Registrations close: Mon 2th August 5pm
Target audience: Primary Teachers
Abstract: Discovering what students know while they’re still in the process of learning it—can be tricky, but data is useless unless it is used. When we collect and examine formative assessments, we need to use what we learn from them to inform instruction. All of those data points tell us something we can use to provide timely feedback, adjust instruction, and plan ahead. This session offers some practical, formative assessment and feedback tools which you can use daily in the classroom to ensure that you target your instruction to your students' point of need and adjust your practice to help student's maximise their learning.
Presenter: Brooke Brennan
Brooke is the the Mathematics and School Data Coordinator at St Francis of Assisi in Mill Park, the largest Catholic Primary school in Australia. She began her career as a senior primary teacher and became particularly interested in how students can become the best mathematicians they can be and helping them see that Mathematics is more than content and skill, it is lifelong learning. She has since taught juniors, seniors and even high school Mathematics. Her passion for data literacy & leadership, school improvement and assessment which drives improved student outcomes is underpinned by a growth based pedagogy and the firm belief that given the right conditions and support, every student can learn. She aims to help teachers become confident in making data informed decisions that can show real impact on their school contexts. It is her strong belief that this occurs best when conversation amongst teachers is about their own students and I use a variety of dialogue data practices to scaffold and transform data practice. She firmly believes that no matter the subject, collaboration between teachers is paramount.
