When working on the computer, it is important that all learners are engaged on task and can see the screen comfortably, therefore no more than three children will work together at one computer.
Learners may share in a computer-led activity where an interactive whiteboard, AV projector is used.
All learners should have planned opportunities to use digital/ICT resources at a level appropriate to their ability.
