ICT modelling

This training unit is intended to help consultants to plan and manage training for teaching about modelling. Consultants should use the materials flexibly, tailoring training to the experience of participants. The three sessions focus on the theme Developing ideas and making things happen in the National Curriculum programme of study for ICT in Key Stage 3 and on the yearly learning objectives for Models and modelling, as set out in the Framework for secondary ICT.

The three sessions examine the knowledge, skills and understanding associated with the teaching of modelling. They identify what pupils need to do to demonstrate ICT capability when they use models. During the sessions, participants carry out a variety of activities illustrating how to achieve the objectives in the Framework.
