Written for student teachers learning to teach in primary and secondary schools and newly qualified teachers, this book has been designed to engage with a wide range of issues related to ICT teaching. It presents key debates that teachers will need to understand, reflect on and engage in as part of their professional development. Chapters highlight major questions, consider the evidence from theory and practice and arrive at possible answers. Building on their learning about teaching using ICT on ITT courses, this book will encourage students and newly qualified teachers to consider and reflect on issues so that they can make reasoned and informed judgements about their teaching. Issues discussed include : * the background to developments in the UK * the globalisation of teachers using technology * the role of the teacher * teacherless classrooms * a whole school approach to using ICT * creativity * visual literacy and ICT * school websites and opportunities for lifelong learning in the community.
