The Role of ICT in Pedagogical Activities and its Impact on Achievement Motivation: Plan and foresee the impact

With home-based learning during the pandemic, teachers at all levels have seen a significant improvement in their techno-pedagogical skills. The current question that arises is how to leverage these skills effectively in the classroom to enhance the overall quality of teaching, learning, and assessment using technology. The goal is to provide tangible benefits that boost student motivation and success. This session will begin by briefly addressing the challenges and opportunities of integrating technology into education. It will also explore the concept of achievement motivation and closely examine the impact of ICT use on student motivation. Participants will then dive into planning a pedagogical scenario, learning how to align their technological, pedagogical, and content knowledge to maximize the quality of their learning situation and the motivational potential of ICT for their students. The discussion will be grounded in the latest educational research findings and enriched by the experiences of the teachers in the room. Don't miss out on this opportunity!

About the Presenter: 

Dr Emmanuel Bernet

Dr. Emmanuel Bernet has over 25 years of dedicated service in education as a highly experienced French-Canadian teacher trainer. His journey began in 1996, teaching upper primary school in multicultural and disadvantaged settings. Quickly, he transitioned into guiding and supervising pre-service teachers during their internships and later became a trainer for in-service teachers for Montreal’s schools. Concurrently, Dr. Bernet graduated with a Ph.D. specializing in educational psychology from the University of Montreal in 2010, receiving exceptional distinction and honors. His expertise spans various domains, including school motivation and well-being, competency-based pedagogy, participative classroom management, pedagogical integration of technology, and professional development practices. This breadth of expertise led him to Shanghai, where he served as a full-time adviser in pedagogical innovation for a few years. And for the past decade, Dr. Bernet has played a vital role at the International French School of Singapore (IFS), primarily serving as an educational psychology, technology, and professional learning adviser. His responsibilities include collaborating on significant research projects with universities and delivering countless professional development sessions for teachers and principals.

Dr. Bernet's expertise extends beyond the classroom and the school setting. As an independent consultant, he has been sought after since 2005 to provide training in schools, advise parents, speak to government representatives, lecture university students, and present his work in professional and scientific congresses across more than a dozen countries, particularly in the Asia-Pacific region. His ability to adapt his knowledge and skills to different contexts and audiences is a testament to his versatility and effectiveness as an educational consultant. He has also co-authored research reports, scientific and professional journal articles, and a book chapter. Dr. Bernet's affiliations with prestigious organizations, such as the Observatory on Well-being at School (OBE) in France, the Singapore Positive Education Network (SPEN), and the Interuniversity Research Center on Training and the Teaching Profession in Canada (CRIFPE), further underscore his standing in the field.

Despite his accomplishments, Dr. Bernet values the importance of maintaining practical experience in the classroom while addressing the complexity of professional development efficacy for teachers. He designs training programs and workshops that address genuine teacher needs through solid questioning, experimentation, and reflection on beliefs and practices. His training style highlights the importance of evidence-based pedagogical practices and engaging training methods. He aims for greater academic achievement for all students in a more holistic approach to youth well-being, aligning with MOE goals. Therefore, it is vital for him to positively impact Singapore society as a new permanent resident through continuous professional development for teachers, but also soon through counselling services. Being already extensively trained by the International Institute for Bioenergetic Analysis (IIBA), he is currently augmenting his skills through The School of Positive Psychology (TSPP) in Singapore, paving the way for the final year of a master's degree in counselling and psychotherapy from the University of East London. As you can see, Dr. Bernet offers tailored professional development opportunities to schools and educators with his dedication and expertise, aiming to enhance teacher and student success at school in a holistic, efficient and motivating manner.
