Computers, Thinking and Learning
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.
