Effective Multimedia Learning - Primary & Secondary

Lead: Tony Staneff & James Clegg

RIWG – In recent years there has been a lot of research into what makes the most effective multimedia learning.  Most lessons taught in schools now feature some form of multimedia learning, be it a video, PowerPoint or animation.  This Work Group aims to look at the latest research and take an in depth look at the key principles and how they can be applied to make learning maths more effective. Participants will:

  • Understand Mayer’s 12 principles of effective multimedia learning.
  • Show how they can be applied to home learning or in class learning.
  • Look at how these principles look in practice.

The first session begins on 23rd March 2021.

This programme is fully funded by the Maths Hub so is FREE to participating schools.

Year 5-8 Continuity

Lead: Elizabeth Tomlinson & Karen Knepper

NCP20-17- Work Groups in this project aim to strengthen the transition from primary to secondary school by focusing on curriculum and pedagogical continuity over Years 5 to 8.

Central to the Work Group is the promotion of cross phase communication between teachers to address issues of maths knowledge and learning transition as distinct from pastoral considerations. Whilst many Work Groups will focus on using Multiplicative Reasoning resources, Work Groups can explore any aspect of the KS2/3 curriculum.

Participants should be teachers of Years 5-8 in primary, secondary, middle school and all-through schools who have some responsibility for curriculum development

Challenging Topics at GCSE

Lead: Tim Chadwick
