Professional Teaching:

Teachers draw on a body of professional knowledge and research to respond to the needs of their students within their educational contexts. Teachers know their students well, including their diverse linguistic, cultural and religious backgrounds. They know how the experiences that students bring to their classroom affect their continued learning. They know how to structure their lessons to meet the physical, social and intellectual development and characteristics of their students.

Teachers know the content of their subjects and curriculum. They know and understand the fundamental concepts, structure and enquiry processes relevant to the programs they teach. Teachers understand what constitutes effective, developmentally appropriate strategies in their learning and teaching programs and use this knowledge to make the content meaningful to students.Through their teaching practice, teachers develop students' literacy and numeracy within their subject areas. They are also able to use information and communication technology to contextualise and expand their students' modes and breadth of learning.

IT Training:

Most people who don’t work in the IT business would mean when they talk about IT training. This means the training teaches you how to use software packages like Microsoft Office, but also in-house CMS (content management systems or customer relationship management systems – another IT concept that can mean more than one thing), and other frequently used programs. Interestingly enough, this IT training generally doesn’t go any further than Word, Excel, PowerPoint and CMS. Anything more in-depth, such as Adobe or Photoshop and it is classed as specialist IT training and not for the everyday, regular mortal!.

It is this distinction that can make it so difficult to really define what IT training is, and isn’t. The label itself is not useful either, because this distinction isn’t explained in the terminology. IT itself is really what allows an entire organisation to operate and goes beyond the software and hardware, but is about how these interact, how the networks are operated and how the server is set up. At the same time, people how use parts of the IT system – computers and software packages – need to have some training as well. Essentially, therefore, IT training is simply training in the part of IT systems in which you are employed.
