A revamped, practical course for 2016 from PDST TiE introducing 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.

This revised summer course for 2016 from PDST TiE will investigate a wide range of easy to use, practical online resources which can build and foster pupils' skills in reading comprehension, oral language, writing and vocabulary at all class levels. 

It will also explore how ICT can be used to support and develop key elements of literacy by developing a digital portfolio of sample teaching, learning and assessment resources for all class levels over the week. 

Each module makes reference to classroom based examples of using ICT to support differentiation so as to cater for our pupils’ varying learning abilities and SEN needs. Other relevant areas discussed during this course include building safer internet practices in my school, integrating technologies in literacy intervention programs as well as planning for e-learning and SSE on a whole school level.

This summer course for 2016 will introduce teachers to the skills involved in the process of film-making and how it can support and develop literacy skills. Each module is structured to encourage a hands-on approach to learning. 

Each module will begin with an exemplar before participants work on a range of directed tasks and activities through the use of a variety of film-making technologies (hand-held camera devices, software,) as tools to develop pupils’ literacy skills. All modules finish with a group discussion on classroom implementation as well as the sharing of ideas, strategies and good practice. 

Over the duration of the course, participants will explore how the process of film-making can be used to develop relevant resources to enhance teaching and learning in literacy across the curriculum.

A revamped and revised summer course for 2016 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.
