    Planning a numeracy program Planning a numeracy program Presentation Transcript

    • Planning a numeracy program
    • Program design is a balancing act ∗ Between: ∗ Individual learner needs, goals, learning styles, barriers ∗ Needs, levels and interests of the group ∗ ACSF levels ∗ Training package or accredited course guidelines ∗ Learning context ∗ Needs of other stakeholders
    • ∗ Using the information from the learner’s initial assessment and interview: ∗ Needs – where are their strengths & weaknesses ∗ Goals: where are they aiming for: ∗ job, ∗ help children/grandchildren, ∗ Another course, ∗ Consider short and long term goals ∗ Learning style. Is there an obvious one? ∗ Barriers to learning: ∗ inside classroom, feelings about numeracy, confidence ∗ outside classroom, personal issues, restrictions Individual learner needs, goals, learning styles, barriers
    • ∗ Make a class profile (Use the information from each learner’s initial assessment and interview): ∗ Learning style, what are the various styles in the class ∗ Dynamics: ∗ Mix of ages, ∗ Mix of genders, ∗ Relationships within class Needs, levels and interests of the group
    • ∗ Government funding requirements, e.g. LLNP ∗ How does this affect the class? ∗ Are all students required to meet the same goals? ∗ What are the ACSF indicators of each learner ? ∗ What are the implications for the class? ∗ Spikey? ∗ Similar? ACSF levels
    • ∗ Content is described in the elements and performance criteria of the curriculum ∗ In numeracy it is often written from a ‘concept’ aspect ∗ However, ∗ delivery is expected to be ‘in a context’ ∗ Real life Training package or accredited course guidelines
    • ∗ Is the delivery: ∗ Community based? ∗ In a classroom ∗ In a hall or other ∗ Is it a workplace context? ∗ WELL funded ∗ Employer funded ∗ Is it a VET context? ∗ In a vocational class, assisting students, team teaching ∗ Tutorial support, removed from the classroom ∗ Other context? Learning context
    • ∗ Who are the other stakeholders? ∗ Employer ∗ Centrelink ∗ JSA ∗ …? Needs of other stakeholders
