New Tools for Learning: Accelerated Learning Meets ICT (Paperback)

Usually despatched within 2 weeks.


In the next five years we are likely to discover with increasing certainty how learning happens and how we can best support learners of all abilities and needs. ICT in all its forms will have a dramatic and catalytic role to play in this learning evolution - especially as we learn more about the subtle interplay between hearing, seeing and doing. Yet at the moment we risk confusing the catalyst with the effect - if our gaze stays fixed on the technology, the dramatic learning opportunities it might encourage could pass us by. As if by magic, just as our knowledge and understanding of accelerated learning theory is developing, we have new classroom tools to help us support many of its key principles. Carefully used, data projectors linked to computers can fill a classroom with wall with a still or moving image, and provide new opportunities for showing the big picture at the start of a lesson and for rolling a scrolling review of what has been learned at the end. Step by step, author and Guardian columnist, John Davitt explains how you can make the most of this opportunity. This book outlines five practical, whole-school ICT projects that will inspire staff and pupils alike.

Many ideas for the use of ICT across the curriculum are provided along with guidance on intranets, environment, turboteaching and zoning.
