ONSITE ICT/COMPUTING TRAINING
Keeping staff up to date and trained with current and new computing technologies is more important than having the technology itself. After all, what is the point in having a fancy new piece of software or hardware if your staff can’t use it? We can offer you several different types of sessions depending on your school’s requirements from simple webinars to full training days or even 1:1 team teaching sessions. Below are some of the computing staff training sessions we can offer.
Twilight Computer Training Sessions
A twilight session is an ideal way to improve staff confidence with a particular technology. Normally these would run from 3.30 to 5.00 pm after the school day. Sometimes a series of twilight sessions can work better than a whole day session as it helps remind staff on the technologies used. Each session will be tailored to your school’s staff to ensure they get the most from the session. Some common twilight sessions include iPad training, Google Apps Training and the new computing curriculum.
Half/Full Day Computer Training Sessions
Sometimes a half/full day session is a better way to train staff on certain technologies, this is especially useful when launching a new technology in the school. These would normally run from 9.00am to 12.00pm and 1.00pm to 4.00pm. This gives plenty of time for staff to get fully hands on using the specific systems/technologies effectively. Some common sessions include iPad training, Google Apps training, programming/coding training including scratch training. Sessions will always be tailored to the schools requirements in a discussion before the computing training session..
1:1Computer Training Sessions
Schools often have hard to reach staff or those staff who need a little more assistance with understanding a new technology. Therefore we offer a unique 1:1 computing training session. This normally last for half a day and involves sometime looking at the technology and thinking about how it can be used in lessons. This is followed by sometime jointly planning a lesson using the technology and then delivering the lesson together in a team teaching style. Sometimes multiple sessions are required but we believe these sessions really help in giving those harder to reach teachers the confidence to move on and use the technologies in class.
