Innovative Teaching and Learning Through Mobile Technology
Thu 18 May 2017, 09:30 – 15:00 BST
We are delighted to be working with Jigsaw24 to bring you this free to attend event, showcasing the use of mobile technology to enhance teaching and learning.
The event is aimed at Senior Leaders, IT/e-learning Co ordinators interested in understanding more about the use of iPads within the classroom. The day will involve a series of workshops and presentations designed to give a real insight into blending technology into learning, and will provide the opportunity to explore the practical application of mobile technology within the school.
Learning Experiences - The Transition from Primary to Secondary
Many primary schools have introduced mobile technology into their classrooms with great success. To ensure that the move to secondary schools is smooth and students are able to utilise the skills developed at primary school and further develop a shared understanding is vital.
We will explore cross phase iPad use, how mobile technology has been embedded in learning and high impact quick wins around high order thinking skills and promoting learning in lessons. Year 7 students will also share their experience of using mobile technology within classrooms and at home.
Managing Devices within the Classroom/Learning Environment
There are times when students can use a class set of iPads for independent learning and research, but other times when focus and coordination are needed to make a lesson work. In this session we will explore Apple's classroom monitoring and guidance tools, Apple Classroom, Apple School Manager and Shared iPad to see how easy it is to take control of a class set in a lesson.
Feedback and Assessment – Paul Ford
As technology is introduced into the classroom to provide exciting ways to demonstrate learning, it’s vital to understand exactly how student evidence created on these devices can be assessed. We will explore some exciting tools to share, assess and provide feedback to students to ensure assessment can take place in the digital world with real lesson examples. These tools not only introduce new ways to provide feedback, engaging learners of all learning styles, but also provide opportunities for cost saving and time management.
