Notes from Andy

Monday 13 January 2014

GOOD MORNING EVERYONE....

THANK YOU...


to Peter A, Paddy, Jason M, Flora and Mark M, who were receiving and responding to emails from me last week - invaluable input for us as we look to make our most important decisions.


in anticipation, to Maria and Dion who will take us through our next steps for our Collaborative Inquiries, at staff meeting, this week. This is a more flexible model than the one we started with, as a result of our last session with the external consultant. I am really excited about it. Maria and Dion have joined the planning group after their work last year.


also to Bruce, Natalie K, Kirsty, Tina, Jason M and Adrian for the prep for CPD on Friday.

Collaborative Inquiries

As we head into the next phase of thinking about what our inquiries might be, thought these quotes and excerpts are appropriate...


If you are thinking of trying something quite different.....


"The great schools and colleges...constantly innovate and they're not afraid of getting it wrong"


"No student had their entire education ruined because of a learning innovation that didn't come off"


If you are worried about not knowing "HOW" to do your inquiry...


"it's about mindset as much as it is about skill set"


if you are still unsure where to start.....try starting with...


"what is important for my learners to learn?"


Have a great week. Looking forward to the discussion and feedback on Tuesday
