Staff development services

At Mirrabook we understand the changing face of education and how difficult it is to keep abreast of new technologies to enhance teaching and learning in the classroom, so we do all the leg work for you! We keep informed about current and emerging technology trends in education and explore the evidence base to see what is being employed with success and what is not. We then develop continuing professional development sessions and workshops that can be delivered directly in your organisation or at your away day. 

 

Some of our sessions and workshops are listed below.

Tech dinosaur versus tech hipster

This session begins by looking at the technology trend in education and why it isn't something to be ignored. We then deliver a broad overview of the current and emerging trends and examine some case studies of how these have been employed successfully. This session is a good springboard to get colleagues thinking about technology in an education context.
