Teaching for effective learning

I explored the notion of our South Australian curriculum framework guide here. One of the strengths of an online peer review learning community like the one I have on Slideshare is that you can be encouraged to develop your ideas and knowledge. It was suggested I make a series of presentations to cover the framework. That was a good challenge. It advantages me because I get the practice in presentations and because , as a school , we are looking closely at domain 3 this year. It helps others because I can understand and share my knowledge so I am not just paying lipservice to a departmental requirement. In that sense, my PLN is teaching me to become involved with my own learning and deepen my knowledge of what learning is. One of the things I shall now be saying in my classroom is , Don’t just do this because I have asked you to. Find your own way of making this material meaningful to yourself. Lifelong learning means you are going to have to know how to learn and that is essentailly what our new TeFL framework is about. This is the first of 3 parts for Domain 3 –Develop expert learners. With regard to technology it is even more important to develop expert learners so that people are not just soaked in all that technology which bombards them each day with all sorts of information and possibilities. It is important to be able to make sense of it, prioritise what is useful and helpful and to know how to become very good at something very quickly. As I do Domain 3 I am particularly looking at technology and so I have an idea of how to now develop this further. ..watch this space!!

Now that I have completed slide presentations for the whole of Domain 3, which is about developing expert learners, I feel better prepared as I go into my classroom in terms of actually having some good strategies at my fingertips for making my students learn better and more effectively. I have done it and now I can share that knowledge with them. Experience is a great teacher. 3.2 is here and 3.1 is here. […]
