Purposeful Professional Learning (Professional Learning That Shifts Practice- Part 1) -... - 7 views

  • allow learners to solve relevant issues that matter to them
    • Beverly Ozburn
      If it doesn't seem to matter to the learners, it will be wasted time for them. Sometimes teachers are only in a PD session for the hours. In such cases, it is the responsibility of the facilitator to make sure there is at least one nugget of info that matters to them.
  • the team determined a specific goal that they wanted to accomplish by the end of the day
    • Beverly Ozburn
      Good practice to ask what individuals hope to gain but also should ask what hope to gain via collaborative efforts. Maybe should ask them to share their top three strengths to give us a place for building upon.
  • To guide the work time, we observed some classrooms and discussed what we noticed. Based on our goals, we set clear targets and some time boundaries to check in on progress.
    • Beverly Ozburn
      We do this with teachers as we begin work with them. Maybe we need to be more transparent and have this in writing as well for them to reference- menu.

  • each teacher shared what they had learned, what they had created, and their actionable next steps.
    • Beverly Ozburn
      Probably the most important step of the day!
  • The more you empower learners, the more they will be invested in the work.
    • Beverly Ozburn
      Profound statement!
  • society evolves and schools work to meet the needs of learners
    • Beverly Ozburn
      I think one of the keys here is to acknowledge that society is evolving and we need to evolve to meet the needs of society - for example, just because research shows that, for some things, handwriting helps people remember something better or reading a hard copy is easier for comprehension than a digital copy - just because research at this point confirms these concepts, that doesn't mean we don't need to provide opportunities for practice and teach learners to recall digitally written info or comprehend digital text. If that is the trend the world is moving toward, we have to move in that direction as well - or be left behind.
  • purposeful
    • Beverly Ozburn
      We know that when learning is purposeful, students are more engaged and grasp more. So, why wouldn't we want professional learning to be the same?

Moving from Planning to Action (Professional Learning that Shifts Practice Part 3) - Ka... - 23 views

  • What do we know about what is currently working?
    • Beverly Ozburn
      We are good at complaining about what isn't working but rarely point out what is working well.
    • What did you notice?
    • What are wondering about?
    • What are implications for your practice?
    • How might we improve learning?
    • Beverly Ozburn
      Purposefully ask these questions after we model a practice/lesson.

Meaningful Problem Solving (Professional Learning that Shifts Practice Part 2) - Katie ... - 3 views

  • creating experiences that provide opportunities to grapple with challenges that are meaningful to individuals in their context. In order for teachers to do this in their classrooms it is important that they have similar experiences in their own learning.
    • Beverly Ozburn
      PD needs to model lessons and also needs to have focused discussion to 'debrief' and reinforce the learning.
    • Be curious and open to all ideas
    • Seek  to improve learning (students and educators)
    • Expect growth, not perfection
    • Focus reflection how to improve your work, not others
    • Ground work in evidence of learning, not assumptions
    • Beverly Ozburn
      May need to be stated up front at PD.

Education World: Are You a Techno-Constructivist? - 30 views

  • not only complements instruction but redefines it.
    • missboess
      This statement encompasses what I am trying to achieve in this resource design assessment. It also clearly links to the SMAR model of best ICT use in education, by implementing learning experience with technology that 'redefines' the activity. Meaning the activity is something that could not be done without the technology used.
  • help children build on their own experiences, construct their own meanings, create products, and solve problems successfully.
    • missboess
      Encompasses the constructivist theory I am using in the resource design and furthermore links to the method of inquiry.
  • long-term problem-solving and product-generating tasks
    • missboess
      In my resource design students will take part in a long term water sustainability project. A website will assist them in attaining access to multiple resources, communication with the outerworld (blogging) and creating products such as videos, visuals etc.

      How are you helping your students to connect to the outside world? Are they having dialogues with others?

    • missboess
      Webquest was used as an inspiration for my resource design, as it provides a useful platform for inquiry units to be created. There are endless examples on there. I really recommend you have a look at them. I decided to create my own website on weebly, as it provided more options and interactivity.

Understanding the true nature of science - The Learner's Way - 19 views

    As thousands take to the streets as part of a global 'March for Science' it is worth considering the significant role that education has to play. What are the messages we need to send our students about science and what role have schools played in creating the current climate? Now seems like the time to pause and reflect on the place of science in our community and our schools.

Shifting from awareness to action - The Learner's Way - 14 views

    The evidence is mounting and the narrative around education is shifting towards a story centred on long-life skills, creativity, collaboration, critical thinking and communication. Success in the future seems to be connected closely to one's capacity to innovate, to problem find and to make strategic decisions when confronted by unique situations for which we have not been specifically prepared.
