Tomorrow, I will be presenting (virtually) at TeachMeet Tees 12. Following on from TeachMeet Oxford last week, I have made a few alterations to my presentation on Independent Learning. It is a little leaner; with greater emphasis on strategies and approaches to encouraging learner independence.
Here are the revised slides. Click on the cog to access speaker notes.
Having spent a considerable amount of time evangelising AfL & Google Docs, I felt it was time to turn my attention towards another topic: Independent Learning. I completed an M.Ed module earlier in the year and it is going to feature significantly in my dissertation.
Therefore, I decided to pull together some of the most valuable (IMO) arguments and ideas I have encountered so far; alongside some of the strategies and tools that I have been using with my students; seeking to help them become more independent learners.
I’m giving the presentation it’s maiden run at TeachMeet Oxford this evening. Here are the slides, click the cog to access my speaker notes.
Yesterday evening, while I was participating in Year 10 Parents Evening, a fantastic set of educators convened on Clevedon School for TeachMeet Clevedon. Organised by the inimitable Mark Anderson (@ICTEvangelist), the event was packed full of innovative and thought provoking talks. You can watch a number of these presentations on the TeachMeet Clevedon YouTube channel.
Unable to attend the event, I recorded a video, presenting the work I have been doing with Google Docs to enhance Assessment for Learning. (Point of note, for someone who suffers from perfectionism, presenting live is so much easier than recording something in advance.)
