'Grab-and-Go' training sessions on digital teaching tools

The Education and Training Foundation has launched a series of six ‘Grab-and-Go’ lunchtime skills development sessions exploring digital teaching tools. The free sessions are aimed at those teaching digital skills or teaching remotely.

Each session will last just 30 minutes and will demonstrate the key features of a selected digital tool, followed by an opportunity to create a resource using the tool.

The sessions are scheduled for 1pm on Fridays, starting on Friday 5 February. The idea is to provide a short, inspiring input during the lunchtime period.

There will be six sessions in all, covering:

  • Apps for remote teaching
  • Photo editing with Microsoft Photo
  • Using Wordwall
  • Video editing using YouTube
  • Using Quizlet
  • Microsoft voice recorder.

The new series is part of the ETF’s Essential Digital Skills CPD programme, which is designed to support the delivery of courses based on the national standards for Essential Digital Skills.

The aim is to support teachers in developing their skills, knowledge and confidence to use specific digital teaching tools to deliver courses online.

Vikki Liogier, the ETF’s National Head of EdTech and Digital Skills, said:

“We have developed this new series of ‘Grab-and-Go’ workshops in response to practitioners’ need for timely, practical support in the current situation. We know that time is at a premium for teachers and trainers at the moment and short inputs are appreciated, particularly on topics related to remote teaching and learning.”
