For teaching Advantages of ICT for Teaching-1 • Presenting information and ideas in a dynamic, attractive and exciting way. • Explaining some difficult concepts and knowledge easily • Ensuring clear delivery of teaching points • Assisting in the preparation of teaching materials
For teaching Advantages of ICT for Teaching-2 • Assisting with time management in class • Helping to cater for students with difficult abilities • Helping to develop students’ co-operative learning skills • Assessing students and using the information gained to extend their learning • Sharing ideas, communicating with the outside world and getting new information about the subject being taught
For teaching Teaching is effective when teachers: • Plan effectively • Understand and teach the basic skills well, in the subject and ICT • Use teaching methods that enable all students to learn • Assess students’ work and use assessment information to help them know what they have to do to improve • Organize and manage the students well • Use time, classroom assistants and resources effectively
For learning Advantages of ICT for Learning-1 • reinforcing students’ learning in a variety of ways • Allowing students to change things easily if they make mistakes, want to add or delete something, try out ideas or make improvements • Enabling them to learn by themselves at their own pace • Saving time • Allowing students easy access to a wide range of information
For learning Advantages of ICT for Learning-2 • Helping them to interpret data and communicate what they have found out • Enabling them to learn subjects that are difficult or dangerous to teach • Enabling them to connect with the outside world • Being patient with students when they make mistakes or do not understand • Improving their thinking
For learning Learning is Effective when students: • acquire new knowledge or skills and increase understanding of the subject • apply intellectual or creative effort to work • are productive and work at a good pace • show interest, sustain concentration, think and learn for themselves • understand what they are doing, how well they have done and how they can improve
For Principals • new opportunities • Food for thoughts
New Opportunities • New opportunities to raise standards through innovation • New opportunities to promote and develop the school Shelly Park Technology College for Girls
Three Questions for principals • Has the school developed a clear and agreed vision for the application of ICT and is this consistent with the overall goals of the school? • How effective is the current use and impact of ICT within teaching and learning? • Is the school clear about what needs to be done to ensure that ICT developments are sustainable and have a positive impact on quality and standards?
For Schools • Before the school starts to use ICT in subject teaching, an effective ICT development plan needs to be taken in account. • It involves:
Effective ICT development planning (1-8) Vision • Has the school developed its strategic vision for the school and classroom of the future with staff, governors, and the wider school community, that reflects what students in your school will experience?
Effective ICT development planning (2-8) Standards • Is the plan sufficiently focused on raising attainment for all students in ICT, including the effective use of ICT within the whole curriculum?
Effective ICT development planning (3-8) Analysis • Is planning based on a careful audit and analysis of the present picture looking at curriculum implementation, staff needs, resource and infrastructure requirements, and wider community links?
Effective ICT development planning (4-8) Coherence • Is the plan sufficiently focused on making ICT integral to the teaching and learning processes, integrated into the targets and priorities of the school development plan so that the key strands of curriculum, management, administration, resources, staff development and home-school policy are linked?
Effective ICT development planning (5-8) Support • Is sufficient expert support used to help the leadership team develop their management role in respect of ICT, sufficient professional development for staff to help them develop their use of ICT in the classroom and sufficient support to keep infrastructure and resources fully operational?
Effective ICT development planning (6-8) Co-ordination • Are the elements of co-ordination—development students’ ICT capability, developing the use of ICT across he curriculum, product awareness, technical support and network management, procurement, monitoring and evaluation, staff development, etc. adequately covered by using an appropriate range of staff?
Effective ICT development planning (7-8) Monitoring • Do senior mangers know the quality of ICT in the school, are targets sufficiently smart, and are there enough and specific measures to check the progress and impact of the development plan in order to take remedial action if necessary?
Effective ICT development planning (8-8) Best Value • Does the school ensure that all ICT funding streams are used effectively and procurement decisions consider the likely total cost of ownership, so that the implications for maintenance, renewal and sustainability are built into the overall resourcing strategy?
