASPECTS OF MY WORK. ESPECIALLY EMAILS ALSO
SUBMISSION OF ASSIGNMENTS ONLINE/CONTACT WITH WORK COLLEAGUES FOR EG: SHARING OF MATERIAL ACROSS TUTORS EACH
WEEK. **I THINK THE LANGUAGE USED IN THIS Q 12 IS AMBIGUOUS...YOU NEED TO SUBSTITUTE 'OPINION'
I USE THE INTERNET DAILY TO RESEARCH, CONTACT EXTERNAL STUDENTS AND POST LEARNING RESOURCES FOR BOTH INTERNAL
AND EXTERNAL STUDENTS.
I USE THE WEB EVERY DAY TO REACH FORMAL AND INFORMAL SOURCES OF INFORMATION
I WORK IN ONLINE EDUCATION - WITHOUT INTERNET I HAVE NO JOB!
I WORK WITH ACADEMICS WHO USE THE BLACKBOARD LMS AND THIS REQUIRES CONTINUED INTERNET AND INTRANET ACCESS TO
PROVIDE ASSISTANCE AND SUPPORT.
IF YOU INCLUDE E-MAIL IN THIS, I AM CONSTANTLY WORKING WITH IT. ALL MY TEACHING RESOURCES ARE PLACED ON BLACKBOARD
FOR THE STUDENTS. TO FIND SCIENTIFIC INFORMATION I USE DATABASES.
INFORMATION AND COMMUNICATION ARE OF PRIMARY IMPORTANCE IN TEACHING, LEARNING AND RESEARCH. THE INTERNET
PROVIDES ACCESS TO INFORMATION AND COMMUNICATION TOOLS. THERE ARE OTHER WAYS TO ACCESS INOFMRATION AND
COMMUNICATION TOOLS THAT ARE EQUALLY IMPORTANT, BUT THIS SURVEY IS NOT ABOUT THEM I GUESS.
INTERNET INCREASINGLY USED FOR INFORMATION GATHERING AND COMMUNICATIONS WITH COLLEAGUES AND STUDENTS, THE
INSTITUTION, COURSE MATERIAL RESEARCH.
INTERNET IS INTEGRALLY IMPORTANT IN ALL THE DESIGN, DEVELOPMENT AND RESEARCH WORK I DO DAILY.
INTERNET IS THE WAY LEARN ABOUT STATE OF THE ART IN MY RESEARCH FIELD
IT IS NOT ESSENTIAL BUT VERY USEFUL OCCASIONALLY
IT IS NOT THE ONLY SOURCE OF INFORMATION, BUT IS IMPORTANT
IT IS POSSIBLE TO DO MOST, PERHAPS ALL, OF MY WORK OFF-LINE BUT IT WOULD BE A TREMENDOUS HASSLE AND WASTE OF TIME
AND ENERGY. THE INTERNET DOES NOT MERELY ASSIST MY WORK; RATHER, IT IS THE PLATFORM FOR MY WORK.
IT IS THE BEST WAY TO INTERACT WITH STUDENTS. IT IS ONE OF THE BEST SOURCES OF INFORMATION FOR RESEARCH
IT IS THE MAIN WAY TO DISSEMINATE INFORMATION TO BOTH INTERNAL AND EXTERNAL STUDENTS
IT IS THE MAJOR COMMUNICATIONS MEDIUM
IT REPRESENTS A MAJOR SOURCE OF RESSOURCES AND IS HIGHLY NECESSARY TO EXCHANGE WITH COLLEAGUES AND STUDENTS
IT WOULD BE POSSIBLE TO ACHIEVE MANY OF THINGS I DO, USING TRADITIONAL MODES OF OPERATION, BUT THAT WOULD SLOW
CONSIDERABLY MY ABILITY TO DO MY JOB. THUS, WHILE I COULD DO OTHERWISE, I CONSIDER USE OF THE INTERNET TO BE CRUCIAL
TO MY WORK.
IT'S ESPECIALLY IMPORTANT FOR RESEARCH AND FOR COMMUNICATING WITH STUDENTS, COLLEAGUES AND ADMINISTRATION.
IT'S WHAT I DO
KEEPING STUDENTS INFORMED THROUGH THE INTRANET PORTAL IS MY ONLY WAY OF COMMUNICATING
KEY MEANS OF UNDERSTANDING CURRENT DEBATES
LARGE POTENTIAL RESOURCE

MANY INTRAORGANISAITONAL REQUIREMENTS ( FOR REPORTING, ACCESSING POLICY ETC) CAN ONLY BE MET BY THE NET
MORE UPDATE, ALLOWS IDENTIFICATION OF USEFUL CONTACTS AND RESOURCES.
MOST INFO NOW AVAILABLE ON THE WEB 24/7. TYPICALLY NOW IT'S THE ONLY PLACE TO FIND/ACCESS DATA. CAN ACCESS DATA
ANYTIME, FROM WHEREVER I AM. FAST COMMUNICATION METHOD.
MOST OF MY PROFESSIONAL COMMUNICATION IS BY EMAIL. I MANAGE COURSE MATERIALS VIA A UNIVERSITY ONLINE TEACHING
SYSTEM. I ACCESS SOFTWARE MOSTLY FROM ONLINE REPOSITORIES.
MOST OF MY STUDENTS LEARN ONLINE
MOST OF OUR TEACHING MATERIALS ARE UPLOADED TO WEBSITES WHICH STUDENTS ACCESS THROUGH THE INTERNET.
MOST OF WHAT I DO IS INTERNET SUPPORTED
MOST THINGS I DO AT WORK INVOLVE USING THE INTERNET
MOST USE IS FOR JOURNAL ACCESS AND THE INTERNET IS HELPFUL FOR THIS BUT DOESN’T REALLY ADD MUCH TO MY RESEARCH
ACCEPT MAKING IT A BIT EASIER TO ACCESS ARTICLES
MY AREA OF RESEARCH IS EMERGING TECHNOLOGY AND ELEARNING, AND RELIES PRIMARILY ON THE WEB AS A DELIVERY
MECHANISM.
MY DELIVERY AND ASSESSMENT HAS EVOLVED SINCE 2001 TO BE ALMOST EXCLUSIVELY ONLINE (WEB-BASED).
MY POSITION REQUIRES THE UPLOADING AND COPYRIGHT CHECKS OF ALL ELECTRONIC COURSE READINGS USED IN 90% OF UNITS
ACROSS THE ENTIRE UNIVERSITY. I ACCESS THE INTERNET ALL DAY, EVERYDAY IN THIS CAPACITY.
MY SUBJECT AT UNI IS DELIVERED VIA ELLUMINATE LIVE MY CONTACT WITH STUDENTS IS MOSTLY VIA UNI WEBMAIL RESOURCES
TO ASSIST MY LEARNING AND SUBJECT DELIVERY FOR TUTORIALS IS FOUNDON THE INTERNET
NEARLY ALL OF MY WORK IS DONE VIA ONLINE INTERFACES. I ALSO RESEARCH THINGS CONSTANTLY ON THE WEB.
NECESSARY FOR COMMUNICATION, SEARCHING FOR INFORMATION
NEW INFORMATION, QUICK COMMUNICATION SPREAD, RESEARCH
NO ALTERNATE SYSTEMS
ONLINE COMMUNICATION IS ESENTIAL AS I WORK ACROSS CAMPUSES. THE TEACHERS I SUPPORT AS AN ACADEMIC DEVELOPER
NEED COMPUTER LITERACY SKILLS TO TEACH ACROSS THESE CAMPUSES. ACCESS TO CURRENT INFORMATION IS ESSENTIAL AND
AVAILBLE USING INTERNET SERVICES.
ONLINE DATABASE SEARCH IS ESSENTIAL IN RESEARCH
ONLINE WORK
OUR RESOURCES (CATALOGUE, E-JOURNALS ETC) ARE TOTALLY INTERNET DELIVERED
PROVIDES ACCESS TO RESOURCES FOR RESEARCH AND TEACHING. ALLOWS ME TO WORK FROM HOME. IMPOSSIBLE TO IMAGINE
OPERATING WITHOUT IT NOW.
RAPID ACCESS TO SIGNIFICANT AMOUNTS OF INFORMATION - EFFECTIVE COMMUNICATION TOOL
READY ACCESS TO RESOURCES AND SOURCES OF INFORMATION REQUIRED FOR TEACHING AND RESEARCH
RELIANT ON ACCESSING NEW RESEARCH FINDINGS AND INCORPORATING INTO LEARNING MATERIALS
REQUIRED FOR COMMUNICATION AND DISTANCE EDUCATION AND RESEARCH
RESEARCH
RESEARCH ARTICLES AND CONDUCTING RESEARCH
RESEARCHING LITERATURE AND TEACHING RESOURCES OFFLINE IS A NOT TIME EFFICIENT
RESOURCES ARE EASY TO OBTAIN.
RESOURCES ARE UNLIMITED. STUDENTS ARE AWARE OF THE IMPORTANCE OF THE INTERNET AS A LIFE LONG LEARNING TOOL THAT
IS AVAILABLE 24/7.
RICH RESOURCE IS AVALIABLE ONLINE.
SO MUCH INFORMATION, SO EASILY OBTAINED
SPEED AND EASE OF FINDING INFORMATION. RETAIN CURRENCY
SPEED OF ACCESS TO INFROMATION & BREADTH OF INFORMATION AVAILABLE
TEACHING AND LEARNING DOMINATED BY TECHNOLOGY

THE ANSWER IS GIVEN IN QUESTION 10
THE INTERNET HAS REPLACED THE LIBRARY AS THE BEST AND MOST CONVENIENT FORUM FOR RESEARCH.
THE INTERNET IS CRITICAL FOR SEARCHING AND OBTAINING INFORMATION ON RELEVANT RESEARCH IN ORDER TO ASSIST ME IN
CARRYING OUT MY OWN INDEPENDENT RESEARCH PROGRAM
THE INTERNET IS CRUCIAL TO MY PERSON DEVELOPMENT IN TEACHING THE SUBJECT, AS WELL AS FINDING APPROPRIATE
RESOURCES QUICKLY AND EFFICIENTLY.
THE INTERNET IS NOW INTEGRATED INTO ALL TEACHING.
THE INTERNET IS NOW THE MAIN MEANS OF COMMUNICATION IN ACADEME
THE INTERNET IS QUICK AND IMMEDIATE. ALLOWS COMMUNICATION WITH PEERS INTERNATIONALLY, IMMEDIATELY. ALLOWS ME TO
SEARCH FOR INFORMATION VERY WIDELY.
THE INTERNET IS USED EXTENSIVELY FOR COMMUNICATION WITH STUDENTS, PROVIDING ELECTRONIC RESOURCES FOR STUDENTS,
PERFORMING ACADEMIC ADMINISTRATION. IN THE RESEARCH AREA I USE THE INTERNET TO KEEP IN CONTACT WITH COLLEAGUES,
SHARE RESOURCES, COMMUNICATE WITH JOURNALS, READ LATEST SELECTION OF JOURNALS AND DOWNLOAD LATEST ARTICLES OF
INTEREST.
THE INTERNET PRESENTS RELEVANT INFORMATION IN A CONCISE MANNER.
THE MAJORITY OF MY STUDENTS ARE ENROLLED AS EXTERNAL STUDENTS AND THIS IS THE ONLY WAY OF MAKING THEIR LEARNING
EXPERIENCE REAL AND ALIVE FOR THEM.
THE REASONS ARE THAT I CAN'T GET A USEFUL GATHERING OF ACADEMICS IN THE LUNCH ROOM. MOST OF THEM ARE BURIED WELL
UP THE RABBIT HOLE. ALSO THE LIBRARY IS NOW RELEGATED TO USELESS SPACE SO THE INTERNET TAKES ITS ROLE.
TIME SPENT! VERY QUICK SOURCE OF INFORMATION
TO CONTACT COLLEAGUES AND STUDENTS, TO DIRECT STUDENTS TO RESOURCES, TO SEARCH DATABASES, TO PROVIDE ONLINE
RESOURCES
TOTALLY DEPENDENT ON INTERNET FOR COMMUNICATION ACROSS TIME ZONES
UNFETTERED ACCESS TO RANGE OF INFORMATION; CONVENIENCE
UNIVERSITY POLICY AT MY UNIVERSITY HEAVILY SHIFTED ALL COURSE ADMINISTRATION ONTO THE INTERNET. ALL UNIVERSITY
POLICY INFORAMTION IS NOW INTERNET BASED. STUDENTS OVERWHELMINGLY RELY ON THE INTERNET TO MAKE CONTACT.
ACADEMIC JOURNALS NOW INCREASINGLY USE THE INTERNET AS THE SOLE ENTRANCE POINT FOR SUBMITTING RESEARCH PAPERS.
UNIVERSITY SITE IS THE MAIN SOURCE OF INFORMATION FOR STUDENT ASSISTANCE EG. HANDBOOK, ENROLMENTS ETC
USE EVERYDAY
USE IT CONSTANTLY FOR DIVERSE REASON
USE IT EVERYDAY
WEBCT IS THE TOOL THROUGH WHICH ASSIGNMENTS ARE SUBMITTED AND GRADED, IT IS GOOD FOR MAINTAINING A LOG OF
STUDENT WORK ETC
WHAT CAN WE DO, IN 2008, WITHOUT IT???????
WHAT OPINION?
WITHOUT IT WE CANT FUNCTION!


NT
ABILITY TO ACCESS CURRENT INFORMATION EASIER THAN LIBRARY/BOOK RESEARCH.
ACCESS INFORMATION AND RESOURCES AS PART OF MY WORK
ACCESS TO CURRENT RESEARH AND PUBLICATIONS ABOUT MY FIELD OF EDUCATION AND ROLE, KEEPING IN CONTACT WITH
COLLEGUES, SHARING INFORMATION, MAKING ARRANGEMENTS FOR WORK - TIME MANAGEMENT HOWEVER THIS CAN GO BOTH
WAYS!
ACCESS TO DATA AND TOOLS TO MANAGE DATA IS ESSENTIAL, THIS INCLUDES TOOLS TO FACILITATE COMMUNICATION AND
INTERACTIVITY.
ACCESS TO INFORMATION
ALL RELEVANT INFORMATION AND RESOURCES ARE AVAILABLE ACCESS TO GLOBAL PROFASIONAL COMMUNITIES= EXIT FROM PROF.
ISOLATION IN SMALL TOWN, ACCESS TO SPECIALIST KNOWLEDGE
AS A PHD CANDIDATE I HAVE COME TO RELY HEAVILY ON INTERNET ACCESS FOR COMMUNICATION AND RESEARCH.
AS AN IT ADMINISTRATOR, ALMOST ALL OF THE NON HARDWARE RELATED TASKS I PERFORM USE THE INTERNET IN SOME WAY.




                                     education.au 2008                                              Page 46 of 160
AS ICT TEACHER AND ICT MANAGER IN OUR SCHOOL THE INTERNET IS VITAL TO ALL ASPECTS OF MY WORK WITH TEACHERS AND
STUDENTS
AWARENESS OF NATIONAL AND INTERNATIONAL HAPPENINGS
BECAUSE ALMOST EVERYTHING I USE AT SCHOOL AND MY OWN PROFESSIONAL LEARNING COMES FROM THE WWW
BECAUSE IT IS AN INDISPENSABLE EDUCTIONAL TOOL.
BEING A REMOTE SCHOOL CONTEXT BEING ONLINE IS CRITICAL, CRITICAL, CRITICAL TO SCHOOL OPERATION AND TEACHING
EFFECTIVENESS
COMMUNICATING WITH COLLEGUES, SENDING WORK COMPLILED ELECTRONICALLY, PROVIDING EASY ACCESS TO GOOD RESOURCES
COST OF REFERENCE BOOKS MEANS UP TO DATE INFORMATION EXPENSIVE AND QUICKLY DATED. SAYING THAT THOUGH SOME OF
THE ONLINE ENCYCLOPEDIAS NOT MUCH BETTER, POORLY SET OUT, LIMITED INFORMATION AND DIFFICULT TO NAVIGATE. THEN YOU
GET OTHER SITES SUCH AS RAINFOREST MATHS AND ONLINE PROTRACTORS THAT ARE GREAT AND ENGAGING FOR STUDENTS.
DEVELOPMENT OF SUPPORT RESOURCES FOR NTCF
EASE AND SPEED OF ACCESSIBILITY, CONTRASTED TO TRADITIONAL LIBRARIES WHICH MAY OR MAY NOT HAVE WHAT IS REQUIRED.
COMMUNICATION WITH COLLEAGUES AND PARENTS. PROVIDES AN INTERACTIVE MEDIUM FOR TEACHING AND LEARNING,
ESPECIALLY USEFUL WHEN USED WITH EITHER INTERACTIVE WHITEBOARD OR DIGITAL PROJECTOR.
EVERYTHING I DO IS ONLINE   - THE INTERNET GIVES ME A DIRECT LINK TO MY COLLEAGUES WHO WORK ACROSS THE NORTHERN
TERRITORY.
FASTER AND MORE ACCESSIBLE
FOR TEACHING RESOURCES - ESPECIALLY AS I WORK IN AN ESL ENVIRONMENT I AM CONSTANTLY LOOKING FOR RESOURCES THAT
WILL SUIT INDIGENOUS CLASSROOMS. I ALSO ACCESS IMPORTANT EMAILS FROM WORK WHEN I AM TEACHING AT THE SCHOOLS
(CAMPING OVER 2 NIGHTS IN THE COMMUNITIES).
FOR THE LAST TEN YEARS ALL MY RESEARCH ON THE USE OF ICT IN THE CLASSROOM HAS BEEN DONE USING INTERNET
GET INFORMATION FAST
I AM IN A REMOTE SCHOOL. THE INTERNET IS ESSENTIAL FOR MAINTAINING MEANINGFUL CONTACT WITH THE "OUTSIDE" WORLD.
I AM NOT AN ISLAND - RELATING TO OTHERS IS ESSENTIAL TO PROGRESS
I NEED TO HAVE ACCESS TO OUTSIDE INFORMATION AS RESOURCES ARE LIMITED WHERE I WORK - IE. BETWEEN REMOTE SCHOOLS
ON AN NT ISLAND CALLED GROOTE EYLANDT. THE BAND WITH IS APPALING AND SKILLS OF ICT ARE SCANTY AND THE KIDS ARE
MISSING OUT DUE TO THESE FACILITIES BEING VERY SCRATCHY IN QUANTITY AND QUALITY MOST IMPORTANTLY.
I SUPPORT TEACHERS ACROSS A HUGE DISTANCE AND EMAIL AND INTERNET SITES PROVIDE THE BEST WAY OF COMMUNICATING
WITH THEM ALL AS I CAN ONLY BE IN ONE PLACE AT ANY GIVEN TIME.
I TEACH COMPUTING. TRY TO KEEP UP-TO-DATE WITHOUT THE INTERNET AS A DIGITAL LEARNER IS IMPOSSIBLE!
I USE DE-PASS ABOUT 15 TO 20 TIMES A DAY, THE LIBRARY CATALOGUE IS WEB-BASED. I PARTICIPATE IN ONLINE LIST-SERVS WHICH
FACILITATE PROFESSIONAL COMMUNICATION AND SHARING ACROSS AUSTRALIA. THESE ASPECTS OF MY WORK ARE CRITICAL. IN MY
ROLE AS THE TEACHER LIBRARIAN, I USE THE INTERNET DAILY TO SEARCH FOR RESOURCES FOR TEACHERS AND ASSIST STUDENTS
IN RESEARCH.
IN A REMOTE LOCATION A LOT OF INFMATION IS ONLY ON THE NET
IN TODAYS TECHNOLOGICAL SOCIETY IT IS ESSENTIAL FOR EDUCATORS TO BE SHARING INFORMATION THAT IS RELEVENT AND UP TO
DATE. IT IS ALSO ESSENTIAL FOR TEACHING PRACTICES AND METHODS TO REMAIN CURRENT
INFORMATION AND UNIT PREPERATION
INFORMATION GATHERING FOR MULTIPLE OF REASONS
INTEGRAL TO COMMUNICATION
IT ALLOWS ACCESS TO MORE RESOURCES AND INFORMATION, ESPECIALLY IN PLACE WHERE OTHERWISE THAT MAY NOT BE READILY
AVAILABLE. IT MAINTAINS COMMUNICATION BETWEEN STAFF IN THE SCHOOL, AND WITH COLLEGUES FROM OTHER EDUCATIONAL
INSTITUTIONS.
IT GIVES ME THE MOST UP TO DATE INFORMATION
IT HAS A WEALTH OF FREELY AVAILABLE RESOURCES FOR USING AND SHARING, IT IS AN IMPORTANT MEANS OF COMMUNICATING
WITH PEERS AND IT OFFERS ME THE SAME TOOLS STUDENTS FIND ENGAGING
IT HAS DEVELOPED INTO A RESOURCE THAT I SIMPLY WOULD BE AT A LOSS WITHOUT.
IT IS A GREAT TOOL FOR MODELLING AND WORKING WITH STUDNETS WHEN WE WAHT TO FIND OUT ABOUT A TOPIC. THERE ARE ALOT
OF VALUABLE AND USEFUL RESOURCES FOR USING ON AND WITH THE INTERACTIVE WHITEBOARD. THERE ARE MANY IDEAS TO
ENHANCE YOUR TEACHING PROGRAM. THERE ARE A LOT MORE TOO.
IT IS NOW EASIER THAN THE LIBRARY AND THE KIDS CAN USE IT AT THE SAME TIME AS THE TEACHERS. EVERYONE HAS THE SAME
ACCESS AS.




                                       education.au 2008                                                Page 47 of 160
IT PROVIDES VALUABLE RESOURCES TO SUPPORT THE INTERACTIVE WHITEBOARD IN MY CLASSROOM. I ACCESS IT REGULARLY TO
SUPPORT MY TEACHING.
IT'S A GREAT RESOURCE BUT IT IS ONE OF MANY THAT CAN BE ACCESSED
LIMITED RESOURCE IN SCHOOL MAJORITY OF RESOURCE AVAILABLE ON NET
MANY IDEAS AND RESOURCES COME FROM THE INTERNET
MOST UP TO DATA INFORAMTION THAT IS EASY AND QUICK TO ACCESS
MY ROLE INCLUDES LOCATING AND ACCESSING EDUCATIONAL RESEARCH FROM AROUND THE WORLD. SEARCHING THE NET IS FAR
MORE EFFICIENT THAN ANY PRINT BASED OPTIONS. I AM ALSO A MEMBER OF SEVERAL ONLINE EDUCATIONAL COMMUNITIES.
NEARLY EVERYTHING COMES VIA THE NET. INTERACTION WITH PEERS INTERSTATE. MOST GOV INFO AND NOTIFICATION FOR WORK.
IMMEDIATE ACCESS TO GET JOBS DONE.
NEED DEET SITE TO ADD/DELETE USERS AND OTHER ADMINISTRATION ASSOCIATED WITH MY ICT ROLE. IN LIBRARY ASSISTANT
ROLE, TO ACCESS SCIS TO DOWNLOAD INFORMATION FOR NEW MATERIALS, AND TO MAINTAIN LIBRARY RECORDS
OFTEN I NEED TO FIND SOMETHING QUICKLY AND THE INTERNET GIVES ME INSTANT ACCESS.
ONLINE SYSTEMS ARE DEPENDENT ON INTERNET ACCESS
RESEARCHING INFORMATION ONLINE ASSISTS WITH PROVIDING ACCURATE INFORMATION FOR THESE STUDENTS IN THIS VERY
REMOTE SITUATION
SCIENCE IS AN "EVER CHANGING " SUBJECT FANTASTIC THINGS AVAILABLE ON LINE NEEDED TO KEEP INTEREST OF STUDENTS
THAT IS THE WAY TECHNOLOGY IS ADVANCING, AND BOOKS AND OTHER HARDCOPY RESOURCES ARE SO IMPORTANT, BUT THEY ARE
EXPENSIVE AND WITH TECHNOLOGY IT IS HARD TO KEEP UP WITH THE PACE. USING INTERNET IS COST-EFFECTIVE, MORE
PRODUCTIVE, AND EASY ACCESS- BREAKING THE BARRIERS OF TIME, PLACE, MONEY. IT IS ONE OF THE VITAL TOOLS FOR
EDUCATION, BUT LIKE ANY OTHER TOOL-'USE' IT EFFECTIVELY
THE BASIS OF MY WORK IS INTERNET BASED
THE INTERNET IS A GREAT SPRINGBOARD FOR LOOKING AT OTHER STATES EDUCATIONAL RESOURCES ETC. IF I WANT TO FIND
SOMETHING THAT WILL ADD A BIT OF FUN INTO MY LESSONS THE INTERNET IS A GREAT PLACE TO START. I ALSO USE THE INTERNET
FOR ADMINISTRATIVE THINGS LIKE BEHAVIOUR MANAGEMENT ETC.
THE INTERNET HAS NOW BECOME AN INTEGRAL PART OF A TEACHER'S LIFE. THE AMOUNT OF AMAZING RESOURCES OF THE
INTERNET IS UNBELIEVABLE. THERE ARE SO MANY GREAT RESOURCES, WEBTOOLS AND WEBSITES THAT COVER EVERY
CURRICULUM AREA.
THE INTERNET IS IMPORTANT AS IT IS ALWAYS AVAILABLE AND INFORMATION CAN BE THERE IN FRONT OF YOU IN SECONDS.
THE MEDIUM IS A QUICK AND EFFECTIVE WAY TO CONTACT COLLEAGUES, GAIN AND RECEIVE RELEVANT INFORMATION FROM
PROFESSIONAL BODIES AND FIND UP TO DATE INFORMATION ABOUT TEACHING/LEARNING AND SCHOOL LEADERSHIP. THE INTERNET
ALSO GIVES ACCESS TO WIDER GLOBAL OPINIONS ABOUT LOCAL ISSUES THAT ARE BEING EXPERIENCED.
THE STUDENTS I TEACH OFTEN ARE ILLITERATE OR SEMI-LITERATE SO MOST OF THE WORK PROVIDED HAS TO BE MADE BY ME.
TO STAY UPTO DATE WITH RESOURCES AND TECHNIQUES IN TEACHING AND TECHNOLOGY.
USE IT CONSTANTLY, MODEL IT'S USE CONSTANTLY
WE LIVE IN THE TECHNOLOGY AGE AND OUR KIDS ARE SO MUCH MORE MOTIVATED WHEN WE USE IT. IT IS THE MOST IMPORTANT
TOOL WE HAVE AS EDUCATORS. WHEN IT WORKS IT IS BRILLIANT BUT WHEN IT FAILS ITS A DISASTER.
WE'RE EXTREMELY REMOTE. OFTEN NO ABC NEWS OR RADIO. IN ORDER TO ACCESS ANY RELIABLE TIMELY INFORMATION ONE MUST
USE THE INTERNET. WE DON'T HAVE A REGULAR MAIL SERVICE, NO NEWSPAPERS....
WORK IN REMOTE SCHOOLS - INTERNET IS VERY VALUABLE COMMUNICATION TOOL
WORKING IN A REMOTE LOCATION MAKES INTERNET AND REASONABLE BANDWIDTH CRUCIAL IF WE ARE TO HAVE A CURRENCY
ABOUT WHAT WE TEACH.   ACCESS TO COMPUTERS, THE INTERNET AND GAMES IS PROBABLY THE GREATEST ATTRACTION TO
SCHOOL FOR OUR SECONDARY STUDENTS.

ACCESS TO INFORMATION FOR TEACHING PURPOSES IN PARTICULAR ALLOWS A MORE INTERACTIVE APPROACH, AND PROMOTES
DEVELOPMENT OF PEDAGOGY THAT ENCOURAGES HIGHER EXPECTATIONS OF STUDENTS DUE TO INCREASED INFORMATION
LITERACY.
ACCESS TO INFORMATION HAS BECOME AN EMBEDDED PART OF THE WAY THAT WE OPERATE
ACCESSIBILITY, KNOWLEDGE CO-CREATION/DISSEMINATION HALLMARKS OF THE INFORMATION/DIGITAL AGE
ACCESSING INSTITUTIONAL SITE AND FACULTY SITE ON A DAILY BASIS ESSENTIAL IN MY POSITION
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ACCESSED VIA THE NET IS IMPERATIVE TO CURRENT INFORMATION, SUPPORTING STUDENTS LEARNING.
COMMUNICATION VIA EMAILS IS IMPORTANT TO KNOW WHATS GOING ON IN THE INSTITUTE AND IN PARTNERING INSTITUTES.
STAYING CURRENT. COMMUNICATION WITH STUDENTS THAT NEED ASSISTANCE WITH THEIR ASSESSMENT THAT MAY NOT BE ABLE
TO PHYSICALLY COME INTO THE INSTITUTE.
ALL OF MY TEACHING IS VIA THE WEB
ALL OF MY WORK IS EG. THE SYSTEMS I SUPPORT, ARE INTERNET BASED
ALL STUDENT INFORMATION AND STAFF DOCUMENTS ARE STORED ON INSTITUTIONAL INTRANET.
ALL WORK SHOULD NOW BE CONDUCTED ONLINE
ALMOST ALL OF MY DAILY ACTIVITIES ARE PERFORMED ON THE INTERNET OR SOME ITERATION OF IT, E.G. EMAIL, ONLINE
DATABASES ETC.
AS A TUTOR IN LEARNING SUPPORT, I QUITE OFTEN NEED TO ASSIST STUDENTS WITH RESEARCHING AND RESEARCH SKILLS, WHICH
REQUIRES THE INTERNET.
AS I AM WORKING IN IT
AS I SERVE A LARGE NUMBER OF DISTANCE EDUCATION STUDENTS THE MAJORITY OF COMMUNICATION IS THROUGH ICTS (EMAIL,
ONLINE COURSES, WEBPAGES, ONLINE TUTORIALS ETC).
AS MOST OF MY STUDENTS STUDY ON-LINE I NEED TO HAVE GOOD INTERNET ACCESS TO ASSIST THESE STUDENTS. ALSO I NEED TO
KEEP IN TOUCH WITH MY E-LEARNING COLLEAGUES SO THAT I CAN KEEP CURRENT WITH THE LATEST INFORMATION AND TEACHING
PRACTICES
BECAUSE THE RESOURCES ARE MOSTLY ONLINE MATERIALS
CAN'T DO MY JOB WITHOUT IT AS JUST ABOUT EVERYTHING IS WEB-BASED.
CAN'T DO MY WORK WITHOUT IT.
COLLEAGUES AND MANAGERS ARE ON OTHER CAMPUSES - EMAIL COMMUNICATION VITAL. INTRANET KEEPS ME IN CONTACT WITH
WHAT IS GOING ON THROUGHOUT INSTITUTE. BEING EASILY ABLE TO FIND INFORMATION TO ENHANCE/EXPAND INFORMATION GIVEN
TO STUDENTS ADDS FURTHER DIMENSION TO DELIVERY.
COMMUNICATION BETWEEN STAFF ACCESSING RESOURCES
COMMUNICATION WITH OPEN LEARNING STUDENTS
CONSTANTLY SEARCHING FOR INFORMATION FOR STUDENTS AND STAFF
CONTACT WITH STUDENTS, WEBSITES USED FOR WORKBOOK ACTIVITIES
COULD NOT FULFIL EITHER OF MY TWIN ROLES WITHOUT INTERNET ACCESS - IT IS JUST SO INTEGRAL TO MODERN COMMUNICATION.
AS FAR AS GOOGLE GOES, MY KNOWLEDGE BASE WOULD BE MUCH POORER WITHOUT IT.
COURSE MATERIAL IS DELIVERED ONLINE
COURSES ARE RUN ONLINE. MOST COMMUNICATION WITH STUDENTS AND STAFF IS DONE ONLINE.
CQU LEARNING & ADMINISTRATIVE SYSTEMS RELY HEAVILY ON THE INTERNET TO CONNECT PEOPLEO VER A LARGE GEOGRAPHICAL
FOOTPRINT.
CQU USES A WEB-BASED TEACHING AND LEARNING SYSTEM
CURRENCY OF MATERIAL NEEDED FOR STUDENTS
EASILLY ACCESSED
EMAIL IS BECOMING THE MAIN COMMUNICATION SYSTEM
ESPECIALLY THAT WE CURRENTLY DO NOT HAVE TELEPHONES AFTER RECENT FLOODING -ALL COMMUNICATION IS VIA INTERNET -
TO STUDENTS, SCHOOLS AND COLLEAGUES
ESSENTIAL FOR COMMUNICATING WITH STUDENTS AND FOR DISSEMINATING INFORMATION TO GEOGRAPHICALLY DISPERSED
STUDENTS
EXPANDS AVAILABILITY OF RESOURCES FOR TEACHING AND RESEARCH. CONSIDERABLY EXPANDED KNOWLEDGE BASES TO ACCESS
AS WELL AS GLOBAL LINKS
EXPECTATION FROM MANAGEMENT THAT WE ACCESS MOST OF WORK RELATED ISSUES ELECTRONICALLY. ALSO COMMUNICATION
BETWEEN CAMPUSES IS MOSTLY DONE ELECTRONICALLY.

FAST INFORMATION HIGHWAY. CUTS OUT A LOT OF TIME (WELL MOST OF THE TIME WHEN YOU'RE NOT SORTING THROUGH THE
ONLINE JUNK)
FAST, STUDENTS ARE 'SAVY' AND CAN COVER MORE MATERIAL IN DEPTH AND QUICKIER IN LIMITED TIME FRAMES.
GOOD INFORMATION
HELPING EXTERNAL STUDENTS WITH ASSESSMENT AND FINDING RESOURCES FOR THEM IS ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY AND HELPING
THEM TO DISTINGUISH BETWEEN THE RESOURCES THAT ARE ACADEMIC AND THOSE THAT ARE VALUELESS.
HIGHLY TECHNOLOGICAL DEPENDENT INDUSTRIES & REQUIREMENTS DYNAMIC, TIMELY AND UP TO DATE RESOURCES REAL TIME
RESPONSE AND SUPPORT SIMPLE, EFFECTIVE COMMUNICATION
I AM ABLE TO DO RESEARCH AND FIND INFORMATION QUICKLY AND HELP OTHER TEACHERS WITH THEIR WORK BY USING THE
INTERNET.
I AM TEACHING TEACHERS WHO ARE INVOLVED IN A PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT PROJECT DESIGNED TO BUILD CAPACITY IN
BLENDED LEARNING. THE FOCUS IS ON ADAPTING CLASSROOM-BASED FACILITATION SKILLS TO AN E-LEARNING ENVIRONMENT. I
TEACH THE E-TOOLS AND HOW TO USE THEM EFFECTIVELY IN DIFFERENT DISCIPLINES AS WELL AS ROLE MODEL THE FACILITATION,
MENTORING AND MONITORING SKILLS THAT MY TEACHERS WILL REQUIRE WHEN THEY INTEGRATE E-LEARNING INTO THEIR
COURSES. THE MY.TAFE LMS ENVIRONMENT IS ESSENTIAL TO THIS
I AM WORKING WITH A TECHNOLOGICAL SAVVY GENERATION WHO NEED TO BE ABLE INCORPORATE THE IT RESOURCES IN THEIR
LEARNING PROCESSES.
I BOTH TEACH AND STUDY ON-LINE IN FLEX MODE.
I CAN INSTANTLY ACCESS HUNDREDS OF OTHER PROFESSIONALS WHO WORK IN THE SAME APPLICATIONS AS MYSELF, ALLOWING ME
TO GAIN ACCESS TO A LEVEL OF SUPPORT I WOULD NOT HAVE WITHOUT THE INTERNET.
I CONDUCT ON LINE LECTURES WUTH PARTICIPANTS FROM AROUND THE GLOBE. THIS WOULD BE IMPRACTICABLE WITHOUT THE
INTERNET.
I FIND IT MUCH EASIER TO USE GOOGLE OR YAHOO TO SEARCH FOR CONTENT I NEED FOR CLASSES RATHER THAN USING THE
LIBRARY
I HAVE ALL MY RESOURCES AT TAFE, THE INTERNET IS SIMPLY AN EXTRA RESOURCE THAT I CAN TAKE OR LEAVE.
I LIVE ONLINE. I USE THE INTERNET TO COMMUNICATE WITH FAMILY, FRIENDS, COLLEAGUES AND STUDENTS. I COULD NOT SEE
MYSELF COMMUNICATIONG WITH STUDENTS [FOR EXAMPLE] ONLY IN A FACE-TO-FACE CLASSROOM SETTING. EDUCATION IS FAR
TOO COMPLEX TO ONLY REPLY ON THE "STAND AND DELIVER, SIT AND RECEIVE" METHODS AS THAT METHOD REALLY ONLY
SUPPORTS THOSE WHO ARE GOOD PRESENTERS, AND NOT ALL EDUCATORS ARE GOOD PRESENTERS. FAMILY AND FRIENDS ARE
NOT NECESSARILY LOCATED IN THE SAME AREA AS YOU.
I NEED THEM TO DO MY JOB
I NEED TO BE ABLE TO RESEARCH SOME OF THE SUBJECTS INFORMATION I TEACH & TO DIRECT STUDENTS TO CERTAIN WEB SITES
I NEED TO RESEARCH CURRENT AND UP TO DATE INFORMATION EG. POLICIES, STANDARDS AND ALSO MEANINGS TO CERTAIN
TECHNICAL JARGONS.
I NEED TO RESEARCH INFORMATION TO TEACH WITH
I ONLY TEACH ON-LINE
I RELY HEAVILY ON TEH NET FOR ACCESS TO BOTH RESEARCH MATERIAL AND FOR EXAMPLES TO INCLUDE IN TEACHING .. THE
MAJORITY OF MY STUDENTS ARE EXTERNAL SO THE NET IS ESSENTIAL FOR THEIR LEARNING TOO
I RELY ON THE INTERNET FOR EASY SHARING OF RESOURCES WITH STUDENTS WHO ARE OFTEN SOME DISTANCE AWAY FROM ME
I RESEARCH ON INTERNET TO ACCESS INFORMATION
I RESEARCH TOPICAL IDEAS FOR MY LESSONS AND THEREFORE NEED ACCESS TO THE COMPUTER/INTERNET FOR THESE.
I RUN ONLINE COURSES. I USE THE INTERNET TO ACCESS JOURNAL ARTICLES. EDITORS SEND ME MATERIAL TO REFEREE VIA THE
INTERNET. I EMAIL COLLEAGUES. I USE GOOGLE TO DETECT CASES OF PLAGIARISM BY RESEARCHERS AND POSTGRADUATES.
I TEACH A COURSE WHERE ALL MATERIALS ARE INTERNET-BASED
I TEACH EXTERNAL STUDENTS.
I TEACH EXTERNAL SUBJECTS THAT ARE DELIVERED (COURSE MATERIALS AND WEBCASTS) AND FACILITATED (DISCUSSION BOARDS,
SOCIAL NETWORKING SITES) 100% ONLINE. ALSO USE OF DATABASES FOR RESEARCH IS INVALUABLE - COULDN'T IMAGINE
SEARCHING IN A LIBRARY ANYMORE...
I TEACH SOLELY IN THE FLEXIBLE MODE AND THE INTERNET IS THE ONLY COMMUNICATION LINK WITH MY STUDENTS.
I USE IT ALL THE TIME, EVERY DAY. BEING "CONNECTED" IS INTRINSIC TO THE WAY I WORK, THINK ABOUT WORK, PLAN AND FORM
INTENTIONS TO CARRY OUT MY WORK RELATED THINKING PROCESSES. IT'S THE WAY I COMMUNICATE AND TRACK MY
COMMUNICATIONS, AND FOLLLOW-UP ON THEM, AND MAKE SURE TASKS ARE COMPLETED AND FILED AND ORGANISED.
I USE IT QUITE A LOT & IT'S A WAY OF COMMUNICATION.




                                     education.au 2008                                               Page 50 of 160
I USE MAINLY USE IT FOR EMAIL AND GOOGLE INFORMATION, BUT IT IS IMPORTANT FOR WHAT I USE. I COULD PROBABLY USE IT
MORE IF I NEEDED TO.
I USE THE INTERNET CONTINUALLY FOR COMMUNICATIONS WITH MY COLLEAGUES WHO ARE SPREAD OVER A LARGE AREA, FOR
INFORMATION AND RESEARCH AND TO COMMUNICATE WITH MY DISTANCE ED STUDENTS.
I USE THE INTERNET CONTINUOUSLY FOR THE WORK
I USE THE INTERNET EVERYDAY TO COMPLETE MY WORK.
I USE THE INTERNET TO HELP STUDENTS DAILY RESEARCH THEIR TOPICS FOR ASSESSMENT. I ALSO USE THE INTERNET FOR
CURRENT NEWS TOPICS FOR DISCUSSION IN CLASS AND WORKSHEETS.
I USE THE NET AS MY RESOURCE BASE, MY STAFF MAIL IS ACCESSED VIA NET-MAIL, I HAVE AN ONLINE DATA BASE AS I MOVE TO
DIFFERENT LOCATIONS DURING THE DAY AND THAT IS THE EASIEST METHOD OF ACCESSING MY RESOURCES.
I WORK DIRECTLY WITH COMPUTERS, AND I OFTEN SOURCE SYSTEMS AND COMPONENTS FROM THE INTERNET. NOT TO MENTION I
HAVE TO ANSWER TECHNICAL QUESTIONS FROM OUR WEBSITE, WHICH I ALSO HAVE TO CHECK FROM TIME TO TIME TO MAKE SURE
ITS CURRENT.
I WORK IN AN INDEPENDENT LEARNING CENTRE WITH 17 COMPUTERS. TWENTY CLASSES OF STUDENTS USE THESE COMPUTERS ON
A WEEKLY BASIS. USED FOR WRITING, ENGLISH LANGUAGE SOFTWARE, TEACHING STUDENTS TO USE EMAIL AND SEARCHING FOR
INFORMATION ON THE INTERNET. COMPUTERS ARE USED FOR TEACHING STUDENTS TO SAVE AND RETRIEVE DOCUMENTS; HOW TO
LOG IN AND LOG OUT ETC. STUDENTS LEARN ENGLISH AND COMPUTER SKILLS AT THE SAME TIME.
IF I KNEW MORE ABOUT HOW TO UTYILKISE IT AS A RESOURCE THEN I WOULD USE IT MORE AS I BELEIVE THAT I NEED TO EMBRACE
THE TECHNOLOGY THAT MY STUDENTS USE WITH EASE, OR PERHAPS FORFIET CREDIBILITY.
IMPORTANT IN TERMS OF ACCESSING ORGANISATIONAL INFO WHICH NOW ONLY COMES ONLINE (EG. COMMUNICATION WITH
MANAGERS, ACCESS TO DOCUMENTATION [FORMS, ETC]) IN THE ACTUAL CLASSROOM, ACCESS TO THE INTERNET HAS A VERY
NEGATIVE INFLUENCE ON THE STUDENTS PERFORMANCE. STUDENTS USE IT TO ACCESS MSN AND SURF THE NET 100% OF THE
CLASS TIME. TEACHERS CANNOT RESTRICT ITS USE AND STUDENTS CONSIDER IT A RIGHT. IT IS VERY DIFFICULT TO DELIVER
THEORY TO A CLASS WHEN NO ONE IS LISTENING.
IN A WORD EFFICIENCY!
IN KEEPING UP WITH TODAY'S TECHNOLOGY AND THE KNOWLEDGE OF MY STUDENTS
IN ORDER TO KEEP UP TO DATE IN CURRENT CONTENT IT IS IMPORTANT TO SURF THE INTERNET E.G. OTHER COUNTRIES
ESPECIALLY BRITAIN. POOR RESOURCES IN LIBRARY.
IN THE COMMUNITY SERVICES AREA WE ARE RELIANT ON UP-TO-DATE INFORMATION ABOUT LAWS, POLITICS AND COMMUNITY
CHANGES IN ORDER TO OFFER A CURRENT, RELEVANT TEACHING EXPERIENCE. BOOKS ARE OUT-OF-DATE BEFORE THEY ARE
PUBLISHED.
IN THE CONTEMPORARY HIGHER EDUCATION ENVIRONMENT IN AUSTRALIA, TEH INTERNET IS FUNDAMENTAL TO LEARNING AND
TEACHING, COURSE DELIVERY, RESEARCH AND SUPPORTING A SCHOLARLY COMMUNITY.
INCREASINGLY, THE TECHNOLOGY ALLOWS CLIENTS TO HAVE MORE CONTROL OVER THEIR INFORMATION SEARCHES AND THEIR USE
OF LIBRARY RESOURCES. GOOD WAY OF COMMUNICATING - ASYNCHRONOUS.
INFORMATION AVAILABLE INTERACTIVE ACTIVITIES TEACHING MIGRANTS REAL LIFE SKILLS READING
INFORMATION IS THE MOST INPORTANT TOOL FOR STRATEGIC MANAGEMENT -
INFORMATION IS UP TO DATE, CHEAP, CAN BE PRINTED OUT AND MANIPULATED FOR TEACHING EASE. A VARIETY OF RESOURCES
CAN BE ACCESSED FROM MANY AUTORS.
INSTANT ACCESS TO RESEARCH QUESTIONS
INTERACTIVITY, SPEED OF RESPONSE
IT ENABLES THE ACQUISITION OF UP TO DATE AND RELEVANT INFORMATION TO DRIVE LOCAL DECISION-MAKING TO ACHIEVE
EFFICIENCIES.
IT IS A CURRENT LINK TO THE WORLD PAST ME DESK.
IT IS A QUICKER WAY TO COLLECT BASIC INFORMATION FOR REPORTS
IT IS IMPORTANT THAT I REMAIN AT THE 'FOREFRONT' OF MY FIELD. THE INTERNET OFTEN PROVIDES THE MOST UP TO DATE
RESOURCES. FOR EXAMPLE I TEACH IN THE AREA OF LEGISLATION AND THE INTERNET IS THE BEST WAY TO FIND THIS
INFORMATION. MY STUDENTS ARE ALSO ENCOURAGED TO READ NEWS ARTICLES ETC. ON THE INTERNET FOR THE MOST PRESSING
CURRENT ISSUES.
IT IS IMPORTANT TOOL TODAY, AND BROADENS THE STUDENTS LEARNING ENVIRONMENT
IT IS THE HUB OF ALL COMMUNICATION AND LEARNING THESE DAYS.
IT IS THE MAJOR FORM OF COMMUNICATION WITH MANY OF MY STUDENTS. NOT ONLY FOR EMAIL TYPE COMMUNICATION, BUT ALSO
TO PROVIDE THEM ACCESS TO RESOURCES. MY MAIN FORM OF COMMUNICATION WITH COLLEAGUES IS VIA THE NET.
INTERNATIONAL COMMUNICATION IS 100% WEB BASED. MY INSTITUTION BASES ALL OF ITS ADMINISTRATION ON THE INTRANET -




                                     education.au 2008                                               Page 51 of 160
SO THE NEED TO HAVE WEB BASED RESULTS TO STUDENTS DRIVES (RATHER THAN SUPPORTS) MY TIMELINES. I USE THE INTERNET
MORE THAN THE LIBRARY FOR SOURCING RESOURCES FOR STUDENTS
IT PROVIDES A WORLD OF RESOURCES.
IT TKES TO MUCH TIME TO GO THOUGH BOOKS AND PAPER WORK
IT'S A COMMUNICATION AID, RATHER THAN AN ESSENTIAL TOOL FOR TEACHING AND LEARNING.
IT'S THE BEST WAY TO GET THE MOST CURRENT INFORMATION QUICKLY
KEEPING CURRENT KNOWING WHAT'S GOING ON RAPID RESPONSE EASE OF USE I AM AN INFORMATION COLLECTOR AND
DISSEMINATOR....HIGHLY IMPORTANT IN THE WORK I DO
KEEPING UP TO DATE WITH TECHNOLOGY IN VARIOUS FIELDS
KEEPS ME UP TO DATE WITH LATEST INFORMATION, ACCESS TO INFORMATION QUICKLY AND EASILY.
KNOWLEDGE
LACK OF RESOURCES AND FINANCIAL COMMITMENT FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF APPROPRIATE ARESOURCES
LARGE NUMBERS OF OFF-CAMPUS STUDENTS, ARE PRIMARILY COMMUNICATED WITH VIA THE INTERNET.
LIBRARY HAS MOVED AWAY FROM PAPER-BASED RESOURCES
LINKS ARE EMBEDDED INTO MOST INFORMATION SOURCES
MAJOR COMMUNICATION TOOLS, RESEARCH RESOURCES
MAKES IT EASIER TO FACILITATE DISTANCE EDUCATION AND PROVIDES STUDENTS WITH A VAST AMOUNT OF INFORMATION.
MORE AND MORE STUDENTS REQUIRE A FLEXIBLE WAY OF DOING THEIR STUDIES
MOST INFORMATION I NEED TO ACCESS IS NOW ONLINE
MOST MATERIAL I USE IS ACCESSED THIS WAY
MOST OF MY JOB IS ONLINE AND SO ARE MY STUDENTS
MOST OF MY RESEARCH COMES FROM THE INTERNET AND STUDENTS REGULARLY ACCESS THE INTERNET AS PART OF THEIR
OVERALL LEARNING.
MOST OF MY STUDENTS ARE ONLINE. MY RESEARCH REQUIRES USING THE WEB.
MOST OF THE FORMS USED IN USER CHOICE ARE STORED ON INTERNET, MAJORITY OF THESE WILL CHANGE EVERY YEAR, AND THEY
ARE ONLY ACCESWSIBLE ON SPECIFIC WEBSITES.
MOST OF THE INFORMATION NEEDED TO COMPILE MATERIAL IN TAX IS AVAIABLE VIA THE INTERNET
MOST OF THE STUDENT ARE OFF CAMPUS
MOST TEACHING IS NOW BY DISTANCE MODE AND INTERNET GIVES GOOD CURRENT ACCESS WITH STUDENTS AND ALSO ALLOWS
FOR QUITE AND CURRENT UPDATING OF INFORMATION PROVIDED TO STUDENTS.
MY COURSES ARE ONLY AVAILABLE ON LINE.
MY DUTIES INCLUDE ORDERING OF STATIONERY, TEXTBOOKS, AND OTHER RESOURCES FOR THE FACULTY; UPLOADING STUDENT
DATA TO THE SYSTEM; DOWNLOADING CLASS ROLLS/LISTS ETC.
MY INTERNET IS USE IS E-MAIL, ACCESSING ON-LINE DATABASES, COORDINATING AND CREATING LEARNING MANAGEMENT
SYSTEMS RESOURCES, STUDENT RESULTS AND REPORTING SYSTEMS, KEEPING CURRENT WITH THE NEWS AND UPDATES IN MY
AREAS OF EXPERTISE. ALL CRTICAL FOR MY JOB ROLE.
MY PRIMARY ROLE IS PURCHASING FOR AN ACADEMIC LIBRARY. THE INTERNET HAS GIVEN US ACCESS TO GLOBAL SOURCES FOR
MANY RESOURCES THAT WERE PREVIOUSLY UNAVAILABLE DOMESTICALLY OR HEAVILY RESTRICTED BY EXCLUSIVE SUPPLY
ARRANGEMENTS.
MY SUBJECT AREA IS TAUGHT WORLD-WIDE. THEREFORE, SOME EXCELLENT RESOURCES WHICH ARE AVALIABLE TO TEACHERS
HAVE BEEN DEVELOPED IN OTHER PARTS OF THE WORLD. THE ONLY WAY TO ACCESS THESE IN A TIMELY MANNER IS ONLINE.
MY TEACHING IS VIA DISTANCE LEARNING. AND THE INTERNET ALLOWS ME TO STAY UP TO DATE IN MY FIELD OF RESEARCH
NEED IT FOR RESEARCH, FOR COMMUNICATING, FOR TEACHING/RESEARCH WITH STUDENTS
NEED IT.
NOWADAYS THE EASIEST MEASN OF ACCESS TO RESOURCES
OFTEN USED FOR RESEARCH. LOOKING THROUGH SOFTWARE FORUMS TO FIND A SOLUTION TO A PROBLEM.
ON LINE LEARNING IS 70-80% OF STUDENTS SO ACCESS IS CRUCIAL
ONLINE DELIVERY OF LIBRARY AND LEARNING RESOURCES IS THE EVERYDAY NORM. ONLINE COMMUNICATION BETWEEN
COLLEGUES AND INSTITUTION STAFF IS VITAL ONLINE COMMUNICATION FOR PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT MEANS ONE CAN KEEP
UP WITH ALL THE LATEST DEVELOPMENTS WORLD-WIDE
QUICK AND RELIABLE. FIRST POINT OF CALL FOR ENQUIRY.

RESEARCH BASED WORK
RESEARCHING INFORMATION TO ADDRESS WORKPLACE ISSUES AND DEVELOP RESPONSES - GATEWAY TO POLICY AND OTHER
INSTITUIONAL DOCUMENTS
SOURCING INFORMATION
SPEED OF ACCESSING INFORMATION; COMMUNICATING WITH FELLOW COLLEGUES QUICKLY AND TO MEET DEADLINES
SPPED, UP TO DATE
STUDENT RELEVANCE
STUDENTS ARE USING THE NET MORE & MORE & TO KEEP RELEVANT IN MY COMMUNICATION WITH THEM I NEED TO USE &
UNDERSTAND MANY WEB BASED TOOLS. EASIER TO STAY IN CONTACT WITH STUDENTS AS A PART TIME TEACHER.
STUDENTS NEED TO ACCESS AND AS A TEACHER I NEES TO PREPARE MATERIALS
SUBJECT MATTER IS BASICALLY A WIDE RANGE OF EVENTS, ISSUES RELEVANT TO THE WIDER COMMUNITY SOCIAL ISSUES WITH THE
INTERNET PROVIDING REGULAR INFORMATION
TEACH   IN INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY AND BUSINESS AREAS MOST CURRENT INFORMATION IS ON INTERNET MOST CURRENT
INFORMATION/TECHNOLOGY ARE ON INTERNET INTERNET REQUIRED TO ENSURE CURRENCY INTERNET REQUIRE TO ENSURE LATEST
SILLS AND KNOWLEDGE
TEACHING AND LEARNING IS NOW CONDUCTED IN THE PHYSICAL AND VIRTUAL WORLDS
THE BREADTH OF INFORMATION I AM ABLE TO OBTAIN WOULD BE IMPOSSIBLE WITHOUT IT. SOME INFORMATION COULD POSSIBLY BE
SOURCED BY OTHER METHODS, BUT THE TIME DELAY WOULD IMPACT ON MY ABILITY TO COMPLETE TASKS.
THE INTERNET GIVES ME THE WORLD.
THE INTERNET HAS BECOME A SOURCE OF INFORMATION AND COMMUNICATION TOOL.
THE INTERNET HAS ENABLED ME IN FINDING CRITICAL ANSWERS USEFUL IN SYSTEMS ADMINISTRATION / SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT.
MANY OF THESE ARE FROM PEOPLES INDIVIDUAL EXPERIENCES AND CANNOT BE FOUND IN BOOKS
THE INTERNET IS A QUICK EASY WAY TO CHECK REFERENCE MATERIAL, FIND ANSWERS TO STUDENT QUESTIONS ETC.
THE INTERNET IS A USEFUL TOOL IN REGARDS TO HAVING RESOURCES AT YOUR FINGER TIPS. I USE THE INTERNET TO LOOK FOR
ADDITIONAL RESOURCES AND INFORMATION TO SUPPORT MY WORK
THE INTERNET IS AN INTEGRAL PART OF LIFE, LEARNING AND COMMUNICATION.     EDUCATION   IS WAY BEHIND IN ITS ABILITY TO
UNDERSTAND THIS.
THE INTERNET IS THE BASIS OF MY COMMUNICATION WITH STUDENTS     /   STAFF AND THE MAIN PLATFORM FOR MY TEACHING     /
LEARNING AND RESEARCH ACTIVITY
THE INTERNET MAKES IT POSSIBLE TO RECEIVE DIVERSE RANGES OF INFORMATION IN A TIMELY MANNER. IT MAKES RESEARCH
FASTER.
THE INTERNET OPENS THE WORLD - IT IS INSTANT ACCESS TO WORLD WIDE EXPERTISE.
THE LINKS GIVEN ARE FIRST GENERATION NOTES
THE MORE FACETS OF COVERAGE AND THE MORE EXPOSURE TO DIFFERENT LEARNING TOOLS MEANS THAT I CAN COVER MOST
ASPECTS OF HOW PEOPLE LEARN - MORE CHOICE MEANS HAPPIER AND MORE EDUCATED STUDENTS. MOST OF MY TEACHING TOOLS
ARE DESIGNED AROUND BLENDED DELIVERY.
THE MOST UP TO DATE INFORMATION PARTICULARLY IN THE IT AREA CAN BE OBTAINED FROM INTERNET. CONVENIENCE, LESS
EFFORT REQUIRED, FAST
THE NET IS THE MOST SIGNIFICANT REWORKING OF HUMAN COMMUNICATION AND COOPERATION TO EMERGE IN THE LAST DECADE.
IT ALLOWS RAPID TRANSMISSION OF IDEAS AND COLLABORATION WITH FELLOW PROFFESIONALS IN WAYS THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN
IMPOSSIBLE WITHOUT IT!
THE SYSTEMS WE ADMINISTER ARE ALL ONLINE.
THE VAST MAJORITY OF MY WORK REQUIRES INFORMATION TO BE RESEARCHED AND PROVIDED TO STUDENTS. FOR CAREERS
EDUCATION THE INTERNET HAS BEEN 'THE BEST THING SINCE SLICED BREAD' - IN THE PAST (BEFORE INTERNET) A MASSIVE
CAREERS LIBRARY WAS NEEDED TO STORE ALL THE DATA ON EMPLOYMENT OPTIONS, INDUSTRY GROUPS, GRADUATE EMPLOYMENT
OPTIONS, OCCUPATIONAL PROFILES, DUTIES AND TASKS FOR JOBS ETC. EVERYTHING WAS DONE VIA SNAIL MAIL - NOW ALL OF THIS
INFORMATION IS READILY AVAILABLE FOR OUR STUDENTS ONLINE
THIS IS WHERE I DO MOST OF MY WORK, FROM COMMUNICATING WITH MY ON-LINE STUDENTS, COLLEAGUES, KEEPING UP-TO-DATE
WITH THE LATEST LEARNING RESOURCES, WIKIS AND BLOGS




                                     education.au 2008                                                 Page 53 of 160
TIME FACTOR IS SO MUCH BETTER
TO KEEP IN TOUCH WITH WORKPLACE ACTIVITIES AND INFORMATION.
TO KEEP UP TO DATE WITH CURRENT TECHNOLOGY AND INFORMATION
TO KEEP UP TO DATE WITH TEACHING RESOURCES AND RESEARCH CHANGES IN INDUSTY
TO KEEP UP TO DATE WITH THE LASTEST INFORMATION TO TEACH THE STUDENTS
TOOLS
UP TO DATE ARTICLES, JOURNALS, OPINION PIECES, NEWS RELATED ARTICLES ETCETERA ARE NEEDED FOR MY WORK. I ALSO
REQUIRE RAPID ACCESS TO PUBLIC POLICY ESPECIALLY WHEN DEALING WITH STATE EDUCATION SYSTEMS.
UP TO DATE INFORMATION AVAILABLE AT THE CLICK OF A MOUSE.
UP TO DATE INFORMATION INCORPORATING INFO IN PPT'S
UP TO DATE INFORMATION, AT A CLICK OF A MOUSE/ FAST ACCESS TO DATA AND PAPERS//
USED AS A DATABASE FOR TAX AND ACCOUNTING INFORMATION AS WELL AS ACCESS TO THE MAJOR VET SITES
VERY FEW PAPER BASED RESOURCES NOW AVAILABLE TO USE - WORK IS INTERNET AND INTRANET DEPENDENT FROM
MANAGEMENT PERSPECTIVE
WE ARE EXPECTED TO CHECK EMAILS EVERY DAY. WE NEED ACCESS TO UP TO DATE INFORMATION FOR NEWS ITEMS ETC.
WE OFFER SUPPORT TO PEOPLE USING OUR WEBSITE.
WITH OUT IT I WOULDN'T BE ABLE TO FUNCTION IN MY POSITION
WITHOUT INERNET ACCESS, I WOULD FIND IT EXTREMELY DIFFICULT TO CARRY OUT MY WORK AS IT IS NOW AN EFFECTIVE
SUBSTITUTE FOR THE LIBRARY FOR ME.
WITHOUT INTERNET ACCESS I CANNOT COMMUNICATE WITH EXTERNAL STUDENTS EFFECTIVELY AS THEY WORK ALL DAY AND MANY
CAN NOT TAKE PHONE CALLS THROUGH WORK HOURS, KEEPING TEACHING RESOURCES UP TO DATE AND RELEVANT. BEING ABLE
TO COMMUNICATE WITH STAFF IN OUR FIELD BUT NOT LOCATED AT THIS INSTITUTE.
WITHOUT IT I WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO DO ANYTHING
WITHOUT THE INTERNET I COULD NOT MAINTAIN CONTACT WITH MY STUDENTS TO THE EXTENT THAT I DO AND COULD NOT PROVIDE
THE NECESSARY RESOURCES.
WORK IS DIRECTLY LINKED TO SHARED NETWORK DRIVE. IF WE DON'T HAVE CONNECTION WE CAN NOT DO ANY WORK UNLESS
WORK HAS BEEN SAVED TO DESKTOP.



