Enhancing pupil learning on museum visits

Museums give children experiences above and beyond the everyday experiences that enrich and build upon classroom teaching and learning. Taking pupils to a museum, or bringing museum artefacts into school, instantly changes the dynamics of the usual learning environment. It gives you as a teacher the opportunity to start afresh with each child, to reach and engage with pupils in new and different ways. This free course, Enhancing pupil learning on museum visits, explores practical ways in which you can make the most of the UK's extraordinarily dynamic and diverse museums and galleries; it gives you pathways into museum resources, and shares examples of teachers and museum educators making the most of museum artefacts.

TESSA: Using Appropriate Language

In many classrooms there will be pupils who do not speak the language of the local community or the language of the classroom. These two dramas illustrate the importance for teachers in both using language with their pupils that is appropriate to pupils' level of understanding and checking pupils' understanding of instructions. The clips in this album are designed to be used to support the development of teachers' classroom practice in both formal and non formal learning situations. This material is from the TESSA (Teacher Education in Sub Saharan Africa) initiative.

The clips in this album are designed to be used to support the development of teachers' classroom practice in both formal and non formal learning situations.
