Worcestershire Teachmeet 23rd MayThursday 12th May 2016
We have details of a great networking opportunity that will help you to demonstrate that you are an outward facing school in respect of assessment, during these uncertain times assessing the new curriculum without levels.
Following Teachmeets inaugural event in November 2015, they are again meeting with fellow Otrack users to share experiences, successes and difficulties of using this potentially very powerful assessment tool.
The meeting will take place at Birchen Coppice Primary School in Kidderminster on Monday 23rd May from 4.30-6.30pm. The post code for Birchen Coppice is DY11 7JJ.
The format will be an initial series of short presentations by teachers and school leaders currently using Otrack, and an additional presentation by James Bellamy from Otrack. Then there will be the opportunity to go into specific discussion groups for more detailed follow-up from the presentations.
James Bellamy will be presenting on deeper learning, as opposed to best-fit and he will also be showing a new version of class-track with a more spreadsheet-like layout, designed to be used more on a termly, as opposed to weekly basis.
Further presentation topics will broadly cover:
– Feeling Ofsted-ready through Otrack
– Reaching a judgement – what ‘on-track’ looks like
– Approaches to moderation of judgements
– Impact of use of specified reports
– Tracking progress of disadvantaged children
Other topics may emerge as more presenters come forward with their area of interest.
As well as inviting you to come along, we are also seeking more people willing to share 5 minutes of their knowledge and experience of Otrack.
If you would like to attend, please email Andrew Kilbride firstname.lastname@example.org, stating the names of the people attending.
If you would like to offer a presentation, please get in touch regarding the content, so he can recirculate an amended agenda nearer to 23rd May.
We look forward to welcoming you to Birchen Coppice on Monday 23rd May.
