What is the LGfL newsfeed?
So much happens within the London Grid for Learning that it is sometimes hard to keep everyone abreast of the latest developments. The newsfeed is simply another way for connected schools to stay up to date. Teachers are busy professionals, so the aim is to keep it short, quick and informative:

Latest News Article: Mathspace for GCSE revision schedule
As we draw near to Easter, examination revision time is approaching. Did you know that Mathspace has some specially created revision tests for use across the years and for GCSE? Once you have started one, you can take a look again and again - just what you need for revision.
There is a video you can watch here with advice on using Mathspace for revision. Teachers might decide to use the tests as part of a lesson, or why not add it to the revision tools given to students for Easter and the study-leave period.
Remember, the LGfL Maths Revision Suite from Mathspace is availabe at no additional cost to all connected schools, so if you are not already using it, you are missing out. Find out more here.
This Bett Award winning resource has proved highly popular with schools around London since coming onto LGfL, meeting one of Ofsted’s greatest criticisms of online resources, namely that although tracking was often made easier, “no attention was given to how well the work was set out, or whether correct methods and notation were used.”
The unique advantage of Mathspace, which differentiates it from the surfeit of other online maths resources, is that it does much more than automatically check students’ answers and feed data back to teachers. As students progress through the tests, they get instant feedback on every step they take, with hints given for every incorrect working. As well as this, Mathspace automatically creates revision tasks to further aid their learning.
Teachers receive class and student breakdowns, but are also able to drill down to see working out for every student and can check any misconceptions as they arise.
