More opportunities to `talk’ and `create’<br />Is this then a cycle for developing independence and innovation<br />Is it just applicable to students?<br />
How does this link to Independence?<br />Talk and Create supports independence<br />IL develops most when students:<br /><ul><li> Participants/investors
How does the use of technology support this shift?
Are staff and students skilled to deliver this shift?
How does providing the right climate for change </li></ul> support this shift?<br />
From your own experience, how much<br />do you agree with the following statements?<br /><ul><li>Learning is most satisfying and enjoyable when done `with’ people.
Someone who learns from and `with’ others is then more likely to learn by themselves.
The key to getting people to change their behaviour (become more independent) is whether they know and respect others that do the same thing. They will then take more personal responsibility to change as they are `within’ a group dynamic.</li></ul>Is it just applicable to students?<br />
Learning will demonstrate more of....<br />Students reporting back on what they have learned<br />Students becoming their own teachers <br />Students looking and finding the answers<br />Students willing to take risks/have a go<br />Students being inquisitive, asking questions – leading the class dialogue<br />Students pursuing their own interests and passions/ many will have their own projects on the side!<br />Students choosing their own study methods/materials<br />Students carrying out investigative/ extended learning<br />
Teachers will be saying more of....<br />How did you do that?<br />How else could you have done that?<br />Who did that a different way?<br />Which are the tricky bits? What’s tricky about them?<br />What could you do when you are stuck on that?<br />What would have made that easier for you?<br />What else do you know that might help?<br />How could you help someone else do that?<br />How could you make that harder for yourself? <br />How could I have taught that better?<br />Who wants to lead this!<br />
Students will say more of ....<br /> “I feel more involved in the lesson’<br /> “The teacher made it feel as if it was our project, not theirs”<br /> ”We knew how to improve and edit our presentation as we were making it”<br /> “I like being challenged to come up with my own questions”<br />“It was good making up our own mark scheme as it made us think more about what success should look like”<br />
In short..........<br />“Students working harder and YOU working smarter!”<br />
Impact of all this..........<br />“Students will develop greater skills and capacity to learn and this will in turn make them more independent.”<br />
‘The test of successful education is not the amount of knowledge that pupils take away from school, but their <br /> appetite to know and their capacity to learn.’ <br />Sir Richard Livingstone, Oxford, 1941<br />‘Pedagogy should at its best be about what teachers do that <br />not only helps students to learn but actively strengthens their capacity to learn - in and beyond school.’ <br />David Hargreaves, SSAT, 2004<br />
