Digitalizing Gallery Walks: A Method for Student-Centered Feedback and Engagement - Teaching Online Pedagogical Repository

At its heart, a gallery walk is an interactive, discussion technique where students move around the room, actively analyze information, and provide peers with feedback about their work (Fasse & Kolodner, 2000; Francek, 2006; Gooding & Metz, 2011). Similar to their namesake in the art world, a gallery walk can display any student learning artifact, ranging from visuals made on poster boards to research reports and 3D models. After the artifacts are displayed, students view, read, and analyze their peers’ work and offer feedback in the form of short notes or verbal comments. Guy Claxton.

Key considerations to teaching In My Blood It Runs - In My Blood It Runs - ABC Education - In My Blood It Runs is a critically acclaimed documentary following 10-year-old Arrernte and Garrwa boy, Dujuan Hoosan, and his family.

Key considerations to teaching In My Blood It Runs - In My Blood It Runs - ABC Education -

The film reveals the challenges Dujuan faces both in his school and on the streets of Alice Springs, and it tackles the impacts of Australia’s colonial history on children while showing the power of agency resting with families and communities. In My Blood It Runs encourages educators to engage in learning and reflection, which may involve a process of “unlearning” and “relearning” — challenging assumptions and recognising that what was previously taught in schools about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, histories and cultures has often been inaccurate, incomplete or told through a deficit perspective. In many ways, the events and issues explored in the film are reflective of wider structural or systemic issues.

Scaling effective practices in schools

If we are to scale and sustain good practices to benefit more students, then we want to know whether these practices work so schools and systems can use the results to inform decisions to improve, further expand, or cut the program. For the past four years, Evidence for Learning (E4L)’s Learning Impact Fund has used an innovative model to fund and run four independent evaluations of promising programs aiming to improve academic outcomes for students (with a special focus on children from vulnerable backgrounds). There have been three randomised controlled trials (RCTs) and one pilot study. E4L has also developed a seven-step approach to evaluate a program’s effectiveness, which is based on the UK Early Intervention Foundation’s ‘10 steps for evaluation success’. Creating an Education Action Plan Developing a school implementation plan Schools have complex settings and structures.

5 Tips for Increasing Clarity in the Mathematics Classroom  Teacher clarity is hot. And it should be. After all, who wants to be the unclear teacher or the one whose students say they don’t learn from? The role of the curriculum in creating the future. The school curriculum should embody a society’s vision for its future and play a vital role in achieving that vision. I was prompted to reflect on this during my review of the New South Wales curriculum and in a study visit to Estonia. When Estonia regained its independence in 1991, it immediately set to work on a new curriculum driven by a vision of an Estonia that would be more democratic, based on a market economy, more closely aligned with Western Europe, continually evolving, and strongly information-based. For much of its history, this small Baltic state had been occupied by Sweden, Tsarist Russia, Germany, and had been part of the Soviet Union.

It had no world-class industries and few natural resources. It looked to education to bolster its economy, enhance national identity and productivity, build and preserve its democratic institutions and processes, and create a better future for all its citizens. Pages - Literacy learning progressions. What is Literacy? Literacy is defined as students' ability to interpret and create texts with appropriateness, accuracy, confidence, fluency and efficacy for learning in and out of school, and for participating in the workplace and community. Texts include media texts, everyday texts and workplace texts from increasingly complex and unfamiliar settings, ranging from the everyday language of personal experience to more abstract, specialised and technical language, including the language of schooling and academic study. Students learn to adapt language to meet the demands of more general or more specialised purposes, audiences and contexts.
