As exam season approaches, this event aims to equip you with a number of digital tools and strategies to help you support your pupils towards exam success! From in-class methods of checking understanding and online testing with immediate feedback, to the creation of multimedia revision resources to aid in factual recall, this event will enable you to create the resources you need and direct pupils to the most effective strategies for revision in any subject.
Designed to suit KS 2-5 teachers of all subject areas, you will leave with the tools and techniques to transform your students’ exam preparation. KS 1 and other teachers are still most welcome to attend.
A pre-configured iPad will be made available to each attendee to use on the day.
This event is FREE to attend and includes lunch
