A new book, crunching numbers on SEND and developing data literacy throughout Europe
Feedback from those who have read Databusting for Schools and those have attended sessions I have hosted since its publication has lead to the development of a new book for those who simply want to know what they should be doing with their data. Due in 2020, Dataproof Your School will provide answers to the pressing questions schools ask about collecting and using information.
As part of my work with the Driver Youth Trust, I have been looking closely at SEND statistics and what these mean for the school system. I'll be presenting my findings alongside Karen Wespeiser at the Hallam Festival of Education, ResearchEd Rugby and the Festival of Education.
In addition, I am pressenting my session on Assessment 101: 10 Things You Should Know About Assessing Children at ResearchEd Rugby, and I am part of a panel hosted by CEM at the Festival of Education, Measuring Progress in Education - The Good, the Bad and the Future.
Looking into Autumn 2019, I am in Manchester and Central London running sessions on Understanding and using standardised assessment and standardised scores to support teaching and learning for Rising Stars, as part of a programme which includes training by Becky St John and James Pembroke.
In the meantime, I am looking forward to the first international conference for Databusting for Schools, ResearchEd Haninge in March 2020.