SA
AS IN PREVIOUS QUESTION, I USE IT FOR MANY DIFFERENT PURPOSES. - I WORK IN VOCATIONAL PREPARATION AND STUDENTS NEED
TO LEARN IT SKILLS TO BE SUCCESSFUL
1. FACILITATES REMOTE AND ASYNCHRONOUS COMMUNICATION WITH COLLEAGUES AND STUDENTS 2. PROVIDES VERY EFFICIENT
WAY OF DOING PRELIMINARY LEARNING IN ANY TOPIC OF INTEREST
1.....ON-LINE PURCHASING SYSTEMS ARE NOW THE MAIN SOURCE OF ORDERING PROCEDURES. 2.....INFORMATION IS USUALLY
CORRECT + UP-TO-DATE. 3.....ADMINISTRATION DUTIES CAN BE PERFORMED BY USING THE CORRECT PROCEDURE SYSTEMS.
4.....RE-SEARCH PURPOSES.
98% OF MY WORK IS ONLINE
A GREAT DEAL OF OUR THEORY IS DONE WITH COMPUTERS ; LEARNING, TESTS AND REVISION.
A LOT OF MY TEACING IS DONE ON LINE AND THE STUDENTS ALSO HAVE TO DO A GREAT DEAL OF RESEARCH WHICH I RESEARCH
FIRST.
A LOT OF MY WORK IS MORE HANDS ON APPROACH, PRACTICAL SKILL BASED
ABILITY TO COMMUNICATE WITH EMPLOYER AND SUPPLIERS
ABLE TO ACCESS INFO. QUICKLY
ABLE TO CONTINUE WITHOUT INTERNET
ACCESS OF INSTANT INFORMATION
ACCESS TO A WIDE RANGE OF IMAGES FOR USE IN PRESENTATIONS TO SUPPORT THEORY
ACCESS TO BROAD CHOICE OF UP TO THE MINUTE INFORMATION AND SERVICES FROM THE TOTAL WORLD RESOURCE IS AN
ESSENTIAL INGREDIENT TO OUR TEAM'S ABILITY TO PROVIDE LEADERSHIP, TO USE AND TO CREATE INNOVATIVE SYSTEMS AND
LEARNING RESOURCES. WE ARE CONSTANTLY EXHORTED TO IMPROVE EFFICIENCY (DO MORE WITH LESS). HIGH QUALITY INTERNET




                                     education.au 2008                                               Page 54 of 160
ACCESS TO RESOURCES AND SYSTEMS IS AN INTEGRAL INGREDIENT TOWARDS MAINTAINING OUR EXISTING SERVICE, LET ALONE
CONTINUAL IMPROVEMENT.
ACCESS TO CURRENT INFORMATION BROAD RANGE OF INFO
ACCESS TO LATEST INFORMATION
ACCESS TO RELEVANT INFORMATION
ACCESS TO RESOURCES
ACCESS TO UP TO DATE RESOURCES AND PEERS, WORKING WITH PEER FROM OTHER CAMPUSES.
ACCESSING RELEVANT UP-TO DATE SUBJECT INFORMATION AND TEACHING RESOURCES. INTERACTING WITH COLLEAGUES IN THE
FIELD ABOUT RELEVANT TEACHING CONTENT.
ACCESSING UP TO DATE RELEVANT DATA THAT ASSISTS ME IN PREPARATION OF CLASSES. EMAIL AND SMS MESSENGER
CORRESPONDENCE WITH PEERS AND INDUSTRY. AS RESEARCH TOOL FOR STUDENTS IN BOTH CERTIFICATE AND DIPLOMA COURSES.
AT TIMES SOME SITES ARE USED AS A TEACHING RESOURCE TOO.
ADDRESSING THE DIFFERENT GENERATIONS LEARNING EXPECTATIONS
ADMIN/INTERNAL COMMUNICATION IS MAINLY VIA EMAIL, ESPECIALLY BETWEEN CAMPUSES. ALSO, MATERIALS SEARCH IS IN THEORY
UNLIMITED.
AID IN DEVELOPING TEACHING RESOURCES. RESEARCHING INFORMATION WHICH IS NOT AVAILABLE IN OUR LIBRARY
ALL EDUCATION NEEDS TO BE AT THE FOREFRONT OF TECHNOLOGY WHICH TAFE SOUTH IS NOT. IT WOULD BE GOOD IF, A) THE
COMPUTERS WORKED ALL THE TIME, B) DID NOT HAVE CONSTANT JUNK MAIL, C) HAD WIRELESS
ALL OF LIFES ANSWERS ARE TO BE FOUND ON THE INTERNET.
ALL OF MY WORK IS CONDUCTED USING THE INTERNET. I TEACH ELEARNING AND EFACILITATION.
ALL OUR INFORMATION IS ON OUR INTRANET AND ACCOMMODATION AND TRAVEL ON INTERNET.
ALL PRODUCT MSDS AND LATEST INSTALLATION MANUALS ARE ON-LINE. ALL SUPPLIERS ARE ON-LINE (WEBSITES) EXTENSIVE
ACCESS TO OTHER TARDE AND ASSOCIATIONS RESOURCES ARE AVAILABLE ON-LINE.
ALLOWS INSTANNT ACCESS TO CURRENT INFORMATION EFFICIENT USE OF TIME - CAN RESEARCH WHEN HAVE 5 MINS
ALLOWS QUICK ACCESS TO INFORMATION BOTH WITHIN AND OUTSIDE OF THE SCHOOL STRUCTURE
ALWAYS SEARCHING FOR NEW WEBSITES FOR STUDENTS TO ACCESS TO PRACTICE THEIR SKILLS
ANOTHER SOURCE OF INFORMATION
AS A LIBRARIAN IT IS ONE OF MANY RESOURCES OFFERED TO STUDENTS AND STAFF
AS I WORK WITH YOUNG WOMEN AND YOUNG PEOPLE WHO ARE VULNERABLE AND AT RISK I RELY ON THE INTERNET A GREAT DEAL
FOR INFORMATION AND REFERRAL. I AM CONSTANTLY FRUSTRATED BY THE BLOCKING OF WEBSITES WHEN TRYING TO ACCESS
MENTAL AND SEXUAL HEALTH INFORMATION, FOR EXAMPLE. THE FREQUENCY AT WHICH THERE ARE INTERRUPTIONS AND
SERVER/NETWORK PROBLEMS ARE A CONSTANT SOURCE OF ANGST ALSO.
AS I'M AM DIRECTLY INVOLVED WITH THE HOSPITALITY INDUSTRY AND GOVERNMENT REGULATORS, I MUST BE CURRENT.
AS THE SOLE PERSON IN MY ROLE IN THE ORGANISATION, I NEED TO PROVIDE INFORMATION AND SUPPORT TO OTHER STAFF.
INDEED ACCES TO RELEVANT UP TO DATE AND READILY ACCESSIBLE INOFRMATION ON A WIDE RANGE OF ISSUES RELEVANT TO MY
ROLE. E-MAIL ACCESS AS A COMMUNICATION TOOL IS ALSO ESSENTIAL
ASSISTS TO ACCESS RELEVANT INFORMATION AND LEGISLATION
BECAUSE ONE CAN USE IT TO RESEARCH, TO COMMUNICATE, TO DEVELOP LEARNING/TEACHING RESOURCES, TO DEPOSIT
TEACHING/LEARNING RESOURCES, TO KEEP UP TO DATE WITH KNOWLEDGE AND PRACTISE FOR AREAS OF PROFESSION AND
INTERESTS AND SO ON
BECAUSE I LIKE TO USE UP TO THE MINUTE AND CURRENT RESOURCES. SO IF SOMETHING IS HAPPENING 'OUT THERE' I WANT
STUDENTS TO BE CONNECTING WITH THE ISSUES 'IN HERE'. CONNECTING STUDENTS TO THE ISSUES BY USING THE TOOLS AND
'LIVING SPACES' THAT THEY USE, E.G. INTERNET, VIRTUAL WORLDS, SOCIAL SPACES.....PROVIDES A BETTER AND MORE REALISTIC
LEARNING EXPERIENCE (IN MY HUMBLE VIEW).
BECAUSE IF THE INTERNET COLLAPSES MY WORLD WILL KEEP ON TURNING
BECAUSE IT HAS BECOME PART OF THE WORK, INFORMATION AND EASY TO GET INFORMATION
BECAUSE IT IS AN EDUCATIONAL TOOL AND IF IT IS NOT WORKING THEN THE STUDENTS ARE DISADVANTAGED WHEN THEY COME TO
DO RESEARCH SKILLS, AND THEY FIND LOTS OF INFORMATION ON THE INTERNET.
BECAUSE IT IS SUCH A GREAT SERCH ENGINE WHEN YOU'RE NEEDING A POSTCODE, SUBURB, ADDRESS, FINDING A DENTIST( AS I
WORK IN THE DENTAL AREA). ADMIN USE IT A LOT.




                                      education.au 2008                                               Page 55 of 160
BREADTH AND QUALITY OF RESOURCES, RESEARCH. INTERACTION AND PROFESSIONAL LEARNING. VAST ARRAY OF WEB2.0 TOOLS
TO FACILITATE THIS, COLLABORATION AND SHARING. EFFICIENT COMMUNICATION AND PRODUCTIVITY - 24 HOUR ACCESS FROM
WORK, HOME - ALMOST ANYWHERE. ABSOLUTELY ESSENTIAL TO MY ROLE.
BY SEMESTER   2 THIS YEAR ALL OUR COMPETENCIES FOR THE CERTIFICATE 2 - DIPLOMA IN BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION WILL BE
ONLINE.
CAN'T DO MY JOB WITHOUT IT! EFFECTIVELY - COMMUNICATION ETC
CONSTANT RESEARCH TO RESOLVE COMPUTER SUPPORT ISSUES
CORE FUNCTION - WEB DEVELOPMENT
COST SAVINGS. OTHERWISE MATERIAL WOULD NEED TO BE PRINTED.
CRITICAL TO WORK FUNCTION
CURRENCY OF INFORMATION
CURRENCY OF INFORMATION FOR STUDENTS IN RELATIONSHIP TO THEIR STUDY.
CURRENCY OF INFORMATION VS TEXTBOOKS, DISSEMINATING INFO WITHOUT THE NEED FOR PRINTING VAST AMOUNTS (HOPEFULLY
SAVING A FEW TREES IN THE PROCESS) STUDENTS ABLE TO ACCESS RESOURCES FOR THEIR NEEDS WHEN THEY NEED IT.
CURRENT AND RELIABLE INFORMATION DELIVERED IN A TIMELY MANNER FROM RELIABLE WEB SITES IMPORTANT TO INCLUDE IN
RESEARCH FOR LECTURE MATERIAL. EMAIL, ASSESSMENTS DELIVERED BY EMAIL PROMOTES FLEXIBILITY IN DELIVERY WHICH IS
IMPORTANT TO OUR CLIENTS, THE STUDENTS, FAST TRACKS COMMUNICATION
CURRENT AND UPTO DATE RESOURCES ARE ESSENTIAL FOR TEACHING AND STUDENTLEARNING
CURRENT RESOURCES EMBRACING FLEXIBLE LEARNING REACHING LARGER AUDIENCE
DAILY PART OF MY JOB WITHOUT IT HOW COULD I COMMUNICATE WITH PARTNERS AND/OR IDUSTRY UPDATES ETC
DATA KEEPS BEING UPGRADED NEED TO BE ON TOP OF THE GAME
DELIVERING AN INTERNATIONAL BUSINESS PROGRAM DEMANDS UP TO DATE INFORMATION FROM ALL PARTS OF THE WORLD.
REGULAR COMMUNICATION REQUIRED TO DEAL WITH OVERSEAS LICENSED PARTNERS. STUDENTS ARE ON INTERNSHIPS IN UP TO
30 COUNTRIES.
DEPARTMENT IS SET UP WITH INTRANET AS THE BASE FOR ADMINISTRATION.
DIVERSITY OF MATERIAL AND CURRENCY OF INFORMATION MAKE IT IMPORTANT TO HAVE ACCESS TO UP TO-DATE RESOURCES.
DON'T RELY ON IT EXCLUSIVELY USE BOOKS AND TEACHER HANDOUTS AS WELL
EASE OF ACCESS TO VAST RANGE OF OPTIONS AND MATERIAL
EASE OF RESEARCHING AND ORDERING PRINT RESOURCES, EASE OF NETWORKING WITH OTHER LIBRARIANS, ABILITY TO KEEP UP
WITH TRENDS IN E-LEARNING. WITHOUT INTERNET ACCESS IT WOULD BE IMPOSSIBLE TO DO MY JOB IN TODAY'S ENVIRONMENT.
EASY ACCESS TO INFORMATION WHEN I HAVE THE TIME
EASY ACCESS TO UPT TO DATE INFORMATION. ABILITY TO FIND WHERE I CAN ACCESS INFORMATION
EMAIL IS A GREAT WAY TO KEEP IN TOUCH WITH STUDENTS AND COLLEAGUES. LOOKING UP FACTS - EG LAW, HR DOCUMENTS ETC IS
MORE CONVNIENT THAN LOOKING FOR MANUALS ETC.
ENABLES ME TO KEEP IN TOUCH WITH MY COLLEAGUES EASILY AND UP TO DATE WITH ALL ASPECTS OF MY WORK
ENABLES ONGOING CURRENT WORK TO BE INTEGRATED AMONGST WORKTEAMS AND EFFICENT AND EFFECTIVE WEB BASED
DATABASES ETC
ESSENTIAL RESOURCE PARTICULARLY FOR COMMUNICATING WITH STUDENTS, UPLOADING RESOURCES ETC FOR STUDENTS
STUDYING OFF CAMPUS AND CREATING SELF PACED LEARNING GUIDES FOR STUDENTS
ESSENTIAL TOOL AS E-LEARNING DEVELOPER, TEACHER AND PD TRAINER
ESTABLISHED DISIPLINE (ELECTRICAL) SO PLENTY OF BOOKS, ETC AVAILABLE
EVER CHANGING TECHNIQUES AND PRODUCTS REQUIRE ME TO ACCESS INFORMATION REGULARLY.
FAST ACCESS TO INFORMATION LIBRARY AT MY DESK
FINDING RELAVANT INFORMATION TO ENHANCE THE LEARNING PROCESS
FLEXIBILITY
FOR KNOWLEDGE AND RESOURCE TOPICS IT IS ESSENTIAL AND IS A SOURCE OF QUICK INFORMATION.
FOR PARENTS RETURN TO WORK IF WE DIDNT HAVE ACCESS TO THAT WEBSITE THEN WE WOULDNT BE ABLE TO ENROL THE
STUDENT USING THEIR RETURN TO WORK CREDITS
FOR THE MOST UP TO DATE AND ACCURATE INFORMATION
GATHERING OF INFORMATION AND RESOURCES KEEPING UP WITH THE LATEST TRENDS ETC KEEPING INFORMED




                                      education.au 2008                                             Page 56 of 160
GATHERING UP TO DATE INFORMATION AND RESEARCH FOR STUDENTS, QUICK AND EASY ACCESS TO INFORMATION, QUICK WAY TO
COMMUNICATE WITH COLLEAGUES, EASY TO COMMUNICATE WITH STUDENTS OFF CAMPUS AS I TEACHING EXTERNAL STUDENTS
GETTING UPTO DATE RESEARCH AND BEST PRACTISE FOR DIPLOMA LEVEL TEACHING. COMMUNICATION WITH COLLEGUES AND
STUDENTS
GIVES ACCESS TO ONLINE DATABASES, OUR INTRANET, THE LIBRARY WEBSITE, RESEARCH MATERIAL
GIVES ACCESS TO TOOLS AND RESOURCES THAT AREN'T ACCESSIBLE LOCALLY. ALSO ACCES TO FREE LEARNING MATERIALS AND
TOOLS, EG FREEWARE
GOOD TO GET UP-TO-DATE INFO GOOD TO SEE WHAT OTHER STATES DO OK TO COMPARE WITH OTHER COUNTRIES ESPECIALLY UK,
AND TO A LESSER EXTENT, USA COLOUR
HAVE INCORPORATED NEW TECHNOLOGIES INTO TEACHING STRATEGIES TO MEET NEEDS OF STUDENTS IN REMOTE AREAS - COULD
NOT CONTINUE WITHOUT IT.
HEAVY RELIANCE FOR WORKING WITH EXTERNAL STUDENTS AND ESSENTIAL FOR TRAINING TRAINERS (MY SPECIALITY)
HUGE ARRAY AND DIVERSITY OF INFORMATION FINDING ANSWERS COMMUNICATING
I AM A WEB DEVELOPER
I AM ABLE TO DO THE JOB PROPERLY WITH RESOURCES AVAILABLE FROM THE INTERNET.
I AM AN E-LEARNING MENTOR FOR VET STAFF
I AM TEACHING IN THE MULTIMEDIA AREA AND THE INTERNET IS A MAJOR PART OF WHAT I TEACH.
I BELIEVE THE INTERNET IS STILL AN UNDERUSED UTILITY. THE POSSIBILITIES ARE HUGE AND UNFORTUNATELY LARGELY STILL
UNRECOGNISED IN TAFE. THE FACILITATION OF LEARNING NEEDS TO BEGIN TO COME FROM THE STUDENTS "WHERE THEY ARE"
INSTEAD OF ATTEMPTING TO MAKE THEM "COME UP TO OUR LEVEL".
I CAN GATHER UP TO DATE INFORMATION AND RESOURCES FOR STUDENTS AND MYSELF AND ALSO KEEP UP TO DATE WITH WHAT IS
HAPPENING IN OTHER PARTS OF THE WORLD
I COMMUNICATE WITH MY STAFF MAINLY VIA THE INTERNET; I READ RESEARCH PAPERS ON THE INTERNET; I MAKE APPOINTMENTS
VIA THE INTERNET; I ACCESS RELEVANT DOCUMENTS AND POLICIES VIA THE INTERNET
I DEVELOP, WRITE AND DELIVER ONLINE CONTENT TO STUDENTS.
I FACILITATE A CERTIFICATE IV WEB DESIGN COURSE AND NEED TO ACCESS THE ONLINE SITE AND CHAT TO COMMUNICATE WITH
STUDENTS.
I FIND THE INTERNET A GOOD READY REFERENCE THAT IS UP TO DATE AND QUICK TO ACCESS WHILE AT WORK
I FIND WITH LEARNING MATERIALS IT IS A GOOD WAY TO LOCATE NATIONAL MATERIAL. IT HAS ALSO PROVEN TO BE A GOOD
REPOSITORY FOR STUDENT LEARNING MATERIAL
I GENERALLY ONLY LOOK SOMETHING UP ON THE INTERNET IF IT'S A NEW SUBJECT AREA / NEW TASK
I GO ON LINE EVERYDAY AND TEACH ON LINE STUDIES
I HAVE A JANISON ON LINE COURSE
I HAVE DESIGNED WHOLE TRAINING PACKAGES FROM INTERNET SOURCES AND SITES AND STUDENTS SELF PACE THROUGH THE
EXERCISES AND PRINT OFF THE PAGES AND OTHER MATERIAL WHICH I ASK THEM TO SOURCE AND USE
I HAVE TO BE WHERE MY STUDENTS ARE - ON THE NET
I HAVE TO KEEP UP TO DATE OTHERWISE MY STUDENTS WILL BE MORE EDUCATED THAN ME. THE INTERNET IS THE MOST EFFICIENT
WAY OF DOING THIS.
I LIKE TO USE A VARIETY OF RESOURCES
I MANAGE THE CERT IV IN WEBSITE DESIGN WHICH IS AN ONLINE COURSE AND ALSO MANAGE IT TRAINEES. I HAVE DEVELOPED A
WEBSITE WITH ALL RELEVANT INFORMATION FOR TAFE LECTURERS, TRAINEES AND TRAINEE SUPERVISORS RELATED TO THE
TRAINESHIPS.
I NEED RELEVANT UPDATED RESOURCES FOR THE TRAINING THAT I PROVIDE ESPECIALLY IN OH&S. I FIND THE INTERNET PROVIDES
ME WITH UPDATED REGULATIONS AND UPDATED LEARNING RESOURCES.
I NEED TO BE ABREAST WITH THE CURRENT INTERNET CONTENT
I NEED TO KEEP ABREAST OF THE LATEST DEVELOPMENTS IN IT SUPPORT
I PRODUCE ONLINE COURSES, I HAVE 20 ODD COURSE UNDER CONSTRUCTION.
I RELY ON CERTAIN EDUCATIONAL SITES FOR INFORMATION AND HEAVILY RELY ON CHECKING MY EMAILS FROM HOME
I REQUIRE IT TO ACCESS THE MOST CURRENT INFORMATION. ALSO AS PART OF OUR OURSE THE STUDENTS ARE REQUIRED TO
COMPLETE ONLINE ASSESSMENTS & TUTORIALS (I REQUIRE ACCESS TO THE SITE FOR ADMINISTRATIVE PURPOSES).
I SUPPORT A VARIETY OF STUDENTS FROM 4 WIDELY DIFFERING SUBJECT GROUPS, SO QUICK EASY ACCESS TO INFORMATION TO
SUPPORT STUDENTS RESEARCH IS ESSENTIAL




                                       education.au 2008                                               Page 57 of 160
I TEACH IT INCLUDING WEB DESIGN AND MULTIMEDIA
I USE IT QUITE A LOT TO GAIN INFORMATION, HARDLY NEED TO GO TO A LIBARY FOR REFERENCE MATERIAL, OR IN THE CASE OF
ADMIN PROCEDURES ETC NO NEED TO KEEP COPIES.
I USE THE INTERNET FOR RESEARCH FOR MY TEACHING AND REQUIRE STUDENTS TO USE IT TO RESEARCH THEIR STUDY
I USE THE STUDENT HUB TO KEEP IN TOUCH WITH ON AND OFF CAMPUS STUDENTS USE EMAIL TO COMMUNICATE WITH COLLEAGUES,
STUDENTS & OTHERS USE THE INTERNET TO RESEARCH TRAINING MATERIAL AND LOCATE RESOURCES INTERNET ALLOWS
TIMEFRAMED LEARNING TO OCCUR
I WORK AS A COMMUNICATIONS AND RESEARCH OFFICER THEREFORE I NEED TO FIND RELEVANT INFORMATION ON VARIOUS ISSUES
AFFECTING TAFE. THE INTERNET IS THE PRIMARY RESEARCH TOOL.
I WORK IN IT
IDEAS FOR TEACHING ACTIVITIES IMAGES FOR PRESENTATIONS REFERENCE MATERIAL FOR SUBJECT CONTENT DEFINITIONS
IF I CAN'T FIND A NEW PROBLEM SOLVED ON THE INTERNET (AFTER I HAVE FAILED TO SOLVE IT MYSELF) THAT IS A VERY DIFFICULT
SITUATION.
IF SOMEONE ASKS A QUESTION I SHOULD BE ABLE TO LOOK UP THE ANSWER EFFICIENTLY AND PROFESSIONALLY
I’M A LIBRARIAN. LIBRARIES ARE ABOUT PROVIDING INFORMATION. MUCH INFORMATION TODAY IS ONLINE WHETHER IT BE IN
GENERAL WEBSITES OR ONLINE DATABASES, IT IS OUR JOB TO USE AND TEACH OTHERS TO USE THESE UP TO DATE RESOURCES. I
ALSO USE THE INTERNET FOR ONLINE SHOPPING FOR LIBRARY RESOUCES. IT IS THE MOST CONVENIENT AND TIMELY WAY OF
PURCHASING LIBRARY MATERIAL.
I'M TEACHING COMPUTING AND ALWAYS NEED TO UPDATE AND DOWNLOAD PROGRAMS AND SOFTWARE FOR PC
IMMEDIACY OF ACCESS.
IMPORTANT SOURCE OF RESOURCES AND UP TO DATE INFORMATION
IN MY JOB I HAVE TO BE UP TO DATE WITH THE LATEST MATERIALS, RESOUCES AND THNKING IN THE FIELD. I ALSO NEED TO ACCESS
SITES OF OTHER DEPARTMENTS, ORGANISATIONS AND AGENCIES WITH WHOM I COLLABOTATE. I ALSO NEED TO DEVELOP MY OWN
SKILLS SO THAT I CAN EASSIST OTHER COLLEAGUES AND AGENCIES I SUPPORT.
IN MY LECTURING ROLE OUR UNITS OF WORK ARE NOT TEXT BOOK BASED HENCE I RESEARCH USING A SUITE OF MATERIAL FROM
TEXTS, MAGAZINES AND THE INTERNET IN PREPARATION FOR DELIVERY. THE MOST RELIABLE METHOD OF COMMUNICATION WITH
STUDENTS HIS NOW PROVING TO BE VIA EMAIL OR MOBILE PHONE. IN MY ADMINISTRATIVE ROLE COMMUNICATION WITH STAFF VIA
EMAIL AND MARKETING AND THE PROVISION OF INFORMATION VIA OUR WEBSITE ARE VITAL SUPPORT MECHANISMS. NEVERTHELESS
FACE TO FACE COMMUNICATION REMAINS THE MOST EFFECTIVE
IN TAFE WE USE IT AS A CORE COMPONENT OF WORK LEADINBG TOWARDS INCREASED E-LEARNING. COULD NOT LOCATE ALL
RESOURCES WITHOUT INTERNET OR EVEN OUR LMS
IN TERMS OF GAINING INFO VIA E-MAIL
INCREASING USE OF LMS SUCH AS MOODLE AND USE ON ONLINE RESOURCES FOR STUDENTSTO ACCESS UP TO DATE INFO' - AND
USE OF EMAIL TO COMMUNICATE WITH STUDENTS AND RECEIVE WORK FROM THEM
INDUSTRY FUNCTIONS SOLELY ON TECHOLOGY - HOW CAN YOU TEACH CURRENT PRACTICE WITHOUT TECHNOLOGY?
INDUSTRY-RELATED
INFORMATION AT YOUR FINGERTIPS ALTHOUGH FRUSTRATING ZEROING IN ON THE RELEVANT SITE. UNFORTUNATELY ONLY ON
DIALUP AT HOME. INTRANET VERY IMPORTANT AS CONTAINS ALL RELEVANT FORMS FOR OUR WORK, IT SUPPORT, LATEST JOB
RELATED INFORMATION
INFORMATION CAN BE SHARED
INFORMATION IS MORE UP TO DATE THAN AVAILABLE PRINTED TEXT, PARTICULARLY WITH CHANGES TO LEGISLATION (FSANZ
WEBSITE)
INSTANT ACCESS TO INFORMATION
INSUFFICIENT PERSONAL TIME TO VISIT LIBRARIES ETC. MARKING STUDENT ASSIGNMENTS
INTERNET IS INFORMATION SOURCE STUDENTS USE MOST READILY - NEED TO KNOW WHAT IS THERE, HOW TO GET IT TO ASSIST
STUDENTS IN ITS USE AND AS WITH PRINTED WORKS ASSESSING INFO FOR RELIABILITY ETC GOOD SOURCE OF CURRENT
INFORMATION ON SPORT AND RECREATION ACTIVITIES, RESULTS WHERE PEOPLE ARE PUTTING INFORMATION THAT IS PERTINENT
TO THIS AREA OF ACTIVITY AND OUR AREA OF WORK EFFICIENT IN SEEKING OUT RESOURCES EFFICIENT COMMUNICATION WITH
COLLEAGUES
INTERNET SITES ARE RESOURCES FOR TEACHING THAT STUDENTS CAN RELATE TO AND EXPRESS REAL WORLD LEARNING.
STUDENTS OFTEN FINDWEBSITE RESEACH A BETTER WAY OF LEARNING. IN THE TOURISM INDUSTRY IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO WORK
WITHOUT THE INTERNET. LECTURERS NEED MORE ACCESS TO MORE SITES -WHICH ARE OFTEN BLOCKED TO US.
INVALUABLE SOURCE OF RESEARCH MATERIALS FOR MY OWN UNDERSTANDING OF SUBJECT MATTER AND FOR STUDENTS.




                                      education.au 2008                                                 Page 58 of 160
IT ALLOWS FOR MUCH GREATER DIVERSITY AND FLEXIBILITY IN DELIVERING EDUCATION. IT ALSO ALLOWS FOR INSTANT ACCESS TO
INFORMATION.
IT GIVES ME DESKTOP ACCESS TO ALMOST ALL OF THE RESOURCES I NEED TO DO ALL ASPECTS MY JOB.
IT HAS GIVEN ME ACCESS TO A VAST RANGE OF UP-TO-DATE AUTHENTIC ENGLISH LANGUAGE MATERIALS FOR STUDENTS TO READ
AND LISTEN TO AS WELL AS VERY QUICK ACCESS TO BACKGROUND INFORMATION, WAYS TO CHECK FACTS ETC
IT IS A MEANS TO UPDATE KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING OF RECENT EVENTS AND THE IMPACT THAT THIS MIGHT HAVE ON
YOUNGER GENERATIONS. THEREFORE IT HAS AN IMPORTANT BEARING ON THE DELIVERY OF INFORMATION TO CLIENT GROUPS.
IT IS A SOURCE OF CURRENT INFORMATION
IT IS A VERY QUICK METHOD OF GETTING THE INFORMATION THAT I NEED SO WITH LIMITED TIME IT IS CRITICAL THAT WHATEVER I USE
IS FAST OTHERWISE IT JUST DOES NOT GET DONE
IT IS A WINDOW TO THE GLOBAL WORLD AND THERE IS SO MUCH INFORMATION FOR THE STUDENTS TO ACCESS. ALSO FOR THEM TO
DO THERI COURSES ALL THEY NEED IS INTERNET ACCESS NOT A SPECIFIC PROGRAM. AUST HASN'T YET STARTED TO USE THE
INTERNET AS MUCH AS OTHER COUNTRIES PARTLY DUE TO THE SLOW SPEED.
IT IS ACCESSIBLE, CONVENIENT AND UP TO DATE
IT IS ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO TEACH ABOUT CURRENT HARDWARE WITHOUT VISITING MANUFACTURERS AND VENDOR WEBSITES FOR
SPECIFICATIONS AND EXAMPLES. ALSO TOOLS SUCH AS WIKIPEDIA MAKE IT MUCH QUICKER TO FILL IN GAPS.
IT IS AN ENORMOUS SOUCE OF INFORMATION AND IMAGES. THIS IS HELPFUL WHEN ACCESSING UP-TO-DATE INFORMATION AND
MAKING PRESENTATIONS INTERESTING AND CURRENT
IT IS AN ESY RESEARCH TOOL AVAILABLE FROM MY DESK
IT IS AN INTEGRAL PART OF DAILY WORK.
IT IS IMPORTANT TO STAY CURRENT, ENGAGES THE STUDENTS
IT IS MY MAIN TOOL FOR COMMUNICATIONG WITH STUDENTS OUTSIDE OF THE CLASSROOM.
IT IS RELEVANT FOR RESEARCHING ABOUT THE LIBRARIES
IT IS SO EASY TO USE AND ACCESS INFORMATION
IT IS THE MEDIUM THAT THE STUDENTS KNOW, AND THEY DO NOT WANT TO USE OR LOOK AT OLD TECHNOLOGY. WE MUST USE THE
"COMPUTER" AGE FOR TEACHING
IT KEEPS ME UP TO DATE MAKES IT INTERESTING FOR STUDENTS SUPPORTS LIFE LONG LEARNING FOR STUDENTS AND LECTURERS
IT KEEPS US UP TO DATE WITH WHAT IS HAPPENING IN INDUSTRY
IT PROVIDES A RANGE OF RESOURCES THAT ARE RELEVANT AND UP-TO-DATE FOR STUDENTS, AND ALLOWS US TO ACCESS
SIMULTANEOUSLY A VARIETY OF RESOURCES ON THE ONE TOPIC FOR COMPARISON AND DISCUSSION EG COMPARING A RADIO NEWS
REPORT AND NEWSPAPER REPORTS FROM DIFFERENT STATES ON THE SAME NEWS ITEM. IT ALSO IS THE ACCESS ROUTE FOR MY
CURRICULUM DOCUMENT, AND OTHERS TO WHICH WE HAVE SCOPE, SO I DON'T NEED TO FIND A PAPER COPY IN THE FIRST
INSTANCE. I ALSO KEEP IN TOUCH WITH PD RESOURCES AND OPPORTUNITIES.
IT TAKES UP A SIGNIFICANT PART OF MY DAY. EG I HAVE LARGE NUMBER OF EXTERNAL STUDENTS AND THEREFORE FOR
COMMUNICATING WITH THEM. FOR RESEARCH IN DEVELOPING RESOURCES, CHECKING REGULAR CHANGES TO LEGISLATION.
KEEPING UP TO DATE WITH MY WORKPLACE/INSTITUTE NEWS. ALL POLICIES, PROCEDURES, HR FORMS ETC ARE ALL ON THE
INTRANET. ENROLLING IN PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT SESSIONS.
IT'S A TOOL I USE DAILY TO CARRY OUT BUSINESS.
IT'S A WEALTH OF REQUIRED INFORMATION!
IT'S A WIRED WORLD!
IT'S AN EXTRA TOOL
IT'S HOW I FIND MANY OF THE ANSWERS TO SERVER RELATED PROBLEMS QUICKLY. IT'S ALSO HOW I CONNECT WITH COLLEAGUES
AND OTHER IT PROFESSIONALS.
ITS IMMEDIACY AND SPEED AT WHICH I CAN TRACK DOWN, ASSESS AND POTENTIALLY USE RELEVANT INFORMATION ACROSS A WIDE
SPECTRUM OF MATERIALS EG FROM A SENSATIONAL TABLOID NEWSPAPER ARTICLE TO A HIGHLY TECHNICAL RESEARCH ABSTRACT
ALL ON THE 1 SCREEN AT THE SAME TIME.
IT'S PART OF MY ROLE
ITS THE FAST AND EASY WAY TO STAY UP TODATE
JOB LABOUR MARKET INFORMATION AND RESOURCING CAREER DEVELOPMENT TOOLS
KEEPING UP TO DATE / PROGRESS / INTEREST / PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT / SHARING / COMMUNICATION
KEEPING UP TP DATE
KEEPS ME UP TO DATE WITH WHATS NEW IN INDUSTRY




                                        education.au 2008                                                 Page 59 of 160
LACK OF MATERIAL AT CAMPUS AVAILABLE AND NEW MATERIAL CHANGING DAILY ONLINE
LEARNING MATERIAL FOR STUDENTS STUDIES
LIMITED TIME IN AND AROUND LECTURING DUTIES AND MAINTENANCE IN ENGINEERING WORK SHOPS LABS AND SITE WORK
LIVING IN A REGIONAL AREA OFTEN THE LIBRARY SYSTEMS NEED TO ORDER BOOKS IN WHICH CAN TAKE UP TO TWO WEEKS TO GETS
AND IN MOST INSTANCES I NEED THE INFORMATION STRAIGHT AWAY THEREFORE THE INTERNET CAN ASSIST ME ISTANTLY
LOOKING FOR NEW IDEAS, UPDATING INFORMATION AND KNOWLEDGE ( STATE, NATIONAL AND GLOBAL), CHECKING FACTS, CURRENT
AFFAIRS/ISSUES
MAJOR PART OF WORK WITH STUDENTS. MAJORITY OF THEIR WORK IS INCORPORATED INTO A WEBSITE OVER A       2 YEAR PERIOD.
USE GOOGLE CONSTANTLY TO FIND INFORMATION.
MAJORITY OF RESEARCH IS ABLE TO BE DONE AT MY DESK RATHER THAN BEING AWAY FROM IT.
MANY ADMIN REQUIREMENTS USE WEB SITES
MANY IF NOT MOST OF THE ACCESS TO SYSTEMS AND BUSINESS IS WEB BASED.
MANY OF THE AREAS THAT I TEACH IN DO NOT HAVE RELEVANT HARD COPY RESOURCES.
MORE DEMAND FOR FLEXIBLE LEARNING OPTIONS
MORE INFO IS MOVING ONLINE EVERY MOMENT OF EVERY DAY
MOST CURRENT AND UP-TO-DATE INFORMATION AND RESOURCES
MOST EFFICIENT TOOL FOR FINDING UPDATE AND RELEVANT INDUSTRY INFORMATION AND CHANGES.
MOST OF OUR STUDENTS ARE INTERNET-SAVVY. WE ARE ENCOURAGED BY THE CE AND BY THE MINISTER TO GEAR OUR TEACHING
TO E-LEARNING AND YET VERY LITTLE SUPPORT IS GIVEN TO ENABLE THIS TO HAPPEN IN A SUSTAINED WAY. IF WE ARE TO CONNECT
WITH THE GEN Y STUDENTS WE NEED TO SPEAK THE LANGUAGE AND USE THE TOOLS THEY PREFER TO USE.
MOST OF THE WORK I DO REQUIRES REFERENCE INFORMATION WHICH IS NOWADAYS ONLY PROVIDED ONLINE
MUCH OF MY COURSE MATERIAL IS OBTAINED FROM THE NET
MUCH OF MY ORDERING IS DONE ONLINE. SOME COMPANIES ONLY SEND INVOICES VIA THE NET.
MUST ACCESS ACADEMIC POLICIES, AND SOURCE LEARNING MATERIALS.
MY AREA IS TECHNOLOGY BASED, THEREFORE THE INTERNET IS VERY IMPORTANT TO EVERY ACTIVITIES
MY FUNCTIONS WOULD TAKE MUCH LONGER AND MY LEARNING RESOURCES WOULD NOT BE UP TO DATE.
MY ROLE IS AN INTERNET BASED ONE - ADMINISTERING WEBSITE CONTENT/USERS, CODING, WEBSITE GOVERNANCE, MANAGING/CO-
ORDINATING ONLINE SYSTEMS, ETC. I ALSO USE IT AS A PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT TOOL TO ACCESS INFORMATION, LEARN,
CONTACT COLLEAGUES VIA IM TO 'ASK A FRIEND' WHEN NEEDING EXTRA EXPERTISE ON A TASK, EMAIL, ETC.
MY STUDENTS LEARN AND ARE ASSESSED VIA A RANGE OF TASKS, 30% OF WHICH HAVE AN INTERNET LINK. EG WHEN STUDYING
OH&S THEY GO TO VARIOUS SPECIFIED SITES TO LEARN & THEN DO AN ONLINE TEST WHICH THEY PRINT AS PROOF OF COMPLETION
OF THAT TASK. THEIR TASK MIGHT BE TO WORK OUT THE PRICE FOR A RANGE OF LETTERS & PARCELS ETC TO A VARIETY OF
DESTINATIONS WHICH THEY HAVE TO CHECK USING THE AUSTRALIA POST SITE FOR THE LATEST POSTAL CHARGES.
MY STUDENTS STUDY EXTERNALLY AND SUBMIT WORK AND COMMUNICATE VIA THE INTERNET, WITHOUT THIS I COULD NOT DO MY
JOB - VERY IMPORTANT
MY USE VARIES DEPENDING ON THE SUBJECTS I AM TEACHING AT THE TIME. WHEN TEACHING BUSINESS TAX I USE THE ATO WEBSITE
FAIRLY EXTENSIVELY AND IF TEACHING OH&S THE WORKSAFE WEBSITE IS USED QUITE A LOT. I USE THE INTERNET LESS OFTEN
WHEN TEACHING STRAIGHT ACCOUNTING SUBJECTS.
NEED INFORMATION FROM AROUND THE WORLD
NEED THE NET TO UPDATE MOODLE COURSE CONTENT FOR DISTANCE / FLEXIBLE DELIVERY
NEED TO KEEP UP TO DATE / LATEST NEWS / EVENTS
NEED TO KEEP UP TO DATER WITH CURRENT RESEARCH, PLUS IT IS AN ESSENTIAL COMMUNICATION TOOL
NEW GENERATION EXPECT INTERACTION WITH PC
NEW INFORMATION, LATEST INFORMATION IS ON THE NET QUICKLY ACCESS INFORMATION - FASTER THAN LOOKING AT BOOKS
RESOURCES ARE IN COLOR, ANIMATIONS, MOVIES ETC - BETTER FOR LEARNING STUDENTS ARE FAMILIAR MORE FAMILIAR WITH
INTERNET AND COMPUTERS THAN WITH BOOKS
NO CURRENT OR RELEVENT KNOWLEDGE (INFORMATION) ON THE INTERNET TO BE FOUND.
NO INTERNET, NO USE OF MAJOR TOOL
NONE
NOT ALL THAT OFTEN USED
OFTEN THE MOST UP TO DATE MATERIALS ARE ON THE INTERNET

OTHER INFORMATION IS AVAILABLE FOR MY SUBJECTS EG IN THE LIBRARY SO IT IS NOT IMPOSSIBLE TO PRODUCE LEARNING
MATERIALS WOTHOUT THE INTERNET BUT THE SPEED OF INFORMATION VIA THE INTERNET IS GREAT IT ALSO ALLOWS SHARING OF
INFO ACROSS OTHER INSTITUTES ESPECIALLY INTERSTATE. I BELIEVE USING THE INTERNET IS VITAL TO DEMONSTRATE TO
STUDENTS THE EASE OF INFORMATION FINDING ANY WHERE ANY TIME. BUT IT IS LIMITED TO THEORY AND INFORMATION FINDING
AND PLAYS NO PART IN PRACTICAL TEACHING AND HAND SKILL.
OTHER RESOURCES ARE ALSO IMPT OTHER RESOURCES MAY BE OUTDATED QUICKLY, THOUGH. INTERNET IS FAST
OUR EDUCATIONAL PROGRAM EMPLOYS INNOVATIVE AND CONTEMPORARY METHODOLOGIES WHICH ARE SUPPORTED BY VARIOUS
INTEGRATED TECHNOLOGIES INCLUDING INTERNET. ALL STAFF AND STUDENTS IN OUR PROGRAM FREQUENTLY USE INTERNET AND
OTHER TECHNOLOGIES ON A DAILY BASIS TO COMMUNICATE WITH OTHERS, RESEARCH, PERFORM ONLINE LEARNING ACTIVITIES AND
ASSESSMENTS ETC TECHNOLOGY IS CRUCIAL TO SUPPORTING NEW TRAINING METHODOLOGIES SUCH AS FLEXIBLE LEARNING
WHERE STUDENTS ARE EMPOWERED TO STUDY WHEN, WHERE & HOW THEY LIKE
OUR SCHOOL DELIVERY IS STARTING TO REVOLVE AROUND A RELIABLE INTERNT SERVICE PLUS I USE IT AS A RESEARCH TOOL.
PART OF MY ROLE AS CONSULTANT IS TO HAVE READY ACCESS TO ACTS, AWARDS AND OTHER FORMS AND DOCUMENTS. HARD
COPY IS NOT ALWAYS THE MOST UP TO DATE AND IS NOT VERSION CONTROLLED.
PROMPT ACCESS TO INFORMATION FOR CLIENTS
PROVIDES ME WITH ACCESS TO A VERY WIDE RANGE OF SOURCES
PROVIDES ME WITH THE LATEST IDEAS / DATA. QUICK EFFICIENT WAY TO SOURCE RELEVANT INFORMATION ( EG
WWW.ECONOMIST.COM ) GOOD / ENTERTAINING WEBSITES AVAILABLE AS REFERENCES FOR MY STUDENTS. APPLICABLE TO ALL MY
SUBJECTS TAUGHT.
PROVIDES REAL WORK EXAMPLES, CASE STUDIES, DOCUMENTS, RELEVANT ARTICLES IN MY AREAS OF TEACHING.
PROVIDES UPTO DATE INFO
QUICK ACCESS TO UPDATED INFORMATION
RAPID DEVELOPMENT OF ELECTRONIC EQUIPMENT AND COMPONENTS
RATHER LOOK ON LINE THAN PHONING
RESEARCH
RESEARCH ABILITIES. RESOURCES FOR STUDENTS. COMMUNICATION.
RESEARCH AT YOUR FINGER TIPS
RESEARCHING TOPICS, UP TO DATE INFORMATION, TRENDS, NEWS, AVAILABLE IMMEDIATELY
SAVES TIME AND MONEY PLUS IT IS A HUGE DATABASE. JUST HAVE TO BE CAREFUL WITH THE QUALITY AND RELIABILITY OF THE
INFORMATION.
SO MANY TOOLS AVAILABLE ON OR THRU IT. SO MUCH INFORMATION. MAKES INFORMATION ACCESSIBLE TO USERS 24/7 ON OR OFF
CAMPUS. SO EASY TO USE AND KEEP UP TO DATE. CHEAPER THAN PRINTING WORKBOOKS, NOTES ETC... GREAT WAY OF POOLING
INFORMATION, FACILITATES WORKING ACROSS CAMPUSES WITH CLIENTS AND COLLEAGUES.
SO MUCH OF MY WORK AND STUDY REVOLVES AROUND ELECTRONIC ACCESS, IT IS NOT AN OPINION, IT'S A FACT OF LIFE WHEN
WORKING IN THE LIBRARY.
SOME OF MY SUBJECT AREA IS THE INTERNET
STUDENT EXPECTATION FOR ALL MATERIALS TO BE ONLINE
SUBJECT INFORMATION FOR STUDENT MANUALS
TEACHING SCIENCE IT IS A WIDE AND CURRENT SOURCE OF INFORMATION FOR THE STUDENTS AND MYSELF
TEACHING STUDENTS "HOW TO LEARN" THEREFORE THEY NEED TO ACCESS UP TO DATE INFORMATION WHICH IS NOT AVAILABLE IN
TEXT BOOKS.
TEACHING SUBJECTS IN AN "INTERNATIONAL" SCHOOL (SWISS BADGED DIPLOMA) AND WITH 75%+ INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS,
READY ACCESS TO CURRENT ISSUES ON AN INTERNATIONAL FRONT CONTINUES TO KEEP MY STUDENTS INTERESTED IN THE
CONTENT.
TECHNOLOGY IN THE MUSIC INDUSTRY IS ESSENTIAL TO SUCCESS.
THE ABILITY TO RESOURCE UP TO DATE INFORMATION AND FOR SPONTANEOUS RESPONSE TO QUESTIONS/ISSUES
THE INFORMATION IS CURRENT/UP TP DATE
THE INFORMATION THAT IS PROVIDED
THE INTERNET CAN PROVIDE ALL THE INFORMATION WHICH I REQUIRE, I CAN USE IT FOR VIDEO, POWER POINT, NEWS SERVICE,
GROUP CONTACT, AND IT IS FREE
THE INTERNET GIVES ME UP TO DATE INFORMATION. AREAS SUCH AS STANDARDS, REGULATIONS, SAFETY AND GOVERNMENT
POLICY WHICH CHNAGES REGULARLY.




                                        education.au 2008                                             Page 61 of 160
THE INTERNET HAS BECOME THE RESOURCE OF CHOICE FOR STUDENTS AND THAT'S WHY WE, AS EDUCATORS, NEED TO BE ABLE TO
UNDERSTAND AND USE IT.
THE INTERNET HELPS IN THE MAIL ROOM TO DETERMINE WHERE INDIVIDUAL WORKERS ARE LOCATED (SA DIRECT) AND WHICH
CONTRIES INTERNATIONAL MAIL NEEDS TO GO TO (IF IT'S BEEN POORLY ADDRESSED).
THE INTERNET I USE FOR RESEARCH MAINLY - THE BASIC PRINCIPLES I TEACH AND I CAN GET BY WITHOUT USING THE INTERNET IF I
HAD TOO.
THE INTERNET IS A TOOL IN WHICH INFORMATION IS DISPLAYED FROM AROUND THE WORLD. HAVING THIS INFORMATION READILY
AVAILABLE FOR TEACHING PURPOSES OR CHECKING OUT COMPETITORS DETAILS IS VERY IMPORTANT TO RUNNING A BUSINESS.
THE INTERNET PROVIDES IS EXCELLENT FOR RESOUCEING DOCUMENTS, ARTICLES AND RELEVANT WEBSITES FOR
EDUCATIONALISTS.
THE INTERNET PROVIDES ME WITH A WIDE VARIETY OF OPTIONS AND INFORMATION WHEN NEEDING TO ARRANGE FUNCTIONS -
FINDING CERTAIN PLACES AROUND ADELAIDE FOR A VENUE. WITH OUT INTERNET ACCESS I DON'T THINK I WOULD BE AWARE OF HALF
THE OPTIONS AVAILABLE TO THE PUBLIC.
THE INTERNET/INTRANET PROVIDES EXTENSIVE RESOURCES TO SUPPORT MY JOB. THIS INCLUDES LOCATING RELEVANT TAFE SA
AND DFEEST POLICIES, PROCEDURES AND DOCUMENTS. A VARIETY OF INFORMATION FOR RESEARCH TOPICS, CONTACT
INFORMATION FOR VARIOUS AUSTRALIAN AND INTERNATIONAL VENDORS FOR MEDICAL SUPPLIES, EQUIPMENT, STATIONERY,
VIDEO/DVD RESOURCES AND TEXT BOOKS AS WELL AS CURRENCY CONVERSION WHERE NECESSARY.
THE INTRANET PROVIDES AN INSTANT SOURCE OF UP TO DATE INFORMATION TO INCLUDE IN LECTURES AND THE MANY OF TTHIS
GENERATION OF STUDENTS RESPOND VERY POSITIVELY TO USING THE INTRANET IN THEIR LEARNING.
THE PROJECT MANAGED BY ME IS ALL ABOUT DESIGNING AND DELIVERING ONLINE EVENTS TO STUDENTS
THE SPEED OF DELIVERY AND BREADTH OF INFORMATION IS VERY IMPORTANT TO THE DELIVERY OF THE INFORMATION AND
RELIABILITY OF EVIDENCE THAT I PROVIDE OR DELIVER IN THE CONTENT
THE WORLD AT YOUR FINGERTIPS. TIME EFFICIENT
THERE IS SUCH AN INSTANT WEALTH OF INFORMATION OUT THERE. IT KEEPS ME IN TOUCH WITH THE LATEST EDUCATIONAL
OPPORTUNITIES TO ENSURE I MEET THE NEEDS OF MY LEARNERS IN A WAY THAT EMBRACES WHERE THEY ARE WITH THEIR
UNDERSTANDING OF THE WORLD.
TO KEEP MYSELF & STUDENTS UP TO DATE WITH RELEVANT INFORAMTION FROM AROUND THE WORLD AS WELL AS AUST
TO MAKE MY COURSES MORE FLEXIBLE I EMPLOY A LOT OF E-LEARNING STRATEGIES. WE HAVE OUR OWN WEBSITE WITH LINKS TO
RESOURCES. ALSO WE LINK TO MANY EXTERNAL SITES THAT GIVE THE STUDENTS MUCH MORE INFORMATION THAN I AS AN
INDIVIDUAL TEACHER CAN GIVE THEM.
TOURISM AND TRAVEL INDUSTRY IS ALWAYS CHANGING AND STUDENTS NEED TO JOB READY. LECTURES NEED TO INCLUDE:
UPDATES FROM INDUSTRY MEDIA - E TRAVEL BLACKBOARD, TRAVEL WEEKLY, TOURISM AUSTRALIA. TRAVEL PRODUCT AVAILABLE
ONLINE HAS EXPANDED EXPONENTIALLY. THE INTERNET PRODUCT DISTRIBUTION (SALES OR E BUSINESS)OPPORTUNITIES ARE
GLOBAL.
UP TO DATE AND ALWAYS AVAILABLE
UP TO DATE INFO AVAILABLE AND ITS FROM A WORLD WIDE SOURCE. ITS POSSIBLE TO LOOK AT WHAT SIMILAR PEOPLE IN OTHER
COUNTRIES ARE DOING.
UP TO DATE INFORMATION, INTERACTIVE LEARNING MATERIALS
UP TO DATE INFORMATION, QUICK ACCESS,
UP TO DATE LATEST INFO
UP TO DATE RESOURCES
UP TO DATE, CURRENT AND RELEVANT
UPDATED INFORAMTION THAT CAN BE ACCESSED QUICKLY
UPDATING RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT, STATISTICS, SPECIALISED DATA, RESOURCES FOR INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS WITH
LIMITED ENGLISH SKILLS.
UP-TO-DATE RESOURCES AND RESEARCH 24/7 CONTACT WITH COLLEAGUES
USE IT ALL THE TIME SO WITHOUT IT WOULD MAKE IT VERY DIFFICULT TO DO MY JOB
USE IT DAILY, READY ACCESS TO WIDER REFERNCES SOURCES
USE IT TO FIND RESOURCES FOR STUDENTS AND FOR INTERACTING WITH STUDENTS.
USEFUL BUT COULD DO WITHOUT
USEFUL FOR FINDING INFORMATION. ALSO USEFUL FOR COMMUNICATION EG EMAIL
USING PRINTED RESOURCES SATISFIES THE TRAINING NEEDS AND NOT ALL STUDENTS ARE COMPUTER LITERATE ENOUGH TO USE
INTERNET RESOURCES FOR TRAINING. THIS APPLIES EVEN TO STUDENTS WHO ARE DOING SUBJECTS COURSES THAT REQUIRE THE




                                        education.au 2008                                               Page 62 of 160
USE OF SOFTWARE FOR TRAINING PURPOSES. EG AUTOCAD. IN MY EXPERIENCE, IT IS SURPRISING HOW MANY STUDENTS DOING
THESE TYPES OF COURSES STILL STUGGLE WITH THE BASIC COMPUTER SKILLS. PRINTED RESOURCES SEEM TO SATISFY THE
MAJORITY.
USING WORDPRESS TO ACT AS COURSE/STUDENT PORTAL
VARIETY OF INFORMATION, CURRENT CONTEMPORARY TRENDS, GLOBAL KNOWLEDGE FOR MY INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS,
PERSONAL AND PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT
VAST ARRAY OF REFERENCE SOURCES AVAILABLE. ENABLES UP TO DATE EAMPLES FOR TEACHING THAT ARE CURENT AND
RELEVANT TO DIFFERENT STUDENTS
VERY GOOD RESOURCE
VITAL TO PROMOTE WORKPLACE EMPLOYABILITY SKILLS IN THE BUSINESS ADMINSITRATION AREA
WE HAVE NOT HAD ENOUGH MONEY OR THE NEED TO TRANSFER OUR LEARNING RESOURCES TO AN ON LINE FORMAT
WE HAVE UNITS ONLINE THAT I NEED TO MONITOR AND CHECK FOR STUDENT PROGRESS. ALSO FOR SUBJECT CONTENT AND
RESOURCES
WE INTERACT ON A DAILY BASIS WITH EXTERNAL STUDENTS, ON CAMPUS STAFF AND STUDENTS (GEN Y INCLUDED) THAT EXPECT
AND DEMAND ACCESS TO HIGH QUALITY WEB BASED RESOURCES (INTERNET). HALF OF MY WORK LOAD IS BASED ALMOST
EXCLUSIVELY ON FINDING, EVALUATING, AND MAKING AVAILABLE WEB BASED RESOURCES - WRITING USER GUIDES AND DELIVERING
RESAERCH SKILLS SESSION TO CORE TAFE SA CLIENTS. TODAY'S FEE PAYING CUSTOMER IS VERY DEMANDING AND DOESN'T
TOLERATE RESTRICTIONS AND BLOCKS WITHOUT VALID REASONS.
WIDE KNOWLEDGE AND SKILLS REQUIRED FOR MY WORK COMMUNICATION AND NETWORKING SIGNIFICANT PART OF MY WORK
WITHOUT INTERNET I COULD NOT WORK FROM HOME. BEING PART TIME AND HAVING A "DAY JOB" IT IS ESSENTIAL THAT I WORK
FROM HOME IN THE EVENINGS AND WEEKENDS TO COMPLETE THE TEACHING I DO.
WITHOUT THE INTERNET I WOULD HAVE NO WORK.
WORK ENVIRONMENT IS INCREASINGLY ONLINE; GROWING DEMAND FOR WORKING/STUDYING ONLINE; ALSO STUDENTS AND OTHER
STAKEHOLDERS EXPECT TO BE ABLE TO ACCESS THE ONLINE ENVIRONMENT QUICKLY AND EFFICIENTLY, AND EXPECT TO BE ABLE
TO USE WEB 2.0 SITES AND TOOLS AT TAFE. THE TAFE ONLINE ENVIRONMENT LEAVES A LOT TO BE DESIRED WITH CONSTANT
NETWORK AND SERVER PROBLEMS, SLOW LOADING TIMES, LACK OF BANDWIDTH, ETC. WE ARE EAGER TO USE ADVANCED
WEB/ONLINE TOOLS BUT THE NETWORK INFRASTRUCTURE LETS US DOWN.
WORK IN INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY - NEED TO KEEP UP TO DATE WITH INDUSTRY DEVELOPMENTS
WORK IN IT AND LIBRARY STUDIES WORKGROUP
WORKING ACCROSS CAMPUSES MEANS I RELY ON THE INTERNET TO MANAGE TEACHING RESOURCES. THE INTERNET IS MY
PROMARY RESOURCE FOR REFERENCE MATERIAL.
WORKING IN A MULTILINGUAL ENVIRONMENT, THE INTERNET MAKES A VAST RANGE OF INFORMATION AVAILABLE, ASSISTING ME WITH
DEVELOPING MATERIALS AND HELPING ME LEAD STUDENTS TO DEVELOP BROADER PERSEPCTIVES IN LEARNING AND A MORE
GLOBAL UNDERSTANDING OF THEIR WORK.
WOULD NOT HAVE THE RANGE OF TOOLS AND RESOURCES THAT I NEED FOR MY WORK. WITHOUT THE INTERNET I WOULD USE A LOT
MORE PAPER AND THE WHOLE LEARNING PROCESS WOULD BE A LOT SLOWER.



VIC
EDUCATIONAL TECHNOLOGY IS MY FIELD OF STUDY.
ESSENTIAL FOR RESEARCH, ESSENTIAL FOR ACCESSING STUDENTS' PAPERS/ASSIGNMENTS FOR MARKNG, ESSENTIAL FOR PUTTING
UP MARKS/GRADES FOR THE STUDENTS AND COMMENTS ESSENTIAL FOR COMMUNICATING WITH STUDENTS AND COLLEAGUES
I NEED THE INTERNET FOR EVERY ASPECT OF MY WORK
I USE IT FOR 80% OF MY WORK - EMAIL, RESEARCH, COMMUNICATION
I WORK ONLINE. WITHOUT THE INTERNET I CAN'T DO MY JOB.
IT'S A KEY COMMUNICATION AND RESEARCH TOOL
THE INTERNET PROVIDES ME WITH ACCESS TO COLLEAGES IRRESPECTIVE OF THEIR GEOGRAPHIC LOCATION. I ALSO HAVE ACCESS
TO A HUGE WEALTH OF INFORMATION ON SUBJECTS CRUCIAL TO MY WORK PERFORMANCE.
TIME IS SAVED BY ACCESSING MATERIALS VIA THE INTERNET. IT IS QUICKER TO LOOK UP A DATABASE, FIND THE ONLINE JOURNAL
AND DOWNLOAD THE ARTICLE THAN TO WALK TO THE LIBRARY, PICK UP THE JOURNAL AND PHOTOCOPY THE ARTICLE.

