With problems around this year’s Annual National Assessments we are looking at #TheScienceInsideeducation.
We hear why cramming isn’t the best way to learn with.
We find out why psychometric testing might tell you more about a student than academic performance with Prof Cheryl Foxcroft.
We’ve had a look at the future of digital education with Google’s Karen Walstra and why it might be bad for us with digital addiction expert Brad Huddleston.
Lastly we speak to Prof Mellony Graven about teachers’ reactions to the Annual National Assessments.
Of course there’s also our Sensational Science Quiz and your weekly science news update.
