Digital event hailed a success
29th November 2016
More than 70 people attended a special TeachMeet #TeachBites event at USW City Campus, Newport.
Organised by the Education Achievement Service and the University of South Wales, the TeachMeet-style event was led by primary and secondary teachers from the south east Wales region.
The audience of teaching staff and students enjoyed a two-hour session learning about the digital competency framework and effective pedagogy in the classroom.
Area Lead for Professional Learning Mike Cameron said: “Digital competence is crucial in the classroom. While technology plays a critical role in developing new ways of teaching and learning, it is not a substitute for high-quality teaching.
“Instead it supports learning and helps teachers engage with pupils in new and exciting ways. Children show great intuitiveness in using digital tools in the classroom and technology can help fuel their desire to learn.
“The audience also heard more about Growth Mindset, which is becoming increasingly important in schools. It’s helping to shift the mindset of pupils from one of frustration to one of success.
“It is teaching pupils that grit and determination can help them succeed and realise their ambitions.”
TeachMeet events see teachers sharing good practice, practical innovations and personal insights related to effective pedagogy.
Goytre Fawr Primary teacher Jonathan Small said: “It was a whistle-stop tour of what the future of education will look like. It was really interesting. I have learned lots of things that I will be looking to use in the classroom going forward.”
