3 ICT across the curriculum ICT capability Apply and develop ICT capability ICT the subject ICT in subjects ICT: a tool for teaching (the medium) ICT-based objectives in an ICT context – teaching ICT - basic and higher order k, s and u

4 ICT across the curriculum ICT capability Apply and develop ICT capability ICT the subject ICT in subjects ICT: a tool for teaching (the medium) Examples taken from QCA SoWs and the ICT strand KS3 strategy

5 ICT across the curriculum ICT capability Apply and develop ICT capability ICT the subject ICT in subjects ICT: a tool for teaching (the medium) ICT-based objectives in a subject context - learners develop and apply their ICT capability

6 ICT across the curriculum ICT capability Apply and develop ICT capability ICT the subject ICT in subjects ICT: a tool for teaching (the medium) Examples from updated primary ICT SoW teachers guide, the new primary strategy materials

7 ICT across the curriculum ICT capability Apply and develop ICT capability ICT the subject ICT in subjects ICT: a tool for teaching (the medium) Subject objectives and ICT-related – e.g. the information and process skills of the subject

8 ICT across the curriculum ICT capability Apply and develop ICT capability ICT the subject ICT in subjects ICT: a tool for teaching (the medium) Examples such as enquiry skills in Geography, Editing in English, QCA NC in Action site subject specific case studiesQCA NC in Action site

9 ICT across the curriculum ICT capability Apply and develop ICT capability ICT the subject ICT in subjects ICT: a tool for teaching (the medium) Subject objectives, unrelated to ICT objectives – ICT as a teaching and learning tool.

10 ICT across the curriculum ICT capability Apply and develop ICT capability ICT the subject ICT in subjects ICT: a tool for teaching (the medium) E.g. Using a whiteboard to demonstrate multiplying fractions; Using a CD- ROM to teach erosion, MLEs, preparing lesson handouts, keeping records, etc

11 Ofsted report on ICT Primary Key and emerging Issues: Assessment of ICT capability Staff development and the use of ICT across the curriculum Improving the use of support staff In six schools in ten there has been significant improvement in information and communication technology (ICT) since the previous inspection, a higher proportion than in any other subject. Much of this improvement has taken place over the last two years. Secondary Key and emerging Issues: Discrete ICT courses and the application of ICT in other subjects Improving continuity and differentiation The Key Stage 4 curriculum ICT resources and accommodation Pupils achievement is good in half of schools in Key Stage 3, but is unsatisfactory in one in seven: this rises to one in five in Key Stage 4. Both reports are available from:

12 Leadership and the role of the ICT co-ordinator SLICT National College of School Leadership Shaping the Future – joint course ERYC and Hull University NAACE Mark Foundation Stage Primary Secondary Special Schools Role of the ICT Coordinator – Teacher NOT Techie BECTA Guidance

13 Assessment and evaluation of ICT Foundation, Key Stage 1 & 2 Teacher Assessment Key Stage 3 National Test, Key Stage 4 Formal qualifications NCAction The quality and use of ongoing assessment are unsatisfactory in almost one school in five. Teachers continue to lack confidence in making summative assessments of pupils ICT capability against National Curriculum levels. (Ofsted Primary Subjects Report) There is little effective continuity from Key Stage 2 to 3 and many schools fail to meet the very different needs of pupils as they progress through the Key Stage. (Ofsted Secondary Subjects Report) TransIT – East Riding Transition Test KS2 to 3. Developed by teachers

15 ICT in Schools – The Impact of Government initiatives fives years on 10. The positive influence of ICT in schools continues to rise and can no longer be denied. Although, as yet, ICT is by no means at the heart of our education system, it is now widely recognised as an essential tool for learning in the twenty-first century. Indeed, it is vital that todays children are enabled to take advantage of lifelong learning if they are to survive the constant pattern of change that is likely to mark their working lives. This means not only being comfortable with ICT as a medium, but also being able to exploit its potential to the full and understanding the ways in which ICT can make learning more effective.

19 Lynn Kelsey Curriculum Project Manager for Primary ICT Interactive Whiteboard Consultant

20 "... the use of interactive whiteboards is now more common. The training for those teachers in Years 5 and 6 who are part of the interactive whiteboard pilot project has improved good teaching further. Through stimulating questioning and dialogue, interactive whiteboards capture pupils interest and motivate them, especially boys. Interactive whiteboards, however, do not, of themselves, improve unsatisfactory teaching."

21 "When the use of interactive whiteboards is less successful, it is usually because the teaching fails to engage pupils enough in discussion and lacks a focus on key learning objectives.

22 ICT as a teacher tool (not teaching ICT) Demonstrating Modelling Accessing and analysing Presenting, representing and communicating Testing and confirming

23 Why use a whiteboard? Used imaginatively, interactive whiteboards provide possibilities, insights and efficiencies that are difficult to achieve in other ways.

24 Interactive Whiteboards can… enhance learning in a unique way develop teacher questioning and pupil responses increase interactions encourage engagements with texts enable dynamic representations in mathematics allow visualisation of hypotheses provide quality plenaries mean fewer worksheets!
