Reading Inquiry LEARN Summary

As part of my Community of Learning Inquiry and Spark-MIT Inquiry this past term, I have been focusing on the Learn portion of the Manaiakalani Inquiry Framework. The "Learn Focus" answers the question: 

 What is important (and therefore worth spending time on) given where my students are at? 

 Below is a summary of the various Inquiry Items and links to specific blog posts that I have put together as evidence of each item.




As Term 2 begins, I will continue to learn about my students as I begin to create and explore various methods of learning for my students to be successful.

Term 1 Maths Inquiry Update



This term I have been focusing on rewindable learning with my maths groups using Explain Everything to model my teaching while recording our group discussion and interactions.  Students can be seen utilising the Rewindable Learning folder throughout the week in our class to revisit their time with our class.  We have also been working on various ways to demonstrate our learning to share on our blogs as create tasks.

My next step for term 2 is to add problem solving questions into the weekly learning and ultimately move to creating a screencast to explain their thinking and reasoning about the problem.
