12 November 2020 16:00-17:00, Practitioner Examples of Blended Learning in Primary

The Webinar will look at the tools and pedagogy used in this first term, the digital tools used and their impact on learners.

About this Event

Delivered by Andrew Boulind and Rory Buchanan from St Joseph’s RC School, Aberdeen.

Open to all practitioners, Glow Login Required

The Webinar will look at how Blended Learning has been used on return at the start of this new session 2020-2021 and its impact on the learners. After having returned in August form Lockdown, we felt it was important to utilise the digital skills the learners had gained as well as improving pupil engagement, motivation, and challenge by using a blended approach to learning in the classroom. By maintaining this blended approach, we have been able to provide a differentiated and more personalised approach to learning.

Although technology has played an important part in our classes it has been important to create a stimulating environment in the classroom where the displays demonstrate a range of curricular areas and are accessible and used to reinforce learning.

By using our variation of Blended learning, the pupils have been leading the learning. It was vital for us that learning was relevant and built on previous online learning. The approach has made sure that pupils are aware of learning expectations and know how to be successful in their learning, whether online or in class.

Learners are engaging in various types of learning experiences, online, in class and in groups. Learners are encouraged to develop high order thinking strategies in their classwork using the and online activities. Due to the use of online assessment tools the Learners are aware of feedback and can act rapidly on this. Digital technology is a feature of learning with both in class as well as at home. After the lockdown and the possibility that they had more “textbook type activities” it has been important to provide them with activities that they can relate their learning to real life contexts.

The Webinar will look at the tools and pedagogy used in this first term (August – October), the digital tools used and their impact on their learners. They will be examples of activities and pupil work as well as practical ideas and applications to take away from the session.

Long-term school closures earlier this year have highlighted the importance of developing children’s learning through a range of digital tools and resources. In this webinar we take a look at how children’s experience and knowledge of digital learning can be used to support their progress in Literacy and English. The sessions will provide practical guidance for practitioners to utilise a range of digital tools and resources which have been carefully selected to support the Literacy and English curriculum.

The webinar, run in partnership by Education Scotland Digital and Literacy colleagues, will consist of a series of three sessions. The first two sessions will be a tutorial style with examples of how aspects of listening, talking, reading and writing can be developed through digital learning. The third session will be interactive, allowing participants to share their own examples of practice or bring along an idea which they would like to develop through group discussion.

Upon booking your ticket a link will be issued to you to join the Developing Digital Learning in Literacy and English (webinars) Microsoft Team Site, within Glow; where the training will take place. This can take twenty four hours to process.
