BECTA have recently launched an interactive website and a ‘hard copy’ pdf showing how a ’21st Century Teacher’ explores and exploits technology for the benefit of learners, families, schools, colleagues and themself. (Grammar check – themselves? It is singular, teacher. Please help!).

21st century teachers use ICT to:

• deliver greater flexibility and choice of lessons and teaching techniques
• communicate information and concepts clearly with high quality lessons and resources
• make learning exciting and engaging for all learners
• provide adaptive solutions for learners with special needs
• create a learning environment where learners feel safe and secure
• extend learning and work in partnership with parents, families and the community
