This course was invaluable for learning and sharing new digital pedagogies for use in classroom learning. I acquired many useful resources, both directly through the course and also by sharing with other teachers, that have since been used in the classroom. It has assisted student learning and increased student engagement.

I have just completed the TTA course ‘ Using Digital Pedagogy Effectively in the Science Classroom’.
I found this course to be relevant to my needs and the online delivery comfortable within my limited study-time opportunities.
I would rate the course as excellent, now that I am at the end of my 100 hours for NESA, I would rank this course as having been my most useful.
I fully intend to implement the strategies and techniques covered in this course.

The course was excellent. It provided me with an understanding of a range of different digital tools that I can use to engage students and I was able to exchange ideas and discuss the use of different strategies with other Science teachers. James (course facilitator) is passionate about technology use in Science & very supportive of course participants' ideas.

by Carolyn Thomas on 05/04/2017

I found the course very useful. In particular I really enjoyed being introduced to some new digital tools I had not used before and seeing how others have used them in their lessons to give me ideas as to how I may be able to incorporate them into my lessons. It was definitely a very useful, worthwhile course.

The course offers some very interesting ways to incorporate digital media into the classroom. I had already used several of the strategies but there were many more that were included and that other participants had used that I had not considered. I have already started to implement these into my lessons.

I found the overall course very informative and useful to my development as a teacher. I have been exposed to different digital platforms and technology that I was previously unaware of.

I would happily recommend this course to anyone that would be interested in doing it.

Thanks must go to both TTA and James for the work they have put in to making this course so enjoyable to complete and for not making the submissions onerous and feeling like it was a burden to work on.
