Embedding Digital Technologies in the Primary School Classroom

Course description

Embedding Digital Technologies in the Primary School Classroom

(‘Embedding ICT in the Primary School Classroom’)


This hands-on practical course for 2018 from PDST TiE aims to equip teachers from all class levels with effective digital tools that will allow them to easily integrate digital technologies into their daily teaching. This course will investigate a wide range of curriculum related websites and resources which can enhance teaching, promote active learning and facilitate assessment right cross the curriculum, paying particular focus to literacy and numeracy in this regard.


Throughout this course, teachers are not only led in creating a wide range of digital teaching, learning and assessment resources that can be subsequently used in their classrooms, they also engage in a range of curricular-directed digital activities that can also be applied in their own settings to great effect.


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.
