The Assessment Editor will explain how you can ensure that your pupils have a secure understanding of the key concepts and are ready to progress from KS3. The model is adaptable for those who wish to use levels, grades or comments only as well as having formative and summative purposes and various models of progression will be presented.

No More Ticker Timers! - W06

Thursday 8th January 2015

10:30 - 11:30

Location : AMS, Lab G8

Speakers

  1. Barry Hawkins - Data Harvest

Demonstration of why ticker timers should be consigned to history. Get more from your time with time and motion. Less time making it work, more time showing why. More practical for less time, better results for less apparatus, better learning from focused teaching. If you have your own iPad or WiFi laptop to use, install the easy sense app and share the data

STEM Study Visits: Expedition Iceland - T18

Thursday 8th January 2015

10:30 - 11:30

Location : Carrington, 101

Speakers

  1. Wayne Jarvis - Science Learning Centre Central Consortia

Every year the network of Science Learning Centres run a STEM study visit to Iceland. The aim is to provide participants with the opportunity to conduct a STEM subject field work project in a remote environment and experience a different approach to practical activities. The visit also provides experience of an area of the natural world which has recently been at the centre of a number of STEM relevant stories. From earthquakes to Mars training, Iceland is a destination that can bring STEM subjects to life in the classroom! Discover the wide variety of field projects teachers carry out on the expedition, and find out the impact it has for themselves and the schools they teach at.

The Elusive Indigenous Perspective - T20

Thursday 8th January 2015

10:30 - 11:30

Location : AMS, LT 135

Speakers

  1. Dr Gregory Smith - Charles Darwin University

This paper presents an analysis of the perceptions of an �indigenous perspective� through science concepts and indigenous perspective concept maps and mind maps. These maps were analysed for their relational constructs using a network theory approach. Concepts were drawn from six interrelated areas of Western science: seasons and weather, astronomy, plants, animals, resources, and ecology. The results indicate that an indigenous perspective is a complex web construction of inter-related knowledge between Western science knowledge, indigenous knowledge and knowledge application.

Science Opens Doors: Careers from Science - T19

Thursday 8th January 2015

10:30 - 11:30

Location : Chemistry, LT G

Speakers

  1. Clive Thompson CBE - The Horners' Company
  2. Dr Barry Maunders/ Dr Michael O'Brien - The Horners' Company

This unique project links classroom science with careers from science. Based upon APSIRES research, primary school pupils and their parents are brought together im the classroom to perform simple scientific activities, and are given information about science-based careers and the vital part that science plays in everyone's lives.
