As part of the new Ofsted framework, which was introduced earlier this year, teachers will be expected to demonstrate personalised teaching that is based on a pupil’s individual requirements, and schools will be expected to demonstrate how appropriate strategies have impacted on learning. ePace allows teachers to identify areas, such as literacy, that a child may be struggling with. Once both the teacher and pupil understand how best the individual learns, this information can be used to tailor teaching methods, ensuring that the pupil understands what is being taught and is able to reach their full potential while fulfilling the new Ofsted requirements.
Recognising that effective teaching leads to better results, ePace will be showcasing its full range of teacher resources, check lists and strategies at The Education Show to inspire and assist teachers in their lesson planning and teaching approaches. Along with this, visitors to the stand can also see new interactive elements, such as online video tutorials and social networking, which are helping a community of teachers and professionals to interact with and learn from one another. Users can join in with the educational community via the blog (http://www.epaceonline.com/
Mary Blake, ex-teacher and Educational Consultant at ePace, comments: “We are extremely excited to be exhibiting at The Education Show and to have the opportunity to demonstrate just how useful ePace can be to teachers and learners in order to provide personalised learning.
“ePace looks at how children learn, rather than simply what they are learning. With the implementation of the new Ofsted framework and in the changing educational market where schools are becoming more autonomous, budgets are being cut and teachers are under increased pressure to produce results, this is more important than ever. Educational assessments can be very subjective, however, by using these results along with a child’s ePace profile, teachers can gauge rounded information about the child to ensure that they are taught in a way that encourages them to reach their full potential. Effective teaching and planning helps teachers to bring the best out in every pupil, and involving the child in the learning process helps them become partners of learning, rather than just recipients of knowledge.”
Along with discounts, promotions and treats, visitors to the stand will also have the chance to win a free ePace licence for their school for a year! ePace staff will also be on hand to answer any queries, demonstrate the online profiling tool and talk through what the learner profile shows.
