Switched on Computing: Take Your First Easy Steps with Microsoft has been written to help schools get started with computing at Key Stages 1 and 2. Each unit has clear guidance for teachers and plenty of creative ideas for bringing each project alive in the classroom.
Author and ICT Co-ordinator, Claire Lotriet, trialled the units with her pupils.
“I think it’s brilliant that a huge company like Microsoft and a creative publisher like Rising Stars have come together to help schools like this. We have been trialling the final materials for a few weeks now – children love them. Not only are they introducing children to computing but they are helping them develop broader skills, such as use of technology for literacy, and collaboration”.
