Assessment Without Levels - BC16

Saturday 10th January 2015

10:00 - 12:00

Location : AMS, 133

Speakers

  1. Ed Walsh - Cornwall Learning

The requirement to report on pupil progress using levels has been dropped; however, teachers will want to ensure that pupils are making good progress and likely to secure good grades at the end of KS4. This course will explore how outcomes can be identified and evidence used to track progress. It is not only the Programme of Study that should influence the design of any system used but also the skills and concepts needed to embark on KS4 courses.

iPad for Science - BC17

Saturday 10th January 2015

10:00 - 12:00

Location : AMS, Lab 166

Speakers

  1. Jon Scott - Stormfront

A hands-on workshop looking at ways in which iPad may be employed as a powerful tool the teaching laboratory. The activities will give delegates first hand experience of putting together a practical report using a range of different media including data collection, graphical analysis, audio and video recordings, and several different types of animation. We shall also look at how reports may be shared and marked electronically and some options for integrating iPad into a school�s existing network.

Science on a Shoestring - W84

Saturday 10th January 2015

10:00 - 11:00

Location : AMS, Lab G4

Speakers

  1. Linda Scott - Worcester University
  2. Phil Collins

Great ideas for Biology, Chemistry and Physics practical work without expensive kit. University of Worcester trainee teachers, ex-trainees and mentors will demonstrate how everyday materials can be used effectively to illustrate scientific concepts in the classroom or lab. Some activities will be interactive and participants will be given a free booklet of further practical ideas.

Case Study: Letter X - A Pre-school Curriculum for Literacy/Science Lessons - W86

Saturday 10th January 2015

10:00 - 11:00

Location : Palmer, 105

Speakers

  1. Gabriela-Alexandra Banica - Bricks 4 Kidz

The Bricks 4 Kidz pre-school curriculum is a source for meaningful literacy/science lessons. Take the letter X... In the Bricks 4 Kidz pre-school curriculum, letter X is presented through models built out of LEGO: a xylophone model for upper case X; and an X-ray model for lower case X.

Saturday 10th January 2015

10:00 - 12:00

Location : Chemistry, Lab 1

Speakers

  1. Alan Pickwick

Easy enough for the beginner, tough enough for the accomplished teacher, the workshop will cover the Astronomy and Cosmology found at A-level. It will emphasise daytime laboratory work and provide worksheets. You can view printed resources and excellent downloadable software. There will be a critical appraisal of the UK robotic telescopes and a chance to share experiences. A small Meade �goto� telescope will be available to experiment with � the ideal school ��1000� project. Come along. No question too simple!

Embedding Practical Solutions for Creative Outdoor Learning in the New Curriculum - T140

Saturday 10th January 2015

10:30 - 11:30

Location : Henley, 101

Speakers

  1. Dr Paul Davies - Institute of Education, University of London
  2. Ruth Amos - Institute of Education, University of London

The new science curriculum presents exciting possibilities to engage students in learning science outside of the classroom, especially through both an inquiry focus and within the �Working Scientifically� strand. However, making the best use of these opportunities can be challenging. Drawing on work we have done with student teachers, we will consider why learning outside the classroom is important and present strategies, with resources to take away, which support this in a range of settings in and around schools.

Measuring Planck's Constant - T141

Saturday 10th January 2015

10:30 - 11:30

Location : Palmer, G06

Speakers

  1. Greg Dick - Perimeter Institute
  2. Kevin Donkers - Perimeter Institute

Saturday 10th January 2015

10:30 - 11:30

Location : Henley, G03

Speakers

  1. Research Specialist Group - ASE

Many teachers now undertake Action Research as part of their professional development. Action Research as an indicator of their professionalism. This coordinated poster session of completed work, or work in progress, will demonstrate topics that can be explored, methods that can be used, and significant outcomes that affect the researcher's classroom, and potentially other delegates, too. After a short introduction, you will be free to engage in deep conversation with the poster producers, and meet some members of the ASE Research Specialist Group, on hand to give advice and support.
