Teaching encourages pupils to use ICT to develop and improve their work and enhance its presentation
Teaching supports pupils in developing the capability to use the new technologies both effectively and to their full potential
Teaching involves ICT use to inspire pupils’ creativity, allowing them to explore the possibilities of any or all of the multi-media tools available
