2020 and 2021 were the years our understanding of distance/online learning changed forever, with educators at all levels suddenly forced to embrace teaching from afar. Whether you thrived in the world of online learning, or wished you knew more about the tools available to you, this is the course for you.
This is a course suitable for all levels: whether you're looking to discover new tools for class or online engagement, or to consolidate your command of the options already out there, you'll find plenty to help you prepare for the post-Covid world of digital tuition - from the classroom and afar.
The course aims to broaden teachers’ knowledge of content and methodologies that pertain to the primary school in relation to the following areas:
- Use of digital technologies to enhance and support literacy practice
- Use of digital technologies to enhance and support numeracy practice and assessment
- Use of digital technologies to enhance and support primary school leadership
- Computational Thinking in the primary classroom
- The Digital Learning Framework to enhance and support digital technologies
Participants will engage with a carefully chosen selection of resources that broaden their perspective, and provide suggestions that can be taken back to the classroom to enhance digital technologies in the classroom. They will be invited to consider the implications of the Digital Learning Framework, arming teachers with the capacity, confidence and technological self-efficacy required to lead/assist with a particular aspect of the school’s current and/or future SSE cycle(s) in digital learning
The course you wish you took last year!
Testimonials from 2020:
This was an excellent course on the benefits of using digital technologies when teaching, leading or managing schools. The modules were clearly structured. This course have given me the confidence to dive into this, this is an area where I would haven't been very confident with. I now also have a fantastic list of resource to share with my staff which will benefit all.
As a school principal, I found this course gave me a great overview into the different resources that are available to teachers and how we, as a school, can engage with digital technologies in a more meaningful way.
The course has provided a wealth of resources for every class level and will be a great tool to showcase the merits of digital teaching and learning. The wealth of support materials, tutorial videos provided throughout this course definitely helped increase my confidence in using these technologies.
