Mainly we are thinking about the balance that is needed for each. What we have agreed, as a school, is that it needs to be flexible, and it shouldn't be 100% anything.
However, it wouldn't be teaching if everyone had the same opinion. Each teacher appears to have taken a different approach. And everyone tends to think that their approach is the right one. Interesting.
During my reflecting on all this, I remembered this useful info-graphic.
I like this and it's worth keeping in mind for a few reasons:
- The student is at the centre, with specific and individualised goals, needs and preferences
- Self paced implies a lot of student directed activities (study) rather than a lot of teacher led activities, I think
- The one on one teacher tutorials are an important part of the process
- Feedback is a key ingredient (John Hattie agrees)
