Information and Communication Technology is part of everyday life, including education. For teachers, however, keeping up to date with the various technologies that help support the learning process can be challenging.
This book meets those challenges by highlighting the benefits of ICT in teaching and learning, and providing practical advice and real examples from a wide range of subject disciplines. Writing in a refreshingly accessible style, the author dispels common myths surrounding technology and offers pragmatic solutions that can be easily used or adapted, covering the use of:
* overhead projectors and PowerPoint
* videos and slides
* interactive whiteboards
* electronic information resources and e-learning.
This book demonstrates that with a little thought and preparation, technology can provide tangible benefits in the support of traditional teaching and will be essential reading for teachers, lecturers, staff developers and students in further and higher education.
