Knowledge does not exist in little compartments and nor does learning. This is one of eleven documents in a cross curricular series- art and science. Cross curricular learning is important for students enabling them construct their understanding of the world. These are: Art and science; 2. Drama and science; 3. Food technology and science; 4. English and science; 5. Geography and science; 6. History and science; 7. Maths and science; 8. MfL and science; 9. Music and science; 10. ICT and science; 11. PE and science designed to help teachers make links between subjects. Schools could organise projects so that every subject is covered at least once during a student’s stay in the school. Enriching both the student and the teachers. Ideas are listed as basic, intermediate and advanced. In primary schools suggestions in the basic area and for more able students in the intermediate area are suggested. Secondary schools younger students or those with learning difficulties may benefit from basic and intermediate suggestions. Advanced project ideas can be used with older or more able students. In addition, the ideas can be used for enrichment and extension activities. Students who have been given opportunities to study topics of particular interest to them have on occasions gone on to do a PhD in those areas. Teachers using these resources may be interested in the series of careers linked to specific subjects.

After lockdown, when people return to school, suddenly digital literacy has become really important for both students and their teachers. As education is catapulted into the 21 century digital skills are at a premium and are developing rapidly. This resource provides a series of audits for schools derived from the UK government’s Essential digital skills framework which defines the digital skills adults need to safely benefit from, participate in and contribute to the digital world. There are 12 FREE documents in the series: • Digital Foundation skills audit for teachers • Digital Foundation skills audit for students (this one) • Digital Communication skills audit for teachers • Digital Communication skills audit for students • Digital Handling Information and content skills audit for teachers • Digital Handling Information and content skills audit for students • Digital Transaction skills audit for teachers • Digital Transaction skills audit for students • Digital Problem-Solving skills audit for teachers • Digital Problem-Solving skills audit for students • Digital Being Safe and Legal Online skills audit for teachers • Digital Being Safe and Legal Online skills audit for students The wording for teachers, as the adults, is taken directly from the framework and turned into a checklist for schools to use. In the students’ checklists the wording has been slightly modified and the changes, made by the author, shown in red. The documents are in Word format to allow teachers to easily simplify and modify for their settings. Also available is detailed teacher guidance about how these documents can be used in schools, including strategies to develop skills gaps found through the audits and ideas about comparing and addresses mismatches between teachers and students’ digital skills.

Catch up - After lockdown

Preparing to return to your school buildings? Ready to address and solve Post pandemic problems? This document is designed to help senior leaders devise strategies for helping students catch up and consolidate their learning. There are three strategies listed: Independent Research Projects Cross curricular projects Collaborative learning projects By setting simple research project teachers can help students to learn a lot about a subject very rapidly. Independent research opportunities are one of the best chances students can be given to deepen and widen their knowledge. Students who have been given opportunities to study topics of particular interest to them have on occasions gone on to do a doctorate in those areas! Knowledge does not exist in little compartments and nor does learning. Cross curricular learning is important for students enabling them construct their understanding of the world. As we seek ways to help students catch up, CROSS-CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES HELP TIME CONSTRAINTS – MORE CONTENT CAN BE COVERED. Collaborative learning is a much under-used technique in schools. . By talking and writing at the same time students can cross-fertilise ideas and produce much better material than any single student could do. When consolidating learning these experiences will provide opportunities to fill the gap in learning. If students are asked to produce a paragraph on a particular topic, then each student may have accessed different information during their home studies. By putting together three different collections of information, the students are able to share knowledge. • Why not use the checklist to see which strategies your school is using to help students catch up and consolidate their learning? • Ask different stake-holders to complete the document and compare their scores. • Complete the audit when school re-opens, then at the beginning of the next two terms. What does the result tell you?
