We are delighted to announce that Switched on ICT in the Early Years has won a BETT award for Early Years Digital Content! The award was presented at last night's ceremony, where 580 guests gathered to recognise the most innovative ICT products and companies in the education sector. Watch the video!
Switched on ICT in the Early Years is a scheme that helps all practitioners, regardless of experience, to embed ICT into the curriculum in exciting and meaningful ways. It brings together technologies that are freely available in the EYFS to engage young minds. It is ideal for confident practitioners, and also for those with limited experience of ICT, as step-by-step support is provided for every activity. Authors Tricia Neal and Rachel Ager, along with publisher Rebecca Law and Managing Director of Rising Stars, Andrea Carr, collected the award on stage, presented by director at i2i Events Debbie French and host, Jo Brand. "The fact that the BETT awards are judged by teachers makes this award extra special as it means the resource fits the need of teachers and learners in the classroom." Andrea Carr, Managing Director
