Ask any Foundation Phase teacher and they’ll tell you, the pressure is huge to increase learner outcomes by the end of Grade 3. But how to get there? How do we change teaching and learning and meaningfully integrate ICTs in the FP class to improve learning outcomes?
Limina’s FP ICT integration short course provides FP teachers with the tools to change and to meaningfully integrate ICTs to improve teaching and learning. The Limina FP ICT integration short course was designed specifically for FP teachers, to provide tools to plan and present lessons, to engage learners and to assess and stay on top of admin!
Since we know Foundation Phase (FP) teachers are GENERALISTS, Limina’s FP short courses in ICT integration prepares FP teachers to meaningfully integrate generalist tools like video, graphics and mobile apps into the FP class. Tired of keeping kids quiet or getting them to focus, why not use fun-filled apps to take the load off? How about those reams and heaps of papers for assessing orals or reading, or capturing each week’s mental maths and spelling tests? And what a mission to do assessments out on the sport field for physical education with books and papers, when your phone could quickly capture your marks and have the marksheet waiting at your desk before you get back to class?
