We are very conscious that there is limited CPD in the area of technology for EYFS. Over the last few years we have created specific provision for EYFS in the form of a half day conference giving EYFS practitioners an opportunity to gain hands on experience of a range of relevant technologies and how to use them effectively in their setting. We have worked with several EYFS staff to create a simple guide to making effective use of technology in EYFS that provided the foundation for the half day conference.
This course was very well received and attendees expressed an interest in a subscription to meet their specific needs If an EYFS setting is part of an existing Primary school then they can access resources and CPD through our standard or bespoke subscription provision. However other settings, such as pre-schools, playgroups and private nurseries, do not have this opportunity.
We are aware that many of these settings have very limited budgets and as such have heavily discounted our normal pricing to allow settings to access the support they need in a cost effective manner.
Please note that Email / Telephone Support is not for IT technical support but for allowing staff to ask for any assistance with regard to using technology effectively in EYFS (sometimes this involves some technical expertise).
The Using ICT effectively in early years foundation stage half day conference will not be a repeat of last year’s conference but will build on that session and look at other technology and pedagogies.
