Science PowerPoint files (free downloads)
ICT across the curriculum: Science PowerPoint files and SMART and Promethean
IWB files. This section provides guidance on how ICT can be used
effectively to support interactive whole class teaching during Science
lessons. ICT enables the teacher to increase the pace of the lesson when
appropriate and can help redress the balance in making resources and
planning for teaching. ICT allows children to access and interpret up to
date information and to present in a range of formats.

The case studies listed here are the final phase of our Project (April 2004
- August 2004). As we observed lessons, we noted techniques which seemed to
work particularly well and, in some cases, we were able to commission
teachers to share more of their work and ideas with us. Where possible, for
each subject, we have included 'Examples of Good Practice', 'Recommended
Websites' and 'Recommended Software'.

Interactive Whiteboards Resources (Stoke on Trent)
Welcome to the Learning Inter-Action web site primarily aimed at teachers in
Stoke-on-Trent using interactive whiteboards within the LIA project.
Everyone is welcome and we hope that you find the site useful. It's worth
bearing in mind that most IWB resources are great for use with just a
projection screen and data projector (or a large monitor) or even when
working with a small group gathered around an ordinary computer screen.
