Autonomy Breeds Change (in teacher development)

Autonomy Breeds Change (in teacher development) | Teachning, Learning and Develpoing with Technology | Scoop.it

A year and a half ago I decided to implement a job-embedded growth model at the suggestion of some of my teacher leaders. They desperately sought time during the school day to engage in professional growth opportunities, learn how to integrate Web 2.0 tools, and develop their own Personal Learning Networks (PLN’s). After some thinking and looking at various options inherent in the current schedule, I decided to cut all non-instructional duties in half to create a Professional Growth Period (PGP).

A great way to spread out your content over a few weeks is to create a blog series! This will force you to fully think and plan out your idea, as well as to publish at least once a week. :-)


Further, it's a great opportunity to link back to previous posts on your blog as well as to leave the readers wanting more and increase the changes of their return.

Jeremy Pollard's curator insight, December 10, 2013 5:37 PM

Useful piece for first-timers. Content is a form of re-framing. Take an idea, nail it to the wall, then walk around it looking at it from different directions and angles.

 

Time is a great 'frame' for any topic - what was this topic like before, what is it like now, what do you think it will be like in the future.

 

Imagine the topic as it might appear to different people in different roles. This can be how you imagine it from their perspective.

 

The other great idea is to ask 3 or 4 other people what they think and share that also. They can be people in other roles in your company, partners or providers or channels or suppliers.  Most 'experts' are happy to invest 5-10 minutes sharing their thoughts.

 

Content for me is playing with perspectives.

This chart can be used for students as a guideline for the right mindset in dealing with their education.

I would probably use this chart in the beginning of the school year to show what I expect from my students.  This could be useful for the less motivated students in the class.

In this new version, we have included clarification on Assessment OF, FOR and AS Learning.


>Individualization involves assessment OF learning. This is where summative assessment is grade-based and involves testing to confirm what learners know and do not know.

 

> Differentiation  involves assessment FOR learning and OF learning. This is assessment that involves time-based testing where teachers provide feedback to advance learning.

 

> Personalization involves assessment AS learning, FOR learning, and a minimal OF learning. This is where teachers develop capacity so learners become independent learners who set goals, monitor progress, and reflect on learning. Assessments are based on mastery.

Jo Blannin - The Know Tech Teacher's curator insight, December 4, 2013 9:56 PM

I love this graphic of the difference between Personalisation, Differenctiation and Individulisation. We often use the words interchangeably but as with anything, the language becomes important when you are trying to communicate to people - including teachers. 

 

I've used this with teachers at my school, in small groups, to talk about what it is we are actually doing in the classroom....

Using Bloom's Taxonomy In The 21st Century: 4 Strategies For Teaching

Using Bloom's Taxonomy In The 21st Century: 4 Strategies For Teaching | Teachning, Learning and Develpoing with Technology | Scoop.it

For decades, education reform has been focused on curriculum, assessment, instruction, and more recently standards, and data, with these efforts only bleeding over into how students think briefly, and by chance. This means that the focus of finite teacher and school resources are not on promoting thinking and understanding, but rather what kinds of things students are going to be thinking about and how they’ll prove they understand them.
