Using Information and Communications Technology across the curriculum 

Information and Communications Technology across the curriculum has the potential to transform and enrich children’s learning experiences and environments. It can empower children, develop self-esteem and promote positive attitudes to learning. Additionally, the creative use of ICT has the potential to improve children’ thinking skills, providing them with opportunities to become independent, self-motivated and flexible learners. Children will develop the skills of Using ICT by engaging in meaningful research and purposeful activities set in relevant contexts. They will use ICT to handle and communicate information, solve problems, pose questions and take risks. They will process, present and exchange their ideas and translate their thinking into creative outcomes that show an awareness of audience and purpose.
