Imagine students who describe their learning in these terms: “I know where I’m going, I have the tools I need for the journey, and I monitor my own progress.” Now imagine the extraordinary difference this type of ownership makes in their progress over the course of a school year. This session highlights how to make this scenario an everyday reality in your classroom — one that will significantly increase your students’ capacity to thrive as they take responsibility for their own learning.With its foundation in John Hattie’s Visible Learning research, and Fisher and Frey’s Surface/Deep/Transfer instructional framework, this breakout session dives into the critical component of self-assessment. Building and Developing Visible Learners reveals: 1) How to partner with students to develop ‘student clarity’ around learning, 2) How to create a classroom culture where errors are viewed as opportunities to learn, 3) The most effective types of assessment and how each can motivate students to higher levels of achievement, 4) How to introduce students to the tools they will use to support their own learning, along with the know-how they need to choose the right tool for any learning challenge, 5) The learning strategies, including cognitive, metacognitive, and motivational strategies, that fuel student progress, and how to give students opportunities to use them, and 6)Real-world examples of the strategies and tools at work. Inspiring and practical, this session gives participants an understanding for empowering students in shaping their own educational success.
