Module 3 can only be taken after you successfully complete Module 1 and Module 2 (you can take Modules 1 and 2 in any order, but you must complete both before you take Module 3). Module 3 - the ICT Course Project - consists of planning, implementing, and then reflecting on a technology-enhanced lesson (or lessons) that you carry out with your own students. You will need to draw on the content and ideas covered in Modules 1 and 2 for this. You’re expected to spend about 3 to 4 hours per week on your coursework for Module 3, and you will also attend two ‘real time’ videoconferencing sessions with your tutor and course colleagues to help you plan and implement your ICT project effectively.
