How is Music Learning Celebrated and Developed?
This review has been written by Professor Welch and Pauline Adams, two eminent music educationalists from the Institute of Education, University of London. It is a thorough review of a number of important challenges facing music education in the 21st century, and a useful summary of related national and international research evidence. It will be a useful source of information for those undertaking a period of initial teacher training or for those commencing a piece of music education research.

Transferring a model for improving the ability of design & technology PGCE trainee teachers to teach
This project concerned trainees’ ability to teach designing. An earlier study fully reported elsewhere found that a curriculum intervention in the training programme enhanced PGCE students’ ability to teach designing. The earlier study also revealed that the enhancement was less effective for those students specialising in food technology or electronic and communication technology (ECT). The current project investigated the issue of designing within food technology and transfer of a curric
The use of ICT in Physical Education in the Exeter Initial Teacher Training Partnership (R&DA 2: 13)
This project investigated the way ICT is used In Physical Education (PE) and the opportunities for enhancing its use. Trainees and tutors from one provider took part in the research. The researchers found that practice and the provision of resources were ad-hoc but that the potential for the use of a rich variety of ICT in PE was not realised. In particular ICT applications in PE such as digital video cameras and video analysis software, heart rate monitors were quite distinct from the contrib
How can video web-cam technologies be used to promote the development of evidence-based practice by
This project explored the potential of webcam recordings to enhance professional development and mentoring of trainees’ classroom practice. The report provides detail on the practicalities of implementing two systems (Ondev and Gemin-i Observation Tool GOTv2) and findings are reported in four areas: Technical, Legal, Ethical and Educational. When classroom web-cam recordings were made trainees found these valuable as a tool for reviewing their practice. Recordings helped trainees and mentors
Promoting group talk and higher-order thinking in pupils by coaching secondary English trainee teach
The aim of the project was to investigate whether the quality of pupils’ group talk and higher-order thinking at KS3 could be developed by giving additional training and coaching to a group of self-selected trainees. The project aimed to develop the trainees’ skills in planning challenging tasks for pupils’ group talk in English; and in promoting effective talk through the use of pupil ‘ground-rules’ and varied teacher discourse strategies, drawn from research and the participants’ p
Building ICT Capability into the Science Initial Teacher Training Partnership at Birmingham and Beyo
This project attempted to develop pedagogy appropriate to computer modelling and explored computer based modelling in science teaching with beginning teachers. Science teachers and trainees in partnership with one training provider over three years used the modelling application VnR in science lessons. There was some evidence of pupil progress but the innovation did not survive well in schools. The possible reasons why the innovation was not incorporated into continuing practice are discussed
Urban ITT: Working With Urban Schools In Challenging Contexts (R&DA 2: 17)
The purpose of this project was to contribute to the training of teachers for work in urban schools facing a range of disadvantages. The research was conducted in Manchester and London and undertaken with teachers at the beginning of their careers and the mentors who supported them. 162 trainees were surveyed and eight case studies investigated issues in more depth. The project found that many trainees started and ended their training wanting to teach in challenging urban settings but that th
Modelling with Fourier series
This unit shows how partial differential equations can be used to model phenomena such as waves and heat transfer. The prerequisite requirements to gain full advantage from this unit are an understanding of ordinary differential equations and basic familiarity with partial differential equations.
Systems of differential equations
This unit shows how various situations can be modelled by a system of linear differential equations. The prerequisite requirements to gain full advantage from this unit are a basic understanding of differential equations, a familiarity with the properties of matrices and determinants and some understanding of eigenvalues and eigenvectors.
NALDIC ITTSEAL: KS1/2 English The Multilingual Classroom
This resource from the National Association for Language Development in the Curriculum (NALDIC) ITTSEAL features session notes for ITE educators to accompany the Teachers TV programme KS1/2 English The Multilingual Classroom. The programme shows teachers using a range of classroom techniques to teach the curriculum to EAL learners from Y2-Y6. Teaching strategies useful for pupils learning EAL include teacher modelling of oral and written English, peer modelling and the use of key visuals. Sessi
Aims and Values in Primary Education: national and international perspectives
The Primary Review published its most recent research surveys on 18th January 2008. These are interim reports, part of the thirty research surveys commissioned by the Review as evidence and drawn from more than 280 published sources. They ‘offer historical, contemporary and international perspectives on the question of what in a fast-changing and uncertain world the central aims of England's system of primary education should be, and by what values that system might be underpinned'.
