Vital is a new initiative from the Open University and E-skills providing a range of innovative ICT CPD for use across the curriculum.
In Redbridge we have been offered free involvement in 2 online tutor led courses:
- Sharing ideas (using a wiki) Primary (V01a-PW)
- Sharing ideas (using a wiki) Secondary (V01b-PW)
We are looking for 30 teachers to trial this new way of taking part in CPD…
All you need to do is register on the website www.vital.ac.uk and email London@vital.ac.uk to let them know which course you would like to attend remembering to name the school where you work. You will also need to email Tina.Pennells@redbridge.gov.uk so that we may confirm to Vital that you work in a Redbridge school and that you are eligible for this free trial.
The commitment Vital need is 20 hours over 8 weeks (and access to an internet based computer for at least 13 of those hours) to participate from 29th March. We will require that you complete a borough CPD feedback form at the end of the period to review the project.
If you would like to take part, or have colleagues who might, please contact me to find out more or register directly on the Vital site.
