BT provides free resources for both Primary and Secondary learning.
Learning and Teaching Resources
BT provides plenty of free resources to support teachers, parents and carers in developing children’s ability to communicate effectively. The materials have been developed by educators and teachers. This site is great for Key Stage 2 ICT lessons, teachers and pupils.
Internet and Skills
There are resources on using the internet and encouraging children to use their skills to teach older people and make a contribution to the wider community. An online challenge can be accessed to develop listening and memory skills. The ‘Communication Cookbook’ provides activities for developing essential communication skills, which are supported by online games for children to access.
History of Communication
Teachers can also find resources for teaching about the history of communication and ideas on the discussion points this raises. This is a good way of encouraging children to see how our digital communications developed.
Exploring and Staying Safe
Staying safe online is always an important issue when using the internet and BT provide resources to develop children’s sense of e-safety.
It is really worth exploring the other resources featured on the website as many focus on communication skills in a wide range of contexts. They focus not only on digital communication, but the face-to-face skills needed. This is important today as so much communication is done by electronic means.
