Visible Learning

Visible Learning 

 
We pride ourselves on making learning visible.
Learning progressions are displayed in ‘learner friendly’ language to help our learners know where they are and what their next learning steps are going to be.
 
Where am I now? How do I know?
How am I going? What do I need to learn?
Where to next? Where am I heading? What is my goal?
 
 
By making learning and progress visible we empower both our learners and their parents.
We aim to be consistent across the school. We are developing students who understand what they are learning, why they are learning and who have high expectations of themselves.

The Learning Pit

 
We are developing a shared language of learning within our school.
Glenholme Schools’ vision and learning philosophy have emerged from John Hattie’s research and principles of visible learning and visible teaching.
 
It draws on internationally acclaimed research in Visible Learning: A synthesis of over 1600 meta-analyses relating to achievement (2009) and his book Visible Learning for Teachers: Maximizing Impact on Learning (2012).
 
Learning Pit: From time to time students find themselves in the learning pit when they encounter difficulties. The pit provides a process for them to resolve their issues in a timely manner. Teachers encourage and support students to use our learning dispositions as they work their way out of the pit.
