    24. 25. Julia JJ Model Practices Principles Beliefs And Values
    25. 26. Values can be chosen consciously to be a tool that allows us to choose a new set of futures……. <ul><li>What do we believe about how people learn? </li></ul><ul><li>What do we need to do to improve our practice so that it truly reflects our values and beliefs? </li></ul><ul><li>Can we as a community possibly reach agreement on our values and beliefs? </li></ul><ul><li>How can we state our values and beliefs explicitly and specifically? </li></ul>
    26. 27. Core Values / Competencies <ul><li>In groups of three look at the key competencies. 3 pair shareback. </li></ul><ul><li>Collective grouping of what we think is important </li></ul><ul><li>What would this look like in your school? </li></ul>
    27. 28. Classroom of the future <ul><li>See the students in their learning environment. Watch the students involved in learning, see the teacher. Note how the students relate to each other….to the teacher. ( Hattie ) </li></ul><ul><li>How are the students interacting with technology and learning to learn </li></ul><ul><li>Share back- note similarities and differences </li></ul>
    28. 29. How do each of these technologies change the possibilities for the way we design ‘schooling’? It is really only in the last twenty-five years that new technologies have been developed which are capable of challenging educational practices of the factory era.
    29. 30. Values required for the future worker <ul><li>What skills do you believe our students will need when they leave school? </li></ul><ul><li>Share with a partner </li></ul><ul><li>Feedback </li></ul>
    30. 31. Today’s workers need to forget having a job completely and look instead for work which needs doing and then set themselves up the best way they can to get that work done. William Bridges “Jobshift” How would you feel? What skills and attributes would you need to develop your work in this way? Communication skills Problem solver Teamwork skills Networking skills Know self/self confidence Effective learner Resilience Take risks Initiative Creative & critical thinking Market self Specific skill set Literacy skills ( text, visual, electronic) People management Flexibility/adaptability
    31. 32. Beliefs Clarification <ul><li>From the statement arrange yourself on a continuum from strongly disagree to strongly agree. ‘ We value Collaboration. We believe students can and do learn from each other’ </li></ul><ul><li>Explain why you have placed yourself there </li></ul><ul><li>… It is one thing to identify our values it is a different matter to examine our practices in terms of our values and beliefs… </li></ul>
    32. 33. Core Value + Beliefs: Why We value collaboration, We believe that students can and do learn from each other <ul><li>Principles ( How) </li></ul><ul><li>We will help students learn skills for effective collaboration </li></ul><ul><li>We will create opportunities for students to learn from each other </li></ul><ul><li>• Practices ( What) </li></ul><ul><li>We will teach communication, listening, group role skills </li></ul><ul><li>Develop understanding of different styles of thinking, personality, leadership </li></ul><ul><li>Group assignments, tasks </li></ul><ul><li>Classroom seating arranged flexibly to allow for ease of group work and individual work </li></ul><ul><li>Peer tutoring Teach Process skills </li></ul><ul><li>Learning to learn pedagogy Expert groups </li></ul><ul><li>Evaluation against agreed rubrics </li></ul>
    33. 34. Developing congruence between our beliefs and actions <ul><li>With a partner </li></ul><ul><li>Each identify one of the values or beliefs about learning </li></ul><ul><li>How in principle do you respond and work towards this belief? </li></ul><ul><li>Give 3 examples of practice which are congruent with this principle and its underlying belief </li></ul><ul><li>Identify barriers to this belief being lived out in practice </li></ul><ul><li>Identify a practice which is not congruent with your belief </li></ul>
    34. 35. Being the best we can be…… <ul><li>Is what we are doing in line with what we value and believe? </li></ul>
    35. 36. Our challenge is to transform education for the Technology Era. Our challenge is to design practices that maximise learning opportunities made possible by the technology era.
    36. 37. The Technology Era demands:  we are all multi-literate and in particular to be     Information & Communication Technology     literate  the development of learners who have the    capacity to be receptive, adaptive,    responsive, supportive and self determining     within learning communities .
    37. 38. <ul><li>To respond to the challenge we need an understanding of: </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>the nature of the Technology Era </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>what constitutes powerful learning </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>effective learning & teaching processes </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>cultural transformation and change </li></ul></ul></ul>
