ICT Training PDF Print E-mail

ICT training from PrimaryWise is designed to facilitate two key areas:

  1. Developing the ICT capability of teachers, teaching assistants, support staff ... and pupils!
  2. Improving learning and teaching across the curriculum

In the past decade millions of pounds has been invested in ICT by schools through generous Government funding initiatives.  Attempts to provide staff with the necessary skills and understanding to make most effective use of this investment have met with varied levels of success.  Some readers may remember NOF!

Chris Flanagan has been an acknowledged leader and innovator in the use of ICT in schools for over 20 years. Tap into his extensive knowledge and expertise by contacting PrimaryWise to discuss possibilities of taking your school, its staff and pupils, forward in the use of ICT ......

Building effective school websites

ICT for Teaching Assistants

Developing the skills of TAs in this area is vital if their role in supporting learning and teaching in the classroom is to be fully effective.  Sadly, evidence shows that it remains an area where confidence is generally low.  The good news is that scores of TAs Chris has worked with over the last couple of years say that they are only too willing to learn .... given the chance!
