  1. I have an interview this week and cannot decide what to do for my lesson!! I have 100 ideas but keep talking myself out of them! I can teach anything but have to link it to ICT in some way.
    My original idea was to read a simple story - possibly little red riding hood. Children then decide on the most important parts of the story and freeze frame those parts. I then take a pic of the freeze frames and upload them onto a PowerPoint (My camera is quick at this). The children then retell the story using the PowerPoint images to help.
    Is this totally rubbish? The trouble is I only have 45 mins, it's a Y5 class and I don't know anything about their abilities!! I'm going round in circles, somebody please help me!

    Personally, and for safety's sake, I'd do it the other way round - show them something on your PowerPoint and get them to do some follow-up work. My reason being that if your camera/connection/whatever decides not to work then you're scuppered. For my sanity, I don't rely on ICT for interviews unless absolutely necessary, and then take paper copies as back-up. Good luck

    I'm not sure that year 5 boys would be very happy at telling Little Red Riding Hood - especially with someone they don't know. Could you think of another more age appropriate story or a narrative poem?
  4. Up until the last paragraph I assumed this lesson idea was for a year 1 or 2 class.
    Start with a very clear learning objective and work from there.
    Be careful about being too ambitious with tecnology in an interview unless you have a really clear and well organised plan B if things go wrong!
