Primary children - what would you like to see them doing (IT wise)
This may ramble a bit :fear:
I have been asked by the HT and by the ICT co-ordinator what "should" our children be doing/using IT wise and what to develop with them next.
Now we have individual email accounts for years 3 and above - I will be supporting new staff in using this more effectively with the children.
Each class has a digital camera and flip cam - again I will be showing how to edit pics and vids
We have no space for anymore pc's in and around the school!!
The HT has her heart set on handheld devices - ipads/ipods etc, is anyone using these effectively in a Primary school environment?
I am considering starting up a computer club, does anyone do this for Primary, and what years? My thinking is to target Year 3/4 initially and get their skills moving on, but I'm not sure what the club should/could be about?
I am at the stage now where I have a little bit of free time (shhhh) so I am able to support classes/teachers/children more directly, but I do not want to be helping teach "death-by-Powerpoint" etc.
So what do you think?
