Data Gathering Processes:


Starter/Taster

Do classroom environments reflect the learning that is happening? EG Where did we start, where did we go and where are we going?

Facilitation strategies:

As Facilitators, when we work with teachers, are these things clear?

Guiding Questions:
Are learning intentions clear? How have these come about? Negotiated or curriculum documents? What is it we want to achieve? How do we know if we have achieved this? How can we revisit learning to show how the task has be enriched?
Are teaching interventions and strategies clear?
Are thinking interventions clear? Are ICT interventions clear?
Are e-learning practices and processes obvious?

Template when working with teachers:
From Instep learning case 4
  • identify the students’ learning needs and how the lesson will address those needs;
  • discuss the key principles underpinning the teaching;
  • discuss how they will be able to tell that students are learning what they need to learn;
  • identify the teacher’s goals for their own practice and learning;
  • clarify the teacher’s and facilitator’s expectations of the observation.

One School's Story: Podcasting at Point England School

Point England School did well to address authentic integration of ICTs to specifically address oral literacy needs. They started with the children, a need, a specific learning intention. They identified student learning needs and ways in which new technologies could engage and enhance learning opportunities.
[[http://manaiakalani.blogspot.com/ ]] Post on the Literacy Cycle is particularly interesting.

For a more detailed analysis read Dorothy Burt's e-fellowship research, "The lure of Podcasting"
Dorothy says, ""eLearning when grounded in a carefully constructed pedagogical framework framework is contributing significantly to both engagement AND student outcomes in literacies as tested by asTTle, STAR etc.".
