Primary ICT scheme of work

Discussion in 'Primary' started by bfisher, Jan 3, 2012.

  1. Hi, I've recently moved to a new school and there is no real ICT teaching/ scheme of work being implemented at the moment. There is little specialist knowledge of ICT in the school, including me!, and the Newham Scheme seems a good starting point and quite supportive. I want something that can really guide staff and makes it easy to teach ICT and encourage children to learn beyond typing up work and Internet research. However, I can't help but wonder with the speed that technology is moving forward that there might be something newer and more up to date out there? For example, my school is keen to buy ipads but I'm not sure they have thought about how to use them. My fear is also that children's knowledge may already outdate ours so we need to keep up with the times.
    - Does your school use the Newham Scheme? What do you think?
    - Have you used it with Macs?
    - Is there a better option than Newham considering our lack of ICT expertise?

    Any advice would be great.
  2. Hi
    I'm in a similar situation. We are using QCA, but a lot of teachers have moved away from it as it's dated and are doing there own thing. However, this does mean progression is not as it should be. I've looked on the internet and found a few different schemes. Some will not work for us as we do not have the resources at school. Here are the links:
    I still haven't come up with a scheme of work though!
    PS we also have Macs at our school.
