The content is very detailed and applicable to everyday use. I advised the students about the need to use tablets to enhance their learning.
Useful additional information for students as a lot of schools now have purchased banks of iPads. Especially useful for Specialism students and/ or those with an early years focus.
Not as practical as I had hoped. Lots of interesting research, but not the guide for using tablets that I needed.
This is one area teachers need to be aware of. Tablets seem to be very 'in', but how do you use them in the classroom? This books helps answer the question and gives some really good ideas.
Contextualised case studies at the start of each chapter provides the reader with exemplification of how tablets can be incorporated throughout the curriculum. The authors have used everyday language to enable the text to be accessible to all teachers, ITT students as well as to the computing specialist. Links are made between theory and practice and supported well with a wide range of recent and relevant reading. A well-written and structured text.
This book is full of ideas and practical examples for students to explore. The format is accessible and the case studies with examples of planning are a great resource that would benefit those at the beginning of their teaching/early years practice. The chapters cover a wide range of learning areas and opportunities, including storytelling, talk, visual and outdoor learning. This emphasises the place of technology in children's learning in the classroom and beyond and showcases a contemporary pedagogy inspired by digital technology and learning.
This is a welcomed resource for teachers who struggle to make the most out of technology in the classroom! It provides plenty of ideas/helpful hints of how to make the best use of technological resources. This book is really accessible for busy teachers and easy to follow.
The examples of practice are particularly useful for our new module on Digital Literacies and well supported with reference to recent research. Only one chapter specifically on Early Years, hence only supplemental reading.
Very interesting book but not relevant to the course I am teaching at the moment.
Very useful book
Really, really useful book to help improve teaching using technology successfully.
Very useful AND gives practical examples too.
Good for ideas on using innovative technology in the classroom
Great resource for early years students to enable them to think about and plan how they can use technology within the classroom, this books was easy to read and follow.
Will be useful to BA3 students who are completing a primary English module with a theme of digital literacies. The case studies in this book will be a useful stimulus for trainee teachers to explore possibilities for using tablets (and therefore digital literacies) in their practice and to identify how projects such as the ones in this book provide opportunities for children to work towards objectives in the National Curriculum programmes of study for English.
A very practical look at embracing new technology in education
Overall this books gives a great overview for the area in which it was developed for.
In most areas the book reads of well with an overall good structure and language suitable for the level of understanding it was aimed for.
Extremely useful. Clear, well structured and accessible, with practical examples throughout.
There are limited texts of its king in circulation and having invested in the hardware it's great to see a guidance manual for practitioners.
This is a very concise easy to read book, which is great for trainee teachers. Very current and innovative
