NCET
Jean Beck and Margaret Danby (slides available)

NCET needs ITTE help to identify developments

Agenda for '93
Peter Seaborne - Last engagement - retiring.
No surprise that IT has reduced statement in CATE 2 - IT was anomalous in CATE 1.
520,000 computers in school growing 100,000 pa, drop off 10,000.
Progression issues will surface.

Draft IT in Maths report
Logo more mechanistic in secondary than primary.
Spreadsheets not used much but some imagination.
Lack of challenge and progression in Secondary.  More confidence but less use in Secondary!

Observed uses:
WP 36%
D & P 20%
Data handling 13%
Control 10%
Logo 8%

Secondary IT use very variable.  Mismatch between policy and reality.
WP lot going on - almost can be left alone.
Data handling - little thinking.
Schools need help from ITTE institutions in LMS future.

Not much on modelling and IT applications in ITTE institutions.
Students need more support for planning and debriefing the use of IT in school-based work.
Students new to IT need to put through the pain barrier rather than the Cook's tour.

• Don't winge.
• Tell DFE how 2.3.27 should be interpreted pre-emptively.
• School-based experience not adequate for IT because vagaries of school provision: scope for institution-based case to be made.
• Emphasise quality: gather good case studies of data handling, word processing.
• Rôle of teaching and learning with IT - CDROM, integrated media etc
• NAACE and ITTE need each other should collaborate in defending ed.

 

PROFILING
Gay Vaughan
Permeation attempted, problems, audit revealed eg no IT in English. Variation in treatment from hands-on to demo. All this led to a profiling.
For students: plan prof. dev. with knowledge of what's to come. For staff knowledge of PL

How does the profiling get done? Tutors? Peers? Mentors from higher years?
Assignments feeding profiling?

 

PROFILING
Peter Williams
Year 1 for competence and confidence
•IT experience survey
•IT capability profile - tick boxes for basic operations - space for them to add more (about 10% their own)
• about five statements related to essays etc staff initialed

Year 3 - choose topic, language/info. handling/problem solving/the arts/early years, choose software, use in school practice, proforma to help focus choice, directed work, record process of selection etc
•req. element of course

•sheet for TP supervisors to record something about use of IT

 

CATE
Sir William Taylor.

"Learning contracts" for students and institutions instead of simple competency check lists. IT mentioned as a resource that students should know how to employ.

<quote on industrial working practice  suggesting more small group collaboration.>
Mulgan '88

such practice possible because monitoring easier.

Lewis Carroll describes a fictional map that had:

"the scale of a mile to the mile."

A character notes some practical difficulties with such a map and states that:

"we now use the country itself, as its own map, and I assure you it does nearly as well."
— Sylvie and Bruno Concluded, Lewis Carroll, 1893
