  • N - what else do you need to know or find out about this idea
    E - excited - what excites you about this proposition
    S = what is your current stance or opinion on the idea or proposition? How might you move forward in your evaluation of this idea or proposition?
    W = What do you find worrisome about this idea or proposition?. WHat’s the downside?
  • Program gathered dust on the shelf - no-one referred to it just the text
    oDifferent Approaches in different schools
    oStatic
    oSeparated from resources
  • •Dependence on Text books
    oThe textbook is the syllabus – right?
    oThe answers are always in the back
    oSafe
  • •Importance of involving faculty in programming
    oIt needs to be a collaborative document
    oOwernership - know where each piece fits - otherwise disjointed
    oI ended up writing almost all the Unit Plans at Coffs
    oElectronic version didn’t work
    oPrinted out copies
  • Unit plans had resources electronically linked
    oBut people were using the paper versions – and links don’t work well on paper
    oReflection statements were tokenistic
    oAnnotating the programs didn’t work – no one did it
  • •New curriculum offers an excuse
    oLine in the sand
    oOpportunity to rethink our pedagogy
    oA challenge
    Less time to get to know the staff and their strengths at a new school
  • •A fresh approach to programming
    oHow good would it be if programs were truly collaborative
    oIf the units of work were dynamic documents with interlinked resources
    oIf the documents were useful!
    oLearn from my previous mistakes
    oUnfortunately the BoS programming tool doesn’t yet allow true collaboration
    o
  • •Scope and Sequence generated by a team of 3
    oA long term staff member
    oA newly qualified teacher (retrained engineer)
    oA teacher with experience but new to the school
    oGiven free reign – with no reference to the textbook!
  • •Use of Program builder
    oVery easy to generate scope and sequence - even colour coded for different strands
    oNice to produce templates into which outcomes and descriptors are automatically generated
    oTemplate customisabliity – we included Inquiry questions
    oExport format a bit icky
  • •Set Up of [email_address] - Google Drive account
    oNot waiting for rollout across DEC
    oWill be easy to transfer to Google Apps in DEC – hopefully!
    oAll staff created their own gmail acouunt (If they didn’t have one)
    oA structural outline created
    oUnits generated from Program Builder reformatted, uploaded, and covereted to Google Docs
  • Device neutral - kinda (can’t edit tables on iPhone/ ipad)
    True collaborative environment
  • Experience Line…..
  • •Staff nominated which unit they wanted to create for Year 7
    oThe first thing many did was pull out the textbook!
    oRedirected back to the syllabus
    oI have produced instructional videos on how to upload files and link to them from within the program
    oWarning Google Drive doesn’t really work on IE8 – was on most of our staffroom computers! Solution get the local administrator password and install Chrome!
  • •Many year 7 units are now finished! (so I have been told!)
    oNow for Year 9, Year 8 & Year 10
    oNext phase is to get people looking at each other’s work and adding to the ideas & resources
    oConcept of Learning Activities – individual teacher planning choosing activities from within the unit that suit the learning needs of their class
  • oOf, For and As learning
    oWe included this in our assessment overview to allow an easy Gap analysis of where we are focusing on predominately one type of assessment
    oNeeds a change in pedagogy and focus to succeed
  • N - what else do you need to know or find out about this idea
    E - excited - what excites you about this proposition
    S = what is your current stance or opinion on the idea or proposition? How might you move forward in your evaluation of this idea or proposition?
    W = What do you find worrisome about this idea or proposition?. WHat’s the downside?
