“Tablets and iPads – Reaching all learners”
This tablet course enables teachers and educators to successfully introduce tablets and mobile ICT into their teaching and learning. Our course helps teachers to become more effective educators who can activate and empower their learners using tablets and mobile devices. There are lots of accessibility features to support learners with different disabilities and there are thousands of really good apps for all kind of learners.
The use of mobile devices radically changes the way we learn through enhanced motivation to learn and new possibilities for personalised and group learning. The iPad is a multi-tool that is low cost and user-friendly. With its accessibility features, accessories, various apps and the ability to adapt, it can serve various purposes for the student who find learning difficult.
Accessibility features of tablets and special apps support the inclusion of all learners. Additionally, they support creativity and self-expression and are great fun to use.
We have some great international trainers lined up to teach and share their insights on how to use tablets in the classroom for all learners.
Note: This course focuses mainly on iPads. it is fully funded via Erasmus+ Key Action one projects and is open to all teachers from across Europe, Irish teachers can also attend, but will not be able to use Erasmus funding. – Please contact us directly if your an Irish teacher/school and would like to come on our Tablet Course.

I attended the course on Saturday in DCU. We learned about apps that can put children who are struggling with reading and taking down from the board on a level playing field with their peers. Thanks!
