  13. 13. It takes a village to raise a child: Our students will not be educated by teachers working in isolation.
  14. 14. Many teachers have come to the conclusion that their job is not just difficult—it is impossible. If schools continue to operate according to traditional assumptions and practices, we would concur with that conclusion. Individual teachers working in isolation as they attempt to help all of their students achieve at high levels will eventually be overwhelmed by the tension between covering the content and responding to the diverse needs of their students in a fixed amount of time with virtually no external support.  DuFour, Richard; DuFour, Rebecca (2010-06-01). Learning by Doing: A Handbook for Professional Learning Communities at Work (Kindle Locations 2494-2498). Ingram Distribution. Kindle Edition.
  15. 15. These are our kids: These are my kids, my room, and my materials”—must give way to a new paradigm of “These are our kids, and we cannot help all of them learn what they must learn without a collective effort.” “The idea that a single teacher, working alone, can know and do everything to meet the diverse learning needs of 30 students every day throughout the school year has rarely worked, and it certainly won’t meet the needs of learners in years to come” (Carroll, 2009, p. 13). Jonathan Saphier (2005) was exactly correct when he wrote, “The success of our students is our joint responsibility, and when they succeed, it is to our joint credit and cumulative accomplishment” (p. 28).  DuFour, Richard; DuFour, Rebecca (2010-06-01).

  16. 16. Old School Teaching and Learning We used to do this in the 1950’s. Hopefully we don’t do it now!!
  17. 17. In the old school, who would be able to find out how a student is going, what work a student owes and what work is due in next? The Teacher (Yep) The Student (Sometimes) The Parent (Only if the student wanted them to know) The LG Teacher (No) The Year Level Leader (No) The Assistant Principal (No) The Principal (No) The Student Welfare team (No) The Integration Aide (No) The Tutor who works with the student. (No) Any other teacher at DSC (No)
  18. 18. Who should be able to find out how student is going, what work a student owes and what work is due in next? The Teacher The student The parent The LG Teacher The Year Level Leader The Assistant Principal The Principal The Student Welfare team The Integration Aide The Tutor who works with the student. Any teacher at DSC (Login As a student)
  19. 19. When should someone be able to find out what work a student owes and what work is due in next? Anywhere anytime
  20. 20. How do we make that possible? • We put our courses online • We put our due dates online • We put our assessment results online • We get our students, parents and teachers used to working this way. • We don’t work “old school” • We don’t work in isolation.
  21. 21. Moodle Tip 1: No Student Planner Mantra from all of us. Students need to check 3 places everyday. 1. Eworkspace 2. Moodle 3. Email (via Outlook) Encourage them to set up school email on their phones. Moodle pushes feedback via email. (Have you noticed?) Set up courses on Moodle to push out communication LG’s, Activities, groups.
  22. 22. Moodle Tip 2:  Use Progress Bars on your courses.
  23. 23. Moodle Tip 2:  Use Progress Bars on your courses. Why? Cause they work.  We asked our Year 8’s “What helps you keep up to date with your work?

  25. 25. Moodle Tip 2: Standard Right Side of all courses. 1. Top Right Progress Bar 2. Upcoming Events 3. Calendar
  26. 26. Moodle Tip 3: Purpose of Online Assessment Results Online assessment should work as a student/parent self-monitoring tool. Students should be able to look at the online grade book and have it give them two things. 1. Feedback on tasks already completed. 2. An indication of any tasks that have not been completed. Gaps in the grade book should indicate work that needs to be submitted.
  27. 27. Moodle Semester 2: Hide or reset Semester 1 courses. Do not run whole year courses. Start a new course for semester 2. Hide almost everything in your course to start with. Have a category in your grade book called. “Not used yet” and move everything into it. Hide it. Keep it simple to begin with!!
