When we deliver training in schools, we often find that it’s the simple things that teachers and learners don’t use. Pages is full of brilliant document templates including story book templates; how to guide templates; portfolio templates and lesson plan templates. The Pages for iPad Essentials course looks at these intuitive features and a whole lot more so that you can easily embed the app into classroom practice.

Supporting Reading Comprehension and Fluency:

You can find SEN related content throughout Select Academy. You can explore the accessibility features course or learn about how most apps accessible tools. However, this course is entirely focused on improving comprehension and free-flowing reading. Using the technology to support your learners can be the tipping point and ultimately help an individual to become a more active learner.
