With clear learning objectives, step-by-step instructions and engaging content, CLISTE's range of Lesson Plans will engage and inspire your classroom.
Lesson Plans are supported by original presentations, printable worksheets and quizzes, all developed especially for the Irish primary school system.
Lesson Plans are logically grouped into Schemes of Work to help you integrate CLISTE into subject areas. Implement CLISTE how and when you want – it's that flexible.
CLISTE's September-to-May Schemes of Work add up to a full year of IT-based discovery and learning based on about one hour of class time per week.
At the heart of CLISTE are its Lesson Plans. Each one:
Some Lesson Plans are complementary, others work best when delivered in order, but more are standalone so you, the teacher, decide how your students can most benefit from CLISTE.
CLISTE presentations, tips and tricks, and topic introductions can be used as reference guides, to create discussion in the classroom or shown as is on a digital whiteboard.
CLISTE resources typically include:
We believe in helping teachers grow in confidence using IT so they in turn can help their students. Included in CLISTE resources are links for further reading and a range of curated, child-safe web links to resources offered by content providers such as RTE and National Geographic.
We appreciate that primary schools have tight time constraints and there are huge demands on teachers to accommodate the existing intensive curriculum. To illustrate CLISTE's flexibility we devised a suggested Yearly Planner that may be used to integrate CLISTE's IT objectives with the teaching of other primary subjects.
The yearly planner's 8 Schemes of Work can be delivered as discrete units based on subject focus, grouped together based on IT area or delivered in order.
Schemes of Work map to Lesson Plans which provide comprehensive instruction to guide teachers along with supporting resources for use in the classroom.
Teachers and schools are free to implement CLISTE in any order. All guidelines are suggestions for applying digital skills, but we recognise that every school, teacher and student is different and that teachers can draw on their experience to pick and choose what is suitable for them.
CLISTE adopts a holistic approach to learning about IT and includes:
|Strand 1:||Learning to use Computers and Devices|
|Strand 2:||Applying Digital Skills to Learning|
|Strand 3:||Being a Digital Citizen|
A teacher or school is free to implement CLISTE as they wish for example:
CLISTE 2014-2015 is just the first step on a journey towards whole-school digital learning.
Lesson Plans, Schemes of Work and supporting resources are aimed at third and fourth class pupils with further years already in development.
