Digital Technologies to Support the Literacy Process
This course aims to investigate a range of effective and easy to use digital tools which can successfully support and enhance students’ competence and confidence in the areas of reading comprehension, oral language, writing and vocabulary at all class levels.
Throughout the week participants will explore practical classroom-based digital activities which will provide them with valuable approaches to employ when embedding digital technologies into their classroom practices to meaningfully enhance teaching, learning and assessment. Ways in which differentiation can be easily achieved to support all students, and in particular those with SEN needs, will also be explored in each module.
Other important key areas of course content to be discussed and developed in this course also includes digital citizenship and internet safety, finding and selecting good quality digital content online, developing whole school assessment practices through the use of digital technologies and exploring the newly constructed Digital Learning Framework and how a school may go about creating their digital learning plan in this regard.
