Monday, Amber and I attended a Visible Learning workshop, where John Hattie was present to discuss his research and book., Visible Learning for Teachers: Maximizing Impact on Learning. The presentation was chock-full of rich conversation around the effects that increase student achievement, with Angela even commenting that “this was the most impactful PD she has attended!” Hattie’s evidence consists of over 30 years of research of 280,000,000 students, worldwide! What did Amber and I gain? We gained a better understanding of the numbers behind the second goal NM’s Professional Development Plan. Hattie’s book is the building block of NM’s Building Leadership Team, whose members will be branching out and working with subgroups formed by the teaching strategy each and every one of you chose. My favorite quote from John Hattie, on Monday, was “I Don’t care about how you teach, but care about the impact”. We all have different methods of teaching, but ensuring those methods are impactful must be the priority. Amber and I look forward to putting Monday’s learnings into practice!
