Website Rationale

Welcome to our website which explores the extent to which an integrated approach to the teaching of I.C.T. can enhance the learning process and motivation of primary school pupils across all subjects of the curriculum.

This project aimed to provide one laptop between every four pupils so as to ensure quality access for all pupils. Laptop computers were selected for their portability particularly in the classroom situation.

It was hoped that through the findings of this project, primary school teachers would be encouraged to explore the uses of content-free software including word processing, multimedia packages (e.g. Powerpoint and Hyperstudio ) and internet and e-mail access, thus enabling them to more fully integrate ICT into all aspects of classroom work.
