Professor and author John Hattie studied the effect of different factors on educational outcomes. He found that teachers who demonstrate "Golden Rule" through the "8 Mind Frames" were more likely to impact student learning on a grand scale.
1. My fundamental task is to evaluate the effect of my teaching on my students' learning and achievement.
2. The success and failure of my students' learning is about what I do or don't do. I am a change agent.
3. I want to talk more about learning than teaching.
4. Success is about my impact.
5. I teach through dialogue not monologue.
6. I enjoy a challenge and never retreat into 'doing' my best.'
7. It's my role to develop positive relationships in class and staffrooms.
8. I inform all the language of learning.
This video of an interview with Dr. John Hattie "Visible Learning - An interview with Dr. John Hattie" discusses self-regulation and life long learning.
I appreciated the term "Activator" vs "facilitator". Surface vs deep knowledge and how most teachers teach more to surface learning instead of ACTIVATING learning. To be an activator, you are active! 'Its not about what teachers do - but how they think - know their impact on students learning'. "It's not who teaches art, it's not what they do, it's how they think". 'Evidence of learning is more than just test scores'. "how do I know this is working?"...... "It's about growth", "are you a change agent or a facilitator?".....Good stuff!!
