The course was good for providing creative and practical strategies and is very helpful in defining and evaluating the role of an ICT coordinator."
I am currently not attached to a classroom but from my previous experience with Investigative Science, it showed me that it is a process which enables all students to see Science as an area of learning, which they are able to participate in, as it involves observation and experimentation to describe and explain natural phenomena which they are often naturally inquisitive about. I was challenged to redefine my approach when teaching Science. I gained understanding of how Investigative Science lends itself to all aspects of the Science curriculum and the need to take small steps in order to achieve the desired learning outcomes . I also understood how Investigative Science was able to differentiate and involve all students in the classroom thus enabling all students to become thinkers and involved in the scientific process. I would highly recommend this PD to other schools who are grappling with Investigative Science or would like to introduce this concept of learning to all teachers, whether experienced or not. The presenter was well spoken, engaged her audience with practical activities and listened to all the questions asked, responding with answers which clearly displayed her knowledge and understanding. A very passionate and motivated speaker.
Maggie provided relevant and up to date materials. The course was very relaxed with flexibility built into the day so that we could plan and swap resources."
Input from the consultant was pitched at the right level to engage all learners. Children were motivated and excited by their learning. Staff now feel confident to embed the good practice demonstrated by the consultant. The quality of teaching was excellent. The consultant provided advice about structuring follow up activities. This is the third time I have worked with the consultant and I would recommend her input.
Course leader was outstanding – providing practical strategies and creative ideas."
