Information, Communication and Learning Technologies
"ICT in the curriculum" must not be equated to "learning about computers!
ICT can be a powerful tool in the learning process. This page contains links to explore new and emerging technologies to support and enrich classroom learning activities.
Interactivity - effective use of ICT in the classroom makes pupils feel they are in control. Not of classroom management, but in terms of independent learning. They can see the results of their actions immediately in front of them.
Suitability - see ICT as another additional tool available to you - yet an interactive and dynamic tool. With sensible use, the educational benefits are immense.
Backup plan - always have something just in case things go wrong. A paper based activity that can be given out. Problems are bound to occur if you don’t! from:http://www.effectiveict.co.uk/ictac/

The ‘Wow’ Factor! Digital Story Telling has created a revolution at our school! A rich tapestry of stories has emerged about the lives of our students. We have learnt so much more about these kids – about what is happening in their lives and what is important to them. These children have real stories to tell – how often do we give them the voice to tell their stories?
