If you had a pound for every time you were asked this question by a student or a parent you could probably retire from teaching (now there is a thought!) How many times have you wished that you had a set of snappy, ready made answers to such a question?
How about when you have to put together a presentation for Year 9 Options Evening or Sixth Form Open Evening? I know I have scratched my head in the past trying to come up with a set of persuasive statements that will imbue my passion for ICT to my students.
Thanks to a collaborative effort from a number of excellent teachers using Twitter we have been able to collate their answers and put together a set of statements that should help you when next faced with the question, ‘Why should I take ICT?’
