Opaheke School - A primary school in New Zealand we work quite closely with. They have taken on visible learning practices because they have strong evidence that it makes a positive impact on their students' outcomes. Their students are empowered to direct their own learning beyond their time at Opaheke because they are active participants of their learning.
Worst mistake ever..........on a bus trip a "High School" couple was sitting together rather closely near the back of the bus. The next day I heard some rumors about the couple's bus ride back. I attempted to address the situation and it totally blew up in my face. Never was able to repair the relationship with one member of the couple. Really messed up.
Oh gosh, that sounds awful... thanks for sharing. Would you not have addressed it at all or just used a different approach?
Some of you may know that this year we have introduced a 10th Mindframe 'I/we collaborate'. This case study from Oxley College, Australia talks about developing a culture of collaboration. We would love to hear your thoughts about collaboration in your school and/or day to day practice!
