Teachers are now expected to use technology to enhance students’ learning, but what does this mean in the classroom and how can you apply it effectively to subject teaching?

This book, for pre-service and qualified teachers, offers you a guide for using technology in primary and secondary schools, including how to decide which technology resource to use, safeguarding and ethical considerations and computer coding in the classroom. Further guidance is provided on using technology across the learning areas of literacy, mathematics, STEM and the arts.

Key features include:

·        Classroom scenarios which tackle common challenges faced by teachers and how to resolve them

·        Examples of best practice technology use in early childhood settings, primary and secondary classrooms

·        A future-proofed approach focusing on theory-informed best practice in an ever-changing world of devices and software

Essential reading for pre-service teacher education students in both primary and secondary education courses on undergraduate and postgraduate routes into teaching and for qualified teachers looking to deepen their professional knowledge.

Clearly presented with references at the end of each chapter, as well as further reading material to support student progression. Clear links to classroom practice and theory, enabling students to explore key topics in their own settings.