80% OF MY WORK RELIES ON INTERNET ACCESS
A GOOD SOURCE OF INFORMATION, BUT VERY TIME CONSUMING IN LOCATING RELEVANT INFORMATION FOR A PARTICULAR
PURPOSE AT TIMES.
A NEED TO SEARCH FOR UP TO DATE INFORMATION THAT IS NOT AVAILABLE IN OTHER FORMATS.
ABILITY TO KEEP UP WITH BEST PRACTICE IN OTHER STATES, COUNTRIES
ABLE TO QUICKLY ACCESS IDEAS AND LEARNING. DIRECT SUPPORT OF CONCEPTS TAUGHT IN CLASSRROOMS THROUGH ONLINE
EDUCATIONAL GAMES. COMMUNICATION WITH OTHER STAFF AND ADMINISTRATORS.
ACCESS TO DET INFORMATION IS ALL ON LINE.
ACCESS TO PEERS, EASE OF COMMUNICTION, ACCESS TO INFORMATION
ACCESS TO UP TO DATE INFORMATION EMAIL CONNECTION FOR PROFESSIONAL PURPOSES ACCESS TO SUBJECT DATA BASES ETC
ETC ETC
ACCESS TO UP TO DATE RESOURCES
ALL MY LESSON DELIVERY IS ONLINE.
ALL REPORTING IS VIA EDUC. PORTAL, WEALTH OF STRATEGIES AT FINGERTIPS OTHERWISE NOT AVAILABLE WHEN STUCK IN
CLASSROOM ALL DAY IE YOU CAN ONLY PHYSICALLY ACCESS SO MANY PD COURSES INTERNET OVERCOPMES THIS LIMITATION, NET
WORKING WITH COLLEAGUES PRACTICAL & EASY VIA INTERNET, ACCESSING EDUATION DEPT. SYLLABUS IS VIA INTERNET..... LIST
GOES ON .... SPECIFIC SUBJECT SITES OFER NEW & UP TO DATE WORK SAMPLES/IDEAS.... CAN KEEP ABREAST OF NEW
MATERIALS...
ALMOST ALL ASPECTS OF MY ADMINISTRATIVE TASKS INVOLVE USING THE INTERNET. I CAN ACCESS RELEVENT AND UP TO DATE
INFORMATION QUICKLY AND IT IS AT MY FINGER TIPS.
AS A PRIMARY TEACHER THE PORTAL ACCESS IS VITAL, AS IS THE ABILITY TO FIND RESOURCES AND INFORMATION THAT WILL HELP
IN MY DELIVERY OF LESSONS
AS A SCHOOL THAT IS REMOTE WE RELY HEAVILY ON IT FOR INFORMATION AND ACCESS TO THE DEPARTMENT INFASTRUCTURE
AS CURRICULUM ICT CO-ORDINATOR FOR MY SCHOOL, I ENCOURAGE TEACHERS AND STUDENTS TO ACCESS THE INTERNET          TO
ENHANCE CLASSROOM LEARNING PROGRAMS
AS I TEACH IN AN ISOLATED SMALL SCHOOL IT IS ANOTHER WAY TO RESOURCE IDEAS AND THOUGHTS FOR THE APROPIATE LEVELS
WHEN I HAVE NO ACCESS TO ECE STAFF LOCALLY.
AS ICT COORDINATOR IT IS MY JOB TO SHOW TEACHERS AND STUDENTS HOW TO 'UNLOCK' THE WEALTH OF KNOWLEDGE AVAILABLE
ON THE INTERNET.
ASSESS TO DEPARTMENT PORTAL.... CF, SYLLABUS, EDUCATION UPDATES EMAILS FROM PRINCIPAL AS NO PHONE IS IN MY ROOM
AVAILABILITY OF RESOURCES ONLINE THAT OTHER TEACHERS HAVE ALREADY DESIGNED.
AVAILABILITY TO A WIDER AND DIVERSE RANGE OF MATERIAL
BECAUSE TECHNOLOGY AND EVENTS ARE CONSTANTLY CHANGING IT IS IMPORTANT TO KEEP UP TO DATE IN ALL AREAS. BEING
INFORMED AND UP TO DATE IS IMPORTANT
BEING ABLE TO INFORM PARENTS BY EMAILS. SEEKING INFORMATION DET PORTALS FOR ASSISTENCE
CAN KEEP UPTO DATE WITH LATEST PRACTICE, NETWORK WITH TEACHERS IN THE SAME LEARNING AREA, FIND NEW AND EXCITING
IDEAS/RESOURCES, CAN GET INFO OFF THE DET PORTAL TO HEL INFORM MY PLANNING AND REPORTING.
CANNOT WORK WITHOUT IT
CHANGING PARADIGM.
COMMUNICATION VIA EMAIL AND OTHER ONLINE MEANS HAS BECOME THE NORM.
COMPUTER USE IS THE WAY OF THE FUTURE IN CUTTING DOWN PAPER WASTE IN COMUNICATION
COMPUTERS ARE A WAY OF LIFE NOW AND IF WE ARE TO KEEP UP WITH THE STUDENTS WE NEED TO KEEP UP WITH TECHNOLOGY.
CONSTANTLY DEVELOPING NEW WORKSHEETS FOR STUDENTS AT THEIR INDIVIDUAL LEVELS
CRUCIAL IN COMMUNICATION RESOURCES TO SUPPORT STAFF SUPPORT
EASE AT BEING ABLE TO GET UP TO DATE INFORMATION. IE CHANGES TO POLICY.
EASE OF ACCESSING A WIDE RANGE OF RESOURCES
EASY METHOD TO RESEARCH AND GET IDEAS AND LEARN NEW INFORMATION
EDUCATIONAL REQUIREMENTS CAN NOT BE MET WORKING IN ISOLATION.
ENGAGING STUDENTS ONLINE IS VERY IMPORTANT BOTH IN DEVELOPING THEIR SKILLS AND IN MAINTAINING THEIR INTEREST
THROUGH USE OF 'REAL WORLD' CONTEXTS




                                       education.au 2008                                             Page 64 of 160
ESSENTIAL FOR UP TO DATE RESOURCES, COLLABORATION AND PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT.                   OFFERS   ENRICHING
OPPORTUNITIES FOR CREATION AND COMMUNICATION.
EVERYTHING THAT IS NEW AND UPDATED IN THE DEPARTMENT IS WEB BASED
FABULOUS SOURCE OF IDEAS AND INFORMATION TO SUPPORT LESSON PLANNING. GREAT ON LINE ACTIVITIES TO SUPPORT
STUDENT LEARNING IN MATHS FOR GAMES ETC.
FAST WAY OF ACCESSING VITAL AND UP TO DATE INFORMATION. USEFUL FOR USE IN ACTIVITIES FOR STUDENTS.
FINDING THE RELEVANT INFORMATION I NEED TO ASSIST MY TEACHING SHOULD BE QUICK AND EASY. IT IS A TIME SAVER AND WITH
ALL THE INFORMATION OUT THERE IT SHOULD MAKE MY JOB EASIER.
FOR RESEARCH, COMMUNICATIONS WITHIN MY WORKPLACE.
GOOD ACESS TO RESOURCES AND DOWNLOADABLE CHARTS FOR USE IN SCHOOLS. DEPARTMENT WEBSITE HAS VERY GOOD
INFORMATION
GREAT STARTING POINT FOR FINDING REVELANT RESOURCES
HUGE CURRICULUM AND LEARNING / TEACHING RESOURCE.
HUGE RANGE OF RESOURCES AVAILABLE
I AM ABLE TO ACCESS UPTO DATE INFORMATION. I CAN FIND OUT DETAILS AS I NEED THEM. I AM ABLE TO SEE SYLLABUS AND OTHER
PLANNING AND ASSESSING TOOLS WITHOUT HAVING TO CARRY LOADS OF BOOKS AROUND.
I AM ABLE TO LEARN FROM OTHER PEOPLE AND SHARE THEIR RESOURCES. I CAN LOOK UP THEMES AND OUTCOMES AND THE
ACTIVITIES TO SUPPORT WHAT OUTCOMES I WANT THE STUDENTS TO ACHIEVE. IF I HAVE ANY PROBLEMS I CAN ACCESS
INFORMATION IN THAT AREA FOR GUIDANCE. I CAN BOOK PD'S ONLINE AND BE SENT INFORMATION ON PD'S ETC
I AM ABLE TO READILY CHECK AND GET INFO FOR LESSONS AND WORK RELATED ACTIVITIES
I AM AN EDUCATIONAL LEADER AND ALSO THE ICT COORDINATOR AT OUR SCHOOL. WE ARE HEAVILY INVOLVED IN ON-LINE
LEARNING AND HAVE FUNDING FOR THIS. OUR SCHOOL HAS IT'S OWN BLOG SPACE, AS WELL AS THE SCHOOL INTRANET WHICH IS
DEPENDENT ON THE INTERNET FOR MUCH OF IT'S CONTENT. THEREFORE THE INTERNET IS OF GREAT IMPORTANCE IN OUR SETTING
I AM LOCATED IN A RURAL, ALMOST REMOTE SCHOOL AND ACCESS TO GOOD RESOURCES IS LIMITED. I AM FORTUNATE IN THAT THE
IT RESOURCES IN MY CLASSROOM ALLOW EVERY STUDENT TO HAVE ACCESS TO A COMPUTER EACH SO I MAXIMISE THIS WHILE THEY
HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY.
I AM MANAGING THE DEVELOPMENT OF A PIECE OF WEB-BASED SOFTWARE FOR DET
I AM THE ICT COORDINATOR SO I USE THE INTERNET EVERYDAY WITH STUDENTS AND FOR MY OWN PURPOSES.
I CAN BE INNOVATIVE, I CAN ACHIEVE OUTCOMES IN A BETTER WAY, I ENJOY TEACHING MORE, I FEEL I AM A MORE EFFECTIVE
TEACHER, CHILDREN ARE MORE ENGAGED/MOYIVATED,
I CAN DO EVERYTHING ON PAPER
I CAN FOLLOW MY INTERESTS AND SEEK OUT THE INFORMATION I NEED INDEPENDENTLY.
I CAN SURVIVE ON DAYS WHEN MAINTENANCE IS HAPPENING BUT IT IS CONVENIENT, VERY USEFUL AND INFORMATIVE TO HAVE
ACCESS TO THE INTERNET TO ENHANCE MY TEACHING IDEAS AND RESOURCES.
I DO A LOT OF RESEARCH WITH STUDENTS AND FOR MYSELF
I DON'T BELIEVE IN REINVENTING THE WHEEL AND OFTEN SOMEONE HAS ALREADY DONE WHAT YOU ARE LOOKING FOR. I ALSO THINK
IT IS IMPORTANT FOR STUDENTS TO KNOW HOW TO ACCESS AND USE THE INTERNET SAFELY AND QUICKLY, AND TO KNOW WHAT
SORTS OF THINGS ARE AVAILABLE ON-LINE.
I FEEL WE LIVE IN A SOCIETY WHERE THE INTERNET IS IMPORTANT TO CHILDREN SO WE NEED TO KNOW ABOUT IT AND HOW TO USE
IT
I FIND THAT OTHER ENGLISH SPEAKING COUNTRIES HAVE GOOD EDUCATION SITES. IE LESSON PLAN IDEAS, WORKSHEETS ETC.....
I FIND THE INTERNET IMPORTANT IN ACCESSING UPDATED INFORMATION ESPECIALLY IN NUTRITION AND CHILDHOOD SUBJECTS.
HOWEVER BOOKS AND MAGAZINES ARE EASIER TO READ BUT TAKE TIME TO ACCESS THE INFORMATION THAT YOU ARE LOOKING
FOR
I GET A LOT OF MY TEACHING IDEAS AND RESOURCES ONLINE, AS WELL AS ALL FORMAL COMMUNICATIONS ARE MADE VIA EMAIL.
I HAVE ALMOST INSTANT CONTACT WITH COLLEAGUES. I HAVE IMMEDIATE ACCESS TO INFORMATION. THERE IS A PERMANENT
RECORD OF MY WORK - NOT AS EASY TO LOSE ELECTRONIC WORK AS A PIECE OF PAPER. ON TH DOWNSIDE - PEOPLE ALSO HAVE
INSTANT ACCESS TO ME AND EXPECT INSTANT REPLIES.
I HAVE OPEN LEARNING STUDENTS WHO ACCESS RESOURCES I UPLOAD ONTO OUR SCHOOL WEBSITE AND THEREFORE HAVING THE
BANDWIDTH TO VIEW THE RESOURCES IS IMPORTANT TO THE CONTINUING INTEREST IN MY SUBJECT AREA.
I LIVE IN A RURAL REGION AND ACCESS TO LIBRARIES IS NOT AVAILABLE - ALSO I WORK AT A SMALL SCHOOL WITH ONLY 3 OTHER
TEACHERS ON STAFF - SO I NEED TO SEARCH OUTSIDE THE SQUARE FOR ORIGINAL LESSON IDEAS.




                                      education.au 2008                                                Page 65 of 160
IMAKE A LOT OF MY OWN WORKSHEETS & USE GOOGLE IMAGES A LOT TO FIND SUITABLE CLIPART.            I   ALSO FIND IDEAS   &
WORKSHEETS & SUITABLE SITES FOR MY YEAR 4 STUDENTS TO ACCESS FOR INFO
I NEED TO BE ABLE TO ACESS HRMIS TO DO THE PAYS AND ALSO TO CHECK EMAILS TOO
I NEED TO KEEP PACE WITH MY STUDENTS LEVELS IN MEDIA AND CONTINUE TO BE INFORMED IN ALL SUBJECT AREAS IRRESPECTIVE
OF MY INTERESTS TO PERFORM TO THE BEST OF MY ABILITY IN MY WORKPLACE.
I NOW HAVE A SMARTBOARD IN THE CLASSROOM AND I USE THAT FOR MOST OF MY LESSONS. THE INTERNET IS USED AS A SOURCE
FOR INFORMATION. I ALSO HAVE ACCESS TO A BANK OF LAPTOPS FOR THE STUDENTS AND THESE ARE USED FOR LESSON
ACTIVITIES BASED ON INTERNET INTERACTION SITES.
I OFTEN USE IT TO GATHER UP TO DATE INFORMATION ON TOPICS. I USE IT TO COMMUNICATE WITH COLLEAGUES AT OTHER
SCHOOLS NAD FOR PERSONAL PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT.
I REALLY ONLY USE IT AS AN ADJUNCT RATHER THAN AS A MAIN SUPPORT
I RELY ON EXERIENCE AND USE THE INTERNET TO SUPPORT ASPECTS I DO NOT FEEL CONFIDENT IN OR NEED MORE INFO ON.
I RELY ON THE INTERNET FOR MANY IDEAS/STRATEGIES AND ASSESSMENT.
I RELY ON THE INTERNET FOR RESOURCES, BUT ALSO NEED IMAGES OR SOUND ETC. TO INCORPORATE INTO MY ICT PRODUCTS OR
RESOURCES FOR MY STUDENTS.
I RESEARCH ACTIVITIES AND DIFFERENT WAYS OF TEACHING TOPICS ON THE INTERNET. I AM ALSO TRYING TO INTEGRATE
TECHNOLOGY INTO MY LESSONS AND MY CLASS HAS BEEN USING A VARIETY OF SITES AND ONLINE TOOLS TO SUPPORT THEIR
LEARNING. I ALSO FREQUENTLY FIND THINGS ON THE INTERNET TO USE ON MY IWB (READING BOOKS/POEMS/OTHER INTERACTIVE
GAMES)FOR SMALL GROUP AND WHOLE CLASS ACTIVITIES. THROUGH BLOGGING I HAVE ALSO BEEN INTERACTING WITH OTHER
TEACHERS.
I TEACH ECONOMICS AND S & E. I LIKE TO INCLUDE CURRENT ISSUES AND DATA IN MY LESSONS. THAT IS ONE REASON WHY I FOUND
IT FRUSTRATING THAT I COULD NOT USE YOU TUBE AT HOME ON THE DET SYSTEM. I'M AN ADULT FOR GODS SAKES!!! THERE WERE
SOME POLITICAL CARTOONS I WANTED TO USE IN CLASS - NO COULD DO.
I TEACH SCIENCE AND MATHS. SCIENCE KNOWLEDGE IS CHANGING SO QUICKLY THAT TEXT BOOKS ARE OFTEN OUT OF DATE OR
LACK THE MOST CURRENT INFORMATION. IT IS THE MOST CURRENT DISCOVERIES WHICH SEEM TO EXCITE THE STUDENTS AND
MAKE SOME OF THE TEACHING MORE RELEVANT TO THEM.
I TEACH STUDENTS HOW TO USE THE INTERNET TO FIND THE INFORMATION THEY NEED. IT IS VITAL THAT STUDENTS KNOW HOW TO
RESEARCH EFFECTIVELY USING THE INTERNET BEFORE THEY GET TO HIGH SCHOOL. I USE MANY OF THE INTERACTIVE SITES TO
CONSOLIDATE STUDENTS' UNDERSTANDING OF TOPICS. I DOWNLOAD APPROPRIATE PROGRAMS TO ENCOURAGE STUDENT
CREATIVITY. E.G. SCRATCH
I TEACH VISUAL ART AND USE THE NET FOR RESOURCES
I TEACH YEAR 11 APPLIED INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY SO IT IS ESSENTIAL TO MY JOB
I THINK MY JOB COULD BE DONE WITHOUT THE INTERNET, BUT I THINK IT CAN BE DONE QUICKER AND BETTER WITH INTERNET
RESOURCES
I USE IT EVERY DAY WITH MY STUDENTS AND MY PEDAGOGY IS DEPENDENT UPON IT.
I USE IT QUITE A LOT AND IT WOULD TAKE TOO LONG TO FIND RESOURCES WITHOUT THE INTERNET
I USE IT SO MUCH...HAVING TO TRAWL THROUGH SHELVES AND SHELVES OF RESOURCE BOOKS AT SCHOOL AND THEN PHOTOCOPY
IS A LOT MORE TIME CONSUMING AND THE INFORMATION IN BOOKS BECOMES REDUNDANT SO QUICKLY THESE DAYS...I CAN FIND
LITTLE VIDEOS [AM FINDING TOTAL BLOCK OF YOU TUBE AT SCHOOL TO BE PAINFUL BY THE WAY] ETC AND I ALSO MAKE
POWERPOINT PRESENTATIONS AND IT IS INCREDIBLY EASY TO FIND IMAGES FOR THESE AND PUT THEM TOGETHER VERY QUICKLY
AND SPECIFICALLY FOR WHAT I AM DOING WITH MY KIDS...
I USE IT SO OFTEN TO ACCESS MATERIAL AND COMMUNICATE WITH STUDENTS AND COLLEAGUES.
I USE IT TO ACCESS INFO FOR EDUCATIONAL RESEARCH, RESEARCH INTO MEDICINES THAT STUDENTS ARE TAKING FOR ADHD,
DEPRESSION ETC, EDUCATIONAL TRENDS,
I USE IT TO COMMUNICATE AND FIND INFORMATION FOR MY STUDENTS
I USE IT TO QUICKLY FIND INFORMATION OR ANSWERS TO QUESTIONS THE STUDENTS MAY HAVE. I TEACH INTERNET RESEARCH
SKILLS USING WEBQUESTS. THIS IS THE BASIS OF MOST STUDENT RESEARCH IN THE FUTURE AND CHN NEED TO KNOW HOW TO
NAVIGATE THEIR WAY AROUND THE WEB. I ALSO STRESS AND TEACH THEM THAT THERE IS EDUCATIONAL BENEFIT TO THE INTERNET,
IT'S NOT JUST A CHAT AND GAMES SITE.
I USE ONLINE-BASED LEARNING PROGRAMMES. RECORDING ATTENDANCES
I USE THE INTERNET FOR RESEARCH PURPOSES
I USE THE INTERNET FREQUENTLY WHEN PLANNING TEACHING PROGRAMS AND ALSO USE MANY SITES TO SCAFFOLD MY STUDENTS
WHEN THEY ARE SEEKING INFORMATION




                                      education.au 2008                                                 Page 66 of 160
I USE THE INTERNET TO FIND RESOURCES AND INFORMATION TO MAKE TEACHING RESOURCE PACKAGES AND ACTIVITIES FOR MY
STUDENTS. I ALSO USE IT TO LOCATE RESOURCES FOR TEACHERS TO USE (I AM THE ICT CURRICULUM COORDINATOR FOR OUR
SCHOOL).
I USE THIS CONSTANTLY TO ENRICH MY TEACHING.
I WORK AT A SENIOR CAMPUS AND AM INVOLVED IN USING THE JANISON LEARNING MANAGEMENT SYSTEM TO DELIVER ELEARNING
SUBJECTS TO STUDENTS BOTH WITHIN THE SCHOOL AND OUTSIDE THE SCHOOL. WE ARE VERY INTERESTED IN DEVELOPING THIS
APPROACH ON A DISTRICT LEVEL TO PROVIDE A GREATER CHOICE OF SUBJECTS FOR STUDENTS IN YEARS 11 & 12. WE ALREADY
OFFER ECONOMICS AND BIOLOGY AND SEE THIS AS A WAY TO OVERCOME TEACHER SHORTAGE IN SPECIFIC SUBJECT AREAS AND A
WAY TO RATIONALISE SMALL CLASSES.
I WORK IN A LIBRARY AND OBVIOUSLY INTEGRATE ICT INTO MY PROGRAMME. USING THE INTERNET IS CRUCIAL FOR THIS TO OCCUR
IN A 'SEAMLESS' FASHION.
I WORK WITH CHILDREN FROM PP-7, SO WE ARE ALWAYS ACCESSING THE NET FOR A VARIETY OF USES. THE STUDENTS ARE GREAT
WITH ACCESSING INFORMATION, CUTTING AND PASTING IT AND THEN REWRITING IT IN THEIR OWN WORDS.
ICT IS INTEGRATED INTO MOST LEARNING AREAS AND IT IS ESSENTIAL TO DEVELOP THE SKILLS OF STUDENTS USING ALL
TECHNOLOGIES.
IF I DON'T HAVE ACCESS TO THE INTERNET I FEEL VERY ISOLATED IN THAT I CAN'T ACCESS MANY RESOURCES EASILY AND AM NOT
INCLUDED IN INFORMATION EXCHANGE THROUGH EMAIL AND SHARING OF WEBSITES ETC. HOWEVER, IT IS NOT VERY IMPORTANT IN
THAT THERE ARE OTHER ALTERNATIVE RESOURCES AVAILABLE AND AS I DON'T FEEL CONFIDENT ON THE INTERNET AND WITH
COMPUTERS I DON'T USE EITHER TO THEIR POTENTIAL, BUT ALSO AM QUITE ABLE TO DO WITHOUT THEM - AS WE USED TO!
IF I HAD MORE TIME TO LEARN MORE I WOULD USE IT MORE AS I WOULD FEEL MORE CONFIDENT!
IN TEACHING COMMERCE RELATED SUBJECTS THE USE OF COMPUTERS AND THE ABILITY TO RESEARCH FOR CURRENT DATA IS
PARAMOUNT. WITH MANY STUDENTS DOING TRAINEESHIPS AND WORK EXPERIENCE, RESULTING IN STUDENTS MISSING ONE OR
TWO SUBJECTS A WEEK, MY WORK MUST BE SAVED SOMEWHERE STUDENTS CAN EASILY ACCESS IT DURING THEIR STUDY PERIODS.
IN THE AREAS I TEACH IN, THERE IS NO LOCAL RESOURCES. I NEED TO MAKE/FIND MY OWN. INTERNET IS IMPORTANT TO FIND
OTHER PEOPLES IDEAS AND STRATEGIES THAT I MIGHT BE ABLE TO USE OR MODIFY
INFORMATION IS USUALLY ALWAYS AVAILABLE
INFORMATION IS VITAL TO STUDENT LEARNING. STUDENTS ARE LEARNING IN DIFFERENT WAYS THESE DAYS AND ARE USED TO
HAVING TECHNOLOGY AT THIER FINGERTIPS. WE NEED TO EMBRACE THESE CHANGES IN LEARNING AND ALLOW STUDENTS TO
LEARN THE WAY THEY LEARN BEST.
INSTANT ACCESS TO INFORMATION ADDRESSES STUDENTS NEEDS FOR INSTANT INFORMATION
INSTANT ACCESS TO TEACHING RESOURCES, LESSON IDEAS AND BLACKLINE MASTERS ON A RANGE OF TOPICS. I USE EDHELPER TO
CREATE A SPELLING ACTIVITIES THAT THE STUDENTS FIND ENJOYABLE. I USE WEBQUESTS FOR STUDENTS TO LEARN INTERACTIVELY
EG SIMPLE MACHINES.
INSTANT COMMUNICATION ADN FEEDBACK DIRECT ACCESS TO ONLINE RESOURCES INSTANTANEOUS WORK INPUT- MAKES FOR
EFFICIENCY
INTERACTING WITH COLLEAGUES, ACCESSING RELEVANT MATERIAL FOR STUDENTS
INTERACTIVITY WITH EXISTING ICT EQUIPMENT AT SCHOOL - SMART BOARD
INTERNET BRINGS INFORMATION IMMEDIATELY TO THE FINGERTIPS. NO DOWN TIME IN GETTING TO LIBRARIES, ETC. EFFECTIVE
COMMUNICATION AND FOLLOW UP IN A SHORT TIME SPAN.
INTERNET IS INSTANT, RELEVANT AND DIVERSE. ALLOWS FOR 1-1 OR MANY-MANY COMMUNICATION ACROSS SCHOOL, TOWN OR
GLOBE.
INTERNET IS ONE OF MANY TOOLS
IT ALLOWS FOR A WIDER RANGE OF CONTENT TO BE INCORPERATED INTO CURRICULUM DELIVERY, AND ALSO ALLOWS EASIER
ACCESS FOR SHARING OF IDEAS ETC BETWEEN EDUCATORS
IT ALLOWS FOR EASY ACCESS TO A WEALTH OF INFORMATION AND RAPID COMMUNICATION AND RESPONSE FROM COLLEAGUES ON
ANY SUBJECT.
IT ASSISTS ME WHEN COMMUNICATING WITH PEERS OUT OF SCHOOL HOURS OR FROM OTHER SCHOOLS. I USE A LOT OF THE
SEARCH ENGINES TO ASSIST RESEARCH FOR PROGRAMMING.
IT ENABLES ME TO ACCESS MORE INFORMATION THAN EVER CAN BE FOUND IN A SMALL SCHOOL.
IT ENABLES ME TO EASILY ACCESS ANY INFORMATION, POLICIES ETC NEEDED FOR MY WORK.
IT GIVES ME INSPIRATION TO TRY NEW IDEAS FOR LESSONS. IT GIVES ME INSTANT ACCESS TO CURRENT RESEARCH IN EDUCATION.
THE QUEENSLAND AND TASMANIAN EDUCATION DEPARTMENTS EXPLAIN PEDAGOGY CLEARLY AND THEIR EXPECTATIONS OF WHAT IS
REQUIRED FROM THEIR TEACHERS AND STUDENTS IS CLEARLY COMMUNICATED. THE UK EDUCATION WEBSITES HAVE BEEN GREAT
FOR IDEAS AND WORKSHEETS.




                                     education.au 2008                                               Page 67 of 160
IT HAS PROVIDED ANOTHER RESOURCE FOR RESEARCH AND IS A MUCH QUICKER TOOL FOR FINDING INFORMATION
IT HAS UP TO DATE AND RELEVANT RESOURCES AVAILABLE. IT SAVES TIME
IT IS A KEY LEARNING TOOL AND ALSO ONE FOR PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT. IT IS THE CURRENT MODE OF LEARNING,
ENGAGEMENT AND COMMUNICATION FOR MANY STUDENTS.
IT IS A QUICK AND RELATIVELY INEXPENSIVE RESOURCE.
IT IS A TOOL THAT IS OF INTEREST TO THE CHILDREN. IT IS EASY TO ACCESS TEACHING SITES. EXCELLENT GRAPHICS MAKE SOME
TEACHING AREAS, EG. MATHS, MORE INTERACTIVE, FUN AND CREATIVE.
IT IS A USEFUL TOOL BUT THERE ARE PLENTY OF OTHER TOOLS AVAILABLE. STUDENTS NEED TO LEARN TO USE A VARIETY OF
EDUCATIONAL TOOLS.
IT IS A VALUABLE SOURCE OF CONTENT WHEN CREATING UNITS OF WORK FOR STUDENTS. IT PROVIDES A LINK BETWEEN MYSELF
AND LIKE MINDED COLLEAGUES. PROFESSIONAL LEARNING.
IT IS A VERY LARGE PART OF THE REAL WORLD AND A TOOL THAT PEOPLE USE FOR SOCIAL AND BUSINESS. INFORMATION ACCESS
IS CRUCIAL TO EDUCATING CHILDREN EFFECTIVELY AND TEACHING THEM THE SKILLS TO USE THIS TOOL EFFICIENTLY IS A SKILL
THEY WILL ALL NEED AT LEAST SOME ABILITY IN.
IT IS AN INCREASING ARENA OF MATERIALS WHICH BACK UP WRITTEN RESOURCES. MOST CHILDREN HAVE THE INTERNET AT HOME
AND CAN PURSUE A TOPIC AT HOME. GREAT FOR GETTING RESOURCES FOR LESSONS AND FOR MAKING UP WEB QUESTS
IT IS ESSENTIAL TO TEACH STUDENTS TO USE THE INTERNET AS IT IS A MAJOR SOURCE OF INFORMATION IN TODAY'S WORLD.
IT IS INTEGRAL AND ESSENTIAL AS LIVING AND WORKING IN A REMOTE COMMUNITY IT IS OUR UMBILICAL CHORD TO THE REST OF THE
STATE, COUNTRY AND WORLD.
IT IS MY LIBRARY
IT IS MY MEANS TO NETWORKING AND WITHOUT IT I FIND IT HARD TO CONTACT PEOPLE AND ACCESS INFORMATION
IT IS USED DAILY AS A MEANS OF COMMUNICATION AND RESOURCES
IT IS USEFUL FOR RESEARCH IN A GEOGRAPHICALLY ISOLATED AREA. I CAN KEEP IN CONTACT WITH COLLEAGUES.
IT IS VERY IMPORTANT FOR ME TO BE ABLE TO COMMUNICATE BETWEEN HOME/SCHOOL, TO LOCATE RESOURCES APPLICABLE TO MY
TEACHING. THE MAIN DIFFICULTY IS GAINING SUFFICIENT ACCESS FOR THE CHILDREN TO USE THE INTERNET IN AN EFFICIENT AND
INTEGRATED MANNER.
IT PROVIDES A WEALTH OF RESOURCES AT MY FINGERTIPS.
IT PROVIDES A WIDER BASE OF INFORMATION
IT 'S THE NEW WORLD! KIDS ARE GETTING AHEAD OF US AND WE NEED TO KEEP UP
IT SUPPLIES A WEALTH OF RESOURCES AND UP TO DATE RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT
IT'S INSTANT AND GENERALLY RELIABLE AND ACCURATE. I HAVE MY 'FAVORITES'. IT IS A TOOL YOU CAN USE BOTH IN YOUR
CLASSROOM OR AT HOME FOR RESEARCH ON A THEME, ETC THERE ARE SO MANY GOOD EDUCATIONAL SITES THAT CAN MAKE
LEARNING MOTIVATING AND ALSO THE DELIVERY OF LESSONS AND CONTENT BY THE TEACHER. EMAILING PEOPLE FOR QUICK
REFERENCES AND CONTACTS, ENTERING COMPETITIONS, ETC
IT'S PART OF TODAYS WORLD AND WILL BE IMPORTANT TO STUDENTS IN THE FUTURE.
IT'S THE MOST CONVENIENT WAY OF KEEPING UP WITH NEW RESOURCES AND TRENDS.
LACK OF CONFIDENCE IN CORRECT USE
LATEST UP TO DATE INFORMATION. COMMUNICATION BETWEEN COLLEAGUES OFFSITE.
LIBRARY SOFTWARE NEEDS IT, FOR CIRCULATION. ALSO USE IT FOR DOWNLOADING CATALOGUE RECORDS.
LIS ARE NOW USED IN SCHOOL LIBRARIES SO WE NEED THE INTERNET FOR THAT. ALSO IN LIBRARIES WE FIND SUPPLEMENTARY
INFORMATION ON THE INTERNET. WHEN WE MAKE WEBQUESTS AND PATHFINDERS WE INCLUDE WEB SITES. STUDENTS EXPECT
ACCESS TO BOTH WRITTEN AND ONLINE RESOURCES IN THE LIBRARY
LOST WITHOUT IT AS ALL MY DATA IS STORED ON MY COMPUTER AND LINKED TO THE WEB
MANY OF THE RESOURCES FOR MY LEARNING AREA ARE CONSTANTLY BEING UPDATED - THE INTERNET PROVIDES THE MOST UP-
TO-DATE SOURCES OF READILY AVAILABLE AND ACCESSIBLE INFORMATION. STUDENTS ARE ABLE TO COMFORTABLY USE THE
INTERNET SITES AND ABLE TO ACCESS A BROADER RANGE OF RESOURCES THAN I COULD POSSIBLY ORDINARILY PROVIDE FOR
THEM.
MEMOS  FROM PRINCIPAL ARE EMAILED, WE MUST USE CURRICULUM MANAGER IN WA TO RECORD AND REPORT STUDENT
ACHIEVEMENT, SCHOOL AND LOCAL LIBRARIES DO NOT ALWAYS HAVE RELEVANT MATERIALS TO SUPPOST STUDENT LEARNING
MORE  AND MORE EDUCATIONAL POLICIES/UPDATES/COURSES/SUBJECT CONTENT ARE NOW PRODUCED IN ELECTRONIC FORM
RATHER THAN HARD COPY.
MORE AND MORE INFORMATION IS ACCESSED VIA THE INTERNET OR RESPONSES ARE REEQUIRED OVER THE NET




                                      education.au 2008                                                Page 68 of 160
MORE AND MORE WEB-BASED USE.
MOST LEARNING RESOURCES FOR WHITE BOARD ACTIVITIES ARE ACCESSED THROUGH THE NET. THE SCHOOL I AM AT HAS JUST
STARTED USING WEBMAIL SO ACCESS TO THIS IS IMPORTANT IN THE COMMUNICATION OF SCHOOL INFORMATION AS WELL.
MOST OF MY LESSONS ARE "POWER POINT" BASED, CONTAINING HYPERLINKS TO RELEVANT WEBSITES. AT LEAST ONCE A
FORTNIGHT MY STUDENTS COMPLETE WEB BASED LEARNING ACTIVITIES. THEIR ABILITY TO COMPLETE THE TASKS SUCCESSFULLY IS
DEPENDANT UPON RELIABLE INTERNET ACCESS.
MOST RESOURCES AND INFO ARE NOW ON LINE
MOST UP TO DATE INFO AND QUICKEST WAY TO GET INFO
MUCH OF MY RESEARCH AND IDEAS COMES FROM WEB BASED INFORMATION. INCREASINGLY, A PROPORTION OF DELIVERY IS ALSO
THROUGH ICT - WEBQUESTS, BLOGS ETC. ALL WORKSHEETS, ASSIGNMENTS, POWERPOINTS AND OTHER RESOURCES USED IN
CLASS ARE ALSO POSTED TO THE SCHOOL WEBSITE FOR STUDENT ACCESS.
MUCH OF THE RESOURCES DOCUMENTS POLICY ETC ARE DIGITAL
MY CLASSROOM IS NOT NETWORKED. I HAVE TO CONNECT IN SOMEONE ELSE'S ROOM, NOT MY OWN, WHICH IS WHY I CONNECT
FROM HOME IN MY OWN TIME.
MY WORK IS A COMBINATION OF FACE TO FACE AND DIGITAL COMMUNICATION. INTERNET STILL PROVIDES THE BEST OPTIONS FOR
THIS THAT I KNOW OF.
NEED TO ACCESS INFORMATION QUICKLY
NOT HAVING MANY CONCRETE RESOURCES AT HOME, I CAN LOOK UP SITES FOR IDEAS AND FIND UP TO DATE SUBJECT MATTER ON
ANY SUBJECT.
ON-LINE DOCUMENTS ARE EASIER TO SORT THROUGH. I'M STARTING TO USE OUR DEPARTMENTS WEB-SITE MORE AND TAKING
ADVANTAGE OF SITES THEY HAVE SUBSCRIBED TOO. I USE IT A LOT FOR PICTURES
ONLY ACCESS IT WHEN NECESSARY
OUR LIBRARY DATABASE IS ONLINE, STUDENTS USE ONLINE RESOURCES ALL THE TIME TO ASSIST THEM IN ACHIEIVING OUTCOMES.
KEEPS US CONNECTED TO THE WIDER COMMUNITY. WE ARE MULTI SITED AND OUR STUDENTS ARE ENROLLED AT THEIR OWN
SCHOOLS AND NOT WITH US.
OUR SCHOOL PASSES A LOT OF INFORMATION THROUGH INTRANET AND ITS ULWAYS USEFUL TO USE GOOGLE TO LOOK SOMETHING
UP QUICKLY.
PORTAL PROVIDES RELEVANT RESOURCES
PORTAL/INTRANET AS EASIEST WAY TO COMMUNICATE WITH ALL STAFF AS NOT EVERYONE WORKS FULL TIME & YOU DON'T GET
MUCH CHANCE ON BREAKS DUE TO PLAYGROUND DUTY ETC. MUCH FASTER FINDING RESOURCES THEN HAVING TO GO THROUGH
LOTS OF BOOKS ETC IN LIBRARY & CAN DEFINE YOUR SEARCH MORE.
PRIMARY SOURCE OF INFORMATION (AND SOURCE OF INFORMATION ON OTHER NON INTERNET SOURCES)
PROVIDES AN OPPORTUNITY TO SEE WHAT OTHER EDUCATORS ARE USING AND DOING WITH THEIR STUDENTS. PROVIDES A
NUMBER OF EDUCATIONAL SITES FOR STUDENTS TO USE.
PROVIDES EASY COMMUNICATION, ACCESS TO RESOURCES AND A WEALTH OF IDEAS AND ON-LINE ACTIVITES FOR LESSONS
PROVIDES ME WITH ACCESS TO CURRENT EDUCATIONAL RESEARCH IN AREAS OF NEED LIKE STUDNETS AT EDUCATIONAL RISK.
PROVIDES RESOURCES FOR INTREACTIVE LEARNING
PROVIDES QUICK ACCESS TO CATALOGUING DETAILS PLUS IDEAS FOR CLASSROOM TEACHERS. I ALSO USE A YAHOO EMAIL
ADDRESS FOR WORK AS I AM ONLY EMPLOYED IN THE SCHOOL VERY PART TIME AND WOULD NOT HAVE ACCESS TO MY WORK
EMAILS AT OTHER TIMES.
QUICK ACCESS TO REFERENCE MATERIALS
RAPID SOURCE OF INFORMATION, ESPECIALLY FROM RELIABLE SITES
REPLACES MOST OF THE TRADTIONAL RESOURCES LIKE BOOKS          AS IT IS EASIER AND QUICKER TO ACCESS AND IT IS
ELECTRONICALLY PROCESSABLE
RESEARCH FOR LESSON DEVELOPMENT ONLINE LESSON DELIVERY
RESEARCH FOR NEW INFORMATION, CURRENT ISSUES AND SOME OBSCURE INFORMATION CAN ONLY BE FOUND ON LINE.
RESERCH FOR STUDENTS, E-MAIL, ICT IDEAS, ITERACTIVE WHITEBOARD ON-LINE GAMES, DEPARTMENT PORTAL FOR WORK
INFORMATION, REPORTING AT HOME
RESOURCES ARE EXPANDING RAPIDLY. THE QUALITY AND QUANTITY IS IMPROVING MONTH BY MONTH. HELPS KEEP UP TO DATE.
RESOURCING GREAT FOR DIFFERENT LEARNING ABILITIES
SIS IS USED FOR STUDENT INFORMATION & REPORTING. ALSO, ADMIN TEND TO COMMUNICATE MAINLY BY SCHOOL E-MAIL.
SO MANY OF THE EMAILS I RECEIVE CONTAIN REFERENCE TO A WEBSITE LINK I NEED TO REFER TO FOR INFORMATION




                                     education.au 2008                                              Page 69 of 160
SO MANY OF THE TASKS AND REQUIREMENTS OF MY ROLE INVOLVE ONLINE FACILTITIES SUCH AS SIS DATA BASES AND REPORTING
TO PARENTS. I ALSO TEACH AND USE THE INTERNET TO ACCESS LESSONS FROM ANOTHER SITE FOR LANGUAGE TEACHNING AS
WELL AS USING THE SEARCH FACILITIES. I SIMPLY COULD NOT CARRY OUT MY ROLE WITHOUT THE USE OF TECHNOLOGY. ONE
CONCERN IS THE RATE AND DEGREE OF RELIANCE OF ICT BY THE EDUCATUION DEPARTMENT FOR ADMINISTRATORS. THEY EXPECT
A HIGH RATE OF UPTAKE OF NEW INITATIVES.
SO MANY RESOURCES AND INFORMATION ARE WEB BASED. MOST EMAILS I RECIVE HAVE A LINK TAHT NEEDS TO BE ACCESSED TO
AGIN FURTHER INFORMATION
STILL FIND USE OF BOOKS VERY USEFUL
STUDENTS ARE VERY RELIANT ON ACCESSING THE NET FOR THEIR RESEARCH. TO BE AWARE OF THE MATERIALS THEY ARE USING
IN THEIR RESEARCH AND ANY PLAGARISM THAT MAY RESULT.
SUCH A VARIETY OF TOOLS ETC
TEACHING HISTORY REQUIRES THAT I AM ABLE TO RESEARCH A WIDE RANGE OF SUBJECTS AND SITES - BEING ABLE TO USE THE
INTERNET RATHER THAN RELY SOLELY ON BOOKS ETC HAS MEANT THAT I AM ABLE TO DEEPEN MY OWN KNOWLEDGE BASE AND
ALSO PROVIDE STUDENTS WITH A GREATER RANGE OF RESOURCES.
THE EASE OF ACCESSING INFORMATION ON THE INTERNET FAR OUT DOES ANY OTHER MEANS OF RESEARCH
THE GEOGRAPHICAL ISOLATION OF OUR WORKSITE MEANS THAT MANY OF THE RESOURCES AND EXPERTISE ARE MORE READILY
AVAILABLE ON-LINE. AS TIME IS GOING BY, THE INTERNET IS BECOMING EVEN MORE ACCESSIBLE TO BOTH MY STUDENTS AND I AND
ON-LINE CONTENT MORE INTERESTING AND RELEVANT.
THE INTERNET ALLOWS ME TO ACCESS ACTIVITIES WHICH ENHANCE THE LEARNING ENVIRONMENT FOR MY STUDENTS AND MEETS
THEIR NEEDS IN TODAY'S TECHNOLOGICAL AND FAST MOVING WORLD.
THE INTERNET ALLOWS ME TO ACCESS CURRENT IDEAS/ RESOURCES/RESEARCH EXTREMELY QUICKLY WITHOUT WAITING FOR
BOOKS TO ARRIVE, REPS TO SEE ETC. IT ALSO ALLOWS YOU TO LINK "THINKING PATTERNS" ON TOPICS EASILY.
THE INTERNET CAN PROVIDE ME WITH QUICK; ANSWERS, SUPPORT MATERIALS, FURTHER INFORMATION ON TOPICS AND KEEPS ME
IN TOUCH WITH THE EDU DPT.
THE INTERNET IS A GREAT WAY TO SHARE INFORMATION AND TO ACQUIRE INFORMATION. IT IS ALSO A TERRIFIC WAY TO TEACH AND
MAINTAIN CONTACT WITH STUDENTS AS LONG AS THEY HAVE ACCESS TO THE INTERNET AND THE BANDWIDTH.
THE INTERNET IS IMPORTANT TO ME TO CORRESPOND WITH COLLEAGUES IN MY SPECIALIST TEACHING AREA WHICH IS AS A LOTE
TEACHER. AS I AM THE ONLY ONE IN THE SCHOOL IT IS DIFFICULT TO DISCUSS OR GET OPINIONS FROM OTHERS. I WOULD LIKE TO
INCORPORATE IT INTO THE LANGUAGE CLASSROOM BUT I DO NOT HAVE THE EXPERTISE NOR IS TRAINING OFFERED THROUGH THE
EDUCATION DEPARTMENT.
THE INTERNET IS ONLY ONE TOOL AVAILABLE TO SUPPORT MY PROGRAM AND INFORMATION IS NOT ALWAYS VALID OR RELIABLE.
THE INTERNET MAKES RESEARCHING CLASSROOM ACTIVITIES EASIER
THE LARGE QUANTITY OF UP TO DATE AND EASY TO FIND TEACHING RESOURCES/IDEAS MAKE STHE INTERNET MOST VALUABLE.
ALSO IT'S EAY ACCESSABILITY
THE MOST CURRENT RESOURCES/CONTENT IS AVAILABLE.
THE WORLD IS AT YOUR FINGERTIPS IN THE COMFORT OF YOUR HOME. DON'T GET TIME AT WORK TO USE THE INTERNET
THERE ARE MANY ALTERNATIVES.... ITS IMPORTANCE IS THE FACT THAT IT IS THE PLACE MANY STUDENTS 'LIVE'
THERE ARE MANY RESOURCES AVAILABLE ONLINE MADE BY TEACHERS FROM OTHER STATES IN AUS AND IN UK WHICH ARE REALLY
USEFUL. OUR SCHOOL IS INTRODUCING INTERACTIVE WHITEBOARDS AND I AM GETTING ONE NEXT TERM. THERE ARE MANY SITES,
PARTICULARLY FROM THE UK, WHICH CAN INCREASE MY KNOWLEDGE OF THEIR USE AND WHICH INCLUDE GREAT ACTIVITIES THAT I
CAN USE IN MY CLASS WITH MY YEAR 4/5 STUDENTS.
THERE ARE SO MANY GREAT IDEAS OUT THERE AND THEY CAN BE EASILY ACCESSED
THERE IS AN INCREASING NEED TO HAVE ACCESS TO TECHNOLOGY.
THERE IS VERY LITTLE AVAILABLE THAT CANNOT BE DONE WITH A BETTER FOCUS, MORE CHEAPLY AND FASTER, BY ACCESSING
BOOKS, SHARING WITH COLLEAGUES, AND PREPARING ONESELF.
THIS SMALL COMMUNITY CANNOT PROVIDE STUDENT ACCESS TO THE MANY AND VARIED SOURCES THAT THE INTERNET CAN.
TIME FACTOR IN SUPPORTING STAFF IN REGIONAL AND REMOTE LOCATIONS
TIME IS AN ISSUE. IF THERE WAS MORE I WOULD USE IT FAR MORE OFTEN
TO KEEP UP TO DATE WITH CURRENT INFORMATION RESEARCH IS DONE AT HOME, NOT IN THE SCHOOL
TO KEEP UP WITH THE STUDENTS. TO REMAIN INFORMED. TO MOTIVATE STUDENTS. TO PROVIDE WORK/INFORMATION WITHOUT
HAVING TO REINVENT THE WHEEL
UNLIMITED RESOURCES, ONLINE LEARNING, APPEAL TO STUDENTS, CURRENT AND VISUAL, SOURCE OF INFORMATION
UP TO DATE RESEARCH, NETWORKING, PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT ESSENTIAL.




                                     education.au 2008                                               Page 70 of 160
USE IDEAS AND RESOURCES SOURCED OFF THE NET AND ADAPTED TO SUIT MY LEASSON AND CLASS.
USE INTERNET AS A MEANS OF GLOBAL COMMUNICATION
USE IT AS A REFERENCE BAS E FOR PROGRAMS
USE IT MANY TIMES DURING THE DAY FOR RESEARCH, E-MAIL, PROFFESSIONAL DEVLOPEMENT
USE IT REGULARLY TO FIND LESSONS, INFO, PICTURES
USED FOR COMMUNICATION BETWEEN STAFF. ACCESS TO IDEAS AND RESOURCES ON THE INTERNET. USED TO MAKE RESOURCES
FOR THE STUDENTS. TIME SAVER WHEN MAKING RESOURCES.
USED REGULARLY FOR COMMUNICATION, LESSONS, AND RESEARCH.
USEFUL FOR RESOURCES QUICK ACCESS TO INFORMATION
WE ALLL USE IT FOR STUDENT WORK, AND IN THE OFFICE. COULDN'T LOOK ANYTHING UP OR ACCESS DATA WITHOUT IT.
WE ARE ABLE TO ACCESS CURRENT CURRICULUM AND SYLLABUS DOCUMENTS. ACCESSIBLE. CHEAPER THAN GOING OUT AND
BUYING RESOURCES
WE LIVE IN THE DIGITAL AGE IAND IT IS EXPANDING AT A RATE THAT EDUCATORS NEED TO KEEP UP WITH. PARENTS AND STUDENTS
EXPECT TO BE PART OF THE DIGIAL REVOLUTION.
WE NEED SO MUCH BROAD INFORMATION IN TEACHING THAT IT IS INVALUABLE TO HAVE THE INTERNET TO ASK OR LOOK FOR
CERTAIN REQUIREMENTS.
WE RARELY USE BOOKS FOR RESEARCH. WE SOURCE INFORMATION, IMAGES, SOUNDS AND VIDEO ROUTINELY ON THE INTERNET.
WE USE THE INTERNET TO CONDUCT ON-LINE LESSONS WITH THE STUDENTS AND TO KEEP IN DAILY CONTACT WITH OUR STUDENTS
VIA E-MAIL ETC.
WHEN I AM CREATING WORKSHEETS, I OFTEN HAVE TWO OF THREE WEB PAGES OPEN IN THE BACKGROUND - ONE FOR CLIPART,
ONE OR TWO FOR CONTENT, IDEAS, RESOURCES. IT IS IMPOSSIBLE FOR ME TO KNOW EVERYTHING ABOUT EVERY LEARNING AREA -
ESPECIALLY SCIENCE AND SOCIAL STUDIES - THAT UP TO THE MINUTE INFORMATION IS EXTREMELY VALUABLE.
WHEN I NEED INFO I USUALLY NEED IT QUICKLY.
WHEN SOMETHING DOES NOT WORK, HOW MANY TIMES DO YOU PUT UP WITH THE NONSENSE BEFORE YOU GO BACK TO CHALK AND
TALK AND WORKSHEETS?? I HAVE LOST COUNT THE NUMBER OF TIMES THE NETWORK DOES NOT WORK FOR ME. IT WOULD A HUGE
NUMBER OF HOURS THAT I PERSONALLY HAVE WASTED.
WIDE RANGE OF INFORMATION AVAILABLE, COMMUNICATION FROM ADMINISTRATION, EXCELLENT WEBSITES FOR CHILDREN
WITHOUT THE USE OF THE INTERNET I WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO COMPLETE ADMINISTRATION DUTIES. I RELY ON IT TO RECEIVE AND
DISTRIBUTE INFORMATION TO STAFF AND COLLEAGUES.
YEAR 7 STUDENTS NEED LOTS OF STIMULUS AND OUR LIBRARY IS VERY POOR IN CONTENT


I live outside Australia
INDISPENSABLE



Q14.                  Would you like to comment on your use of ICT?

ACT
APART FROM INTERACTION WITH COLLEAGUES AND STAFF IN THE UNIT, I MAINLY EXPLORE DIFFERENT WAYS OF USING ICT TO
DELIVER NEW/ENHANCED SERVICES TO UNIVERSITY STAFF AND STUDENTS.



NSW
A MAJOR PART OF MY WORKING LIFE FOR OVER 20 YEARS. I AM OPEN TO NEW TECHNOLOGIES, APPLICATIONS.
ALTHOUGH I FIND IT DAUNTING AT TIMES TO KEEP UP WITH WHAT'S NEW I GENERALLY GET CONFIDENCE RELATIVELY QUICKLY ONCE I
GET INTO IT (ESP. IF SOMEONE EXPLAINS AND SHOWS IT TO ME).
ALTHOUGH KEEN TO USE ICT I HAVE FOUND THAT IT CAN BE BOTH A BOON AND A HAZARD. I AM KEEN TO USE WEB BASED
RESOURCES AS A BACK UP OR COMPLEMENTARY RESOURCE FOR STUDENTS. STRANGELY SOME STUDENTS DO NOT TAKE
ADVANTAGE OF THE RESOURCES AVAILABLE ON WEBVISTA. I AM KEEN TO IMPROVE MY TEACHING BUT FEEL ICT IS BUT ONE PART OF
THE CORRECT STRATEGY. I NEED TO IMPROVE THE LECTURES TO MAKE THEM MORE INTERESTING BUT THIS INVOLVES MUCH MORE
THAN JUST USING ICT. I'VE TAKEN TO INCLUDING SHORT QUIZES, SMALL VID




                                      education.au 2008                                               Page 71 of 160
ALWAYS KEEPING UP WITH INNOVATIONS AS THEY PERTAIN TO MY TEACHING, RESEARCH AND SERVICE ROLES
AM TRYING TO USE MORE INNOVATIVE TEACHING STRATEGIES USING WIKIS AND DELICIOUS ETC.
AS A TUTOR I CAN ONLY USE ICT FEATURES THAT THE LECTURERS ALLOW ME TO ACCESS - BUT I AM COMPETENT IN THE FEATURES I
AM USING.
AS ADMINISTRATOR FOR SEVERAL VERY LARGE CLASSES COULD NOT FUNCTION WITHOUT ICT. GETTING LATEST RELEVANT
JOURNAL ARTICLES DIRECT TO OFFICE IS BIG PLUS.
BEING FORCED AWAY FROM PERSONAL CONTACT WITH STUDENTS SUKS
CONSTANTLY DEVELOPING!
CONTINUALLY FRUSTRATED BY THE LACK OF UNIVERSITY FUNDING PROVIDED TO THE LIBRARY TO PROVIDE THIS VITAL SERVICE
THAT STUDENTS RELY ON.
CROSS-CULTURAL AND BORDER USAGE CREATING NEW DIALOGIC ENVIRONMENTS
ESSENTIAL TO MY WORK AND ROLE. NOT A CONFIDENT USER. MOSTLY SELF TAUGHT.
EXPERIENCE OVER A NUMBER OF YEARS HAS HELPED ME TO BECOME MORE PROFICIENT
HAVE BEEN DESIGNING ONLINE ASSESSMENT TOOLS
HAVE TAUGHT IT COURSES IN JUNIOR & SENIOR SECONDARY SCHOOL
I AM ALWAYS TRYING TO PUSH MY OWN AND MY STUDENTS EXPERIENTIAL BOUNDARIES BUT NOT SO FAR THAT THE LEARNING
OUTCOME WILL BE A NEGATIVE ONE. KEEP IT AS SIMPLE AND RELEVANT AS POSSIBLE BUT MAKE THE MOST OF THE TOOLS WE HAVE
THE OPPORTUNITY TO USE.
I AM AWARE THAT THERE ARE MANY NEW TECHNOLOGIES AVAILABLE, BUT DON'T HAVE THE PERCEIVED TIME TO PRACTISE THEIR
USE (EG ELLUMINATE). IN ADDITION I OFTEN FEEL THAT MY ICT USE IS NOT VERY EFFICINT .
I AM EXPERIMENTING WITH VARIOUS WAYS TO USE ICT TO TEACH ARCHAEOLOGY / GIVE STUDENTS ACCESS TO ARCHAEOLOGICAL
SITES AND FINDS, AND FACILITATE THEIR INTERPRETATION.
I AM SOMEWHAT OVERWHELMED BY THE SPEED OF DEVELOPMENTS IN INTERACTIVE SOFTWARE AND FACILITIES, AND IN MAKING
INFORMED CHOICES AS TO AN APPROPRIATE ALLOCATION OF MY TIME AND ENERGY IN EXPLORING DIFFERENT AVENUES FOR
TEACHING, LEARNING AND RESEARCHING.
I AM TRYING ALMOST EVERYTHING I CAN ACCESS
I AM VERY COMFORTABLE WITH MANY OF THE TECHNOLOGIES, BLACKBOARD, MP3 VOICE RECORDING, USING SEARCH ENGINES AND
DATABASES, BUT WOULD LOVE MORE KNOWLEDGE ON THE WIDER TECHNOLOGIES, FOR EG I DON'T KNOW HOW TO SKYPE, AND
HAVE NO IDEA HOW TO USE SOME OF THE SOFTWARE FOR EDITING MP3 ETC.
I AM VERY HAPPY USING IT, AND HAVE FOR A LONG TIME, PROMOTING ITS USE, BUT TAKES TIME TO LEARN AND EVALUATE THE NEW
TECHNIQUES (E.G. ELLUMINATE, BLOGS AND WIKIS) EFFECTIVELY, AND TIME IS HARD TO FIND WHEN I ALSO HAVE TO KEEP ABREAST
OF THE SUBJECT AREA, AND CONDUCT ORIGINAL WORK.
I BOTH USE ICT AND I DEVELOP APPLICATIONS TO SUPPORT TEACHING AND ASSESSMENT.
I DON'T HAVE ENOUGH TIME TO SIT AND DEVELOP ONLINE SKILLS
I DON'T USE WEB VISTA. COMPUTER SURVEYS SHOW THAT FEW STUDENTS ACTUALLY USE THE RESOURCES POSTED. I WANT
INTERACTION IN THE CLASSROOM. I BELIEVE THERE IS NO SUBSTITUTE FOR PERSONAL CONTACT & COMMUNICATION. I USE POWER
POINT FOR KEY POINTS OF LECTURES & TO SHOW IMAGES. IF WE DON'T GRAB STUDENTS' ATTENTION IN THE LECTURE THEATRE,
WE DON'T HAVE MUCH CHANCE OF THEM LISTENING TO LECTURES ON TAPE OR RETRIEVING MATERIAL FROM THE CLASS WEB SITE.
I FEEL THAT I AM NOT USING ICT ADEQUATELY TO SUPPORT OUR STUDENTS. I AM CURRENTLY SEEKING MORE TRAINING AND ADVICE
ON HOW TO PROVIDE MORE RESOURCES ONLINE AND TO HAVE OUR ONLINE RESOURCES IMPROVED TO MEET CLIENT
EXPECTATIONS.
I FIND THE USE OF TECHNOLOGY CHALLENGING BUT IT OPENS UP SO MANY OPPORTUNITIES TO ENGAGE STUDENTS IN THEIR
LEARNING
I HAVE A VERY OPEN MIND TO WHAT CAN BE A LESSON RESOURCE AND HOW A PLAY ENVIRONMENT CAN LEAD TO LEARNING
OUTCOME.
I HAVE BEEN TRIALLING DIFFERENT USES OF ICT FOR TEACHING, STAFF MEETINGS, STAFF/STUDENT SEMINARS ETC. IN AN EFFORT
TO REACH STUDENTS IN WAYS THAT THEY FIND CONVENIENT AND USEFUL AND TO IMPROVE STAFF EFFICIENCY AND
EFFECTIVENESS. IT ALSO ALLOWS US TO MANAGE GEOGRAPHICALLY DIVERSE STAFF AND STUDENTS THAT WE COULD NOT HAVE
MANAGED AS EFFECTIVELY BEFORE (EG REDUCE NEED FOR TRAVEL).
I HAVE PIONEERED THE USE OF TECHNOLOGY-ASSISTED FLEXIBLE AND CONVERGED DELIVERY AT MY UNIVERSITY
I LIKE TO STRETCH THE PROGRAMS SO THEY DO WHAT SUITS MY TEACHING STYLE. I NOW USE ONLINE TEACHING TOOLS TO CREATE
(AND EDIT) A MAGAZINE WITH MY STUDENTS AS A COLLABORATIVE EXERCISE.
I LOOK FOR INNOVATIVE WAYS TO USE ICT FOR EDUCATION AND IT IS PART OF MY JOB ROLE.




                                      education.au 2008                                               Page 72 of 160
I MAKE CONSIDERABLE USE OF ICT IN TEACHING BUT ALSO USE TRADITIONAL METHODS, AND HAVE NOT REALLY INNOVATED IN THE
USE OF ICT
I NEED TO WORK HARDER AT LEARNING HOW TO USE IT
I SPECIALISE IN ASYNCHRONOUS LEARNING AND TEACHING
I STRIVE TO KEEP UP TO DATE KEEPING MY COURSE MATERIAL RELEVANT. I FIND THAT THIS IS NOT WELL AS WELL VALUED AS IT
COULD BE WITHIN MY INSTITUTION IE LITTLE ACKNOWLEDGMENT IN MY WORKLOAD DOC.
I TEACH COURSES IN MATHEMATICAL COMPUTING SO IN ADDITION TO GENERIC USES OF ICT I HAVE A STRONG INTEREST IN
TECHNICAL MATTERS, ESPECIALLY PROGRAMMING LANGUAGES AND SOFTWARE DEVELOPMENT.
I THINK I SHOULD BE DOING MORE TO ENCOURAGE STUDENT USE OF DISCUSSION TOOLS
I USE ELLUMINATE LIVE SESSIONS AS WELL AS ONLINE DISCUSSION FORUMS. AS ASSESSMENT HAVE USED BLOGS AND VIRTUAL
FIELD TRIPS. I RECORD MY VIDEOCONFERENCE AND POWERPOINT SESSIONS AND MAKE THEM AVAILABLE IN BLACKBOARD FOR
EXTERNAL STUDENTS.
I WILL SHORTLY BE ATTENDING SOME TRAINING COURSES ON VISTA, WITH A VIEW TO LEARNING NEW WAYS TO INCORPORATE THIS
TECHNOLOGY INTO MY TEACHING
I WOULD LIKE TO MAKE MORE USE OF ICT IN MY TEACHING BUT FIND IT DIFFICULT TO ACQUIRE THE NECESSARY SKILLS. ONLY
LIMITED TRAINING AND TECHNICAL SUPPORT IS AVAILABLE AT THE UNIVERSITY OF NEW SOUTH WALES.
I WOULD LIKE TO MOVE TO TRANSFORMING, BUT NOT THERE YET
ICT IS A COMPETENCY REQUIRED OF ALL OF US THESE DAYS. IT ISN'T A FRILL, BUT A WORKING TOOL. CHALLENGE IS KEEPING UP
WITH CONSTANTLY CHANGING TECHNOLOGY.
INCREASINGLY IT IS BECOMING AN ESSENTIAL COMMUNICATIONS TOOL FOR ALL ASPECTS OF ACADEMIC LIFE.
INSUFFICIENT SUPPORT/RESOURCES TO DEVELOP FURTHER
IT ALLOWS ME TO KEEP IN TOUCH WITH STUDENTS OUTSIDE OF THE CLASSROOM, THEY APPRECIATE AND I KEEP BETTER TABS ON
THEIR PROGRESS. IT ENCOURAGES THEM TO APPROACH ME IN CLASS AS WELL BECAUSE THEY KNOW I CAN BE CONTACTABLE
OUTSIDE OF CLASS TIMES USING TECHNOLOGIES THEY ARE USED TO
IT IS EXCELLENT IN INCREASING THE TRANSPARENCY OF OUR DELIVERY PROCESS (USING RECORDINGS FOR PD), THE FLEXIBILITY
AFFORDED STUDENTS TO REVIEW MATERIALS AND CONTRIBUTE AND SHARE ASSESSMENT IN THEIR OWN TIME AND ALLOW MORE
FLEXIBLE DELIVERY AND LEARNING OPTIONS - NOT SUITABLE OR NECESSARY FOR ALL SUBJECTS/COURSES.
MY PRIMARY ROLE IS TO SUPPORT AND ENCOURAGE INNOVATION IN LEARNING AND TEACHING IN A UNIVERSITY FACULTY. EFFECTIVE
US OF ICT IS CENTRAL TO THIS.
MY ROLE IS MORE ABOUT SUPPORTING AND ENCOURAGING TEACHING STAFF THAT WISH TO TRANSFORM THEIR PRACTICE
N/A
NO
NONE
ONLINE STUDNETS LEARNING, DISCUSSION BOARDS
ONLY REASON DID NOT SAY PROFICIENT IS THAT THERE ARE OTHER WAYS TO USE ICT OF WHICH I AM AWARE BUT HAVE SIMPLY NOT
HAD THE TIME TO LEARN THE STEPS TO THEIR USE.
PROBABLY COULD USE IT MORE
RELIANT ON USE OF BLACKBOARD FOR EXTENDED GROUP DISCUSSIONS MY GROUPS ALSO COMMUNICATE VIA MYSPACE, FACEBOOK
AND INSIDE 2ND LIFE
TEND TO BE PUSHING THE BARRIERS - GETTING PEOPLE TO USE STUFF MORE EFFICIENTLY AND MORE CREATIVELY THAN THE
TECHNOLOGIES ARE DESIGNED TO OPERATE, AND CERTAINLY EXTENDING THE WAYS PEOPLE ARE TRAINED (BRAINWASHED) INTO
USING THEM.
THE ABILITY TO INCLUDE VIDEOS IN MY DISTANCE CLASSROOMS IS STILL DIFFICULT.
THE COURSE MATERIAL FOR MY CLASS IS AVAILABLE ON-LINE (VISTA) ALONG WITH USEFUL ADMINISTRATIVE AND ADDITIONAL
INFORMATION FOR THE STUDENTS. IN CLASS HOWEVER, THE TEACHING IS FAIRLY TRADITIONAL, WITH USE OF BLACKBOARDS,
OVERHEAD-PROJECTORS, AND OCCASIONAL COMPUTER PROJECTION. IN MY RESEARCH WORK, I ALMOST EXCLUSIVELY USE MY
LAPTOP AND THE INTERNET, MOSTLY FROM HOME.
THE USE OF ONLINE ASSESSMENT AND LEARNING TOOLS THAT I HAVE EMBEDDED IN MY UNIT HAVE REDUCED STUDENT ATTRITION
AND ARE TRANSFORMING UNIVERSITY PRACTICE. FOR THIS I RECEIVED THE VC AWARD FOR TEACHING EXCELLENCE.
THERE ARE HIGH EXPECTATIONS ACROSS OUR INSTITUTIONS FOR USING ICT; HOWEVER TO BE PROFICIENT WE'D EITHER NEED TO BE
GOING ON COURSES 3 DAYS A WEEK OR JUST SPENDING FAR TOO MANY HOURS IN SELF-EDUCATION.
THERE IS A CONSTANT DEMAND TO BECOME FAMILIAR WITH EMERGING TECHNOLOGIES - FEEL I CAN'T KEEP UP!
TIME IS THE MAIN ISSUE.




