Essential C21st Teaching Skills


Using technology efficiently, effectively and transformationally in any classroom
About this course

This course pairs together one of the leading innovators in education with the most creative and student-friendly device ever. The result: some of the most groundbreaking teacher training on the market. This course will deliver strategies for instant differentiation and provide access to the full range of learning styles, accelerated learning, top levels of Bloom’s Taxonomy and many more.  Many trainers who have jumped aboard the Apple bandwagon may understand the capabilities of these devices, but Neil is different in that he sees not the technology, but the learning opportunities provided by it. He will demonstrate how to have students maximising their creative potential though iMovie, animations, drawings, annotated photographs and more.  The result of successfully integrating powerful technology into the classroom in the hands of an able teacher promotes motivation, inspiration and academic progress in all areas. This is more than how to use an iPad, this is how to use an iPad (or iPads) in your classroom.

Please can delegates bring an iPad with iMovie and the ability to install new apps to the training day. We will also have a brief sharing ideas session so please feel free to share a great app you have found (optional).

“Peter had a really engaging style, using his own personal and practical experience as well as humour to engage his audience. There was a lot of content in the sessions he ran, both practical and developmental. All of our staff felt that they got a lot from the day.”

Fabulous, practical ways of using the iPad in the classroom. Made it look so simple to create IWB activities.

Time went very quickly. Pitched at exactly the right level. Very engaging. Everyone 'fired up' about iPads.
