Technology in the Classroom – Nearpod

Tuesday, January 23rd, 2018

We live in a time and age when most people seem to be glued to their devices. The truth is that we cannot get away from technology, which seems to be infiltrating every aspect of our lives. It is no wonder then, that teachers are nowadays expected to adapt their approach to the new digital era. Ofsted inspectors would proudly use phrases like “evidence of innovative use of technology” in their reports. This urges schools to loosen the purse strings to purchase iPads, Smart Boards, premium accounts to access educational resources like Glogster EDU, Storybird, Bitstrips or Nearpod, and teachers to open their mind and sharpen their skills in using these. There is a wide range of applications out there that all promise a better learning experience, more interesting lessons, less paperwork and happier students.

One of the best things about being a teacher trainer here at Carlton Training is that I get to go and visit our candidates in their workplaces to observe and monitor them teaching their own pupils and candidates. Everybody on the Level 4 CET and Level 5 DET courses has to carry out a certain amount of teaching which we monitor and grade according to Ofsted standards. This is a vital part of gaining the qualification, so it is my role to prepare and encourage candidates to be ready for when I visit them (we don’t just turn up by surprise!!!).
