Interactive Children, Communicative Teaching : ICT and Classroom Teaching Paperback
Part of the Enriching the Primary Curriculum - Child, Teacher, Context series
* Why should teachers use information and communications technology (ICT) in their classroom practice? * What contribution does ICT make to enhancing children's learning? * How does technology fit with what teachers already know about teaching and learning and how can it be incorporated into everyday classroom experiences?
This sympathetic and accessible book aims to support teachers in providing rich learning experiences for children through the use of information and communications technology.
The focus throughout is on pedagogy and the authors draw consistently upon an educational perspective which emphasises the socially and culturally influenced nature of learning.
Interactions between teachers, children and computers are recognised as being at the heart of the learning process and practical guidance is provided as to ways in which teachers can incorporate ICT into their existing classroom practices.
The book will be important reading for both student and practising teachers and will be particularly valuable for those who are uncertain or apprehensive about the challenges and opportunities which ICT offers.
