Its been a few months of not posting, but I’m back! Time for an update, and tell you about the exciting future of this blog.
I have always wanted to go into teaching, and now that I have got through all the hurdles, I am finally known as a ‘trainee teacher’! I applied for a PGCE in Secondary Education in November year and it’s taken nearly a year to get to this point. I couldn’t be more excited and it has only been possible due to my hard work and determination to get there.
The FST Mobile Learning Project was one of my favourite projects I had ever taken part in and using the iPad for my studies proved to be a good idea. I learnt so much about the limits and capabilities of the iPad that I simply can not stop using it for my further studies.
Since the iPad was extremely useful for me in my Undergraduate study, I can only imagine how interesting it will be in my Postgraduate study. This time I will be in a different role – the teacher/lecturer!
The iPad I will be using is an iPad Air 2 with iOS 11, compared to the iPad Air (first generation) that we got with iOS 8 installed.
This is great as I can look at ways of using the iPad to plan and deliver my lessons.
I intend to continue blogging about my use of iPad during my teacher training. It proved to be a great ‘journal’ for the past 2 years and it will be great for other trainee teachers to perhaps give the iPad a try.
That’s all I can say for now, so you will need to check back next week for an update!
