An t-Alltan/ Conference for Practitioners of Gaelic Education, 27 and 28 September 2017⤴

from @ Education Scotland's Learning Blog

Practitioners are invited to register for this conference that is organised by Stòrlann. Education Scotland is delivering workshops at the conference to which you are warmly invited.  Please visit www.storlann.co.uk/an-t-alltan to register.

The workshops we are delivering at the conference are:

  1. Achieving Excellence and Equity

This session will look at how our report, Quality and Improvement in Scottish Education, 2012-2016 can support self-evaluation for self-improvement.  The session will comprise presentation and discussion to include:

  • effective leadership of 3-18 Gaelic in schools and nurseries;
  • using a well-structured and designed curriculum to raise attainment;
  • immersion, interaction and high-quality pedagogy through play;
  • using assessment to inform progress and attainment;
  • creating schools and nurseries which have a mutual understanding and inclusive ethos for Gaelic.
  1. E-Sgoil: A digital solution for Gaelic Medium Education curriculum

We are delighted to invite e-Sgoil to co-present this workshop with us. The development of an effective secondary GME curriculum requires creative planning of the contexts of Curriculum for Excellence. E-Sgoil offers a digital learning solution for curriculum planners’ consideration.  In this session, practitioners will gain an insight into what it is like to be a teacher, facilitator and a learner in e-Sgoil.  The session will support practitioners of the 3-18 curriculum to

  • become familiar with the digital technology that is used by e-Sgoil;
  • focus on effective pedagogy to support learning through technology;
  • plan the primary curriculum to support transitions to learning which is partially delivered through digital technologies.

Please also refer to our Advice on Gaelic Education, some of which is statutory, on how to structure and design a curriculum for GME.

  1. Benchmarks for Literacy and Gàidhlig

The purpose of this session is to promote an understanding of the national standards described in the Benchmarks for Literacy and Gàidhlig. There will be a particular focus on listening and talking.

Key themes for presentation and discussion will include:

  • using the Benchmarks to support professional judgements of achievement of a level;
  • developing progression in literacy and Gàidhlig using the Benchmarks;
  • gathering a range of evidence to demonstrate breadth, challenge and application;
  • developing an effective cycle of moderation in which practitioners have a shared understanding of standards and expectations.
