Summary "Teachers and pupils should be aware of the difference between infrequent mistakes that can be learned from and consistent mistakes that lead novice mathematicians onto the anxiety pathway. These sorts of mistakes are due to weak foundational knowledge that is more likely to generate errors and misconceptions." Ofsted, 2021

This interactive course will present practical strategies to support your maths learners by considering the mistakes and misconceptions commonly seen in our learning settings and in the summative assessments.

The course lays the foundations to give you the knowledge, confidence and motivation to go on to attend other phonics courses.

Manipulating and using numbers
21/01/2022 @ Online - Manipulating and using numbers (Code: C1237/004)

EdTech Accessibility Training
24/01/2022 @ Online - EdTech Accessibility Training - Intro to Assistive Tech (Code: C1334/005)

The public sector bodies accessibility regulations came into force in September 2018. They create legal obligations for further education and higher education organisations to "meet the accessibility requirement".

But the "accessibility requirement" is a technical suite of web standards that many find difficult to translate to every day teaching and learning. Therefore many colleges, training centres and even universities have a large legal risk. This risk grows as students become more aware of their legal entitlement to barrier-free digital content.


Assessment in English: knowing your learners' starting points
24/01/2022 @ Online - Assessment in English: knowing your learners' starting points (Code: C1270/004)

This course considers strategies for identifying gaps, and areas that learners struggle with, to use as a starting point for their learning. English learners tend to be returning learners that don't wish to sit the qualifications in this subject again. By pinpointing these specific areas of difficulty, we can aim to make their learning experience different for them. Providing learners with a metacognitive understanding of their learning, so they are able to decipher what works for them, is invaluable to their experience.
