Description The aim of this course is to offer practical solutions to help support the more able children in the primary classroom. How to recognise gifted and talented children, effective strategies in the different subject areas and how to monitor your children’s progress are some of the intended outcomes. The role of technology is extremely relevant to this topic so suggestions for suitable hardware and software will be given along with some practical ideas on how to use these in class. The course is suitable for all teachers from NQTs through to subject leaders. Teachers attending will also be given a variety of IT resources that can be used back in class to enhance learning with children
