Course Outline Using Prezi


Welcome to Lucy and Diarmid's ICT Tips and Tricks in Literacy and English Language 2009. Diarmid is at Dalguise Outdoor Education Centre, so Sharon has kindly offered to assist.

Our intention is to present you with some tips and tricks that work for us with pupils and staff.

Success Criteria
We will be very pleased if even a few of the ideas here catch your imagination and are taken back to your own school and children.

We also hope that you will consider accessing this blog later and adding your own tips and tricks.

Please feel welcome to browse through this wonderful, expansive cross-curricular P6-S2 resource, available in Smart, Promethean, PowerPoint and pdf formats. It marries very well with Curriculum for Excellence.



Try this new collaborative storytelling site. Read stories published online and make your own visual storybooks for sharing. Beautiful, large drag and drop images and easy-to-read type; ideal for young children.


Take the tour to find out how to use this fabulous site.


Infant Video Toolkit is software we use with pupils from P1-P7 and at around £425 for a site licence is the single best investment in a piece of software we have ever made. It is called Infant Video Toolkit because it contains step-by-step video animations which can instruct pupils as well as staff.


Poisson Rouge is a fabulous, beautifully designed site which we use with Primary One from September onwards. Easy to manage in the ICT Suite and a great way to engage a whole class of young pupils early doors.


An exciting product for Early Years is Storyphones: a digital audio system where each headset is an individual MP3 player, competely free of wires.


The latest Coomber audio equipment is also worth investigating (across all sectors). Now products have facilities to record onto CD Rom rather than audio cassette and can connect to microphones.
