How The Lesson Observation App Will Help You
What are the criteria for an Outstanding Grade? Have this information with you at all times on your mobile
An excellent tool for increasing your knowledge of Teaching, Learning and Assessment.
A great way to improve the quality of Lesson Observations.
Imagine you are in the middle of a lesson observation and you want to quickly check some criteria. And imagine also you had it on your iPhone or Android. This is just one of the features of this free app - it is designed to help observers when they most need it. But an additional benefit for all staff, including leaders and managers, is that it gives details on the major issues surrounding lesson observation today.
The first menu item is Judgement Criteria and will take you to 10 sections covering :
Learning & Progression
Assessment of Learning
Feedback & Marking
Attendance & Behaviour
Equality & Diversity
Resources & Venue
Here you will find very concise, to-the-point summaries of what the expectations are for an outstanding grade in that section.
And to help you keep up to date with the latest news on UK education matters there is a tab full of news feed snippets.
We have also included some handy tools - a diary to record your observations, a scanner to capture Good Practice documents and a page of useful links.
Overall, we believe that you will find this Lesson Observation app to be an excellent tool for increasing your knowledge of Teaching & Learning and for improving the quality of lesson observations.
