    In this recorded professional learning session, Andrea Soanes and Lyn Rogers explore how teachers can confidently support their students to interpret and make sense of the data they collect.

    The focus is on how to engage students in science and to build their understandings of the nature of science whilst developing their science capabilities. This session will be valuable for both primary and secondary school teachers.

    Watching the recorded webinar creates an opportunity to engage with science ideas, concepts and Science Learning Hub resources. It discusses how these can be used to enhance students’ data-collection skills.

    A great way to refresh the brain and rethink about questions to ask students.

    Teacher

    The PowerPoint and recorded webinar provide ideas and information that will support teachers of any year level to:

    • enhance students’ understanding about data and evidence
    • build on students’ understandings of the nature of science
    • help develop students’ science capabilities
    • explore relevant resources on the Science Learning Hub.

    Nature of science

    Data and evidence underpin scientific knowledge and theories about the world. An understanding about data and evidence is crucial for students to understand science.

    The related webinar Delving into data explores how teachers can confidently plan opportunities to build on their students’ data-collection skills, how to engage students in science and to build their understandings of the nature of science whilst developing their science capabilities.
