A book for teachers and researchers combining research findings and advice.

Primary teachers need to incorporate the use of computers in their daily lesson plans, but how can this be done most effectively to promote learning skills in the classroom? In this fascinating book, the authors outline a strategy for enhancing the effectiveness of computers for teaching and learning with an emphasis on:
* raising pupil achievement in the core subject areas
* developing collaborative learning in small groups
* using group discussions as a way of improving general communication, as well as thinking and reasoning skills
The approach is to use computers as a support for collaborative learning in small groups and the book presents ways to prepare pupils for talking, learning and thinking together around computers. Excerpts from pupils' discussions illustrate the main issues and guidance on lesson planning and developing and choosing appropriate software is also provided. Thinking and Learning with ICT will be a valuable resource for primary teachers and student teachers.
