Transcript of What should be the priorities for ICT development in primary schools over the next 5 years and how does this impact on pupil outcomes across the curriculum?
What strategies , interventions, and resources have the most impact on pupil outcomes?
What should future funding focuses be for schools?
How do we plan for known unknowns? Unanswered Questions... Best way to predict the future is to create it... Access
Teaching and Learning
Transferable skills Priorities for the next 5 years... 1. Digital Literacy
3. Mobile Technology
4. Safeguarding and e-safety
5. Assessment Access and inclusion...
Creating opportunites for children to have fair and equal access to a rich, skills based curriculum. Government wants all learners to be online by 2011 this has significant implications for example the provision and services schools provide. The ICT Impact Report 2007 by EUN made some interesting but clear findings "that current education systems hinder the impact of ICT, where ICT can not be fully exploited,"
Also both boys and girls are both motivated by the use of ICT, but the affect on boys seems to make them work more like the work pattern of girls. With ICT, motivation is independent of ethnic background, however socio-economic background has an impact. Examples from my own school of removing barriers to learning, improving access and making learning more inclusive range from training staff and children to:
Using Big Key keyboards and pupil friendly microphones in KS1 and Foundation stage.
Using software resources like Wordshark 4 to support SEN children.
Using software like Kartouche on mobile netbooks with video/mic facilities to promote oracy in EAL children.
Using Film Club to target low achieving BME boys disenfranchised in the classroom. Teaching and Learning...
ICT is a vehicle to raise pupil enjoyment and attainment... The number of PC's in schools has rose about 75% over the last 5 years this is not included other ICT technology. BECTA report Raising Standards 2009 "A curriculum is only as good as those who teach it," Cambridge Primary Review 2009 ICT now has been recognised as a foundational knowlege skill, like Literacy and Numeracy. These skills must be embedded across the curriculum which form the core of "Essential for Learning and Life," Rose Review 2009 Over 95% of teachers believe that the use of technology is raising standards in schools and colleges BECTA review Raising Standards 2009 An example from my own school is the use of an e-learning programme called Digismart, this was afterschool club which raised the ICT, Reading, behaviour, confidence and self esteem level of an underachieving group for various reasons. Future Challenges and Transferable skills...
I have already highlighted the future challenges and they are concerning.
I will talk futher on Transferable skills. Digital Literacy...
The skills, knowledge and understanding that children need to learn
in order to participate fully and safely in a digital world. Key aim of the Governments Digital Britian Strategy 2009 Evidence shows that many children feel confident about using technology. This does not not show competence;particularly for higher order thinking skills for example being able to understand bias in sources. Haydin and Barton 2007 Digital literacy is essential for the future one reason out of many it it affects equality of access to information and services. The future success of children depends on the experience of engaging children effectively with education. Virtual Learning Environments (VLE)... Mobile Technology...
Mobile technology allows the walls of the classrom to be removed, it allows teachers to
plan for pupil directed indepedent learning opportunities and allows children to collaborate and work kinasthetically. Using mobile technology shifts the traditional paradigm of teaching and learning for example using multi-sensory technology. An example from my school is where children used netbooks to record blogs on a residential to the Lake District. Siftables is a new emerging technology... Safeguarding underpins everything and is at the centre of
ICT development and ECM The Rose Review proposes clear rationale for e-safety how this translates in my school
for example is that children are taught the skills of how to be safe online
as opposed to all content simply being blocked and filtered. Change the role of the school and the teacher as mere dispenser of information to collaborators and co-ordinators within a network, with the removal of geographic and temporal restrictions. VLE's fundamentally change the way we communicate and interact with both students and parents and the wider community. Assessment...
The DCSF is currently considering how the new core of the primary curriculum-ICT
should be assessed and reported to parents Ensure Impact...

In a recent study it was found that when too much choice is offered it can lead to falling standards, the purpose of ICT should always be set within an environment where there is a clear framework for their learning Harrison and Fischer 2006 Pupil outcomes across the curriculum Every Child Matters...

Achieve Economic Wellbeing Quality assurance procedures Broadband access in classrooms is one nesessary condition to benefit new technologies for learning. It results in significant improvements in pupils performance in national tests. Overall attainment improves as a result of embedding ICT into teaching and learning, but schools with higher levels of e-maturity demonstrate a more rapid increase in performance than those with lower levels. Impact Studies Report Balanskat and Kefalla 2007 ICT leads to postive motivational outcomes when supporting engagement, there are indicators ICT impacts positively on pupil attendance and behaviour inside school and some impact on their behaviour outside school for example;homework. Motivational Effect of ICT on pupils DfES 2008 In my own school using Google Sketchup to explore graphical modelling as opposed to Microsoft Word allowed an altogether different teaching and learning experience, children were able to link into several other skills from different aspects of the curriculum.
