Preparing for GCSE Success Using Effective KS3 Assessment - T17

Thursday 8th January 2015

10:30 - 11:30

Location : Palmer, 107

Speakers

  1. Dr Andy Chandler-Grevatt - Oxford University Press

The new KS3 National Curriculum has brought with it challenges for assessment. This session explores the assessment model adopted by OUP�s Activate Scheme of Work. 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.

Better Practicals, Better Learning: Improve your Skills (Hands-On!) (Repeated) - D01

Identification of GMOs using PCR - W05

Thursday 8th January 2015

11:00 - 12:30

Location : Exhibition Marquee, A110

Speakers

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

For centuries, man has used selective breeding and conventional hybridization to produce desirable qualities and to increase crop yields.Today, scientists use genetic engineering to directly manipulate the DNA, quickly producing these desirable traits. Due to controversy, some companies have decided to remove GMOs from their foods. In this workshop, snack food DNA is extracted and analyzed using the PCR and Gel Electrophoresis.

Think Physics: Using Physics to Inspire Young People - T22

Thursday 8th January 2015

11:00 - 12:00

Location : Henley, 101

Speakers

  1. Dr Carol Davenport - Think Physics @ Northumbria University

Think Physics is an innovative, cradle-to-career project aimed at using physics to inspire young people, particularly women, into Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) disciplines. The project is led by Northumbria University in North East England. In this session, you will find out about some of the activities that Think Physics is using to inspire children from primary to post-16, and how we are supporting parents and teachers. You will also take away some great ideas that you can use in your classroom.
