The coverage of this book will provide an ideal text for use during departmental meetings for all curriculum subjects where ICT is an issue. It can also be used as a reference text for school based mentors taking part in the teacher training process. As well as discussing the effective teaching of ICT as a curriculum subject, the author uses sample case studies to illustrate the wider role at Key Stages 3 and 4, for GCSE and for post-16 in the form of VCE. He also advises on the teacher training process; the primary/secondary transfer; issues related to interface design; hardware and software provision; and the assessment, recording and reporting of ICT capability.
This book will appeal to a wide range of target readerships: trainees taking PGCE courses to become specialist ICT teachers as well as other PGCE trainees, as they all have to meet statutory ICT standards; practicing secondary teachers, whether specialists in ICT or other subjects, who need to use ICT in their teaching; and secondary mentors with ICT as a major part of their responsibility.
