a world that we would find hard to imagine when we were students. The last 30 years have seen some of the most rapid technological advancements in human history, thanks to creations such as the internet and the iPhone.
“One-size-fits-all” education may have been common years ago. But today it is not. At TBS Warsaw, we are working to incorporate the benefits of technology into providing the very best experience for our learners. Technology can be used in a vast range of innovative ways to engage and personalise learning activities. In addition, we are using technology in the form of diagnostic tests, to ensure that we know our learners; this allows teachers to match work to individual students’ needs, and to tailor learning to their interests. On joining Secondary, and again in years 10 and 12, every student will sit a suite of diagnostic tests that allows our teachers to better understand the needs to each student. As well as informing learning, reports can be produced for parents and students that give guidance on how to improve on areas of weakness.
Over the next half term we are trialing these reports with our Year 10 students who will be discussing their ‘test scores’ with their tutors to better understand their own strengths and weaknesses. If you are a Year 10 parent you will receive a copy of your child’s CAT4 report before the end of the half term; if you are a parent in another year group I would be happy to give you more information at our Academic Review Day next week on 06 November.
