Secondary national strategy and la areas of focus for 2009 10

Secondary National Strategy and LA areas of focus for 2009/10

  • APP

  • Developing student’s “Functionality”

  • “Narrowing the Gap”

  • Future KS4 curriculum pathways and awards


Session 1 securing and embedding app practice

Session 1: Securing and embedding APP practice

  • APP progress in this LA

  • The LA model for APP in ICT

  • Activity 1: self evaluation of APP progression using progression gridAction plan for APP embedding


App publication going to plan

APP publication: “Going to Plan”

  • What distinction is to be made between “designing” and “planning” ?

  • What different forms of “planning” activities currently occur in ICT schemes of work ?

  • “Going to Plan”: an aid to developing “planning” activities in ICT


Activity 2

Activity 2

  • Select one of the Framework “sub-strands” Consider a sequence of lessons this aspect of the curriculumWhat sort of “planning” activities might you implement in lessons?

  • How / when would these activities be revisited within the Unit of work

  • Design templates for students to supporta) a planning activity andb) evaluative reflection of the activity


Feedback

Feedback

  • What “sub-strand” provides the curriculum focus?

  • What planning activities are proposed?

  • With what template?

  • How and when would this planning be revisited?

  • With what template?


Af1 at higher levels

“AF1” at higher Levels

“AF1” (planning and evaluation) at L6 are strongly linked to performance at KS4+

L6 “AF1” requires students to address:

  • success criteria and use of feedback

  • planning for efficiency and integration

    What do these terms mean in PowerPoint?

    Where do they appear in Framework?

L6 af1 success criteria

L6 Af1 : “Success Criteria”

  • Students evaluate their own work against success criteria with attention to

    • efficiency

    • integration

  • and make use of feedback


Activity 3

Activity 3:

What does efficiency and integration mean in different contexts?

  • What contexts within the ICT curriculum might be appropriate?(flipchart)

  • How would Level 6 planning for efficiency and integration be evidenced (captured)?


Feedback from activity 3

Feedback from Activity 3


Qcda standards files

QCDA “Standards Files”

  • What examples of Level 6 AF1 are presented in “Standards File B”?

  • What exemplification of Level 7 AF1 are included in “Standards File F”?

  • And Level 8 AF1 in “Standards File E”?


Pupil e level 8

Pupil E: level 8

Headlines from the “Standards File”

  • Pupil E’s teacher designed an open-ended problem-solving activity which allows pupils to design and implement an integrated ICT-based system.

  • The teacher provided an end-user to define the requirements of the system, and to provide feedback during the course of the project.

  • Pupil E is able to develop a solution to meet the needs of an end-user and shows sufficient command of ICT tools and techniques to develop an appropriate system.

  • Pupil E has taken the needs of the user into account and has met those needs by developing an appropriate solution.

Curricular targets

Challenge from SLT

Relentless focus on gap narrowing

Aim for stretch targets


Tracking

Tracking

  • What are the purposes of tracking(Not to just provide end of year data!)

  • Effective tracking requires regular, scheduled analysis and action

    “Data without analysis is blind

    Analysis without action is lame”


Example of tracking with impact

Setting curricular targets

Setting curricular targets

  • What do we understand by the term “curricular targets”?

  • How does this relate to APP?

  • How does it relate to KS4 and KS5?


Curricular targets

Curricular Targets

  • A curricular target expresses in words (not numbers) a specific aspect of the curriculum as a focus for improvement

  • It can be

    • for a whole class, a group or individual pupil

    • can relate to the long, medium or short term


Activity 4

Activity 4

  • Look at the extract from Standards File “Pupil C”

  • Use the Framework of Learning Objectives and Handout 2.2 to

    • identify gaps in the pupil’s capability (AF1, AF2 and AF3)

    • identify Learning Objectives to close these gap

    • phrase a curricular target in terms suitable for sharing with students


Feedback1

Feedback

  • What curricular targets might you be setting on the basis of “Pupil C”?

  • How might you support students’ progress against these targets?

  • How might you monitor this progress?


Assessment criteria

Assessment criteria

  • Curricular targets need to be communicated to students using criteria that are

    • clear

    • specific

    • meaningful

    • purposeful
