Product reviews for Perfect ICT (Every) Lesson

Hélène Galdin-O'Shea
Mark has written an incredibly useful book, the title of which clearly suggests what it is about; it is not about a -˜one off' ICT lesson but about integrating ICT in meaningful ways in every day lessons to support and extend the pupils' learning. It starts with a clear explanation of the SAMR taxonomy, challenging us to think of ways in which we can truly plan for use of technology that will not merely replicate or substitute what could be achieve in a more traditional way; instead, there are illuminating examples of what our pupils can achieve that would have been impossible before. A strength of the book is its plethora of case studies and concrete examples of tasks, with a strong focus on sound pedagogy. Another strength is its plain language and Avoidance of unnecessary jargon, making it really teacher-friendly.

Mark addresses current debates such as the use of mobile devices in schools, including a look at the BYOD strategy adopted by some schools. You will learn from this book - I certainly did - a sure sign of a great read.
