Teachers’ Support Day (1st October 2010)

October 8, 2010

A big ‘Thank You’ to all schools that attended the Teachers’ Support Day last Friday. It was a very productive meeting that gave us the opportunity to share with the teachers the project’s progress so far and our future plans.

The meeting also introduced a series of suggested activities with ICT in the home environment within the next 9 weeks.

Booklets were handed out to teachers who will, in turn, deliver this information to all parents taking part in the study.  The meeting also briefly introduced teachers to the idea of ‘blogging’ and rss feeds.

We look forward to the next meeting on 7 th January where Prof. Iram Siraj-Blatchford will be giving a  presentation about the parental role in children’s early years education and development. In addition, we will be introducing the second part of our intervention programme.
