What is your impact? How do you know?
KNOW THY IMPACT
Effect size answers
"It really comes down to not who teachers are, not what they do, but how they think. And if they think primarily that their job is to evaluate their impact, all the good things follow." -Professor John Hattie
The 10 teacher mindframes
"Adults go to counselors and invest a great deal of time and energy into practices that will help them shift their Mindframes at home. We need to do the same for our Mindframes that we carry to work with us everyday."
I am an evaluator- my task is to evaluate the effect of my teaching on students' learning
I see assessment as feedback to me- assessment is a reflection of my effort more than the students
I collaborate- while teamwork is essential, adults don't do it nearly as well as students
I'm a change agent- the success and failure of my students is about what I do (or don't do)
I take on challenges and don't fear failure- making errors is the best way to learn
I talk about learning, not teaching- this keeps the students at the centre of the conversation
I engage in dialogue not monologue- this involves listening much more than talking
I engage in positive relationships- in class, in school and across the workplace
I use the language of learning-so that everyone knows what successful impact looks like.
I see learning as hard work- I persist and think deeply
"Collaboration, which brings together diverse thinkers who engage in authentic conversation, can help shift our thinking which inspires us to grow as learners. It's why Twitter is so popular with educators because they find professional and personal learning networks which help them think outside the box. Imagine how much better it would be if we didn't always have to go to social networking for that and could find it within our own buildings as well."
The belief in a universal bond
of sharing that connects all humanity.
