The Armidale School
This session will look at a variety of strategies and ideas to immerse technology into an infants curriculum. We will look at how to integrate technology into Transition to Year 2 teaching programmes and the best ways to enhance the learning process. I will give some tips on how to use a variety of MAC software to support learning in all KLA's. I will also showcase a wide variety of students creations from the infants classes at TAS and how the teachers there have immersed technology into their everyday teaching.
