They have been designed to form an easy to use scheme of work for ICT at this Key Stage. A comprehensive introductory section details good practice and tips for effective co-ordination of ICT, and each unit specified in the National Curriculum is covered in no fewer than three exercises.
It aims to cover the Department for Education and Skills' (DfES) schemes of work comfortably, and has been designed with teachers in mind. Page references between the textbook and teacher's book makes for easy referencing, aims and objectives for each unit are clearly stated, and requirements for completed work are set out for each exercise.
The resource may be particularly useful to NQT's, new ICT co-ordinators, or teachers with gaps in their ICT curriculums.
The Teacher's Book introductory section contains: research findings for ICT; how to approach teaching ICT; appropriate use of ICTs and advice on Internet use.
Each unit has comprehensive notes including: an introduction and description of the unit; possibilities for integrated tasks; what you need to know; expectations for the end of the unit; what evidence is required?
