This invaluable new text on ICT offers support, guidance and inspiration to anyone training to teach or currently teaching in primary schools, as well as those studying Education Studies at undergraduate or postgraduate level.
The book encourages teachers - and pupils - to realise the potential of the full range of ICT resources. It provides primary teachers with the knowledge, skills and confidence to plan, teach and assess their own ICT lessons, as well as to use ICT creatively across the whole curriculum.
This is not a how to guide or collection of lesson plans, but instead balances research-based theory with everyday experiences, challenging you to understand teaching methods and how they translates into a range of suitable teaching strategies for the whole class, small group or individual using ICT.
