No data loggers in school, and worried about meeting the statutory requirements for primary science?

Data loggers in school, but not getting the most out of them?

  • Both these problems can be solved with this course!

The statutory requirements of the new primary national curriculum state that during years 3 and 4, children should be taught about 'making systematic and careful observations... taking accurate measurements ..using a range of equipment, including thermometers and dataloggers'

This course will explore how data loggers and other forms of digital technology can support learning in science, with a specific focus on engaging your learners and raising attainment. You will gain experience in the use of data loggers and how they can be used to support recording of data in quick and extended investigations. We will look at how they can be used in control simulations and support recording and data analysis in mathematics and science lessons, both within the classroom, and in an outside setting.

*Attendance at this course includes the option to hire our kitbox of dataloggers for a week at only £20, a significant reduction on the usual price*



You will be able to:

  • develop awareness of how data logging technology can be used to support accurate recording in science
  • gain hands-on experience of digital technology that can be used in science sessions to support learning, recording, presenting and data handling
  • develop strategies to enhance children’s independence when working through enquiries using digital technology to support them
