Using technology for feedback & assessment

Are you teaching from home whilst self-isolating?

Are you teaching to more than one group to cover colleagues?

Are you delivering hybrid teaching to both learners in school and at home at the same time?

Do you want to improve your formative and summarise assessment skills when teaching remotely?

Primary outcome: participants to develop evidence-informed strategies linking feedback and technology to improve workload and feedback quality.

In a digital age, it is important to take advantage of what technology can bring to assessment and feedback. Using the latest EEF Guidance Report on Feedback we will look at tools and methods which allow teachers and learners to benefit from feedback that is timely, interactive and retrievable. 

Using technology to support literacy

Primary Outcome: Participants to understand how technology can be used to improve students’ literacy using the latest guidance on disciplinary literacy from the EEF. 

The EEF is clear that students’ literacy is a key factor in determining their success across the curriculum and that it should be explicitly embedded into all subjects. We will identify how technology can be used to make addressing the EEF’s 7 literacy recommendations more efficient, accessible and successful.
