Have you ever felt that you are being asked to use IT just for the sake of it?
Have you ever attended IT training sessions which went far too fast and where you soon lost the thread?
Was time built in to allow for practice and were questions welcomed - or were you maybe left you too nervous to ask them in the first place?
This course will squarely redress that imbalance. It is aimed at what I believe to be the silent majority: those teachers who would happily engage with IT, if only it were explained simply, saved time, and was applied when appropriate. Oh, and questions are very much encouraged, and plenty of time will be allocated to hands-on practice.
PLEASE NOTE: For venue-based course, delegates must bring EITHER an iPad (android devices also fine) OR a laptop. Bringing both would be a bonus, but not essential. Please try to ensure that your devices are fully charged - there may be opportunities to recharge, but we cannot guarantee this.
