Led by Dr Sarah Younie, Editor of the Technology, Pedagogy journal and Professor of Education Innovation, De Montfort University, with Professor Christina Preston, TPEA outgoing chair and John Sibbald, TPEA Knowledge Exchange
Thursday 23rd January, 16:50 – 17:20 in the Education Show Theatre
This session by Technology, Pedagogy and Education Association (TPEA) members will explain how teachers as co-researchers have investigated digital technologies in order to customise their teaching techniques and make more accurate assessments of pupils’ learning interests and progress. The talk featuring the iCatalyst professional development programme, will present findings from a variety of members’ research projects that have been funded by associate companies and led by TPEA researchers.
Teachers who engage in iCatalyst enjoy free professional development experience that supports them in analysing the value and the drawbacks of technologies in their classroom and across the school. Funding associates use the findings to improve their products and services: Special Educational Needs (SEN) will be a key focus in findings from iCatalyst projects with the Greater Manchester Digital Talent Pipeline, BJDEducation, IRIS Connect and Learning by Questions. Join us to consider whether this mode of professional learning is viable for you.
