Helping Teachers Develop Technology Rich Learning Experiences.

10 September 2010 ---- Promethean, a global leader in interactive classroom solutions, has partnered with Charles Sturt University to offer teachers the opportunity to develop their technology skills through a part-time ICT scholarship.

As part of Promethean's commitment to teacher education and development, the Promethean Scholarship will be a Graduate Certificate in ICT Education. Teachers with Promethean Scholarships will have the first subject of this course provided for free.

This is a great opportunity for K-12 teachers wanting to develop engaging, technology-rich learning experiences. All students will be trained in practical, classroom-based applications of Adobe and Microsoft technologies and will be able to graduate after just 8 months of part-time study.

Promethean General Manager for Australia and New Zealand, David Spencer says, "At Promethean we strive to provide teachers with support that goes far beyond the technology in the classroom. We encourage teachers to develop their skills in a strong community environment. Promethean Planet is the largest online teacher community in the world and we invite any ICT candidates to contribute to the already huge volume of resources with current and localised curriculum material available for use in Australia and around the world. Geography is not a barrier to good teaching and learning, and this is illustrated by this scholarship opportunity".

There will be two Promethean scholarships available for Session 3, 2010 intake. This will be available for Australian and New Zealand residents. Applications for these scholarships must be submitted by 1st October, 2010.
