Participating in in-service today provided an opportunity to talk with practitioners around learning and teaching in science and share some of the ways in which Education Scotland can provide support. Issues explored included assessment and moderation, a shared understanding of standards, progression, meeting the needs of learners, transitions, using effective partnerships and keeping the curriculum alive and relevant to inspire young learners.
The following were used to exemplify support for practitioners:
Education Scotland Learning blog – sharing by the Development Officers in Education Scotland
STEM Central in Motion blog – sharing by practitioners and partners
Food for Thought leaflet and poster – we will shortly be developing the new Food Security context for STEM Central
STEM Central Learning Journeys from the Sound context, early years and first level due for publication later this month, and the draft second level journeys due for publication within the next few months
