Drawing encourages the mind to observe the world more closely, consider how things are put together and how they work. It lets students articulate concepts that exist only in their imaginations, in ways words just can’t. In this session we’ll explore the Everyone Can Create resources can help students learn skills like balance and symmetry, making lines, shapes, shading, colour and texture so they can illustrate with word art, doodling, portraits and logo design.

Inch View Primary School

The iPad has a whole host of features that you can utilise to develop scientific enquiry. Science is all about discovery. The iPad allows students the tools to be able to observe, explore and document what is happening in their world. By using the camera, audio and animation facilities built into the iPad we will learn in this session how to help pupils tell science stories and journal their observations about the world around them. We’ll burst balloons and slo-mo our slinkies to develop our curious and questioning human nature.

Session 3: Formative Assessment using GLOW tools

From quizzes and polls to gathering evidence of learning as it happens, you’ll see why digital solution have a powerful part to play in your classroom. Formative assessment is so crucial in our classrooms and we’ll show you ways to ask the right questions in a way in which everyone can contribute and be seen. You’ll be able to see in real time if learning is happening and where the gaps are in pupil understanding.

Attendees will be exposed to a range of formative assessment tools to capture the learning of young people to inform next steps and give them feedback. They will be able to see and use fun, engaging apps and websites that can help stimulate the feedback loop in a way that reduces workload but generates powerful evidence.
