NCTE Online Summer Course Starts
NCTE: Continuing Professional Development
Approximately 800 participants have started the popular NCTE online summer course "Developing e-Learning in Your School (Primary)".
This is a highly interactive online course, created by the NCTE, to support the development of e-Learning in primary schools. First run in 2010 and oversubscribed, it has been revamped by NCTE to include a focus on literacy for the 2011 summer course. The course is approved for EPV days and is suitable for teachers with intermediate level ICT skills. It is fully funded by NCTE to enable its provision free of charge to teachers.
The course contains videos demonstrating e-Learning in action, practical examples, templates and many other resources to assist in the development of a school’s e-Learning Plan in the context of whole school planning. It is aimed at all teachers in a school, not just Principals and ICT co-ordinating teachers. Participants are supported by NCTE e-tutors, all of whom are primary teachers with excellent ICT skills and experience of ICT integration in their own schools.