                                       education.au 2008                                             Page 73 of 160
TRYING TO REFLECT CHANGING ICT PRACTICES WITHIN SUBJECT AREA (HOSPITALITY) ORGANISATIONS
USE IT A LOT TO EXCHANGE WITH STUDENTS, TO MAKE DOCUMENTS ACCESSIBLE TO THEM OR TO COLLECT INFORMATION FROM
THEM. NOT REALLY ENGAGED IN ASSESSMENTS ONLINE SO FAR.
USING BLACKBOARD MORE AS EDUCATIONAL RESOURCE
USING THE INTERNET FOR TEACHING PURPOSES MAY WELL BE VERY EFFECTIVE, BUT IT IS VERY TIME CONSUMING FOR THE
INSTRUCTOR.
USING THIS TECHNOLOGY CREATES A VIRTUAL CLASSROOM FOR DISTANCE STUDENTS. THIS REDUCES THE ISOLATIONA AND
REMOTENESS THAT MANY FEEL.
WITH COLLEAGUES I PUBLISH AND REVIEW WORKS ON INTERNET USAGE
WORKING IN SUPPORTING DISTANCE EDUCATION USING EMERGENT INTERACTIVE TECHNOLOGIES ..AND TRAINING TEACHERS TO USE
THEM AND TRANSFORM THEIR PEDAGOGICAL PRACTICES TO WORK EFFECTIVELY DELIVERED IN AN ONLINE INTERACTIVE CONTEXT.
WOULD LIKE BETTER SKILLS BUT DON'T REALLY AVE THE TIME TO DEVELOP THEM
YES, I HAVE EVOLVED BEYONE THE NORM. OOOOH AHHHHH.



NT
BEING FROM A REMOTE SCHOOL, I BELIEVE THAT IT IS ESSENTIAL WE BE PROVIDED WITH APPROPRIATE SERVICES, THAT WE TEACH
OUR STUDENTS HOW TO USE THE INTERNET, AND WE USE THOSE SERVIOCES TO THEIR FULLEST POSSIBILITIES. THIS HELP THE
STUDENTS NOT ONLY EDUCATIONALLY, BUT IT ALSO BREAKS DOWN THE BARRIERS OF DISTANCE.
DEVELOPING INTO ALL LEARNING AREAS
EXTREME FRUSTRATION WITH POOR OPERATING SYSTEM OF CLIENT COMPUTERS (WINDOWS), POOR BANDWIDTH & WIRELESS
ACCESS IN WORK SETTINGS. GENERAL IGNORANCE OF CONTEMPORARY ISSUES BY PEOPLE SETTING POLICY AND CONTROLLING
BUDGETS.
I ALWAYS TRY AND LEARN MORE SO THAT I CAN BECOME MORE PROFICIENT
I AM AWARE OF THE ENORMOUS VARIETY OF PROGRAMS AND POSSIBILITIES THAT ARE AVAILABLE BUT I DO NOT KNOW HOW TO USE
ALL OF THOSE PROGRAMS AND RESOURCES OF WHICH I AM AWARE AND I HAVE NOT USED MANY OF THESE IN MY TEACHING. FOR
EXAMPLE, THE TLF DIGITAL OBJECTS, MACROMEDIA SUITE, EXCEL, ACCESS.
I AM CURRENTLY DEVELOPING MY EXPERTISE IN USING A LEARNING MANAGEMENT SYSTEM AND HOPE TO BE ABLE TO USE THIS WITH
MY STUDENTS NEXT TERM. ICT IS A TOOL THAT CAN PROVIDE REAL-LIFE CONTEXTS IN WHICH LEARNING CAN BE EMBEDDED.
CONTENT CAN BE ABSORBED THROUGH A VISUALAND AUDITORY SENSES. SOME SPECIFIC NOTIONS CAN BE MORE CLEARLY
EXPLICATED WHEN USING INTERACTIVE MEDIA.
I AM CURRENTLY THE ICT TEACHER.
I AM KEEN TO EXPLORE NEW AVENUES, DISCOVER NEW DIMENSIONS FOR TEACHING AND LEARNING IT. I TAKE INITIATIVE TO TRAIN
STAFF, AND RUN AFTER SCHOOL SESSIONS FOR INTERESTED STUDENTS. I ENCOURAGE TEACHERS TO INTEGRATE ICT ACROSS
CURRICULUM AREAS. I AM KEEN TO DO MORE: CONSIDERING THE REMOTE LOCATION, I WOULD LIKE TO TRAIN STAFF AND SUPPORT
STUDENTS IN REMOTE AREAS TO DEVELOP THEIR SKILLS IN COMPUTING.
I AM VERY KNOWLEDGEABLE IN CERTAIN ASPECTS OF ICT AND NOT OTHERS. IT WOULD BE GOOD TO HAVE A SERIES OF 'UNITS' THAT
YOU COULD LOG INTO TO EXTEND YOUR OWN AREA OF INTEREST.
I COULD NOT IMAGINE GOING BACK TO WORKING/TEACHING WITHOUT ICT
I ENJOY TEACHING STUDENTS AND BEING CREATIVE BUT TEND TO BE BOGGED DOWN WITH TECHNICAL/TROUBLE SHOOTING STUFF.
I FOUND ICT EMPOWERING, ESPECIALLY WHEN USING IT WITH STUDENTS WHO HAD ACCESS AND PARTICIPATION ISSUES (EG
SEN/ESL STUDENTS)
I HAVE TAUGHT MULTIMEDIA AND DESKTOP PUBLISHING TO STUDENTS, AND PROVIDED PROFESSIONAL LEARNING TO OTHER
TEACHERS IN MANY ASPECTS OF ICT.
I TRY TO GET STUDENTS TO SEE COMPUTERS, PROGRAMS AND THE INTERNET AS TOOLS TO USE WHEN APPROPRIATE. RECENTLY
PURCHASED A DIGITAL MICROSCOPE STUDENTS CAPTIVATED BY IT. ALSO AS I'M NOT A MUSICIAN HAVE GOT A KEYBOARD (STILL TO
GET THE MIDI CABLE), USB DRUM KIT AND A MUSIC PROGRAM THAT STUDENTS ENJOY USING. SO WHILE THEY ARE INITALLY PLAYING
AND EXPLORING HOPE TO EXTEND IT SO THEY INTEGRATE IT IN THEIR SCHOOL WORK
I USE IT EVERYDAY, SHARING WITH TEACHERS WAYS TO SHORTCUT THEIR PREPARATION TIME, WAYS TO ENRICH THEIR CLASSROOM
PRACTICE AND ENGAGE STUDENTS
I USE TECHNOLOGY TO EXTEND THE STUDENTS USE TO BE A TOOL FOR LEARNING.
I USE, CREATE, DEVELOP ICT IN EVERDAY PRACTICE
I WENT TO UNIVERSITY YEARS AGO NOW TO LEARN HOW TO USE THE SOFTWARE AND THEN USED THAT IN MY TEACHING.




                                      education.au 2008                                              Page 74 of 160
ICT IS A MAJOR PART OF MY TEACHING/WORK I ENCOURAGE COLLEAGUES AND STUDENTS TO EXTEND THEIR SKILLS AND
KNOWLEDGE
ICT IS WHAT I DO. I CURRENTLY TEACH ICT AT A PRIMARY SCHOOL AND AM ALWAYS ON THE LOOKOUT FOR NEW AND EXCITING
THINGS. WE CURRENTLY USE PROGRAMS SUCH AS MS WORD, EXCEL, POWERPOINT, PHOTOSTORY, MOVIE MAKER AND
KIDSPIRATION. WE UTILISE OTHER FREEWARE/SHAREWARE APPLICATIONS SUCH AS GOOGLE EARTH, TUX PAINT, TUX TYPE AND
ARTRAGE. WE ALSO USE WEBSITES WITH GOOD INTERATIV LEARNING OBJECTS.
IN MY LEADERSHIP ROLE I USE ICTS TO ENGAGE TEACHERS WITH THE POSIBILITIES OF HOW TECHNOLOGY CAN BE USED IN THEIR
CLASSROOMS TO ENGAGE STUDENTS
IT HAS INCREASED DRAMATICALLY THIS YEAR WITH THE INSTALLATION OF AN INTERACTIVE WHITEBOARD IN MY CLASSROOM.
IT IS EVER CHANGING AND JUST AS YOU THINK YOU ARE COMPETENT THINGS CHANGE. I FIND IT TAKES A LOT OF TIME TO LEARN NEW
SOFTWARE/OPERATING SYSTEMS AND FIND I SKIM OVER THINGS. THIS IS OK WHEN EVERYTHING IS WORKING WELL. I DON'T THINK I
GET THE MOST OUT OF WHAT IS AVAILABLE...NEED 6 MONTHS OFF WORK TO UPDATE MY SKILLS.
MY ROLE IN THE SCHOOL IS MORE SUPPORT OF HARDWARE TO KEEP THE SYSTEM OPERATING
NEED TO LEARN MORE ABOUT TROUBLE SHOOTING
NOT ENOUGH TIME TO TEACH AND LEARN ICT
OUT IN THE REMOTE SCHOOLS WHERE I WORK WE ARE STUGGLING WITH POOR ICT SERVICES (BANDWITH, SLOW SPEED OF
DOWNLOADS, DROPOUTS, LIMITED COMPUTERS AND NO INTERACTIVE WHITEBOARDS, NO INTRANET SET UPS AT EITHER OF THE
SCHOOLS AND LIMITED ICT KNOWLEDGE BY ALL STAFF) KIDS ARE HANDICAPPED IN COMPARISON TO THEIR URBAN COUNTERPARTS
WHO HAVE TOP KNOWLEDGE AND FACILITIES
PREVIOUSLY WORKED WITHIN IT SERVICES AND WAS ASSISTING WITH TRANSFORMING PRACTICE OF CLASSROOM TEACHERS. AM
NOW BACK IN THE CLASSROOM ENCOURAGING AND ENGANING STUDENTS IN ICT
REASONABLY CREATIVE, OFTEN FRUSTRATED BY DEET BLOCKS AND OUTAGES.
RESEARCH BASED
TEACHING TEACHERS HOW TO IMPROVE THEIR SPECIALIST PE LESSONS IN THE PRIMARY SCHOOL HAS LIMITED USES FOR ICT, THE
COORDINATION OF CARNIVALS AND EVENTS FOR 10 - 19YR OLDS HAS LIMITED USES OF ICT. I DO USE IT WHEN RELEVANT.
PRESENTATIONS, VIDEO, MICROSOFT PRODUCER, PHOTO STORY, DIGITAL PHOTOS
THIS IS PART OF MY ACADEMIC SUPPORT ROLE, TO INNOVATE...
TO ENGAGE STUDENTS WITH OTHERS, WHEN I HAVE TRIED TO PARTICIPATE IN A TRAVEL BUDDIES PROJECT ETC THEY ARE ALWAYS
TAKEN WHICH IS A LITTLE FRUSTRATING. I REGULARLY TRY NEW ACTIVITIES THAT SUPPORT CONCEPTS BEING TAUGHT THAT EARLY
CHILDHOOD STUDENTS CAN ENGAGE IN. I REGULARLY SUPPORT STAFF MEMBERS AT SCHOOL AND OTHERS IN ALICE SO THEY
DEVELOP CONFIDENCE TO INCORPORATE ICT INTO THEIR TEACHING PROGRAM. IN ETOOL TERMS I AM PROBABLY
PROFICIENT(COMPREHENSIVE) - TRANSFORMING (EMERGING).
USE OF ICT INCREASES EVERY SCHOOL YEAR
WHEN THE SYSTEM IS FUNCTIONING, ICT IS USED ON A DAILY BASIS AS A REGULAR PART OF MY PROGRAM. DRAW BACK IS THE
EXTREMELY SLOW SPEED AND WAITING TIME FOR STUDENTS, FRUSTRATION AND OVER PUSHING OF BUTTONS OCCURS.
WISH I HAD MORE TIME TO EXPLORE
WITHIN MY SCHOOL MY ROLE IS TO PROGRESS TEACHER PEDAGOGY, DEVELOP AND IMPLEMENT TEACHER/STAFF PROFESSIONAL
LEARNING AND ENGAGE STUDENTS IN RELEVANT ONLINE AND DIGITAL LEARNING.
WORK AS A ICT TEACHING AND LEARNING CONSULTANT



QLD
ALL LEARNING MATERIALS ARE DELIVERED VIA CLASSROOM NETWORK
ALTHOUGH I HAVE BEEN INVOLVED WITH EDUCATION FOR MANY YEARS, THIS IS MY FIRST FULL-TIME ROLE AS A UNIVERSITY
TEACHER AND I AM MASTERING THE ICT TECHNOLOGY. SOME OF THE ONLINE ADMINISTRATIVE SYSTEMS ARE CUMBERSOME AND
TIME CONSUMING, BUT THE USE OF ICT FOR TEACHING AND LEARNING (E.G., IBRAINS) IS HELPFUL FOR STUDENTS, ESPECIALLY
DISTANCE STUDENTS.
ALWAYS MONITORING NEW APPLICATIONS TO SHARE WITH COLLEAGUES
AS REQUIRED TO GET THE JOB DONE. I AM PRE-INTERNET (AGED 50+) SO DO NOT ENGAGE WELL WITH ON-LINE LEARNING MYSELF -
I PREFER A BOOK AND A PEN AND PAPER. I AM HAPPY TO ENGAGE WITH STUDENTS AS INTERNET IS THEIR PREFERRED
COMMUNICATION METHOD.
AT THE MOMENT I USE ICT AS LEARNING SUPPORT AS I DON'T HAVE THE TIME TO SET UP THE ONLINE LEARNING SPACE I WOULD LIKE
BEAURACRACIES AND OUTDATED/IRRELEVENT POLICIES IMPACT ON INNOVATION USE OF ICT'S. ALSO INCREASING ACADEMIC
WORKLOADS MEAN THERE IS LESS TIME TO EXPERIMENT WITH TECHNOLOGY

CAN BE RESTRICTED IN EFFECTIVENESS BY INCOMPATIBLE EQUIPMENT LACK OF ACCESS TO EQUIPMENT BECAUSE OF COMPETING
DEMANDS ON RESOURCES IN TEACHING TIME. BREAKDOWNS IN EQUIPMENT OR SERVICE CAN BE DETRIMENTAL AND FRUSTRATING
COMMITMENT RATHER THAN LIP SERVICE BY MANAGEMENT TO THE ON GOING DEVELOPMENT OF RESOURCES
COMPLETED A NUMBER OF ICT TRAINING COURSES AND WITH EXPERIENCE USING THE COMPUTER HAVE DEVELOP INTO A
CONFIDENT USER.
DIFFICULT TO FIND TIME TO UP-SKILL OR ATTEND COURSES TO RAISE PROFICIENCY
ENGAGING STUDENTS BY REQUIRING THEM TO TAKE ON THE PROFESSIONAL ROLE OF AUDIT ASSISTANT WITHIN AN AUDIT TEAM TO
CONDUCT AN AUDIT. OFF-CAMPUS STUDENTS NEED TO COMMUNICATE WITH THEIR AUDIT TEAM ONLINE TO PERFORM THE
PRESCRIBED AUDIT TASKS. COMMUNICATION TOOLS ARE PROVIDED IN BLACKBOARD FOR THIS PURPOSE.
EXTERNAL STUDENT SUPPORT
HEAVILY USED FOR DELIVERY OF EDUCATIONAL RESOURCES TO STUDENTS.
I AM ALWAYS LOOKING AT HOW TO DELIVER IN A MORE EFFICENT AND ENGAGING MANNER/WAY. ONLINE, BLENDED DELIVERY MIXED
WITH SOME FACE-TO-FACE DELIVERY AS WELL AS USING INTERACTIVE TOOLS.
I AM COMFORTABLE WITH TECHNOLOGIES BUT AWARE OF THEIR LIMITATIONS AND THE LIMITATIONS OF STUDENTS USE OF THEM BUT
THINK THAT THEY HAVE ENORMOUS POTENTIAL
I AM CONFIDENT IN THE USE OF ICT, BUT I HAVEN'T MADE THE LINK WITH STUDENTS AND ICT YET.
I AM KEEN TO EXPLORE NEW WAYS OF ENGAGING STUDENTS AND BELIEVE THE INTERNET IS A GREAT TOOL.
I AM PROFICIENT BUT ALWAYS ROOM TO IMPROVE
I AM VERY PROFICIENT FOR MY CURRENT PURCHASING ROLE & AM REGULARLY IMPLEMENTING THE USE OF NEW ONLINE
TECHNOLOGIES IN MY WORKPLACE AS WELL AS TRAINING OTHERS TO IMPROVE THEIR SKILLS. UNFORTUNATELY THE QUALIFIERS
ADDED TO THE RESPONSE OPTIONS ABOVE DON'T SUIT MY CURRENT ROLE. I HAVE PREVIOUSLY WORKED AS AN ACADEMIC BUT AM
NOT IN THAT ROLE CURRENTLY.
I AM WILLING TO ATTEMPT USING TECHNOLOGY TO SUPPORT AND FOSTER INTERACTION AMONGST STUDENTS, ESPECIALLY
DISTANCE EDUCATION. I AM CONSIDERING USING SECONDLIFE, BUT I THINK AT THIS STAGE THAT THE SOFTWARE IS TOO COMPLEX
TO EXPECT ALL STUDENTS TO BE EQUALLY PROFICIENT, WHICH WOULD DETRACT FROM STDUENTS' LEARNING EXPERIENCES.
I BELIEVE THAT IT COULD BE USED TO A GREATER EXTENT AS I BECOME MORE PROFICIENT. ICT IS AN IMPORTANT PART OF
UNIVERSAL DESIGN WHICH SHOULD BE USED BY ALL EDUCATORS NOT JUST THOSE OF US WHO KNOW THAT WE WILL BE WORKING
WITH PEOPLE WITH A DISABILITY.
I COMPLETED A CERTIFICATE COURSE IN ONLINE COMPUTERS FOR TEACHERS.
I ENJOY USING ICT
I FEEL PROFICIENT IN UTILISING AND EXPLORING ICT
I FEEL SOMEWHAT INEPT BECAUSE I'M OLD AND SAGGY AND DON'T USE MSN OR FACEBOOK, BUT IN FACT I USE ICT IN EVERY ASPECT
OF LIFE AND TEACHING. I'M ALWAYS AWARE THAT THERE IS LOTS OF IMPROVEMENT TO BE MADE, BUT AM CREATIVE AND
CONNECTED IN AN OLD SAGGY KIND OF WAY.
I FEEL THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE EASE AND SPEED OF COMMUNICATION AND THE DELIVERY OF LEARNING RESOURCES HAS
ENHANCED THE LEARNING PROCESS AT ALL LEVELS. I HAVE BEEN EXCITED AND PRIVILEGED TO PLAY A PART IN INTRODUCING NEW
WAYS OF LEARNING AND RESEARCH TO STUDENTS. ALSO ICT HAS SPEEDED UP THE PURCHASING PROCESS TO ENABLE THE TIMELY
DELIVERY OF HARD COPY RESOURCES.
I FIND MYSELF AS BOTH AN EMERGENT AND A TRANSFORMING PRACTICE USER. I DO NOT CONSIDER MY KNOWLEDGE OF ICT TO BE
GOOD, AND YET I USE THE SYSTEMS AVAILABLE TO ME OFTEN IN NEW WAYS THAT OTHER MORE PROFICIENT STAFF ARE NOT GAME
TO DO. I MUST ADMIT THAT I AM ABLE TO DO THIS BECAUSE OF VERY GOOD ICT SUPPORT WITHIN THE FACULTY. THE NEW WAYS OF
DOING THIS WORK HAVE COME ABOUT BECAUSE OF THE MODE OF STUDENT STUDY - I HAVE MANY DISTANCE STUDENTS WHO ARE IN
A TECHNOLOGY AREA, AND WE USE PBL.
I FIND THE USE OF ICT HELPFUL FOR MY COLLEAGUES, MY STUDENTS AND I BECAUSE I CAN ACHIEVE RESULTS QUICKLY AND
WITHOUT TOO MANY PROBLEMS SUCH AS PIN NUMBERS AND COMPUTER CRASHES.
I HAVE CHOSEN 'TRANSFORMING PRACTICE' AS IT BEST DESCRIBES MY POSITION, BUT IT IS NOT A TRANSFORMATION, IT IS A
PROGRESSION. I USE THE LEARNING MANAGEMENT SYSTEM EXTENSIVELY AS AN ADDITIONAL MEANS OF COMMUNICATION WITH
STUDENTS.
I HAVE MY OWN WEBSITE & FORUMBOARD WHICH WORKS WELL BUT WOULD LIKE TO LEARN MORE ABOUT OTHER TOOLS.
I HAVE NOT USED FACE BOOK ETC, OR WIKIE OR BLOGS OR IPODS. I WOULD SAY IT IS MORE THROUGH LACK OF TIME THAN THE
ABILITY TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO USE THEM. THE COMPUTERS ARE SO SLOW AT WORK AS WELL.
I HAVE USED ICT FOR 30 YEARS.
I NEED PD
I NEED TO UP SKILL IN MY APPLICATION OF BLOGS/WIKIS ETC




                                        education.au 2008                                             Page 76 of 160
I THINK MOST EDUCATORS CANNOT AFFORD NOT TO USE ICT IN THIS DAY AND AGE.
I TRY TO MONITOR ICTS THAT ARE EMERGING AND EVALUATE THEM FOR POTENTIAL IN IMPROVING METHODS OF COMMUNICATION
WITH STUDENTS (BOTH SYNCHRONOUS AND ASYNCHRONOUS). I AM AN EARLY ADOPTER OF SOME OF THE TECHNOLOGY THAT CAN
BE USED IN LEARNING AND TEACHING.
I USE COMPUTERS EVERY DAY AND HAVE ACHIEVED A VARIETY OF INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY QUALIFICATIONS UP TO DIPLOMA
LEVEL ALTHOUGH I DON'T USE ANYWHERE NEAR THE INFORMATION I HAVE ACQUIRED THROUGH THESE STUDIES.
I USE SPELL CHECKERS - SEE QUESTION 13. ICT'S ARE VERY USEFUL FOR EXTERNAL LEARNERS BUT ARE NOT CONSIDERED
ESSENTIAL IN SMALLER CLASSES AND SUFFER FROM THE SAME PROBLEMS OF OVERLY LARGE FACE 2 FACE COURSES (SUBJECTS).
I WISH I NEW MORE ABOUT SOME OF THE MULTIMEDIA APPLICATIONS. AND A LOT OF THE LEARNING SEEMS TO BE THROUGH TRIAL
AND ERROR.
I WOULD LEARN TO BE PROFICIENT IF IT WAS REQUIRED IN MY ROLE.
I WOULD LIKE TO BE TRANSFORMING BUT NEED TO FIND TIME OR FIND RESOURCES TO ASSIST ME TO UNDERSTAND HOW TO BE
TRANSFORMING. I AM NOT AFRAID TO USE IT...JUST NEED THE TIME TO EXPLORE.
I WOULD LIKE TO SEE LESS RELIANCE ON THEM IN THE UNI SETTING AS THE "WHIZ BANGERY" SOMETIMES DETRACTS FROM THE
CORE MESSAGE.
I WOULD USE IT MORE IF APPROPRIATE OFF-LINE TEACHING TIME WAS ALLOCATED FOR THE PURPOSES OF DEVLOPING SKILLS AND
MATERIALS.
I WOULD USE IT MORE IF I HAD THE TIME IN MY WORKLOAD TO BE MORE INNOVATIVE. AT THE MOMENT CAN'T KEEP UP WITH
PRESENT DEMANDS ON TIME TO LOOK AT BECOMING MORE PROFICIENT IN NEW AREAS
ICT IS INTEGRAL PART OF SOCIETY INCLUDING SOCIAL AND PROFESSIONAL (INCLUDING EDUCATIONAL) COMMUNICATION.
ICT IS INTREGAL TO ME WORK IN BUILDING CAPABILITY TO EMBRACE EDUCATIONAL TECHNOLOGIES IN LEARNING
ICT IS THE LIFEBLOOD OF MY WORK. IT STANDS OUT AS THE SINGLE BIGGEST OPPORTUNITY TO IMPROVE EDUCATIONAL OUTCOMES
AND ALLOW FLEXIBILITY IN LEARNING AND TEACHING.
ICTS ARE BECOMING THE CORNERSTONE OF MY WORK. WITHOUT ACCESS TO THE INTERNET AND COMMUNICAITON TECHNOLOGIES I
CANNOT PERFORM MY JOB.
IF USED PROPERLY, WITH APPROPRIATE MODIFICATION AND ADAPTATION TO ONE'S TEACHING TECHNIQUES, IT CAN GIVE STUDENTS
A BETTER LEARNING EXPERIENCE THAN CONVENTIONAL FACE-TO-FACE.
IN MOST CASES, I AM SELF TAUGHT
IN TODAYS WORLD OF CONSTANTLY SEEKING THE BEST, COMPUTER TECHNOLOGY IS IN A CONSTANT STATE OF DEVELOPEMENTAL
FLUX, WHAT I LEARN TODAY CAN SOMETIMES BE OUT OF DATE TOMMOROW. FOR A WORK PLACE ENVIRONMENT THIS MEANS I HAVE
TO CONSTANTLY BE LEARNING AND RESEARCHING NEW TECHNOLOGIES, WITHOUT THE INTERNET I WOULD NOT BE ABLE TO DO THIS
JOB, INFACT WITH OUT THE INTERNET, I CANT SEE MANY TECHNOLOGICAL JOBS BEING WELL MAINTAINED, IF EVEN POSSIBLE.
IT COULD ALWASY IMPROVE AS THERE ARE ALWAYS MORE AND MORE EMERGING TECHNOLOGIES THAT AREN'T ALWAYS THE EASIEST
TO USE OR PICK UP AND RUN WITH WITHOUT SOME EXPLORATION TIME NEEDED AND TIME IS OF AN ESSENCE, NEVER ENOUGH TIME
TO DEVELOP NEW SKILLS
IT COULD ALWAYS GET BETTER BUT THERE IS NEVER ENOUGH TIME TO REALLY EXPLORE ALL THE NEW TECHNOLOGIES AROUND SO I
TEND TO GO WITH THE ONES THAT I KNOW WELL AND WORK WHEN I FIRST USE THEM. IF IT REQUIRES A FAIR BIT OF FIDDLING TO
WORK THEN I DROP IT
IT IS AN ONGOING PROCESS - MAINLY SELF TAUGHT
LEARNING MORE EVERY DAY
LIMITED, STILL DEVELOPING
LOVE IT!
LOVE IT, BUT NEEDS TO SUPPORT EFFECTIVE COMMUNICATION, AND HAS A TENDENCY TO BE OVERUSED BY PEOPLE NEW TO IT
BECAUSE OF THE 'FUN WITH GADGETS' ASPECT.
MY SELF CONCEPT IS VERY HIGH - HOWEVER I ALSO APPRECIATE AND RELY HEAVILY ON ICT BACKUP FROM HIGHLY QUALIFIED "HELP
DESK" STAFF IN BOTH MY JOBS.
NA
NEED TO HAVE MUCH MORE BANDWIDTH AND ENGAGE HIGHER END APPLICATIONS FOR REAL-TIME AND VIRTUAL WORK
NEW TOOL TO ASSIST IN HELPING STUDENTS TO LEARN. AS STUDENTS ARE QUITE TECHNOLIGICALLY SAVVY TODAY, IT IS A GOOD
WAY TO CONNECT WITH THEM WHEREVER THEY MAY BE
NIL
NO

NOT HAD THE OPPORTUNITY AS TEACHING LOAD DURING WORK TIME FULLY ALLOCATED, NOT ENOUGH SIGNAL AT MY HOME TO
EXPLORE THERE, AND HOME LIFE AN IMPORTANT LURE AWAY AFTER TEN HOURS AT WORK.
NOT REALLY USEFUL FOR MY JOB AT THE MOMENT ...TEACHING LITERACY TO NON LITERATE REFUGEES. I MAINLY USE IT FOR EMAIL
PURPOSES
ONLY THAT IT IS INVALUABLE TO ENGAGING WITH THE DEMOGRAPHIC OF MY STUDENTS (18-25 YO). SKYPE, MESSENGER,
DELICIOUS, FACEBOOK ETC. ALLOW ME TO ENGAGE IN THEIR SPACE, AS WELL AS THE TRADITIONAL LMS LIKE BLACKBOARD.
PART OF THE USE IS TO HAVE ENOUGH ACCESS FOR MY STUDENTS WHO ALSO ARE LEARNING TO USE THE TECHNOLOGY.
PLEASE NOT THE SPELLING OF ENGAGING IN THE ANSWERS ABOVE.
PROVIDED THAT TAFE HAS PURCHASED ACCESS THIS SPEEDS UP PRODUCTION A REQUEST NEEDS TO SUPPLY NECESSARY
APPROVALS
SECOND GENERATIONS TOOLS HAVE BEEN VERY HELPFULL
SELF TAUGHT, BUT WOULD LIKE TO ACCESS MORE SUITABLE TRAINING BY EXPERTS RATHER THAN BY OTHERS WHO THINK THEY CAN
TEACH ICT.
SOME BETTER FACILITIES EG SCREENS AND CEILING MOUNTED DATA PROJECTORS WOULD ENABLE ME TO USE ICT EASIER WITH
STUDENTS
STILL A "DIGITAL IMMIGRANT" BUT LEARNING THE LANGUAGE!
THE MAJORITY OF MY STUDENTS ARE NOVICE USERS OF COMPUTERS AND INTERNET FUNCTIONS SO I PREFER MORE CONSERVATIVE
USE OF ICT TO INTRODUCE THEM TO THE AREA
THE TECHNOLOGY CAN'T KEEP UP. I ENVISAGE VIRTUAL CLASSROOMS WHERE PHYSICALLY HANDICAPPED PEOPLE CAN ATTEND
CLASS FROM HOME
THERE ARE MORE CHANGES ALL THE TIME    - SO CANT BE PROFICIENT ALL THE TIME - HAVE TO LEARN NEW WAYS AND PASS ON
KNOWLEDGE TO STUDENTS.
THERE IS ALWAYS SOMETHING TO LEARN WHEN IT COMES TO IT
TRANSFORMING PRACTICE - NEW WAYS OF ENGAING STUDENTS WITHIN AND BEYOND THE CLASSROOM/ LEARNING ENVIRONMENT
USE OF ICT TO RESEARCH AND DEVELOP LEARNING MATERIALS. STUDENTS CAN ACCESS MATERIALS IN THE CLASS THROUGH
STUDENT NETWORK. STUDENTS ARE ENCOURAGED TO USE ICT FOR THEIR OWN RESEARCH AND LEARNING.
VERY BASIC
VERY LIMITED- I FIND IT FRUSTRATING
WE SHARE COMPUTERS AND WHEN ONE BECOMES AVAILABLE IT IS GENERALLY SLOW TO USE. I CERTAINLY AM NOT IN A POSITION TO
EXPAND MY USE OF TECHNOLOGY WITHOUT A CHANGE IN RESOURCES PROVIDED HERE.
WHEN WRITING CAREERS EDUCATION COURSES WHICH ARE IMBEDDED INTO FACULTY ACADEMIC PROGRAMS, THE USE OF ICT IS
MINIMAL. WE ARE NOW MOVING TOWARDS BLOGS, POD CASTS AS A WAY OF INTERACTING WITH EXTERNAL STUDENTS MORE SO
THAN THE TRADITIONAL BLACKBOARD SITE.
WOULD LIKE TO BE MORE PROFICIENT BUT TIME DOES NOT PERMIT UPSKILLING.
WOULD LIKE TO HAVE THE INFRASTRUCTURE & SKILLS TO PROVIDE ON-LINE LEARNING & COMMUNICATING WITH STUDENTS
YOU DO NEED TO BE CAREFUL NOT TO BE DRAGGED INTO THE ENDLESS UPGRADE AND NEW DISCOVERY CYCLE. YOU NEED TO
BALANCE ICT USE WITH CLEAR OBJECTIVES AND GOALS. FOR EXAMPLE IT IS SOMETIMES MORE EXPEDIENT TO SIMPLY CALL PEOPLE
AND TALK INSTEAD OF ENDLESS SEARCHING OF THE NET. THE PHONE BOOK IS STILL A VERY USEFUL RESOURCE THAT PEOPLE
FORGET ABOUT.

SA
A BASIC NECESSITY FOR THE SMOOTH RUNNING OF OUR ADMIN SYSTEM.....
ABLE TO SEARCH TOPICS AND FIND RELEVANT RESOURCES & MATERIAL EFFECTIVELY
ALL IS SATISFACTORY
ALTHOUGH I PRINCIPALLY USE ICT FOR RESEARCH, DELIVERY AND COMMUNICATION IT HAS DEVELOPED A LIFE OF ITS OWN AND A
VERY SIGNIFICANT POTION OF MY TIME IS SPENT AT THE COMPUTER WRITING MATERIAL AND COMMUNICATING. YOU BECOME
ENGAGED IN A BIGGER WORLD THAT FOR ME STRETCHES FROM THE UK, ABU DAHBI, USA AND ALL AUSTRALIAN STATES
PARTICULARLY ON CURRICULUM MATTERS.
ALWAYS KEEN TO LEARN NEW SKILLS RELEVANT TO STUDENT LEARNING AND TO WORLD WE LIVE IN NOW AND FOR THE FUTURE
ALWAYS NEED TO LEARN MORE
ALWAYS TRYING TO IMPROVE EDUCATIONAL EFFECTIVENESS THROUGH INNOVATIVE USE OF TECHNOLOGIES INCLUDING VIDEO
CAPTURE, AUDIO TRACKS, DIGITAL STORIES, INTERACTIVE ONLINE ACTIVITIES AND ASSESSMENTS, REMOTE ACCESS TO COLLEGE
COMPUTER NETWORK, SIMULATORS ETC ETC
ALWAYS TRYING TO INCORPORATE NEW APPROACHES BUT SOMETIMES FLOUNDERING WITH TIME AND SKILLS TO DO IT WELL.
AM CONTINUALLY INVOLVED IN PD TO DEVELOP THESE SKILLS
AS IN QUESTION 12. BESIDES GOOD FACTUAL INFORMATION SITES I AM LOOKING FOR AUDIO AND VIDEO LIKE YOU TUBE TO MAKE
THE STUDENT'S RESEARCH MORE LIVELY AND INTERESTING, BUT TAFE WILL NOT ALLOW USE OF YOU TUBE THEREFORE I CAN NOT
USE THE INTERNET TO FULL POTENTIAL
BEING AN OLDER LECTURER I AM LEARNING WHAT I CAN TO BE PROFICIENT WITH "E" LEARNING
CAN'T STOP LEARNING!
COULD BE IMPROVED WITH PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT
CURRENT RESOURCES WITHIN TAFE INSUFFICIENT TO SUPPORT ANYTHING BEYOND THE ANSWER ABOVE.
ENJOY USING ICT AND SEE BENEFITS FOR STUDENTS. SOMETIMES DISAPPOINTED THAT COLLEAGUES ARE NOT AS KEEN.
ESSENTIAL
ESSENTIAL, IMPORTANT, EFFICIENT AND EFFECTIVE
EXPENDING CURRENT CAPABILITIES TOWARDS TRANSFORMING PRACTICE. CONTINUALLY EXPANDING REFERENCE BASE TO
SUPPORT
EXTREMELY USEFUL BOTH AS A REFERENCE AND IN DEVELOPING STUDENT WORKBOOKS FOR REMOTE (IE NOT FACE TO FACE)
STUDENTS. HOWEVER STILL FEEL THAT SOME FACE TO FACE CONTACT (ONCE OR TWICE A TERM) IS ESSENTIAL FOR STUDENT
LEARNING AND LECTURER SATISFACTION.
FRUSTRATION AT AMOUNT OF SITES THAT ARE BLOCKED TO STAFF AND THAT WE CAN SPEND A DAY SETTING UP AN ENGAGING
ASSIGNMENT FOR STUDENTS AND THEN FIND THE SITES BLOCKED WITHIN HOURS. FEELS LIKE BIG BROTHER IS WATCHING.
FRUSTRATION AT HAVING TO ASK FOR THESE SITES TO BE UNBLOCKED - AND FINDING THEM BLOCKED AGAIN - SOME-ONE ELSE
MAKING EDUCATIONAL DECISIONS? OR JUST BANDWITH LIMITATIONS? NEITHER OF THESE ARE ACCEPTABLE JUSTIFICATIONS. LACK
OF STUDENTS ACCESS TO PSSWD PROTECTED INTRANET FROM HOME.
GET BETTER AND SELF NAVIGATING
HAPHAZARD
HELPING USERS ON A ONE TO ONE BASIS NEGOTIATE THEIE WAY THROUGH THE ONLINE ENVIRONMENT. UTILISING AS MANY WEB 2.O
TECHNOLOGIES AS POSSIBLE.
HIGH LEVEL. SUPPORT TEACHERS IN TRANSFORMING PRACTICE AND MOVING BETWEEN OTHER LEVELS - FOUNDATION > EMERGENT
> PROFICIENT > TRANSFORMING.
HIGHLY SKILLED AND EXPERIENCED USER WHO WORKS AT HOME BECAUSE WORK NETWORK IS TOO RESTRICTIVE.
I AM CURRENTLY DEVELOPING A MOODLE RESOURCE FOR MY EXTERNAL STUDENTS. I HAVE CHOSEN THIS BECAUSE THE DIFFICULTY
I HAD USING JANISON WITH LOG IN ETC.
I AM FRUSTRATED MY LIMITED ACCESS FOR MY STUDENTS. SO MUCH OUT THERE AND SO LITTLE ABILITY TO BE ABLE TO DELIVER IT.
I AM GRADUALLY BECOME MORE CONFIDENT AT USING ICT FOR MY TEACHING AND LEARNING. I HAVE ESTABLISHED ON-LINE
ASSESSMENTS FOR MY STUDENTS AND AM NOW ESTABLING MOODLES SITES
I AM IN A SUPPORT ROLE BUT AM PARTICULARLY INTERESTED IN THE TRANSFORMING PRACTICE - NEW WAYS OF ENGAGING
STUDENTS AND BUSINESS BEYOND THE CLASSROOM/LEARNING ENVIRONMENT OR TRADITIONAL WORK PLACE.
I AM TRYING TO SET UP A MOODLE SITE SPECIFIC TO MY TADE FOR 1ST YEAR APPRENTICES (COUNTRY AND CITY) FOR MODULES
COMMON TO THE TRADE. NOT ENOUGH TIME AVAILABLE TO ESTABLISH IT




                                      education.au 2008                                                Page 79 of 160
I DON'T FEEL CONFIDENT ENOUGH TO UTILISE IT MORE. SOME SYSTEMS ALSO HAVE BEEN LESS THAN RELIABLE IN USE WITH LARGER
GROUPS.
I DONT JUST SURF THE NET OFTEN TO MAKE IT REAL FOR STUDENTS I LIKE THEM TO SEARCH FOR SOMETHING THAT HAS MEANING
TO THEM IE IF THEY ARE A STUDENT FROM ANOTHER COUNTRY I WILL ASK THEM TO SEARCH FOR THEIR HOME TOWN
I DON'T SEEM TO FIND THE TIME TO EXPLORE THE RANGE OF WAYS I COULD USE ICT
I EXAMINE DIFFERENT METHODS OF PRESENTATION SPECIFIC TO INFORMATION TYPE.
I FEEL I KNOW HOW TO USE A COMPUTER BUT LACK KNOWLEDGE ON UP TO DATE SOFTWARE AND PLATFORMS WITH REGARD TO
TEACHING. THINGS SUCH AS CENTRA, MOODLES, JANISON, ETC.
I FIND THE VOLUME OF STUFF ON THE INTERNET DAUNTING I DON'T KNOW HOW TO BRING TECHNOLOGY INTO THE CLASSROOM
I HAVE EXTENSIVE KNOWLEDGE WITH THE USE OF ICT AND HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO FURTHER MY SKILLS WITH PERSONAL
DEVELOPMENT, OF THE NEED ARISES.
I HAVE FOUND SOME GREAT QUIZZES, GAMES AND INTERACTIVE OH&S RESOURCES. WE CAN NO LONGER ONLY USE THE
CLASSROOM ENVIRONMENT WITH SOME LEARNING OUTCOMES. THE USE OF ICT IS RELEVANT AND IMPORTANT.
I HAVE NOT HAD TO CALL UPON EVLUATION OF THESE RESOURCES FOR OUR PROGRAMME AREAS
I HAVE TRIED TO USE AS MANY OF THE E-LEARNING TOOLS THAT I CAN - THESE INCLUDE BLOGS, WIKIS, USE OF JANISON, CENTRA,
LOTS OF WEB 2.0 TOOLS, ICLONE, DEVELOPING TEACHING RESOURCES WITH CAMTASIA AND MUCH MORE. MOST OF THIS HAS BEEN
DONE IN MY OWN TIME.
I KNOW THERE ARE GREAT OPPORTUNITIES OUT THERE - BUT THEY TAKE TIME AND MENTAL SPACE TO LEARN ABOUT,. ALSO
STUDENTS ARE OFTEN VERY RETICENT AND ACCESS TO BROADBAND IS STILL A BIG ISSUE IN THE COUNTRY!
I LECTURE IN IT, THEREFORE IT IS ESSENTIAL THAT I AM PROFICIENT AT LEAST.
I LIKE TO KNOW WHAT'S POSSIBLE, AND LEARN TO USE THE TECHNOLOGY AS NEEDED
I LIKE USING IT - BETTER FOR THE STUDENTS TO LEARN I HAVE DIFFICULTIES WITH INFRSTRUCTURE      -   NETWORKING   -   GETTING
STUDENTS ONTO THE NET, OLD COMPUTERS, ETC
I MANAGE AN ICT SUPPORT TEAM
I MOSTLY NEED TO RECOMMEND THE USE OF ICT AND SPECIFIC ADAPTIVE SOFTWARE AND ITS APPLICATIONS TO STUDENTS AND
STAFF. I WISH I HAD BETTER SKILLS SO THAT I COULD MAKE THE RECOMMENDATIONS MORE SPECIFIC AND ACCOMPANIED BY BETTER
KNOWKLEDGE OF USE.
I RECOGNISE THAT ICT TEACHING AND LEARNING IS A SUPPORT TOOL BUT NOT THE MEANS OF TEACHING OR LEARNING. THIS IS NOT
NECESSARILY MY VIEW BUT THE EVALUATIONS OF THE LEARNERS THAT I AM INVOLVED WITH.
I STARTED 38 YEARS AGO AS A FORTRAN PROGRAMMER ON CORE STORE MACHINES SO I HAVE SEEN A FEW CHANGES. I FIND IT
INTERESTING THAT MOST NEW INNOVATIONS ARE USUALLY ADVERTISED AS BEING USEFUL BECAUSE OF XYZ, BUT I FIND THAT THE
OPPOSITE HAPPENS. EG WORDPROCESSING BRINGING IN THE PAPERLESS OFFICE(MINOR CORRECTIONS & REPRINT - EVERYBODY
NOW GETS EVERYTHING), EMAILS BEING QUICK (TIME ON SPAM). INFRASTRUCTURE BOTTLENECKS - CAN'T USE ICTS EG VOIP
I TAKE ADVANTAGE OF ANY PD OPPORTUNITIES TO UPSKILL AND I AM KEEN TO ENGAGE STUDENTS IN THE ONLINE FORUM
I TRY TO UPDATE MY SKILLS AND I LOOK AT ALL KINDS OF TECHNOLOGIES, NOT JUST WEB-BASED, TO CONSIDER EDUCATIONAL
MERIT
I USE E-MAIL, DATABASES, SEARCH ENGINES, TEACHING PLATFORMS (JANISON, MOODLE) INCESSANTLY
I USE IT ALL THE TIME, WHEN ICT SYSTEMS ARE NOT AVALIABLE THE WHOLE PROCESS COMES TO A HOLT.
I USE IT AND IT IS MY PRIMARY ROLE
I WILL BE DOING SOME PROF DEVELOPMENT IN MOODLE SHORTLY
I WOULD LIKE MORE TIME AND SUPPORT TO PURSUE MORE INNOVATIVE TEACHING METHODOLOGIES
I WOULD LIKE TO HAVE GREATER SKILLS IN THE ICT AREA - PODCASTING ETC AND CERTAINLY I WOULD LOVE TO GET FORMAL
TRAINING IN THE USE OF INTERNET AND HOW TO DOWNLOAD EFFECTIVELY ETC.
I WOULD LIKE TO HAVE THE TIME TO LEARN MORE SO THAT I COULD ADVANCE TO YOUR "TRANSFORMING PRACTICE" CATEGORY.
I WOULD LIKE TO USE THE INTERNET AND ICT LEARNING METHODOLOGIES MORE WITH MY STUDENTS BUT THE LACK OF
INFRASTRUCTURE IN MY CLASS AREAS PROHIBITS THIS. ALSO MY STUDENTS HAVE A RANGE OF COMPUTER SKILLS AND WHILE I TRY
TO IMPROVE THESE SKILLS OVER THE COURSE OF THE PROGRAM, IT IS CHALLENGING TO MEET THEIR INDIVIDUAL SKILL LEVELS
GIVEN THE WIDE RANGE OF ABILITIES.
I WOULD LIKETO E MORE EFFICIENT AT IT AND HAVE MORE TIME TO DEVELOP MY SELF IN THIS FIELD.
I WOULD LOVE TO BE ABLE TO BE "TRANSFORMING PRACTICE" BUT I AM CONSTANTLY RESTRICTED BY INFRASTRUCTURE AND LACK
OF MANAGEMENT SUPPORT DUE TO THEIR LACK OF TECHNICAL KNOWLEDGE AND SKILLS
I WOULDN'T SAY THAT I AM 'TRANSFORMING PRACTICE' BUT KNOW ENOUGH ABOUT IT TO TEACH OTHERS BASIC SKILLS AND
PROBLEM SOLVE.




                                        education.au 2008                                                 Page 80 of 160
ICT IS ABSOLUTELY ESSENTIAL TO TEACHING AND TO ELECTRONIC TECHS IN THE WORKPLACE
ICT IS BECOMING EMBEDDED MORE FREQUENTLY INTO EVERYDAY UNITS AND THEREFORE USAGE IS INCREASING.
ICT STAFF OFFER GOOD SUPPORT BUT THE AMALGAMATION HAS DEPERSONALISED THEIR KNOWLEDGE OF WHO THEY ARE DEALING
WITH AND EVEN WHICH CAMPUS WE AS STAFF ARE NOW ON.
IF I HAD LESS TEACHING TIME AND MORE SPARE TIME I WOULD USE THE INTERNET MORE.
I'M A VERY CONFIDENT ICT USER, BUT I'M AN ADMINISTRATIVE STAFF MEMBER NOT A TEACHER, SO I DON'T HAVE STUDENTS OR
LEARNING OUTCOMES.
IN ADMINISTRATION, I AM PRIMARILY USING THE TECHNOLOGY TO SUPPORT THE BUSINESS AND ADMINISTRATIVE SIDE OF THE
PROGRAM. I ACT AS ADMINISTRATOR OF THE ON-LINE COMMERCIAL SITES PROVIDING SERVICES TO STUDENTS AND STAFF (ON-LINE
SURVEY TOOL, ON-LINE UNORIGINALITY CHECKING OF ASSESSMENTS AND AN ON-LINE COMMUNITY SOCIAL INTERACTION WEBSITE.)
IN TERMS OF THE ABOVE CHOICES I FEEL I'M HALFWAY BETWEEN "PROFICIENT" AND "TRANSFORMING PRACTICE". I SAY THIS
BECAUSE MY ORGANIZATION DOESN'T ALLOW ME ENOUGH TIME TO DEVELOP THESE NEW ENVIRONMENTS BY GIVING ME REDUCED
TRADITIONAL CLASS ENVIRONMENT TEACHING LOADS TO DEVELOP NEW PRACTICE.
IT HAS BEEN EXTREMELY FRUSTRATING AND TIME WASTING THIS TERM TO GET THE ST LOGINS WORKING PROPERLY.
IT IS A LANGUAGE THAT BECOMES BOTH MORE COMPLEX AND EASIER TO USE AS TIME GOES BY. FOR THAT REASON IT MUST BE
USED DAILY TO STAY FLUENT. THE HARDWARE IS STILL CLUMSY HOWEVER AND I LOOK FORWARD TO THE DAY WHEN IT BECOMES
TOTALLY INTUITIVE.
IT IS ESSENTIAL FOR TODAYS TIME POOR STUDENTS
IT IS IMPORTANT TO USE IT IN THE LEARNING ENVIRONMENT I TEACH IN BUT IT IS NOT VITAL.
IT IS PART OF MY JOB.
IT'S GOOD WHEN IT'S WORKING AND RELEVANT. VERY TIME CONSUMING FOR ME AND THE STUDENTS IF YOUR SEARCH IS NOT
SPECIFIC. FRUSTRATING WHEN INTERNET IS DOWN AND STAFF AND STUDENTS HAVE BEEN REFERRED TO PARTICULAR SITES.
I'VE BEEN SUPPORTING / FIXING HARDWARE AND SOFTWARE FOR OVER             10   YEARS. CURRENTLY IN THE ROLE OF SYSTEM
ADMINISTRATOR FOR OUR LINUX SERVERS.
LACK OF TIME TO INVESTIGATE AND DEVELOP RESOURCES... LOTS OF GOOD IDEAS, LOTS OF KNOWLEDGE AND TOOLS AWARENESS
BUT NO TIME TO APPLY. RTO'S WILL NEED TO BUDGET FOR GENUINE 'TIME OUT' PD OPPORTUNITIES IF WE ARE TO SEE THE REAL
POTENTIAL BECOME A REALITY... IE RATHER THAN JUST DANGLING THE CARROT WITH ONE DAY WORKSHOPS ETC, WEEKS AND
MONTHS NEED TO BE PUT ASIDE FOR STAFF TO DEVELOP RESOURCES ONCE THEY HAVE THE VISION.
LEADING THE WAY
LESS RESTRICTION ON STAFF USE OF THE INTERNET. MORE CHECKS ON STUDENT ACCESS AND BLOCKING
LIBRARIES ARE CONSIDERED TO BE AT THE CUTTING EDGE OF ICT - OFTEN LOOKED UPON AS INITIATORS OR ENABLERS WITH 'CAN
DO' ATTITUDES - TO BE HINDERED WITH ANTIQUATED NETWORKS, INEFFECIENT PROTOCOLS AND HELP DESK STAFF THAT SEE
THEMSELVES AS 'CENSORS' OR 'INVIGILATORS' IS NO WAY FORWARD. WE NEED A COLLABORATIVE APPROACH THAT EMBRACES RISK
MANAGEMENT OF ICT...CONSULTING BOTH IT STAFF AND EDUCATIONALIST AND OUR CORE CUSTOMERS.
MAINTAIN ONGOING DEVELOPMENT TO KEEP UP-TO-DATE WITH NEW TECHNOLOGIES USE ELEARNING STRATEGIES CONDUCT STAFF
PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT IN ICT SKILLS AREAS
MANAGMEENT ROLE AND TRAINING STAFF AND ENSURING EDUCATION COMPLIANCE
MANY VET STAFF ARE SLOW IN TAKING ON THE USE OF WEB TECHNOLOGIES TO ASSIST IN DELIVERING VET.
MORE USE OF DYNAMIC, INTERACTIVE AND AUDIO-VISUAL MATERIAL WOULD MAKE LEARNING ACTIVITIES MORE ENGAGING. TOO
MUCH MATERIAL PRESENTED TO STUDENTS IS SIMPLY TEXT BOOK ONLINE, STATIC TEXT WITH IMAGES.
MY ICT SKILLS ARE QUITE PROFICENT FOR MY ROLE AS OFFICE MANAGER
MY SKILLS ARE BASIC BUT MEET MY NEEDS IN ORDER TO PERFORM MY JOB PROPERLY EG PREPARING WORK BOOKS , LECTURE
NOTES , POWERPOINT , AND COMMUNICATING APPROPRIATELY WITH STAFF AND STUDENTS AND EXTERNAL CLIENTS.
MY SKILLS COULD BE BETTER
MY USE OF ICT AND CONFIDENCE IN ACCESSING ICT HAS GROWN ACCORDING TO THE NATURE OF MY JOB ROLES. MY PREVIOUS
PROJECT WORK REQUIRED ME TO UPSKILL RAPIDLY IN THE USE OF ICT; MY CURRENT WORK ROLE REQUIRES ME TO BE CONFIDENT
IN USING ICT. I BELIEVE THAT STAFF USE ICT WHEN THEY NEED IT SO PD AROUND THIS SHOULD BE APPLICABLE TO CURRENT WORK
ROLES, AS THIS IS WHAT HAS ENABLED ME TO IMPROVE IN MY ICT SKILLS.
MY USE OF ICT IS NOT JUST FOR ACHIEVING LEARNING OUTCOMES, BUT ALSO FOR PRODUCING/ADAPTING/ DEVELOPING AND
STORING RESOURCES, INCLUDING CLASSROOM AND ASSESSMENT RESOURCES. I ALSO GO TO PD SESSIONS TO DEVELOP SKILLS
WHICH WILL NOT, IN THE SHORT TERM, BE USED IN THE CLASSROOM BECAUSE THEY ARE NOT RELEVANT TO OUR CURRENT
STUDENT GROUPS, BUT OVER TIME WILL BE NECESSARY.
MY WORK GROUP HAS NOT BEEN INTERESTED IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF ICT SKILLS.

N/A
NEED MORE CLASSROOMS WITH COMPUTERS
NEED MORE PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT TO EXPAND OPPORTUNTIES - NEED MORE MONEY FOR SOFTWARE PURCHASE
NEED MORE TIME TO DEVELOP RESOURSES.
NO
NO ONE SEEMS TO KNOW WHAT TO DO WHEN THE INTERNET IS DOWN
NOT ENOUGH TRAINING FOR STAFF
NOT IN A TEACHING ROLE
NOT MANY OF MY CLASSES USE ITC, HOWEVER, STUDENTS ARE REQUIRED TO USE ITC FOR THEIR RESEARCH.
NOT REALLY
NOT UP TO SCRATCH.. NOT CONFIDENT
OFTEN GET FRUSTRATED WITH TECH PROBS NEED TO KNOW MORE ABOUT HOW TO EFFECTIVELY USE ICT MORE
OUR STUDENTS ARE ALL IN A "FACE TO FACE" LEARNING ENVIRONMENT AND AS SUCH E-MAIL IS CURRENTLY THE ONLY CONTACT
NEEDED OUTSIDE OF CLASS ACTIVITIES.
OVER THE PAST TEN YEARS IT HAS BECOME A TIME CONSUMING BUT INTERESTING AND EVOLVING PART OF MY CLASSROOM CLIMATE
AND MY PERSONAL LEARNING.
PART OF EVERYDAY LIFE - IN OUR DISTANCE LEARNING PROGRAM THE INTERNET/EMAIL IS THE MAJOR METHOD OF COMMUNICATING
WITH STUDENTS.
PLEASE REMEMBER THAT ICT IS NOT THE BE ALL AND END ALL IN EDUCATION OR IN THE IN THE WORKPLACE. ICT BECOMES ANOTHER
PART OF THE ARMOURY OF THE EDUCATIONALIST OR IN AN ENGINEERING ENVIRONMENT AN AID TO MANUFACTURE, A TOOL TO
MANUFACTURE.
PROFICIENT IN THE AREAS THAT I USE REGULARLY. FOUNDATION IN AREAS THAT I RARELY USE.
PROTECTING THE ENVIRONMENT.
RESEARCH, COMMUNICATION, SET UP AND USE OF JANISON SITE TO SUPPORT STUDENTS LEARNING
ROLE OF ICT INCREASING FOR LIBRARIANS SOMETIME4S HAMPERED BY OTHER POLICYMAKERS AND POOR ICT INFRASTRUCTURE
AND BANDWITH
SELF-PACED BY WORKING FROM HOME USING TECHNOLOGIES; NOT PRINTING BUT PROVIDING ELECTRONIC COPIES
STAFF DEVELOPMENT IS IMPORTANT AND EACH OF US SHOULD BE GIVEN OPPORTUNITIES TO LOOK AT NEW TECHNOLOGIES AND TO
EXPERIENCE THEM AS WELL SO THAT WE CAN BECOME COMPETENT IN THEIR USE SO THAT WE CAN BRING THE SKILLS INTO THE
WORKPLACE.
STILL LEARNING PRACTICING AND DEVELOPING
THE INFRASTRUCTURE AVAILABLE AT WORK DOES NOT REFLECT CURRENT TECHNOLOGIES AVAILABLE. TAFE CANNOT BE
RESPONSIVE IN ADAPTING TO YOUNG LEARNER METHODOGIES IF THE IT EQUIPMENT IS NOT AVALIABLE IN A SUITABLE TIMEFRAME.
TEACHING REPLACEMENT IS NEEDED TO ALLOW STAFF TO EXPERIMENT AND CONVERT EXISTING MATERIAL TO ON-LINE OR TO
EMERGING LEARNING TOOLS.
THERE IS A GREAT DEAL OF LEARNING TO BE DONE ON THIS TOPIC. I AM NOT SURE THAT I CAN FULLY EMBRACE IT, EVEN THOUGH I
AM WILLING TO GIVE IT GO. THERE SEEMS TO BE ALWAYS NEW DEVELOPMENTS BEING IMPLEMENTED . IT SEEMS THAT THERE IS NO
END TO THE "CATCHUP " GAME.
THIS IS MY ROLE WITHIN TAFESA
TIME AND EQUIPMENT ARE A KEY PRIORITY. FOR EXAMPLE THE SOFTWARE AND EQUIPMENT STAFF ARE GIVEN TO USE IN THE
OFFICES IS AFTER IT IS CONSIDERED OUT OF DATE FOR STUDENTS. WE EVEN TEACH ICT AT AN INTRO LEVEL AND OUR STAFF HAVE
VERSIONS THAT ARE SEVERAL YEARS OUT OF DATE. GOVT RHETORIC TO SUPPORT ICT DOES NOT MATCH BUDGET ALLOCATION. WE
EVEN RAISE MONEY TO BUY OUR OWN EQUIPMENT
UNFORTUNATELY, I CAN'T FIND THE TIME TO DEVELOP MY SKILLS AND USE IT AS OFTEN AS I'D LIKE TO.
USE IT ALL THE TIME EVEN IN A SIMPLE WAY - I DELIVER SESSIONS USING POWERPOINT AND NOT OVERHEAD TRANSPARENCIES.
USE MOODLE CLASSROOMS FOR ALL TEACHING WITH BLENDED DELIVERY.
USE MOODLE FOR ONLINE COURSES AND SUPPORT OF EXTERNAL STUDENTS            -   COMMUNICATION MORE BY EMAIL TO EXTERNAL
STUDENTS RATHER THAN PHONE.
USING BLOG FACILITY FOR STUDENTS TO LOG GROUPWORK CONTRIBUTIONS. WE ANTICIPATE THIS WILL BE BETTER THAN THE OLD
PAPER LOG BOOKS BECAUSE: 1. OTHER GROUP MEMBERS CAN SEE THE LOG ENTRIES BEING MADE BY EACH MEMBER (IMPROVED
COMMUNICATION, PLUS MAKES CLAIMS OPEN TO REVIEW/VERIFICATION). 2. LOG ENTIRIES ARE TIME-STAMPED, THUS AVOIDING
LAST MINUTE FABRICATION OF LOG BOOK ENTRIES JUST PRIOR TO HANDIN DEADLINES.

USING ICT TO CREATE ANOTHER WAY OF INTERACTION WITH STUDENTS
VERY EFFICIENT PRESENTLY
VERY LIMITED KNOWLEDGE. WOULD LIKE TO UNDERSTAND SYSTEMS MORE BUT REQUIRES A GREAT DEALOF TIME AND SUPPORT.
DON'T HAVE A LOT OF TIME TO SPARE.
VERY PROFICIENT
VIA THE TAFESA MOODLE SITE I'M WORKING ON
WANT MANAGMENT TO SUPPORT AND PROVIDE $ AND TIME FOR DEVELOPEMENT IN THIS AREA. THIS COULD BE DONE THROUGH
FUNDING OF THE NEW TRAINING DIPLOMA, WHICH HAS A BIG FOCUS ON E-LEARNING.
WANT TO BE ABLE TO USE WEB 2.0 TOOLS AND SITES WHERE IT IS APPROPRIATE FOR WORK; AND WANT TRAINING IN THESE.
STUDENTS AND OTHER STAKEHOLDERS (OUR CUSTOMER BASE) ARE COMING TO EXPECT ONLINE DELIVERY OF COURSES AND
PROFICIENCY IN WEB 2.0; WOULD LIKE TO COMPLY WITH THIS EXPECTATION.
WANT TO EXPAND MY SKILLS BUT FIND IT VERY DIFFICULT TO SPEND TIME WHEN I FEEL THAT I AM SNOWED UNDER (WORK PART TIME
ONLY)
WE ALL HAVE TO UP WITH CURRENT TRENDA TO KEEP ALL LEARNERS ENGAGED. WITH ALL OUR COMPETENCIES AVAILABLE ONLINE
THE STUDENTS CAN ACCESS THEIR SESSIONS ANY TIME ANY WHERE. WE ARE CONSTANTLY UPGRADING AND RESEARCHING NEW
AND INNOVATIVE WAYS TO BE FLEXIBLE.
WE ARE TRYING TO MAKLE MORE USE OF POWERPIONT PRESENTATIONS IN THE CLASS ROOMS, THIS IS NOT ALWAYS EASY AS THE
EQUIPMENT DOES NOT ALWAYS WORK AS IT SHOULD
WE ARE WORKING TO DELIVER CONTENT ONLINE, SUCH AS NOTES, AUDIO AND VIDEO TUTORIALS.
WE NEED MORE FREEDOM OF CHOICE ON THE INTERNET.
WORK IN INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY STUDIES
WORK WITHIN ICT DEPARTMENT TO SUPPORT ONLINE NETWORKS
WOULD APPRECIATE FURTHER STAFF DEVELOPMENT, WITH THE SUPPORT OF APPROPRIATE INFRASTRUCTURE STUDENTS NEED
EXPOSURE TO ITC TO EXPAND THEIR KNOWLEDGE IN THEIR CHOICE OF STUDY PATHWAY AND INTO THE WORKING WORLD IN
GENERAL



VIC
ENCOURAGE SCHOOLS TO IDENTIFY NEW USES FOR EMERGING TECHNOLOGIES IN THE EDUCATION CONTEXT
FIND ICT ESSENTIAL TO RESEARCH, COMMUNICATION WITH STUDENTS AND TEACHING
WE LOOK AT THE TECHNOLOGIES THAT PEOPLE ARE USING IN THEIR DAY-TO-DAY LIFE AND TRY TO WORK OUT HOW THESE
TECHNOLOGIES COULD BE BEST USED TO FACILITATE TEACHING AND LEARNING.



