By supporting the development of teaching and working directly with the education community to improve schooling practices, we aim to improve schooling in WA and maximize the effective use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) to support teaching and learning in schools. Through promoting and conducting relevant research, Digital Technologies is focused on improving learning outcomes with the aided use of learning and teaching ICT tools and therefore improving the student experience at school.
The Early Childhood Research Group aims to add to the quality of early childhood experiences for all children and their families, at a time of rapid change in policy and practice both nationally and internationally.
As a multi-disciplinary team, we engage with families, the community and formal care and education settings, as well as industry and our teacher education students to explore key issues in early childhood.
The mission of the Institute is to enhance the quality of education and to close the gap between high and low performing students and schools.
This will be achieved through researching education and development to reform educational policy, enhance school leadership to achieve school improvement, and enhance teaching practice to improve student engagement and learning outcomes.
