Description

As the presence of computers in the primary classroom increases and IT becomes a bigger part of learning, the book takes a realistic look at the role of the computer in the National Curriculum, and asks some important questions. The book is designed to help teachers incorporate IT into their day-to-day teaching, offering practical guidance and advice on task planning and management and includes examples of classroom practice. The book covers all curriculum areas, examining curriculum-specific issues as well as more general concerns such as pupil-expectation and self-esteem, problem solving, collaborative learning, data-handling, homework and the effects on the pupil-teacher dynamic. This book will be essential to all primary school teachers and trainees.