WA
A VERY USEFUL TOOL FOR TEACHING BUT I DON'T USE IT AS A FOCUS OF LEARNING BUT RATHER AS AN ADDITIONAL STRATEGY FOR
BUILDING RESOURCEFULNESS IN STUDENTS. LACK OF ACCESS TO RELIABLE RESOURCES MAKES IT FRUSTRATING AT TIMES
THOUGH AND I'VE LEARNT NOT TO BE DEPENDENT ON USING COMPUTERS WHOLLY AND SOLEY FOR A LESSON - ALWAYS HAVE A
BACK UP PLAN.
ACTIVE ENGAGMENT OF STUDENTS THROUGH TECHNOLOGY THROUGH USE OF SMART BOARD AND AIRLINER
ADEQUATE FOR SCHOOL PURPOSES, BUT COULD LEARN MORE ABOUT UP TO DATE ICT ISSUES.
ALWAYS AWARE THAT I COULD DO MORE - LACK OF TIME AND SKILLS INHIBIT THIS.
ATTEMPTING TO DEVELOP A WHOLE SCHOOL APPROACH TO ONLINE TEACHING AND LEARNING.
BARRIERS ARE MONEY THAT THE SCHOOL HAS TO PROVIDE CERTAIN LEARNING TECHNOLOGIES LOVE USING IT IN THE CLASSROOM
AND STUDENTS ARE MORE ENGAGED..
BEING EMPLOYED PART TIME IS A REAL DISADVANTAGE IN HAVING THE TIME TO LEARN NEW TECHNOLOGIES AS WELL AS A CRITICAL
LACK OF PD OPPORTUNITIES.
CONFIDENCE AND SKILLS HAVE GROWN THROUGH CONSTANT USE OF THE INTERNET AND I BELIEVE THAT I FOSTER GREAT ICT SKLLS
IN MY STUDENTS WITH THE LIMITED RESOURCES I HAVE AVAILABLE.
CURRENTLY PART OF SCHOOL'S ICT COMMITTEE, WORKING ON PROMOTING AND PRIORITY ACROSS THE SCHOOL. FORMERLY ICT
COORDINATOR (DUAL ROLE WITH ANOTHER STAFF MEMBER) WHILST WERE ON THE LEARNING WITH ICT PROJECT. WE COMPLETED
THIS LAST YEAR.

CURRENTLY STUDYING FOR A MASTERS AND ONE OF THE SUBJECTS IS INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY FOR TEACHING AND LEARNING
AND I AM ALSO ENROLLED IN TEACHERS HAVE CLASS THROUGH PDPOINT.COM
CUSTOM ANIMATED POWER POINTS, PICTURES AND ELECTRONIC ASSIGNMENTS. I ALSO USE PODCASTS WITH TEXT TO ASSIST
STUDENTS WHO HAVE LITERACY LEVELS.
DAILY USAGE
GET VERY FRUSTRATED AT TIMES BECAUSE I CANNOT DO WHAT I OR THE STUDENTS WANT / NEED TO DO BECAUSE EVEN ALTHOUGH
THERE MAY BE ENOUGH COMPUTERS AVAILABLE, THE COMPUTERS ARE NOT WORKING AND THERE IS ONLY ONE PERSON WHO CAN /
IS ALLOWED TO FIX IT AND SHE ONLY WORKS ONE DAY A WEEK.
GETTING MORE OBSERVABLY PROFICIENT DAILY. NOW DEVELOPING A BLOG AND USING ME.EDU.AU REGULARLY. USE AN RSS
READER.
I AM A FREQUENT USER OF ICT RESOURCES AND HAVEN'T GOT THE TIME OR EXPERTISE TO BE A DEVELOPER. I WOULD APPRECIATE
HELP AT A DET LEVEL IN FINDING NEW RESOURCES.
I AM A KEEN EXPLORER AND LIKE TO TRY NEW TECHNOLOGIES
I AM AIMING TO EXPAND MORE MULTIMEDIA ASPECTS OF ICT IN THECLASSROOM
I AM BECOMING MORE CONFIDENT IN THE USE OF COMPUTERS AND HOW THEY CAN BE INTEGRATED INTO MY EVERYDAY LIFE TO
SUPPORT MY WORK PRACTICES.
I AM CERTAINLY BECOMING MORE CONFIDENT BUT THE EDUCATION DEPARTMENT EXPECTATIONS AND DEVELOPMENTS IN THIS FIELD
MOVE RAPIDLY. THERE IS AT TIMES A CONFLICT BETWEEN THE FACE TO FACE, PRINT BASED AND ONLINE ASPECTS OF MY DAILY
ROLE. AT TIMES I FEEL THAT I DON'T GET ADEQUATE TIME FOR ALL THREE. THIS CAN BE VERY FRUSTRATING AND LEAVE ME FEELING
A LOSS OF JOB SATISFACTION.
I AM CONFIDENT IN MY OWN USE OF COMPUTERS FOR THE NEEDS I CURRENTLY HAVE BUT I AM NOT CONFIDENT IN TEACHING
STUDENTS ABOUT COMPUTERS.
I AM CONFIDENT IN SOME AREAS BUT ONLY LEARNING IN OTHERS. FOR EXAMPLE I WOULD LIKE TO MAKE MORE USE OF WEBQUESTS
IN MY LEARNING.
I AM CONFIDENT IN SOME PROGRAMMES AND AREAS BUT AM ALWAYS LEARNING MORE. I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW MORE ABOUT AND BE
ABLE TO USE MOODLE, WEB 2.0 TECHNOLOGIES AND SMARTBOARDS.
I AM CONFIDENT WHEN USING ICT TECHNOLOGIES IN THE CLASSROOM BUT AM ALWAYS LOOKING FOR NEW AND INTERESTING WAYS
TO INCORPORATE IT INTO MY TEACHING.
I AM CONFIDENT, BUT SOMETIMES THE MACHINARY LETS ME DOWN. LIKE A CAR I GUESS, WON'T STOP USING IT JUST BECAUSE IT
SOME TIMES GETS A FLAT TYRE!
I AM CONSTANTLY TRYING DIFFERENT WAYS TO USE ICT TO SUPPORT THE STUDENTS AND TEACHERS IN THEIR PROGRAMS. THE
MAIN BARRIER FOR ME IS TRAINING PARENTS AND HOME TUTORS IN ICT TO SUPPORT WHAT THE STUDENT IS DOING
I AM CURRENTLY UNDERGOING TRAINING AND USE OF ON-LINE LEARNING PROGRAMS FOR MY STUDENTS.
I AM CURRENTLY UNDERTAKING P.D. USING 'MOVIE MAKER'> I FIND TIME IS THE BIGGEST RESTRICTION TO DEVELOPING MY SKILLS
AND EXPERTISE FURTHER. I TEACH MYSELF AT HOME TO USE NEW TECHNOLOGIES EG PODCAST ETC BUT I DON'T USE THEM AT
SCHOOL.
I AM CURRENTLY USING TEACHERS HAVE CLASS PROGRAM TO ASSIST ME IN ICT USAGE AND UTILIZING IT MORE IN MY TEACHING AND
LEARNING STRATEGIES. BEFORE I MOSTLY USED THE INTERNET AS A SEARCH ENGINE AND WHEN I ACCESS THE INFORMATION I
WOULD ADAPT IT INTO HARD COPY FOR CLASSROOM USE. I AM NOW USING ASSIGNMENTS ONLINE AND STUDENTS ARE USING
WEBSITES THAT I HAVE IDENTIFIED TO MAKE THE TASK MORE RICH AND INTERESTING.
I AM DESPERATELY INTERESTED IN EXPANDING THE USE OF ICT IN CLASS. HOWEVER, LEARNING MYSELF IS SLOW AND COSTLY. I'M A
SINGLE INCOME HOME. THE PD COST IS WELL BEYOND WHAT I CAN JUSTIFY WITH ONLY 5 - 6 YEARS LEFT TO WORK. I'M NOT GOING
TO BECOME A PRINCIPAL ON THE BACK OF NEW LEARNING!!
I AM INTERESTED IN USING THE INTERACTIVITY ASPECT OF ICT. MY EXPERIENCE IS THAT STUDENTS ARE VERY WELL MOTIVATED TO
USE TECHNOLOGY AND THEY ENJOY USING JANISON. THE DIFFICULTY AS ALWAYS IS THE TIME TO BECOME PROFICIENT AND TO BE
LEADER REQUIRES THAT I SPEND A LOT OF MY OWN PERSONAL TIME DEVELOPING MY SKILLS.
I AM SELF TAUGHT AND I BELIEVE THAT GIVING THE STUDENTS THE TIME TO WORK ON THEIR SKILLS BY THEMSELVES AT THEIR OWN
PACE IS VITAL. THEY KNOW HOW TO DO CERTAIN THINGS WELL BECAUSE THEY WERE GIVEN THE TIME TO WORK IT OUT BY
THEMSELVES WITH MINIMAL ASSISTANCE FROM ME UNLESS THEY REQUESTED IT. THIS ALLOWED SOME PEER TUTORING TO EVOLVE
AND THEWIR SKILLS TO BE BROADEN.
I AM THE CICT COORDINATOR AND ENCOURAGE OTHER TEACHERS TO USE ICT WITH THEIR STUDENTS. I'M RESPONSIBLE FOR THE
PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT OF OUR TEACHERS IN THIS AREA. I DEVELOP THE INTRANET AND OUR WEBSITES.
I AM THE ICT COORDINATOR AT MY SCHOOL AN HELP OTHER TEACHERS WITH THEIR ICT USE. WE HAVE VERY YOUNG STUDENTS AND
SO THEY DON'T USE COMPUTERS INDEPENDENTLY MUCH.

I AM THE SCHOOL ICT CURRICULUM COORDINATOR. I AM WORKING WITH TEACHER TWO DAYS A WEEK TO TRY TO HELP THEM COME
MORE PROFICENT IN THE USE OF ICT IN THE CLASSROOM, GIVING THEM IDEAS AND INSPIRING THEM TO INTEGRATE ICT INTO ALL
LEARNING AREAS. ICT IS A WONDERFUL WAY TO ENGAGE CHILDREN
I CURRENTLY USE A LEARNING MANAGEMENT SYSTEM FOR ASYNCHRONOUS TEACHING AND A SYNCHRONOUS SYSTEM (CENTRA) TO
WORK WITH MY STUDENTS. I AM USING THE LMS TO DEVELOP BLOGS AND DISCUSSION FORUMS SO MY STUDENTS CAN SHARE IDEAS
AND RESPONSES. I AM A MENTOR TO OTHER TEACHERS TO DEVELOP THEIR OWN USE OF ICTS IN TEACHING AND LEARNING.
I DELIVER LESSONS ONLINE TO STUDENTS IN REMOTE LOCATIONS. ICT IN THIS AREA IN CONSTANTLY DEVELOPING AND I TRY TO
KEEP UP AND ENCORPORATE NEW INITIATIVES TO MAKE PROGRAMS MORE MOTIVATING AND APPEALING.
I DIRECTLY EDUCATE CHILDREN IN THE USE OF ICT AND ADVISE THE SCHOOL ON THE NEEDS TO MEET THE CURRICULUM OUTCOMES.
I DON'T HAVE A BROAD KNOWLEDGE OF LOTS OF SOFTWARE BUT WHAT I USE I NOW KNOW QUITE WELL...I AM AWARE OF MY
PROFICIENCY WHEN I CAN SUCCESSFULLY TROUBLE SHOOT, WORK MY WAY AROUND NEW SOFTWARE THAT I AM UNFAMILIAR WITH
AND ABLE TO HELP OTHERS WHO HAVE PROBLEMS...MY HUSBAND IS A PROJECT MANNER AND WAS IN IT SUPPORT FOR MANY YEARS
AND I THINK I HAVE PICKED UP A LOT BY OSMOSIS :-)
I ENJOY BRING NEW TECHNOLOGIES TO MY STUDENTS AND STAFF.
I ENJOY USING A SMARTBOARD 3-5 DAYS A WEEK. I DO MANY OF THE SAME ACTIVITIES WHICH I USED TO DO WITH STUDENTS USING
PEN AND PAPER BUT THE SMARTBOARD ALLOWS ME TO PRESENT THESE ACTIVITIES IN A WAY THAT IS MORE MOTIVATING FOR
TODAY'S STUDENTS.
I ENJOY USING ICT AND FEEL THAT IT IS GREAT WAY TO ENGAGE RELUCTANT LEARNERS.
I ENJOY USING ICT FOR SPEED OF ACCESS TO INFORMATION AS IT IS NEEDED IN THE CLASSROOM. I AM FORTUNATE IN HAVING A
HIGH RATIO OF COMPUTERS TO STUDENTS AND HAVE OPPORTUNITIES ON A DAILY BASIS FOR ACCESS ACROSS THE SUBJECT AREAS.
STUDENTS HAVE GONE FROM USING THE INTERNET AND COMPUTERS FOR GAMES ONLY TO USING THEM TO IMPROVE THEIR
LEARNING, SKILLS AND UNDERSTANDINGS.
I FEEL CONFIDENT IN THE WAYS I REGULARLY USE ICT. EXTENDING THE BASIS IS OF INTEREST, BUT TIME TIME TIME IS THE MAJOR
PROHIBITIVE FACTOR IN DEVELOPING MORE PROFICIENT USE BEYIND MY CURRENT RANGE.
I FEEL VERY STRONGLY THAT I HAVE NOT BEEN OFFERED SUFFICIENT TRAINING TO FEEL CONFIDENT WITH THE USE OF ICT
I FIND IT HARD TO IMPLEMENT ICT WITH MY STUDENTS IN MY CLASSROOM DUE TO A) ANTIQUATED EQUIPMENT AND B) BEHAVIOUR
PROBLEMS WHERE CHILDREN CAN'T ACCEPT THAT THEY NEED TO HAVE PATIENCE FOR THEIR TURN AND IN THINKING OUT THEIR
OWN SOLUTIONS. ( SYMPTOMATIC OF CONTEMPORARY INTERACTION BETWEEN TODAY'S CHILDREN AND PARENTS - EVERYTHING
MUST BE GIVEN - NOT EARNED; AND IT MUST BE NOW!)
I HAVE BEEN ENROLLED IN THE TEACHER HAVE CLASS COMPUTER COURSE FOR NEARLY 18MONTHS AND AS YET HAVE HARDLY
MADE THE TIME TO PARTICIPATE DUE TO THERE ALWAYS BEING SO MUCH SCHOOL STUFF TO DO I JUST HAVE NOT MADE IT TO THE
COURSE. I AM ONLY A PART TIME TEACHER AND THE TIME IS ALWAYS SPENT ON GETTING THE KIDS IN CLASS ORGANIZED FIRST. I
NEED TO PLACE THE TEACHERS HAVE CLASS HIGHER ON MY LIST TO ACHIEVE. THEN SURELY MY USE OF ICT WOULD IMPROVE IN
AND OUT OF THE CLASS.
I HAVE BEEN INVOLVED IN ICT AT PRIMARY, DISTRICT, TERTIARY AND STATE LEVELS. IT IS A PASSION OF MINE AND ENJOY USING
TECHNOLOGY FOR LEARNING AND TEACHING AS WELL AS TO ENHANCE MY ADMINISTRATIVE WORK.
I HAVE BEEN WORKING WITH STAFF TO ASSIST THEM TO BE PROFICIENT IN THE USE OF TECHNOLOGY TO USE AS A LEARNING TOOL
FOR THEIR STUDENTS
I HAVE COMPLETED ONLINE TEACHING AND LEARNING PROGRAMS, I AM ALSO THE SCHOOLS LEARNING WITH ICT COOREDINATOR AT
OUR SCHOOL. ONE OF OUR PRIORITY AREAS THIS YEAR IS ICT AND CHANGING PEDAGOGY IN THE WAY ICT IS EMBEDDED INTO TH
CURRICULUM AND USED TO IMPROVE THE OUCOMES OF ALL STUDENTS. I FEEL I AM INNOVATIVE AND INSPIRE OTHERS TO GET
EXCITED ABOUT ICT BY SHARING EXPERTISE, EXPOSURE TO NEW SOFTWARE OR TECHNOLOGIES, SUPPORTING CHANGE AND
ASSISTING WITH TECHNICAL ISSUES.
I HAVE EXCELLENT COLLEGIAL SUPPORT IN IT. I AM GROWING MORE IN CONFIDENCE ESPECIALLY SINCE THE INTRODUCTION OF THE
SMARTBOARD AT THE FRONT OF MY CLASS.
I HAVE UNDERTAKEN PROFESSIONAL LEARNING TO SUPPORT MY STAFF WITH COMPUTERS AND OTHER ICT PERIPHERALS AND THEIR
USE TO ENGAGE STUDENTS AND TO SUPPLY QUALITY LEARNING OPPORTUNITIES. CENTRA IS AN ENGAGING AND EFFICIENT METHOD
OF ONLINE TEACHING AND LEARNING. I AM LOOKIN FORWARD TO THE SUPPORT TEACHERS WILL RECEIVE THROUGH THE USE OF
OTLS
I JUST LOVE USING THE TECHNOLOGY TO SUPPORT MY TEACHING PRACTICE. IT ENGAGES THE STUDENTS AND IS A VALUABLE TOOL. I
JUST WISH EACH STUDENT WAS ABLE TO ACCESS COMPUTERS AT THE SAME TIME INSTEAD OF TRYING TO SHARE 4 COMPUTERS
BETWEEN 27 STUDENTS IN MY CLASS.
I LACK EXPERTISE IN ICT AND FIND IT DIFFICULT TO FIND THE TIME AND THE HELP NEEDED BUT I AM LEARNING MORE EVERY DAY
I LIKE THE IDEAS BUT IT IS OFTEN TIME CONSUMING TO GET THINGS FINISHED BECAUSE OF TIME CONSTRAINTS WITH TEACHING AND
LEARNING.




                                      education.au 2008                                                  Page 85 of 160
I LIKE TO USE ICT AS A TOOL FOR STUDENTS.
I LIKE TO USE IT THE BEST I CAN BUT AM AT TIMES RESTRICTED BY SOME ASPECTS OF THE CURRICULUM.
I MAY HAVE REACHED A PLATEAU IN THE USE OF ICT IN A TEACHING/LEARNING ENVIRONMENT. FURTHER DEVELOPMENT WOULD
REQUIRE ADEQUATE PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT TO IMPROVE MY SKILLS AND THE PROVISION OF PORTABLE COMPUTERS FOR
EACH STUDENT. I LOOK FORWARD TO THE DAY WHEN EACH STUDENT HAS A PORTABLE COMPUTER, TREATED IN THE SAME WAY AS A
CALCULATOR OR PEN. AFTER ALL - WE DON'T SEND THE STUDENTS TO A "PEN LABORATORY" TO TEACH THEM HOW TO USE A PEN.
ICT NEEDS TO BE TRULY INTEGRATED INTO THE LEARNING PROCESS.
I ONLY HAVE ONE COMPUTER THAT (SORT OF) WORKS IN MY CLASSROOM. THIS ONE COMPUTER ALWAYS CRASHES AND STUDENTS
DON'T LIKE USING IT. CONTINUAL REQUESTS BY MYSELF FOR MORE COMPUTERS AND A COMPUTER TECHNICIAN HAVE BEEN
IGNORES. THIS IS VERY FRUSTRATING!!!!!!!!!!!
I ONLY USE IT BECAUSE ITS THE THING TO DO AND I KNOW I NEED TO KEEP UP WITH SKILLS OTHERWISE I'LL GET LOST. KIDS LOVE IT,
VERY MOTIVATED BY ICT
I PARTICIPATED IN THE BEST PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT SESSIONS I HAVE EVER ATTENDED LAST YEAR AS A MEMBER OF THE
EDUCATION DEPARTMENTS SLICT PROJECT. THIS YEAR I WAS NOT GIVEN A JOB BY THE DEPARTMENT. I MANAGED TO GET MYSELF 2
DAYS A WEEK AT A SCHOOL BUT I AM NOW ONLY ABLE TO USE MY NEW LEARNT SKILLS WITH MY OWN CLASS. I AM NOT AT THE
SCHOOL ENOUGH TO SHARE MY IDEAS AND THE DEPARTMENT DID NOT SEEM TO THINK IT WAS PRUDENT TO USE THE SKILLS I
DEVELOPED OVER THE 12 DAYS OF PD I ATTENDED.
I PRACTISE INQUIRY LEARNING IN MY TEACHING PEDAGOGY AND THIS RELIES ON INTEGRATING LEARNING AREAS AND
INCORPORATING ICT INTO MY TEACHING AND LEARNING PROGRAMME. I AM ALSO CURRENTLY PART OF AN ON-LINE LEARNING
COMMUNITY, USING THE INTERNET AND AM DOING ON-LINE PDS ON DIFFERENT AND NEW WAYS TO USE ICT IN MY CLASSROOM.
I PROVIDE SUPPORT TO TEACHERS IN THE USE OF ICT. THIS SUPPORT IS INTENDED TO ENCOURAGE TEACHERS TO USE ICT AS A
CONTINUATION OF THEIR CLASS PROGRAMS TO ENHANCE THE STUDENTS' UNDERSTANDINGS AND TO ENCOURAGE HIGHER LEVEL
THINKING.
I REALLY NEED TO DO MORE ICT WORK WITH THE CHILDREN IN MY CLASS AND MY OWN KNOWLEDGE OF COMPUTING IS STILL
LIMITED.
I TEACH SCIENCE TO 600 PRIMARY CHILDREN (K-7) WEEKLY. I SEEK AND DEVELOP HANDS ON ACTIVITIES WHICH HELP STUDENTS
ACHIEVE OUTCOMES. I SOURCE INTERACTIVE ACTIVITIES TO SUPPORT AND ENHANCE MY 'SCIENCE BY DOING'. I NOW HAVE ABOUT
500 CHILDREN WHO WANT TO BE SCIENTISTS!
I THINK I AM CONFIDENT AT FINDING INFORMATION, HOWEVER I DON'T USE IT TO SHARE INFORMATION. I TEND TO PREPARE PHONE
CALLS AND FACE TO FACE CONTACT. I DON'T ENJOY PROFESSIONAL LEARNING ON LINE. I LIKE TO INTERACT WITH PEOPLE AS I SAID
PREVIOUSLY IN A FACE TO FACE SITUATION
I USE A SMARTBOARD IN MY CLASSROOM DAILY, MAKE USE OF LEARNING EXPERIENCES ONLINE AND ENCOURAGE THE CHILDREN TO
INTERACT WITH ICT AS OFTEN AS POSSIBLE.
I USE A SMARTBOARD IN THE CLASSROOM AND HAVE AVAILABLE 5 LAPTOP COMPUTERS FOR USE IN THE ROOM AT ANY TIME. I COME
TO TEACHING WITH A BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION AND SECRETARIAL BACKGROUND SO I AM AWARE OF THE IMPORTANCE OF THIS
TOOL TO TEACHING AND LEARNING.
I USE ICT IN ALL ASPECTS OF MY TEACHING POSITION
I USE ICT REGULARLY IN THE CLASSROOM AS PART OF MY T&E AREA AND IN OTHER AREAS LIKE SCIENCE, ENGLISH AND MATHS. I
THROUGHLY ENJOY USING ICT WITH THE KIDS AND WOULD LOVE TO TEACH IT AS A SPECIALIST.
I USE ICT WHERE EVER POSSIBLE I AM FRUSTRATED WITH INFASTRUCTURE WITHIN THE SCHOOL ENVIRONMENT, WE'RE WIRELESS
AND THE NUMBER OF STUDENTS TRYING TO ACCESS THE NET AT ONCE MEANS THAT LESSONS CAN BECOME A DISASTER AS THE
WIRELESS CANT KEEP PACE. OLD COMPUTERS CANT KEEP PACE BUT I DO THE BEST I CAN AS I SEE IT AS ESSENTIAL AND INTEGRAL
TO MY WORK.
I USE IT AS MUCH AS I CAN, BUT LACK OF TIME PREVENTS PROPER PLANNING FOR ALL THE IT I WOULD LIKE TO DO.
I USE IT EVERYDAY AND AM CONSTANTLY LOOKING FOR NEW AND EXCITING WAYS AND TOOLS TO ENGAGE MY STUDENTS IN THE
MOST PRACTICAL AND INFORMATIVE WAY.
I USE MY IWB DAILY, MY CLASS IS BLOGGING REGULARLY AND WE HAVE STARTED TO DO SOME PODCASTS. I USE THE INTERNET AND
COMPUTERS CONSTANTLY WHILE TEACHING HOWEVER WHILST I AM CONFIDENT IN THE APPLICATIONS I ALREADY USE I KNOW THERE
ARE MANY OTHERS WAYS I COULD USE ICT IN MY CLASS.
I WISH I HAD MORE TIME TO ATTEND PD, OR READ UP ON INFORMATION SO THAT I COULD USE MORE IT IN THE CLASSROOM. IT IS A
SLOW PROCESS FOR ME.
I WOULD BE MORE PROFICIENT IF I HAD DIRECT ACCESS FROM MY OWN CLASSROOM.
I WOULD LIKE MORE TRAINING IN NETWORK MAINTAINANCE.




                                       education.au 2008                                                   Page 86 of 160
I WOULD LIKE TO BE AN IT SPECIALIST TEACHER AS I HAVE AN IT DEGREE AND TEACHING DIPLOMA BUT THE JOB ALLOCATION SYSTEM
WILL NOT ALLOW ME TO UTILISE THESE SKILLS UNTIL I HAVE A 3 YEAR CONTRACT. THIS YEAR I DID NOT EVEN GET A JOB OFFER TO
WORK FOR ANY OF THE SCHOOLS ON MY LIST!
I WOULD LIKE TO FIND RESOURCES WHICH MATCH WITH THE COURSES WHICH ARE TO BE TAUGHT IN SENIOR CLASSES.
I WOULD LIKE TO USE ICT MORE IN MY TEACHING AND LEARNING TO BETTER PREPARE THE STUDENTSFOR FURTHER LEARNING IN
THEIR FUTURE. HOWEVER THE COMPUTERS AT SCHOOL ARE LIMITED IN THEIR NUMBER AND NOT ALWAYS RELIABLE WHEN WE GET
TO THE LAB. I NEED TO FURTHER DEVELOP MY OWN KNOWLEDGE TO MAKE THE VERY BEST OF ALL THE RESOURCES AVAILABLE ON
THE INTERNET. I CAN THEN PASS THIS ON TO THE STUDENTS. I LIVE IN RURAL WESTERN AUSTRALIA AND THE OPPORTUNITY TO
ATTEND PD ON THIS SUBJECT IS VERY LIMITED.
I WOULD LIKE TO USE IT MORE
I WOULD USE IT MORE IF I COULD RELY ON THE CONNECTION AND IF I COULD EASILY FIND RELEVANT INFORMATION.
ICT CO-ORDINATER AT SCHOOL, CURRENTLY GOING INTO OTHER CLASSROOMS AND SHOWING THEM GOOD PRACTICE AND HOW TO
INTEGRATE ICT N ALL LEARNING AREAS
ICT IS A GREAT TOOL BUT ALSO CAN BE A GREAT TIME WASTER, LACK OF TECHNICAL SUPPORT IN SCHOOLS PUTS GREAT PRESSURE
ON LIMITED TIME AND RESOURCES.
ICT IS A WONDERFUL, NATURAL MOTIVATION FOR THE STUDENTS IN MY CLASS AND CAN HELP THE STUDENTS TO RESEARCH,
CREATE AND ULTIMATELY PRESENT THEIR WORK TO A HIGHER AND MORE INTERESTING STANDARD FOR BOTH THEM AND THEIR
PEERS.
ICT IS INTEGRAL TO MY WORK. I HAVE A RESPONSIBILITY AS AN EDUCATOR AND AN ADMINISTRATOR TO HAVE EXPERTISE IN
THELATEST TECHNOLOGIES. IT INTERESTS ME. IT FRUSTRATES ME.
ICT IS VERY BROAD. I TRY TO TEACH SPECIFIC COMPUTER SKILLS AND EXPOSE CHILDREN TO RELEVENT SUBJECT CONTENT THAT
WILL HELP/PROVIDE THEM WITH ALTERNATIVES TO RESEARCHING, COMMUNICATING AND PRESENTING THERE LEARNING
EXPERIENCES.
IF I COULD ACCESS RELEVANT PD IT WOULD BE EVEN GREATER......
I'M BAD AT IT ESPECIALLY HELPING STUDENTS FIND RELEVANT INFORMATION
I'M LEARNING ALL THE TIME. I WOULD LIKE BETTER ACCESS TO PD BUT I HAVE FOUND THAT TIME IS THE MAIN OBSTACLE AS I HAVE A
LIFE OUTSIDE THE SCHOOL! PD POINT PD HAS BEEN HELPFUL. I STARTED OUT TEACHING WITHOUT EVER HAVING USED A COMPUTER,
NOW I'M HELPING OTHERS - IT'S ONGOING DEVELOPMENT!
I'M LEARNING BY DOING - THE KIDS SOMETIMES LEAD ME!
IN MY OPINION FOR ICT TO BE USED IN EARLY CHILDHOOD EACH CHILD NEEDS ACCESS TO THIER OWN COMPUTER AS THEY CAN NOT
BE SET OTHER TASKS TO DO BY THEMSELVES AND HAVE VERY LIMITED WAIT TIME.
IT CAN BE QUITE LIMITING IN PRIMARY SCHOOLS AS I HAVE ONLT 2 COMPUTERS IN MY CLASSROOM. THE LIBRARY HAS A BANK OF 20
COMPUTERS B AND A INTERACTIVE SMART BOARD BUT THIS MEANS UPROOTING THE CLASS TO ACCESS THESE IF/WHEN AVAILABLE
AND THEY ARE NOT PRACTICAL FOR EVERYDAY ICT FOR MY CLASS-SUPERVISION ISSUES
IT HAS BECOME AN INTEGRAL PART OF THE WAY I OPERATE
IT IS AN INCREDIBLE TOOL FOR FACILITATING STUDENT LEARNING. IT LEVELS THE PLAYING FIELD FOR STUDENTS WITH SPECIAL
LEARNING NEEDS.
IT IS CENTRAL TO ADMINISTRATION. MUCH WORK IS DONE ONLINE, AND EMAIL IS THE PRINCIPAL METHOD OF COMMUNICATION FROM
DET TO ITS EMPLOYEES. CONSTANTLY NEED TO USE ICT SKILLS AND KNOWLEDGE IN THE WORKPLACE.
IT IS CONSTANTLY USED IN MY LESSONS AND IN MY PROFESSIONAL AND PERSONAL LEARNING
IT IS MY ROLE TO PASS INFORMATION ABOUT ONLINE RESOURCES TO SCHOOL EDUCATORS. I NEED TO BE PROFICIENT AND
KNOWLEDGEABLE ABOUT WHAT I AM PRESENTING AND HOW I AM PRESENTING IT.
IT IS WHAT I DO EVERY DAY, HOWEVER I DO NEED TO BECOME MORE INNOVATIVE IN MY USEAGE.
IT WOULD BE GOOD TO BE ABLE TO ACCESS BASIC PD
IT WOULD BE GREAT TO HAVE TRAINING IN THIS RESOURCE. BUT WHEN DO WE HAVE THE TIME WHEN WE ARE ALREADY
OVERWORKED
ITS HARD TO KNOW WHICH THINGS TO FOCUS ON. YOU CAN'T DO EVERYTHING
ITS OK, BUT HARD TO DEVELOP FURTHER AS A TEACHING TOOL DUE TO LACK OF RESOURCES
I'VE RECENTLY ACQUIRED WIRELESS BROADBAND BUT AM WAITING FOR A NEW LAPTOP TO BEGIN USING MY SCHOOL LAPTOP AT
HOME AS I NO LONGER HAVE A DESKTOP. I NEED MORE TIME TO DEVELOP RESOURCES AND ACQUIRE EXPERTISE AS MUCH OF THE
NEW MATERIAL NEEDS "PLAY TIME" TO BECOME PROFICIENT.
KEEN TO DEVELOP FURTHER AND ALSO DEVELOP THE SKILLS OF STAFF AND STUDENTS
LIMITED AT THIS STAGE




                                      education.au 2008                                                  Page 87 of 160
LIMITED BY OUTDATED COMPUTER SOFTWARE, LACK OF SUITABLE SEATING, COST OF SITE LICENCING FOR SOME PROGRAMS
PROHIBATIVE, ONLY 1 COMPUTER IN A CLASS OF 20! LOTS OF LIMITATIONS CAUSING FRUSTRATION.
LIMITED COMPUTERS MAKES PLANNING ACTIVITIES DIFFICULT AS THOSE ON THE COMPUTERS DISTRACT OTHERS DOING DIFFERENT
ACTIVITIES.
LIMITED USE REFLECTS LIMITED PROVISION, AND UNRELIABILITY, OF HARDWARE; AND STUDENT AGE GROUP, WHICH NEEDS INTENSE
SUPPORT WITH BOTH HARDWARE AND SOFTWARE.
MAINLY ADMINISTRATIVE PURPOSES IN THE ROLE OF PRINCIPAL
MINIMAL DUE TO LACK OF RESOURCES
MORE STUDENT ACCESS WOULD INCREASE MY ABILITY TO USE MORE ICT IN DAILY CURRICULUM
MY ROLE IS PRIMARILY TO WORK TO CHANGE TEACHER'S USE OF ICT AS A LEARNING TOOL FOR AND BY STUDENTS
N/A
NEED MORE TIME TO PLAY AND DISCOVER WHAT CAN BE ACHIEVED BY USING ICT TO ASSIST LEARNING WITH CHN.
NEED TO KNOW MORE POSSIBILITIES
NO
NO I CHOOSE NOT TO COMMENT
NO TIME TO PRACTICE FOR UPGRADING SKILLS
NOT ENOUGH IN SCHOOL TRAINING FOR TEACHERS
NOT ENOUGH TIME TO CONTINUALLY KEEP UP TO DATE WITH NEW MATERIAL ETC
OUR SCHOOL IS FORTUNATE ENOUGHT TO HAVE ELECTRONIC WHTEBOARDS WHICH I USE EVERY CHANCE I GET. WE ARE A VERY
WELL RESOURCED SMALL GOVERNMENT SCHOOL WITH A LARGE NUMBER OF COMPUTERS FOR STUDENTS WHERE ICT IS A MAIN
FOCUS EVERY YEAR.
OVER THE LAST FEW YEARS I HAVE ENDEAVOURED THROUGH MY PERFORMANCE MANAGEMENT AND PERSONAL COMMITTMENT TO
EDUCATION TO IMPROVE MY IT SKILLS. I ENCOURAGE CHN TO USE COMPUTERS WHERE POSSIBLEEVEN IF IT IS INCIDENTALLY IN THE
CLASSROOM AND ALSO FOR RESEARCH PURPOSES. I SPEND MANY HOURS OUTSIDE OF SCHOOL RESEARCHING AND COLLECTING
SNIPPETS OF INFO FROM A VARIETY OF WEB SITES. I ALSO TAKE DIGITAL PHOTOGRAPHS AS A WAY OF DOCUMENTING WHAT CHN
HAVE ACHIEVED. CHARTS AND WRITING IS OFTEN TYPED BY WORD.
PROVIDES EASE FOR AND OF LESSON PREPARATION ACCESS TO WIDE VARIETY OF INFORMATION ADN RESOURCES ALTERNATIVE
MEDIUM FOR DIFFERENT LEARNING STYLES
RESTRICTED BY MY LACK OF IT KNOWLEDGE.
SOFTWARE USED BY CENTRAL AUTHORITIES NEED TO BE MORE SEAMLESS, SIMPLE AND EFFECIENT FOR SYSTEMIC REPORTING.
STILL QUTIE LIMITED IN TERMS OF WHAT I ACCESS AND USE IT FOR
STUDENTS USE ICT AS A TOOL FOR LEARNING. OUTCOMES ARE ACHIEVED BETTER WITH THE USE OF ICT
SUPPORT NEEDS TO BE GIVEN IN MY WORKPLACE/ WORK TIME FOR ME TO KEEP EVEN MINUTELY IN FRONT OF WHAT IS BEING
OFFERED ONLINE. I CAN ONLY ACHIEVE A MINIMAL AMOUNT IN MY PERSONAL TIME!
TEACHING IN A REMOTE ABORIGINAL COMMUNITY, THE INTERNET IS A SOURCE OF RESOURCES AND INFORMATION THAT STUDENTS
DON’T OTHERWISE HAVE ACCESS TO. IT ALSO PROVIDES STUDENTS WITH A VARIETY OF WAYS TO LEARN BASIC, REPETITIVE
CONCEPTS, THROUGH INTERACTIVE AND INNOVATIVE RESOURCES.
THE BARRIER IS MY LACK OF EXPERTISE. WHEN THINGS ARE GOING WELL ALL IS FINE BUT I'M NOT GOOD AT TROUBLE SHOOTING
WHEN PROBLEMS ARISE.
THERE ARE AREAS WHERE I AM STRONG (PUBLISHER, INTERNET) & AREAS WHERE I AM WEAK (SMART BOARDS, DIGITAL CAMERAS)
THEY ARE GETTING BETTER
THOUGH EXPLORING NEW USE - THINGS LIKE USE OF MOBILE PHONES FOR INCORPORATING LOCATIONAL GAMING INTO THINGS LIKE
MAPPING, USE OF GIS ETC. - THESE THINGS TAKE UP A LOT OF TIME AND THERE IS NOT NECESSARILY A LOT OF TIME IN WHICH TO DO
SO. CONSEQUENTLY, MUCH TIME IS SPENT AT HOME ORGANISING, RESEARCHING AND PLANNING THESE THINGS. WHEN USED
SUCCESSFULLY, OTHERS WANT TO LEARN SO YOU THEN SPEND MORE OF YOUR TIME PD STAFF! THOUGH THIS IS GREAT IN THE
LONG RUN, IT CAN BE WEARING.
THROUGH A LARGE AMOUNT OF PD AND PERSONAL USE I HAVE BECOME QUITE PROFICIENT AT USING INTERNET TO MAKE A REAL
DIFFERENCE TO TEACHING/LEARNING AT OUR SCHOOL THROUGH THE INQUIRY LEARNING PEDAGOGY. I HAVE ALSO FOUND THAT
THE ACTIVITIES DEVISED CAN BE TAILORED TO MEET INDIVIDUAL NEEDS OF STUDENTS AND ENABLE A TRUE OUTCOMES-FOCUSSED
CLASSROOM. I ALWAYS USE INTERNET NOW AS THE NUMBER ONE STARTING POINT FOR RESEARCHING AND FINDING OUT. YOU CAN
FIND INFORMATION ABOUT ANY ASPECT OF TEACHING/LEARNING.
TIME IS THE GREATEST BARRIER
TIME TIME TIME




                                       education.au 2008                                                 Page 88 of 160
TIME TO LEARN AND USE ICT IS THE BIGGEST OBSTACLE
USE ICT AS A CURRICULAR TOOL TO ENHANCE LEARNING EXPERIENCES OF STUDENTS TO PROVIDE MOTIVATION AND PURPOSE
USE/CREATE WEBQUESTS AND DIGITAL RESOURCES FOR STUDENTS. USE IT FOR MANAGING MY ASSESSMENT OF STUDENT
PERFORMANCE. CREATED A BLOG FOR OPEN COMMS WITH PARENT/COMMUNITY.
USED EXTENSIVELY TO ENHANCE LEARNING FOR MY STUDENTS
USING AS A LEARNING MEDIUM MUCH MORE THAN BEFORE
VERY COMPETENT
WHILE I AM TRYING TO BE A LEADER IN THE IMPLEMENTATION OF ICT INTO TEACHING PEDAGOGY IT IS A FRUSTRATING TASK
WITHOUT THE FINANCIAL SUPPORT. OUR SCHOOL RECEIVES AN ICT GRANT WHICH IS ADEQUATE TO PAY FOR SUPPORT AND
MAINTENANCE OF EXISTING INFRASTRUCTURE. IT IS ADEQUARE TO SUPPORT THE PURCHASE OF NEW EQUIPMENT, NEW
PROGRAMS, NEW INFRASTRUCTURE AND TRAINING. IT IS NOT ADEQUATE TO DO BOTH SO EVERYTHING SUFFERS LEADING TO
UNRELIABLE EQUIPMENT, GREAT IDEAS UNFUNDED AND LOW MOTIVATION OF STAFF.
WITH MY INVOLVEMENT IN AN ONLINE MENTORING COURSE I CAN SEE THE POTENTIAL OF ICT USE TO FURTHER MY WORK IN
SUPPORTING TEACHERS.
WORKING WITH SCHOOLS TO IMPLEMENT NEW TECHNOLOGIES AND PRACTICES WITH ICT
WOULD LIKE TO BE MORE UPSKILLED IN MY OWN KNOWLEDGE, ESPECIALLY SO THAT MY SESSIONS WITH MY STUDENTS WILL BE AS
EFFICIENT AND WORTHWHILE FOR THEM AS POSSIBLE.
WOULD LIKE TO DO A COURSE THAT WOULD EXPLAIN ALL THE TERMS AND HOW TO USE INTERNET AND ICT IN CLASS BETTER
WOULD LIKE TO USE IT MORE IN MY CLASSROOM BUT DO NOT HAVE ENOUGH COMPUTERS TO EFFECTIVELY USE SOME OF THE
LEARNING OBJECTS I HAVE FOUND THAT WOULD BE BENEFICIAL FOR MY CLASS.



Q15.                  What do you see as the greatest opportunities in the use of Internet services and
                      tools for teaching and learning?

ACT
ICT SHOULD ENABLE STUDENTS TO LEARN WHEN AND HOW THEY PREFER AND ALSO       ENABLE THOSE DELIVERING CLASSES (OR
SERVICES) TO PROVIDE THE VARIOUS OPTIONS TO ENABLE THE FORMER TO HAPPEN.



NSW
1. STUDENTS FROM DIVERSE BACKGROUNDS AND IN REMOTE AREAS HAVE MORE AND MORE ACCESS TO EDUCATION. 2. THERE IS
AN IMMENSE RANGE OF RESOURCES IMMEDIATELY AVAILABLE FOR TEACHING AND LEARNING
1. THE AMOUNT OF INFORMATION THAT CAN BE ACCESSED EASILY 2. BEING ABLE TO GET STUDENTS TO APPROACH LEARNING IN
NEW WAYS
A) IT SERVES TO MINIMISE AND IN SOME CASES ELIMINATE BARRIERS TO INTERACTION AND ENABLES LEARNING TO TAKE PLACE
OUTSIDE THE CLASSROOM. B) THE WIDE RANGE OF AVAILABLE WEB-BASED APPLICATIONS PROVIDES USERS WITH A MASSIVE
POOL TO CHOOSE FROM. THEREFORE THERE IS A TREMENDOUS AMOUNT OF OPPORTUNITY AND FLEXIBILITY FOR STUDENTS AND
EDUCATORS TO EMPOWER AND TRANSFORM THE STUDENT LEARNING EXPERIENCE (E.G. PLES AND PLNS); C) USE OF MIXED MEDIA
CAN BE USED TO CATER TO A VARIETY OF LEARNING STYLES.
ABILITY TO ACCESS INFORMATION & COMMUNICATE WITH STUDENTS AND/OR COLLEAGUES ANYWHERE. POSSIBILITY OF CREATING
GREATER INDEPENDENCE IN LEARNING.
ABILITY TO CONNECT WITH STUDENTS
ABILITY TO REACH MANY STUDENTS AT ONCE. ABILITY TO ENRICH DELIVERY OF CONTENT WITH RELEVANT RESOURCES.
OPPORTUNITY TO OFFER A CHOICE FOR STUDENTS IN THEIR LEARNIG/DELIVERY MODE.
ACCESS ANYTIME ANYWHERE, NEW INTERACTIVE TOOLS BETWEEN EDUCATOR AND LEARNER, DIRECT INTERACTIONS
ACCESS FOM SEVERAL LOCATIONS, SINGLE SOURCE OF INFORMATION TO KEEP UPDATED.
ACCESS TO A COMMUNITY OF SCHOLARS ACROSS THE WORLD; MAKING BETTER USE OF TEACHING TIME, ENHANCING REFLECTIVE
TEACHING AND PEDAGOGICAL OUTCOMES.
ACCESS TO APPROPRIATE RESOURCES
ACCESS TO ONLINE MATERIAL.
ACCESS TO PUBLICATIONS, WORKING PAPERS, DATA, COURSE MATERIALS FROM ACROSS THE WORLD

ACCESS TO TEACHING FOR STUDENTS STUDYING AT A DISTANCE
ACCESS TO TIMELY, INTEGRATED AND TAILORED INFORMATION AND RESOURCES (INCLUDING EXPERTS) FOR THE BENEFIT OF STAFF
AND STUDENTS
ACCESSIBILITY - PARTICULARLY FOR REMOTE AND ISOLATED EXTERNAL STUDENTS - TECHNOLOGIES LIKE ELLUMINATE MAKE THEM

FLEXIBILITY, ADDING VALUE, NEW METHODS OF LEARNING SKILLS
FLEXIBILITY. BREADTH OF RESOURCES.
FLEXIBILITY; REACHING MULTIPLE COHORTS; FACILTITATING TEAM TEACHING; EARLY RECOGNITION OF AT-RISK STUDENTS .... THE
LIST COULD GO ON
FLEXIBLE & MULTI MODE DELIVERY OF CONTENT
FLEXIBLE DELIVERY OPTIONS THAT DON'T DISCRIMINATE AGAINST THE EXTERNAL STUDENT; RAPID ACCESS TO COURSE MATERIALS
(AVOIDS THE PITFALLS OF RELYING ON A THIRD PART TO SEND OUT STUDY MATERIALS ETC), RAPID AND RELIABLE COMMUNICATION.
WHEN I DID MY UNDERGRAD DEGREE WE HAD TO SEARCH PAPER INDEXES FOR JOURNALS LABORIOUSLY BY ALL THE KEYWORDS TO
FIND PAPERS FOR ASSIGNMENTS. THEN WE HAD TO GO TO A DIFFERENT CATALOGUE TO SEE IF THE LIBRARY SUBSCRIBED (MOSTLY
NOT). ONLINE SEARCHING IS WONDERFUL/TIME-SAVING.
FLEXIBLE DELIVERY WHICH MATCHES THE LIFESTYLES OF OUR STUDENTS
FOR OUTSIDE OF CLASSROOM WORK, ONLINE TUTORIALS, SHARING ARTICLES AND OTHER INFORMATION WITH STUDENTS
GOOD AND RELEVANT WEBSITES TO KEEP US ABREAST OF NEW INFORMATION.
GREATER FLEXIBILITY OF DELIVERY OF CONTENT. FOCUS FACE TO FACE TIME ON HIGH VALUE WORK
HAVING TAUGHT ONLINE COURSES FOR 3 YEARS, I STILL BELIEVE THAT FACE-TO-FACE TUTORIALS ARE BETTER- THE INTERACTION
IS SIMPLY OF HIGHER QUALITY. I THINK THE GREATEST USE FOR INTERNET IS TO FIND RESOURCES- VIDEOS, CASE STUDIES,
EXCHANGE INFORMATION AND EXPERIENCE WITH OTHER LECTURERS ETC.
HIGHLY IMPORTANT FOR COMMINCATION AND EXCHANGE OF DOCS OR IDEAS
HOPEFULLY WILL PROVIDE NEW OPPORTUNITIES FOR TEACHING AND RESERCH AND COMPENSTE TO SOME EXTENT FOR THE EVER
DECREASING RESOURCING OF AUSTRALIAN EDUCATION.
I DON'T TEACH HOWEVER, THE INTERNET IS QUICK AND PROVIDES IMMEDIATE INFORMATION TO STUDENTS
I STILL BELIEVE THAT THE WESTERN ACADEMIC SYSTEM OF LEARNING IS BASED ON DIALOGUE BETWEEN LIVING HUMAN BEINGS.
I THINK I OUTLINED SOME OF THESE IN Q14. E.G. INCREASED EFFICIENCY, MORE EFFECTIVE, REDUCED TRAVEL, GREATER ABILITY
TO ENGAGE GEOGRAPHICALLY DIVERSE STAFF AND STUDENTS.
I THINK THE GREATEST POTENTIAL IS TO USE INTERNET FOR STUDENTS PARTICIPATION AND COLLABORATION. I AM EXCITED ABOUT
THE POSSIBILITIES FOR STUDENTS TO CREATE CONTENT, SHARE IDEAS AND BUILD COMMUNITIES OF LEARNERS.
IMMEDIACY AND KEEPING ON PAR WITH URBAN EDUCATION CENTRES
IMMEDIACY. AVAILABILITY EVERYWHERE (HOME, UNI, TRAVELLING).
IMMEDIATE SEARCH FACILITY, APPLICATIONS ARE READILY AVAILABLE IN THE CLASSROOM
IN COLLABORATIVE COMMUNITIES OF PRACTICE AND KNOWLEDGE GENERATION. MOVING THE UNIVERSITY SECTOR BEYOND ITS
CURRENT ROLE AS KNOWLEDGE HOLDERS AND INHERITORS OF TRADITION TO INNOVATIVE GENERATORS OF IDEAS. SOUNDS
PRETTY DEEP AND MEANINGFUL DOESN'T IT? GOOD LUCK TRANSCENDING THE INNATE HUMAN NEED FOR POWER.
IN GEOLOGY MY AREA IT IS THE USE OF MOVIES TO SHOW REAL TIME ACTION SUCH AS VOLCANOES, TSUNAMI'S AND EARTHQUAKES
AND THE LIKE TO SHOW THE CATASTROPHIC EFFECTS OF THESE GEOLOGICAL PROCESSES AND THEN TO DEVELOP THE IDEA THAT
THESE THINGS HAPPENED IN THE PAST......... I'D LIKE TO MAKE THE LEARNING OF MAPS AND 3 DIMENSIONS MORE INTERACTIVE SO
STUDENTS CAN MORE EAILY UNDERSTAND. I HAVE STARTED DOWN THIS ROUTE BUT THERE IS SO MUCH MORE THAT COULD BE
DONE. ICT OFFERS THE TOOLS TO PUT INTERACTIVE MAPPIN
INCLUDING ALL STUDENTS IRRESPECTIVE OF LOCATION IN A SINGLE COHORT CLASS. THIS ENABLES GREATER TRANSPARENCY IN
THE LEEARNING PROCES AND FOSTERS A COMMUNITY OF LEARNING THAT IS VERY POWERFUL.
INCREASED ACCESS TO RESOURCES
INCREASED COMMUNICATION LEADING TO INCREASED ENGAGEMENT
INCREASING AVAILABILITY OF INFROMATION
INDEPENDENT LEARNING ON-LINE LEARNING AND COMMUNICATION ASSESSMENT TASKS AND ASSIGNMENTS COMPLETED AND / OR
SUBMITTED ON LINE TO MANAGE LARGE CLASSES, MOTIVATE STUDENTS TO WORK AT THEIR OWN PACE AND BE INDEPENDENT
LEARNERS.
INSTANT ACCESS.
INTERACTION WITH STUDENTS - MODELLING OF REAL-TIME CALSS ROOM EXPERIENCES
INTERACTIVE ANIMATIONS OF DIFFICULT CONCEPTS AND EASE OF COMMUNICATION WITH EXTERTNAL STUDENTS
INTERNET SERVICES AND TOOLS FOR TEACHING AND LEARNING ENABLE TRUE INTERACTION AND ENGAGEMENT BETWEEN
FACILITATOR & STUDENTS IN ANY LOCATION. GIVES GREATER CHOICE TO STUDENTS ON WHERE AND WITH WHOM THEY STUDY. THE
CHANGE IN ROLE OF ACADEMICS TO "TEACHERS" INSTEAD OF "FONTS OF KNOWLEDGE" IS A GREAT THING (WHEN IT HAPPENS!)

INTERNET SERVICES BREAK THE BARRIERS OF TIME AND DISTANCE. STUDENTS FROM ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD CAN ACCESS OUR
COURSES, AND COMMUNICATE WITH US. MY CONTACT WITH STUDENTS VIA WEBMAIL MEANS THEY ARE NOT INTERRUPTED AT WORK
OR IN PRIVATE TIME BY PHONE CALLS.
IT ALLOWS FOR EASY COMMUNICATION BETWEEN RESEARCHERS IN DIFFERENT PARTS OF THE WORLD.
IT AVOIDS THE CONSTRAINTS OF HAVING TO USE SPECIFIC TIMES FOR EDUCATION PRPOSES
KEEPING IN TOUCH WITH STUDENTS, REMAINING AHEAD OF THE GAME, USING TECHNOLOGIES THAT STUDENTS USE - IMPROVES
TEACHER/STUDENT RELATIONSHIP
LINK ASSESSMENT TO REAL WORLD ENVIRONMENT
LIVE INTERACTIVE CLASSROOMS. DYNAMIC TEACHING AND LEARNING. APPLICATION SHARING. OPPORTUNITIES FOR STUDENTS TO
FORM ONLINE LEARNING GROUPS. REDUCES THE TYRANNY OF DISTANCE, ENABLES PARENTS AND PEOPLE WITH JOBS TO HAVE
ACCESS TO THE SAME EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITIES AS OTHERS. ENHANCING THE LEARNING EXPERIENCE FOR BOTH INTERNAL
AND EXTERNAL STUDENTS.
MAGNIFYING LEARNING
MAKING KNOWLEDGE MORE ACCESSIBLE AND ALIVE FOR DISTANCE STUDENTS.
MAKING RESOURCES AVAILABLE TO STUDENTS
MAKING TOOLS MORE USER FRIENDLY
MORE COLLABORATIVE WORK BETWEEN STUDENTS
MORE CONTENT AVAILABLE WITH ONGOING DIGITISATION FOR RESEARCH PURPOSES - MORE FLEXIBILITY FOR PEOPLE IN WORK AND

PROVIDING AN EFFECTIVE PLATFORM FOR THE EXCHANGE OF INFORMATION AND ENHANCEMENT OF CRITICAL THINKING THROUGH
INTERNET FACILITIES ACROSS SPACE. ENHANCEMENT OF DATA STORAGE.
PROVIDING CREATIVE WAYS FOR STUDENTS TO LEARN. PROVIDING DISTANCE AND ON CAMPUS STUDENTS WITH ENGAGING AND
INTERACTIVE LEARNING OPPORTUNITIES.
PROVIDING INFORMATION TO STUDENTS EFFICIENTLY: ANNOUNCEMENTS, RESOURCES ALLOWING STUDENTS TO INTERACT WITH

SENDING LEARNING MATERIALS TO STUDENTS TO SAVE PAPER AND THE SPEED IN REPLIES TO GRAPHICAL TYPE QUESTIONS WHIC
ARE DIFFICULT OVER THE PHONE
SHARED RESOURCES ACROSS OTHER UNIVERSITYIES TEACHING SIMILIAR CONTENT - VIRTUAL MEETINGS AND GUEST SPEAKERS
FROM AROUND THE WORLD AS "CLASSROOM VISITORS"
SHARING INFORMATION
SIMPLY ANOTHER MEANS OF IMPROVING LEARNING OPPORTUNITIES. ALSO THE ABILITY OF STUDENTS TO OBTAIN A GREATER
ACCESS TO RESOURCES AND IDEAS. CERTAINLY MEANS THAT LEARNING CAN BE MORE FLEXIBLE
SOCIAL COMPUTING AS A LEARNING AND TEACHING CULTURE
SOCIAL NETWORKING AND WEB 2 GENERALLY
SPEED; BREADTH OF INFORMATION AVAILABLE
SPREAD OF INFORMATION AND ABILITY TO COMMUNICATE REMOTELY
STUDENT ASSESSMENTS
STUDENTS AND I CAN FIND THINGS READILY.
STUDENTS SELF MANAGEMENT OF ENROLMENT ETC
SUPPORT FOR F2F
SUPPORT FOR THE PRACTICAL LEARNING EXPERIENCES.
THE ANSWERS TO Q14 BASICALLY SUM IT UP
THE CHANCE TO USE WEB 2 TECHNOLOGIES THAT ALLOW STUDENTS TO BECOME CONTENT CREATORS, THE OPPORTUNITY TO
ENGAGE MORE FULLY WITH EXTERNAL STUDENTS BOTH IN THE USE OF COMMUNICATION TECHNOLOGY AND MULTIMEDIA
THE  INTERNET HAS THE POTENTIAL TO TRANSFORM HOW KNOWLEDGE IS CREATED AND SHARED. FOR EXAMPLE, SOCIAL
NETWORKING AND OTHER ONLINE TOOLS, IF INTEGRATED INTO LEARNING ACTIVITIES (ON AND OFF-CAMPUS) MEAN THAT
UNIVERSITY TEACHING IS NO LONGER ABOUT ACADEMIC RESEARCHERS TRANSMITTING WHAT IS IN THEIR (INDIVIDUAL) HEADS INTO
THE HEADS OF STUDENTS.
THE INTERNETIS THE MEDIUM OF CHOICE FOR STUDENTS; THEREFORE IT PROVIDES THE GREATEST OPPORTUNITY FOR US TO
ENGAGE WITH THEM. STUDENTS EXPECT TO HAVE ONLINE RESOURCES AVAILABLE TO THEM. IT IS ESPECIALLY USEFUL FOR
STUDENTS WHO ARE STUDYING EXTERNALLY AND THOSE INTERNAL STUDENTS WHO HAVE LIMITED TIME TO COME TO CAMPUS.
THE INTERNET PROVIDES FOR A '24/7' EXPERIENCE, WITH ACCESS TO CONTENT, ASYNCHRONOUS COMMNICATION AND
ENGAGEMENT WITH LEARNING ACTIVITIES AVAILABLE TO LEARNERS WHENEVER AND WHEREVER THEY ARE.
THERE IS STILL A LOT OF ROOM FOR IMPROVING THE RELIABILITY AND EASE OF USE OF BASIC SYSTEMS FOR RUNNING COURSES.
TO MAKE LECTURES MORE INTERESTING BY USING THE INTERNET AS AN AUDIO-VISUAL AID.
TWO-WAY COMMUNICATION WITH STUDENTS EASY ACCESS TO REFEREED SCIENTIFIC LITERATURE
UNLIMITED ACCESS TO INFORMATION AND RESOURCES
UPDATED INFORMATION
VERY LIMITED FOR TEACHING, IT HELPS SOME WITH ACCESS IE THROUGH ON LINE LECTURES BUT SITTING AND READING A BOOK
AND TRYING TO MAKE SENSE OF IT IS PRETTY MUCH THE NAME OF THE GAME AND IT OFFERS LIMITED HELP FOR THIS LABOUR.
VIDEO BROADCASTING OF LECTURES, E-LEARNING....
VIRTUAL CLASSROOMS FOR DISTANCE ED STUDENTS
WEB 2 TECHNOLOGIES ARE FINALLY STARTING TO DELIVER WHAT ONLINE LEARNING HAS ALWAYS PROMISED. EASY TO USE
TECHNOLOGIES THAT ANYONE CAN USE. SOME ARE EVEN FOCUSED SPECIFICALLY ON EDUCATION...
WHOLE NEW WORLD OF DIFFERENT WAYS TO INTERACT, PROCESS, EXPLORE, STIMULATE. NEW WAYS TO ADDRESS DIFFERENCES
OF LEARNING STYLE/PREFERENCES, MANAGE THE AVAILABILITY OF TIME AROUND OTHER LIFE PRIORITIES, AND INCREASE
EFFICIENCES.
WORKING IN AN INTERNATIONAL ARENA WE ARE ABLE TO IMMEDIATELY DRAW ON RESOURCES FROM OUR COLLEAGUES (AND VIS
VERSA)AND THIS CAN BOTH EXPAND OUR TEACHING CAPACITY AND OUR STUDENT BASE.
YOU CAN FIND VALUABLE INFORMATION THAT ARE USEFUL FOR STUDENTS AS WELL AS FOR STAFF


NT
ABLE TO ACCESS INFORMATION, RESOURCES AND OPINIONS FROM ALL AROUND THE WORLD.            ABLE TO CREATE ONLINE
COMMUNITIES WITH PEOPLE FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD.
ACCESS ANYWHERE.




