Session 2: Parental engagement: using tools such as SEESAW to share learning with parents and carers

 

Parents , carers and families are by far the most important influences in a child’s life. Their support can play a vital role at all stages of education.

Digital tools available to every teacher can augment the already effective partnerships in school, by allowing simple and effective communication between parents and carers and school.

This session will look at the how tools within Glow can be used with young people and their parents or carers and how we can make use of various apps on mobile devices to share learning.

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.

The iPad is the perfect tool in the classroom to capture the learning as it happens and for our

young people to capture and reflect on their learning.

Seesaw is an app that helps you share the learning with parents in a seamless manner that brings them closer to the work of the class and of their child. Parents around the world speak positively about how it has helped them connect to the work of the school and techers feel empowered by reducing their workload in the gathering of evidence.

 

Come along to this session and see how the iPad can transform how you connect with parents and build portfolios of pupil learning.

Creativity matters. By exploring and capturing photos, students can better understand the realities of the world around them. Using the iPad camera, they learn to identify and frame compelling subjects, experiment with light and shadow, and explore all aspects of composition — from point of view to depth to symmetry.

 

In this session we’ll explore the most powerful app on the iPad – the camera. We’ll give you ideas for making best use of the camera across the curriculum and how to use the excellent teacher resources to develop creativity in your classroom.

80% of the content consumed on mobile devices is video. We want to move away from consumption and instead empower teachers and learners to be content creators using the powerful Clips and iMovie apps, built directly into the device with the same ease of use that exists in every aspect of the device.

 

Video gives students a powerful means of interpreting ideas, expressing their thoughts, and informing, influencing and inspiring their audience. Using iPad cameras along with the Everyone Can Create resources, we’ll explore the different contexts that video can be used for in the classroom and for young people to show what they know in a way which is meaningful and relevant to them,

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.

Music helps us enrich and tell more powerful stories. Learning the building blocks of verses, chorus and bridges from songs you’re already familiar with builds confidence in creating music of your own. In this session we’ll explore how the Everyone Can Create resource can help students create and sample beats, arrange tracks and record vocals. They’ll learn to develop their voice and create content and podcasts so they can open up new ways to convey themes, learning and ideas with the powerful tools freely available on iPad..
