Securing Commitment, Ensuring Success

  1. 1. Securing commitment, ensuring success<br />www.oureducationnetwork.com<br />
  2. 2. Too much innovation<br />“One of the most critical problems our schools face is not resistance to innovation but the fragmentation, overload and incoherence resulting from the uncritical and uncoordinated acceptance of too many different innovations”<br />Fullan & Stiegelbauer, 1991<br />
  3. 3. Almost Everything Works<br />95% of all things we do have a positive achievement on education<br />When teachers claim they are having a positive effect on achievement or when a policy improves achievement, this is almost a trivial claim: virtually everything works<br />
  4. 4. Effects on Achievement (Hattie, 2009)<br />
  5. 5. Not everything counts<br />Not everything that counts can be counted, and not everything that can be counted counts<br />Sign hanging in<br />Einstein's office at Princeton<br />

  12. 12. A vision is shared by the people who create it<br />
  13. 13. Hogsnes School & Kindergarten, Tønsberg, Norway<br />Hogsnes school is a learning organisation. We share experiences and are working with things we are good at. We have a shared and living vision and are in a developing process, in which everybody is participating and is going in the same direction.<br /> We have an engaged, motivated staff who are willing to learn. We seek new understanding and knowledge. We have staff with positive values, humour and a glint in our eyes! We see possibilities and take challenges. <br /> We have a culture for giving feedback to each other, across the whole organisation. We see each other. We respect each other. We are good role models for the students. We collaborate positively with the parents and see them as an important resource.<br /> At Hogsnes School and Kindergarten the child is central. All children and students grow both socially and academically through individual learning plans with appropriate targets. We visualize and document results. The parents and children understand the progress that students are making, and understand the process of learning. The working environment motivates and energises staff and children. Children and staff support and strengthen each other. We build self-confidence and self esteem in our children and help them to be independent. Our students want to learn and collect evidence to show their progress. They use different learning strategies.<br />
  14. 14. Your vision is the star by which you navigate<br />
  15. 15. Teaching and Learning Vision<br />At RMGS we create critical, reflective and independent learners for life through a learning community which provides a secure and challenging environment. <br /> <br /> We believe deep learning is facilitated through outstanding teaching and occurs when all learners are actively engaged in a variety of tasks, taking responsibility for their own learning and progress, collaborating and thinking with shared expectations of success.<br /> <br /> At RMGS through innovative learning strategies and positive relationships our students enjoy learning and achieve their full potential.<br />
