#3. Explain why you judge this to be the most important and catalytic issue of learning for this group of learners this year (In chemistry, a catalytic substance one which increases the speed of a chemical reaction)
Problem: A number of learners do not make National expected shift in Literacy
Session 1: Who am I doing it for? Catalyst
What do the learners need?
How do you know that?
Data I have already collected (Whanau voice, Manaiakalani, Stonefields, Agency Tool)
Positive, thoughtful, helpful
Catalyst Game Tracker
Reflection 1: What is the data this year showing? Progress is a completely different thing from achievement.
I need to go back to the data to get my pre data which links to the CoL where Aaron has mentioned that we need to ensure we have our pre data so that we can get information to ignite our problem.
Pre Data - Whanau engagement
Feedback on my tool….
Good thinking for two window portal as it allows my learning to be separate from the instructions. How do I make the teacher portal accessible for parents?
There is a lot of notes and vocabulary which is needed but how do we make it accessible for all learners? How can I make voice buttons? How can I get student voice?
I have created a bank which is needed but how do I allow learners to create their own banks as well? Could this link to the multimodal approach?
I need to think about Learn Create Share in my practise when creating this.
Session 2: Who is in your team?My echo chamber:
Reflection 3: Who do I need to connect with next? Who can I work with to challenge my thinking rather than support? Who is my new lense person? - Get links from last year MIT course. I need to connect with Kate de Groot to think about how we can grow the use for whanau? How do I get people linking in other schools that give secondary voice?
Session 3: Ed Tech eg Gerhard 90 minutes - how will they create as well as listening to you?Get your participants active. What are the prompts you have put in place to avoid hiccups. How am I making the session obvious?
You are presenting to people not from NZ - how do you explain what you mean in a neutral way? ‘Our day to day’ How do they structure their year groups?
Make a really good mix of the practical with the good ideas and research
Will it be do then talk about then create? What will the hook be?
Less is more on the slides - how can you make it rewindable? Remember your slides are not presenting your slides you are!
Although we do not know what the future holds I feel we have to attempt to understand what qualities and skills will be needed/desired to be successful adults: creative, risk takers who can self regulate and adapt to a changing environment (with confidence or resilience?). - That's my thoughts anyways. Helping children to accept and understand what ‘comfortable with being uncomfortable so you are prepared for anything’ means.
