Many thanks to those of you who have volunteered for the Staff Digital Leader Programme for Education.
We are now sitting at over 50 members of staff who are keen to support schools with using Technology to enhance Learning and Teaching. These people will liaise with the Learning through Technology Team to coordinate training sessions and pass on information re technology in the classroom and the National Digital Agenda.
We will be officially launching our programme on the 15th September in Committee Room 5, Woodhill House. This day will be a mixture of planning, discussions and hands on workshops.
We have a Glow Site with more information about the programme and a Yammer group for ongoing discussions.
Apple Teacher is a free professional learning programme designed to support and celebrate educators using Apple products for teaching and learning. As an educator, you can build skills on iPad and Mac that directly apply to activities with your students, earn recognition for the new things you learn, and be rewarded for the great work you do every day.
An iTunesU twilight has been arranged for the 19th April at The Gordon Schools.
This will be a ‘Hands on’ , practical walkthrough through setting up a class in iTunesU, homework hand-in, integrated grade book and private discussions. See how simple it is to deliver lessons, grade assignments and stay connected using iPads in the classroom and at home. You already have everything you need. Just import your favourite teaching materials into iTunes U – documents, worksheets, web links, photos and videos – to quickly build your lessons and assignments.
I am pleased to let you know that the cluster training for the Glow Advanced twilights are now live on Aberdeenshire Events.
