Duffy (2006, 7) notes ‘when pupils learn about ICT and when they learn with ICT they are being equipped to participate in a constantly developing world’. This quote illustrates and reflects how crucial ICT is in children’s education, starting in the Early Years.  Technology is part of all of our lives, with no sphere untouched by […]

Today was our last EVER ICT session as trainee teachers. The next time we’re involved in an ICT session we will be leading it or will be NQTs on a course. (Scary but so exciting!) It’s quite upsetting that I will never get to enjoy exploring different apps and creating quality resources with the lovely […]

Today’s session focused on the use of ICT across the curriculum, it’s important for people to see ICT as a subject that can support learning and not a stand alone subject. A good example of ICT forming a major part of linking the curriculum was ‘Bridgecraft:technology uniting the physical and digital worlds’ the whole school took […]

In this session we explored computing and it’s place in the Revised National Curriculum. In Key Stage 1 pupils are expected to: understand what algorithms are; how they are implemented as programs on digital devices; and that programs execute by following precise and unambiguous instructions create and debug simple programs  use logical reasoning to predict the […]

To explore our storytelling more we chose the app Tellegami to interview Batman about his experience saving the day. We took a picture of the Batman figure against a background- we chose a beach theme as Batman likes his identity to be hidden so we thought a secluded scene would be appropriate. At first we […]

Our final year began with a Monday morning ICT session, I’ll admit I wasn’t feeling particularly excited for all the hard work this year. However when I walked into the room and saw all the different technology and resources laid out it reminded how enjoyable seminars can be; particularly when we get to explore new […]

I was excited to return to another ICT session, exploring the different apps was very enjoyable and I couldn’t wait to use more. As we finished our trailer in the previous session we decided to explore a different app to create a retelling of the story. We decided to use Puppet Pals, an app with […]

And we’re back…

We have begun year 2 with a bang. I found this ICT session to be the most enjoyable of the week, I think you’ll see why. Our new tutor Helen Caldwell, whom we’d already been introduced as a point of help last year started the session off with a discussion of different technologies used within […]

In today’s session we were to make an ICT resource of our choice as a group. When discovering it was group work I was a little skeptical about how we’d get on with it. As we all know group work can often be a stressful and annoying tasks- more often than not there’s often a […]

This was a particularly enjoyable ICT session. In groups we explored the wonder that is stop motion animation. You have probably come across this when trawling through youtube. Here is an example of a stop motion animation using lego, although this is much more sophisticated than the ones we did! To create this we used […]
