Assignment louise thomson - ideate - design challenge brief

  1. 1. IDEATE ASSIGNMENT Louise Thomson Melbourne, Australia
  2. 2. Malcolm NEEDS a way to engage the parents, students and associate teachers to focus on creating interest and passion in their education and how it will help their work situation in the future. PROBLEM STATEMENT Because Malcolm knows that when focused and caring TIME is spent with the student & parent there is success.
  3. 3. Themes of ideas .. Culture & Team Workshops: • Pre-year event with parents & teachers • Camp with teachers & students • Key personality to inspire students • Parents to run some of the education • Incorporate team building activities • Live in week – create bonding • Teachers to be skilled to tackle issue • Kids host workshops to share their trade • End of year activity to celebrate achievements • Teachers given special skills to deal with these students – their own workshops • Invite academic students to teach peers – visa versa • Students set „code of conduct‟ for the year • Create a „school‟ council where students drive the day to day business Environment: • Create separate school • Set up a drop-in centre • Provide cool technology • Bring trade learning back into school e.g. carpentry work needed • Link all senior kids together – doesn‟t matter what they study • Complete a climate survey to check on feelings • Make area cool & attractive – so that other students what to visit • Offer evening classes rather than day classes • Kids responsible for the up- keep of their school campus – applying their skills • Attendance & participation = selection of studies to attend Leadership: • Create mentor teacher program • Involve parents to coach students • Link parents & teachers in teams • Create buddy program with other academic students • One teacher responsible for end-to-end relationship • Program for parents • Mentor program with community leaders • Support families with mentoring • Bring „success‟ students to talk to current students • Leaders created within student group – self reprimand Curriculum • Adopt best practice – from OS • Combine these students into other classes – don‟t segregate • Students review effectiveness of education – to gain buy-in • Send kids to other schools to report back • Reality program – would you survive in real world – make it a game • Kids to teach teachers their trade learning's • Kids to teach other school students their trade learning's • Bring business folk to teach opposed to real teachers • Create semesters of schooling Add Value: • Pay students if they attend • Create a points system to turn into technology or holiday money • Create rewards system that links to their trade – earn more certificates • Coaching program post studies to get job • Job finding placement program associated with school – more time, more attendance • Reward family financially if kids complete studies and attend school • Reward the „work hirer‟ if their students come to the school – win-win-win
  4. 4. These students need to be part of the curriculum, cult ure and campus design. Lets create our own cool campus – make it appealing to attend. It‟s got to be a win- win-win. Student – Parent – School. “What‟s in it for me!” What will work … narrow down my ideas ….. Establish relationships from the beginning – go on camp.
  5. 5. IDEA ONE Create a separate campus for these students. We need to make this venue unique to the learning styles – more focus on looking like the work environment. Create separate and focused teaching team – so that there is more intense interaction opposed to multiple – touch points. Encourage the students to be part of the designing so it suits them and not the just the teachers. IDEA TWO Team & Culture Building Camp for parents, teachers and students. Establish the right relationship at the right time – at the beginning with all stakeholders together. Create trust & respect by using specific „real life‟ Activities. The climate & culture can be established with all parties. The doing and feeling can be agreed upon. IDEA THREE Implement Achievement of Curriculum Rewards Scheme. As in the work-place, there has to be a win- win scenario. If they do their work, they receive a reward. These can be certificate or cash related. For example, extra curricula certificate s or points for an iPad or Phone voucher. The rewards can be linked to obtaining time away from school – attendance = achievement.

  9. 9. He and many other teachers have relationships with these specific students. He has good conversations, communication and trust with each student. He calls „a spade a spade‟. The Do: He feels challenged given the curriculum & teaching structure, student touch-points with too many teachers & staff and an inability to build relationships with parents who‟s „ego‟ get in the way. The Feel: I gather he thinks he could change the system if given the opportunity. He‟s had success with a couple of students & their parents and this could easily increase if he had more time, support and had a better relationship with the student‟s family. The Think:
  10. 10. Kids not academically minded, only there to eat, they want to leave school however parents want them to stay. Kids come to school for three days to attend five subjects with several „teacher‟ touch points: one teacher manages their Trade school day, their house-coordinator, sports coach, Pastoral care and a separate teach manages their „work‟ day. During their three school days, it‟s challenging to keep their interest „high‟, keep them on task with work and keep parents informed of their progress. The Say:
