Authentic Year 7 History Project

Over the past few weeks I have been visiting a local primary school to observe how ICT is being integrated in the classroom. In a previous post I described how students were creating maths quizzes, animated PowerPoint presentations and stop motion animated videos.  Today I would like to explain the planning process the teachers used […]
