Can technology streamline assessment in the Early Years?
The demands on assessment for our youngest children in schools can seems unyielding. The use of technology streamlines teacher’s daily assessment and ensures that the focus remains on the teaching and learning in the classroom. This session focuses on several simple computing tools, which allow adults working directly with the children to quickly link children's exploration through play with the guidance materials in Development Matters. These simple IT tweaks to a teacher's practice will bring back the joys to hands on teaching in an Early Years setting.

Easy Ed Tech Wins
The purpose of this session is to identify some of the low hanging fruit of education technology that can be used in the classroom. These "Easy Ed Tech Wins" are relatively simple to set up, require little (if any) staff training, inspire and engage learners, represent good value for money (not necessarily free) and generally work across a range of devices. There will hopefully also be an opportunity for others to share their suggestions, and you should leave the seminar with some ideas you can bring straight into your own classrooms."
