How can you use ICT to boost the achievement of all your pupils?

This practical teachers’ guide will help you to unlock the enormous potential of new technology in order to enhance pupils’ learning, particularly for young people with additional needs. Written by two of the UK’s leading technology experts, this invaluable new resource will enable you to use ICT effectively to make lessons more accessible, motivating and fun.

With 50 illustrated case studies and 20 starter activities, this practical resource will help you to introduce new technology into the inclusive classroom. It has been specifically designed to help develop your pupils’ key skills, such as problem solving, developing concepts and communicating to different audiences. In each activity, the authors show why and how a particular resource was used and show how similar techniques can be implemented to open up the curriculum to your learners.

The authors include timely and realistic advice on how to use a range of technologies from the cheap and cheerful – and even free - to more sophisticated and specialist packages. Find out about:
