Teaching Design And Technology At Key Stages 1 And 2 from the Author: Gill Hope. Ofsted continues to identify weaknesses in this subject, while many primary, non-specialist trainees lack confidence in the area. Linked to the new (2007) Standards for QTS and the DATA Tier 1 competencies, this book is for trainees who have had less than 20 hours training in design and technology but are required to teach the subject during school placements and once qualified. This clear, jargon-free text explains the key concepts and curriculum requirements, without assuming prior expertise or advanced levels of understanding, making this book a sound basic introduction.

The Impact Of Ict On Teaching In Design And Technology At Key Stage Two from the Author: Graham Morley. This thesis investigates the impact of computers and interactive whiteboards on the teaching of Design and Technology in Key Stage 2. Their use within education is having an influence upon the curriculum. Various investigations into the impact of Information and Communication Technology have been undertaken but these have principally involved CAD and CAM work within Key Stages 3 and 4 Design and Technology. Very few studies have looked at Design and Technology in the earlier key stages or the impact upon teaching and pupils at Key Stages 1 and 2. The literature review focuses on four key areas surrounding the research investigation: Computer Aided Learning; Cognition regarding the relationship of problem solving and higher level thinking; Pedagogy and its relationship to the use of computers in the teaching of Design and Technology and a review of the Design and Technology guidelines and the related issues regarding their implementation. The research is based upon both qualitative and quantitative methodologies employing multiple sources of data collection. Quantitative data was collected through a survey of all primary schools in two Yorkshire Local Authorities. The qualitative data produced the basis for in-depth individual semi-structured interviews with a sample of Design and Technology Co-ordinators. The semi-structured interviews then formed the foundation for a focus group interview of Local Authority officers. Use has been made of an evidence trail which examines other sources of evidence such as conference papers, HMI, QCA, Ofsted and DfES reports. The main findings indicate that the core subjects of the National Curriculum are taking the vast majority of teaching time. A broad and balanced curriculum is therefore no longer being maintained in the schools studied. The evidence revealed that teachers were becoming familiar with the use of computers in the classroom. They understood the skills involved in using computers but were still uncertain as to the most suitable pedagogy. The majority of teachers who responded to the questionnaire and the semi-structured interviews, the Local Authority officers and some government departments regard the New Opportunities Funded (NOF) training as being a disappointment due to its over-ambitious aims and lack of pedagogical content. The introduction of interactive whiteboards (IWB) was initially viewed by teachers as another element of ICT to teach. However these have now been well received. Those teachers involved in the study are finding it difficult to find time to either keep pace with or develop their ICT skills. This is reflected in teachers? limited use of computer programs. This is in direct conflict with the findings of Ofsted, which found that teachers were now using a broader range of programs. Please note that the term Local Education Authority no longer exists as a statutory body. Throughout this thesis the term Local Authority is used instead.

Safety Across The Curriculum from the Author: Carole Raymond. Litigation and alleged cases of educational malpractice are on the rise. Headteachers and governors are more aware of legal requirements, but this new book addresses the needs of teachers. The book introduces a framework for safe practice, then the 'high risk' subjects of Science, ICT, Design and Technology, and PE and outdoor activities in separate chapters. The implications for classroom practice of recent legal developments are examined, and three more chapters look at what can be expected in the process of litigation. Sound advice for those wishing to make schools safer, and useful guidance for those having to deal with the aftermath of a safety problem.

Developing A Leadership Role Within The Key Stage 2 Curriculum from the Author: Mike Harrison. Since 1989 initial teacher training courses in England and Wales have included teacher preparation for taking a lead in a school subject area in their first appointment. There is no longer a place for a teacher newly qualified or not in primary schools whose sole responsibility is for his or her own class. A teacher must have specific specialist knowledge and expertise in particular subjects which must be shared with all staff.; This text contains the latest curriculum and assessment changes. It aims to help students and newly qualified teachers to understand the complexities of being a co-ordinator of a National Curriculum subject in Key Stage 2 and reports on best practice.
