Science through a global lens REPEATED - W18

Thursday 5th January 2017

12:00 - 13:30

Speakers

  1. Elena Lengthorn - Lengthorn Education
  2. Kevin Bailey - Global Learning Programme

We will focus on KS2/KS3 science through a global lens, including links between science and the NC, explaining how global themes in science enhance learner outcomes. It will focus on five different practical investigations: Zeer pots, solar lighting, litre of light, fuel efficient stoves and entamophagy. Outcomes of enthused, motivated teachers who identify how well science and global learning compliment each other.

Teaching controversial issues post-16 REPEATED - W165

Thursday 5th January 2017

12:00 - 13:00

Speakers

  1. Dr Vanessa Kind - Durham University

The session reports on a Wellcome Trust-funded project at Durham University. Data illustrating post-16 students' scientific knowledge and ethical viewpoints pre- and post-participation in "law-in-action" role-plays focusing on these controversial issues will be presented. An opportunity to experience the activities and a role-play is available in a separate workshop session.

Teaching and learning of kinematics graphs - T25

Thursday 5th January 2017

12:00 - 13:00

Speakers

  1. Itumeleng (Happy) Phage

Introductory physics at university require students to do practical, i.e., do experiments in the laboratory on kinematics. From the data they collected they have to sketch kinematics graphs and interpret the results based on the shape and variable of the graph drawn. For successful interpretation of the graph and results, they have to use the knowledge and skill of linear algebraic graphs and function/equation. The discussion is about how students fail to recognise the similarity between kinematic and algebraic graphs.

Climate change and sustainability - primary - W22

Thursday 5th January 2017

12:00 - 13:00

Speakers

  1. Jane Fieldsend - University of Reading

Climate Change and sustainability are very topical issues at the moment covering both the global and local dimensions .Young people are very interested in this topic. However there is very little on this area in the primary curriculum but the topic fits into not only science but links to many other subject areas including history, languages, art and maths. Climate Change and sustainability can therefore be incorporated as a cross curricular theme. .This workshop investigates innovative activities and ideas for use in the primary classroom alongside developing awareness and social responsibility in those they teach.
