Introduction

The projects do not provide an exhaustive or definitive list of ICT opportunities in the humanities. Instead, they are tried and tested sequences of activities, adaptable across the age-range, which ensure that high quality learning in ICT is accompanied by high quality learning in a subject context. The projects are closely linked to relevant units in the Qualifications and Curriculum Authority (QCA) schemes of work for geography, history and religious education. They could be used to supplement, augment, extend or replace units in the ICT scheme of work. Although the projects are not future-proof, they have been designed to take advantage of some of the latest technologies now available in primary schools, such as interactive whiteboards, internet-linked computers and digital cameras.
