      Dear Robert

      Here are some activities that might be of interest. I have been using ICT with young learners and teenagers for some time and a have been involved in teacher training (online). The emphasis was on teachers developing their own skills in order to design material for the classroom. I hope to produce a website at some point - when I have time!

      Software for mind mapping, planning and organising writing

      Use of Word prediction
      Use of Word banks

      2: Making a talking book to support listening and reading
      3: Making interactive activities to exploit a talking book
      4: Making multimedia for projects and topic work
      5: Children create their own talking book using Hyperstudio
      6: Using PowerPoint with a data projector to produce an electronic big book.

      14. Introducing children to sending e-cards
      15: Using a digital video camera / digital photographs in the classroom
      16: Taking part in a European project
      17: Design a professional worksheet using Publisher
      18: Evaluate a program
      19: Website evaluation
      20: Using word processors effectively ( includes simple word processors designed for young learners.)
      21: Using Storybook Weaver and other simple DTP programs
      22: Designing a scheme of work for using ICT in the classroom.
      23: Types of assessment that can be considered when using ICT in ELT
