Harnessing Technology for Learning

(CLICK HERE FOR PARENTS' WORKSHOP)

Why Would You Explore Learning Technologies?

IT can help schools overcome the time and resource constraints that persistently result in learners with SpLD performing poorly.

TODAY'S TECHNOLOGY CAN RAISE ATTAINMENT LEVELS FOR ALL.   
SCHOOLs JUST NEED TO KNOW HOW TO USE IT.

We have researched and tested many educational technologies. This know-how is condensed into focused workshops, enabling us to help educators to quickly navigate the huge range of learning technologies available.

WE DO NOT SELL PRODUCTS SO WE ARE ABLE TO GIVE INDEPENDENT ADVICE.


Benefits of Hosting a Workshop?

The benefits of hosting a workshop are that schools can a tailor it to meet their specific requirements. We take into consideration the architecture, devices and limitations of a particular school’s IT set up, as well as the needs of students and teachers.

One size does not fit all: we seek to work closely and collaboratively with staff and students to provide the best possible IT solutions to enhance the whole school’s experience of learning and teaching.

We can share our extensive experience with schools, thereby saving them the time that would have been invested in researching IT solutions. We are hopeful that schools might benefit from our advice and avoid unnecessary expenditure on sub-optimal products.

Raised ATTAINMENT LEVELS encourage PUPILS, PARENTS AND INSPECTORS.

Content of Our Workshops

We introduce teaching staff to the vast range of technology available, such as apps and software programmes, to help transform learning and to ultimately boost confidence and motivation of students and staff. 

Each workshop provides a good understanding of: 

  • What is available

  • The cost

  • Pros and cons of each solution

  • Real life problems encountered

  • How problems have been overcome

A wealth of information is provided to enable attendees to get up and running with their IT products as quickly as possible. 

Who should attend?

Anyone who is involved in teaching children with SpLD.

There are many benefits of inviting the parents to attend. Doing so improves partnership and collaboration between school and home.  Parents are often a willing capable and underutlised resources. Their attendance is critical when schools don’t have the sufficient budget to purchase life changing technology.

What people say about our workshops?

Caroline is very knowledgeable and very able to present to an audience. She speaks very well and managed to keep my interest levels high throughout. I felt I learned a lot that was worthwhile. Her presentation went across all age groups which would be suitable for both primary and secondary.

Many thanks for the excellent presentation last evening. As an ancient specialist teacher/tutor I have heard many talks on the use of IT to support children with SEND and yours was the most pleasant, informative and straightforward. I usually nod off!
