Software and guidance: Interactive Teaching Programs

The Interactive Teaching Programs have been developed to support teaching in the daily mathematics lessons and literacy hour. Interactive Teaching Programs support the use of ICT as a whole class-teaching tool they will therefore be of most benefit to teachers who have an interactive whiteboard or a large screen monitor.

When using this technology the emphasis is on effective whole class strategies, including teacher modelling, exposition and demonstration, prompting, probing and promoting questioning, class discussions managed by the teacher, and bringing the class together to reinforce key points emerging from individual and group work. Using Interactive Teaching Programs in your lessons will enable you to:

  • Improve the quality of interactions between teacher and pupil
  • Improve teacher assessment through the promotion of effective questioning
  • Enhance the use of demonstration and modelling
  • Shift the focus from making resources to planning for teaching
  • Increase the pace of learning and raise expectations

Each Interactive Teaching Program contains an information icon. The information icon allows you to discover the functions within the program by moving the mouse over the items on screen. Each Interactive Teaching Program is accompanied by a tutorial which gives further guidance on how these ITPs can be manipulated. It offers some ideas on how they can be used to enhance teaching and learning in the daily mathematics lesson and literacy hour.
