Collaboration and Creativity

Mobile devices such as iPads and MacBooks removes the need for a traditional IT room layout and creates opportunities for students to learn and collaborate in new ways. Tablet Academy can support your institution to combine the mobility of the iPad with the power of cloud based collaboration environments such as iCloud, Office 365 or Google’s G Suite.

The iPad is the perfect tool to support creativity in the classroom. Tablet Academy have developed and delivered a wide range of creative projects from green screen studios to interactive museum guide e-books. As such our expertise can help your institution ignite the curriculum with creativity from 1-2-1 programmes to class-set deployments.

Swift Playgrounds

Delivering the Computing Curriculum from your iPads

Apple have developed a very full computing curriculum with supporting resources and documents to enable computing to be taught from KS2-KS5 using iPads as the start to their journey. This will enable your pupils to start off as coders on iPads and eventually become app developers using XCode on Apple Macs. The courses for KS2 and 3 are currently being mapped to the National Curriculum but are ready to go out of the box and be taught in the classroom today. All the software and resources are FREE and it is an exciting and innovative way of teaching the computer curriculum for primary and secondary schools. Tablet Academy can provide Full or Half-Day training to introduce your teachers to delivering the computing curriculum using iPads and the range of free apps linked to the Swift Playgrounds. Training can be tailored to meet your needs and can cover the following solutions:

  • Learn To Code - teacher materials on iBooks with 45 hours of lessons, enhanced activities, grading rubric, keynote presentations.
  • Pupils create a journal of their coding journey using the Seesaw app (or others of their choice)

  • iTunesU course for all levels - Everyone Can Code
  • KS4+ - App development with Swift, iBook with 90 hours of lessons and instructor guide

Enrichment-day

Pupil Enrichment Days

CSI Forensics

In this, our most popular workshop, students have to solve a crime using 21st Century Skills, Science, Mathematics and logical thinking. Working in teams they must collect evidence, analyse clues and create a written report as to their hypothesis, which they then share and discuss with the rest of the class.

STEM Workshops

This workshop consists of 6 activities which are designed to challenge pupil’s understanding of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics. Students work in groups to solve an equation, program a Turtle, investigate a murder and much more.

Robotics Workshops

If there is anything students love, its Robots. Our Robotics Workshop provides students with the opportunity to take control and program a range of robots to complete obstacle courses, solve mathematical challenges and cover elements of the computing curriculum, all in one activity.

Animation Workshops

Animation is great way to encourage writing, team work and the use of technology. The process requires pupils to apply a range of skills and can create quick results which have a quality outcome. This workshop can be built into a scheme of work where the teacher works with pupils to prepare stories, backdrops and characters prior to the workshop where we provide the knowledge and equipment to bring the animation to life.

Green Screen Studio Day

Working with film is an excellent way to encourage writing. Our Green Screen Studio Days are perfect for teachers who want to work with the pupils creating storylines, scripts, character profiles and storyboards, but don't have the knowledge or equipment to produce the end videos. This is where Tablet Academy can deliver a workshop where we combine all the skills learnt and work produced to create videos with Hollywood style affects.

Computing Curriculum

Delivered by our computing curriculum experts these workshops are designed to build on pupils current knowledge, providing new learning opportunities and stretching their understanding of the subject. Teachers also find this workshop a great source of knowledge and a way to gain professional development whilst teaching.

Design Your Own

We would be happy to work with you to develop your own Enrichment Day. All we need to know is the subject, age of pupils and required outcomes. Once we have these we will present our ideas for you to approve before the workshop takes place. Call 01952 567450 to discuss your ideas.
