The final word from Laura Macnamara, who teaches Year 1 and is the ICT Co-Ordinator at Berrycoombe Primary School, Bodmin, Cornwall, England, today she shares how my help has made life after the lesson is over much easier as well.
“Not only has Mrs Blossom helped me with planning my lessons, interacting with the children during my lessons, but she has also showed me how to use my SMARTBoard to do post lesson assessments and evidence. Assessment isn’t just ticklists anymore, a much more holistic approach is needed. The course conveyed this well and gave me some ideas about how I could use the files I created and the notes made on them during lessons for assessment purposes. Mainly I could see how I could look back at the files in order to inform my planning for the next lesson.
