The practical nature of the IMPACT framework has allowed our experienced and early-career teachers – who are from a wide variety of subject areas – to more meaningfully and purposefully use technology with their students.
The framework provides them with a powerful criteria for the selection of technologies and digital applications, ensuring the learning experiences are not only engaging and also purposeful.
While our whole-school pedagogical framework is based around Marzano’s Art of Science and Teaching, our use of the IMPACT framework complements and adds value to this traditional approach.
