Switched on ICT was an answer to our prayers. We have been putting off updating our ICT curriculum for the past two years because of a lack of time and expertise. Then Switched on ICT came into school. It was just what we needed. As an outstanding school we were keen that any new curriculum kept our children up to date with the latest programmes and also recognise the fact that children are now better at ICT than they were 5 years ago. We used to be able to wow year 6 with Power Point but now year three are using it easily.
The media elements of the scheme are a particular favourite. This was something that we really wanted our children to learn, however, we did not have the expertise to plan a scheme.
The teachers love the simplicity of the scheme. They can literally pick it up and know what to teach and more importantly where to simply find the resources. Even the most ICT phobic teachers love it!
I can’t recommend this scheme enough to any school. See what our pupils think...
