Using Assessment for Learning to help young learners achieve their goals
Putting our pupils on the path to becoming more independent and responsible learners is the goal of any good teacher. But deciding precisely how to give them proper guidance and support to this end is no easy task. In this practical session we will consider how best to use assessment for learning principles to determine learning needs and inform target setting, and how learning objectives can be used to provide feedback and support self and peer-assessment in the primary classroom. Examples will be provided of what this looks like in the context of a lesson and a course and how information from this can be used alongside other forms of assessment.
Elena Merino is a Teacher Trainer for Pearson. She spent 4 years in Ireland and in the USA, where she fell in love with the English language. PhD in Communication and Multilingual Education, she loves learning new things and collaborating with people from different contexts and cultures. In class, she’s concerned about creating meaningful real-world tasks that get students to use language in context. In her free time she loves travelling, reading, hiking and hanging out with friends and family. In the summer she enjoys taking part in outdoor activities but in the winter she can often be found just watching a TV series under a warm blanket.
As places are limited, we suggest you complete the online registration before the 12th of April.
