Primary Special Needs - Using ICT

Description

Yvonne Seymour from Cape Primary School is a self-confessed ICT novice. It was a subject she struggled with during teacher training and a subject in which she seriously lacked confidence.

Yet one of her ideas on how to use ICT for special educational needs pupils within a mixed ability class is now hailed as an excellent example of good practice. This programme looks at her idea, how she developed it and how any teacher with even the most basic of ICT skills could use it.

Yvonne's Year 3 class are taught to produce their own e-book, or electronic storybook, using very basic presentational software. They can adapt various techniques, like typing, recording sound, selecting pictures and scanning to their own abilities.

They can also work in pairs or mixed ability groups where the more able can support the less able. Producing an e-book allows every child in the class to participate in ICT and the fact that they become authors and illustrators promotes real ownership of their work.
