About this course

Provided as part of the iPrimary and iLowerSecondary Curriculum Subscription, iPLS Implementation Training Programme, has been designed to fully equip teachers with an understanding of the components of iPrimary and iLowerSecondary, as well as key teaching and learning strategies to help them implement the curriculum effectively and confidently in their classrooms. Our professional development programme is divided into modular sessions that provide three different areas of support:1. iPrimary and iLowerSecondary OrientationThese sessions provide information and hands-on practice using different elements of the programme. They include an exploration of iPLS assessments and orientation to two online learning platforms, ActiveLearn Primary (ALP) and ActiveLearn Digital Service (ALDS).2. Model LessonsThroughout the training programme teachers will participate in sample lessons taken directly from the curriculum. Each session will highlight a different subject area and teachers will have opportunities to discuss and analyse the lessons together with their facilitator.3. Teaching and Learning StrategiesTeachers will also engage with key teaching and learning strategies for the following: > Active Learning: strategies that focus on student-centred activities that allow students to construct knowledge and meaning > Formative Assessment: strategies for assessing where students are in their learning and using the results to adjust instruction > Critical Thinking: strategies for promoting students’ critical thinking skills, such as evaluating, comparing and questioning. Teachers will learn and practise a variety of strategies that they will be able to apply directly to their classrooms. This Implementation training forms part of the iPLS Curriculum Subscription, and schools following this curriculum will need to undertake this training programme in their first year of their subscription. iPLS schools can also choose to retake this programme each year of their subscription.If you are not currently a school following the iPLS Curriculum, please do get in contact with your local Pearson Representative to learn more.Please click on the ‘Register/Sign In’ to register your interest in booking your iPLS Professional Development.
