Speakers

  1. Richard Perring - Devon Secondary Teacher Training Group/South Dartmoor Community College

How are you making questioning more mathematical for your KS3 students in light of the new curriculum? How do you show that your KS3 students have a secure understanding of mathematical concepts and can securely calculate results? This practical workshop will look at strategies for enhancing mathematical understanding . Drawing on research, classroom practice and the perception of what maths is, you will leave with resources and enthusiasm to make a significant difference to delivering the maths when working scientifically.

Children Owning Assessment - T40

Thursday 8th January 2015

Speakers

  1. Chris Smith - Essex Education Services -Target Tracker

John Hattie�s research shows that one of biggest factors involved in accelerating progress is children having ownership of their assessments illustrated in Visual Learning In line with this research, Essex County Council through its Target Tracker development has produced the Test Analysis Suite. This session will illustrate how schools have implemented this system and show the impact it has on children�s learning and progress. �TAS is all about you and how you feel you did� Yr6 pupil.

Optical Fibre Telecommunications - BC05

Thursday 8th January 2015

14:00 - 16:00

Location : AMS, Lab G6

Speakers

  1. Dr David Ward - Greater Manchester STEM Centre

You may think that Optical Fibre Technology is an invention of the 21st Century - this session (with some updating!) has been run at the Annual Meeting over 4 decades! ASE members worked with British Telecom staff in the 1980's to produce a simple introduction to Optical Fibre Telecoms. Many years on we still offer this course to folks who would like to find out about the simpler aspects of Optical Fibre technology. You will make - or at least start making - a demonstration optical fibre kit that introduces the rudiments of the topic. (If you haven't soldered electronic components to pcb boards before please arrive 40 mins prior to the advertised time for an intro to soldering techniques.)

Science Teaching: What Works? - T33

14:00 - 15:00

Location : Palmer, 106

Speakers

  1. Stuart Naylor - Millgate House Education
  2. Jo Moules - Millgate House Education

Teaching isn�t an evidence-based profession in the same way as medicine is. However that doesn�t mean that we should ignore whatever evidence is available. This thought-provoking session lifts the lid on what really works in the classroom and how we know. It draws on extensive research evidence of successful classroom practice, but focuses on the practicalities of science teaching and learning.

IBL Workshop: Maths and Science for Life - W18
