CategoryEffective Use of Technology to Support the Processes of Teaching and Learning

Computing at Primary: Practical & Achievable

The Computing curriculum at Primary is an area that has been shrouded in subject knowledge and technical difficulties for many schools over the past few years. We aim to streamline the approach, opening it up to the many non tech-specialist teachers across the country, offering our own interpretation of the multitude of resources out there. We expand on the broad aims of the national curriculum, interpret the work of the National Centre for Computing Education, and add our own Click & Go style resources to make this subject work for the masses.

Come along to this quick-burst event that will showcase our approach and answer your questions.

It guarantees to save staff time and effort across their busy working weeks, while opening up inspiring opportunities for children.

The session is free to attend via the EdTech Demonstrators Programme. It is due to run as a quick-burst 45-minute session, but there will be scope for extended Q+A for those who would like to use the opportunity.

All sessions are free to attend via the DfE's EdTech Demonstrator Programme. When signing up for training events, attendees from state-maintained educational settings in England are providing consent to be registered in the EdTech Demonstrator Programme.

Demonstrator(s)Digital Learning Cornwall - Aspire Academy Trust (Mount Hawke Academy)
CategoryEffective Use of Technology to Support the Processes of Teaching and Learning

Seneca Learning is a piece of freely accessible software that allows children to consolidate and revise their learning at Key Stage 2 and above.

 

The programme taps into recently emphasised concepts such as knowledge retrieval, self-reliance and meta-cognition within a motivating, child-led environment.

 

Seneca is a useful tool for teachers looking to differentiate and extend within class groups, while providing revision-style learning to help children retain and build knowledge. Maths is a standout element, though other curriculum areas are available as well - some of it for free.

 

This session will provide a broad overview of how to set up Seneca learning for your class or classes; demonstrate what children will experience as they use the product; and explain some of the analytics options that are available to teachers.

 

 

 

Join this session to find out more about how to integrate the program successfully, including combining.

13:30 - No Hype Strategy - Making EdTech really work for schools

Specialisms Strategy Strategy
CategoryStrategic Leadership and Creating Change

The Covid pandemic has shone a light on the potential for EdTech to improve teaching & learning for both teachers and children.

So what can we take away from it all? What are the major pitfalls, red herrings, and points of caution as we pivot back to more normal circumstances? Which products and approaches are genuinely going to integrate into high-quality practice in your school or MAT?

This overview session draws on many years of experience and hard-won progress implementing EdTech systems – both hardware and software – across schools and MATs.

Both the pedagogical angle and technical side will be discussed, including how to make medium to long-term strategic choices; recommendations for introducing new systems; how to draw on the experiences of staff as you implement EdTech over the coming years.

There will also be scope for discussion / extended Q+A to suit attendees.

Giles Hill, delivering the session, is an experienced teacher with a background in evaluative tech journalism and multimedia design. He believes that any worthwhile route forward with EdTech needs to be grounded in actual classroom practice and an acute awareness of the demands of teaching classes full of busy children.

A follow-up session detailing infrastructure requirements and further technical discussion will run on the following day.

 

All sessions are free to attend via the DfE's EdTech Demonstrator Programme. When signing up for training events, attendees from state-maintained educational settings in England are providing consent to be registered in the EdTech Demonstrator Programme.

We will offer a quick, introductory meeting should you wish to take the FREE DfE-funded opportunities further and tailor it to your own school and staff circumstances – we can offer bespoke, in-depth support and CPD tailored to your staff needs.
