Here’s what a few people have had to say about my work:

“A range of useful tools that were relevant, easy to use and most of all the majority of them were free. Thought was put into the delivery with time given to practice using the software and ideas given to how they can be used in the classroom. Course was well structured and planned. Brendan was a fantastic presenter and very helpful. I liked that it had elements that could be used in both primary and secondary as I teach both. Opportunities were shown for how tools could be used cross curricular. Brendan listened to our requirements and responded by adding in extra info that we asked for.”
Zoe Tostevin, Head of ICT, Dubai International School, Dubai

“The provider was excellent very open, approachable and very knowledgeable about what he is doing.”
Thomas Delaney, Gulf English School, Year 2 Teacher

“Brendan was down to earth, easy to talk with and full of practical ideas for classroom use.  Plenty of practical coding activities aimed at KS1 and KS2.”
Angela Souter, Y1 Teacher and ICT Leader, Jebel Ali Primary School, Dubai

“It was a very full programme, which allowed some practical use of the software. It was this time which was of most value. Brendan has a real passion for the work he does, his enthusiastic manner is infectious and makes you want to use many of the sites straight away on your return to school.” Rob Bradshaw, Y6 Class Teacher & ICT Coordinator, El Alsson, Giza, Cairo

“We all know how quickly ICT initiatives are progressing, but this course clearly put it into the context both of 2013 society and teaching today. The list of resources is extensive and it is great to spend time in the presence of an expert to actually play around with them and throw out ideas of how they can apply to your subject. ” Bobby Trivic, Head of Spanish, Dubai College

There were no weaknesses of the programme, all was relevant and pace was suitable.  The different websites that were displayed during the course can be easily utilised during lessons, far more easily than I had ever realised. Confidence to use them has grown!!  Brendan was very easy to listen to with lots of experience and some lovely anecdotes to accompany his knowledge. He was extremely patient with some of the “less technically” minded teachers present i.e. me!!! Confidence with technology is my main issue……but having a person who is so knowledgeable and so willing to help was a massive bonus. Thoroughly enjoyed the whole 2 days.  Clare Devitt, Year 2 Class Teacher, Jebel Ali Primary School

“…patient and dealt with my need for support in an efficient manner. Obviously knows everything about the subject.”

“Fantastic day, very inspiring. Will definitely follow this up. We will be re-thinking our action plans in the light of today’s input.”

“Hugely inspirational and empowering”

“An excellent day with lots of time to practice the skills shown by the course leader”

“Lots of achievable activities to do with my age range (reception). Many courses we go on are very KS2/KS3 orientated.”

“The content far outreached the expectations I had. The description did not do this course justice.”

“With media being introduced into our curriculum next year, I found every part of the course of interest and importance.”

“We were all left feeling very positive about the ICT we offer in our school.”

“His technical expertise, alongside the ease with which he engages teachers, is a winning combination”
