Embedding ICT in the Primary Classroom:

This Summer Course for 2017 from PDST TiE will introduce teachers at all class levels to ways in which ICT can be easily integrated into daily teaching practices. The course will investigate the use of a range of literacy, numeracy and wider curriculum related websites and resources which can add to active learning in the primary classroom.  

Over the duration of the course teachers will be guided through the process of creating a wide range of teaching, learning and assessment based digital resources which they can use in their own classrooms.  

Other key areas of course content to be discussed and developed include the importance of safer internet practices in the school environment, finding and selecting good quality educational content online, developing whole school assessment practices through the use of ICT and finally planning for e-learning practices to complement current SSE practices in your school.
