ICT across the curriculum: Geography

This section provides guidance on how ICT can be used effectively to support interactive whole class teaching during Geography lessons.

ICT can give access to images of people, places and environments, aid geographical enquiry and improve the quality of interactions and extend the range of resources that can be used during whole class teaching. ICT enables the teacher to increase the pace of the lesson when appropriate and can help redress the balance in making resources and planning for teaching.

It is important to note however that ICT should only be used when it contributes to the interactive teaching of geography. The use of ICT is not appropriate for all geography teaching – geographical enquiry outside the classroom, collecting and recording evidence and many other established ways of teaching remain of vital importance. ICT can provide a medium through which children can present, review and evaluate the enquiry which has taken place outside the classroom
