Using Tablets and Online Tools for Literacy and Numeracy

This innovative PDST TiE summer course centres on the effective use of tablet technologies, namely the iPad, in enhancing teaching, learning and assessment in the Irish classroom.

This course offers teachers a range of practical approaches to employ when utilising tablet technology to best effect in their classrooms. To this end, key content in this course will address how the effective use of tablets can enhance pupil engagement when undertaking literacy and numeracy lessons, as well as in a cross-curricular fashion. Importantly, this course also aims to provide teachers with insights relating to key educational and whole-school considerations in the deployment of tablet technologies through a range of participant-oriented tasks and activities.

Other important key areas of course content to be discussed also includes digital citizenship and internet safety, finding and selecting good quality digital content online, developing whole school assessment practices through the use of ePortfolios and other methods and exploring the newly constructed Digital Learning Framework and how a school may go about creating their digital learning plan in this regard.

Note: Participants must bring their own or school ipad, and must know the App ID login details/app store. A list of Apps needed for the course will be given in advance for participants to download.
