ICT in Subjects: IT’s actually happening
Dai is currently delivering Year 7 and Year 8 ICT lessons by team-teaching with other subject specialists; there are no discrete ICT lessons. So far this year it has been the Geography, English, RE, Music and PE departments that he has taught with. Units of work are collaboratively planned to find innovative ways of accessing and delivering the ICT curriculum whilst enhancing, and where possible deepening, pupil learning in the partner subjects. This workshop will exhibit the results of this work, lessons learned and pleasant surprises, with a range of ICT activities designed to enhance the subject specialist learning. It will provide you with ideas for activities that have been tested and evaluated in the classroom. Dai is using the evaluation of this way of teaching ICT as the action research project for his MA in Leading Innovation and Change.