                                     education.au 2008                                              Page 93 of 160
ACCESS TO INFO.
ACCESS TO INFORMATION AT OUR FINGERTIPS
ACCESS TO INFORMATION ON AN INTERNATIONAL SCALE
ACCESS TO INFORMATION, SHARING INFORMATION/RESOURCES, "CLOSING THE GAP" NO MATTER WHERE YOU LIVE
ACCESS TO UP-TO-DATE INFORMATION FROM A VARIETY OF SOURCES. INSTANT GRATIFICATION FOR THE STUDENTS WHEN THEY
WANT TO FIND OUT ABOUT SOMETHING. STIMULATING ACTIVITIES ONLINE WHICH MOTIVATE STUDENTS.
ACCESSING ONLINE CONTENT THAT CAN BRING THE WORLDS BEST RESOURCES INTO OUR CLASSROOMS IS ONE OF THE MOST
POWERFUL IMPACTS OF THE INTERNET IN OUR SCHOOL. CREATING AN ONLINE PROFESSIONAL LIBRARY THAT CAN BE ACCESSED
INSTANTLY IS ONE OF THE MOST VALUABLE BENEFITS THAT THE INTERNET HAS BROUGHT TO OUR SCHOOL.
ACCESSING SERVICES
ACCESSING THE WORLD, STUDENTS ELSEWHERE OUTSIDE OF OUR SCHOOL. OUR SCHOOL IS MADE UP OF 13 MINI SCHOOLS THAT
ARE UP TO 500KM AWAY. WE ACCESS INTERSTATE SCHOOLS. USE VIDEO CONFERENCING AND EMAILS. GREAT RESEARCH TOOL
FOR ALL, ESP WHEN STUDENTS ARE TAUGHT COMPETENT WAYS TO USE THE SERVICE.
AN INCREASE IN ACCESSABILITY TO INFORMATION AND LEARNING FOR STUDENTS, WIDENING THEIR HORIZONS ACCESSING THE
WIDER WORLD PARTICULARLY FOR REMOTE INDIGENOUS SCHOOLING, AN INCREASE IN SUBJECT A LEARNING OPPORTUNITIES
ANY STUDENT WITH GOOD COMPUTER AND DIGITAL LITERACY SKILLS WILL BECOME AN INDEPENDENT LEARNER
CATERING FOR DIVERSITY OR STUDENT ABILITIES AND INTERESTS
COMMUNICATION WITH REMOTE STUDENTS AND THE REST OF THE WORLD ACCESS FOR INDIGENOUS REMOTE STUDENTS TO
RESOURCES, INFORMATION NOT AVAILABLE LOCALLY
COMPUTER IN THE CLASSROOM WITH ENOUGH BAND WITH
CONNECTIVITY FOR STUDENTS, SO THEY KNOW WHATS HAPPENING IN OTHER PARTS OF THE WORLD IS IMPORTANT - THEY CAN
INTERACT WITH OTHER COMMUNITIES - ARE SETTING UP RADIO BLOGGING THROUGH RADIOWAVES WHICH HAS INTERNATIONAL
MEMBERSHIP.
CURENT INFORMATION
DUE TO THE DISTANCE PARTICULARLY IN THE NT BETWEEN SERVICES I SEE THE INTERNET AS A WAY OF BRIDGING THE DISTANCE
AND ALLOWING FOR TEACHERS AND STUDENTS TO PARTICIPATE IN A WIDER VARIETY OF LEARNING OPPORTUNITIES.
EASE OF ACCESS TO RESOURCES IN THE CLASSROOM
EASY INFORMATION GATHERING
EXCITES TEACHERS RELUCTANT USERS AND ENGAGES STUDENTS
FREEING UP OF TIME RESRTICTED ACCESS TO LEARNING
GAINING UP TO DATE INFORMATION
GLOBALIZATION, PARTICIPATION (WEB 2.0), REAL LIFE CONTEXT FOR PRESENTATION AND RESEARCH
HOPEFULLY WHEN OUR CLASSROOMS HAVE COMPUTERS AND INTERENT WE CAN TEACH THROUGH OTHER MEDIUMS THAN THE ONES
WE ARE CURRENTLY USING. STUDENTS CAN RESEARCH USING THE INTERNET OR JUST BROWSE AND SEE PLACES/THINGS THEY
HAVE NOT HAD THE CHANCE TO SEE BEFORE. THEY COULD ALSO COMMUNICATE WITH STUDENTS OUTSIDE OF THEIR COMMUNITY.
I THINK IT ENGAGES STUDENTS AS THAT IS WHAT THEY ARE USED TO. MOST TEENAGERS KNOW MORE ABOUT THE INTERNET THAN
ADULTS AND I FIND IT REWARDING WHEN THEY CAN SHOW YOU THINGS THAT YOU DIDN'T KNOW. I LIKE TRYING TO BE ONE STEP
AHEAD OF THEM BUT FIND IT DIFFICULT AT TIMES. THE OPPORTUNITIES ARE ENDLESS AS STUDENTS HAVE THE ABILITY TO GO
ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD BY THE CLICK OF A BUTTON.
IN TEACHING LANGUAGE - WE NEED TO DOWNLOAD RESOURCES TO BACK UP ESL STRATEGIES - THAT IS USE OF VISUALS AND
GRAPHICS TO EXPLAIN TO CHILDREN WITH VERY LOW POOR LITERACY AND NUMERACY LEVELS - WHAT THE HELL WE ARE DOING -
THIS COULD ALSO BE EXPANDED TO SHOW CHILDREN HOW TO LOOK AFTER THEIR EQUIPMENT AND LEARN TO DISSECT COMPUTERS
AND PUT THEM BACK TOGETHER - SO FOCUS ON HARDWARE AND SOFTWARE SHOULD BE SHARED WITH THE INDIGENOUS CHILDREN I
WORK WITH, NOT KEPT FROM THEM.
INDIVIDUALISATION OF LEARNING
INTERACTIVE PROGRAMS THAT ENGAGE STUDENTS SUCH AS QUEST ATLANTIS, ALSO WEB BLOGGING SO WHEN STUDENTS TRAVEL
THEY CAN CONTINUE TO COMMUNICATE WITH US. MANY OF MY STUDENTS ALREADY ACCESS ONLINE GAMES, FACEBOOK AND OTHER
SITES, WATCH THE INTERACTION BETWEEN STUDENTS BOTH ONLINE AND IN SMALL GROUPS CROUDED AROUND SEVERAL
COMPUTERS PLANNING STRATERGIES ON HOW TO GAIN POINTS ETC. EVEN THOUGH THE CONTENT MAY SEEM INAPPROPRIATE THE
INTERACTION AND SKILLS ARE WORTHWHILE. WHEN ON BEING ABLE TO ENGAGE THEM
INTERACTIVE REOURCES AND VIDEOS OF THINGS THAT STUDENTS DON'T SEE IN THEIR AREA, RESEARCHING AND COMMUNICATING
WITH OTHERS.
IT CAN PROVIDE INDIVIDUALISED LEARNING TO AN EXTEND THAT IS HARD TO ACHIEVE WITHOUT IT




                                      education.au 2008                                            Page 94 of 160
IT IS UNTAPPED! THE AMOUNT OF TEACHING AND LEARNING RESOURCES AVAILABLE ON THE INTERNET IS AMAZING. BY UTILISING
THE WEBSITES, WEBTOOLS AND OTHER MEDIA WE ARE CATERING TO ALL LEARNING STYLES AND INDIVIDUALS.
IT MAKES THE WORLD SMALLER YET OPENS IT UP. CHILDREN LEARN THAT A COMPUTER IS NOT JUST A TOY TO PLAY GAMES BUT IT IS
A BORING THING TO USE IN SCHOOL YET ESSENTIAL AS IT IS ANOTHER MODE OF LEARNING.
KEEPS YOU TEACHING METHODOLOGIES AND STRATEGIES UPTODATE
MORE VARIETY AND DIFFERENT OPINIONS ABLE TO BE GIVEN
MUCH BROADER CHOICE OF INFORMATION
NETWORKING AND SHARING INFORMATION. ALSO IN MY AREA OF EDUCATION, SPECIAL EDUACTION, THE INTERNET IS TRUELY
INCLUSIVE - NO ONE CAN PRE JUDGE YOU BY WHAT YOU LOOK LIKE OR HOW YOU SPEAK. ICT IS AN INVALUABLE TOOL FOR OUR
STUDENTS - DONE PROPERLY IT CAN ALLOW THEM TO ACCESS LEARNING AND DEMONSTRATE WHAT THEY HAVE LEARNT.
NOT RELEVANT TO MY POSITION IN ADMINISTRATION.
ONLINE LEARNING IS ONE OF THE KEY AREAS THAT WILL OPEN AVENUES FOR A WIDE RANGE OF USERS WITH OUT MANY BARRIERS.
PROPER PLANNING AND IMPLEMENTATION OF ONLINE LEARNING PROGRAMS WILL ADDRESS THE CONCERNS OF A LARGE
PERCENTAGE OF ADULT LEARNERS AND YOUNG LEARNERS WHO ARE UNABLE TO ACCESS THE MAINSTREAM EDUCATION SYSTEM
FOR VARIOUS REASONS.
OPENING UP OPPORTUNITIES FOR LEARNING BEYOND THE CLASSROOM
PORTAL STYLE SOLUTIONS PROVIDE A HIGHLY EFFECTIVE WAY FOR TEACHERS TO CREATE AND MANAGE A CUSTOMISABLE ONLINE
LEARNING HUB/RESOURCE STORE FOR STUDENTS AND SHARE INFORMATION AND IDEAS WITH COLLEGES.
PROVIDE REAL TIME AND REAL LIFE ACCESS OPPORTUNITIES TO A GROUP WHO ARE IN CRITICAL NEED FOR IT.
PROVIDING ACCESS - ACCESSIBILITY! -TO INNOVATIVE, RECENT AND RELEVANT MATERIALS! FOR ALL STAFF AND STUDENTS
PROVIDING AUTHENTICITY OF CONTEXT IN WHICH TO EMBED LEARNING. STUDENTS SOMEHOW CONSIDER IT MORE 'REAL'.
SETTING UP TEACHING AND LEARNING COMMUNITIES, NOT ONLY WITHIN THE IMMIDIATE COMMUNITY, BUT BEYOND.
SHARING OF RESOURCES RATHER THAN RECREATING THE WHEEL
SOUND ICT PEDAGOGOY ENABLES THE EXTENSION OF STUDENT CRITICAL LITERACY AND HIGHER ORDER THINKING SKILLS
STUDENTS IN THIS VERY REMOTE SETTING HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO SEE WHAT IS IN THE WORLD BEYOND THEIR LITTLE
COMMUNITY.
TEACHING KIDS AT THEIR EXACT LEVEL OF NEED BY MO0DIFYING THE LO TO SUIT INDIVIDUAL STUDENTS
THE FACT THAT WE CAN FIND A VISUAL/INTERESTING SUPPORT FOR JUST ABOUT EVERYTHING ALLOWS US TO ENGAGE OUR
STUDENTS IN A WAY THAT SUITS THEIR LEARNING NEEDS. TODAY’S STUDENTS ARE SURROUNDED BY NEW TECHNOLOGIES AND IT IS
IMPORTANT THAT WE INCORPORATE THESE INTO OUR DAILY LESSONS.
THE INTERNET ALLOWS STUDENTS IN REMOTE CONTEXTS TO SEE THINGS BEYOND THEIR LIMITED WORLD
THE OPPORTUNITIES FOR ENGAGING STUDENTS IN THE CONTENT, ESPECIALLY MAKING IT MORE VISUAL AND INTERACTIVE.
INCREASING THE OPTIONS FOR PRESENTING WHAT STUDENTS HAVE LEARNT, AND KNOW.
THE SHARING OF INFORMATION FOR THE FORMATION OF NEW KNOWLEDGE
THE USE OF INTERNET SERVICES AND TOOLS FOR TEACHING AND LEARNING ALLOWS TEACHERS TO TRANSFER KNOWLEDGE FROM
ONE WORKPLACE TO ANOTHER, MAKES ALL SCHOOLS EQUAL IN THE AMOUNT OF RESOURCES THEY CAN ACCESS(PROVIDING THE
INFRASTRUTCTURE SUPPORTS IT), HAS THE OPPORTUNITY TO BRING BOTH TEACHERS AND STUDENTS TOGETHER IN
COLLABORATIVE WAYS BREAKING DOWN THE BARRIERS OF ISOLATION DUE TO DISTANCE.
THE USE OF REMOTE TEACHERS TO TEACH STUDENTS IN TENNANT CREEK IN REAL TIME
THE VAST AMOUNT OF KNOWLEDGE AND INFORMATION THAT IS AVAILABLE
THIS WILL CHANGE FROM YEAR TO YEAR. CURRENT THE GREATEST OPPORTUNITY IS TO ENABLE TO STUDENTS TO REMAIN IN
CONTACT WITH THEIR RELATIVES IN SCHOOLS FAR AWAY FROM OUR SCHOOL.
TO BE ABLE TO COMMUNICATE MORE EASILY OVER TIME AND DISTANCE, TO BE ABLE TO ACCESS ACCURATE AND RELEVANT
INFORMATION WITH A CLICK, THE USE OF MULTIMEDIA FOR TEACHING AND LEARNING IS NOW POSSIBLE THROUGH EXPANDED
BANDWIDTH AND FREELY AVAILABLE TOOLS. AND ALL OUR STUDENTS ARE ON BEBO, SO THAT'S SOMETHING FOR US TO THINK
ABOUT...
TO BE PART OF THE WORLD
TO BRING THE WORLD INTO THE CLASSROOM. FOR EXAMPLE COMPETING IN A MATHS CHALLENGE WITH STUDENTS FROM ALL
AROUND THE WORLD.
TOOLS THAT WE NEED TO DEVELOP STUDENTS SKILLS FOR THE WORKPLACE AND THE FUTURE
USE OF RESEARCH & AVAILABILITY OF INFORMATION FOR RESOURCES ALREADY DEVELOPED
USE OF SMARTBOARDS, RELIABLE BROADBAND AND BANDWIDTH. UP TO DATE TECHNOLOGY




                                      education.au 2008                                               Page 95 of 160
WEB 2.0 TOOLS, COUPLED WITH ANYWHERE/ANYTIME ACCESS VIA MOBILE DEVICES, INCLUDING IPODS AND MOBILE PHONES.
PROVISION OF BROADBAND WIRELESS TO REMOTE TEACHER (& NURSE) HOUSING AND INDIGENOUS HOUSING HAS ENORMOUS
POTENTIAL, IF TELSTRA AND FEDERAL GOVT HAS THE WILL.

BEING ABLE TO OFFER SUPPORT FOR EXTERNAL/OFF-CAMPUS STUDENTS, ESPECIALLY THOSE IN REGIONAL AREAS WHO WOULD
OTHERWISE FIND STUDY EXTREMELY DIFFICULT.
BEING ABLE TO TRANSFORM LEARNING EXPERIENCES, CHANGING PEOPLE'S VIEWS OF ITS USE AND HOW TO MAKE WORK LESS
CUMBERSOME AND STRESSFUL BECAUSE THEY ARE USING ANTIQUATED SYSTEMS AND WAYS OF WORKING. I THINK WE NEED TO
THINK LIKE KNOWLEDGE AND INFORMATION MANAGERS WHEN IN LEARNING AND TEACHING NOW. AS WELL, LEARNING TO CREATE
COMMUNITY DIFFERENTLY FROM FACE TO FACE NOW.
BLENDED LEARNING. I AM VERY RELUCTANT TO SEE COURSES DELIVERED ENTIRELY ON LINE AS I BELIEVE THE MATERIAL WE TEACH
IS NOT ABLE TO BE UNDERSTOOD WITHOUT SOME FACE-TO-FACE CONTACT AND MENTORING. HOWEVER I BELEIVE MANY STUDENTS
WILL BENEFIT FROM THE OPPORTUNITY TO REPLACE SOME OF THEIR CLASS TIME WITH COMPUTER GENERATED LEARNING
TEACHING, LEARNING AND SUPPORT.
BRIDGES DISTANCES, QUICK MESSAGING, CONTINUOUS AVAILABLE RESOURCES, UP TO DATE DATA             (MOSTLY),   VISUALLY
APPEALLING, GREAT FOR DISABLED PEOPLE TO USE WHO CANNOT WRITE EASILY ETC.,
BROADENING STUDENTS EXPERIENCE, ALLOWING A WIDER ACCESS TO STUDENTS FROM REMOTE COMMUNITIES

EASY ACCESS AND BROAD BASE FOR STUDENTS
ENABLING PEOPLE TO CONNECT
ENGAGING THE STUDENTS OUTSIDE OF THE TRADITIONAL LMS LIKE BLACKBOARD AND ADAPTING SOCIAL NETWORKING TOOLS TO
CREATE A VIRTUAL CLASSROOM THAT THEY CAN CONTRIBUTE TO AND FEEL COMFORTABLE IN. HAVING SAID THIS, WE NEED TO BE
MINDFUL THE TECHNOLOGY DOESN'T OVERPOWER OR HINDER LEARNING AND MEETING LEARNING OUTCOMES.
ENHANCING BLACKBOARD SYSTEM TO ENHANSE STUDENT INTERACTION AND ASSESSMENT.
EXCELLENT RESOURCES FOR TEACHING, AND STUDENT RESEARCH
EXPAND COURSE REACH TO NEW MARKETS. PROVIDE LEARNERS WITH FLEXIBILITY TO FIT STUDY IN WITH THEIR WORK AND FAMILY
SCHEDULES. PROMOTE INDIVIDUAL AND SMALL GROUP INTERACTION WITH AND BETWEEN LEARNERS, EG THROUGH BLOGS,
FORUMS ETC. TO PROVIDE E-TOOLS (EG BLOGS, WIKIS ETC) FOR COLLABORATION BETWEEN LEARNERS IN DIVERSE GEOGRAPHICAL
AREAS. TO SUPPORT TEACHERS WITH TRACKING AND MONITORING STUDENT INTERACTION VIA THE TOOLS IN A RELIABLE LMS.
EXPANDING BEYOND STUDENT LEARNING. IE PATIENT COUNSELLING (HEALTH SECTOR)
EXPANDING RESOURCE BASE
EXPANSION AND EASE OF ACCESS TO RESOURCES
EXPOSURE TO GLOBAL KNOWLEDGE, IDEAS, SOUND AND VISION, INVENTION, INNOVATION, INTERACTIVITY. MANAGEMENT OF DATA,
AND CONNECTIONS AND LINKS. BRINGING THE OUTSIDE IN, AND STAYING CONNECTED. GIVING STUDENTS OPPORTUNITY TO BE
PART OF THE GLOBAL (SCIENTIFIC)COMMUNITY OF THOUGHT.
FAMILIARITY OF STUDENTS WITH USE OF INTERNET MAKES IT MORE RELEVANT AS A TEACHING TOOL
FLEXIBILITY FOR STUDENT LEARNING.
FLEXIBILITY OF ACCESS
FLEXIBILITY, ACCESS AND CONTINUED DEVELOPMENT OF LIFE LONG LEARNING OPPORTUNITIES.
FLEXIBLE DELIVERY
GETTING CURRENT INFO
GIVING STUDENTS AND STAFF CHOICES ON HOW TO DELIVER AND LEARN; GREATER COLLABORATING AND SHARE IP BETWEEN
COLLEAGUES; OPERATING ON PAR WITH OTHERS IN INDUSTRY (SELF BENCHMARKING)
GREATER INTERACTION WITH AND MORE MEANINGFUL LEARNING EXPERIENCE FOR EXTERNAL STUDENTS
GREATER USE OF INTERACTIVE SITES; SELF PACED; PRACTICE AS MUCH OR AS LITTLE AS YOU LIKE
HIGH UPTAKE FROM LEARNERS.
I CAN ACCESS LATEST INFORMATION AND AM ABLE TO COMMUNICATE DISTANCE STUDENTS
I LOOK TO WEB 2 TECHNOLOGIES TO DEVELOP CHANCES FOR STUDENTS TO PRODUCE THEIR OWN RESOURCES FOR EACH OTHER
AND CREATE LEARNING COMMUNITIES
I RESEARCH THEREFORE NA




                                      education.au 2008                                            Page 97 of 160
I SEE INTERNET AND ACCESS TO IT AS USEFUL A TOOL TO ASSIST WITH TEACHING AND LEARNING BY ALLOWING STUDENTS,
DELIVERY STAFF AND OTHERS TO RESEARCH INFORMATION RELEVANT TO STUDIES, BUT NOT AS A REPLECEMENT OF TEACHING AND
TRAINING. IT CAN BE A GREAT COMMUNICATION TOOL AND I DON'T MEAN CHAT ROOMS AND SUCH, BUT WITH EMAIL AND VOIP
ASPECTS AVAILALBLE CAN BE GREAT FOR GROUP DISCUSSION ON LEARNING ISSUES.
I THINK THAT IN TERMS OF BUILDING ONLINE LEARNING COMMUNITIES AND PROVISION OF RESOURCES IT PRESENTS WONDERFUL
OPPORTUNITIES.
I WORK WITH VERY LOW LEVEL LITERACY STUDENTS. THEY COULD USE IT FOR COMMUNICATION WITH THEIR FAMILIES.
I WOULD LIKE TO BECOME PROFICIENT AT ACCESSING TEACHING RECOURCES
I WOULD SEE THE OFFERING OF DISTANCE LITERACY PROGRAMS TO STUDENTS WHO CANNOT ACCESS FACE TO FACE DELIVERY AS
BEING A GREAT OPPORTUNITY FOR ME TO DEVELOP.
I'M NOT A TEACHER BUT IT WOULD BE OF BENEFIT TO HELP WITH RESEARCH.
IMPOSSIBLE TO SAY AS NEW ONES ARE CONSTANTLY EMERGING :) HOWEVER FOR WHAT IT IS WORTH, THE CREATION OF ON-LINE
COMMUNITIES, E-MAIL DISCUSSION LISTS, VIDEO CONFERENCING AND STREAMING, PODCASTS, WEBCASTS, VIRTUAL REALITY,
NANOTECHNOLOGY... WELL YOU GET THE IDEA - AND WHO KNOWS WHAT TOMORROW WILL BRING?
INCREASED AND IMPROVED ACCESS TO DIVERSE LEARNING AND CONTENT SYSTEMS SUPPORT OF DYNAMIC LIFESTYLES AND LIFE-
LONG LEARNING OPPORTUNITIES OUTSIDE OF CLASSROOMS DIVERSE LEARNING ENVIRONMENT AND OPPORTUNITIES
INCREASED CONNECTION WITH OFF-CAMPUS STUDENTS.
INCREASING THE CONNECTION, BANDWIDTH AND SPEED, UNTIL WE CAN ADDRESS THAT THEN THERE WILL ALWAYS BE STUDENTS
THAT CANNOT ACCESS THEIR LEARNING AND FULLY DEVELOP THEIR ICT SKILLS

INSTANT ACCESS TO DATA
INSTANT ACCESS TO INFORMATION - ALTHOUGHT RELIABILITY IS AN ISSUE GOOD RESEARCH TOOL FOR STUDENTS, IF ITS USE COULD
BE STOPPED AT THE TEACHER'S DISCRETION THE MEDIUM TO ACCESS ONLINE LEARNING, ALTHOUGH WIDELY MISUSED BY
STUDENTS - MOST OF THE TIME IS A DISTRACTION TO THEIR LEARNING
INTERACTIVE - NOT TIME OR SPACE DEPENDENT - GLOBAL REACH
INTERACTIVE FOR DISTANCE TEACHING
INTERESTING, TIME SAVING, LEARNING EXPERIENCE.
INTERNET FACILITIES ALLOW STUDENTS TO COMMUNICATE WITHOUT HAVING TO BE IN THE SAME PLACE AT THE SAME TIME, AND
THIS GOES FOR INSTRUCTORS TOO. COMPLEX MATERIAL CAN BE PRESENTED IN MANY DIFFERENT FORMS, AND STUDENTS CAN
WORK THEIR WAY THROUGHT IT IN THEIR OWN TIME. DANGER IS THAT WE MIGHT INUNDATE THEM WITH MATERIAL THAT CANNOT BE
EFFECTIVELY PROCESSED IN THE LIMITED TIME AVAILABLE.
IT CAN GIVE YOU MORE TIME TO CONCENTRATE ON YOUR OWN RESEARCH. JUST A SHAME ABOUT THE STUDENTS TRYING TO WORK
OUT WHAT IS GOING ON IN THEIR COURSES.
IT HAS THE POTENTIAL TO REMOVE THE BARRIER BETWEEN THE CLASSROOM AND THE REAL WORLD BY PROVIDING STUDENTS WITH
ACCESS TO INFORMATION, EXPERTS AND COLLABORATIVE ENVIRONMENTS.
IT PROVIDES MY STUDENTS WITH MATERIAL AND TOOLS THAT IS CURRENT, CULTURALLY RELEVANT AND MAINTAINS THEIR INTEREST
AND ENGAGEMENT IN LEARNING. AT THE SAME TIME THEIR SKILLS IN USING ICT ARE BEING DEVELOPED.
IT SUPPORTS STUDENT LEARNING, PROVIDES MORE RELEVANT UP TO DATE LEARNING AVENUES AND PROMOTES RESEARCH
OPPORTUNITIES. IT PROVIDES READY SOURCES OF INFORMATION TO COMMUNICATE ADMINISTRATION AND RECORD STORAGE
INFORMATION TO STUDENTS, ESPECIALLY THOSE STUDYING EXTERNALLY. IT PROVIDES ALTERNATIVE MEANS OF
STUDENTCOMMUNICATION WITH TEACHING STAFF.
LEARNING OBJECTS ARE GREAT FOR CLIENTS AND STAFF AS TECHNOLOGIES AND WAYS OF DOING THINGS CHANGE. MULTIMEDIA
REALLY EXPANDS POSSIBILITIES FOR BETTER TEACHING - CATERING FOR ALL LEARNING STYLES - THE STUDENT MAY NOT REALISE
THEY ARE LEARING LAYERS OF INFORMATION AND SKILLS EG PROBLEM BASED LEARNING TASKS.
LINKING OF RESOURCES WITH RELEVENT STUDENTS, AND EASE OF ACCESS TO TEACHERS, TUTORS, LIBRARIANS, ETC.

MASSIVE DATABASE, EASY ACCESS IF BANDWIDTH IS OK. NO NEED TO CARRY STACKS OF PRINTED HANDOUTS AS THEY CAN BE
DONE ON-SITE.

MODERN YOUNG PEOPLE ARE INEVITABLY GOING TO BE MORE AND MORE COMPUTER/INTERNET SAVVY, AND WILL BE PROFICIENT IN
THE USE OF NEW MEDIA: SMS, IPODS ETC, SO THESE TOOLS MUST BE UTILISED IN TEACHING AND LEARNING PROGRAMMES TO BE
RELEVANT TO STUDENTS. THAT IS NOT TO SAY THAT THESE METHODS SHOULD SUPERCEDE TRADITIONAL PRACTISE, BUT RATHER
ENHANCE THE DELIVERY AND ACCESS TO INFORMATION.
MORE ACCESSIBILITY FOR STUDENTS
MORE CHOICE FOR STUDENTS WHO FEEL THAT THEY ARE LOCKED INTO ONLY ONE OR FEW TEACHING METHODS. EASE OF USE, CAN
PARTAKE AT ANY TIME OR ANYWHERE, IF THE MATERIAL IS PRESENTED AND DELIVERED CORRECTLY. STUDENTS CAN INTERACT
MORE THROUGH THE USE OF BLOGS, FORUMS, WIKI'S ETC.
MORE INTERACTIVE TOOLS
MOST CURRENT TECHNOLOGY AND UP TO THE MINUTE RESOURCES.

THE DEVELOPMENT OF ONLINE LEARNING COMMUNITIES
THE GREATEST OPPORTUNITIE AS I SEE IT IF FOR PEOPLE TO DEVELOPE NEW HARDWARE THAT WILL LAST LONGER THAN A FEW
MONTHS BEFORE IT BECOMES OBSOLETE, THIS IS MY DREAM THAT ONE DAY I HOPE TO REALISE.
THE GREATEST OPPORTUNITIES ARE IN ENABLING RESEARCH MATERIAL TO BE AVAILABLE TO A WIDER RANGE OF PEOPLE
THE GREATEST OPPORTUNITY IS THAT THESE TOOLS ENABLE TEACHING STAFF TO ENGAGE THE STUDENT USING THE
TECHNOLOGIES OF THEIR GENERATION.
THE GREATEST OPPORTUNITY IS TO TRANSCEND TRADITIONAL FORMAL EDUCATION         -   PEOPLE CAN ENGAGE WITH LIFELONG
LEARNING CONCEPTS MORE EASILY
THE NEW SPCIAL NETWORKING TOOLS AND FASTER BANDWIDTH ARE ENABLING MORE INFROMATION TO BE PUSHED OUT TO
STUDENTS WHERE THEY STUDY. WE USE THESE TECHNOLOGIES TO BE CREATIVE IN THE WAY WE DO THIS AND THE TAKE UP RATE
OF OUR SUPPORT IS INCREASING.
THE OPPORTUNITY FOR PEOPLE LIVING AT A DISTANCE FROM LEARNING INSTITUTIONS TO BE ACTIVELY INVOLVED IN A GROUP
LEARNING EXPERIENCE AS WELL AS INDIVIDUAL INTERACTIVE LEARNING EXPERIENCES THROUGH ICTS, EG MULTIMEDIA TUTORIALS,
VIDEOSTREAMING, ETC. HAS BECOME MORE OF A REALITY WITH THE INTRODUCTION OF BROADBAND TO REMOTE COMMUNITIES.
THE OPPORTUNITY TO PROVIDE EDUCATION TO PEOPLE WHO ARE IN REMOTE AREAS (IN AUSTRALIA AND OVERSEAS), WHO WOULD
OTHERWISE BE UNABLE TO ACCESS A UNIVERSITY.
THE WAY OF NOW AND THE FUTURE
THE WORLD IS RACING AHEAD WITH THE USE OF TECHNOLOGY. IT IS IMPORTANT THAT, AS ADULTS, WE KEEP ABREAST.
TO ASSIST AND ORGMENT BELENDED LEARNING INFORMATION STRORAGE AND COMMUNICATION RE AREA MANAGEMENT
TO BRING ABOUT A NEW WAY OF THINKING OF EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTIONS. STUDENTS THESE DAYS DO NOT ALWAYS WANT WHAT
STUDENTS USED TO WANT. NOW THEY WANT FREEDOM AND FLEXIBILITY. THEY WANT TO STUDY MAINLY FROM THEIR HOME (OR
WORKPLACE) - EVEN THE SCHOOL LEAVERS, AND YET HAVE THE SAME ACCESS TO STAFF THAT THEY HAVE ALWAYS HAD. STAFF
NOW NEED (AND WANT) TO TRAVEL, AND WORK FROM HOME, AND HAVE MORE FLEXIBILITY. MANY STAFF ARE P/T, AND WORK F/T.
ICT MAY BE ABLE TO MAKE THIS NEW WORLD WORK FOR US ALL.
TO CONNECT STUDENTS WITH OTHER STUDENTS. TO CONNECT STUDENTS TO WORLD INFORMATION RE PROBLEM SOLVING
TO KEEP CURRENT
TO KEEP UP TO DATE AND CURRENT
TO PROVIDE A GREATER INSIGHT TO STUDENTS THAT THE WORLD IS THEIR SOURCE OF INFORMATION FOR PROBLEM SOLVING,

UP WITH SUCH TECHNOLOGIES AND OBSTACLES FOR THOSE LIVING IN THE POORER AREAS. I DO NOT THINK THOUGH A TECHNOLOGY
BASED LEARNING HAS INCREASED THE OBSTACLES FOR THE POORER PEOPLE IN OUR SOCIETY, ONLY CREATED DIFFERENCES IN
THE OBSTACLES THAT ALREADY EXIST. E.G. ACCESS TO CULTURAL CAPITAL - NO DIFFERENT AS TO WHETHER IT IS A BOOK OR
COMPUTER.
WITH THE INCREASE IN PORTABILITY AND ACCESS THE USE OF INSTITUTIONAL PORTALS AND BLACKBOARD SITE SHOULD BECOME
'ANYWHERE, ANYTIME'.
WOULD LIKE TO SEE CENTRAL CLEARING HOUSE FOR THE WIDE RANGE OF DATA AND INFORMATION THAT SUPPORTS TEACHING THE
EXTREMELY WIDE RANGE OF SUBJECTS IN AN EQUALLY WIDE RANGE OF COURSES WITHIN THE COMMUNITY SERVICES TRAINING

FLEXIBLE DELIVERY AND SELF PACED LEARNING OPTIONS, THOUGH MY AREA OF TOURISM IS A PEOPLE BASED INDUSTRY AND
PLENTY OF LEARNING NEEDS TO BE INTERACTIVE WITH PEOPLE RATHER THAN MACHINES
FLEXIBLE DELIVERY IN AN ONLINE LEARNING ENVIRONMENT,
FLEXIBLE DELIVERY OPPORTUNITIES - END RESTRICTIVE STRUCTURED STUDY TIMES. OFFER DIFFERENT WAYS OF LEARNING TO
SUIT DIFFERENT LEARNING STYLES, PROVIDE REINFORCEMENT OR STUDY ASSISTANCE TO INDIVIDUALS
FLEXIBLE DELVERY MODES THAT ALLOW FREEDOM TO ACCESS WHEN TIME AND OPPORTUNITY PERMIT ESPECIALLY IN RURAL AND
REMOTE.
FLEXIBLE LEARNING
FOR INTERGRATED OR BLENDED DELIVERY PRACTICES
FOR MY STUDENTS, IT GIVES THEM A GREATER INSIGHT INTO THE EXPECTATIONS OF THEIR CHILDREN'S TEACHERS, SO MANY WILL
PERSERVERE SO THEY CAN SUPPORT THEIR KIDS. THIS WILL MEAN THAT THEY DEVELOP SKILLS THEY WOULD NOT NECESSARILY
HAVE WANTED TO BOTHER WITH. THE OPPORTUNITIES FOR DISTANCE EDUCATION ARE ENORMOUS, PROVIDING THE
INFRASTRUCTURE IS THERE; CARE NEEDS TO BE TAKEN THAT THE DIGITAL DIVIDE DOES NOT DISADVANTAGE THE SAME GROUPS
THAT HAVE TRADITIONALLY BEEN DISADVANTAGED, OR ANY OTHER GROUPS.
FOR MY STUDENTS, IT IS THE POTENTIAL TO ENGAGE THEM MORE POSITIVELY IN THE LEARNING PROCESS.
FOR MYSELF, PREDOMINANTLY USE OF ONLINE SYSTEMS FOR FACILITATION WITHIN CLASS AND FOR DISTANCE EDUCATION AND THE
EXPANSION OF REFERENCE BAS FOR SELF AND STUDENTS
FOR RESEARCH
FOR TEACHING - ACCESS TO UP TO DATE INFO/ SAMPLE LANGAUGE IN CONTEXT FOR STUDENTS - CAN LISTEN OVER AND OVER
- CAN LISTEN AND READ

I DON'T.
I THINK I DON'T SEE IT AS AN OPPORTUNITY AS SUCH, BUT COMBINED WITH TEXT BASED I THINK IT PROVIDES AND OVERALL
BALANCE. WE SHOULDN'T RELY ON THE NET TOTALLY AS IT CAN WORK AGAINST OUR EFFICIENCIES AND RESOURCE RELIABILITY. I
FIND EMAIL AND IP PHONE AS THE BEST INTERNET TOOLS MADE AVAILABLE. EMAIL IS A QUICK AND EFFECTIVE WAY TO
COMMUNICATE WITH ANYONE ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD, WHILE THE IP PHONE IS AN INEXPENSIVE WAY TO COMMUNICATE WITH
ANYONE ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD.
I THINK ON-LINE LEARNING IS THE WAY OF THE FUTURE.
I WANT TO BE THE FIRST TAFE IN 2ND LIFE WITH OUR VIRTUAL HOTEL.
I WOULD LIKE TO HAVE ACCESS TO COMPUTERS IN MY CLASS SO THAT STUDENTS WERE ABLE TO INDEPENDENTLY RESEARCH
VARIOUS TOPICS SO THAT IT'S NOT ALWAYS ME PROVIDING THEM WITH INPUT - THIS WOULD ENCOURAGE THEIR SELF DIRECTED
LEARNING AND IMPROVE THEIR ABILITY TO USE COMPUTERS
I WOULD LIKE TO SEE OUR AREA DEELOP SOME ON - LINE ASSESSMENT AND SOME DELIVERY IN THIS AREA

I.S. COULD BE VERY USEFUL FOR DISTANCE ED. IF THE EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTES WERE FUNDED TO PROVIDE STUDENTS RELYING
ON I.S. WITH A LAPTOP WITH SOFTWARE AND MEMORY AND BROADBAND SERVICES. CURRENTLY IT IS ASSUMED THAT STUDENTS
OWN A COMPUTER (NOT ALL DO)THAT IS POWERFUL ENOUGH AND RECENT ENOUGH TO SUPPORT PROGRAMS REQUIRED (OFTEN
THEY ARE NOT) AND THAT THEY CAN ACCESS AND AFFORD BROADBAND (ALSO OFTEN NOT THE CASE FOR REGIONAL/RURAL
STUDENTS).UNTIL THIS EQUITY ISSUE IS ADRESSED THERE ARE NO GREAT OPP.
IF RELIABILITY AND ACCESS WERE IMPROVED (TOO MANY POLICY RESTRICTIONS AND UNSCHEDULED DOWN TIME)AND SUFFICIENT
RESOURCES WERE AVAILABLE, MORE COULD BE DONE TO DEVELOP NEW AND EXCITING TEACHING TOOLS TO APPEAL TO GENY. AND
IMPROVE PRODUCTIVITY.
IN MY OPINION, I HAVE THE RESOURCES AT MY FINGERTIPS - THIS I SEE AS AN OPPORTUNITY BECAUSE I DO NOT NEED TO FIND A
CHAPTER OUT OF A BOOK NOR DO I NEED TO BE REFERRED TO SOMEONE WHO HAS THAT INFORMATION. THE INFORMATION IS
THERE WHENEVER I WISH TO ACCESS IT.
INDUSTRY ACCESS OUTSIDE OF FORMAL TEACHING SCENAIOS
INFORMATION AT YOUR FINGRE TIPS
INSTANT ACCESS TO A VAST RANGE OF RESOUCES
INSTANT ACCESS TO INFORMATION
INSTANT INFORMATION BEING PROVIDED
INTERACTION ANYWHERE, ANYTIME. OPTIONS TO SELF TEST AND SEE ANSWERS AND MOVE ON AT OWN PACE. OPTIONS TO USE
WIKIS AND NEW INTERACTIVE PALETTES TO COMPILE WORK SPACES - SUITABLE FOR DIFFERENT LEVELS OF EXPERIENCE AND
DIFFERENT LEVELS OF INTELLIGENCE, AS WELL AS DIFFERENT SUBJECTS.
INTERACTIVE LEARNING, OFFSITE LEARNING
INTERNET BASED COURSES ALLOW A MORE FLEXIBLE DELIVERY MODE FOR STUDENTS WHO ARE UNABLE TO ATTEND ON A WEEKLY
BASIS. STUDENTS ARE ABLE TO COMMUNICATE WITH THE LECTURER AND EACH OTHER VIA CHAT ROOMS. CAN ASSIST WITH TEAM
PROJECTS WHEN NECESSARY FOR EXTERNAL STUDENTS. UP-TO-DATE INFORMATION IS EASILY ACCESSED.
INTRA SITE TEACHING, INTERNATIONAL REACH INTERFACE WITH STUDENT
ISOLATED STUDENTS OR THOSE WORKING SHIFT (ALTHOUGH AS A SERVICE PROVIDER WE SHOULD SERVICE THE CLIENT NO MATTER
WHAT THE TIME)
IT ALLOWS FELEXIBLITY
IT CAN BE LEARNER DRIVEN, SELF PACED. ALSO FANTASTIC GRAPHIC MATERIAL IS EASILY DELIVERED DURING A LECTURE(A
PICTURE TELLS A THOUSAND STORIES). HOWEVER IN MY FIELD IT CAN ONLY ACT AS A SUPPORT MECHANISM. INFORMATION AND
KNOWLEDGE ARE TWO DIFFERENT THINGS. KNOWLEDGE IS PERSONALISED AND HARD WON. CONTINUOS IMPROVEMENT AND
COMMUNICATION WITH COLLEQAGUES ALL OVER THE WORLD ENSURES THAT WE ARE DOING THE VERY BEST FOR OUR STUDENTS
AND INDUSTRY.
IT GIVES YOU A WIDE SPECTRUM AND A WEALTH OF INFORMATION WHEN YOU LOG INTO YOUR COMPUTER.
IT HELPS EVERYONE IN DEVELOPING THEIR SKILLS.
IT IS THE TOOL OF CHOICE FOR GENERATION Y STUDENTS. WE NEED IT TO STAY CURRENT.
IT IS WHAT THE STUDENTS SEE IN IT AND THAT IS THE FREEDOM, EASINESS, AND ACCESSIBILITY TO REACH WHAT EVER THEY WANT
AT ANY TIME
IT SUITS MANY OF OUR YOUNGER STUDENTS AND PROVIDES ACCESS TO THE INTERNET WITHIN THE RESOURCES FOR FURTHER
RESEARCH. IT IS A MORE INTERESTING WAY OF LEARNING RATHER THAN USING STUDY GUIDES AND TEXT BOOKS.
IT'S A POTENTIAL EQUALISER FOR OUR CORE CLIENTS - A CHANCE FOR STUDENTS TO COLLABORATE GLOBALLY AT THEIR OWN PACE
ON THEIR TIMELINES AT THEIR LEISURE - JUST IN TIME - JUST FOR YOU CONCEPTS. WE MOVE FROM TEH 'SAGE ON STAGE' TO THE
'GUIDE ON THE SIDE' COLLABORATING AND ADDRESSING TEH KEY CONCEPTS OF ADULT EDUCATION AND EMPLOYABILITY SKILLS
ITS AVAILABLE 24HRS ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD (AS LONG AS YOU HAVE THE BANDWITDH)
IT'S FAST AND EFFICIENT WHEN THINGS ARE WORKING PROPERLY!!
KEEPING UP TO DATE AND BEING AS FLEXIBLE AS WE CAN HOWEVER THIS MEANS THAT OUR INTERNAL SYSTEMS NEED TO BE
UPDATED ALSO SO THAT WE CAN DELIVER THIS SERVICE TO OUR CUSTOMERS
LARGE POOL OF KNOWLEDGE
LARGER SELECTION OF VENDOR INFORMATION, PRODUCT SEARCHES. STUDENTS CAN RESEARCH TOPICS AS WELL AS DEVELOP
COMPUTER SKILLS.
LATEST INFORMATION ON A HUGH RANGE OF SUBJECTS
LEADING QUESTION. NOT SURE THIS IS A VALID SURVEY QUESTION. IT ASSUMES THERE ARE OPPORTUNITIES. FOR TEACHING,
MAINLY FOR BEING ABLE TO FIND THINGS FOR HR & IR AND STUDENT RELATED MATTERS. FOR LEARNING, NOT MUCH - DESPITE
FOLLOWING 'ON-LINE INTERACTICE ELARNING' FOR MANY EYARS, I REALLY DON'T SEE TO MANY SUCCESSES. NOTE: POSITIVE

STUDENT FEEDBACK DOES NOT EQUAL SUCCESS.    OTE:   LEARNING ON LINE AND ASSESSMENT ON LINE ARE TWO DIFFFERENT
THINGS.
LEARNING ACCESS FOR STUDENTS IN REMOTE LOCATIONS. RESEARCH TOOL FOR STUDENTS AND TEACHERS. OPPORTUNITY FOR
STUDENTS TO CATCH UP ON MISSED CLASSES, ASK QUESTIONS, AND SUBMIT ASSIGNMENTS REMOTELY.
LEARNING RESOURCE SUPPORT ONLINE TEACHING CONTACT WITH STUDENTS & CUSTOMERS
LECTURE STREAMING, ONLINE COLLABORATION TOOLS.
LINKS FOR STUDENTS TO ACCESS ONLINE THEORY TOPICS

NOT MY ROLE
NOT REALLY APPLICABLE TO ME. SUPPOSE ACCESS TO VAST AMOUNTS OF OTHERWISE UNOBTAINABLE INFORMATION.
NOT SURE
NOT SURE WOULD LIKE TO KNOW MORE
OBVIOUSLY IT SHOULD BE USEFUL FOR PEOPLE WHO ARE UNABLE TO ATTEND REGUALR CLASSES SUCH AS PEOPLE FROM REMOTE
AREAS OR PEOPLE WHO ARE UNABLE TO ATTEND DUE TO EMPLOYMENT, CHILDREN OR SICKNESS OR OTHER PROBLEMS. IF THE
INTERACTIVE TOOLS ARE INTERESTING AND WELL PREPARED IT WOULD ENGAGE RELUCTANT LEARNERS AS WELL AS PROVIDE
REFRESHERS FOR OTHERS. IT CAN BE USED AS AN ADJUNCT TO THE CLASSROOM ACTIVITIES OR CAN BE USED ALONE. TODAY,
MANY YOUNG LEARNERS PREFER TO LEARN FROM A COMPUTER SCREEN.
ON - LINE LEARNING IS THE WAY OF THE FUTURE AND I WOULD LOVE TO BE PROFICIENT AT IT AS A LECTURER.
ON LINE TEACHING AND LEARNING IS DEFINATELY AN ADDED FEATURE IN MODERN DOMESTIC AND INTERNATIONAL EDUCATION
SYSTEMS.
ON-LINE AND BEING USERFRIENDLY
ONLINE COMMUNITIES AND COLLABORATION/SHARING
ONLINE INFORMATION FOR PRE-ENROLLING STUDENTS, AND GOOD FOR TUTORIAL ASSISTANCE FOR DISTANT STUDENTS AND
APPRENTICES, (IF BANDWIDTH IS IMPROVED)
ONLINE INSTRUCTIONS
ON-LINE LEARNING
ONLINE LEARNING FOR STUDENTS UNABLE TO ATTENT NORMAL CLASS TIMES DUE TO WORK/HOME COMMITMENTS ETC
ONLINE LEARNING, INTERACTIVE CONTENT AND COMMUNICATION WITH EXTERNAL STUDENTS
ONLINE REPOSITORIES/LIBRARIES FOR STUDENTS INSTEAD OF TEXTBOOKS, WORKBOOKS (WHICH DATE VERY QUICKLY IN TODAY'S
WORLD). VISUAL AIDS TO LEARNING, EXAMPLES CAN BE VIDEO CLIPS THAT GIVE REMOTE STUDENTS THE SAME EXPOSURE TO
DEMONSTRATIONS ETC.
ONLINE SUPPORT FOR LEARNERS OUTSIDE CLASS - ACCESS TO RESOURCES - ACCESS TO COLLEAGUES INTERSTATE AND
OVERSEAS / COMMUNITIES OF PRACTICE - USE OF AUDIO AND VIDEO FOR SECOND LANGAUGE LEARNERS
ONLINE TESTING AND ASSESSMENTS
OPPORTUNITIES TO REACH REMOTE STUDENTS IN A WAY THAT IS SUPERIOR TO BASIC EXTERNAL STUDIES AND ALSO SUPPORT
PROGRAMMES FOR STUDENTS HAVING DIFFICULTIES IN CERTAIN AREAS. I STILL BELIEVE THAT FACE TO FACE TEACHING IS THE
BETTER METHOD BUT INTERNET TOOLS CAN BE USED AS AN EXTRA AND FOR EXTERNAL STUDENTS.

THE DEVELOPMENT AND USE OF ONLINE RESOURCES AS WE ARE CURRENTLY DOING HERE - A VIRTUAL HOTEL
THE E-ENVIRONMENT PROVIDES OPPORTUNITIES TO ENGAGE YOUNG PEOPLE WHO ARE RELATIVELY PROFICIENT IN ICT AND ONLINE
COMMUNITIES. BEING ABLE TO ENGAGE WITH STUDENTS VIA FACEBOOK / MYSPACE IS AN OPPORTUNITY WASTED WHILST THESE
SITES ARE BLOCKED.
THE FUTURE OF TEACH WILL RELY ON TEACH STUDENT ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD
THE FUTURE -WHEN AS IT IS NOW WILL SEEM ARCHAEIC IN HINDSITE.
THE GREATEST OPPORTUNITIES WILL EXIST IN ENGAGING TODAYS YOUTH AS THEY WILL RESPOND BETTER TO STUDYING ONLINE IN
THEIR OWN TIME.
THE IMMEDIATE OPPORTUNITY TO COMMUNICATE IN A GREATLY ENHANCED, HOLITIC WAY ANYWHERE, ANYTIME.
THE INFORMATION AVAILABLE AT THE FINGER TIP AND FAST.

LOVE TO GET ALL OUR THEORY ASSESSMENTS ON COMPUTER: BETTER VALIDITY AND LESS MARKING!
THE OPPORTUNITY TO MAKE EDUCATION AND LEARNING ACCESSIBLE TO EVERYONE THROUGHT THE USE OF ADAPTIVE SOFTWARE
AND EQUIPMENT
THERE ARE GREAT OPPORTUNITES FOR HIGHER ED INSTITUTIONS IN BEING ABLE TO MANAGE AND DISTRIBUTE INFORMATION. AND
HAVING COMPANIES LIKE GOOGLE AND MICROSOFT COMPETING TO PROVIDE FREE SERVICES TO INSTITUTIONS TO REPLACE AND
ADD VALUE TO EXISTING ON CAMPUS SERVICES.
THERE ARE GREAT OPPORTUNITIES TO OFFER ALTERNATIVE METHODS OF DELIVERY OF SPECIFIC COMPETENCIES AND TO USE AS
COMMUNICATION PORTAL. IF ONE ISN'T CONFIDENT WITH IT THEN TIME BECOMES AN ISSUE AS YOU NEED TO SET TIME ASIDE TO
LEARN HOW TO USE IT TO ITS BEST POTENTIAL.
THERE ARE MANY OPPORTUNITIES WHERE INTERNET SERVICES CAN SUPPORT THE DELIVERY OF LEARNING.

THERE  IS A VAST ARRAY OF RESOURCES OUT THERE (WHICH WE CAN'T CURRENTLY ACCESS)TO ASSIST IN TEACHING AND
LEARNING. RESOURCES SUCH AS YOU TUBE CAN EDUCATE IN A WAY PREVIOUSLY UNAVAILABLE.
THERE IS SO MUCH THERE, STUDENTS TAKE TO IT POSITIVELY AND THEIR KNOWLEDGE OF HOW TO USE IT MAKES IT AN ONVIOUS
INFORMATION SOURCE (TEACHERS NEED TO GET THEM TO APPRAISE CRITICALLY WHAT THEY FIND) MEANS THAT PEOPLE WHO ARE
REMOTE FROM EACH OTHER (TIME AND/OR PLACE) CAN WORK ON COMMON PROJECTS VERY CREATIVE OPPORTUNITIES WITHIN
THE TECHNOLOGY
TO ACCESS INFORMATION, TO INTEREACT WITH OTHERS WORKING IN SIMILAR ROLES AND FIELDS
TO ADD ANOTHER DIMENSION TO LEARNING BEYOUND THE CLASSROOM.
TO BE ABLE TO DIRECT STUDENTS TO UP TO DATE INFORMATION AND VARIETY OF INFORMATION
TO ENCOURAGE STUDENTS AND MY SELF TO LOOK DEEPER INTO A SUBJECT TO ENHANCE THE TOPIC OR A PARTICULAR ITEM
TO GIVE PEOPLE A WIDER RANGE OF LEARNING TOOLS AND SUBJECTS
TO PROVIDE FLEXIBILITY IN HOW THE STUDENT STUDIES THE COURSE AND A WIDER VARIETY OF RESOURCES. ALSO WITH SECOND
LIFE THE POSSIBILITES FOR REAL LIFE EXPERIENCES IS FANTASTIC.
TO PROVIDE INDIVIDUALISED EDUCATION AND TRAINING TO SUIT DIFFERENT LEARNING STYLES. THIS IS PART OF THE 'FLEXIBLE
LEARNING' PHILOSOPHY THAT UNDERPINS OUR PROGRAM. IT ALSO IS CRITICAL FOR ADEQUATELY AND APPROPRIATELY MEETING
THE TRAINING NEEDS OF TODAY'S STUDENTS (GENERATION Y ETC). TECHNOLOGY IS NATIVE TO THESE PEOPLE AND TO DENY THEM
OF IT IS UNSATISFACTORY. THESE STUDENTS NEED THESE TOOLS AND ARE ENTHUSIASTIC AND PROFICIENT WHEN EQUIPPED WITH
THESE TOOLS.
UNLIMITED - THE NEWLY EMERGING IDEAS SUCH AS MOODLES ETC ARE FANTASTIC, BUT WE NEED THE ON THE GROUND FACILITIES,
JUST THE EQUIPMENT TO DELIVER, DOESN'T MATTER ABOUT THE OPPORTUNITIES, WE NEED THE RESOURCES TO DELIVER, STAFF
WILL KEEP UP WITH THE TECHNOLOGY, IT'S THE EQUIPMENT AND RESOURCES THAT AREN'T KEEPING UP WITH THE OPPORTUNITIES

COMMUNICATION, COLLABORATION, CONNECTIONS
DELIVERING 24X7 ACADEMIC AND SUPPORT SERVICES TO STUDENTS STUDYING ONLINE OR WITH LIMITED TIME TO ACCESS THESE
SERVICES ON CAMPUS.
JUST AS READING HAS TRADITIONALLY EXPANDED THE MINDS OF STUDENTS, NEW GENERATION Y'S ARE USING THE INTERNET FOR
A GREAT DEAL OF KNOWLEDGE GAIN.
LINKS TO THE GLOBAL EDUCATION COMMUNITY AND FREE KNOWLEDGE
MORE ENGAGING CURRICULUM THAT CATERS FOR ALL LEARNING STYLES
RAPID ACCESS TO INFORMATION IS ONE OF THE PRINCIPAL ADVANTAGES OF THE INTERNET. EASILY SORTING THAT INFORMATION
TO SUIT YOUR TEACHING AND LEARNING NEEDS IS AN OPPORTUNITY THAT HAS YET TO BE FULLY EXPLOITED.
WEB 2.0 IN TEACHING AND LEARNING

FOR STUDENTS TO ACTIVELY VIEW AND ENGAGE/EXPERIENCE KNOWLEDGE, CONCEPTS, TECVHNOLOGIES ETC THAT THEY WOULD
NOT ORDINARILY BE ABLE TO EXPERIENCE.
ALL THE INFORMATION YOU COULD WANT OR NEED AT YOUR FINGERTIPS. VERY EFFICIENT IN TERMS OF TIME SAVING AND GIVING
US A WIDE RANGE OF CHOICE.
ALREADY STATED - FUTURE DEVELOPMENT OF REAL ONLINE LEARNING TOOLS (ONLINE WORKSHEETS THAT ARE INTERACTIVE AS
FORMS) IS WHERE I AM DIRECTING MYSELF TOWARD.
ANYWHERE, ANYTIME ACCESS, THE NOTION OF THE 'GLOBAL VILLAGE', ACCESS TO OPPORTUNITY AND RELEVANCE
AS LONG AS THE INFRASTRUCTURE IS SOUND THEN THE SPEED OF COMMUNICATION CAN OPEN UP BETTER NETWORKS. BETTER
INTERNET COMMUNICATIONS IN RURAL COMMUNITIES SHOULD LESSONS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ACHIEVEMENT LEVELS
BETWEEN RURAL AND METROPOLITAN STUDENTS. UNFORTUNATELY THE SMALLER BUSH SCHOOLS SUCH AS OURS HAVE LESS
RESOURCES AND CAPACITY TO BUILD AND MAINTAIN ADEQUATE ICT FACILITIES.
AS MOST OF MY CLASS ARE BOYS IT CERTAINLY HELPS TO ENGAGE THEM. IF I CAN USE THIS TIME TO GET THEM ALL TO BE IT
PROFICIENT, THEY WILL BE MORE READY FOR HIGH SCHOOL.
ASSESSING AND TEACHING SPECIFIC TOPICS. TO BE ABLE TO HAVE PORTFOLIOS OF STUDENTS WORK LINKED TO OUTCOMES AND
INCREASE THE SCOPE OF THE RESOURCES AVAILABLE TO THEM.

BEING ABLE TO HAVE ACCESS TO A WIDER SCOPE OF INFORMATION THAT IS BOTH CURRENT & UP TO DATE & BEING ABLE TO MOVE
FORWARD WITH THE TIMES AS TRAINING IS AVAILABLE.
BEING ABLE TO PROVIDE STUDENTS WITH A WORLD OF INFORMATION, BUT THIS NEEDS TO BE STRUCTURED IN SUCH A WAY TO
AVOID THE AMOUNT OF TIME STUDENTS DO WASTE IN USING THE INTERNET FOR RESEARCH. AS WELL AS GIVING STUDENTS THE
URLS OF SITES TO VISIT I WOULD LIKE TO BE MORE PROFICIENT IN ADVANCE SEARCHING SO I COULD THEN SHOW THE STUDENTS.
THIS WOULD LEAD TO A BIG IMPROVEMENT OF STUDENTS INTERNET USE.

CONNECTIONS    BETWEEN STUDENTS, TEACHERS, SCHOOLS AND COMMUNITIES; ACCESS TO RESOURCES THAT MAY NOT BE
AVAILABLE IN REMOTE AREAS; STAYING CURRENT WITH STUDENT LIVES AND INTERSETS AS MANY ARE MORE REGULAR AND MORE
PROFICIENT USERS OF THIS TECHNOLOGY THAN MANY TEACHERS
CREATING AN ONLINE PRESENCE FOR LESSONS, WHICH USES A VARIETY OF SERVICES AND TOOLS TO ENHANCE LEARNING.
CREATING YOUR OWN WEBQUESTS TO UTILISE OTHER AUSTRALIAN SCHOOL SITES. FOR INSTANCE, ONE SCHOOL RESEARCH AN
ASPECT OF SCIENCE AND MAKE A WEBQUEST WHILE ANOTHER SCHOOL DO THE SAME FOR A S&E TOPIC. THE STUDENTS WOULD
THEN BE ABLE TO LEARN THE VALIDITY OF INFORMATION ON THE INTERNET DEPENDS ON THE AUTHOR AND THEIR RESEARCH. THE
BONUS WOULD BE RECEIVING HITS ON THE WEBSITE THEY CREATED AND THE CYCLE OF FEEDBACK / IMPROVEMENT.
CREATIVITY, ENGAGEMENT, RELEVANT TO MY STUDENTS WORLD, BRINGS THE WORLD CLOSER. COLLABORATION WITH STUDENTS
IN OTHER COUNTRIES EG CONFIRM FACTS FROM THE NEWS ETC. MORE CRITICAL LITERACY.
CURRENT RELEVANT AND INTERACTIVE TECHNOLOGIES ARE ESSENTIAL FOR KEEPING UP WITH THE 'WORLD' OF INFORMATION.
CURRENT UP TO DATE SOURCE OF INFORMATION AND FACTS ABOUT CURRICULUM CONTENT. PROFESSIONAL STANDARD OF

FAST ACCESS TO UP-TO-DATE INFORMATION AND EXCITING ACTIVITIES
FINDING INFORMATION AS INDIVIDUAL STUDENTS, ONLINE LEARNING FOR PEAC KIDS
FLEXIBILITY AND ENGAGEMENT
FLEXIBILITY IN THE MATERIALS AND LEARNING RESOURCES CAN BE PROVIDED FOR STUDENTS. MANY WEBSITES OFFER ONLINE
ACTIVITIES WHERE STUDENTS CAN WORK AT THEIR OWN PACE AND RECEIVE FEEDBACK ON THEIR PROGRESS. OPPORTUNITIES FOR
MANAGING THE LEARNING PROCESS THROUGH USE OF MOODLE AND SETTING UP A SCHOOL BASED SYSTEM FOR COLLECTING
STUDENTS WORK.
FOR STUDENTS THE OPPORTUNITY TO ACCESS TECHNOLOGY IS VERY IMPORTANT - WITHOUT HANDS ON LEARNING IN THIS AREA -
STUDENTS WOULD NOT MAKE THE NECESSARY STEPS FORWARD TO KEEP UP WITH A CHANGING TECHNOLOGICAL WORLD. FOR
MYSELF AS A LEARNER AND A TEACHER - KEEPING UP WITH THE LATEST TECHNOLOGIES BY PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT IS VERY
IMPORTANT - AGAIN THE OPPORTUNITY TO HAVE ACCESS TO THE TECHNOLOGY IS A MUST.
FOR USE WITH STUDENTS AS A MTIVATIONAL TOOL AND INFORMATION GATHERING RESOURCE FOR TEACHERS
FRESH IDEAS FOR TEACHING, INFORMATION/RESEARCH 4 STDS, VIRTUAL MANIPULATIVES, FUN GAMES FOR CONCEPT
CONSOLIDATION

GOOD FOR STUDENTS TO BE ABLE TO DO OWN RESEARCH OR GAINING INFORMATION
GOOD WAY TO SHARE RESOURCES, GOOD WAY TO SHOW STUDENTS HOW THINGS          MOVE, MAKE NOISE ETC GREAT WAY FOR
TEACHERS TO COMMUNICATE
GREATER OPPORTUNITIES FOR MENTORING OF STUDENTS IN REMOTE     AREAS OF   AUSTRALIA,   PARTICULARLY GIFTED CHILDREN
WHO, IN THESE CENTRES ARE OFTEN LEFT TO THEIR OWN DEVICES.




