We know that technology on its own cannot help students achieve more in the classroom. Consequently, this is one of the main reasons the current ICT curriculum is going through major changes in English Schools. Whilst plans are being rolled out for a discrete computer science discipline, research shows that innovative teaching practices, supported by technology, strongly predict the development of 21st century skills amongst learners.
Partners in Learning are pleased to announce support for all teachers who want to roll out technology in the wider curriculum. The ‘Teaching with Technology’ e-course is free, self-paced online professional development, where educators learn how integrating the right technology tools into the classroom can enhance the overall teaching and learning experience of the 21st century learner, regardless of the subject matter.
Online learning designed to give you a deeper understanding of ICT
The Teaching with Technology curriculum is competency-based and can be customized to meet your needs. There are six online learning e-courses to choose from and each unit of study stands on its own so you can focus on a specific area of interest or need. You can start with what interests you most and progress through the learning at your own pace:
How to take advantage of this opportunity:

For one week only, the Bloodhound Super Sonic car is coming to Enfield!
Metaswitch, in association with the BloodHound SSC Project Team is proud to announce that the actual Bloodhound supersonic car will be visiting the London Borough of Enfield at the following venues:
This project is a cutting-edge engineering adventure which is hoping to break the world land speed record. Education is a key element of the project and Metaswitch are joining with the Bloodhound team to use the project to capture the imaginations of young people to inspire more school pupils in Enfield to continue with STEM subjects (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) and to become ground-breaking engineers of the future.
It’s going to be a fun and fantastic opportunity to celebrate STEM activities and every school in the Borough is being invited to attend. There will be a number of events – including a Launch Evening, a Business Breakfast and two Community Events, as well as interesting projects and activities for the schools.
If you have any queries or questions, please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org
