Using an Online Resource to Promote Knowledge and Understanding of science - W34

Friday 9th January 2015

09:30 - 10:30

Location : Palmer, 101 PC

Speakers

  1. David Kaplan - SAS Curriculum Pathways

SAS Curriculum Pathways is a free-to-use online teaching and learning resource, promoting the uptake of STEM subjects in further and higher education. The resource has been developed in the US over a number of years and has been successful for three main reasons. Commitment to teachers: SAS Curriculum Pathways works in the classroom in large part because teachers have shaped every phase of the planning and production process. Focus on content: Teachers, developers, designers, and other specialists clarify content in the core disciplines. Content difficult to convey with conventional methods is targeted - topics where doing and seeing provide information and encourage insights in ways that textbooks cannot. Approach to technology: SAS Curriculum Pathways make learning more profound and efficient, not simply more engaging. Audio, visual, and interactive components all reinforce the learning objectives identified by teachers. This session will enable participants to register for the resource and give them hands-on experience of using the resource.

10:00 - 11:00

Location : Henley, 102

Speakers

  1. William Hirst

Science is a foreign language, just as foreign as French or German - no wonder that pupils lose interest in Science! I will show that pupils need to be familiar with more words in the language of science at KS3 than they learn for French at GCSE. I will also present myriad ideas for word games that complement any scheme of work and will increase pupil understanding.
