Rising Stars Essentials: ICT

There are several posts on the Taccle2 site which are based on ideas by Ian Addison (search Ian Addison and you’ll find them). Ian’s new book, ‘Rising Stars Essentials: ICT’ is out this week – coincidentally the day after the Taccle Primary book – and I am delighted  to advertise the competition!

“ICT Essentials is aimed at teachers who wish to build their ICT confidence, explore new possibilities or simply learn something new. The book includes advice on getting your classroom ready for ICT as well as plenty of hints and tips on using a whole range of ICT resources across the curriculum – from blogging and animation to creating and publishing eBooks and using online tools. Ideal for both teachers who are less confident of their ICT as well as the more tech-savvy.”

It costs £12.99 and is available to buy on line. Have a look inside!

Here is the content page:

  1. Getting your classroom ready for ICT
  2. Digital publishing
  3. ICT and maths
  4. Presentations
  5. Digital imagery
  6. Finding things out
  7. Sound and music
  8. Animation and video
  9. Game design, control and programming
  10. Modelling and simulations
  11. Social media
  12. Other useful tools
  13. How to…

Together with Taccle2 Primary book, this is an awesome toolkit for primary teachers (although Ian’s book will be useful to secondary teachers as well).
