Effective primary science: What does the academic research tell us? LIMITED
Limited Capacity seats available

This talk will share ideas from academic literature about effective primary science education. We will focus on issues of both curriculum and pedagogy, including hands-on, minds-on science enquiry, cross-curricular science, science as a series of stories, talk for learning (including argumentation), misconceptions and conceptual change, and models and representations. Participants will depart with not only a range of classroom strategies but a deeper understanding of why they might be effective and greater knowledge to help them evaluate the strategies they currently use. In line with the best practice in professional development, the audience will be expected to be hands-on, minds-on too!
