  • I would like to spend a short amount of time talking more in depth about the dilemma of implementing strategy focused on improving teacher effectiveness. As demonstrated at the ACER conference this year, there is a recognition of, and genuine interest in, what comprises effective teaching. This recognition is across the spectrum, from systems and governing bodies to individual teachers. While systems have the overwhelming desire to implement strategies focused on improving teacher effectiveness, teachers are frequently grappling with moving from a very safe and isolated professional environment. In a direct form, moving meaningfully on teacher effectiveness is too big a jump unscaffolded. In this paradigm, the arguments can be reduced to this...(click) and begin to exemplify the polarisation seen in the profession during EB negotiations. To deal with this, I believe ML can play a critical role. ML can go a decent distance to flipping this polarisation and realigning how NSW DEC gather data on teacher effectiveness and student achievement. Importantly, it can guide the putting in place of a process that guides teachers in developing their professional practice.
  • Communication in ML is the core concern of the system. ML brings all stakeholders into the picture of improving learning and achievement. Students, teachers, parents and systems all have a critical role in ML, not a superficial role on any front. ML doesn’t invite sporadic views. Instead, it requires all stakeholders to contribute to the system regularly, and take from the system regularly. This happens through the monitoring of learning through formative progress, feedback and goal setting. It happens in the snapshots of learning regularly shared with the community. It happens in the goal setting and teacher planning activities that feed the system. And we are sure there are more ways that systems can gain from and contribute to the program.
  • There is a clear 8 step process teachers follow when using ML...
  • I would like to talk about how our work has led to the development of a system that is very different from most LMS The majority of LMS have web presentation of work and interactive tools for students as their driving force. Students are invited to access resources and explore things on the web. The tight parameters tend to be in submitting assignments and receiving grades within the system. Sometimes, there is a small amount of organisation put into monitoring student progress. ML has classroom monitoring and formative progress as the core function. It places responsibility for monitoring student achievement in the hands of the teaching professional and the student. Importantly, it places emphasis on the whole learning process. Most LMS ‘invite’ the students and relevant stakeholders to view student progress. Some allow the parent to contact the teacher via email in this module. ML does not invite, it is built on promoting meaningful learning partnership. It regularly emails relevant stakeholders meaningful summaries of student progress, requires students to engage in reflection on their learning (as part of the summary), and requires goal setting action to be engaged in by students in collaboration with caregivers. As stated just before, most LMS are focused on presentation of information and the marking and recording of summative work. ML is driven by a process where teachers plan learning and teaching from the information on student learning they have, they trial effective classroom practice and reflect upon it, they develop meaningful feedback loops that both give and receive appropriate next actions for the teacher and for the learner. Most LMS are untested in the effects they have on student achievement, and certainly in the effects they have on developing effective teaching practice. ML is built on effective teaching research that provides the basis for ongoing improved student achievement.
