Curious to Competent: Change teacher practice one stylus at a time

Building successful blended learning involves understanding how students are engaging with classroom experiences.

Nayland College’s Ako Tikanga programme brings together four strands to our learning programme by weaving together visible learning, PB4L, relationship-based learning practice and blended learning.

This session is the story of teachers building the conditions for their own personalised professional growth and how teachers use technology to foster engagement and raise student achievement.

Participants will hear the findings from our teacher-led innovation project (10 case studies over 2 ½ years) and learn to use the Teacher Guide developed during this project. A unit planner with a difference:  learn how to co-construct sequences of learning that first build engagement, then explicitly teach the use of tech tools and then explicitly and thoughtfully integrate technology.

This work enables transformational shifts in teacher practice. Teachers given agency and can successfully use tech tools to bring together the two halves of the curriculum – key competences and achievement objectives.
