Webinar: Using mobile technologies in a junior classroom - one teacher's story | Enabling e-Learning event

Yesterday (March 27), Josie Woon graciously spent some time sharing her classroom practice with us in the LIVE webinar: Using mobile technologies in a junior classroom - one teacher's story

This story really got to the heart of the matter – where Josie shared her journey about using iPads to help improve her student's literacy skills - such as handwriting, reading comprehension and confidence with oral literacy (English and Te Reo).

Josie also shared some practical systems (rotation/cycles) and processes that have enabled all her students to access educational apps on mobile tablets to support their learning.


So what were the benefits?


As well as increases in motivation and engagement in learning, Josie's students showed improved self-regulated learning behaviors - as well as improved outcomes in many areas of literacy.

Why not download the recording of this session and play this back to find out for yourselves.
