50 Starters for #ictcurric
As any sportsman will tell you, starting well is an essential part of succeeding and this is also true in teaching a lesson. But strong, dynamic starters can sometimes be a little tricky in ICT. Hence, I have compiled 50 starters to be used in ICT lessons as they are or adapted to suit your classroom. They are aimed in the first instance at Key Stage 3 but some are equally useful in other key stages.
As this is a starting point for a 'starters resource', I expect growth of the content on this wiki in a true crowdsourcing tradition. I have wherever possible accredited sources and expect the work on here to be respected according to

This idea for this wiki, it's development and content owe a lot to the influence of these folk and materials (in no particular order):
