"This site provides resources and tools to support learning in groups in the classroom and the staffroom. Most of the tools you will find here are intended for teachers, professional development designers and coaches, and administrators, though some are also designed to help families support student learning. Many also include ways to involve students more directly in teaching and learning decisions. Almost all of the tools emphasize greater intentionality combined with careful looking and listening. Making learning visible is not a recipe; it will take time to discover and adapt the tools and resources for your own setting. We hope you will find this site useful and enjoy exploring it. The site includes five kinds of tools and resources:
1. Supporting Learning in Groups in the Classroom
2. Supporting Learning in Groups in the Staffroom
3. Documenting Individual and Group Learning
4. Engaging Families in Supporting Student Learning
5. Making Learning Visible Beyond the Classroom"
Jim Lerman's insight:
A very rich site with extensive resources in support of "learning through interpreting objects and artifacts, group learning, and documentation to make students' learning evident to teachers. Visible classrooms are committed to five key principles: that learning is purposeful, social, emotional, empowering, and representational."
Well worth looking around here.
