1.7. describe the latest developments in digital technology and their possible application in teaching;
1.8. demonstrate knowledge and understanding of new insights into contemporary physics and informatics teaching methods and strategies;
1.10. integrate physics and informatics content knowledge with knowledge of pedagogy, psychology, didactics and teaching methods courses;
2. APPLYING KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING
2.7. use computing technology to solve scientific and technological problems;
2.10. plan and design appropriate teaching lessons and learning activities based on curriculum goals and principles of interactive enquiry-based teaching;
2.11. plan and design efficient and appropriate assessment strategies and methods to evaluate and ensure the continuous development of pupils;
3. MAKING JUDGEMENTS
3.1. develop a critical scientific attitude towards research in general, and in particular by learning to critically evaluate arguments, assumptions, abstract concepts and data;
3.2. develop clear and measurable learning outcomes and objectives in teaching based on curriculum goals;
3.3. reflect on and evaluate their own practice of teaching;
3.4. accept responsibilities in planning and managing teaching duties;
