What is Phill Cantone Edtech Consultancy?
I provide support to teachers and ES staff in understanding the potential power of iPads in the classroom, and on how to use them with efficiency and confidence.
Who I am
After completing my Masters Degree in Primary Teaching, I spent several years as a classroom teacher in a 1-1 iPad school. This opportunity allowed me to explore the various ways I could incorporate the iPad in the classroom; always remembering to engage the students as content creators rather than content consumers.
In 2015 I was lucky enough to be asked to participate in Apple’s “Towards Transformation” Program, and since 2016 I have been an Edtech coach, delivering workshops and talks, as well as mentoring individual teachers.
My workshops demonstrate how students from Prep – Year 6 can use iPads as a tool to aid their education. iPads, when used to their fullest potential, increase student engagement and learning. They also provide a platform to introduce individualised learning, and give students the opportunities to demonstrate their understandings in a thorough manner.
As a former teacher I understand the pressures teachers are under, and my workshops also share ways in which iPads can be used to increase a teacher’s efficiency and streamline various classroom processes.
