We are organising a workshop in late November/early December!
We are seeking Reception and Year 1 teachers who are interested in trying out new approaches to teaching and learning. You will have the opportunity to participate in a professional development workshop at the Open University to discuss and agree on a set of mobile applications to be tested with your pupils for raising standards in maths. The workshop will last half-day in late November/early December 2017. Travelling will be covered by the organisers and complimentary lunch and coffee/tea will be provided.
If you would like more information please contact us email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org.
mEvaluate will provide robust evidence about the impact of selected mobile maths applications on the learning and development of 5-years old and produce a research-based evaluation framework. This will be achieved through a mixed methods methodology working in a participatory manner with participating teachers and researchers. A public engagement strategy will ensure findings of the study will reach diverse audiences.
Proposed contributions to knowledge:
- This study will fill a gap in literature by providing robust evidence about the impact of selected mobile maths applications on the learning and development of 5-years old.
- Teachers will be able to showcase their best practice to colleagues and contribute to the creation of a research-based evaluation framework to be used by teachers and parents.
- App developers will be able to support the design of maths apps on evidence based practice.
The project is funded by British Academy through a highly competitive scheme. More information can be found here.
Can I take part in the study? Teachers of pupils aged 5 years old who use iPads/tablets for teaching and learning can take part in the project. Email: email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org
