Teachers Working with Video to Improve Their Practice and Enhance Pupil Learning (March 2001)
A report on a study to show how videos of teachers' practice can promote and sustain the process of critical reflection to improve their practice and enhance pupil learning.
citizED Secondary Strand: Encouraging Active Citizenship in PGCE Practice
An article from the Citizenship Initial Teacher Training Professional Resource Network (citizED) on encouraging Active Citizenship in PGCE Practice.
Workshop 6: The Mind's Intelligences
This workshop considers Howard Gardner’s theory of multiple intelligences and shows his theory being applied in a range of classrooms. As Gardner shares his thoughts on educational reform, you will learn how to create learning environments that support the full spectrum of students’ abilities.

Effective Classroom Organisation in Primary Schools: Mathematics
This resource is a TRIPS summary of research which questions the practice of setting by ability in lower Key Stage 2 mathematics lessons. It aims to evaluate the impact of setting, as opposed to mixed ability grouping, on children’s attainment in mathematics.

How classroom talk supports reading comprehension
This research summary, published on the DfES TRIPS (The Research Informed Practice) site, underlines the importance of high quality classroom talk in developing reading comprehension with pupils aged 6-16. Most of the findings will be very familiar to teachers and trainees conversant with good practice in literacy teaching, and the recommendations of the National Strategies, but there are some useful insights into the specifics of effective teacher support which would be of value to ITT trainees
The Solid Earth - Environmental Science
A professor (Dr. Pal Tackley) Department of Earth Science at UCLA narrates how the solid interior of the earth affects the outer layer through mountain ranges, volcanoes and plate tectonics. The speaker uses a lecture format but the video has good photographs of the processes. Run time 02:54.
Primary teachers' changing attitudes and cognition during a two-year science in-service programme an
This is a research digest from the DCSF Research Informed Practice Site (TRIPS). The research raises some useful questions about the effectiveness of continuing professional development (CPD) in primary science.
Energetics and Dynamics
This program emphasizes the importance of learning about energetics and dynamics in order to improve students’ understanding of basic principles of chemistry. The complexity of teaching concepts such as the collisions theory, reaction kinetics, and electronic energy levels is introduced using a variety of teaching strategies. These concepts are related to everyday phenomena thro
Theory and Practice in Chemical Systems
This program shows how a theoretical understanding of the driving force for chemical systems can lead to further development of new technologies and to the discovery of new phenomena, in practice. In teaching, this is done through the creation of a close relationship between the science and mathematics of chemical processes, through problem-solving activities. These acti
An evaluation of innovative approaches to teacher training on the Teach First programme
This report, commissioned by the TDA in 2003, evaluates the Teach First programme. This is an employment-based route recruiting able graduates into teaching, especially in shortage subjects, in challenging schools in London. The report evaluates whether the innovative practice within the Teach First programme could be shared with and has benefits for other ITT providers. There is a detailed outline of the data collection method followed by a focus on each aspect of innovative practice. At the en
GTIP: Maps with Latitude
Extracts from a GA 'Theory into Practice' publication, which discusses new approaches to studying the globe and to selecting and using world maps.
Taking the first step forward…towards an education for sustainable development
This resource is a 2003 Ofsted report into good practice in education for sustainable development (ESD) in primary and secondary schools. Successful schools had experimented over time and had integrated ESD into the work of the whole school.
Emerging Technologies for Learning
This is the first volume of a Becta (2006) review of emerging technologies in education. It contains five articles by different authors, each outlining current and possible future trends in technology that are likely to have some impact on educational policy and practice in the relatively near future. There is considerable overlap in the content of the five articles, but five different emphases or perspectives are presented.
4.2.2 The significance of the average energy The average thermal energy of the atoms in a solid indicates how much they are ‘rattling’ or vibrating around their mean positions. Since the atoms are close together, virtually touching, and because atoms are almost incompressible, they cannot get much closer. But they can get further apart. So, since thermal energy is manifested in the vibrations of the atoms, bigger vibrations mean that the atoms must spend more time further apart. On average then, there is a tendency for a solid to ex

Mohamed Motala speaks at the Power of In-between Conference 1-2 July 2008
Mohamed Motala talks about the importance of thinking about why we do what we do in regard to public policy issues at the Power of In-between Conference in Pretoria, South Africa 1-2 July 2008. The conference, organised by the Institute of Development Studies, Sussex and the Human Science Research Council, South Africa, aimed to shine a light on the role of research brokers and intermediaries and explore how they support evidence-based pro-poor policy and practice.
