Raising Achievement Using ICT History Mexborough School By Mr RJ Huggins
Raising Achievement Using ICT ICT allow teachers to present information in new and exciting formats. It encourages even experienced staff to experiment with new teaching styles and share good practice. Packages like PowerPoint allow teachers to animate pictures, diagrams, photographs, maps & even mark schemes. Pupils of all abilities, especially boys, find the visual nature of PowerPoint a lot more accessible. It gives pupils access to teaching materials that would be normally far too expensive to reproduce. The media effects can help to add pace, style and fun into a lesson. Data projectors & PowerPoint are tailor made for allowing students to develop their oracy & literacy skills. Broadband access and interactive whiteboards can bring CD ROMs and revision websites to life.
