Course

Mobile learning boot camp [Code: 1DMLBC]

 

Who is the course suitable for?

Primary and secondary teachers (and teaching assistants).

 

About the course:

One of the great advantages of e-learning often quoted is how quick and easy it is to amend and update resources. This is true, but only if you can actually amend the resources for your pupils. You'll know how each of your students has their own unique needs. How often have you found a great piece of software but wanted to tweak the text or an image slightly, and then you've been frustrated at not being able to do so?

 

This course will support you in delivering quality mobile learning interventions for your pupils by putting you, the teacher (or assistant), firmly in charge of the resource creation (and amendment as needed).

 

During the course you learn how to create high quality interactive resources which will work equally well on Android, iPhone and iPad devices. As part of the course you will also be given a set of dozens of templates to aid in creating your own mobile learning resources for your pupils. The interactive resources you are shown how to create will also work equally well on desktop and laptop computers.

 

What the attendee will be able to do at the end of the course:

  • Create for themselves quality interactive resources compatible with Android and iOS smartphones and tablets (and that will work on desktop and laptop computers)

 

How the course benefits an attendee's school:

  • By empowering staff to create their own resources for use with mobile devices it reduces the need to purchase expensive third party curriculum software (often with annual renewal fees); it also future-proofs a school against possible future curricula changes - if mobile learning resources are created in-school by staff, they are more easily and rapidly amended

 

Post course support:

  • Most definitely, if you want to phone or email a question to the trainer; or send through a resource you’ve created for your trainer’s feedback; this is actively encouraged

  • JSH's +1 offer: At the end of all of our events the trainer will stay behind for an additional hour for any questions you may have or to provide additional support. However, we know at the end of a training event a delegate is often tired, or needs to get home or perhaps return to school. So for all JSH Learning courses, once you have attended a course, the next time that same course is in your area, if you wish to come along at the end of the day to ask a question that arisen or you did not get time to ask first time, this is actively encouraged (we just ask you drop us an email first)

Course

 

Creating accessible resources boot camp [Code: 1DCARBC]

 

Who is the course suitable for?

Primary and secondary teachers (and teaching assistants), those with responsibility for special educational needs or an interest in moving into this area.

 

About the course:

In July 2015 the government published statistics showing how 15.4% of pupils in schools in England had identified special educational needs. That's some 1.3 million pupils. Creating accessible resources for pupils is vital to ensure equity of access for all.

 

This course demonstrates how a teacher can create more accessible documents, presentations and images for online or printed resources for use in their day-to-day practice; and also shows best practice in creating alternative formats.

 

What the attendee will be able to do at the end of the course:

  • Recall common accessibility issues encountered by pupils when accessing teacher-created digital and print resources

  • Test digital document and presentation resources for common accessibility issues

  • Design and create resources to overcome accessibility issues commonly encountered by pupils with teacher-created digital and print resources and ensure equity of access for all

 

How the course benefits an attendee's school:

  • The course supports teacher skillset development to design and create accessible resources, which will help ensure pupils with SEN are given access to the curriculum and are motivated and challenged to the same degree as their peers. Attendees on their return can share current best practice, research and innovative ideas with the wider school community to aid in ensuring equity of access for all. It will provide a school with practical support in helping meet its responsibility in providing appropriate special education needs provision as required on a pupil-by-pupil basis

 

Post course support:

  • Most definitely, if you want to phone or email a question to the trainer; or send through a resource you’ve created for your trainer’s feedback; this is actively encouraged

  • JSH's +1 offer: At the end of all of our events the trainer will stay behind for an additional hour for any questions you may have or to provide additional support. However, we know at the end of a training event a delegate is often tired, or needs to get home or perhaps return to school.
