iPad Course for Teachers

Most Primary classrooms today have a few iPads available for student use. Many teachers are unsure of how to use the accessibility features of the iPad to support students with learning difficulties/differences. There are some wonderful apps that are reasonably priced that are well-suited for students with LD to allow them to achieve more, independently. Here is a course to show teachers how to use those devices for the bottom 30-50% in the class, to allow them to reach their potential.

Can your child touch-type?

Touch-typing is not often taught in many schools today. However, it has become a vital life-skill because most assignments in high school will be done on a laptop and most jobs require the use of a computer. When one can type with all ten fingers at speed, working memory is then freed up to consider how to write a good sentence and how to spell words- rather than being consumed by trying to find the right key.

It is strongly recommended that ALL students from the end of Year 2 upwards learn to touch type.
