This course is suitable for novice users and you do not need access to an IWB while participating. All our courses require broadband Internet access (Min of 2mb recommended) and participants need to be familiar with using the internet, downloading and installing software.
Teachers will be enabled to locate and create interactive educational resources which maximise the potential of the Interactive Whiteboard in the classroom. They will gain an understanding of how the use of ICT in practical ways can make learning more stimulating for their students.
The participants will develop their ICT skills through the location, manipulation, organisation and creation of curriculum resources suitable for use with the Interactive Whiteboard. They will understand how the integration of this process into their everyday teaching will help their students’ learning.
Delivered online, this course can be taken anytime, anywhere between July 3rd and August 25th 2017. Participants will be encouraged to engage meaningfully with course content for approximately 20 hours. Whilst engagement with the course content will be primarily judged on the quality of their contributions, a log of their time spent working on the course will be kept.
