Description The day will share practical and innovative approaches to delivering the new Primary Curriculum through the use of technology. The day will be delivered by Lee Parkinson, (@ICT_MrP) a classroom teacher, who specialises in using technology to raise standards across the curriculum. Lee’s engaging and inspiring approaches will help teachers to provide stimulating and motivating lessons for both Key Stage 1 and 2 pupils. The conference will explore how the internet can be used in schools beyond researching, and how tools such as iPads can really impact on the teaching and learning throughout a Primary School. With a focused approach on Literacy and Numeracy, the day will also cover ideas that can be applied across the whole curriculum.

The day will be indispensable for class teachers, literacy and numeracy co-ordinators and SMT's seeking to raise standards through using technology. The day is ideas-rich and full of practical activities, which can be used straight away. Everything shared on the day has been recently taught by Lee in the schools he works with.

Session one 9.30 – 10.45 – Make the most of the internet

Lee will explain how he began to use blogging as a tool to raise writing standards in school and how participants might apply these practical ideas. In addition to  blogging, Lee will demonstrate other practical tools which can be used to publish and promote children’s work, making learning more real and engaging with real examples of how the internet has raised writing standards in school.


Session two 11-12.15 – Apps and tools to support you as a teacher

With mobile technology now redefining teaching and learning in many schools, Lee will share a wealth of ideas and apps that make the process of planning, assessing and teaching easier and more current for today’s world. With examples of how to use apps to support the flipped classroom theory in Numeracy to annotating children’s writing by mirroring an iPad to a whiteboard and also ways to save work created on iPads through cloud based storage.


Session three 1- 2.15 – Apps to bring the curriculum alive!

Lee will demonstrate tools and apps that will motivate children to develop key Literacy and Numeracy skills. He will also demonstrate how technology can be used as part of the planning process and as a way of enhancing writing by being bringing the story alive through different creative approaches.  Lee will share ways to use apps to encourage quality oral speaking opportunities for children to demonstrate key numeracy methods and also to demonstrate their understanding of a text or topic. All suggested activities will be supported by real examples from children with specific links back to the new Primary Curriculum.


Session four 2.30 – 3.15 – Camouflage learning

Lee will finish of the day sharing his experience of using ‘camouflage learning’ to engage motivate pupils. The idea of using topics for Numeracy and Literacy that children are really interested in has had massive impact and enhanced learning across both Key Stages. The idea of using topics in the classroom that have all the children excited and enthused about their learning can help teachers develop key numeracy skills as well as cover different writing genres focusing purely on the specific features of that text.
