Getting Started with SOLO Taxonomy - T103

Friday 9th January 2015

12:30 - 13:30

Location : Henley, G03

Speakers

  1. Michelle Pope - Reigate Grammar School
  2. Sarah Pannell - Lingfield Notre Dame School

Balancing the need of all learners whilst covering the breadth of the curriculum is a significant challenge in science education. SOLO taxonomy allows teachers to set differentiated learning outcomes and provide a personalised learning experience by encouraging deeper thinking. Particularly useful for promoting synthesis of concepts, it also promotes self-assessment and reflection by learners. Michelle and Sarah will introduce SOLO taxonomy and reflect on how it can improve learning in science by using examples from their classes. They will address both the theoretical basis of this pedagogy and will offer practical, take away strategies for getting started using SOLO taxonomy in your classes.

IOP - Teaching Energy in the New National Curriculum - W103

Friday 9th January 2015

12:30 - 14:00

Location : AMS, Lab G4

Speakers

  1. Charles Tracy - Institute of Physics

The statements about energy in the revised National Curriculum are quite different from those that have gone before. The changes provide an opportunity to think about more helpful ways of talking about energy with students. In this session, we will look at how to satisfy the National Curriculum and also help students.

12:45 - 14:00

Location : Exhibition Marquee, A110

Speakers

  1. Brian Ell Ph.D. - Edvotek
  2. Timstar

Feeling overwhelmed by the wide array of experiments performed in biotechnology laboratories? If so, join us for a hands-on workshop! You will explore biotechnology techniques commonly used in research labs (DNA isolation, PCR and gel electrophoresis). Once these experiments are incorporated into your curriculum, your students will be able to see how abstract concepts like genetic engineering work in a real-world context.

Education in Chemistry � at your fingertips - OC4

Friday 9th January 2015

13:00 - 13:30

Location : Exhibition Marquee, Open Conference

Biology in the Real World - Beloved Barnacles: Learning from Darwin�s Collections - T105

Friday 9th January 2015

13:30 - 14:15

Location : Palmer, 109

Speakers

  1. Miranda Lowe - Natural History Museum

Ten years after returning from the Voyage of the Beagle, Charles Darwin prepared to embark on another journey of discovery � this time of a slightly different kind. The year was 1846, and Darwin was fascinated by barnacles of all shapes and sizes. He studied their structures and life history over a period of eight years, developing a natural classification system that is still used today. We�ll examine the importance of Darwin�s collection and its relevance to a scientist of today.

Teaching Sustainability and Climate Change through Songs - T111

Friday 9th January 2015

14:00 - 16:00

Location : AMS, 135 LT

Speakers

  1. Jess Gold - Big Green Machine

Project Earth Rock is a new multi-media resource designed to enable primary school teachers to teach about sustainability and climate change through songs and animation. Engaging cross-curricular lesson plans are supported by song videos and animation and can be carried out by non-specialist classroom teachers with little preparation. This session will introduce participants to the pack and will show how it supports science and the expressive arts in the primary school classroom. Visit www.projectearthrock.com to find out more.

Gut Bugs: Drivers of Immune and Metabolic Health? - T106

Friday 9th January 2015

14:00 - 15:00

Location : Henley, G15

Speakers

  1. Dr Marie Lewis - Department of Food and Nutritional Sciences, University of Reading

The bacterial population of the small intestine develops during infancy and drives the expansion of the immune system and influences metabolism. It is becoming apparent that many immune and metabolic conditions including allergy, obesity and diabetes, can originate during early life and are linked to disrupted patterns of intestinal colonisation. Such disruption can be caused by antibiotics, formula feeding and caesarean delivery. This talk explores possible interventions which could �rescue� infants from increased risk of disease susceptibility.
