Sessions

Beginning with the end in mind

30 minutes

In this session, we will focus on the learning traits and dispositions we are looking to develop in our learners. Building a profile of the type of learner will allow us to design pedagogy to suit as well as allow us to distinguish the various roles the learner and teacher will play throughout the unit.

Making the web work for you

1 hour

In this session we will look at how we read on the web. We will then utilize the power of the browser with Chrome extensions to declutter the web and to make it work for you. This will include being able to easily find what you are looking for through advanced search techniques, capturing key information by sticky noting the web and having the web read to you.

Developing good digital habits

1 hour

Learn how to manage distractions and build high levels of focus and flow through binaural beats. Use techniques such as monotasking and timeboxing to focus your attention and lift your productivity. Learn how Trello, Kanban and the Pomodoro technique can help you and your students focus and work productively.

Feedback and Synthesis

1 hour

Capture the thinking of all of your students, not just those with the most to say. Use applications like Verso, Poll Everywhere and Socrative to capture feedback or have students demonstrate understanding.

Towards true collaboration

1 hour

Use learning applications such as OneNote and the GSuite to scaffold to learners how to collaborate effectively.

Fake it till you create it - bluffing your way to creativity

1 hour

Harness the power of learning applications such as Canva and TouchCast to make your digital creations look world class. Create everything from a logo to a presentation to an interactive video.

Very well structured, good information and skills development. The information and skills gained will be quite useful, especially for me as an IT teacher.

Many parts were highly relevant, particularly the Chrome extensions, with Read & Write being the highlight. Will definitely be used to help students requiring extra support with reading and writing.

Very relevant to me as it provided info on important apps to use in education. The presenter has put in a great deal of work. I just wish he shows more basic things when introducing apps. At times I was stuck when I tried to use some of the apps.

relevant and appropriate content for my classroom and it really opened my eyes to how I can present content in lessons

A lot of the content was information or tools that I already use or have access to within my school. Whilst there was some great tips and applications to add, which I found helpful. Other parts I found a little redundant for myself as I already have access to tools, which do or perform a similar function.

The course was both enjoyable and very beneficial for my teaching. I would rate this course as excellent and will be recommending it to my colleagues?. The course structure was great.

The demonstrations, tutorials and activities were very thorough. I feel the course went further than just showing ICT tools that can be used, they made me think about how I could effectively utilise them within my teaching. I appreciate the work put into setting this course up, it was very user friendly and beneficial.

The course was highly informative and explained to me how to use extensions to help navigate and use the web.
I would rate the course as excellent.The online delivery suited me as it means I didn’t have to leave work to complete it.
