@ They do 1 GCSE over 2 years, I love them. We research the things they've seen. They ask Qs about what they've watched. #sciteachjc

@ YES! My kids love Bang Goes the Theory. They also adored Wallace & Gromit's World of Invention when it was on #SciTeachJC

I'm not convinced by the paper's way of demonstrating "learning" from these out-of-school activities...#SciTeachJC

@ so how can we make BBC *better*, both for kids *and* adults? 2 sets of links perhaps? worksheet/Q lists for schools? #SciTeachJC

#sciteachjc Is there anything we could provide online to extend our relationship past the trip? Web forums, places to share work etc?

Problem with some of this is that, unlike teaching, where *assessment* is part of the process, there is little or no assessment #SciTeachJC

Without assessment, how do we know (measure) that learning is actually taking place? #SciTeachJC?

Anything Jimmy is awesome, esp for enviro. Plus he looks good. #SciTeachJC

@ Perennial difficulty of enrichment/enhancement activities? How to measure learning or other success criteria... #SciTeachJC

@ that would be great! But is watching for enjoyment not valid? #devilsadvocate #SciTeachJC

@ Agreed. Meaningful formative assessment is an important part of the learning process. #sciteachjc

Article says utiliz. of ISE declines after age 12. What are the stats & how to keep museums/other opps relevant for older kids? #SciTeachJC

@ only way is to sample random selection of 'customers' and offer incentives for Q-aire/minitest. #SciTeachJC

@ I don't know that they're learning, but they answer Qs and ask good Qs after watching - my boys won't go to museums #SciTeachJC

@ oh, of course. but wouldn't it be good to *offer* that easy link so *if* ppl curious, can carry on? #SciTeachJC

@ Me neither, but agree with the paper's aspirations to improve #outofschool learning. But not at expense of inschool. #sciteachjc

@ @ Good ISE data that isn't just self-reported would be useful. #sciteachjc

.@ Any such assessment must take place in way that allows before / after comparisons. #SciTeachJC cc @

@ Don't think there's suggestion that improvement of out-school science learning would be at expense of in-school #SciTeachJC

@ same as the scicomm shows - an engaging popular event, but where is the learning? Paper assumes learning taken place. #sciteachjc

@ What's stopping the science museum from doing its own mini science exams and certificates? Like doing Grade 1 piano! #sciteachjc
@AnthHard
Anthony Hardwicke

#SciTeachJC Evaluating long-term impacts from short interactions is extremely hard! Requires academic study; we don't have resources.

Did @ just have a little dig at "science shows"? 😉 #SciTeachJC
@alomshaha

@ so offer incentive at *start*, fill in mini test on entry as part of form. #SciTeachJC

@ Just parroting your line 🙂 #sciteachjc
