In this popular course for 2018 by PDST TiE, emphasis will be placed on guiding participants to create their own digital teaching, learning and assessment resources, while also exploring useful online tools to support and enhance pupils’ cross-curricular work.  

Each module includes ample opportunity for discussion centred on classroom application and includes specific reference to the use of digital technologies in creating meaningful learning opportunities in the areas of literacy, numeracy and assessment. Each module refers to classroom-based examples of differentiation across the curriculum so as to cater for all pupil’s levels of ability and the variety of needs that exist within every class.

Other important related areas of course content to be explored during the course include digital citizenship and internet safety, finding and selecting good quality digital content online and exploring the newly constructed Digital Learning Framework and how a school may go about creating their digital learning plan in this regard.
