This management guide is part of a training pack, which also includes a series of subject-specific guides accompanied by CD-ROMs and posters. The full pack can be ordered as DfES 0171 2004G.

The guidance forms part of the Key Stage 3 National Strategy’s support for whole-school improvement. It looks at the relationship between the teaching of national curriculum ICT and the use of ICT in other subjects, and how this can be mutually supportive in developing pupils’ capabilities to use ICT effectively in their learning.

The document examines the opportunities in the curriculum to develop these capabilities and considers the implications this has for senior leadership teams when developing whole-school approaches to ICT.

It suggests ways to best manage ICT resources, and pupils' ICT experiences, offering examples of how to do this.

Along with the other resources in the pack, this guide offers a suite of materials to support professional development in ICT across the curriculum. A series of discussion points gives guidance in mapping a way forward for effectively managing the teaching of ICT across the curriculum.

The appendices summarise the four themes that the national curriculum groups the study of ICT around, listing the teaching objectives for each theme.

Note that the CD-ROM accompanying this guide is currently available only by ordering the complete pack.
