Making Connections, Charlie Sweet, Hal Blythe Nov 2011

Making Connections, Charlie Sweet, Hal Blythe

Hal Blythe

Last summer as instructors at a creative-writing conference, we had an experience that made us better writers. While critiquing a promising piece of fiction, we became frustrated because we couldn't put our finger on why the story didn't quite work. The tale, which centered around a young soldier's baptismal firefight in Vietnam, at first seemed solid. The main character was believable, the setting was described in gritty realism, and the plot had a beginning, middle, and end. But although the story was technically correct, it didn't really capture our interest. We found we couldn't get ...

School Governance : Research On Educational And Management Issues, John Ainley, Phil Mckenzie Jul 2009

School Governance : Research On Educational And Management Issues, John Ainley, Phil Mckenzie

Dr John Ainley

In a number of countries the past 20 years have seen increases decentralisation of authority for a range of decisions to individual schools. A range of arguments has been advanced in support of decentralisation but a common belief is that shifting authority to schools will enhance the quality, effectiveness and responsiveness of public education. This paper argues decentralisation is not a unitary concept and can be applied to different elements of the teaching and learning environment: curriculum organisation, financial management, personnel management and resource allocation. Research that has investigated the impact of decentralisation itself on student learning outcomes has not ...

Looking For Evidence In The Teaching Of Mathematics, Ray Peck, A Bishop, S Bennett Nov 2000

Looking For Evidence In The Teaching Of Mathematics, Ray Peck, A Bishop, S Bennett

Ray Peck

The joint Australian Association of Mathematics Teachers AAMT/Monash University project 'Excellence in the teaching of mathematics: professional standards project' has been working with teacher focus groups in four states to try and build a picture of what mathematics teachers believe represents excellent teaching. This paper discusses the second aim of this project: to develop an assessment scheme and protocols for certifying this excellence. Topics discussed are developing ways to assess excellence, looking at an American model of assessment - the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards (NBPTS), and other models for standards of excellence in teaching.


Additional Assistance : Counting, Duality And Compression Of Number And The Counting Slide, Mary Delahunty, Catherine Pearn Nov 2000

Additional Assistance : Counting, Duality And Compression Of Number And The Counting Slide, Mary Delahunty, Catherine Pearn

Catherine Pearn

At the beginning of 2000 the principal and staff of St Catherine's, Moorabbin, Victoria, instituted an additional assistance mathematics program within their school to support those children identified as being at risk in the early years. Children in Grade 1 and Grade 2 were the focus for withdrawal and support and were offered three sessions a week withdrawal and some whole class skills activity sessions for the year. Classroom needs was the focus for Grade 3 and children who were specifically targeted in relation to place value and the laws of mathematics received one session per week withdrawal for ...


Methods 1/2/3/4 : Tasks Designed To Develop The Characteristics Possessed By Talented Mathematicians, G Williams, G Cowling, Ray Peck, J Ripon Nov 2000

Methods 1/2/3/4 : Tasks Designed To Develop The Characteristics Possessed By Talented Mathematicians, G Williams, G Cowling, Ray Peck, J Ripon

Ray Peck

This paper discusses group learning among VCE mathematics students at a combined schools' workshop in Hamilton, Victoria, and at Gippsland Grammar. When tasks with the potential for collaborative groups to discover complexities are used in conjunction with a teaching approach like class collaboration students tend to engage with the tasks, more frequently display the types of characteristics possessed by talented mathematicians, and develop new mathematical understandings. Anecdotal evidence suggests that the tks described in this paper are suitable for such a purpose.

Benchmarking Educational Websites: Edna 1999, Claire Campbell, Gerald White, Liz Babidge

Dr Gerald K. White

The advent of the Internet and the use of the World Wide Web (www) have changed the ways people and organizations disseminate information, broadened the means by which industries worldwide deliver services and, in so doing, shortened the distance between members of the global community. These developments have also provided implications and opportunities for the establishment and maintenance of mutually beneficial online alliances worldwide. EdNA Online - an online manifestation of the networked education community in Australia (hence the acronym EdNA for Education Network Australia) - plans to be in a position to capitalise on these national and international strategic alliances. The ...

Steven R Rogg

Evaluation of the first year implementation of the Museums and Public schools (MAPS) initiative is reported. The MAPS initiative is described in its original proposal in the following way: “Guided by the Chicago and Illinois academic standards, (MAPS) …will, over time, make museum resources a creative and integral part of classroom learning and teaching.

Distance No Longer A Barrier : Using The Internet As A Survey Tool In Educational Research, Katherine Dix, Jonathan Anderson Jun 2000

Distance No Longer A Barrier : Using The Internet As A Survey Tool In Educational Research, Katherine Dix, Jonathan Anderson

Dr Katherine Dix

The existence of the World Wide Web clearly provides new horizons for educational research. In particular, one aspect still in its infancy, is the use of the Web to access individuals as research subjects, which is emerging as a major, new research tool. This paper discusses the processes involved in developing online surveys and how these may be administered to participants in a research study however dispersed they may be, provided there is access to the Internet. Although there are distinct advantages in using the Internet as the interface between researcher and researched, there are difficulties too, and these are ...

Learning Technologies Project 2000 Student Data : Executive Report, Katherine Dix

Dr Katherine Dix

The DECStech 2001 Learning Technologies Project was developed with the major aim of maximising the uptake of purposeful use of technologies to improve student learning outcomes through using a network of nine Discovery and Global Discovery schools. One of the strategies developed to achieve this was the development of an online survey which measured and tracked changes in students' attitudes regarding school, self-esteem and the use of technology in learning. The survey was administered annually over a three-year period to all students in years 5 to 10 in the nine participating schools. This report provides a summary of the data ...
