Course description

You will be able to:

- develop awareness of ICT resources available to support the KS1 maths and English curriculum
- gain ‘hands on’ experiences of ICT hardware and software that can be used to support learning
- cross reference schemes of work to see the influence that ICT can have on current planning.

We will begin the two-days by looking at the equipment and software that is available to support learning in school. Over the first day, we will look at the planning of your own curriculum and how ICT can be used to enhance it. The second day will take a more ‘hands on’ approach to discovering the uses of ICT. Using a combination of mobile devices, online content, hardware and software we will discover a range of ICT activities that can be used to strategically enhance your maths and English lessons. For example:
- sharing online content through QR codes
- using a green screen for filming
- using ICT to capture and snapshot learning
- developing speaking and listening through ICT
- using programming to support the delivery of geometry
- finding and using maths specific online content and software effectively
