Online training and lesson ideas for using iPads effectively
The training Hub has been developed for schools that want to ensure students and teachers benefit from structured, personal and anytime access to up to date training resources. The material contains creative ideas, supports awareness and professional development.
The Hub facilitates an all year round, anytime, anywhere approach to developing teachers confidence, capabilities and skills, using iPads professionally.
Historically trainers visit schools once a year, deliver twilight sessions, demonstrate apps, ideas and workflows and in just two hours, teachers are expected to develop confidence and ideas to last a year. For most this is not effective CPD.
During the course of the year there will have been software updates, new apps and many developments. The Hub provides a relevant and time efficient, structured service for teachers to keep ahead of the curve.
Digital learning for all
Maintaining a consistent level of understanding for both students and teachers when using apps and workflows, can be challenging. Teachers don’t have the time or maybe the experience to teach iPad as well as their subject.
The professionally produced training videos and lesson ideas have been developed for schools that need to ensure their iPad investment is being used in a meaningful way, to support the curriculum for students both at school and at home.
Ensuring technology has impact in both school and home
iPad is a fantastic tool for online research, but it can do much more to develop independent and creative learners at both school and home.
- Encouraging content creation, rather than content consumption.
- Sharing a variety of materials with students
- Effective feedback for students
- Understanding the potential of iPad workflows
- Assessment tools
