Dorothy Burt: Visibility Enables Accelerated Shift
"Visibility Accelerates Accelerated Shift"
-Woolf Fisher Research Centre
Today, during our PES Staff Meeting, we had Dorothy Burt come in for our Term 4 Manaiakalani PD. Here are a few of my notes from what she shared with us prior to having some time to reflect on the shift in our own maths class.
Just as Manaiakalani's Learn, Create, Share cannot be done without the other, our Kaupapa: Connected, Ubiquitous, Empowered, Visible needs all four parts to be successful.
What is the #1 Factor Influencing Student Achievement? -According to John Hattie, it is definitely: Collective Teacher Efficacy!
As a school, we identified Maths as our 2017 focus for our collaborative inquiries.
-School Inquiry: School/Department/Individual Teacher
-External Inquiry: Woolf Fisher Research Centre, Auckland University
-Teacher Inquiry: Teachers Inquiring into their own practice and learner outcomes.
This led to us having some time to spend celebrating accelerated shift for ONE learner in our 2017 Maths class. Click here to see my "Impact Burst" post.
