Learn how to differentiate the Literacy Block for your diverse range of students in all areas of literacy instruction – speaking, reading, comprehending, writing, spelling and creating. Using strategies supported by embedding technology within your instructional approach and making the best of the technologies available to you.
Whether those technologies be a fully WiFi-enabled one-to-one iPad classroom projecting up onto LCD touchscreens, or whether you are working in a "technology deprived classroom" with just one ageing interactive whiteboard and a lone iPad to be shared amongst all of your students! Join us to learn how to make the most of what you have on hand. And to see what is possible should you add extra technologies to your classroom literacy kit. This workshop will give you ideas for application in ALL primary school classrooms, for ALL students in the room!

Meet your Presenters
The other unique learning opportunity offered by this workshop is that it is jointly presented by an early childhood educator and a speech pathologist. As an experienced early childhood classroom teacher, Jenni McDonald, knows what it’s like in the real world of education. Like you, she has simultaneously tried to juggle the needs of many students while striving to accommodate their individual learning needs. She has also advised other teachers as an Early Childhood Literacy Consultant, so she appreciates how you feel when you have "experts" come in trying to tell you what to do in your busy classroom!
Jenni’s contribution will be balanced wonderfully by input from speech pathologist, Amanda Hartmann. As a result of her 17 years of experience in her private speech pathology clinic, working in schools across Australia and SE Asia, and in her role as a member of the Spectronics Consultancy Team, Amanda has developed a keen eye for identifying the pre-requisite skills for reading and writing that may need extra attention in individual students. She is also tuned into the need for her recommendations for intervention strategies to work within a classroom environment.
Hold onto your hats, and your iPads! This is going to be a fast-paced information-packed day delivered by presenters who passionately live and breathe effective literacy instruction practice. They love it!
