How does ICT affect job opportunities for teachers?

Sunday, January 1st, 2012 | education

When teachers are introduced to technology, logical questions for them are:

  • How does technology affect my career?
  • Is it a threat?
  • How will it help me in my current teaching job?
  • Does it open up other job opportunities?

Here are a few thoughts for you to ponder about ICT and your career?

As schools move towards digital inclusion, ICT skilled teachers will be the first hired and the last fired.

Being skilled in ICT may not lead to an immediate promotion for a teacher, but it opens up many future career opportunities.

Teachers don’t have to fear: technology can make them more productive, but it will never make them redundant.

Some teachers who learn how to use technology in the classroom find other career opportunities opening up to them.

For those teachers who view teaching as their permanent chosen career, ICT empowers them to become super teachers.

I was very fortunate. From Steenberg High as SNA to facilitator at the Khanya project and tutor of Physics at many schools. As my contract was coming to an end (lack of imagination by WCED), I managed to get work as a techie. Not too bad I think. Growth is the operative word.
