Science Subject Knowledge for Trainee Primary Teachers - The delivery of multimedia content via a Vi
This project examined how a virtual learning environment could be used to enhance science subject knowledge for trainee primary teachers. Diagnostic quizzes, specially designed and created materials using still and moving images, and extra sessions were used successfully to enhance subject knowledge competence and confidence in ‘difficult concepts’ in science. These materials were used with primary PGCE trainees and are available for examination. Supported by a TDA Research and Developmen
NASA CONNECT Virtual Earth: Using Concept Maps to Solve Problems
In NASA CONNECT Virtual Earth, students will be introduced to Earth system science. They will learn what a system is and how to apply the concept of systems to learn more about how the Earth functions. Students will understand the only way to really comprehend the workings of our planet is to look at the Earth as a whole system. They will also focus on Earth science applications of national priority to expand and accelerate the use of knowledge, science, and technologies resulting from the Earth
Virtual learning environments: an evaluation of their development in a sample of educational setting
This resource is a 28-page Ofsted survey of VLE usage in 35 selected establishments. It also draws upon the reference to VLEs in recent Ofsted reports. The data is drawn from the full range from primary schools through secondary and post-16 to colleges providing adult education. Some of the data comes from the virtual survey of VLEs. Published in 2009, this extensive survey covers the period following the publication of the DfES Harnessing Technology in 2005.
