According to John Hattie the best teachers are not lecturers or even facilitators, they are “activators.” If we expect our teachers to be activators in today’s flexible learning environments, then we must also expect them to somehow be in front of each student and in each group at exactly the time they are needed. Because…
  • Teaching and learning opportunities are constantly popping up around the classroom. Teachers must have access to feedback from the students to inform their literacy instruction.
  • One of the most important elements in learning is the teachers understanding of how students are progressing, allowing the teachers to meet students at their point of need. How do you know what information/literacy skill focus the students need at any given time?
  • Teachers see the final product, but what did the collaborative process look like to get there?
  • How do teachers build a level of confidence and trust that students are doing what they need to do in collaborative groups?
  • How do teachers know when a student or group has something worth sharing to the whole class? How can they make that happen efficiently?
This session explores how innovative audio/visual technology (Activate by Lightspeed )  was used by teachers to address these challenges to enable effective collaborative practices amongst students. Hear and Learn, a Gold Sponsor of the conference, is the exclusive Australian distributor of this patented, world first technology.
