Elsium

As the Elsium Team consists of fully qualified and experienced teachers we have a vast amount of experience of working directly with students on projects across a range of curriculum areas from creating iPad bands to producing learning podcasts, building e-portfolios to recording reflective logs, to name a few.

Why not let your students become involved in engaging projects and see how mobile learning devices can create excitement for learning.

These workshops are designed to give students hands-on experience of working with iPad in a fun and interactive way, learners will be motivated to build on their knowledge , developing key skills in areas such as working collaboratively and developing independent learning.

In an afternoon or morning students can explore the creative world of playing as part of band, rocking out with distorted guitars and crashing cymbals.

Learners could shape and mould their understanding of an historic era such as the Romans or Tudors in a stop-motion animation.

Testimonial

"David has played a crucial role in the successful implementation of our iPads for Learning scheme. He worked with us throughout the planning process and now continues to provide advice and support from a leadership and curriculum development perspective. The feedback from all curriculum areas on his subject specific training has been very positive, even from areas that were initially skeptical! His work is extremely effective because of his understanding of learning. This was the key element in us choosing a partner to work with. As a result of this, he quickly gained the respect of our staff resulting in highly effective training to ensure existing skills were further developed. He brings a wealth of knowledge, creative solutions and practical examples to his sessions and his enthusiasm has really motivated our staff."
