Information and communication technologies, commonly known as ICT, are increasingly present in the classroom. They will be even more so with the proliferation of interactive whiteboards in schools. Chenelière Éducation has therefore just launched two volumes intended for teachers who are connected… or in the process of being!

The first, Primary school TBI, aims to support teachers in the use of their interactive whiteboard on a daily basis. “No device in the world, however wonderful, can improve a teacher's skills on its own,” warns author Jenny Gage in the introduction. The TBI is nothing more than a tool that, if used properly, can make teaching a lot easier. However, a less relevant lesson will remain if the TBI is used inappropriately. In the hands of a good teacher, the IWB can make lessons stimulating, interactive and rhythmic in a way that interests students while providing them with memorable experiences. "

This is an interesting book to tame this new technology since it starts at the base with information about what a IWB is, the different types that exist, how this tool can improve teaching and applications in education. Then, it goes more to the practical aspect, that is to say its use as such, then it offers activities, mainly in French and in mathematics.

Reading and writing

The second, Reading and writing in the age of ICT, is interested, as its name suggests, in the place of technologies in reading and writing. “Teachers prepare their students for the future. They give them the opportunity to develop skills that will be essential for them to succeed in their studies and enter the job market. However, these skills are evolving. It will no longer be enough for pupils to know how to read and write; they will have to read, write, analyze, create, discover, learn and relearn on a daily basis. They will need to examine the world they live in, connect with others, and apply their knowledge to new and innovative contexts, ”notes author Lisa Donohue in her introduction.

The book is well popularized and does not lose the reader in technical details. The book offers many activities to be carried out using technology: blogs, wikis, chat rooms, podcasts, Twitter, etc. It also shares teachers' experiences, student comments, numerous links and reproducible cards.
