Teaching, Learning and Assessment at Heathfield
Expect Excellence: Collaboration and Sharing of resources and ideas
Checking understanding and addressing misconceptions are a vital part of teaching and learning.
Mini-plenaries and end of lesson/topic mini-assessments are key in taking the learning to the next stage. ‘Low stakes’ testing not only provides students with instant feedback but can build confidence (important in the lead up to the exam period). Results that can be displayed graphically and anonymously are really powerful and engaging tools and there are many ways to do this using digital devices.
A good website which details some options and gives good tutorials can be found here https://blogs.glowscotland.org.uk/fa/ICTFalkirkPrimaries/pupil-response-devices/.
My personal favourites include ‘Kahoot’, ‘Socrative’, ‘Plickers’ and good old ‘google docs’. If you would like help setting any of these up, please see LBT.
