Charters & merit pay are 'distractions' that won't improve learning - John Hattie

Charters & merit pay are 'distractions' that won't improve learning - John Hattie | 21st Century Literacy and Learning | Scoop.it
Several of the government’s key education policies, including performance-related pay for teachers, extra assessment and an emphasis on schools becoming academies, are a “distraction” that will have only a “minimal” impact on students’ learning, according to new work from a leading education academic.

Rebecca Wilkins's curator insight, June 27, 10:02 AM

Listen to the Hattie's research.  Charters and merit pay may have a short term impact on increasing student achievement, but there are no substantial gains in the long term. It is better to put our efforts on highly skilled and caring teachers and leaders that collaborate for the benefit of students and the community they serve.

Quality Teaching: It's Intentional - VIDEO - LearnTeachLead.ca | 21st Century Literacy and Learning | Scoop.it
Quality teaching is intentional and strategic. It involves making the right decision at just the right time to improve student learning. Strategic teachers are consciously aware of why they are doing what they are doing throughout the day.

MindMup

MindMup | 21st Century Literacy and Learning | Scoop.it

Another way MindMup is now allowing you to work with larger groups easier is a quick notification mechanism when someone changes a node. You'll get a small speech bubble pop up for several seconds and disappear automatically, so it's easy to keep an eye on the entire team or classroom. At the moment, this only works for node text changes, but in the future we'll add other notification types.
