Description

This hands on free training will give teachers an insight into how they can use the iPad in their classroom across the core curriculum areas of Literacy, Numeracy, W.A.U. and also an in depth look at how coding can be developed across the school with the iPad.

There will be a valuable session in the day looking at how effective learning opportunities can be embedded in teachers' short and medium term planners.

Beginning with tea and coffee and also including a lunchbreak with refreshements provided, the day will be split into the following sessions.

9:15am - 9:45am: Arrival, tea and coffee.

9:45am - 11am: The iPad in Literacy.

This session will look at how teachers can use the iPad to teach areas within Literacy such as Comprehension, Writing, Reading and Spelling. Teachers will explore how the iPad can be used to inspire pupils in amazing lesson openers and plenaries, group work and individual work. Teachers will also get hands on with assesment using the iPad.

11am - 12:30pm: The iPad in Numeracy.

The iPad can be used in amazing ways within Numeracy and in this part of the day teachers will look at not only how it can be used as a teaching tool, but how pupils can use the iPad to document their learning and explain their knowledge of new concepts they have explored. Teachers will also get hands on with some excellent apps that can be used to teach concepts to pupils from Foundation Stage to KS2.

12:30pm: 1:15pm: Lunch.

1:15pm - 2:15pm: iPads in planners.

A very important session that will give teachers the opportunity to identify how they can embed excellent learning opportunities in their classroom by including them in a structured way within their planners. The morning activities will hopefully inspire teachers with ideas of tasks and activities that they can implement in the classroom from September to Christmas.

2:15pm - 4pm: Coding in the classroom with iPads.

Coding, coding coding! That's all we have heard about over the last 2 years! This amazing hands on session will give teachers the opportunity to better understand how coding fits perfectly into the curriculum from Foundation Stage to KS2. Teachers will get the chance to explore some excellent coding apps that develop problem solving and computational thinking skills. A real highlight of the day will be when teachers get the chance to program robots with the iPad!

4pm - 4:15pm: Wrap up and Close.
