Book Details


'I have really enjoyed reading this book, it is written in a clear, non-patronizing way and the use of technical jargon is avoided. The information given is really informative and the activities are ones I could genuinely use during an ICT lesson' - Janine Thornhill, Higher Level Teaching Assistant (with ICT specialism). This easy-to-read guide is packed full of practical examples and suggested activities to help the busy teacher or teaching assistant. It provides the reader with the subject knowledge needed to confidently teach ICT skills and use ICT in planning, preparation and assessment. The focus is on the difference between learning ICT skills and applying ICT, integrating ICT into the curriculum and learning by doing. Key features include: o activities incorporating word processing, database, spreadsheet, graphics, control software and Internet use (including email). o advice on how to meet Foundation Stage and the ICT QCA scheme objectives for each year of primary education. This is an invaluable resource for trainee teachers, HLTAs and TAs, established teachers, supply teachers, ICT co-ordinators and all other educational professionals involved in teaching or supporting ICT within primary education.
