As you may already know, it was my job to film some of the sessions at the researchED Melbourne event held on the 1st July at Brighton Grammar. These videos will be available via the researchED YouTube channel. So far, I have managed to load my own presentation on to this channel as well as the presentation above by Jen Buckingham.
In her presentation, Jen discusses the evidence for systematic synthetic phonics in the context of the five skill areas that are involved in reading. She also looks at some of the barriers to implementing this evidence. I enjoyed the talk and it was well received by the audience. There was some controversy at the time when screenshots taken by audience members were posted on Twitter. If you were aware of that controversy then you may now place these screenshots in the context of the whole talk.
