Professional learning animation – aitsl

aitsl is our national professional teaching and school leadership organisation in Australia and its website has a wealth of information, ideas, support, discussion and ,of course, our national professional standards. This video was made 2012 and it’s a good motivator for the beginning of 2014. Its message is timeless. Teachers need to be encouraged to thrive and they need support in order to drive and sustain themselves and their students through a school year…and the next school year …and the next. Teachers need to be connected and encouraged so they can create the environments which are best for learning. This then connects well with TeFL Domain 1 Learning for effective teaching:

1.Understand how self and others learn
2.Develop deep pedagogical content and knowledge
3.Engage with the community
4.Discuss educational purpose and policy.

Teachers need to be connected to the real world and its context and that can be easily done with technolgy. You  can connect with anyone anywhere and sites like aitsl can support you outside the school environment 24/7. As a teacher you work in a local context but connectivity means you can engage with the whole world and sustain yourself in that way. Three key messages from TeFL which this video draws clearly into focus are:

Learning as a way of being
Co construction is the key
Find every person’s strength.

I was reminded of this video because aitsl put a tweet out about it. My Twitter feed  keeps me strong and connected with the fundamental building blocks of creating a sustainable classroom with an invincible teacher!
