Boys writing and technology

Friday, Nov. 11th, 9:30am-3pm

39-40 Market Pl

South Shields, England

Reading and writing go hand-in-hand and it is through writing that children learn to formulate thoughts and improve their creativity and thinking skills. New research published by the National Literacy Trust reveals that boys are half as likely to enjoy writing as girls and almost a third never or rarely write outside of class.

Broadcaster and children’s author Simon Mayo says:

“It’s so important for boys to find a topic that interests them before they pick up a pen and start writing. I wasn’t particularly interested in writing at school, I only started to enjoy it later on, but I was hampered by being fantastically slow. When I
started writing the first Itch book, it was as a short story for my son, but then I was completely captivated by the plot and characters, and the story took over. If you can grab a child’s imagination in the same way, getting them to write about a hobby or something they really enjoy doing then the whole story writing world is open to them.”

Objectives of the course:

· To use he hardware, software and peripherals suggested and consider how they could be used in class to accelerate attainment in writing;

· Facilitate children’s independent consolidation activities;

· Know the place of multimedia digital tools within the framework for teaching writing

Who should attend: Literacy Leaders or any Primary Practitioner
