    Abstract

    Due to the increasing demand for an IT (Information Technology) literate workforce and the potential for IT to enrich learning, ICT (Information, Communication and Technology) is used in schools to support learning and teaching across various subject areas and as a subject in its own right. Although IT has been used to support the delivery of other subjects in primary schools it has not been used effectively to support the delivery of ICT itself. This research considers how IT may be used more effectively in this context, in primary schools in the UK and Saudi Arabia, and whether a user centred approach to its design may result in more effective teaching and learning material.
