Why attend?

Having ICT tools at your fingertips does not make a difference to a child’s learning. It is what you do with the technology that counts. It has now been proven that IT in its many forms can motivate, support and be adapted to suit the learning needs of all different types of learner. It is a powerful tool for sharing and exploring information but it is rarely used interactively. It can also be used to develop pupils’ (and teachers’) thinking in a range of ways including reasoning, understanding and creativity. This course will focus on how you can use IT to support and enhance the learning experiences of all children when teaching all four modes of English.


To have accessed and explored a range of accessible IT resources that can support pupils with a range of learning needs and understand a range of approaches in supporting reluctant writers through the use of IT

Ideal for: KS1 & KS2 teachers looking to improve inclusion and engage reluctant learners with regard to reading, writing, speaking and listening
