Information and Communication Technologies in Teaching
Learning can be enhanced by using information and communication technologies (ICT) in various ways. At the same time the student will learn important working and information society skills for postgraduate studies and working life. In the new curriculums the role of ICT is emphasized and suitable technology is present in all learning in a way that is appropriate considering the age group and learning contents starting from early childhood education.
The TOP Centre (Tietokone opetuksessa - TOP-keskus) develops the use of information and communication technologies in teaching in the Education Division and offers continuing education and support in pedagogical ICT matters. Web services utilized in teaching have been collected on the edu.turku.fi site and instructions on how to use them are at edu.turku.fi/tvt/ . The city’s IT Services is in charge of the functionality of appliances and the web services.
