About this course

This engaging, practical course will help teachers and learners unlock the potential of iPads and explore how they can be integrated seamlessly into the curriculum as teaching and learning tools to aid learners with SEN. It will also show you how the iPad can develop the individual needs of each SEN learner by addressing their specific needs as well as raising levels of confidence, self-esteem and curriculum standards.

This course will provide you with an extensive toolkit of free and affordable apps that are suitable for teaching learners with SEN and communicate effectively their impact on learning needs. We will also look at a selection of apps that allow learners to communicate clearly and enable you to develop inclusive and differentiated resources.

WHY CHOOSE THIS COURSE?

“Absolutely brilliant! I started off completely lacking in knowledge in how to use the iPad. I have learnt so much, more than just the basics and such useful information/use of apps to support children in my care. Inspiring!”
