Description/Abstract

This book supports secondary trainees, whatever their subject specialism, who wish to develop their knowledge and understanding of the ways in which ICT can enhance learning and teaching.

It recognises the variety of contexts in which ICT is used and demonstrates the many ways in which it can support learning and teaching, both in the classroom and in the virtual worlds of school intranets, websites and learning platforms. Practical tasks and teaching tips demonstrate how imaginative use of technologies can enhance traditional teaching and enable new approaches. In addition, the book provides trainees with all the basic skills required as well as guidance on software and activities to engage pupils in their own learning.

The book is motivated by the conviction that ICT should be used as an effective tool for teaching and learning and not just for its own sake. It promotes creative and enthusiastic teaching that fully utilises the potential of current technologies underpinned by a thorough knowledge of pedagogy.
