EYFS: Accelerating Early Language Through Technology
All EYFS Practitioners and Senior Managers
Outline of event:
The course will be delivered by Chris Williams, who is a local external trainer with a passion for early language and communication. The course explores how to use children's interest in technology to develop these language skills and will feature the use of iPads, which will be provided for use on the day (no experience necessary).
The session will present a new and highly effective teaching approach and provide a range of practical and adaptable activities that can make an immediate impact in the EYFS classroom; the focus is language and communication with activities to support progress in reading, writing and mathematics as well as PSED.
Learning and Teaching Outcomes:
Delegates will gain:
* An understanding of how audio-visual technology can promote speaking, listening and communication together with PSE development
* An understanding of practical ways in which learning can be transformed using technology
* Outstanding and effective activities which make a sustained impact on learning and progress
* An understanding of new approaches to build on existing learning opportunities using technology
We expect that all CPD will involve integral evaluation processes
Online resources will be sent out after the course. Chris Williams also works directly with schools to follow up this CPD session as requested.
