Review

The Ultimate Guide to Using ICT Across the Curriculum has been written to appeal to the full range of teachers from the nervous beginner, to the enthusiastic learner and the expert user. Jon Audain has packed in a wealth of exciting and creative ideas that will enthuse teachers and pupils alike. His easy style makes this book very readable even when he has covered new areas of the curriculum like coding. The publication is timely and teachers who buy it will feel well prepared to plan and execute some motivating lessons using ICT in English, Maths, science, the humanities, music, art, design and technology, physical education and modern foreign languages. He also provides valuable information about supporting children with special need and protecting the digital child- a truly comprehensive handbook. - Dr Christina Preston, Professor of Education Innovation and Founder of MirandaNet

As a new ICT Coordinator, this is a must read! The content is current, easy to digest and is suitable for all levels from grass roots up. The book will instantly turn technophobes into techno-geeks! I'm already bursting with fresh new ideas to try in my classroom. Thank you Jon Audain! --Rachel Atkins, ICT Coordinator

From the technology nervous practitioner to the experienced ICT pro - this book has it all. It provides creative uses for ICT across all areas of the curriculum as well as general tips and advice. This is a book that can be 'dipped' into or read all the way through but one thing is for certain you will take away more than one tip/tool/technique to use. --Dawn Hallybone, Deputy Headteacher

A must for every primary classroom! Cleverly written, Jon Audain is there to hold your hand when you need it making new concepts and technologies less intimidating, he is also there to give you a push, motivate and challenge even the most confident ICT users. Whatever your experience or range of ICT equipment, this book will provide you with a wealth of ideas and easy to implement strategies for ICT in your school. --Louise Bristow, Deputy Headteacher

By Emma G
Format:Paperback
This is a very comprehensive text that is just as relevant to ICT and Computing coordinators in school as it is to classroom practitioners. It is written in a clear and readable format that will enable the reader to access the information they need when it is appropriate. It is full of top tips and simple tricks to ensure technology can be used creatively to maximise children's learning across the whole primary curriculum. It is a great book that I highly recommend.

After leaving my last open university assignment until the last minute this book was a God send!! Lots of great ideas for incorporating IT into every curriculum subject. I thought it was a bit expensive but I'm sure it's a book I will refer to frequently.

If you only invest in one book to help with ICT in the classroom this is it. It "does exactly as it says on the tin". Invaluable for all levels of interest and abilities, featuring practical advice across the curriculum.
