How can teachers make the most of their professional learning?
It is understood that the learner must take responsibility for learning, for the hard work and perseverance that are required to make knowledge stick, for practising skills and for achieving outcomes. Recently new ways of supporting students to take responsibility for their learning have emerged. These look at teachers engaging with processes that make the ideas they have been taught - heard, read, Tweeted and viewed - so that they can practice the changes of behaviour that new skills require. Creating a short video is one novel idea but we would love to hear how you are documenting your learning journey. Read the blog here.
