Resources to support

There are plenty of excellent resources available to support you as you get to grips with using technology in the classroom. The following eBooks are free to download and make a great resource to support you in your journey.

Supporting the Digital Competence Framework in Wales

These great starter guides provide teachers with excellent tips to get to grips with a range of programmes but they also give great ideas for how to use them in the classroom to bring learning to life.

In Wales we have a new Digital Framework that looks at how students can develop key digital skills. The use of these apps alone will not cover the framework but how you use the apps will. Developing student productivity and creativity is central to the framework.

Trainee teachers gaining their badges

Congratulations to the first few student teachers from the University of South Wales that have gained their badge as Apple Teachers already. Following some input in lectures and using the teacher guides, these students have shown their knowledge of the use of technology in the classroom and are well on their way to making a difference.
