ICT in Food Technology In-service Training

  • Roy Ballam British Nutrition Foundation


This article is an abridged version of an assignment submitted for an MA Module in ICT in Education in 1998. As part of a drive to introduce and make ICT an intrinsic element of classroom teaching in food technology, three in-service sessions were organised and delivered in collaboration with any inspector for design and technology in a Local Education Authority (LEA). The rationale for the in-service was to address key issues identified on inspections concerning the use, or apparent lack of ICT, in many material areas of design and technology. These included computer anxiety, resistance to ICT and making ICT relevant to the curriculum area.