                                    education.au 2008                                               Page 112 of 160
HAVING THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE WORLD AT ONES FINGERTIPS
HELP WITH LITERACY AND NUMERACY. IN THE END STUDENTS STILL NEED TO READ AND WRITE EFFECTIVELY. AT THE END OF YEAR
12 STUDENTS STILL SIT A 3 HOUR WRITTEN EXAM. IT HAS A USE FOR STUDENTS BUT IT CAN ALSO BE A HUGE DISTRACTION AND
UNDERMINE THE SOCIAL NATURE OF US AS HUMAN BEINGS.
I CAN DIRECT STUDENTS TO RECENT FINDINGS IN RESEARCH TOPICS. THE STUDENTS ARE MORE SWITCHED ON WHEN GIVEN THE
OPPORTUNITY TO USE INTERACTIVE SITES IN ALL SUBJECT AREAS.
I LIKE THE LF LEARNING OBJECTS BUT THERE ARE NOT A LOT SUITABLE FOR MIDDLE PRIMARY SCHOOL AGED STUDENTS. GREATEST
OPPORTUNUTIES ARE FOR PLANNING AND FOR TEACHING STUDENTS IN A CONTROLLED SITUATION AS TO HOW TO USE A WEBSITE
AND HOW TO GATHER THE INFORMATION THEY REQUIRE. USING TEMPLATES WITH WEB LINKS IS ALSO A POWERFUL TOOL FOR YR 4
STUDENTS AS I CAN SET THE SITE THEY ARE ACCESSING.
I LOVE THE LEARNING OBJECTS - AND SO DO THE CHILDREN!!! THEY SCAFFOLD TEACHING AND LEARNING SO VERY WELL. HAVING
CHILDREN UNDERTAKE THEIR OWN RESEARCH ON GUIDED TOPICS IS IMPORTANT - USING SEARCH ENGINES EFFICIENTLY. CHILDREN
MUST ALSO BECOME FAMILIAR ENOUGH TO USE ICT IN THEIR FUTURE WORK LIVES.
I SEARCH FOR INSPIRATIONAL IDEAS TO USE IN TEACHING. SHARING AND NETWORKING THESE WITH OTHER TEACHERS IS ONE OF
THE GREATEST OPPORTUNITIES WE CAN HAVE.
I SEE IT AS A WAY OF GETTING A LOT OF INFORMATION AND GETTING STUDENTS TO BE CRITICALLY AWARE OF WHAT IS OUT THERE.
I THINK IT HAS THE POTENTIAL TO BREAK THE OLD MODEL OF ONE TEACHER TO 30 STUDENTS IN ONE CLASSROOM. YOU CAN INVITE
STUDENTS AND GUEST TEACHERS INTO YOUR VIRTUAL CLASSROOM FROM ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD, YOU CAN SET UP A MENTOR
PROGRAM FOR BEGINNING TEACHERS IN ISOLATED LOCATIONS USING JANISON AND CENTRA. YOU CAN PROVIDE STUDENTS WITH
REAL LIFE EXPERIENCES AND SIMULATIONS THAT ARE INTERACTIVE AND NOT STATIC.
I THINK IT WOULD BE GOOD IF THERE WERE APPROPRIATE LEARNING OBJECTS FOR USE IN ECONOMICS. MOST I'VE SEEN ARE FOR
PRIMARY SCHOOL RATHER THAN YR 10 - 12. IT WOULD BE GOOD TO SEE SOMETHING TO ENHANCE LEARNING AT A HIGHER LEVEL
THAT IS ENGAGING.
I WOULD LIKE TO USE THE INTERNET TO TEACH CHILDREN ABOUT PLACES AND PEOPLE WITH WHOM THEY WOULD OTHERWISE HAVE
NO CONTACT. I CAN KEEP UP TO DATE WITH CURRENT PEDAGOGIES AND TRENDS IN EDUCATION.
ICT TOOLS ARE MOTIVATING AND RELAVENT TO ALL CHILDREN. THEY NEED TO BE A PART OF THIER DAILY LIVES, AS AVAILABLE IN
THE CLASSROOM AS A PEN AND PAPER AND IMBEDDED INTO DELIVERY OF CURRICULUM .
IMMEDIATE ACESS, LOTS OF IDEAS RESCOURCES
IMPROVED STUDENT MOTIVATION AND ENGAGEMENT IN LEARNING TASKS THROUGH A MORE CONSTRUCTONIST CURRICULUM
IMPROVING STUDENT MOTIVATION AND ENGAGEMENT
INFORMATION RESEARCH/ACCESS; COMMUNICATION SKILLS BEYOND THE CLASSROOM; INTERACTIVE LEARNING EXPERIENCES
BEYOND THE CLASSROOM
INFORMATION SERVICE
INSTANT ABILITY TO FIND   TELEVANT UP TO DATE INFORMATION.   ABILITY   TO BEGIN AND MAINTAIN CONTACT ANYWHERE IN THE
WORLD
INSTANT WORLDWIDE INFORMATION AND INERACTION
INSTANT, CURRENT DOCUMENTS THAT CAN BE READILY ACCESSED BY ANY DEPARTMENTAL MEMBER WITH PRIVACY AND AT REPORT
TIME SECURE INFORMATION THAT ONLY YOU CAN ACCESS. IT IS A WEALTH OF KNOWLEDGE WHETHER IT BE SONG, FICTION, EMAIL,
CONTACTS, UTUBE, ETC
INSTANT, WORLDWIDE AVAILABILITY OF INFORMATION
INTEGRATED WITH CURRICULUM AS IT IS INTEGRATED WITH ADMIN. WORK
INTEGRATION IN THE CLASSROOM THROUGH TOOLS SUCH AS THE INTERACTIVE WHITEBOARD - PROMETHEAN IS THE BEST
EXAMPLE. PUBLISHING AND SHARING. PROMOTING AND ADVERTISING YOUR SCHOOL.
INTERACTIVE AND EDUCATIONAL SITES - WHEN THEY ARE NOT BANNED BY THE DEPT. BRIEF VIDEO DOWNLOADS ON SPECIFIC
SUBJECT AREAS AND WEBQUEST SITES
INTERACTIVE FOR STUDENTS EG, INTERACTIVE WHITE BOARDS ARE TOOLS OF THE FUTURE. DEVELOPS PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS,
ALLOWS FOR CREATIVE PRESENTATIONS, SPEEDS RESEARCH, AND WITH TEACHER PLANNING ASSISTS IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF
CRITICAL LITERACY AND NUMERACY SKILLS. THERE IS A WEALTH OF TEACHING PROGRAMS AVAILABLEVIA THENET . ALLOWS FOR
REAL-TIME PICTURES, VIEWS OF EVENTS AROUND THE WORLD THAT ENGAGE STUDENTS LEARNING.
INTERACTIVE LEARNING ACTIVITIES
IT BRINGS THE WORLD INTO THE CLASSROOM. EVERYTHING IS AT MY FINGERTIPS. OUR STUDENTS ARE DIGITAL NATIVES AND
SHOULD BE PROFICIENT IN THE USE OF DIGITAL TECHNOLOGIES.
IT HAS THE ABILITY TO BECOME 'ANOTHER TEACHER' IN THE CLASSROOM AND AT HOME.




                                       education.au 2008                                              Page 113 of 160
IT IS ABLE TO HELP DEVELOP STUDENTS UNDERSTANDINGS THROUGH A VARIETY OF DIFFERENT FORMATS. IT HELPS WITH THEIR
RESEARCH. THEY CAN BEGIN TO DEVLOP THE LIFE SKILLS OF DISCERNING WHAT IS RELEVANT AND TRUE FROM THE RUBBISH. MANY
STUDENTS FIND THE USE OF COMPUTERS VERY ENGAGING. THEY DISCUSS THEIR WORK MORE WHEN SORKING IN PAIRS AND THE
LEARNING IS THEN MORE SIGNIFICANT.
IT IS EFFICIENT AND OFTEN DISPLAYED IN AN INTERETING WAY. IT IS CHEAP AND EASILY ACCESIBLE.
IT IS THE WAY OF THE FUTURE AND EASY ACCESS FOR EDUCATORS AND STUDENTS SHOULD BE OF A HIGH PRIORITY.
IT IS THE WAY OF THE FUTURE AND WE NEED TO USE THESE RESOURCES TO MOTIVATE, ENCOURAGE AND CONSOLIDATE LEARNING
IN A WAY THAT STUDENTS ARE ABLE TO EASILY LEARN AND MAKE LEARNING REAL.
IT PROVIDES TEACHERS WITH A TOOL THAT ALLOWS AND DEMANDS STUDENTS TO BECOME INDEPENDENT LEARNERS CAPABLE OF
GUIDING THEIR OWN LEARNING. IT GIVES A WIDE RANGE OF POSSIBILITIES FOR STUDENTS TO BE CREATORS IN MORE AUTHENTIC
LEARNING STRATEGIES. IT PROVIDES OPPORTUNITIES FOR STUDENTS TO ENGAGE WITH OTHER STUDENTS ACROSS COUNTRIES AND
ACROSS THE WORLD IN REAL TIME. WOW!
IT WOULD BE GREAT TO BE ABLE TO WORK WITH IT WITHIN THE CLASSROOM, USING COMPUTER FOR EVERY CHILD.
IT'S AN INTERACTIVE MEDIUM THAT KIDS LOVE TO USE
KEEPING UP WITH THE TIMES
LACK OF ON-LINE INTERACTIVE RESOURCES FOR STUDENTS WITH DISABILITIES, ESPECIALLY FROM AUSTRALIA - ENGLAND HAS
WONDERFUL PROGRAMS (E.G. PRIORY WOODS SCHOOL PROGRAMS, WHICH ARE FREE TO DOWNOAD) - I WISH WE HAD EQUIVALENT
SITES IN AUSTRALIA - ALSO FREE!!!
LEARNING NEW STRATEGIES/PLAN & DEVELOP USING UP TO DATE PROGRAM IDEAS, INSTANT EXPLANATIONS/ANSWERS,
COLLIAGIATE CONTACT, STUDENTS CAN LEARN AT OWN LEVEL/RATE,---- MULTITUDE OF POSITIVES.
LESSON IDEAS AND INFORMATION
LINK TO VIDEO DEMONSTRATING LANGUAGE ACTIVITY IN CLASSROOM
LIVING IN AN INCREASINGLY VISUAL WORLD THE INTERNET SERVICES PROVIDE INSTANT ACCESS TO MATERIAL.
LOTS OF DIFFERENT INFORMATION.
MANY ONLINE TEACHING TOOLS WHICH CAN BE USED TO TEACH, TEST OR REINFORCE TEACHING.
MATERIALS ON THE INTERNET BEING UPDATED CONSTANTLY AND NOT BECOMING OUT OF DATE. HELPLINES AVAILABLE ON MOST
SUBJECT. AVAILABILITY OF DISCUSSION GROUPS.
MORE PD TO EQUIP TEACHERS ON THE CURRENT OPPORTUNITIES FOR APPLYING PRACTICES TO THE CLASSROOM
NEW IDEAS
ON MY INTERACTIVE WHITE BOARD EVERY DAY. ESPECIALLY TO INTRODUCE NEW CONCEPTS AND TO ALLOW SMALL GROUP WORK
TO CONSOLIDATE THEIR LEARNING.
ONE OF THE GREATEST OPPORTUNITIES IS BEING ABLE TO BRING THE WIDER WORLD TO THE KIDS, FOR EXAMPLE YOU CAN VISIT
MUSEUMS, ART GALLERIES ETC FROM AROUND THE WORLD WITH YOUR KIDS, IT GIVES THEM A GREAT PERSPECTIVE.
ONLINE LEARNING AND COMMUNICATION
ONLINE LESSONS FOR REMOTE STUDENTS
ONLINE OR REMOTE ACCESS. WOULD LIKE TO SEE VIDEO CONFERENCING TO ALLOW REAL TIME TALKING WITH STUDENTS IN OTHER
PARTS OF THE WORLD.
ONLINE PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT, RESEARCH FOR BOTH STUDENTS AND TEACHERS, ONLINE NETWORKING
ONLINE TEACHING AND LEARNING OFFERS HUGE POTENTIAL. IT PROVIDES A FANTASTIC TOOL FOR TEACHERS TO SUPPORT
STUDENTS WHO PRESENT SPECIAL CHALLENGES BE THEY BEHAVIOURAL OR LEARNING BASED.
OPENING HOURS IS NOT A CONTRIBUTING FACTOR IN WHETHER INFORMATION CAN BE ACCESSED OR SHARED. ONLINE LEARNING
OPPORTUNITIES DEVELOP FLEXIBILITY FOR STUDENTS WHO ARE TRAVELLING WITH PARENTS, ILL, OR THOSE STUDENTS THAT NEED
MORE TIME TO DEVELOP UNDERSTANDING OR COURSE CONTENT.
OPENING UP A WHOLE RANGE OF INFORMATIVE AND ENGAGING SITES TO STIMULATELEARNING AND COMPLIMENT A GRETA
TEACHING PROGRAM.
OPENING UP THE WORLD TO THE STUDENTS AND THE STUDENTS OPENING THEIR MINDS TO THE WORLD
OPENING UP THE WORLD TO THE STUDENTS FINDING RESOURCES APPROPRIATE TO THEIR LEVEL
OPENING UP WORLD/CONTACTS, CURRENT INFORMATION, FREE RESOURCES/TEXTS, CONSTRUCTIVE PLAY, AUTHENTIC AUDIENCES
PLANNING AND REPORTING, ACCESS TO QUALITY RESOURCES, ABILITY TO NETWORK WITH OTHER TEACHERS, PERSON LEARNING
OPPORTUNITIES
PREVIOUSLY AN ICT TEACHER SO SEE THE WAY THAT ICT CAN ENGAGE STUDENTS WHEN USED EFFICIENTLY AND WITH CAREFUL
PREPARATION. TOO OFTEN, STUDENT HAVE DEVELOPED BAD PRACITICE IN USE OF INTERNET & SPEND FAR TOO MUCH TIME




                                     education.au 2008                                            Page 114 of 160
TRAWLING THAN EFFECTIVELY SEARCHING. TEACHERS, ALSO NEED TO KNOW THAT THEY HAVE A RESPONSIBILITY TO TEACH
STUDENTS BY ROLE MODELLING EFFECTIVE SEARCH PRACTICES.
PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT FOR THESE AREAS
PROPERLY STRUCTURED QUESTIONING AND PLANNING LEADS TO EXCELLENT INTERNET RESULTS
PROVIDES OPPORTUNITIES FOR STUDENTS TO LEARN SKILLS PROVIDES OPPORTUNITIES FOR RESEARCH PROVIDES A DIFFERENT
TYPE OF LEARNING EXPERIENCE
PROVIDING A RICH AND UTHENTIC AUDIENCE FOR STUDENT WORK, QUESTIONS, SHARING. OVERCOMING ISOLATION, REDUCING
DIFFERENCES, CREATING RELATIONSHIPS.
PROVISION OF EASILY ACCESSIBLE INFORMATION FOR STUDENTS, ONCE THEY HAVE DEVELOPED SUITABLE SEARCH SKILLS.
PROVISION OF ENGAGING AND RELEVANT INTERACTIVE ACTIVITIES FOR STUDENTS - ONLINE READING BOOKS, MATHS PRACTISE
ACTIVITIES, GAMES AND OPPORTUNITIES TO SEE TEXT ONLINE
PROVISION OF LESSONS THAT ENGAGE, CHALLENGE AND MOTIVATE STUDENTS TO EXPLORE THE WORLD AROUND THEM.
QUICK COMMUNICATION, EASY LOCATION OF TEACHING STRATEGIES, RESOURCES AND IDEAS
READILY ACCESSING TEACHING MATERIAL THAT ENHANCES LESSONS. TO VISUALLY AND AUDIBLY STIMULATE STUDENT THINKING
AND UNDERSTANDING OF TOPICS. KEEPING IN CONTACT WITH OTHER EDUCATORS IN PD OPPORTUNITIES.
READY ACCESS FOR KIDS TO INFO, SOFTWARE AND PUBLISHING
READY ACCESS TO INFORMATION. WE ALWAYS USE IT AS A STARTING RESOURCE, HOWEVER, WE NOW REQUIRE OUR CHILDREN TO
USE A PRIMARY SOURCE IF POSSIBLE AND A TEXT (BOOK, JOURNAL, ENCYCLOPEDIA.
READY ACCESS. MANY DIFFERENT SITES TO FIND SUPPORTING ACTIVITIES FOR CLASSROOM ACTIVITIES. USEFUL TO FIND CURRENT
RESEARCH DOCUMENTS.
REAL LIFE CONTEXTS, THE ABILITY FOR STUDENTS TO PUBLISH THEMSELVES, COLLABORATION, PROBLEM SOLVING
REAL LIFE LEARNING
RECORDS MANGEMENT AND REPORTING AS WELL AS ONLINE TEACHING AND LEARNING OPPORTUNITIES THROUGH THE PORTAL WILL
SUPPORT TEACHERS AND ADMINISTRATORS AND ENABLE INDIVIDUALISED PROGRAMS.
RELEVANT ON-LINE INFORMATION PITCHED AT THE STUDENTS' LEVEL IS VERY IMPORTANT. SAFE NETWORKING BETWEEN
INDIVIDUALS AND GROUPS OF STUDENTS IN ON-LINE COMMUNITIES. ASSISTING IN THE PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT OF TEACHERS
AND THE ABILITY TO BE "IN TOUCH" IMMEDIATELY.
RELEVANT, CURRENT INFORMATION IN A RAPIDLY CHANGING WORLD EACH CLASS HAVING ACCESS TO TECHNOLOGY SUCH AS
SMART BOARDS ON-GOING INQUIRY BASED LEARNING
RESEARCH
RESEARCH ONLINE LESSON DELIVERY AND COMMUNICATION WITH GEOGRAPHICALLY ISOLATED STUDENTS
RESEARCH, ACTIVITIES FOR THE CLASSROOM, KEEPING UP TO DATE WITH WHAT IS HAPPENING IN MY DEPARTMENT.
RESEARCH, SUPPORT, INCREASE IN KNOWLEDGE
RESEARCHING / GAINING BACKGROUND INFORMATION ALTHOUGH A LOT OF IT IS WRITTEN FOR ADULTS AND CAN BE A TURN-OFF
FOR PRIMARY SCHOOL KIDS.
RESOURCES FOR STUDENTS ON BLOGS ETC THAT ARE SPECIFIC TO THEIR CLASS WORK
SCHOOL BASED INTRANET FOR STUDENTS RESEARCH AND INFORMATION GATHERING PUBLISHING OF WORK
SCHOOL INFORMATION IS CENTRALISED & ACCESSABLE TO DET. TEACHING RESOURCES AVAILABLE ONLINE.
SEARCH ENGINES
SHARING IDEAS .AND ASAN EXCITING WAY OF ENGAGING STUDENTS
SHARING IDEAS WITH COLLEAGUES AROUND THE WORLD.
SHARING OF IDEAS, STRATEGIES, PROGRAMMING SCAFFOLDSETC FOR TEACHERS, WHICH SAVES TIME. ALSO ASSESSMENT
CRITERIA AND RECORDING,... POSSIBLY DIAGNOSTIC ASSESSMENT PROGRAMMES IN LITERACY AND MATHS. FOR STUDENTS IT
ENABLES SOME COMPETITION WITH ON-LINE PROGRAMMES LIKE MATHLETICS. ICT ALSO OFFERS GREAT SCOPE FOR LITERACY
ACTIVITIES, ESPECIALLY INCORPORATING PROGRAMMES LIKE POWERPOINT INTO CHILDRENS' WRITTEN EXPRESSION - VERY
MOTIVATING ESPECIALLY FOR BOYS!
SHARING RESOURCES
SOCIAL WEB SITES - BLOGS, FACEBOOK, MY SPACE ETC.
SOME BRILLIANT INTERACTIVE SITES THAT EXPLAIN CONCEPTS AND ALLOW STUDENTS TO EXPLORE CONCEPTS BETTER THAN IN A
CLASS WITHOUT INTERNET ACCESS. BEING PART OF AN ONLINE TEACHING COMMUNITY THAT SHARES IDEAS. OPPORTUNITY TO
FIND INFORMATION ABOUT SO MANY TOPICS.
SPEED ACCESS TO A WIDE RANGE OF INFORMATION OPPORTUNITY FOR INDIVIDUAL AS WELL AS GROUP LEARNING




                                     education.au 2008                                            Page 115 of 160
SPEED OF COMMUNICATION AND ABILITY TO CROSS BOUNDARIES/DIVIDES (GEOGRAPHICAL, SOCIAL, POLITICAL, RACIAL ETC.)
SPEED, BREADTH, ACCESSIBILITY
STUDENT INEQUITY OVERCOME BY THE DISTANCE BARRIER
STUDENTS ARE KEEN TO INTERACT WITH COMPUTERS AND WHITEBOARDS AND THEY CAN LEARN BY TRYING AND NOT JUST
LISTENING TO ME. STUDENTS CAN WORK AT THEIR OWN PACE AND INTEREST AREAS.
STUDENTS ARE TOTALLY IMMERSED IN A MULTIMEDIA WORLD. THE ABILITY TO CONNECT TO THE WIDER COMMUNITY, CHAT,
SHARING OF EXPEREINCES ETC. THAT WE HAVE A WEALTH OF INFORMATION AND RESOURCES AT OUR FINGERTIPS. STUDENTS ARE
ABLE TO WORK WITHIN THEIR OWN ABILITY BUT WORK INDEPENDENTLY AND MAKE PROGRESS AT THEIR OWN RATE.
STUDENTS CAN PUT TOGETHER BLOCS IN THE TARGET LANGUAGE. CAN ACCESS LANGUAGE SITES FOR ON-LINE LEARNING.
STUDENTS CAN DO WEBQUESTS. THIS IS ALSO RESTRICTED BY THE SMALL NUMBER OF COMPUTERS AVAILABLE TO STUDENTS.
STUDENTS CAN USE A VARIETY OF PROGRAMS THAT MAYBE OTHERWISE NOT AVALIABLE TO THEM. STUDENTS ARE ABLE TO
COMMUNICATE WITH OTHERS IN PLACES ALL OVER THE WORLD AND GET A SENCE OF A VARIETY OF CULTURES AND PLACES.
EXCELLENT TOOL FOR DEVELOPING RESEARCHING SKILLS.
SUPPORTING STUDENT UNDERSTANDING THROUGH A MEDIUM THAT WE ARE BECOMING MORE DEPENDENT ON AS A SOCIETY
TAKES THE STUDENTS INTO ANOTHER SPECTRUM BEYOND THEIR CLASSROOM
TEACHER NETWORKING.
TEACHERS CAN BE FACILITATORS AND TAILOR PROGRAMS MORE TO INDIVIDUALS. IT IS MORE APPEALING TO THE EYE AND SEEMS
TO GET THE CHILDREN'S INTEREST, ESPECIALLY THE BOYS.
TEACHING REMOTELY
THAT ALL THE STUDENTS CAN GAIN ACCESS TO THE SAME INFORMATION OF RESOURCES INSTANTLY WITHOUT HAVING TO BUY
MULTIPLE COPIES OR WAIT TWO WEEKS FOR IT TO ARRIVE IN THE MAIL.
THE "WORLD" BROUGHT DIRECTLY INTO THE CLASSROOM. THE INFORMATION IS USUALLY CURRENT.
THE ABILITY FOR ALL STUDENTS TO CONFIDENTLY ACCESS INFORMATION PERTINENT TO THEIR NEEDS. IT CAN BE A WONDERFUL.
HOWEVER, IT IS IMPORTANT TO TEACH STUDENTS HOW TO DISCRIMINATE ON WHAT IS BEING OFFERED TO THEM ONLINE.
THE ABILITY TO ACCESS UP TO DATE INFORMATION, ACCESSING RESOURCES THAT HAVE ALREADY BEEN DEVELOPED BY TEACHERS,
CHILDREN FIND THE USE OF THE INTERNET MOTIVATING
THE ABILITY TO MOVE OUT OF THE CLASS INTO THE WORLD WITHOPUT LEAVING THE ROOM
THE ABILITY TO SHARE WITH OTHERS, TO GET FEEDBACK ON THINGS WE'VE DONE FROM AROUND THE WORLD AND TO GET NEW
IDEAS FOR TEACHING.
THE BEST OPPORTUNITIES ARE IN STUDIES OF SOCIETY AND ENVIRONMENT, ENGLISH AND MATHS.
THE CHILDREN ARE INTERESTED AND BECOME ENGAGED IN THEIR OWN LEARNING WHEN THEY ARE ABLE TO USE COMPUTERS TO
HELP WITH THEIR LEARNING
THE FACT THAT IT IS INFINITE AND EVERY CHANGING, LIKE OPEN-ENDED LEARNING EXPERIENCES.
THE FLEXIBITY IT AFFORDS THE CREATIVE WAYS OF ENGANGING STUDENTS, STAFF AND THE SCHOOL COMMUNITY STUDENTS TO
INTERACT WITH OTHER ACROSS THE SCHOOL, ACROSS THE DISTRICT AND INTERNATIONALLY THE PROVISION OF IMMEDIATE
FEEDBACK TO PARENTS AND THE ABILITY OF PARENTS TO VIEW STUDENTS' WORK FROM THEIR WORKSITE.
THE GREATEST OPPORTUNITY IS THE FACT THAT KIDS ARE DIGITAL NATIVES. THEY ARE INTRINSICALLY MOTIVATED TO LEARN IN
THIS WAY. I BELIEVE CHILDREN OF TODAY ARE VISUAL LEARNERS. THE INTERNET SUPPORTS THEIR LEARNING IN THIS WAY.
THE INSTANT INFORMATION THAT IT GIVES A LEARNER. ALSO THE CONNECTION TO THE OUTSIDE WORLD.
THE OPPORTUNITIES ARE VAST BUT I SEE MY ROLE AS ASSISTING STUDNETS TO THINK CRITICALLY ABOUT THEIR USE OF THE
INTERNET AND TO CRITICALLYEVAULTE THE SITES THAT THEY VISIT AND THE SOURCES OF INFORMATION THAT THEY ACCESS. THE
OPPORTUNITY TO FORM GOOGLE GROUPS WHERE TEACHERS CAN GIVE STUDENTS FEEDBACK ON THEIR WORK AND STUDENTS CAN
FORM ONLINE LEARNING COMMUNITIES.
THE POSSIBILITY TO BE ABLE TO DELIVER TO HOME SCHOOLERS VIA THE INTERNET.
THE PROVISION OF INTERACTIVE ACTIVITIES FOR STUDENTS TO ENGAGE STUDENTS. THE DEVELOPMENT OF MORE WEB BASED
TOOLS THAT CAN BE INCORPORATED IN LEARNING PROGRAMS SUCH AS WE ARE SEEING AT PRESENT WITH SOCIAL NETWORKING
TOOLS. THE DEVELOPMENT OF MORE INTUITIVE LEARNING MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS.
THE RAPID TRANSMISSION OF GOOD IDEAS TO THE TEACHING COMMUNITY.
THE RESOURCES AVAILABLE ARE ENDLESS, HIGHLY MOTIVATIONAL FOR CHILDREN AND HELP ME CATER FOR THE VARYING ABILITIES
OF MY CLASS
THE SPEED OF WHICH YOU CAN DEMONSTRATE TO CHILDREN IF WE WANT TO LOOK UP SOMETHING RATHER THAN RESEARCHING
BOOKS ETC, ESPECIALLY AS WE ARE A HIGH SCHOOL FOR EDUCATION SUPPORT STUDENTS
THE STUDENTS ARE HIGHLY MOTIVATED AND PREPARED TO HAVE A GO AS OPPOSED TO MORE TRADITIONAL MEANS OF TL




                                     education.au 2008                                            Page 116 of 160
THE WEALTH OF INFORMATION AVAILABLE, AND THE OPPURTUNITIES FOR TEACHING REAL LIFE RESEARCH SKILLS. ALSO
OPPURTUNITY TO SHOW TH ENEED TO ASSESS RELIABILITY OF SITES, WIKIPEDIA VERY INACCURATE ABOUT OUR SUBURB, GREAT
REALLY FOR MY LESSON.
THE WIDE VARIETY OF OPINIONS AND EXPERIENCES THAT HAVE BECOME AVAILABLE TO STUDENTS, INSTEAD OF THE PREVIOUS
'SAMENESS' OF THE PEOPLE THEY INTERACTED WITH.
THE WORLD IS ALL ABOUT MEDIA. RELEVANT LEARNING ONLINE MAKES LEARNING SO MUCH MORE VIBRANT FOR OUR STUDENTS IN
AREAS THAT NEED TO BE SEEN BEYOND THE CLASSROOM REALM.
THERE ARE SO MANY ONLINE RESOURCES AVAILABLE TO USE WITH STUDENTS, BUT THEY NEED INCLASS ACCESS TO COMPUTERS
AND INTERNET. THE RESOURCES ARE NOT AVAILABLE ON MASS WITHIN THE SCHOOLS.
THIS IS MERELY THE FIRST STEP IN PROVIDING READY TO USE COMMUNICATION SUSTEMS. IT IS ONLY LIMITED BY BUREACRATIC
MANAGEMENT. ALREADY THIS IS MAKING ITSELF FELT. A SHAME REALLY, ISN'T IT? I WONDER WHAT THE NEXT PLATFORM WILL LOOK
LIKE?
TO GIVE AN EXCITING MEDIUM IN WHICH TO TEACH A VARIETY OF SKILLS AND ABILITIES
TO HAVE THE TIME AND RESOURCES TO USE THEM IN THE CLASSROOM
TO MAKE LESSONS RELEVANT AND ACCESSIBLE TO THE CURRENT CROP OF 'CYBERKIDS' WHO KNOW AS MUCH IF NOT MORE THAN
MOST TEACHERS ABOUT MODERN TECHNOLOGY AND THE EMERGING FORM OF LITERACY.
TO SUPPORT LEARNING. LEARNING ABOUT THE REAL WORLD IN THAT YOU CAN'T ALWAYS BELIEVE WHAT YOU READ. IT GIVES CHN
CONFIDENCE IN USING THE INTERNET AS A TOOL THROUGH GUIDED PRACTISE. A WIDE RANGE OF INFORMATION IS AVAILABLE TO
THE STUDENTS. THEY JUST NEED STUCTURE, SUPERVISION AND GUIDANCE TO ENSURE THEY ARE USING THE INTERNET AS AN
APPROPRIATE LEARNING TOOL IN CLASS.
UNLIMITED. WHAT I SEE TODAY WILL BE VERY DIFFERENT IN TWO YEARS TIME. IT IS CONTINUALLY CHANGING AND IMPROVING THE
OPPORTUNITIES AVAILABLE. GIVE TEACHERS THE TIME, FUNDING AND SUPPORT TO "PLAY" WITH THE TECHNOLOGY AND YOU WILL
SEE IDEAS THAT CAN NOT BE IMAGINED.
UNSURE
UP TO DATE INFO NEW IDEAS
UP TO DATE PROVISION OF INFORMATION
UP TO DATE RESOURCES, ENGAGING MATERIALS, QUICK REFERENCE POINTS
USING DATABASES FOR RESOURCES FOR USE IN CONJUCTION WITH THOSE I HAVE AND ALSO INPUT FROM OTHER PEOPLE TEACHING
THE SAME SUBJECTS.
VARIETY OF INFORMATION AND ACCESSIBILITY
VARIETY OF LESSONS AVAILABLE.
VOLUME OF RESOURCES & INFORMATION
WE WEREE/ARE INVOLVED WITH THE DEPARTMENT'S ONLINE TEACHING AND LEARNING SYSTEMS SERVICE AND I BELIEVE THAT
THIS IS THE WAY OF THE FUTURE AND I BASE A LOT OF MY TEACHING ON THIS.
WEB 2.0 TOOLS, INTERNET BASED APPS, PODCASTING, ETC.
WEB QUESTS, TEACJOMG CHILDREN RESEARCH SKILLS SUCH AS KEYWORDS, NOTETAKING AND NOT PLAGIARISM.
WEBLOGS ETC. THE INFORMATION SUPERHIGHWAY IS GROWING EXPENENTIALLY, BOTH FOR STUDENTS AND TEACHERS. THERE IS
HEAPS OF TEACHER RELATED INFORMATION, LESSON PLANS, ANIMATIONS ETC TO ACCESS. THE USE OF THE GLOBAL VILLAGE
CAN MAKE EDUCATION MORE INTERESTING AND RELEVANT.
WEBQUESTS, AND INTERNET BASED PROJECTS. I THINK THE REALITY IS THAT IT IS (WITH YOU TUBE ETC) NOW A MAIN PART OF
YOUTH CULTURE AND THUS WE MUST FIND MORE EFFECTIVE AND RELEVANT WAYS OF COVERING IT
WIDE VARIETY OF RESOURCES. KIDS ABLE TO USE DIFFERENT SKILLS
WIDER ACCESS TO EDUCATIONAL VIEWPOINTS, GREATER ACCESS TO TEACHER RESOURCES AND EASE OF COMMUNICATION.
WORLD WIDE OPPORTUNITIES FOR RESEARCH; COMMUNICATIONS AND A NEVER ENDING SUPPY OF RESOURCES.
WOULD BE VERY USEFUL TO HELP CATER FOR THE WIDE RANGE OF ABILITIES IN THE ROOM.

TEACHING AID

Q16.                  What professional support in the use of online services and tools for teaching and
                      learning would you find most valuable?




                                     education.au 2008                                              Page 117 of 160
ACT
HAND ON, INTENSIVE, WORKSHOPS AND FORUMS TO TRULY GET TO TRY OUT NEW AND EMERGING TECHNOLOGIES (AND NEW USES
FOR EXISTING ONES). TOO OFTEN WE KNOW ABOUT NEW TECHNOLOGIES BUT DON'T HAVE A CHANCE TO REALLY PLAY WITH THEM
TO SEE HOW (OR IF) WE CAN MAKE USE OF THEM IN TEACHING AND LEARNING (AND HERE I WOULD ALSO INCLUDE STAFF
DEVELOPMENT).

GOOD ACCESS TO DATABASES GOOD ANALYSIS TOOLS GOOD TEACHING SUPPORT SYSTEMS
GOOD TRAINING AND DESIGN - WHICH UNFORTUNATELY IS CERTAINLY LACKING
GREATER AVAILABILITY OF TECHNICAL SUPPORT STAFF.
HARD TO SAY
HAVING IT TRAINERS GET F...ING TEACHING QUALS OR AT LEAST SOME TEACHING SKILLS. THEY ARE HOPELESS. WE ALL GET LOST
AFTER THE FIRST THREE MIMUTES OF A UPDATE TRAINING SESSION SO WE EITHER WALK OUT OR DO MARKING.
HAVING SOMEONE ON HAND THAT SPECIALISISES IN BOTH THE AREA OF LEARNING AND DEVELOPING ICT RESOURCES (AS WE ARE
VERY LUCKY TO HAVE). ONLINE RESOURCES ARE ONLY OF LIMITED VALUE
HELP DESK
HELP WITH NEW SYSTEMS AND WHEN SYSTEM CRASHES
HELPDESKS
I AM GOOD AT SUPPORTING MYSELF, BUT THE HELP I CURRENTLY HAVE FOMR MY LIBRARY, MY FLEXIBLE LEARNING AND DELIVERY
SERVICE AND MY IT HELP ARE EXCELLENT. THE STUDENTS NEED MORE SUPPORT THAN ME IN USING THE TECHNOLOGY, FROM
BASIC RESOURCES (EG COMPUTERS, BROADBAND, SOFTWARE), TO SOFTWARE HARDWARE ISSUES ETC.
I AM NOT SURE ABOUT THIS QUESTION
I AM THE PROFESSIONAL SUPPORT...!
I FIND THE BLACKBOARD HELP TEAM HERE AT THE UNIVERSITY TERRIFIC. THE HELPDESK TEAM ALSO ARE AVAILABLE 24/7
I HAVE NEVER REALLY FOUND ANY 'IN SERVICE' TRAINING PROGRAMS EFFECTIVE RATHER HAVE FOUND 'NEED TO KNOW' FOCUS
MORE EFFECTIVE IE: COLLEAGUES ARE BETTER 'TEACHERS' AND 'SUPPORT' PEOPLE IN THESE INSTANCES AS THEY OFTEN SUGGEST
SOMETHING THEY HAVE FOUND/LEARNT TO DO , MAINLY BECAUSE WE TEACHING/USING SIMILAR MATERIAL. GROUP INSTRUCTION IN
IT IS OFTEN A FRUSTRATING EXPERIENCE DUE TO THE FACT THAT PARTICIPANTS ARE AN ECLECTIC GROUP AND ALSO ALL AT
DIFFERENT IT KNOWLEDGE/EXPRERIENCE LEVELS.
I JUST WANT TO GET OUT OF THIS SURVEY
I WOULD FIND IT VERY VALUABLE IF IT WERE NOT THE CASE THAT MOST THINGS ASSUME YOU AREA WINDOWS USER AND DON'T
WORK PROPERLY IF YOU ARE NOT. THIS IS A PROBLEM FOR THE STUDENT USERS AND FOR THE INSTRUCTOR.
I'M QUITE HAPPY WITH MY OWN ABILITY TO MANAGE AND USE ONLINE T&L TOOLS, THOUGH I'D LIKE TO WORK MORE CLOSELY WITH
EDUCATIONALISTS TO RESEARCH THE IMPACT OF MY PRACTICE.
IMMEDIATE SUPPORT IF NETWORKS OR SERVERS GO DOWN.
INDIVIDUAL AND SMALL GROUP TASK-ORIENTED COACHING RELATED TO SPECIFIC PROJECTS OR NEEDS
INFRASTRUCTURE TO SUPPORT ITS USE IN THE CLASSROOM
INITIAL TRAINING, AND ON DEMAND BACKUP SUPPORT, ( THESE ARE GENERALLY AVIALBLE IN MY INSTITUTION BUT I DON'T OFTEN

JUST IN TIME HELP AND PROF DEV WORKSHOPS
LESS FILTERING
LESSON / ACTIVITY DEMONSTRATIONS, SYSTEM LEVEL TEMPLATES AND PLANNING SUPPORT ("DECISION MANAGEMENT
SOFTWARE"). LOVE THE IDEA OF A PERSON ON TAP TO ASK QUESTIONS (EDUCAITONAL DESIGNERS), BUT ACTUALLY EXPECT THEY
HAVE MORE VALUE WHEN THEY PROMPT YOU TO THINK AND ACT (RATHER THAN PUTTING THINGS OFF, DOING THE MINIMAL, ETC).
LINKS TO RELEVANT WEBSITES
LOW LEVEL - A PA TO DO THE REGULAR WORK TIME TO KEEP UP WITH TECHNOLOGY CHANGES (MAY BE ANSWERED BY THE FIRST
REASON)
MORE INSTITUTION SUPPORT FOR DEVELOPING SKILLS EG IN WORKLOAD TIME ALLOCATIONS
MORE PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT IN THE USE OF ALL ONLINE SERVICES AND TOOLS FOR TEACHING STAFF WOULD MAKE MY JOB
OF SUPPORTING TEACHING STAFF MUCH EASIER - TEND TO SPEND TIME SHOW THEM THE BASICS
MORE RESEARCH! NOT ENOUGH EVIDENCE AVAILABLE ON WHAT WORKS AND WHAT DOESN'T
MORE TIME TO DEVELOP MY SKILLS
MORE TIME TO LEARN...

MORE TRAINING AND INTEGRATIONS OF THE TIME REQUIRED TO INITIALLY USE THIS RESOURCE. DURING THE SETTING UP PHASE
THIS CAN BE VERY TIME CONSUMING.
MOST IMPORTANTLY, RECOGNITION OF ELEARNING AT THE SENIOR LEVELS OF ORGANISATION, PARTICULARLY IN THE INCLUSION OF
EDUCATIONAL USE OF EMERGING TECHNOLOGY AND INNOVATIVE TEACHING PRACTICES IN FORMALISED POLICY MEASURES, AND
RECOGNITION/REWARD OF THE SCHOLARSHIP OF TEACHING. BUT ALSO, EXAMPLES OF BEST PEDAGOGICAL PRACTICE IN EMERGING
TECHNOLOGY - SUCH AS SHOWCASES - AND INCREASED EMPHASIS ON EDUCATION USE OF EMERGING TECHNOLOGY, RATHER THAN
JUST BASIC TECHNICAL SUPPORT.
MY ROLE IS TO PROVIDE PROFESSIONAL SUPPORT. I DO MOST OF MY RESEARCH AND MONITOR NEW DEVELOPMENTS MYSELF.
MY VISTA E LEARNING IS A DISASTER. FILE STRUCTURES AND MANIPULATION ARE POORLY ORGANIZED. REPLACE VISTA WITH A
DRAG AND DROP FILE SYSTEM

PROFESSIONAL DATA BASE
PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT TIME AWAY FROM DAY TO DAY WORK TO EXPLORE AND LEARN ABOUT WHAT IS GOING ON OUT
THERE.
PROPER INSTRUCTION IN HOW TO USE COMPUTER SYSTEMS. EXPERTS WHIZ THROUGH STEPS IN WORKSHOPS. I LEARN MORE
FROM MY SON AT HOME, ONE-ON-ONE, STEP-BY-STEP. BETTER INSTRUCTION IS ESSENTIAL & BACK-UP WHEN THE TECHNOLOGY
DOESN'T WORK. TOO OFTEN IN THE LECTURE THEATRE THE EQUIPMENT WON'T WORK. UNIVERSITIES SAVE MONEY BY
RETRENCHING THE IT SPECIALISTS.
QUALITY REFERENCES
RAPID REAL TIME ONLINE SUPPORT TO SOLVE ISSUES AND PROBLEMS IN UTILISING THE SOFTWARE AVAILABLE. MUCH TIME IS

SKILLS DEVELOPMENT - AND MORE CONSISTENT INTERFACES BETWEEN TOOLS
SOFTWARE LICENSES. PROGRAMMING SUPPORT FOR MORE COMPLEX ASPECTS          OF TEACHING AND RESEARCH, AT LEAST FOR
MAJOR PROJECTS.
SOMEBODY TO DO THE DOGSBODY WORK OF SEETING UP LEARNING MODULES,         AND BRIEF TRAINING AS NEW FEATURES AND
OPPORTUNITIES ARISE
SOMEONE DOING IT FOR ME SO I CAN FOCUS ON OTHER THINGS
SOMEONE TO TALK TO ME ABOUT THE EDUCATIONAL DESIGN OF WEBSITES, AND TO SUGGEST WAYS OF ACHIEVING MY TEACHING
GOALS USING TECHNOLOGY AND TECHNIQUES I MAY NOT YET HAVE THOUGHT OF.
SPECIFIC TRAINING
STABLE TOOLS THAT WORK ACROSS VARIOUS PLATFORMS ALONG WITH QUALITY SELF-SUPPORT MATERIAL
SUPPORT IN INTEGRATING RESOURCES
SYSTEM ADMINISTRATION, E-LEARNING ADVICE
TECH HELP THAT RESPONDS QUICKLY. HIGH BAND WIDTH (SPEED PLEASE!!)
TECHNICAL SUPPORT
TECHNICAL SUPPORT FOR NEW SOFTWARE PROGRAMS.
THAT WEB SITES HAD BETTER WORD FILTERS, SO WHEN YOU DO A SEARCH THE MOST RELEVANT COMES FIRST
THE COURSES RUN BY EDT@C WERE USEFUL IN INCREASING MY SKILLS AND THE LUNCHTIME SEMINARS SHOWED ME WHAT OTHER
PEOPLE WERE DOING IN ICT SUPPORTED LEARNING. I HOPE THE REVAMPED LEARNING AND TEACHING UNIT GETS INTO THIS AREA.
THE LIBRARY STAFF HAVE BEEN POSITIVE IN ASSISTING ME TO UPGRADE MY ONLINE SKILLS, SO I CAN AGAIN TRACK DOWN AND
FOLLOW RELEVANT JOURNALS MONTH BY MONTH. I USED TO DO THIS IN THE LIBRARY BUT ITS EASIER ON THE WEB
THE DEVELOPMENT OF FLEXIBLE AND SMART INTEGRATED ONLINE LEARNING SYSTEMS THAT BALANCE THE IN-DEPTH TECHNICAL
AND THE PROFESSIONAL COMPETENCIES REQUIRED OF GRADUATES.

VENDOR PROVIDED SUPPORT GENERALLY THE MOST USEFUL
VENDOR SUPPORT AND USER COMMUNITIES AND LISTS.
WE USE WEB CT, AND IT'S AWFUL. BLACKBOARD WAS WAY MORE HELPFUL AND USER FRIENDLY.
WEB BASED TEACHING PROGRAMS SUCH AS WEBCT ARE HORROBLE TO USE - THEY NEED AS MUCH SUPPORT AS I CAN FIND

EDUCATIONAL SOFTWARE SCHOOLS ACROSS AUSTRALIAN RECOMMEND AND ARE USING REGULARLY.
ACCESS TO TRAINING TO UPDATE MY RATHER DATED QUALIFICATIONS IN ICT
ASSISTANCE WITH THE USE OF ICT FOR A MULTI-AGED, MULTI-LEVEL AND MULTI-ABILITY GROUP.
AWARENESS OF WHAT IS AVAILABLE
BEING PART OF AN ONLINE COMMUNITY THAT WILL RSS BEST PRACTICE RESOURCES IN CURRICULUM ARES WOULD BE USEFUL. A
NATIONAL CURRICULUM WOULD BE BEST SUPPORTED VIA THIS KIND OF RESOURCE.
CONTINUOUS PD IN A VARIETY OF AREAS AND SHARING WITH COLLEAGUES IN OTHER SCHOOLS AS WELL
GENERAL USAGE AND USING ADVANCED SEARCH ENGINE ASPECTS
HOW TO INCORPORATE DIGITAL PHOTOGRAPHY IN PRESENTATIONS
HOW TO USE DIFFERENT RESOURCES MORE EFFICIENTLY AND EFFECTIVELY
I WOULD LIKE TO SEE MORE SCHOOL BASED PROFESSIONAL SUPPORT TO TEACHERS.
ICT FORUMS
IMPROVED HELP SECTIONS IN AREAS ON THE WEB. HELP SECTIONS THAT ARE USEFUL NOT CONFUSING. INTUITIVE HELP THAT IS
USEFUL OFFLINE. IE INTERNET NOT WORKING -HELP SUGGESTS GO TO HELP ONLINE?
INFORMATION ABOUT EFFECTIVE ONLINE SERVICES AND PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT ACTIVITIES *RESOURCES TO RUN
WORKSHOPS TO CREATE AWARENESS AND TO DEMONSTRATE THE EFFECTIVENESS OF THIS METHODOLOGY *SUPPORT AND
GUIDANCE TO DEVELOP ONLINE SYSTEMS TO MEET THE REQUIREMENTS OF THE EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTION
INFORMATION ON ACTUAL USEFUL WEBSITES INSTEAD OF SIFTING THROUGH LOTS OF SITES UNTIL YOU FIND A GOOD ONE
IT WOULD BE GREAT TO HAVE SOMEONE WHO IS A NOMINATED ICT TEACHER AND WHO IS UP TO DATE IN SUPPLYING ALL THE
INFORMATION TO A SCHOOL OR TO THE TWO SCHOOLS I WORK AT. WE NEED A FULL TIME PERSON WHO IS UPSKILLED CONTINUOSLY
AND WHO IS PREPARED TO SHOW TEACHERS WHERE TO FIND PROGRAMS TO SUPPORT THEIR TEACHING IDEAS AND WHO KNOWS
ABOUT RESOURCES AND ALSO CAN TAKE CLASSES TO SHOW SPECIFICS ON HARDWARD AND SOFTWARE, INTERNET ETIQUETTE ETC.
IT IS NOTHING BUT BITS AND PIECES AT THE MOMENT OR HOTCH POTC
JUST UPDATES ON WHAT IS NEW AND HOW THEY ARE PRACTICAL
LAMS ANY RESOURCES WEBQUESTS
MAKE SURE THE EQUIPMENT IS WORKING AND GREATER CARE USED WITH FILTERING MECHANISMS. SOME SITES DEEMED TO BE
NOT EDUCATIONAL WHEN IN FACT THEY ARE. FOR EXAMPLE, ABC KIDS - CLICK ON GAMES AND YOU ARE IMMEDIATELY BLOCKED.
MODELING, FACE TO FACE PD. ONLINE IS FINE BUT HAVING AN ENTHUSIASTIC MENTOR IS MORE MOTIVATIONAL.
MODELLING
MORE COMPUTERS SO ALL OF US CAN ACCESS (AND FASTER)
MORE ON THE PORTAL
MORE OPPORTUNITY TO LEARN ABOUT WHAT IS POSSIBLE, AND PRACTICAL EXAMPLES OF USING THIS IN THE CLASSROOM.
MORE TIME AND A DATA BASE THAT YOU CAN SEARCH FOR USEFUL SITES THAT PEOPLE HAVE USED SUCCESSFULLY. PD ON OTHER
IDEAS THAT I DON'T KNOW ABOUT.
MORE TRAINING IN CREATING WEB 2.0 TOOLS SUCH AS WIKI'S AND ONLINE COMMUNITIES. MORE PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT
FOCUSING ON BETTER WAYS TO USE THESE TECHNOLOGIES IN A MEANINGFUL WAY IN THE CLASSROOM.
MOST OF THE SUPPORT WE GET IS GREAT, SOMETIMES YOU GET SOMEONE WHO NEEDS TO REMEMBER THAT YOU DO HAVE A BRAIN.
SOME OF THE TOOLS WE HAVE BEEN GIVEN ARE NOT YET UP TO SCRATCH, TO COMPLICATED TO USE. THE THING I WOULD LIKE MOST
OF ALL IS A DATA BASED DRIVEN WEB SITE (EG IETA) THAT ALLOWS PEOPLE TO UPLOAD CONTENT WITH THE MINIMUM OF FUSS.
MANY MORE EDUCATORS WOULD CONSIDER USING THE NET FOR ROLLING STORIES, SHARING WORK ETC IF GETTING IT UP WAS
MADE EASY. MOST DON'T WANT TO KNOW WEB DESIGN.
NETWORK PROBLEM SOLVING AND MAINTENANCE
NOT APPLICABLE FOR MY ADMINISTRATION ROLE.
NOT SOME THING I CAN COMMENT ON
ONGOING SUPPORT
ONLINE FORUMS, ONLINE COURSES, CHAT SESSIONS
ONLINE PROFESSIONAL LEARNING, TROUBLE SHOOTING HELP, INPUT ON PEDAGOGY.

SYSTEM-WIDE PROVISION OF WIRELESS INTERNET ACCESS IN SCHOOLS AND DEET BUILDINGS. GREATER SUPPORT FOR PEOPLE
WHO WANT TO BE MORE INNOVATIVE WITH THE USE OF MACINTOSH COMPUTERS.
TEACHING ITEAS FREE DOWNLOAD AND HOW TO USE THEM
TECH SUPPORT IS IMPORTANT. PD WHEN NEW SOFTWARE/HARDWARE COMES, EG THE INTERACTIVE WHITE BOARD AND INTERNET
ACCESS TO MAKE IT FUNCTION BETTER - STAFF ARE UNAWARE OF THE NEED TO STAY UPTODATE.
THE UNIVERSITY COURSE I DID WAS THE BEST THING I EVER DID AND I STILL USE IT TODAY. CERTIFICATE II IN IT APPLICATIONS. THE
OTHER COURSES THE DPT ED PUT OUT FOR TEACHERS WAS JUST PATHETIC AND COULDN'T BE USED IN THE CLASSROOMS AT ALL.
TIME TO LEARN
TIME TO LEARN AND SOMEONE TO GUIDE THAT LEARNING SO THE TOOLS/SERVICES ARE FULLY EXPLORED. I FIND THAT LEARNING ON
LINE IS NOT AS SUCCESSFUL AS FACE TO FACE. THAT MAY BE A FORCED TIME ISSUE. I DO NEED FOLLOW UP FOR A NUMBER OF
WEEKS AFTER SO I CAN ASK QUESTIONS AS THEY COME UP. WE HAVE FOUND AT THIS SCHOOL STAFF HAVE LEARNT BEST WHEN
THEY REALLY NEED TO KNOW THE INFORMATION. HAVING KEY STAFF, TEACHERS AND TEACHING ASSISTANTS, COMPETENT HAS
HELPED OTHERS LEARN EACH AND EVERY DAY.
TIME TO LEARN. IN SCHOOL HOURS PD
TIME! TIME TO ACCESS/SEARCH, PROVIDE SUPPORT FOR COLLEAGUES, PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT
TIME. SPACE TO EXPLORE AND EXPERIMENT MORE.
TIPS FOR SITES/PROGRAMS THE TEACHERS COULD USE
TRAINING IS IMPORTANT BUT NOT JUST IN SHOWING TEACHERS HOW TO USE A PROGRAM. ON-GOING SUPPORT TO ENHANCE
INTEGRATED USE OF ICT IS CRITICAL TO ENCOURAGE TEACHERS TO EMBED ICT IN THEIR PROGRAMS AND CONTINUALLY IMPROVE
THEIR OWN PERSONAL SKILLS.
TROUBLESHOOTING AND MORE MANDATORY PD FOR TEACHING STAFF
TROUBLESHOOTING WHEN THINGS GO WRONG. SOMEONE TO HELP EXPLAIN NEW TECHNOLOGIES THAT ARE CONSTANTLY EVOLVING
AND HOW THEY CAN BEST BE USED.

A LEARNING PLATFORM THAT DID NOT HAVE OUTAGES.
A USER-FRIENDLY HELP GUIDE FOR BLACKBOARD WOULD MAKE TRYING NEW TOOLS MUCH EASIER THAN AT PRESENT. THE GUIDE
APPEARS TO BE WRITTEN FOR THOSE WHO ALREADY KNOW HOW TO USE THEM. NEEDS TO BE IN PLAIN ENGLISH OR AT LEAST THE
TERMS DEFINED CLEARLY.
ACTUALLY IT IS BEST PROVIDED ONSITE AND IN PERSON I HAVE FOUND. ACCESSING MORE ONLINE LEARNING IN THE FORM OF
MANUALS ETC IS TIRESOME AND TIME-CONSUMING. I'D RATHER HAVE SOMEONE ACTIVELY SHOW ME ON A ONE-TO-ONE.

ASSISTANCE WITH NEW TECHNOLOGY & ITS APPLICABILITY TO MY ROLE
AVAILABILITY OF EFFICIENT INFRASTRUCTURE TIME ALLOCATION FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF SUCH RESOURCES RATHER THAN IN
ADDITION TO CURRENT WORK COMMITMENTS RECOGNITION THAT ONLINE IS A USEFUL, EFFECTIVE SUPPORT TO THE LEARNING
ENVIRONMENT, AND PROVISION OF RECIPROCAL SUPPORT FOR SUCH
BANDWIDTH MUST BE SOLVED IN AUSTRALIA. MENTORS FOR GUIDING THE WAY.

HOW TO DIRECT MY FOCUS
I AM CURRENTLY UNDERTAKING AN E LEARNING COURSE WHICH I THINK WILL BE VALUABLE. THE SUPPORT PROVIDED IN THIS
COURSE IS VERY GOOD.
I AM NOT SURE AS I FEEL REASONABLY CONFIDENT WITH WHAT I AM DOING AT THE MOMENT.
I PARTICIAPTE IN WEBINARS & VIDEOLINQS TO UPDATES MY ICT SKILLS
IF I PROVIDED THE CONTENT, TASKS OR PROJECTS, TO HAVE SOME SET THIS UP IN AN ON-LINE ENVIRONMENT FOR ME.
IF WE START WITH A GOOD INFRASTRUCTURE (EQUIPMENT, BANDWIDTH ...)THEN TRAINING IN THE NEW TECHNOLOGIES - BUT MOST
ORGANISATIONS DON'T HAVE THE HARDWARE AND SOFTWARE BASE TO THINK OF THE NEXT LEVEL.
I'M HAPPY WITH CURRENT SUPPORT - IN A KNOWLEDGE ECONOMY I AM VERY SELF-DIRECTED WITH THIS
IMPROVED TECHNOLOGY PROVIDED TO USERS, PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT IN USE OF TECHNOLOGIES.

LEARNING HOW (AND UNDERSTANDING THE RESEARCH BEHIND) PROVEN SUCCESSFUL WAS OF COMMUNICATION TO STUDENTS
WITH AN ONLINE MEDIUM. BLOGS, PODCASTS ETC HOW EFFECTIVE ARE THEY REALLY? OFTEN STUDENTS IN REGIONAL AND RURAL
AREAS WITH SLOW DAIL UP OR UNABLE TO GET BROADBAND ARE LEFT IN THE DARK WITH THIS TECHNOLOGY. MANY STUDENTS
STILL PREFER TO HAVE TEACHERS IN THE CLASSROOM RATHER THAN THE ONLINE ENVIRONMENT.
LIBRARY STAFF

LOTS OF MONEY TO BUY LOTS OF TIME

MORE ACCESS
MORE HELP/TRAINING IN USING THESE TOOLS EFFECTIVELY. AS LITTLE TIME WASTING AS POSSIBLE.
MORE INTUITIVE INTERFACES
MORE OVERALL RESOURCES.
MORE PD FOR ME - THE TEACHER OF THE OTHER TEACHERS. I AM TEACHING TEACHERS HOW TO MAXIMISE THEIR USE OF THE E-
TOOLS, BUT HAVE HAD LIMITED TRAINING MYSELF WITH SO MUCH SELF-TAUGHT OR WORKED OUT THROUGH DISCUSSION AND
TESTING WITH OTHERS IN MY TEAM. MY TEACHING IN E-LEARNING COULD HAVE BEEN FAR BETTER SUPPORTED WITH "JUST IN TIME"
TRAINING, ACCESS TO LEARNING MATERIALS, SUPPLIER MANUALS ETC LONG BEFORE NOW, RATHER THAN A SET STRUCTURED
PROGRAM THAT IS STILL BEING DEVELOPED AND ROLLED OUT.
MORE PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT ON LEARNING MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS




                                     education.au 2008                                             Page 125 of 160
MORE RESOURCES ON RESOURCEBANK
MORE SHORT PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT WORKSHOPS WITH DEVELOPERS OF ONLINE SERVICES AND TOOLS. NOT JUST A HARD
SELL OF THE PRODUCT BUT A REAL HANDS ON, SEE AND FEEL THE BENEFITS RATHER THAN JUST BEING TOLD HOW GREAT A TOOL
OR PRODUCT THAT IT IS.
MORE TECHNICAL ASSISTANCE FOR ADVANCED USERS, IT IS EASY TO GET BASIC ASSISTANCE, BUT OFTEN, WE BECOME MORE
EXPERT THAN THE EXPERTS, AND APPART FROM COLLEGIAL DISCUSSIONS, IT IS NOT ALWAYS EASY TO GET A QUICK ANSWER.
MORE TIME TO DEVELOP THESE TOOLS, AS WELL AS MORE SHARING OF IDEAS WITH FELLOW DEVELOPERS.
MORE TRAINING AND INFORMATION AND TO SEE HOW OTHERS USE A WIDE RANGE OF TEACHING AND LEARNING TOOLS
MORE TRAINING AT THE ORGANISATION
MORE WORKSHOPS OFFERED THROUGHOUT THE YEAR
MORE WORKSHOPS OR TEACHING SESSIONS IN IT SKILLS, AND THE TIME OFF TO DO THEM AND PRACTICE THEM.
MUCH IS ALREADY AVAILABLE - NETWORK FORUMS, COMMUNITIES OF PRACTICE, LOCAL ICT / EDUCATIONAL SUPPORT
MY TYPING SKILLS ARE POOR AND THE ABILITY TO PRODUCE QUALITY RESOURCES IS LIMITED. APPROPRIATE QUALITY STAFF TO
PRODUCE RESOURCES IN A DAY WHAT TAKES ME A WEEK. THEY EMPLOYED ME FOR MY EXCELLENT WELDING SKILLS NOT TO TYPE.
THEY DON'T HAVE CLERICAL/ ADMINISTRATION SUPPORT STAFF WELDING WHY EXPECT ME TO TYPE.

TRAINING IN PROBLEM AREAS WOULD BE HELPFUL
PERHAPS TRAINING AS THE TECHNOLOGIES EMERGE INSTEAD OF LEAVING IT TO THE INNOVATORS TO GAIN EXPERIENCE IN USING
THE SYSTEMS, AND THEN TRAIN OTHERS. THE TIME BETWEEN THOSE TWO FUNCTIONS CAN SOMETIMES SPAN YEARS. FOR
EXAMPLE, BLOGS HAVE BEEN AROUND FOR YEARS, AND IT SEEMS ONLY NOW THAT THEY ARE GAINING CURRENCY WITH TEACHING
STAFF.

TAKEN OFF CLASSES IN ORDER TO DO SOME TRAINING
TECHNICAL ADVICE & ASSISTANCE
TECHNICAL SUPPORT FOR USING BLACKBOARD
TECHNICAL SUPPORT IS IMPORTANT TO GIVE ONE THE CONFIDENCE TO UTILISE ONLINE SERVICES
TECHNICAL SUPPORT OF THE EQUIPMENT AVAILABLE AND UPGRADE ON SITE AT EDUCATION QUEENSLAND
TECHNICIANS THAT CAN WORK WITH A TEACHER TO ASSIST IN THE ACTUAL BUILDING OF THE TOOLS-TIME AND A SUITABLE
ENVIRONMENT TO WORK IN.
THE AVAILABILITY OF IN-HOUSE EXPERTS WHO CAN GUIDE OTHERS IN DEVELOPING SKILLS RATHER THAN CONTROLLING ACCESS &
KEEPING THE SKILLS FROM OTHERS.
THE BEST ONLINE SERVICE AND OFTEN THE HARDEST TO FIND IS A EMAIL LINK IN CUSTOMER SUPPPORT CENTRES. I OFFER A
DECENT CUSTOMER SUPPORT TO MY CUSTOMERS, THEY CAN FIND MY EMAIL OK. BUT FOR ALOT OF COMPANIES, EVEN MULTI
NATIONAL ONES, THERE IS NO SUCH LINK. WHERE ORAL COMMUNICATION BREAKS DOWN, TYPED COMMUNICATION IS OFTEN THE
ANSWER. I DONT WANT TO TALK TO SOMEONE IN A FORIREIGN COUNTRY THAT SPEAKS A DIFFERENT LANGUAGE, AND I KNOW THEY
DON'T WANT TO SPEAK TO ME. BUT THROUGH EMAIL.... NO MORE SPACE
THE GREATEST SUPPORT I COULD RECEIVE WOULD BE THE REMOVAL OF THE MANY LAYERS OF GATEKEEPERS AND AUTOCRATS
FROM THE PROCESS OF TEACHING AND LEARNING. THEY HOLD US BACK AND ENSURE ANY NEW INNOVATIONS ARE MONTHS OR
YEARS OLD BEFORE WE CAN PUSH THEM TO THE FOREFRONT.
THE INTERACTION WITH OTHER CAMPUSES WHEN REQUIRED

SUPPORT CLOSE AT HAND WHEN DIFFICULTIES ARISE.
ACCESS TO EVERYTHING THAT THE INTERNET OFFERS WITHOUT 'BIG BROTHER' ASSUMING THAT I AM BEING DISHONEST OR

TYPE OF TOURISM OR TRAVEL SITES WE ARE BOOKING A PERSONAL HOLIDAY!!!

