I recently completed the iPads in the classroom course. It was a great course and now feel much more equipped to use iPads in the classroom. Before this course I was not aware of many of these apps and the best way of using this technology effectively. I would recommend it to other teachers and parents of children of in primary school today, as it is a good course for people with a bit of technical knowledge.
The course was fantastic. Thoroughly enjoyed the practical components of the course. Having the opportunity to put together lessons using a variety of apps was extremely useful.
This course was excellent. I good refresher but also I learnt a new data and strategies to support students with Autism.
In particular I gained a lot out of the TED talk and other clips where someone with Autism shared what it’s like to be Autistic.
Finally I found it VERY interesting about girls with Autism and how they differ from boys and why often it is not identified as early as boys. I found this very fascinating.
I would and have recommended this course to my colleagues.
I have taken from your course some really great ideas and look forward to putting them into practice in 2017. I found the videos particularly interesting and moving.
The course content is very useful in describing what behaviour is and how best to manage that behaviour. It is important to understand how your students tick and why they might be behaving badly. The strategies to manage behaviour are explained very clearly and the modules are excellent for thinking about the classroom environment and how to use positive reinforcement.
Overall the course covered the material I wanted to see, and having an experienced practitioner like Karin take the course was invaluable.
This course was beneficial as it provided numerous websites, links and current research into Autism and promoted the need to accommodate students with Autism in the mainstream classroom setting.
I discovered so many useful applications that were engaging for students in the secondary classroom. It allowed me to embrace technology and become more confident with the use of devices. The convenor always replied promptly and the open learning site was easy to navigate.
The course was very interesting, I didn’t know what QR codes where before this course. It provided me with the information to use and create them.They are a great resource in the classroom, for assessment tasks and other classroom activities.
his course was a great course for increasing understanding of autism, as well as for thinking through helpful strategies and ideas for best teaching practices for teachers with students with autism in their classes.
Another fantastic course by Karen and her team. I learned how to create QR codes and gained many different ideas on how to use them in the classroom. Thank you!
The content of the course in incorporating these ipad apps into the classroom was very beneficial and has given me an edge with teaching techniques in my subjects.
Excellent content and very relevant to today’s generation; essential information for teachers of today’s students. Karina is also a great facilitator and offers frequent guidance and feedback.
Very useful for gaining better insight into the autistic student’s world. Incredible wealth of resources available here for teachers teaching in this field. I learnt about apps I could never have had the time to find myself.
Was an interesting course with some useful tips for a classroom. Not as many as I hoped though.
The course is excellent and useful. The course combines the strategies on how to use Social Media as educational tools and how to use them safely. Therefore, teachers
Are more confident to use Social Media in the teaching and learning process.
I found this course to be very informative and engaging. I highly recommend it.
I encourage teachers to complete this course as it all about the changing world when in comes to technology in the classroom and Social Media. It covered not only how students use Social Media, but also our uses and how important it is to develop a positive digital footprint. I had so much fun completing this course! Thank you to Karen Barley and her team!
