How Saltash Community School uses Yacapaca to support DIRT lessons

I had the privilege last week to interview Rachael Broad, HoD Computer Science at Saltash Community School in Cornwall. Rachael is a Yacapaca power user and our #19-ranked author.

Rachael has a very clear articulation of how she uses Yacapaca. In her own words:

  • Show clear gaps in knowledge (class based and individual student).
  • Support DIRT (Dedicated Improvement and Reflection Time) work and instant feedback.
  • Parental communication.

Here are the highlights of the complete interview (3’30”)

Rachael very kindly shared with me the slides she used to explain the process to her SLT, when she wanted to get them on board with the concept.

View the slides here.

Thanks Rachael! I hugely enjoyed interviewing you and learned a great deal in the process.

If you hear more inspiring ways teachers are using Yacapaca to improve teaching and learning in their schools, sign up for our regular Thursday 4pm CPD webinars. They are fast-paced, informative, interactive and always inspiring. CPD/Webinar Schedule here.
