Intel® Teach Elements Australia
Because great teachers never stop learning
Intel® Teach Elements is a series of 4 free, interactive eLearning courses that can be taken anytime, anywhere. These compelling courses have been localized for Australia and provide deeper exploration of key 21st century learning concepts for all teachers.
Each Intel Teach Elements course includes online modules (c 5 hours) and offline action planning (c 10 hours). They can be taken individually, in any order and require no prior IT skills. Intel Teach Elements courses are evidence-based and designed by teachers for teachers.
Each Intel Teach Elements course resembles an animated tutorial including audio narration and dialogues and interactive exercises to check your understanding.
Complimentary Facilitation Kits are available for each course to support teachers who wish to mentor colleagues throughout the course. Facilitated courses involve discussion and sharing with peers, and therefore additional hours to those above.
Starting in 2014, Intel® Teach Elements courses now offer teachers the opportunity to earn professional learning certificates. Teachers in any jurisdiction can now undertake a short quiz at the end of each course if they wish to receive a certificate for 5 hours for completion of the online modules. All teachers are advised to check in advance in case they can obtain a certificate through their employer/jurisdiction for longer hours (action planning time included). This may particularly apply to teachers who are employed by the NSW and Victorian Education Departments and some Catholic Education Offices.
Intel® Teach Elements courses have been mapped to the Australian National Professional Teacher Standards (NPTS). You can download the NPTS Reference Guide for each course which indicates how the course aligns with focus areas of the NPTS.
