Welcome to this ninth episode of the The Future Tech for Education Series on The Edtech Podcast, supported by Pearson

What's in this episode?

With technology, teachers actually sometimes see less student work than they do with a traditional worksheet. How can resources developers best communicate about students' work to teachers? What instructional decisions do teachers make for which it is helpful to have data to answer? Are data points useful beyond intervention alone? What do teachers actually seek from data and how it is presented, without adding to existing workload? What latest design methods of communicating information can be used to feedback student performance to teachers whilst maintaining the agency of all stakeholders? Is the data-dashboard here to stay? Or, is there another way?

My Story

I’ve just released details of my fundraiser for Homerton Hospital. I’ll be cycling 720km from coast to coast across France using the so-called Pyrenean Raid route in May. That means multiple Tour de France climbs with no stomach muscles to my name. 

If that sounds like a challenge you'd like to support you can text NELL47 then the amount - say £10 or £1000 pounds (!) - to 70070. It’s all for an amazing cause and to support Homerton Hospital’s maternity team and neurological, paediatric and child health research. More here
