Learning and Teaching Using ICT - Practical Support Pack

Created on 03 July 2006 by ncetm_administrator
Updated on 22 July 2015 by ncetm_administrator

Learning and Teaching Using ICT - Practical Support Pack - is an online collection of materials designed to help Primary and Key Stage 3 Secondary teachers develop their teaching practice using ICT.

The website - www.teachernet.gov.uk/supportpack - brings together video case studies, lesson plans, multimedia resources and ICT support materials, all organised into easily searchable modules. A key feature is the evaluation and reflection materials which help teachers assess the impact the ICT element of the lesson has on their teaching, and their pupils’ learning.

www.teachernet.gov.uk/supportpack at a glance:

  • Features hundreds of teaching topics across the curriculum
  • Each teaching topic has a ready-made lesson plan and teaching materials, including multimedia resources
  • Can be used by Primary and Key Stage 3 Secondary teachers, including trainees and NQTs, as well as teaching assistants and other support staff
  • Materials are aligned to the Primary and Secondary National Strategies’ Frameworks, where appropriate
  • Evaluation and reflection materials will help teachers assess how the teaching and learning objectives have been met, and how the lesson can be improved
  • Can be used independently, or with colleagues to share best practice
  • Ideal as part of a formal or informal professional development programme
  • Content has been written by experts in teaching subjects using ICT
  • There are 18 modules linked to the Secondary National Strategy Framework for Teaching Mathematics and the National Curriculum.
  • They comprise lesson plans, classroom resources and practical advice written by experts in teaching Mathematics using ICT, developed with the support of The Mathematical Association
  • The Mathematics modules cover the four key strands of Mathematics as well as provide opportunities for pupils to develop their problem-solving skills, mathematical strategies and thinking skills
  • Example module: (Year 7) Generating sequences focuses on using graphical calculators to generate sequences and identify the term-to-term rule. A teacher model of the graphical calculator is used with a whole-class display to model generating sequences to pupils. Pupils also work with graphical calculators individually or in pairs to explore and experiment generating their own sequences with different term-to-term rules
  • Modules make use of specialist software as well as including ideas on how to use generic packages in different ways such as using Microsoft Excel for data handling

Is there any chance these links could be updated please? Neither the original link nor the dcsf one appear to work.

The Year 9 activity "Match the Graph" has been used by many teachers using Graphical Calculators (all makes) with pupils for the first time. It uses the simple idea of screen sized transparencies to support pupils to make and test conjectures relating to the equations of straight lines.
