Using ICT Teaching and Learning Units

Using ICT Teaching and Learning Units

CCEA has created the following teaching and learning units in response to teacher requests for guidance on how to approach the teaching of each type of ICT (as set out in the Desirable Features). Each resource has a separate section for each key stage:

  • Foundation Stage - Exploring;
  • Key Stage 1 – Exploring with Purpose; and
  • Key Stage 2 – Exploring with Purpose and Control.

If pupils have not had any prior experience, teachers may find it useful to look at the activities in the earlier key stages.

Each key stage section is set out in Steps so to guide teachers through the structure recommended as best practice when teaching the type of ICT.

The resources have been written to take account of curriculum content in other Areas of Learning as well as ICT, so that teachers can plan across the curriculum.

What are the Teaching and Learning Units?

CCEA have developed the Teaching and Learning Units in partnership with Nerve Belfast. Watch to see what teachers, CCEA and Nerve have to say about the resources.
