March 2007 | 192 pages | Learning Matters
Motivated by the conviction that ICT should be used as an effective tool, this book shows how it can support teaching and learning in the classroom and in the virtual world of school intranet, websites and learning platforms. Practical tasks and teaching tips demonstrate how imaginative use of technology can promote creative and enthusiastic teaching, as well as enable new approaches to teaching and learning.
