Welcome to the Teaching with Tablets online course project blog
This blog documents the development, presentation and evaluation of a free online course: Teaching with Tablets.
This is an interactive and participatory online course on how to make effective use of iPads and tablets for teaching and learning. Our course is aimed at educators across all levels, from Primary to Higher Education, from NQTs to experienced practitioners. Anyone with an interest in the field is very welcome.
It is a flexible online course that participants can join in with at a pace and depth that suits them. We hope that the course will inspire educators to explore strategies to integrate tablets in a meaningful way. It offers guidance on:
• how to use tablets to devise authentic and meaningful learning activities
• how to embed tablets in genuine curriculum contexts
• how to evaluate which educational apps might be appropriate for your learners
We would like participants to leave each session with a new idea to try out in practice and then share thier experiences on the Google+ community. The idea is to take a few risks, try some new things, share our developing practice in teaching with tablets and learn together as we go.
