Event Resources

We are pleased to be able to bring you a number of resources from some of our recent events.

Advancing Education Autumn 2011

In this edition of Advancing Education Fiona Aubrey-Smith considers the evolution of Technology for Learning, taking us into the realms of Web 3.0. Amrit Pal Kaur of the University of Adelaide presents an exploratory study of trainee science teachers attitudes to use of certain ICT tools while Pete Bradshaw and Sarah Younie explore trainee teachers engagement in a cross-curricular news project. There are important lessons in both papers.

We also have papers on the integration of technology into the learning experience. Andrew Lickley reports on a YHGfL project using QR codes and PSPs with primary children at the Dales Countryside Museum while Dr Arjette Karemaker explores the use of Clicker to support early learning and literacy. Also, Steve Higgins reflects on how to integrate multi-touch technology in classrooms at Durham University.

There is still much debate on ICT which may filter through to policy makers. Bob Harrison offers his views on the changing landscape of ICT in schools and reports on a Westminster Education Forum debate and a TDA Music technology event.

There is light at the end of the tunnel, a theme taken up by Richard Smith, who offers some useful pointers for the many of us taking our first faltering steps in the new world of freelance school improvement. And finally, in our sponsoring partners section there are articles on MOBI, TextHelp and Espresso Primary.

Assessing and Reporting Progress in Computing Without Levels

From 1 September 2014 the subject of “ICT” will be renamed “Computing” and it will have a new Programme of Study to outline the skills children should acquire at Key Stages 1-4. Whilst the requirement to assess and report on children’s progress and attainment will remain, the framework of National Curriculum Levels as a device for doing so will not. Some schools welcome the move away from levelling work (and thus labelling children), while others are more hesitant; there are equally strong arguments for doing away with levels as for keeping them. Either way, schools need to decide how their teachers will report meaningfully on their pupils’ progress. Following on from that, how will standards be compared nationally? Does the removal of Levels signal the end of league tables? How will schools know whether their pupils are achieving and progressing at an appropriate rate? How will schools know whether their pupils’ needs are being met?


Naace Career Meet and Greet

Career Development Meet and Greet

This is your opportunity to find people and organisations who can help your career. Partners of Naace - companies, higher education institutions, assessment bodies and other organisations who use freelance Assessors, Trainers, Consultants or Representatives - will be on hand. As you circulate amongst their tables you will be able to find people you wish to talk to during the conference and gather information on ways to develop your career - or even find a job!

As the need for schools to demonstrate impact grows, Naace members increasingly need to build their portfolio of expertise and accreditation. Start the Conference by discovering the diverse opportunities.

(For those wishing to meet potential Assessors, Trainers, Consultants or Representatives we ask that you produce a brief statement listing the kinds of people you employ freelance, part-time or full-time, the expertise you require them to have, and training and accreditation you provide. The intention of this meet and greet is to enable you to identify people with whom to have longer discussions during the exhibition period the following day.)
