The Perspectives Model


The perspectives model makes visible seven perspectives that are important in informing decision-making in using ICTs to enhance learning.

Educational Vision – The underpinning philosophies of education (such as one-child-at-a-time policy). Is there alignment between vision and provision?

Inclusion – How do we ensure fair use of ICTs for learning for all, particularly in regional areas?

Supporting Technology – Considering the provision of or access to networking, bandwidth, learning platforms and applications. How can we provide end-to-end performance?

Pedagogy – What are the affordances of new learning technologies? How do technologies provide the functionality to enable desired learning, teaching and assessment approaches?

Professional Learning – How do we bring about cultural change?

Student Pathways – How might technology support or hinder movement between institutions? What is the portability of student work?

Policy – Who are making ICT and learning decisions and what is informing the decision-making?

Holistic Perspective – An intergated view of the whole with tensions and emergent possibilities.
