Using Digital Technologies for Literacy and Numeracy in the Junior Classroom

This summer course for 2019 by PDST TiE engages teachers in a hands-on approach to using digital technologies in the junior classroom to support and enhance teaching, learning and assessment. Each module explores a range of digital tools that can be used to effectively develop active pupil learning in the areas of literacy and numeracy.

Participants will be afforded many opportunities throughout the week to explore digital tools and online content relevant to this specific level within the primary school context. They will also explore how easily these tools can be differentiated to include all learners in the class, and in particular, those with additional educational needs. Relevant classroom-based examples of collaborative and cooperative work in infant classrooms will also be explored during the week by all participants as they begin to plan for the use of digital technologies to support teaching, learning and assessment in their own classrooms.

Other important related areas of course content to be explored include digital citizenship and internet safety, finding and selecting good quality digital content online and exploring the Digital Learning Framework and how a school might go about creating their digital learning plan.


Framework and how a school may go about creating their digital learning plan in this regard.
