Raising Attainment in Reading through Effective Use of Technology - 8 Oct

The Curriculum Innovation Team are hosting this full day course at the Innovation Centre Bradford. By attending this course teachers will be able to use a variety of technologies confidently and appropriately to improve engagement, develop personalised learning and raise attainment in reading.

During this course there will be the opportunity to:

Examine a range of software, apps and devices that can be used to support reading and specifically phonics. Create digital reading records that can be shared with peers and parents. Investigate ways mobile technology can be used to engage and improve comprehension skills in individual and group reading activities. Explore a range of digital texts (including film clips) and how some simple techniques and technologies can be used to develop the ability to infer and deduce. Create our own audio books and online book reviews to share or co-produce with others. Understand how to create simple 'how to' videos that model reading strategies and techniques to share with parents and carers. Be able to dissect a digital text to demonstrate specific elements of a text using an IWB or tablet. Record 'hot seating' character activities using video. Create recordings of recitals and enhance these through performance poetry videos that can be shared with others. Explore how pupil 'Digital Leaders' can support the effective use of technology across the school to raise attainment in reading.
