Some reviews of 'Brilliant Ideas...'

'Brilliant ideas is a book of two halves. The first part gives examples from practice of the use of ICT in the widest sense – Satnavs, dance mats, and games consoles sit alongside more conventional equipment such as interactive whiteboards and laptops … Part two gives brief overviews of a host of resources, with ideas to start using them. Like the first section there is a mixture of resources we might recognise, and some that could be new to the reader.' John Galloway Brilliant ideas and teachers make for a potent mix.

"I am sure that there will be new ideas here for even the most tech-savvy teachers. It is gratifying to note that most of the technologies showcased in the book are either free or available at a reasonable cost." Teaching and Learning with Technology

"Sally McKeown and Angela McGlashon have produced a book that will be an excellent resource for lesson ideas for busy teachers who want an effective way of using ICT to provide ways for all children to be included in the learning environment of the class.
Judith Stansfield BDA NTC (Associate)

"If you're looking for inspiration on how to integrate creative uses of ICT with the curriculum, this book will prove invaluable."
The Book Depository

"Some of Education Today’s favourite suggested ICT uses include the chance for young people to experience life as a museum curator using a specialised free website (p6), and the idea of using a Tom Tom to make sense of the world (p48). This particular case study shows how a group of young people with learning difficulties, including Aspergers syndrome, autism and Downs syndrome used a sat-nav to improve their communication skills and explore their local community using maps." Education Today

"The brilliant ideas are presented in the form of short (one or two pages) case studies, illustrating how they have been used in schools throughout the UK. Many teachers will already be using some of the approaches described in the book, but there is sure to be something new for everybody." Allan Wilson, CALL Scotland

"The book focuses on students with a disability, provides effective techniques for enhancing learning outcomes and increasing engagement and motivational levels in students." International Journal of Disability, Development and Education

"Brilliant Ideas for Using ICT in the Inclusive Classroom” is an excellent guide to using ICT in the SEN classroom,but has lots of ideas for teachers in mainstream schools tool." WhiteboardBlog

"This no-nonsense guide to using ICT to enhance the learning of children with additional needs will make lessons more accessible and learners more engaged and motivated." wheelers.co.nz
