What works in education - John Hattie's list of the greatest effects and why it matters

What works in education - John Hattie's list of the greatest effects and why it matters | EdTech Footenotes | Scoop.it

by Grant Wiggins

 

"I have been a fan of John Hattie’s work ever since I encountered Visible Learning. Hattie has done the most exhaustive meta-analysis in education. Thanks to him, we can gauge not only the relative effectiveness of almost every educational intervention under the sun but we can compare these interventions on an absolute scale of effect size.


"Perhaps most importantly, Hattie was able to identify a ‘hinge point’ (as he calls it) from exhaustively comparing everything: the effect size of .40. Anything above such an effect size has more of an impact than just a typical year of academic experience and student growth. And an effect size of 1.0 or better is equivalent to advancing the student’s achievement level by approximately a full grade."

Technology does not appear on the list. It does not mean it is not important, but it the way it is used that makes it important or not.

Mark Gillingham's curator insight, January 24, 1:52 PM

The list of effective practices should give teachers permission to try new practices that are further up the list and join a reading group to discuss Hattie's new book.

Lost Your Apple TV Remote? You Don't Need to Buy Another!

Lost Your Apple TV Remote? You Don't Need to Buy Another! | EdTech Footenotes | Scoop.it

"Apple TV has proven to be a very useful gadget, both at home and at school. Airplay mirroring is its best feature. I am able to show whatever is on my iPad/iPhone screen and beam it up to a big-screen TV or a projector. I believe, at its relatively low price point of $100, any Apple fan should own one. In terms of the classroom, it can be a powerful tool for supporting your teaching. Teachers can benefit from being able to roam around the classroom and beam up multiple devices."
