Engage students with easy-to-use, online tools that bring learning to life in any subject.
At the end of this course you will have learned a variety of easy-to-use software that can be flexibly integrated with any curriculum subject. When used properly, technology will be your digital pencil and paper that can be used for any curriculum priority. The difference with a digital pencil and paper is that it has been proven to increase engagement levels while providing students with opportunities for learning that are otherwise impossible. Above all, these lessons are fun for students, fun for teachers, support behaviour management, increase engagement and extend learning opportunities.
Participants will need to have access to a smart phone, laptop or tablet. Options for submitting your course work are as flexible as creating a presentation about the content – lack of access to specific technology at home isn’t, and shouldn’t, be a barrier to accessing training.
Approximately 20 hours
Each module includes hands-on activities providing participants with fun opportunities to practise the basic skills. These activities will be shared with the course e-tutor as a key part of your assessment.
Participants will keep a reflective journal and engage in a discussion forum with peers and their e-tutor. They will use the notes from the journal and their discussions to evaluate their school’s use of digital technologies and create some basic plans for where the skills learned during this course will be implemented in the school in the coming school year.
