Tackling computing head on, this book enables trainee and experienced teachers to better understand what computing is and how to use ICT effectively in teaching and learning. It is not a ‘how to’ guide or a collection of lesson plans, but instead balances research-based theory with everyday experiences, challenging readers to understand teaching methods and how they translate into a range of suitable teaching and learning strategies using ICT. This book offers primary teachers the knowledge, skills and confidence to plan, teach and assess creatively to enhance learning across the whole curriculum. This second edition includes updates of all chapters and completely new chapters on: • mobile technologies • social media, and • modern foreign languages. Gary Beauchamp places theory and practice hand in hand, providing a uniquely relatable resource based on his own teaching practice, classroom experience and research.

[This book is] absolutely wonderful. It will be my new Bible... I have used it loads already in preparation for my ICT Mark assessment. Taking on the role of ICT co-ordinator can be quite a daunting task but this step by step guide, breaking things down into manageable chunks will be very supportive. I love the blogging idea - the comments made by the characters are very realistic. This is just what new co-ordinators need, I wish I'd had this when I took over co-ordination of ICT! - Christine Beedham, Primary ICT adviser, Warrington Every primary school has the daunting task of embedding ICT and e-learning into their curriculum. This practical manual is the first part of a two volume set that together makes up a detailed two year training programme for primary ICT and e-learning co-ordinators. The books combine key strategies and information with a weblog discussion from a group of 'virtual' co-ordinators who share their problems, fears and successes over the two-year programme, based on the author's wide experience of working with new co-ordinators and experienced staff on training programmes and in general support. Book 1 is designed specifically for co-ordinators new to the role who need starting points and broad support. It presents a structured training programme split over three terms, guiding co-ordinators through the key stages of developing and implementing ICT policy and practice, including: o auditing existing school systems o reviewing and revising the school policy for ICT o reviewing the ways in which ICT is used as a teaching and learning tool across the curriculum o examining methods for the management of technical support services o establishing a clear overview of standards in ICT, including a review of assessment procedures, moderating work, monitoring teaching and learning and creating E Portfolios.

How is information and communication technology (ICT) changing teaching and learning practices in secondary schools worldwide in the 21st century? This is the central question addressed by researchers involved in the series of surveys comprising the Second Information Technology in EducationStudy (SITES ). The question is a multifaceted one, with each facet raising additionalq uestions relating to both theory and practice. These include the following: • What traditional and new pedagogiesare evident in the 21st century? • What is the role of ICT in the teaching and learning process? • What ICT infrastructure is available in schools? • How can teachers and their administrators be prepared for effective practice? • How have these conditions and considerations changed since the first SITES survey in 1998? • What are the trends within and between national education systems? • What do the differences and similarities between these systems suggest? • How shouldchange be promoted in education in order to support teachers in their work? • Is there evidence that key strategic factors commonly found in ICT related educational policies do influence teachers’ pedagogical use of ICT? Because these questions are interconnected, the SITES 2006 researchers recognized that if we are to make sense of changes in pedagogical practicesas a result of IC T use, then we need to view those practices in terms of the interacting layers in the 22 education systems surveyed.

Information and communications technology (ICT) pervades virtually all domains of modern life-educational, professional, social, and personal. Yet although there have been numerous calls for linkages that enable ICT competencies acquired in one domain to benefit another, this goal has largely remained unrealized. In particular, while technology skills and applications at work could be greatly enhanced by earlier complementary learning at school-particularly in K-12 education, a formative and influential stage in a person's life-little progress has been made on such linkages. At present, the curricula of most U.S. high schools focus on skills in the use of tools such as specific word-processing software or contemporary Internet search engines. Although these kinds of skills are certainly valuable-at least for a while-they comprise just one component, and the most rudimentary component, of ICT competencies. The National Academies held a workshop in October 2005 to address the specifics of ICT learning during the high school years would require an explicit effort to build on that report. The workshop was designed to extend the work begun in the report Being Fluent with Information Technology, which identified key components of ICT fluency and discussed their implications for undergraduate education. ICT Fluency and High Schools summarizes the workshop, which had three primary objectives: (1) to examine the need for updates to the ICT-fluency framework presented in the 1999 study; (2) to identify and analyze the most promising current efforts to provide in high schools many of the ICT competencies required not only in the workplace but also in people's day-to-day functioning as citizens; and (3) to consider what information or research is needed to inform efforts to help high school students develop ICT fluency.
