Can you track how your school vision is embedded in curriculum units? Can you see how the vision comes to life in your online learning environment? Finally, can you then see how achievement of such goals is measured through student performance in course assessments?
How do schools get better at achieving goals that are most important to them? We have been exploring this question in a series of free Curriculum Breakfast Masterclasses held in Australian capital cities. Besides an opportunity to meet great educators, we have received positive feedback on the direction we’ve taken with Edumate’s Curriculum Mapping and Delivery software. This software helps schools accurately map their curriculum back to their required standards, as well as embed their own school’s values, vision, and frameworks directly into unit planning.
How can you integrate five great pedagogies into your curriulum strategy?
This Webinar illustrates how a school can integrate 5 effective pedagogies into a curriculum design workflow to achieve the student success they envision.
The thing that consumes the most time in every school is often the most over-looked. Sure, leaders and teachers put a lot of time and effort into their curriculum, but this can be motivated more by a need to comply than a drive to excel, and in the press of the urgent, teachers’ efforts can often overlook those aspects that make your school special. This Webinar provides 5 reasons why a curriculum needs to be designed, not merely "covered."
Most schools have a vision for themselves and some take the next step to articulate a vision for student success. But how many schools can point to exactly where achieving these visions happen in every classroom? This webinar details 3 steps a school can take to bring its vision to life and make it more likely all teachers target what matters most.
Not long ago, schools were struggling to provide students with access to computers, the Internet, and advanced software. Today, many students enter our classrooms with all three right in their pockets or backpacks. How can we take advantage of our new Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) reality? We might look for answers in blog posts and articles bearing titles like "20 Awesome Digital Learning Tools," or "100 Top Apps for Learning." We might pore over online collections like APPitic to find the latest and greatest education apps. But is more technology the answer? Will the newest digital tool really show us the way?
Large organisations rely on people, each with their jobs to do. And what each does impacts on the whole. Decades back it was recognised that how people ‘saw their jobs’ undermines or adds value to what they do, thus affecting the organisation’s overall success.
Two truths are clear. Technology changes rapidly and schools change very slowly.
Many in society have personally experienced the power of technology to enrich their learning. Such things as social media, on-demand audio-video streams and an unlimited array of newspapers, magazines and special-interest communities make this the best time for accessing learning opportunities that humanity has ever known.
