This years ISTC meeting for Religious Studies was held on
Tuesday 25th. January, 2000 at Oundle School. The theme of this years meeting was RE
and ICT. The day aimed to provide a beginners guide to using the Internet
as a resource for both teachers and pupils in religious education. The day was not aimed
at experts, rather the focus was on learning ICT skills and encountering useful resources
for the teaching of religious education. The day was led by Douglas Butler,
who has run conferences on ICT and how it may be used in many subjects of the curriculum
all around the world and Mark Steed, from Oundle School.
Session One led by Douglas Butler focussed on ICT skills - using the internet, getting material from the internet into a form that can be used in the classroom, and some of the more advanced features of Microsoft Word. Douglas' website address is http://www.argonet.co.uk/oundlesch/

Session Three led by Douglas Butler was a practical one in the Computer labs using the internet - completing some structured tasks using the internet.
