Strategic View of ICT in Hornsea School and Sixth Form Centre Introduction ICT - and the internet in particular – have created an entirely new environment for teaching and learning. The internet makes possible information, communication and collaboration in ways undreamed of even five years ago. However, the challenges are considerable ……….. We want to integrate ICT within the school in a way, that will be of real practical benefit to every member of staff, regardless of the fact that the majority are from a non-technical background. Less than 20% of teachers have the basic confidence and competence to exploit ICT as a tool for learning. (Specialist Schools Trust) We want to maximise participation and involvement and enhance the community within the school (parents, teachers, governors etc). We want to make learning resources available to parents, pupils, teachers anytime, anywhere.
Key Issues How can we increase and enhance parental involvement with their childs education? How can we effectively make lesson resources available to pupils outside the conventional school environment? The school has a great ICT suite but our children only get access twice a week. How can we integrate ICT into our schools as painlessly as possible for all the staff? How can we give our staff the confidence and competence to engage with the interfaces?
Benefits Allows the teaching and learning process to continue long after the lesson has finished. Very flexible, allowing teachers to work from home. Provide the parents of pupils the opportunity to work with the teacher to enhance the pupils learning process. Personal Learning: – improves their learning-to-learn skills – improves their flexibility as learners – allows the adaptation of learning materials and experiences to the individuals learning styles and preferences
Conclusion Imagine that you wake up in the morning to discover that your school has an adequate supply of computers and reliable networking. Imagine also that all your teachers as part of their professional practice are now confident in the basic use of ICT. What changes would then be possible and desirable to underpin a world-class education system fit for the new millennium? Caveat Learning is at its heart a social and socialising process. ICT cannot replace the need for the human touch.
