Reflective practice is at the heart of effective teaching, and this book helps you develop into a reflective teacher of ICT. Everything you need is here: guidance on developing your analysis and self-evaluation skills and examples of how experienced teachers deliver successful lessons.

The book shows you how to plan lessons, how to make good use of resources, and how to assess pupils' progress effectively. Each chapter contains points for reflection, which encourage you to break off from your reading and think about the challenging questions that you face as a new teacher.

The book comes with access to a companion website,, where you will find:
  • Videos of real lessons so you can see the skills discussed in the text in action
  • Links to a range of sites that provide useful additional support
  • Extra planning and resource materials
If you are training to teach ICT, this book will help you to improve your classroom performance by providing you with practical advice, but also by helping you to think in depth about the key issues. It also provides examples of the research evidence that is needed in academic work at the graduate level.

The text is informative and useful for tutors however a little advanced for the level of learners taught

The text is aimed at teachig in the secondary school and is not appropriate for the course.

Excellent book. The activities and supporting web links means the book is future proof. Very good links with research providing a balanced view of contentious issues (such as assessment). The Assessment chapter is particularly useful.
