A revamped and revised summer course for 2017 from PDST TiE based on the purposeful use of tablet technologies, namely the iPad in this instance, and how it can be used to support teaching and learning in the Irish primary classroom. 

Firstly, teachers will examine the key educational and whole-school considerations in the deployment of tablet technologies through a range of participant oriented tasks and activities. Participants will explore areas such as developing literacy and numeracy lessons with tablet devices, investigating accessibility and SEN practices in Irish classrooms before planning for the possible integration of tablet devices across the wider curriculum. 

The course will also explore how tablet devices can be used to develop whole school assessment practices by developing a portfolio of sample teaching and learning resources for all class levels over the week. Finally, the development of safer internet practices and whole school planning for e-learning will also be prioritised throughout the course.

Scratch is a programming language that makes it easy to create your own interactive stories, animations, games, music, and art -- and share your creations on the web.

As young people create and share Scratch projects, they learn important mathematical and computational ideas, while also learning to think creatively, reason systematically, and work collaboratively.

The Computer Education Society of Ireland (CESI) and Lero - the Irish Software Engineering Research Centre are engaging in an initiative to develop and roll out teacher training in the use of Scratch (a visual programming language) in the classroom, funded by the National Centre for Technology in Education (NCTE). The course is scheduled to run over two nights.  Each course will be lead by a teacher practitioner, who will indicate approaches used in class.
