Professional Development for Middle Leader Teachers: ICT Integration in Schools in Japan
Abstract: In this study, the author programed Middle leader teacher training that could correspond to ICT integration at school. Specifically, it was a means to learn not only the content related to teaching the information, but also the training design and training facilitation at the same time, so as to convey this knowledge to other faculty within the school. To do so, the teachers learned the training design and how to make use of training facilitation after learning about the concept of TPACK, and made use of this in a program to practice simulated training. As a result, not only knowledge of TPACK but also technology concerning training design and training facilitation could be obtained at the same time. The author was able to generate these effects because participants gave positive evaluations of their simulated training.
