  • The development of Learning Goals should be a shared process of recording, monitoring and reporting on personal learning goals, involving conversations between the student and the teacher. The conversations need to be relevant, and related to each student’s needs. “Express Space Learning Goals” Ultranet DEECDMuch teaching and learning has occurred between teacher and student/s to support students creation of SMART learning goalsWhen working on reflections, students will need to identify their progress so farThe purpose of reflecting is to monitor and record progress and plan the next stepUse sentence stems and reflection rubric to support students to write reflections Dot point 3 :may include setting a new or amended goal)Rubrics -areas to consider include: reflection, dialogue, decision-making and content or evidence.
  • In a sense both learning goals and metacognition are in the hands of the student. Students are takingaction to improve their learning while it is in process.

In Episode 4 we learnt what arereflections and why are they importantReflections are self assessment…“Effective assessment empowers students to askreflective questions and consider a range of strategiesfor learning … Students, as active, engaged, and criticalassessors, can make sense of information, relate it toprior knowledge, and master the skills involved …Students are their own best assessors.” Earl, L. M. (2003). Assessment As Learning: Using classroom assessment to maximize student learning. Thousand Oaks, CA: Corwin Press.
    6. 6. Where arewe from?
    7. 7. POLLAs part of the series of sequential PL did youparticipate in iMasterclasses Learning Goals – Reflections part 1 last Thursday? Did you know?

You can watch the recordings of these sessions and pick up all the resources from the iMasterclasses Design Space
    8. 8. Setting learning goals is anongoing and cyclical journey
    9. 9. Reflections on goals Core conversations about the progress to achieve learning goals between student and teacherThe teacher can support by asking students questions that will• Probe student’s evidence of progress towards their goal – data, work sample• Investigate students thinking and opinion of their progress – focus attention on students understanding of their own strengths and areas for improvement• Revisit student understanding of their current knowledge and of what knowledge they need in order to improve
    10. 10. Metacognition is about:• Being aware of what needs to be done and what options and choices are available to do it• Self-monitoring (or regulating) thoughts and actions to keep focused on the goals and the best pathway to achieve them • Self-evaluating progress and taking steps to change direction if necessary. (Wilson 2000) More examples of metacognitive questions: – What are the steps I need to take? – Are there two possible strategies I could try? – Which is the best strategy to take? – What should I focus on first? – Am I concentrating on the right part? – Is there a strategy I haven’t tried? – What would improve my work?
    11. 11. Rubrics• Deciding on rubrics or sets of easily understood criteria that describe qualities of successful achievement and show progress towards achieving personal learning goals. These rubrics or criteria can: – help students picture the type of knowledge, skill and behaviour they need to have developed – help them to identify evidence – keep track of their progress towards achieving their goals.• Rubistar http://rubistar.4teachers.org/• Find rubric• Keyword search eg. listening• Search found: Attentive listening in the upper grades by Author: Ms. Greenwald Date Created: February 24, 2010 which was then saved and personalised
