About this item

Jumpstart! Literacy and ICT brings together the creative world of language and technology in the bestselling and hugely popular format of the jumpstart series .

This invaluable teacher aid is a collection of fun games and activities that use technology to stimulate imaginative discussion, trigger deep thinking as well as deepening reading and writing. Like the best-selling 'Jumpstart! Literacy', this book contains imaginative 'quick-fire' ideas that can be used as 'warm-ups' and starters or be developed into lessons. There are over a hundred creative and provocative games that capitalise on children's interest in technology, focussing on developing literacy. It includes:

* spelling games;

* sentence gymnastics;

* using images for all types of writing;

* reading games;

* how to begin and develop blogging safely;

* using an authentic global audience to engage pupils.

* ideas for blog posts that will inspire and engage your pupils.

As well as blogging the book will also cover podcasting, vodcasting, wikis, forums, email, tweeting, reviewing books online, sharing images, youtube, animation, films and multimedia presentations. The book will also feature ICT Top 10s throughout and each chapter will would include numerous games and activities. This book will be accompanied by a DVD containing downloadable resources, images, video clips, blog templates, and website links.

Practical, easy-to-do and vastly entertaining, this new ‘Jumpstart!’ brings together Pie Corbett's imaginative approaches to literacy with the powerhouse of David Mitchell's ICT and will appeal to busy teachers in any primary classroom.
