9780826499219: Innovate with ICT: Enhancing Learning Across the Curriculum

The majority of ICT books do a reasonable job of explaining how applications work. However, they leave the educator with a mental leap to make: 'How can I make use of this?' Sometimes this challenge is too big and leads to lessons that lack rigour or, worse still, the teacher abandoning ICT completely. This book uses hands-on tasks to explain how to use ICT effectively and in an engaging way. Section One shows how to employ different ICT applications to create exciting resources. The focus is on showing the benefits of each tool and how they can be utilised by teachers in both their preparation and lesson delivery. After every section teachers will have created a useful and interesting resource that can be used and employed in other circumstances. Section two, applies these tools to classroom practice. It allows teachers to approach ICT from the correct angle by allowing them to say, 'I want to develop thinking skills with the students, how can ICT help?' or 'Could setting up a Wikipedia assist in advancing students' independent learning skills?' This approach is much more effective than starting with technology and trying to fit the less content around it. This book, therefore, looks at effective planning and how key skills should be approached and addressed with pupils.

Review:

Mention —Book News, November 2008

"Clearly written and accessible text is complemented by screenshots to guide the user through each example. The book has lots of good ideas for both reluctant and experienced users of ICT in the classroom;a number of them could easily be adapted to use in the library's information skills programme"The S-L, Winter 2008 (Marianne Bradnock)

'Innovate with ICT provides a useful toolkit...the book is written to cajole and encourage any level of ICT user to take the next experimental step. The book expects the reader to have some ownership of commonly used software, however also recommends a range of free downloadable applications. Overall, I would suggest that a wholesome effort has been made to provide a selection of very easy to read, step-by-step ICT learning and teaching resources.'
