Workshop Fee: S$350.00 per participant. If 2 or more participants from the same school/organization attend the same workshop, the discounted fee will be S$300.00 per participant for that particular workshop. Fees are subject to GST and include all training materials, 2 tea breaks and a lunch.

You are invited to a 1 day interactive training workshop which aims to provide you with insights into new technologies and pedagogies and the potential of these for developing your pupils’ knowledge, skills and understanding of the digital world and their role in it. It will use a pupil-centred approach to exploring online safety and explore the most effective ways to help children navigate digital environments and become effective, creative and responsible digital citizens.

Teachers will gain practical insights into how best to promote a whole-school culture of ‘digital citizenship’, kindness and wellbeing which embraces positive values and behaviour. This will include practical ideas for effective parental engagement on these themes.

The workshop will feature ‘live-blogging’ so teachers can gain practical insights into how such tools can be used for reflective practice. All attendees will also gain access to a specially created Google site with links to further resources.
