ASSESSING 21ST CENTURY CHILDREN, USING 21ST CENTURY TECHNIQUES
The way learners learn has changed dramatically over the past decade, and even more so in the past year because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Online platforms, virtual lessons and Google meets have become the norm, however, children and young people are still being assessed by the same traditional methods which take little or no account of their newfound skills and potential. Let’s rethink learning and be the force that stimulates change within the education system. Let’s be dynamic.

"I would like to thank Fraser and Clare for an excellent two-day training course. I have shared my experience of this course with many colleagues and you have inspired me to consider using DA more often in my work. I aim to continue to build my confidence in the approach in order for me to be able to support adults to think about how children learn best”
