Securing rapid progress in communication and language development in EYFS/KS1 using iPads and tablet computers

This “hands-on” course demonstrates how mobile technology can impact on progress and standards in nurseries, EYFS settings and Key Stage 1. The approaches and methods shared are based on outstanding classroom practice and can easily be applied to all subjects, topics and levels. The day is packed with a wealth of practical activities focusing on communication and language along with personal, social and emotional development.

The course will be delivered by Chris Williams who has presented his classroom approach for The National Literacy Trust and at conferences in the USA. He has led teams of EYFS and KS1 staff teachers across Yorkshire on projects based on making an impact through effective integration of technology. Alongside colleague, David Andrews, Chris shares his work on the popular blog which has been shortlisted in the 2014 UK Blog Awards.

This course features the use of iPad minis (provided on the day, no experience necessary!) although ideas, methods and activities can be carried out on other devices. All activities require a minimum of 1 mobile device and are not reliant on extensive whole-school investment in technology.

  • Key Stage 1/EYFS teachers and teaching assistants
  • Heads/Deputies interested in exploring the whole impact of mobile technology
