Inspiring Students with Technology

By David Nettleback

Computers, Thinking and Learning provides teachers with successful strategies for implementing the full potential of ICT in middle and upper school humanities classrooms. It is a practical and innovative resource that has the authentic voice of a teacher and is an inspirational guide for busy teachers across a range of subjects. Each chapter is divided into three parts: the learning and thinking context, classroom strategies, and wider applications and suggested activities. Chapter topics encourage greater student involvement in the deeper and more significant processes of thinking and learning: Concept Mapping: ICT as a thinking and learning tool Oral language: avoiding death by PowerPoint On Line Discussion: a challenge for thinking skills Hypertext: a writing tool for lateral thinking Visual literacies: moving on from text-based learning Responding to student work: can computers help?
