"Over the last few months I have been an avid follower of Lee on Twitter and a dedicated reader of his exceptional blog about I pads in education. I can absolutely say that just these two things have had an extremely positive impact on not only the children that I teach but also the other teachers at my school, as we have strived, inspired by Lee’s example, to embed ICT within our whole curriculum. I have recently been fortunate enough to attend both an evening session and a full day course, run enthusiastically by Lee, and I am still bursting with inspiration, ideas and motivation, days later! Lee’s course will not only inspire teachers but offer them a wealth of invaluable ideas, not for ‘I pad lessons’ but for successfully integrating ICT across the wider curriculum that can be easily adapted! Lee ‘gets it’ when leading his courses because he is a teacher himself! Lee’s courses are a must for all teachers, not just ICT Co-ordinators."- Christopher May, ICT Co-ordinator, St Christopher's Stockport.
"Refreshing I.C.T training explained in a no nonsense way that didn’t have us (technophobes) running for the door. In the past we have trawled through the app store to find apps/programmes that were helpful with planning that enabled us to embrace technology the students were already comfortable with however in order for us to utilise the ipads in our classrooms we were unaware of how to take the next step.What we took from the training was that we no longer felt limited by the ipad and see it as a tool to engage. Lee didn’t just reel off a list of apps but explained what we could get out of them, how they lend themselves to different classroom situations and how some help you look at planning lessons in a whole new way e.g. ‘Kinectimals’-virtual pet, for non-chron reports, descriptions and instruction writing. Some apps like ‘Evernote’ and ‘dropbox’ were a revelation as they took away the problems we were having with ipads in the classroom allowing us to save work/pictures without having to back up to hard copies anymore. Apps as a tool to engage e.g. ‘Autorap’ for times tables, ‘Video star’ to make movies, ‘Maths v zombies’ and ‘Marble maths’ are already creating excitement in our classrooms. Listing apps that have been tried and tested was a great time saver.We would love more info on blogging and twitter and how these could hurl us technophobes into the next century.
Thanks again Lee. "
@ICT_MrP a massive thanks for Friday's training - this has truly inspired thinking and purpose for using iPads in primary.

📲Reflecting on @ict_mrp's iPad course, it is because he is a practising primary school teacher that made it so real. Lots of ideas shared.📲
