Event Details

REMOVING THE FLAT LINE

This event will help to establish a network of schools which recognise that many teachers are being overwhelmed by the information network and the internet. Students now have access to an almost infinite array of information, web sites, support structures and resources. Many schools could not hope to afford or to assemble these resources and strategies in a single location, even in digital format. So how can teacherssupport students who learn independent of the teacher via the internet. This project aims to help teachers manage  the situation where the student uses these resources to progress independently far beyond the goals of the curriculum, the objectives of the teacher's class and those of the school.

Moreover the teacher is faced wth a class where the majority of students  may be struggling and need constant support and scaffolding.Many of these students are considered to be AT RISK and teachers feel the pressure to focus on these students.How do teachers cope? How can a teacher organise a class so that every student is challenged at their ZPD? How can we ever manage teaching in traditonal classes with so many valuable (and many rubbish) sites available to the students? Let's learn together and  make what we learn available to all teachers.

Studies as diverse as NAPLAN, TIMSS, and PISA consistently show us that students in the top levels of ability appear to show no improvement and the graphics present a flat line! Join us in helping teachers and students who struggle to cope with the pressures of education in an information age. Learn with us how teachers develop their own self regulated learning skills, attitudes and knowledge and how this, in turn, can help them to model and develop these skills in their students. Let's all learn together how these new skills can lead to improved achievements in reading, mathematics and problem solving. Then let's put what we have learned into an accessable site where all teachers (and possibly parents) can improve students' maths, reading and problem solving skills, attitudes and knowledge. Finally, let's get together and  rid our schools of that persistent  flat line graph which has the unpalatable interpretation that our teachers don't, won't or can't teach bright kids. Let's put that to rest forever!  Come to the workshop at University of Melbourne on February19, 2016 and commit to work with us throughout  2016 and 2017
