    Abstract

    This paper presents a summary of the key findings of the TTF TPACK Survey
    developed and administered for the Teaching the Teachers for the Future
    (TTF) Project implemented in 2011. The TTF Project, funded by an
    Australian Government ICT Innovation Fund grant, involved all 39
    Australian Higher Education Institutions which provide initial teacher
    education. TTF data collections were undertaken at the end of Semester 1
    (T1) and at the end of Semester 2 (T2) in 2011. A total of 12881 participants
    completed the first survey (T1) and 5809 participants completed the second
    survey (T2). Groups of like-named items from the T1 survey were subject to a
    battery of complementary data analysis techniques. The psychometric
    properties of the four scales: Confidence - teacher items; Usefulness -
    teacher items; Confidence - student items; Usefulness- student items, were
    confirmed both at T1 and T2. Among the key findings summarised, at the
    national level, the scale: Confidence to use ICT as a teacher showed
    measurable growth across the whole scale from T1 to T2, and the scale:
    Confidence to facilitate student use of ICT also showed measurable growth
    across the whole scale from T1 to T2. Additional key TTF TPACK Survey
    findings are summarised.
