OK, so the ‘Action Plan’ category of my blog is looking pretty light…but I’m OK with that. I’ve really been in an information gathering and big-time learning phase. And while that certainly won’t diminish, I am at a point where I can commit myself to some concrete action!
The first (and potentially biggest – with regards to scale) is the co-leading of entire school professional learning around the ‘whys’ and some of the ‘hows’ of integrating technology into lessons in order to shift pedagogical practice.
My wonderful senior manager and I have formulated this fabulous overview:
Every staff meeting this year (great commitment from the school) will be based around a 20/20/20 model: 20 minutes (probably from me) on the big-picture idea of shifting pedagogy and why we should bother; 20 minutes spent in a self-selected, practical, hands-on workshop; and 20 minutes of reflection, for example updating a professional learning portfolio (commenting on those RTCs!).
I’m feeling very positive and excited about this learning plan. I’m filled with hope 🙂
