ICT with Mr P is coming to Exeter – 12 May 2017
Raising standards across the curriculum through the use of technology
Lee Parkinson, an experienced teacher and renowned trainer, is on a mission to change teaching by making sure schools are working smarter, not harder. Through a range of ideas and approaches, he shows teachers how to gain a decent work/life balance while giving more effective feedback and evidencing and assessing learning more effectively and efficiently.
In these masterclasses, Lee will share a wide range of apps, ideas and strategies to help teachers make the most of technology in their classroom.
Lee will explain how he began to use blogging as a tool to raise writing standards in school and how participants might best apply these practical ideas to their schools. He will also demonstrate other practical tools which can be used to publish and promote children’s work, making learning more real and engaging, with examples of how the internet has raised writing standards in school.
Delegates will experience a demonstration on how to use Lee’s three point approach to raising standards in writing through technology. The demonstration will also show how technology can be used as part of the planning process and as a way of enhancing writing, bringing stories alive through a wide variety of creative approaches. Lee will go on to demonstrate how this approach has developed in to ‘ReadWritePerform’, which is a resource used globally to enrich the teaching the of English in a cohesive and purposeful way.
