The Australian Curriculum v5.0

The Australian Curriculum v5.0 | Multiliteracies | Scoop.it

The development of the Australian Curriculum is guided by the Melbourne Declaration on Educational Goals for Young Australians, adopted by the Ministerial Council in December 2008. The Melbourne Declaration emphasises the importance of knowledge, skills and understandings of learning areas, general capabilities and cross-curriculum priorities as the basis for a curriculum designed to support 21st century learning.

 

The F-10 Australian Curriculum sets out the core knowledge, understanding, skills and general capabilities important for all Australian students. It describes the learning entitlement of students as a foundation for their future learning, growth and active participation in the Australian community. It makes clear what all young Australians should learn as they progress through schooling. It is the foundation for high quality teaching to meet the needs of all Australian students.

ACARA has developed the Australian Curriculum in consultation with states and territories. Education Authorities in each state and territory have responsibility for implementation of the Australian Curriculum and for supporting schools and teachers.

Detail of changes made to previous versions and those that are now evident in the Australian Curriculum can be viewed on the website under site map and ‘curriculum version history’

New Address for Visible Thinking

New Address for Visible Thinking | Multiliteracies | Scoop.it

At the core of Visible Thinking are practices that help make thinking visible: Thinking Routines loosely guide learners' thought processes and encourage active processing. They are short, easy-to-learn mini-strategies that extend and deepen students' thinking and become part of the fabric of everyday classroom life. Thinking Ideals are easily accessible concepts capturing naturally occurring goals, strivings or interests that often propel our thinking. Four Ideals -- Understanding, Truth, Fairness and Creativity -- are presented as modules on this site. There are associated routines for each ideal and within each module there are activities that help deepen students' concepts around the ideal.

 

A key feature of the Visible Thinking approach is the Teacher Study Group as described in the School-Wide Culture of Thinking section. In these groups teachers reflect on student work, or documentation, generated by students when using routines or investigating an ideal. Documentation such as lists, maps, charts, diagrams, and worksheets reveal learners' unfolding ideas as they think through an issue. In study groups teachers use the structured conversation of a protocol to look at and reflect on thinking present in student work.

Global Education Project, Victoria's curator insight, March 12, 2013 9:45 PM

This site provides a convenient way to learn about Visible Thinking as well as thorough descriptions of the ideals, routines and activities that we've developed from research in K-12 schools.

The six sections of this site are: Visible Thinking in Action; Getting Started; Thinking Routines; Thinking Ideals; School Wide Culture of Thinking; Additional Resources. Each of the illustrated boxes on the left margin of this page links to one of the areas. You can also click on the green start arrow to enter the site.

While the sections do provide a sequential introduction and practical overview of Visible Thinking, it is also possible to skip from section to section. Exploration is encouraged