ANY SUPPORT ESPECIALLY MANAGEMENT SEEING THE NEED TO SUPPORT IT AND PROVIDING THE TIME TO SUPPORT IT. USER
GROUPS. ONLINE TRAINING.
ANYTHING
ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING THAT WOULD MAKE MY LIFE EASIER FROM AN ADMIN POINT OF VIEW.
AS MENTIONED EARLIER, RECOGNITION BY EMPLOYER AND MANAGERS THAT SETTING UP NEW ENVIRONMNETS AND APPROACHES
TAKES TIME. A RECOGNITION OF THE LONG TERM BENEFIT AGANINST THE SHORT TERM COST.
AS SPECIFIED PREVIOUSLY.
AT THE MOMENT I HAVE ALL THE SUPPORT I NEED.
AUTOMATIC UNBLOCKING OF USEFUL SITES LIKE THE ABC; LESS PARANOID MONITORING OF STUDENT ACCESS ETC (BUT MY
STUDENTS ALWAYS HAVE A TEACHER WITH THEM WHEN USING COLLEGE COMPUTERS); ACCESS TO SELF-PACED HELP IN
UPGRADING MY EXPERTISE EG IN POWER POINT PRESENTATIONS AND SUCH
BEHIND SCENES THINGS AS MENTIONED BEFORE. NOT CONVINCED ABOUT ON-LINE LEARNING AND ASSESSMENT. SEEN TOO MANY
FAILURES IN THIS AREA AND TOO MANY WHICH CANNOT VALIDATE WHO ACTUALLY TOOK THE ASSESSMENT!
BEING ABLE TO ACCESS ALL SITES WITHOUT BEING BLOCKED ALL THE TIME   ..   WE ARE EDUCATORS AND HAVE GOOD INTERNET
ETHICS
BEING ABLE TO ACCESS SOMEONE EASILY WITHOUT HAVING TO FIRST FIND FORMS THEN FILLING OUT INFORMATION WHICH IS OFTEN
NOT RELEVANT, THEN HAVING TO WAIT FOR RESPONSE. EMAILING OR PHONING IS SO MUCH MORE USER FRIENDLY AND QUICKER
THAN HAVING TO LOCATE FORMS! TO HAVE REGULARLY RUN SESSIONS IN UPGRADING SKILLS SO THAT I COULD SLOT INTO ONE OF
THESE AROUND MY WORK
BEST WAYS TT UTILISE THE TECHNOLOGY
BETTER FACILITIES, INCLUDING HARDWARE.
BETTER PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT AND INFRASTRUCTURE AS WELL AS MANAGEMENT THAT TRULY UNDERSTAND THESE NEW
TECHNOLOGIES -MANY ARE DINOSAURS WITH LITTLE OR NO UNDERSTANDING AND THEY USE ON-LINE TO GIVE YOU MORE HOURS
AND WORK AND DON'T OFTEN COUNT THOSE HOURS EQUALLY OR WITH ANY DEFINATE CALCULATION
BETTER UNDERSTANDING OF VARIOS NEW TECHNOLOGIES
BRIEF PRACTICAL INTRODUCTION TO NEW TECHNOLOGIES INDEPTH SUPPORT IF STARTING TO USE NEW TOOLS (MENTORS,
SUPPORT GROUPS)
COACH OR MENTOR FACILITATED WORKSHOPS AT TIMES WHEN I CAN ACCESS
COMMUNICATION IN EMAIL FORM AS TO WHAT HAS BEEN CHANGED ON PERSONAL COMPUTERS - ADDITIONS AND DELETIONS
BECAUSE EVERY FIDDLE ON COMPUTERS CAUSES DELAYS AND FRUSTRATIONS. INCREASE EMAIL SPACE SO LECTURERS CAN
RESPOND TO EMAILS WITHOUT SPENDING AN HOUR DELETING EXCESSIVE BROADCASTING OF INTERNAL JUNK MAIL. STOP EXTERNAL
JUNK MAIL.
CONSULTATION WITH SPECIALITS IN E LEARNING, TO DISCUSS WHAT AND HOW THE TOOLS AVAILABLE CAN BE USED. WHICH WOULD
BEST SUIT YOUR NEEDS AND THEN TO GET TRAINING IN THIS AREA WITH ON GOING SUPPORT .TRAIN THE TRAINER
CONTINUOUS TRAINING IN ANY ONLINE SERVICE
DATA PROJECTOR
DECENT IT SERVICES
DEVELOPMENT OF ONLINE LEARNING TOOLS AS AN ADJUNCT TO TEACHING TRAINING IN A NUMBER OF SPECIFIC SOFTWARE
PACKAGES. UP DATE TRAINING FOR COMMON APPLICATIONS
DEVELOPMENT OF ONLINE RESOURCES,
DEVELOPMENT SUPPORT
DO NOT REQUIRE ANY SUPPORT
DON'T KNOW
DON'T KNOW AND I DON'T LIKE USING THOSE TOOLS BECAUSE THEY ARE SO TIME CONSUMING AND IRRELEVANT TO MY TEACHING. I
CAN WRITE A WORD DOCUMENT OR AN EMAIL AND SEND IT MUCH QUICKER THAN TO USE SOME FANCY TOOLS THAT COMES WITH
WHISTLES AND BELLS
DON'T KNOW.
DON'T NEED A LOT OF PROFESSIONAL SUPPORT ON A DAY TO DAY BASIS BUT FOR NEW TECHNOLOGY NEED ACCESS TO TIMELY
TRAINING, NEED A SYSTEM THAT WORKS SMOOTHLY AND QUICKLY, A REPOSITORY OF WHAT IS BEING USED, EXPLANATIONS AND
EXAMPLES, RESOURCE LINKS TO MATERIALS AND EXPLANATIONS RELEVANT TO THE TECHNOLOGIES BEING USED IN THE INSTITUTE.

HAVING A RESPONSIVE 'YES' ATTITUDE FROM ICT SUPPORT STAFF ( HELP DESK) RATHER THAN THE TEDIOUS NO ATTITUDE WE
PRESENTLY EXPERIENCE. ALSO NEED THE SUPPORT OF EXECUTIVE TO 'KICK ARSE' WHEN NEEDED - A TWO WAY STREET -
SOMETIMES EDUCATORS REQUESTS TO ICT STAFF MAY BE MORE THAN SHOUDL BE EXPECTED - SO MAYBE WE NEED AN

I AM CURRENTLY DOING A SHORT COURSE IN "FACILITATING ONLINE", AS PART OF MY PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT I INTEND TO
PURSUE MORE STUDY IN THIS FIELD
I AM WELL SUPPORTED BUT IT CAN BE FRUSTRATING DEALING WITH THE ISSUSE THAT ARRISE.
I DO NOT KNOW
I DON'T KNOW
I DONT TEACH SO I DONT KNOW
I GET THE MOST OUT OF ONLINE CONFERENCES AND SEEING EXAMPLES OF WHAT OTHER PEOPLE ARE DOING IN THE WAY OF E-
LEARNING.
I HAVE COMPLETED A NUMBER OF E LEARNING SUBJECTS AND WRITTEN ONE OF MY SUBJECTS FOR ONLINE DELIVERY AND RECEIVED
EXCELLENT SUPPORT FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF EDUCATIONAL MATERIALS AT THAT TIME. AT THE MOMENT I RELY ON MY WEB
RESEARCH TO PROVIDE STUDENTS WITH CONTEMPORARY, INDUSTRY BASED ACTIVITIES AND ASSESSMENT.

I HAVE FOUND THE TECHNICAL SUPPORT AND SKILLS OF ESP STAFF VALUABLE IN HELPING ME PRODUCE TOOLS THAT I WOULD NOT
HAVE THE TECHNICAL SKILLS TO DO ALONE
I KNOW I WOULD NOT HAVE THE TIME OR THE EXPERTISE TO DEVELOP ON LINE LEARNING MATERIALS. FOR USING EXISTING ON LINE
RESOURCES IT MAY BE NECESSARY TO PROVIDE SEMINARS ETC. SHOWING HOW THESE RESOURCES ARE USED TO THEIR BEST
ADVANTAGE OR AT LEAST PROVIDE INSTRUCTIONS REGARDING THE USE OF THE RESOURCES.
I LIKE SEEING WHAT OTHER PEOPLE ARE DOING - THERE IS STILL NOT ENOUGH COLLABORATION WITHIN TAFESA.
I NEED MORE TIME!
I PROVIDE THAT SUPPORT. ;-)
I WOULD LIKE A TUTOR (A PERSON, NOT WRITTEN INSTRUCTION) FOR 10 MINUTES A WEEK, TO SHOW ME ONE SIMPLE THING I DON'T
KNOW
I WOULD LIKE INFORMATION AND ASSISTANCE WITH EMERGING TECHNOLOGIES. I FEEL COMFORTABLE WITH THOSE I USE BUT FIND
IT DIFFICULT TO BECOME AWARE OF EMERGING TECHNOLOGIES AND HOW THEY CAN BE USED IN MY TEACHING.
I WOULD LIKE TO HAVE PD IN POD ZONE AND CENTRA, AS WE MAY BE ABLE TO MAKE USE OF CENTRA IN OUR DISTANCE LEARNING
PROGRAM AND POD ZONE IN THE FUTURE IN FACE TO FACE PROGRAMS. IF THIS IS THE WAY WE WANT TO PROCEED, I WOULD LIKE
TO UNDERSTAND HOW THESE TOOLS WORK. THE PROFESSIONAL SUPPORT I WOULD LIKE IN THE USE OF ONLINE SERVICES RELATES
MORE TO ACCESS TO HELP FOR STAFF WHEN THERE IS A PROBLEM. CURRENTLY THERE IS A LENGTHY WAITING PERIOD AND THIS
CREATES A BARRIER FOR STAFF.
ICT HELP DESK. TRAINING OPPORTUNITIES.
ICT HELPDESK ARE COURTEOUS AND HELPFUL 95% OF THE TIME AND OFTEN HAVE TO DEAL WITH A USER-UNFRIENDLY AND
ANTIQUATED NETWORK THEMSELVES, AS WELL AS HELP CUSTOMERS. WHAT WE ALL NEED INSTEAD OF 'BANDAID' SUPPORT IS A
BETTER, FASTER NETWORK THAT IS RELIABLE.
ICT HELPDESK SERVICES THAT COMMUNICATE AND SOLVE PROBLEMS
IMPROVED UNDERSTANDING OF THE OPTIONS AVAILABLE
IN HOUES SUPPORT
IN HOUSE TRAINING AND SUPPORT SERVICES ARE IMPERATIVE FOR ONGOING USE AND OR PARTICIPATION.
IN HOUSE TRAINING IS ALREADY AVAILABLE BUT THE TIME FACTOR IS A SERIOUS PROBLEM
INCREASE HELP DESK PERSONNEL AVAILABILITY AND TIME ALLOCATION PER STAFF MEMBER.
INFORMATION ABOUT WHAT IS AVAILABLE AND HOW TO ACCESS THESE TOOLS EASILY. TIME IS AN IMPORTANT FACTOR (OR RATHER
LACK OF TIME TO LEARN TO USE NEW TOOLS).L
INFORMATION ON EMERGING ITC TECHNOLOGIES, THEIR USES & APPLICATIONS. MORE IMPORTANTLY TEH TIME MADE AVAILABLE TO
UPDATE THE ITC SKILLS - OFTEN JUST KEEPING UP-TO-DATE WITH OUR SUBJECT SPECIFIC AREAS CONSUMES OUR TIME.
INFORMATION ON HOW TO FORMAT AND EDIT INFORMATION INTO USER FRIENDLY FORMAT
INSTEAD OF BLOCKING EVERYTHING...ENCOURAGE TEACHERS TO ACCESS INTERNET SITES IN A RESPONSIBLE WAY...DO SOME
ETHICS TRAINING...THEN UNBLOCK STUFF SO WE CAN ACCESS IT...EVEN IF UNDER CONSTRAINED CONDITIONS...E.G. FOR A PERIOD
OF TIME IN A LECTURE, IT WOULD BE GREAT TO GO ONLINE IN REAL TIME AND ACCESS E.G. VIDEOS FROM YOU TUBE (NOT
EVERYTHING ON YOU TUBE IS BAD).
INSTRUCTION ON DEVELOPING ONLINE TEACHING AND LEARNING RESOURCES
INTERNAL PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT RELATING TO MY AREA OF TEACHING / LEARNING
INTERNET ACCESS THAT WAS RELIABLE
INTOR TO CENTRA, MOODLE
INTRODUCING ON LINE LEARNING ANS SUPPORT
IT ACCESS TO THOSE TOOLS!
IT SHOULD BE EASY TO FOLLOW
IT SUPPORT THAT IS LOCAL AND ACCESSABLE, NOT A SHARED SERVICE WHERE YOU LOG A JOB AND HOPE FOR THE BEST! ALSO
THAT STAFF ARE NOT SUBJECT TO SOFTWARE THAT BLOCKS ACCESS TO CERTAIN INTERNET SITES AS THEY ARE TOO BROAD AND AS
SOON AS YOU TRY AND SEARCH FOR INFO IN AREAS SUCH AS HEALTH (EG SEXUAL HEALTH) OR THE LIKE STAFF ARE BLOCKED.
MAKES RESEARCH SLOW AND DIFFICULT. E.G. ALL THE WAY THROUGH THIS I KEEP HAVING TO DEAL WITH A CONTENT FILTER AND
WORK HAS ASKED ME TO DO THIS SURVEY!!
JUS TIME AND MONEY TO DO IT AND SOMEONE TO TEACH ME HOW.
JUST IN TIME SUPPORT, DIFFICULT TO IDENTIFY A SPECIFIC PRIORITY UNTIL A SITUATION ARISES.
LAPTOP TO EVERY TEACHER WITH INTERNET ACCESS AT THE WORKPLACE.

LECTURERS AND SUBJECT SPECIALISTS NEED TO BE ALLOCATED MORE TIME TO DEVELOP E-LEARNING MATERIALS
LESS FIREWALLS. LESS BLOCKED SITES.
LIKE THE OPTION OF SMALL GROUP EXPERIENCES - IN-HOUSE STAFF DEVELOPMENT - ALWAYS EASIER TO WORK WITH A COUPLE OF
OTHERS RATHER THAN TRY AND FORGE AHEAD ON YOUR OWN. LIKE STAFF INTRANET HAVING HELP TIPS AND DOWNLOADABLE

EXCEEDS STANDARD REQUIREMENTS SO AS TO BE ABLE TO DEVELOP AND EXPERIENCE WHAT I CAN AT HOME.
NO THOUGHTS
NON - BROWSER SPECIFIC REOURCES I.E. NOT DEPENDANT ON MICROSOFT INTERNET EXPLORER, ABLE TO BE ACCESSED BY OPEN
SOURCE TECHNOLOGIES I.E. FIREFOX. ALSO IN ANY FORMAT, I.E. A USER SHOULD BE ABLE TO CHOOSE WHETHER OR NOT THE

PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT FOR PARTICULAR E-LEARNING, AND PROGRAMS SUCH AS LEARNSCOPE AND REFRAMING THE
FUTURE.
PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT OFFERED BY THE LEARNSCOPE PROGRAM IN THE PAST HAS BEEN INVALUABLE. THIS TYPE OF
SUPPORT IS EXCELLENT
PROMPT RELIABLE ICT SUPPORT
QUIZ, SELF-CHECK
READILY ACCESSIBLE ON LINE TRAINING AND SUPPORT IN THE USE OF SOFTWARE AND EQUIPMENT. HIGHLY DEVELOPED HELP
MENUS TO BE ABLE TO LEARN WHAT I NEED AS I NEED IT.
REGULAR PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT
REGULAR TRAINING ON EMERGENT TECHNOLOGIES, EG. MOODLE/YOU TUBE
RELEVANT AND WORK PLACE BASED. IT HAS TO BE RELEVANT TO THE PROGRAM AREAS LONG TERM GOALS
REMOVAL OF BLANKET FILTERING. GIVE STAFF THE ABILITY TO MAKE THE RESOURCES THEY USE AVAILABLE TO STUDENTS.

REQUIRED.
SET UP WEBSITES MOODLES PODCASTS
SMALL GROUP SUPPORT WITHIN THE WORKPLACE TO DEVELOP RESOURCES. A CONTACT FOR TROUBLESHOOTING.
SMARTMEDIA PERSONNEL IT WORKSHOPS SUPPORTIVE IT STAFF
SOCIAL AND COMMUNITY BUILDING WITHIN THE ONLINE EDUCATION FRAMEWORK. SEAMLESS COMMUNICATION TOOL THAT ALLOWS
FOR LEARNING MATERIALS, REFERENCES, DISCUSSION, COMMENT, FEEDBACK AND ASSESSMENT INFORMATION TO BE PROVIDED TO
STUDENTS VIA ONE ONLINE TOOL THAT IS SEAMLESS, REALIABLE AND EDUCATIONALLY SOUND.
SOLUTIONS TO ICT ISSUES
SOME FACE TO FACE TRAINING, WITH FOLLOW UP SUPPORT AVAILABLE
SOME SORT OF HELP LINE SO YOU CAN RING OR EMAIL QUERIES ON HOW TO DO SOMETHING.
SOME TIME TO ATTEND PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT SESSIONS
SOMEONE CLOSE AT HAND TO PROVIDE A QUICK RESPONSE
SOMEONE ON SITE AND EASILY ACCESSABLE TO ASSIST AS NEEDED AND ALSO LEAD SOME NEW LEARNING AND SKILLS
DEVELOPMENT
SOMEONE TO SIT WITH ME FRO HALF A DAY. HAVE SEEN OTHERS DO IT - BUT IT IS STILL TOO BIG A LEAP TO DO IT BY MYSELF
STAFF DEVELOPMENT OPPORTUNITIES.
SUPER BROADBAND LINKING PRODUCTION PERSONNEL ACROSS TAFE AND OTHER PRODUCTION GROUPS TO PROVIDE ABILITY TO
USEFULLY COLLABORATE IN REAL TIME ON ALL ASPECTS OF AUDIO AND VIDEO PRODUCTION THROUGH SHARING OF RESOURCES. A/
REALTIME REMOTE COLLABORATION ON EDITING OF PROJECTS WITH PROFESSIONAL SOFTWARE. B/ ONLINE REVIEW AND
APPROVALS OF STAGES OF VIDEO PRODUCTION. C/ ACCESS TO CENTRAL SERVER WHICH STORES ALL RAW VIDEO FOOTAGE AND
ASSETS SO VARIOUS TECHNICIANS CAN WORK JOINTLY ON THE SAME ASSET.
SUPPORT FROM PEOPLE WHO UNDERSTAND THE NEEDS OF OUR SUBJECT AREA AND HAVE AN UNDERSTANDING OF THE RESOURCES
AVAILABLE. AT THE MOMENT, WE ARE LEARNING FROM EACH OTHER BECAUSE A LOT OF THE INTERNAL PD IS GEARED TOWARDS
PROGRAMS WITH QUITE DIFFERENT NEEDS AND STUDENT COHORTS. SUBJECT SPECIALISTS WHO HAVE STRONG TECHNICAL
KNOWLEDGE WOULD BE A GREAT ADVANTAGE AS SUPPORT PERSONNEL. THE OTHER AREA IS IN RESOURCING, SO THOSE
RESPONSIBLE FOR PURCHASING LIBRARY RESOURCES ARE ALSO IMPORTANT AND USEFUL.
SUPPORT FROM THE HELP DESK IS USUALLY FORTHCOMING BUT THE SYSTEM IS UNRELIABLE
SUPPORT IN ACCESSING RESOURCES WITHOUT BEING BLOCKED FROM SITES
SUPPORT THAT WORKS
TAFE PROVIDES TRAINING IN A RANGE OF THESE
TECHNICAL SUPPORT, GREATER RELIABILITY, CONSULTATION ON WHAT SITES TO BLOCK/UNBLOCK




                                       education.au 2008                                                 Page 134 of 160
THE DEPARTMENTAL FINANCIAL SUPPORT IN OBTAINING SYSTEMS THAT CAN DO WHAT IS NEEDED AND THEN ENSURING EASY AND
AVALIABLE ICT SUPPORT WHEN NEEDED
TIME - TIME TO PLAY AND EXPERIMENT TIME TO WORK WITH STAFF TO IMPROVE THEIR ICT CAPABILITIES
TIME !!!!
TIME ALLOCATION, PD
TIME FOR PD
TIME OFF TO LEARN NEW STUFF - SAY A TERM TO BUILD UP RESOURCES AND STAFF DEVELOPMENT
TIME RELEASE TO WORK COLLABORATIVELY WITH COLLEAGUES TO EXPLORE AND LEARN.
TIME TO BE ABLE TO ESTABLISH CLEAR OUCOMES AND RESOURCE THE RELEVANT MATERIALS.
TIME TO BE TRAINED.
TIME TO DEVELOP ON LINE COURSES. MANAGERS WILL NOT FUND CLASS COVER SO WE CAN DEVELOP ON LINE COURSES AND
SKILLS.
TIME TO DO IT! BUDGETS MUST ALLOW FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF RESOURCES. MY EXPERIENCE IS THAT ABOVE AVERAGE
RESOURCES ONLY GET DEVELOPED IF PEOPLE ARE WILLING TO DO IT IN THEIR OWN TIME (OFTEN ON THEIR OWN PC AND INTERNET
CONNECTION)
TIME TO DO PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT ONLY ADMIN CAN WALK AWAY FROM DUTIES, TEACHING COMMITMENTS AND LACK OF
RELIEF LECTURERS MAKE ATTENDING COURSES IMPOSSIBLE WITHOUT DOING IT IN OWN TIME (ALREADY WORK MANY HOURS MORE
THAN GETTING PAID FOR / AT HALF THE RATE EARN IN TRADE)
TIME, TIME, TIME (IE: FUNDS ALLOCATED WHICH WILL ALLOW US TO GO OFF LINE AND DEVELOP STUFF     - THE ONLINE MATERIALS
TAKE A TREMENDOUS AMOUNT OF TIME TO DEVELOP IF YOU WANT TO DO A REASONABLE JOB).
TO KEEP UP WITH THINGS LIKE FACEBOOK, MSN ETC, AS OUR STUDENTS SEEM TO RELY ON COMMUNICATION CHANNELS LIKE THESE
ALL THE TIME.
TO LEARN JANISON ETC
TRAINIGN AND TECHNICAL SUPPORT
TRAINING
TRAINING AND SUPPORT
TRAINING AND UPDATING KNOWLEDGE AS PART OF YOUR POSITION, EMPLOYER SHOULD COVER THIS
TRAINING IN 2ND LIFE
TRAINING IN A REAL LIFE SITUATION - HANDS ON WITH REAL STUDENTS ETC SUPPORT FROM MANAGER TO BECOME MORE
COMPUTER LITERATE THROUGH TRAINING AS PART OF TEACHING LOAD NOT ON TOP OF IT AS IT BECOMES TOO STRESSFULAND
TIRING
TRAINING IN DEVELOPING SPECIFIC TOOLS
TRAINING IN THE USE OF
TRAINING TO BEST UTILISE THESE SERVICES & MORE COMPUTERS/COMPUTER SUITES FOR STUDENTS. AT THE INSTITUTION THAT I
WORK FOR WE HAVE 2 COMPUTER SUITES WHICH IS RIDICULOUS FOR THE AMOUNT OF STUDENTS HERE. WE ARE EXPECTED TO
MORE WORK WITH STUDENTS ON COMPUTERS, YET WE STRUGGLE TO GAIN ACCESS TO THEM.
TUTORIALS ON HOW TO USE SOME OF THE PROGRAMS E.G. TUTORIAL ON MOODLE ON LOGIN PAGE
UNBLOCKED TCP/UDP PORTS FOR UP TO 1024 UNBLOCKED WEBSITES
UNSURE
UPDATED INFORMATION. OPPORTUNITIES TO BE SHOWN VARIOUS APPLICATIONS.
USING SOUND AND INTERNET - PODCASTS ETC AWARENESS OF NEW POSSIBLE USES
VARIOUS INTERNAL / EXTERNAL NETWORKS.
WE NEED AN ONLINE RESOURCE THAT HAS NON-COPYRIGHTED MATERIALS - ORDERED BY SUBJECT AND AGE GROUP EG MATHS OR
GEOGRAPHY LESSONS FOR ELECTRONIC WHITEBOARDS MS OFFICE 2007 NOTES/LEARNING EXERCISES I HAVE BEEN INVOLVED WITH
PROJECTS WHERE WE WANTED TO USE 3D AVATARS, ICLONE, VOKI ETC BUT OFTEN MY COLLEAGUES & I HAVE TO LEARN &
IMPLEMENT AS AN EXTRA TO OUR NORMAL WORK - & WE ARE WORKING SO MUCH HARDER THAT 20 YEARS AGO. A COMMUNITY OF
LEARNING IS VERY IMPORTANT.
WEBSITE CREATION
WHAT SUPPORT? YOU HAVE TO TRAWL THROUGH THE NET TO FIND WHAT YOU REQUIRE.
WHATEVER IS APPROPRIATE AND AVAILABLE AT THAT TIME




                                        education.au 2008                                             Page 135 of 160
WHILE I AM A KEEN ADOPTER OF NEW TECHNOLOGIES I FIND THAT MANY OF THE PEOPLE I COMMUNICATE WITH DO NOT ALWAYS
UNDERSTAND PRIVACY ISSUES THAT MAY BE APPLICABLE TO NEW TECHNOLOGIES (THEIR OWN AND OTHERS) AND HOW TO USE THE
TOOL EFFICIENTLY/EFFECTIVELY - AND THE CONTINUED USE OF JARGON BY THE INDUSTRY CAN BE CONFRONTING TO THOSE
NEEDING TO USE TECHNOLOGIES - PEOPLE I'VE SPOKEN TO SEEM TO FIND PROFESSIONAL FORUMS/PRESENTATIONS OF USE
(PRACTICAL DEMOS AND DISCUSSION). *SHRUGS*.
WIRELESS
WORKSHOPS
WORKSHOPS - PROGRESSIVE FROM INTRO TO MORE ADVANCED AND STAGED TO ALLOW FOR GRADUAL USE AND LEARNING OF NEW
TOOLS. NOT A ONE DAY BANG AND BASH HERE IS THE INFO GO AND PRODUCE. NEEDS TO BE MEASURED AND OVER A RELEVANT
PERIOD OF TIME
WORKSHOPS AND TRAINING IN THE PRACTICAL USE OF TOOLS FOR TEACHING AND LEARNING WITH RELEVANT EXAMPLES AND
EXERCISES
WORKSHOPS ON SOFTWARE AT MORE REGULAR INTERVALS
WORKSHOPS ON TOOLS
WOULD REALLY LIKE A PROFICIENT MOODLE TEACHER TO COME ON CAMPUS AND GIVE US A HANDS-ON LESSON IN ITS USE FOR
EXTERNAL STUDENT INTERACTION



VIC
EDUCATIONAL TECHNOLOGY REQUIRES INFRASTRUCTURE FOR IT TO OPERATE. IT IS DIFFICULT FOR AN INTERESTED ACADEMIC TO
SET UP, SAY, A PODCASTING SERVICE FOR STUDENTS. THE INFRASTRUCTURE SHOULD BE PROVIDED AND SUPPORTED CENTRALLY
FOR ALL ESTABLISHED AND SOME EMERGING TECHNOLOGIES. ALL UNIVERSITIES SHOULD HAVE SUBJECT ACCESSIBLE BLOGS, WIKIS,
PODCASTS AND SOCIAL NETWORKING APPLICATIONS FOR USE IN THEIR TEACHING AND LEARNING.
GETTING ALL TEACHERS TO A MINIMUM BASIC LEVEL OF PROFICIENCY IN CERTAIN APPLICATIONS
HOW TO SET UP WEB 2.0 TECHNOLOGY AND USE IT AS A TEACHING AND LEARNING TOOL
IMPROVED ACCESS TO SUBSTANTIAL FUNDING FOR R&D IN THIS FIELD
JUST IN TIME ACCESS TO EVERYTHING SUPPORT
NEED IT STAFF ON HAND WHEN PROBLEMS ARISE IN INTERNET ACCESS. THIS DOES NOT HAPPEN FREQUENTLY BUT WHEN IT DOES, I
THINK PEOPLE NEED TO HAVE THE SYSTEM 'FIXED YESTERDAY' - THERE IS AN URGENCY ABOUT GETTING AND MAINTAINING ACCESS
TO THE INTERNET
NOT SURE
TIME TO EXPLORE NEW TOOLS



WA
$$$ FOR TECHNICAL SUPPORT OF EQUIPMENT AND TRAINING. $$$ FOR AVAILABILITY OF INTERNET CONNECTIONS IN ALL
CLASSROOMS. TIME TO EXPERIMENT MADE AVAILABLE IN BOTH THE COURSES AND PLANNING FOR CLASSES.
1. ICT PROBLEM SOLVING FOR DUMMIES 2. A QUICK SIMPLE USER-FRIENDLY FORMAT FOR PROBLEM SOLVING WHEN USING WORD,
EXCEL ETC INSTEAD OF HAVING TO BRING UP A MILLION SUB-MENUS. 3.MAYBE A SHARING FACILITY OF " LOOK- THIS WORKED FOR
ME " OR EVEN A "DO YOU KNOW YOU CAN DO THIS?" ESPECIALLY AT REPORT TIMES!
1.DEDICATED MAINTENANCE OF HARDWARE. 2.PROVISION OF STUDENT FOCUSED HARDWARE AND SOFTWARE AS STANDARD,
RATHER THAN HAVING TO SEARCH FOR IT, AND PAY HIGH PRICES FOR LIMITED PRODUCTION MATERIALS. 3.CONCEPT OF ICT AS A
TOOL TO AID STUDENT LEARNING, RATHER THAN AS A PROBLEM TO BE SOLVED 4.REMOVAL OF CONCEPT OF COMPUTER SKILL
AQUISITION, BY STUDENTS, AS PRE-VOCATIONAL TRAINING. SCHOOL USE SHOULD BE TO AID LEARNING, JUST AS WORK USE IS TO
AID WORK.
1:1 SELECTIVE UNITS... EG: S&E USING INTERNET
24 HOUR SUPPORT
A CONTINUOUS FEED OF NEW RESOURCES, ESPECIALLY TESTED ONES, COMING FROM A CENTRAL TEAM. THEY DON'T HAVE TO MAKE
THEM - JUST FIND AND TEST THEM.
A HELP DESK FOR QUESTIONS RELATING TO DET PROCEEDURES,
A PERSON WHO IS AVAILABLE , EITHER WITHIN THE EDUCATIONAL SETTING YOU ARE WORKING (THIS WOULD BE PREFERABLE) OR ON
THE TELEPHONE, WHENEVER YOU EXPERIENCE A PROBLEM.
A RECOMMENDED CONTINUUM FOR COMPUTER SKILLS TO BE INTODUCED TO PRIMARY STUDENTS




                                     education.au 2008                                             Page 136 of 160
A SYSTEM THAT ALLOWS YOU TO BE CONFIGURED INTO THE SYSTEM WITHOUT HAVING TO ASK THE REGISTRAR AT YOUR SCHOOL TO
SET YOU UP...THAT IS FLEXIBLE ENOUGH FOR YOU TO JUST LOG ON SCHOOL TO SCHOOL...ACCESS IS OFTEN DEPENDENT ON HOW
BUSY ADMIN STAFF ARE AND IT CAN BE INCREDIBLY FRUSTRATING FOR FIXED TERM TEACHERS TRYING TO GET ONLINE WHEN THEY
ARE CONSTANTLY BEING MOVED ON FROM SCHOOL TO SCHOOL...
A WHOLE HOST ..MANY ARE VIA INTRANET AND CENTRAL SERVICES PLUS PROFESSIONAL ASSOCIATIONS.
ACCESS TO CENTRA WHICH IS RATHER EXPENSIVE SOFTWARE FOR OUR SCHOOL TO FUND. RECOGNITION FROM DET THAT ONE
MODEL, ONE SIZE DOES NOT FIT ALL SCHOOLS. WITH DIFFICULTY IN FINDING RELIEF TEACHERS IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO LEAVE A CLASS
AND TAKE ADVANTAGE OF PD OPPORTUNITIES SO THIS IS MAINLY DONE IN MY OWN TIME AND I THINK I AM BURNING OUT.
ACCESS TO COMPUTERS THAT FUNCTION WELL
ACCESS TO DIFFERENT SELF PACED ONLINE COURSES THAT HAVE ASPECTS OF ONLINE MENTORING ATTACHED.
ACCESS TO PHONE SUPPORT
ACTUAL DESIGNS OR EXAMPLES TO ASSIST IN IMPLEMENTATION. SOME PD WHERE IT FOCUSES SPECIFICALLY ON SUBJECT AREA.
ADDITIONAL TIME TO PLAN WITH CELL SCHOOLS SHARING OF REOURCES DEVELOPED SHARING OF DIFFERENT STRATEGIES AND
TECHNIQUES EG THE USE OF 'VOICE' VIA THE INTERACTIVE WHITEBOARDS
AFFORDABLE TRAINING AND TIME!
AN EXPERT ON SITE .
AN ICT EXPERT SAT BESIDE ME!
ANY NEW TRAINING
ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING. EXAMPLES OF BEST PRACTICE FROM OTHER EDUCATORS..
AS A MEMBER OF THE SLICT PROJECT I THINK PEOPLE NETWORKS ARE TEH WAY TO GO. WE COULD ALSO DEVELOP A 'DELICIOUS'
TYPE LINKS PAGE SUITABLE FOR AUSTRALIAN TEACHERS WITH PRE LINKED PAGES.
BASIC INFORMATION OF FILING AND MANAGING ALL THE INFORMATION
BASIC SKILLS TRAINING IN THE CONTEXT OF TEACHING AND LEARNING
BEING KEPT UP TO DATE WITH SITES THAT MAY BE RELEVANT
BETTER INFRASTRUCTURE TEACHER ACCESS TO UNBLOCK SITES DURING A LESSON THAT THE KNOW ARE SAFE UP TO DATE
COMPUTERS
BOTH DEVELOPMENT OF TEACHERS' SKILLS IN USING THE TECHNOLOGY AND HOW TO USE THE TECHNOLOGY TO SUPPORT STUDENT
ACHIEVEMENT OF OUTCOMES
BULLETINS EMAILED TO HIGHLIGHT THE LATEST AND BEST SITES, INNOVATIONS.
CAN'T THINK OF ANY MORE
CENTRAL LOCATION OF LINKS TO THE MOST RELEVANT RESOURCES FOR TEACHERS AND STUDENTS. TIME TO NETWORK WITH
OTHER TEACHERS AND SHARE IDEAS.
CHEAPER TECHNICIAN SUPPORT TO KEEP THINGS ROLLING ACROSS THE SCHOOL. WE CAN ONLY AFFORD INTERMITTENT SUPPORT
AND OFTEN COMPUTERS/PRINTERS/ETC DON'T WORK FOR LONG PERIODS UNTIL THE TECHNICIAN COMES AT THE SCHEDULED TIME.
COLLABORATING WITH SOMEONE WHO'S DONE IT. ATTENDING "HOW TO" FORUMS/WORKSHOPS.
COMBINATION OF FACE TO FACE AND ONLINE SUPPORT
COMMON SITES FOR SPECIFIC SUBJECTS THAT ARE RECOMMENDED BY OTHER TEACHERS TO AVOID REINVENTING THE WHEEL.
SUPPORT FOR TERMINOLOGY AND REVISION ON HOW TO USE INTERNET IN LESSONS E.G. HOW TO PUT IN HYPERLINKS.
CONTINUED ACCESS TO A "HELPDESK" FOR ASSISTANCE OVER THE PHONE. A DEDICATED CIRCULAR OUTLINING EXCELLENT NEW
ON-LINE RESOURCES FOR TEACHERS AS THEY BECOME AVAILABLE.
CONTINUED PD IN USE OF PROGRAMS ETC AS REQUIRED - THIS WOULD REQUIRE A ICT SUPPORT PERSON IN EVERY SCHOOL.
DEFINITELY ICT TECH SUPPORT. WE HAVE THIS BY PHONE BUT STILL NEED TO GET A TECHNICIAN TO VISIT AND THIS IS VERY
EXPENSIVE FOR A SMALL SCHOOL. WE NEED TO BE ABLE TO ACCESS UP TO DATE KNOWLEDGE IN THE VARIOUS SOFTWARE
APPLICATIONS. IT IS SOMETIMES A TIME FACTOR WITH COMPETING TASKS TO SIT ONLINE AND GO THROUGH A TUTORIAL.
DIRECTED LEARNING
DON'T KNOW WHAT I DON'T KNOW, CURRENTLY EXPLORING AND LOVING EXCEL (YES I KNOW IT ISN'T STRICTLY ONLINE)
EARLY CHILDHOOD
EASY ACCESS TO DOWNLOADS.
EASY TO ACCESS SITES WITH AUSTRALIAN CONTENT. THER ARE MANY GOOD SITES BUT A LOT ARE AMERICAN CONTENT BASED AND
SO HAVE TO BE ADAPTED.
EDUCATION ONLINE LEARNING

EXPOSURE AND INFORMATION ON SYSTEM WIDE INITIATIVES THAT MAY BE ADAPTABLE FOR STUDENT OR STAFF ASSISTANCE AND
SUPPORT
EXTENSION OF THE RECENT EDNA 2008 WORKSHOP PROGRAM HELD IN PERTH.
FACE TO FACE
FINANCE FOR EVERY CLASS TO HAVE AN INTERACTIVE WHITEBOARD. AN IT EXPERT TO BE IN THE CLASSROOM FOR 1 DAY TO MODEL
HOW TO SET UP, AND USE THE BOARD.
FINDING OUT THE ANSWERS TO ANYTHING. COMMUNICATING WITH ‘ONLINE EXPERTS'
FREE BROADBAND FOR HOMEBASED COMPUTER USE - CONSIDERING I DO ALL OF MY INTERNET USAGE FOR WORK AT HOME.
FREE PD'S
GIVEN TIME AND MONEY BY EMPLOYER TO ATTEND PD SESSIONS; HAVE ICT MENTOR TEACHERS IN THE SCHOOL
GOOD QUESTION I THINK I WOULD FIND SOMETHING IN THE LINE OF GOOGLE A GREAT HELP TO STOP ME SEARCHING ALL OVER THE
PLACE FOR ANSWERS TO MY PROBLEMS/QUESTIONS
GOOD WEBSITES
GREATER COMPUTER ACCESS ACCROSS THE SCHOOL. PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMNET IN HOW TO SET UPON LINE LEARNING
COMMUNITEIS AND HOW TO CONDUCT WEBSEARCHES.
HANDS ON PD - COMPLETING PURPOSEFUL ACTIVITIES WITH FACE-TO-FACE SUPPORT
HANDS ON PD FOLLOWED BY READY ACCESS TO ONGOING SUPPORT VIA PHONE, ONLINE CHAT OR REMOTE ACCESS WHEN DEALING
WITH A NEW TOOL.
HANDS ON TYPE SUPPORT - DEMONSTARTION ETC.
HANDS ON WITH SOMEONE OR ELSE I DON'T HAVE TIME TO DO IT ONLINE.
HANDS ON WORK SHOPS SO YOU CAN ACTUALLY GO THROUGH THE PROCESS OF LEARNING WHILE SOMEONE IS AVAILABLE TO HELP
YOU WORK OUT YOUR PROBLEMS AS YOU COME ACROSS THEM.
HAVE HELP AVAILABLE WITHIN MY WORK ENVIRONMENT
HAVING ONE-ON-ONE, OR IN SMALL GROUPS, PD IN THE RELEVANT ONLINE MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS WHEN YOU NEED IT AND NOT
HAVE TO WORK THROUGH THE HELP MENUS BY YOURSELF. PD ON YOUR OWN IS VERY TIME CONSUMING AND VERY FRUSTRATING.
HAVING THE OPPORTUNITY TO KEEP INFORMED AND SKILLED ABOUT EMERGING AND NEW TECHNOLOGIES TO STAY UP TO DATE AND
RELEVANT WITH CURRENT GENERATION TO FACILITATE CONNECTEDNESS WITH DESIGN OF CLASSROOM LEARNING PLANS
HELP FROM COLLAGUES
HELP SHEETS WITH SCREEN CAPTURES (I'M A VISUAL LEARNER:)) HELP LINE
HELPDESK TYPE OF SUPPORT - FAQS AND QUICK RESPONSE TO HELP QUESTIONS
HOW TO TEACH IT, WHICH ALSO MEANS I NEED TO LEARN MORE ABOUT COMPUTERS TOO.
HOW TO USE EDUCATION DEPARTMENT PORTAL IN BEST POSSIBLE MANNER. SOME ANY TYPE OF PD ON COMPUTER USE & USE OF
PROGRAMS AVAILABLE.
HOW TO.....
'HOW-TO' REFERENCE BOOK, TIME TO 'PLAY AROUND' WITH FEATURES TO BECOME CONFIDENT IN THEM
HYPERLINKING INFO SITES IN WEB QUEST LESSONS
I AM CURRENTLY ENROLLED IN PDPOINT THROUGH TEACHERS HAVE CLASS AND FIND THIS VALUABLE IN UPDATING MY SKILLS AND
FINDING RELEVANT ACTIVITIES FOR MY STUDENTS.
I AM CURRENTLY SEEKING OUT AN ONLINE PROGRAMME TO ASSIST ME DEVELOP THE SKILLS THAT I NEED.
I AM HAPAPY WITH THIS ALREADY SO NO SUPPORT NEEDED AT THIS STAGE
I AM LOOKING FORWARD TO STARTING THE DET ICT COURSES....HAVING NOT STARTED YET.
I AM TAKING PART IN A PROGRAM CALLED TEACHERS HAVE CLASS - AND IT THE PERFECT MEANS OF PROFESSIONAL SUPPORT.
I DON'T FEEL I NEED ANY OR MUCH.. NEED TIME TO FIND/MAKE/REVIEW SITES AND ACCESS TO SERVICES ON MASS IN SCHOOLS
I DON'T KNOW
I DON'T KNOW, IT SEEMS EVERYBODY AT OUR SCHOOL NEEDS SOMETHING DIFFERENT, SO ONLINE SUPPORT/COURSES THAT STAFF
CAN TAILOR TO SUIT THEMSELVES MAKES SENSE TO ME.
I FIND IT EASIEST TO LEARN FROM UP-SKILLED COLLEAGUES. THAT WAY YOU CAN FIND OUT ABOUT WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
WHEN YOU NEED TO KNOW IT (LIKE THE WAY THAT STUDENTS SHOULD BE LEARNING - IE. INQUIRY LEARNING). ALSO, ONLINE
LEARNING IS USEFUL, BUT A BIT LIMITED IN THAT YOU DON'T HAVE THE DIRECT ONE ON ONE INTERACTION. HELPDESK SET UP IS
ALSO OF USE AND CURRENTLY OPERATES IN WA FOR ADMINISTRATION PURPOSES - BE GOOD IF IT ALSO EXISTED FOR USE OF
COMPUTER PROGRAMS. CDS OF BEST PRACTICE ACTIVITIES.

I HAVE BEEN GOING TO SMART BUGS MEETINGS - HELPFUL IN ADAPTING ACTIVITIES FOR USE WITH SMART BOARD          -   FURTHER
JOINING OF SMART EXCHANGE AND SEVERAL BLOGS HAVE PROVIDED A WEALTH OF TOOLS.
I HAVE THE SUPPORT WITH THE TEACHERS HAVE CLASS COURSE. IT IS JUST FINDING THE TIME!!!
I LOOK FOR MY OWN GENERALLY FROM ONLINE COMMUNITIES. OBSTACLE TO MY DLEIVERY OF PL TO COLLEAGUES IS TIME
DEDICATED TO DO THIS - OFTEN OCCURS OUTSIDE OUR WORK TIME- AND TIME TO EXPERIMENT AND LEARN WHILE OVERLOADED
CURRICULUM DEMANDS ATTENTION.
I NEED TO BE ABLE TO SIT DOWN WITH AN "EXPERT" AND GET INSTRUCTION ON HOW TO USE THE COMPUTER MORE FULLY IN THE
DELIVERY OF MY LESSONS. I NEED TO HAVE THE TIME TO EXPLORE AND THE DEVELOP SPECIFIC ACTIVITIES/APPROACHES FOR MY
CLASSES. EXPERTS THAT SHOW YOU AT LIGHT SPEED WHAT TO DO ARE VERY INTIMIDATING, AS ARE THOSE WHO EXPECT YOU TO
HAVE A GREATER DEPTH OF KNOWLEDGE THAN I DO. FOLLOW UP ACCESS AND CHECKING IS ESSENTIAL.
I NEED TO EMERGE MYSELF MORE IN A SUPPORTIVE ENVIRONMENT. I DON'T THINK I NEED ANY OUT SIDE EXPERT TELLING ME WHAT
TO DO.
I WOULD LIKE AN EMPHASIS ON INFRASTRUCTURE IOMPROVEMENT RATHER THAN PD.
I WOULD LIKE TO FIND OUT THE EXTENT OF ONLINE SERVICES AND TOOLS AVAILABLE. THEN I WOULD KNOW WHAT I'M MISSING OUT
ON. AN 'AWARENESS' PD WOULD BE GOOD.
ICT CO-ORDINATOR
ICT COORDINATOR IN SCHOOL
IF ONLY THE OTLS WAS NOT 'SHELVED' DUE TO A LACK OF TEACHERS MEANING THOSE SPECIALISTS WHO WERE DELIVERING THIS
PROGRAM WERE PUT BACK INTO THE CLASSROO. THIS IS THE SORT OF PROFESSIONAL SUPPORT THAT I REQUIRE!
I'M ALWAYS INTERESTED IN INNOVATIVE STRATEGIES AND TECHNOLOGIES AND HOW THEY ARE USED TO SUPPORT LEARNING.
I'M FAIRLY CONFIDENT THAT I CAN WORK MOST THINGS OUT FOR MYSELF BUT LIKE TO HAVE THE FACILITY OF CHATTING TO OTHERS
ONLINE TO PROBLEM SOLVE.
I'M NOT SURE. I DON'T KNOW WHAT'S AVAILABLE. I ALSO DON'T HAVE THE TIME TO FOLLOW ALL THE LEADS I COME UP WITH. I WOULD
LIKE TO BE MORE PROFICIENT IN THE USE OF THE ELECTRONIC WHITEBOARD AND THE MULTIMEDIA PROGRAMS I HAVE ACCES TO.
IMMEDIATE ACCESS TO 100 SP TECHS FROM DET WA
INFORMATION NEW AND INNOVATIVE ICT, THAT WE CAN INCORPORATE INTO OUR EXISTING SYSTEM.
INSTANT ACCESS TO PROGRAM THAT WILL ASSIST IN STUDENT ACHIEVEMENT
INTEGRATING ICT INTO THE CLASSROOM ESP SMARTBOARDS
INTERNAL AND EXTERNAL P.D.
IT WOULD BE GREAT TO BE INFORMED MAYBE BY EMAIL WHEN THERE IS SOME PROFESSIONAL LEARNING AVAILABLE FOR US TO
ACCESS ON THE INTERNET. BEING IN A RURAL SETTING MAKES IT HARD TO FURTHER DEVELOP OUR SKILLS IN THIS AREA.
IT WOULD BE GREAT TO HAVE GRADED LEVELS OF DOCUMENTS AVAILABLE ON A RANGE OF SUBJECTS THAT SUITED DIFFERENT
READING LEVELS - IN A SIMILAR WAY TO LEXILE READING SYSTEM.
KNOWLEDGE OF MORE STUDENT FRIENDLY SITES.
LEARNING HOW TO CHOOSE THE MOST APPROPRIATE CONTENT QUICKLY
LEARNING OBJECTS FOR ECONS. RELEVANT PD THAT I CAN DO IN MY TIME AT LITTLE OR NO COST. THERE'S NOT MUCH POINT IN
PROVIDING HARDWARE AND SOFTWARE IF THE TEACHERS CAN'T USE IT WITH CONFIDENCE.
LESSONS IN ADVANCE SEARCHING AND THEN LESSONS IN THE USE OF WHITEBOARDS. IT IS NO USE TRYING TO TEACH ME IT ALL IN
ONE SESSION, LESSONS NEED TO BE STRUCTURE IN SUCH A WAY THAT I LEARN ONE BIT, GO AND PRACTICE AND THEN LEARN THE
NEXT - IF YOU FOLLOW MY RATHER OBTUSE EXPLANATION.
LISTS OF APPROPRIATE WEBSITES FOR TEACHERS AND STUDENTS TO USE. I SPEND A LOT OF MY TIME SEARCHING FOR SITES.
LOTS. MERGING VIDEO, PICTURES, AUDIO INTO AN INTERACTIVE SCIENCE MAGAZINE FORMAT. CREATION OF LEARNING TOOLS FOR
TEACHERS AND STUDENTS. I HAVE STARTED THIS PROCESS ALREADY MYSELF.
MAKING SURE COMPUTERS WORK. RESOURCES
MENTORING. FACE TO FACE WORKSHOPS.
MORE COMPUTERS FOR THE CHILDREN TO USE
MORE IN-SERVICING AVAILABLE, TO BECOME BETTER EQUIPPED FOR MY OWN PURPOSES, AND SO AS TO BE ABLE TO IMPART
KNOWLEDGE TO MY STUDENTS.
MORE INTEGRATION INTO SUBJECT AREAS
MORE OF HOW TO INCORPORATE THE TOOLS INTO THE CURRICULUM.
MORE PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT IN SCHOOL TIME, NOT AFTER HOURS.
MORE READILY AVAILABLE SOFTWARE AND HARDWARE SUPPORT.




                                      education.au 2008                                                Page 139 of 160
MORE TIME IN WORK HOURS TO INVESTIGATE SERVICES AND TOOLS - MORE PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT TIME - IN WORK HOURS
TO SEE BEST PRACTICE FIRST HAND.....GETTING TIRED OF USING MY OWN TIME AND MONEY!!!!
MORE TIME TO RESEARCH AND SOMEONE TO FIND ALL THE SUITABLE SITES FOR ME
MORE TIME!! SORRY - I NEVER USED TO SAY THIS BUT THE TEACHING ACCOUNTABILITY LOAD AND THE NEED TO INDIVIDUALISE
EDUCATION FOR STUDENTS WITH REMEDIAL AND EXTENSION NEEDS ABSORBS MOST OF ANY DEDICATED TEACHER'S TIME.
MORE TIME.
MORE TUTORIALS / HELP
MORE UP-TO-DATE KNOWLEDGE OF USEFUL WEBSITES AND WEB QUESTS RATHER THAN MYSELF OR THE TEACHER HAVING TO
SPEND HOURS LOOKING
MOSTLY JUST DET (WA) KEEPING ME UP TO DATE WITH ALL THE TOOLS THAT ARE AVAILABLE TO ME.
MPORE PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT AVAILABLE TO LEARN THE WIDE RANGE OF SKILLS NEEDED IN ICT. THE SLICT ONLINE SITE IS
REALLY HELPFUL TO BE ABLE TO SHARE IDEAS AND EXPERIENCES WITH OTHER TEACHERS. THE PD SESSIONS WERE ENSPIRING,
AFTER EVERY SESSION I WANTED TO GO BACK TO MY CLASSROOM AND USE THE SKILLS LEARNT WITH THE STUDENTS.
NEED LIST/DATABASE OF RELEVANT, QUALITY SITES SO TIME IS NOT WASTED SEARCHING
NETWORK ADMINISTRATION SUPPORT
NETWORKING (TALKING) TO OTHER TEACHERS TO FIND OUT WHAT INTERNET SITES THEY USE AND HOW THEY RATE IT FOR
RELEVANCE AND THE DUMMY BOOKS ON POWERPOINT, PUBLISHER ETC.
NETWORKING AND SHARING OF IDEAS THAT WORK, OCCASIONAL TIME OUT OF THE CLASSROOM TO VISIT OTHER COLLEAGUES, TIME
IN SCHOOL TO HELP BROADEN KNOWLEDGE BASE, ACCESS TO ONLINE TRAINING SUCH AS PD POINT

NONE - HAPPY AS IT IS
NONE I CAN THINK OF AT PRESENT

ONE TO ONE, SMALL GROUP AND THE SHARING OF APPORPRIATE RESOURCES
ONGOING SUPPORT IN THE CLASSROOM TO INTEGRATE ICT
ON-LINE ACCESS TO PD WITH IDEAS AND TRAINING.
ONLINE ASSISTANCE WHEN USING SEARCH ENGINES.
ONLINE PD SOUNDS GREAT
ONLINE PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT FOR ALL.
ONLINE SUPPORT AND PD
ONLINE SUPPORT IS THE MOST USEFULL FOR ME.
ONLINE TRAINING FOR PROGRAMS SUCH AS MOODLE, WEB2.0 & PODCASTS
OUR SCHOOL ICT SPECIALIST IS ESSENTIAL IT WOULD BE IMPOSSIBLE FOR ME TO ACHIEVE MY INNOVATIONS WITHOUT TERRY
KEESING.(HE'S HELPING ME BUILD JOHNNO'S SCIENCE)
OUTCOMES, SYLLABUS CONTACTS, LOCAL TEACHING RESOURCES, NETWORKS, ETC
PD
PD IDENTIFIED RESOURCESAND WAYS TO SEARCH RESOUCESSETS OF RELEVANT USE TIME FOR PRE PLANNING PRIOR TO USE
PD THAT FOCUSES OF NEW WEB 2.0 APPLICATIONS TIME TO NEWTWORK WITH OTHER LIKE MINDED PROFESSIONALS PD AS WAS
DONE WITH THE LWICT PROJECT WITH DETWA
PD TO LIBRARY OFFICERS IN SCHOOLS WOULD BE MOST VALUED.
PDS ON SPECIFIC PROGRAMS/SOFTWARE
PEER MENTORING
PERSONAL COMPUTER USE AND TEACHING THE CHILDREN THE BASICS (YEAR 1)
PERSONNEL TO ASSIST AND TIME TO LEARN
PRACTICAL - SHOW ME STUFF. SHORT SESSIONS AND GIVEN THE OPPORTUNITY TO PRACTICE EACH SKILL.

PRACTICAL ACTIVITIES THAT CAN BE COMPLETED BY ME, SO THAT I CAN THEN TRANSFER MY UNDERSTANDING TO THE STUDENTS IN
MY CLASS. REGULAR NEWSLETTERS/UPDATE FORM DIFFERENT WEBSITES HELP TO KEEP ME REMINDED ABOUT ALL THE GOOD
INFORMATION THAT IS AVAILABLE TO ME, IF I WISH TO ACCESS THE SITES.
PRACTICAL CLASSROOM BASED PROGRAMS WEB DESIGN
PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT AND STRATEGIES ON USING ONLINE SERVICES AS A TEACHING TOOL.
PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT AT THE POINT OF NEED.
PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT IN NEW PROGRAMS, METHODOLOGIES ETC, THEN BEING FORCED TO USE THEM FOR A LESSON. THIS
WOULD MAKE ME INCORPORATE THE PD MORE FULLY INTO MY REGULAR PRACTICE.
PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT TO UNDERSTAND THE SCOPE OF THE PRODUCT AND HOW TO MAXIMISE ITS USE. JUST TAKES TOO
MUCH TIME TO CRASH THROUGH IT ONESELF.
PROFESSIONAL LEARNING OPPORTUNITIES DELIVERED IN A WAY THAT SUPPORT TEACHERS. CURRENTLY TEACHERS ARE
STRUGGLING TO COPE WITH THE DEMANDS OF THEIR JOB. EXPECTING THEM TO LEARN ICT AFTER HOURS IS UNREALISTIC AND JUST
WON'T HAPPEN FOR ALL BUT THOSE REALLY COMMITTED TO ICT. WE NEED TO TAKE STAFF OUT OF THE CLASSROOM AND PROVIDE
QUALITY PD AND THEN PROVIDE SUPPORT (MENTORING) TO THEM AS THEY APPLY THE NEW KNOWLEDGE IN THE CLASSROOM.
PROGRAMING AND ASSESSING IDEAS SMART BOARD USE INCLUDING WEBSITES DESIGNED TO USE A SMARTBOARD WITH
PROGRAMS/ TOOLS/ RESOURCES AVAILABLE
PROVISION OF UPDATES AND INFORMATION ON NEWEST TRENDS AND TOOLS AVAILABLE.
PUT OUT INFORMATION ON WHAT CURRENT TOOLS CAN DO. I'LL CHOOSE WHETHER I READ IT OR USE IT.
READY ACCESS TO 1-1 SUPPORT - VERBALLY OR ONLINE IS INVALUABLE
REGULAR (TWICE YEARLY) UPDATES ON SITES OF RELEVANCE TO TEACHERS, ADMINISTRATORS, PARENTS, SO WE CAN KEEP
ABREAST OF THE GOOD (AND BE WARY OF THE NOT SO GOOD) INFORMATION OUT THERE. TIME CONSUMING TO RESEARCH ALL
YOURSELF.
REGULAR AND FAST RESPONSES TO USER QUESTIONS IS A MUST - I TEND TO BE IMPATIENT AND WANT ANSWERS NOW - IF SUPPORT
SERVICES WERE IMMEDIATE OR 'LIVE' THAT WOULD BE INCREDIBLY VALUABLE. IT DOES BECOME FRUSTRATING WHEN SEARCHING
FOR HELP TOPICS BECOME LABOURSOME - AN ONLINE SPECIALIST THAT CAN ANSWER ALL TECHNOLOGY PLATFORM QUESTIONS
WOULD BE FANTASTIC.
REGULAR REFRESHER SESSIONS OF WHAT'S NEW AS THIS TECHNOLOGY IS CONSTANTLY EVOLVING AND PERIODICAL UPDATES OF
'WHAT'S POSSIBLE' AND HOW TO DO THINGS DIFFERENTLY WOULD BE WELCOMED TO KEEP IN TOUCH WITH CHANGES. WORKING IN A
CLASSROOM ENVIRONMENT LIMITS THE TIME AVAILABLE TO "PLAY" AND DISCOVER. THEREFORE TIME TO DO THIS WITH
APPROPRIATE SUPPORT THAT IS EDUCATION FOCUSED WOULD BE HELPFUL.
RELEVANT TO YOUR CLASS MENTORING/PD
RELEVENT PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT.
REMOTE TECHNICAL SUPPORT FOR CURRICULUM SERVERS
SCHOOL TIME TO ENHANCE MY SKILLS
SEARCHING TO FIND RELEVANT INFORMATION. I FIND THE BEST SITES ARE THE ONES THAT ARE GIVEN TO ME BY OTHER
PROFESSIONALS. THE SEARCH ENGINES LIKE GOOGLE ARE BECOMING TO COMMERCIALISED AND IT TAKES A LONG TO FIND THE SITE
THAT IS RELEVENT. IS THERE AN EDUCATION SEARCH ENGINE? I WOULD PAY AND SUBSCRIBE TO ONE IF THERE WAS ONE.
SEE QUESTION 15.
SELF PACED TUTORIALS
SHOWING US HOW TO FIND AND USE EFFECTIVE TEACHING AND LEARNING AIDES THAT ARE APPROPIATE TO THE CHILDRENS LEVEL
OF DEVELOPMENT.
SOMEONE AT SCHOOL THAT CAN ANSWER MY QUESTIONS, TIME AT SCHOOL TO ACCESS SOME OF THE TEACHING /LEARNING
PROGRAMS FOR TEACHERS.
SOMEONE AT THE END OF THE PHONE LINE WHEN A PROBLEM ARISES. SOMEONE WHO KNOWS THE SYSTEM AND IS NOT BASED IN
INDIA! EMAIL CONTACT TO ANSWER GENERAL QUERIES SAFE APPROVED RESOURCE RESPOSITORY
SOMEONE SCHOOL BASED TO PROVIDE UP-TO-DATE INFO ON NEW AND USEFUL RESOURCES AND ALSO SOMEONE AVAILABLE FOR IT
TROUBLESHOOTING.
SOMEONE TO BE THERE TO FIX THE EQUIPMENT WHEN IT BREAKS DOWN, WHICH IT SEEMS TO DO ON A FAIRLY REGULAR BASIS.

TECH SUPPORT FOR COMPUTER PROBLEMS.
TECHNICAL SUPPORT AVAILABLE ON THE SCHOOL SITE.
TECHNICAL SUPPORT ON SITE TO FIX COMPUTERS ETC
TECHNICAL SUPPORT WHICH OPENS PORTS THAT ARE CURRENTLY CLOSED.
THE BEST OF HAD IS A MENTOR WHO KNOWS HOW TO USE THE COMP SUCCESSFULLY AND EFFECTIVELY. HAVING HER ONSITE AND
AVAILABLE WHEN I HAVE A PROBLEM OR CONCERN IS INVALUABLE
THE STAFF ARE BECOMING MORE CONFIDENT IN THE USE OF TECHNOLOGY BUT AS A SMALL SCHOOL WE LACK THE TECHNICAL
EXPERTISE TO SORT OUT PRINTING, DATA STORAGE, EMAIL ETC. IT COSTS US 1000S PER YEAR FOR SUPPORT
THERE ARE MANY SUPPORT SERVICES ON LINE ALREADY.

WAYS TO IMPROVE ICT INFRASTRUTURE IN THE SCHOOL WITHIN THE BUDGET CONSTRAINTS
WE HAVE ACCESS TO A SUPPORT PERSON AT SCHOOL 3 DAYS A WEEK FOR THE MAINTENANCE OF THE COMPUTERS AND THE
NETWORK. THIS IS OFTEN NOT SUFFICIENT. BROADBAND IS NECESSARY TO COMPLETE OUR ONLINE COMPUTER REPORTS BUT THIS
IS NOT PROVIDED BY OUR EMPLOYER. IT IS NOT POSSIBLE TO ACCESS DEPARTMENT EMAIL OR CHILDREN'S COMPUTER FILES AT
HOME. IDEALLY THIS WOULD BE POSSIBLE AS, IN THE PRIMARY SCHOOL, MOST OF THIS WORK HAS TO BE DONE IN THE EVENING AT
HOME.

YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU DON'T KNOW! I AM ALWAYS FINDING NEW WAYS OF USING ONLINE RESOURCES. I HAVE PARTICIPATED
IN 'GROUPS' WOULD PROBABLY LIKE TO KNOW MORE ABOUT SOCIAL NETWORKING TOOLS LIKE CHAT AND FORUMS.

3 Appendix 3: Sampling Tolerance
It should be borne in mind throughout this report that all data based on sample surveys are
subject to a sampling tolerance. That is, where a sample is used to represent an entire
population, the resulting figures should not be regarded as absolute values, but rather as the
mid-point of a range plus or minus x% (see sampling tolerance table below). Only variations
clearly designated as significantly different are statistically valid differences and these are
clearly pointed out in the Key Findings section of this report. Other divergences are within the
normal range of fluctuation at a 95% confidence level; they should be viewed with some
caution and not treated as statistically reliable changes.

6 Appendix 5: How To Read The
  Computer Tabulations
The computer tabulations in the report show the comparisons between [1] the answers
given by the total number of respondents and [2] those given by the various subgroups.
This is done in the form of percentages. Under certain data, you may notice the presence
of + or - signs. These indicate where there is a statistically significant difference between
the responses of the subgroup (e.g. males, people over 65, etc) and the group as a whole.
When the responses of the subgroup are significantly less than the group as a whole, this
is shown by a minus (-) sign. If, on the other hand, there is a significantly higher response
by the subgroup, then a plus (+) sign appears. The degree of significance of difference is
also indicated. Where a single (- or +), double (-- or ++) or triple (--- or +++) sign occurs,
you can be, respectively, 90%, 95% or 99% sure that the subgroup is in fact answering
differently to the group as a whole, and that it is not just a random fluctuation in the data.
(See example below)

Please note that, because of rounding, answers in single response questions will not
always sum precisely to 100%.

In addition, as the base for percentages is the number of respondents answering a
particular question (rather than the number of responses) multiple response questions sum
to more than 100%.
