Using data loggers and digital technology in primary science NY011
Explore how data loggers and other forms of digital technology can support learning in science.
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 lessons.
This CPD will also allow you to explore various forms of digital technology and their applications for use in science. We will look at educational apps, recording, presenting and data handling software and examine how these tools can be used independently by the children to support their own learning
This is a residential course, fees include meals and accommodation for the duration of the course.
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
