The RVHS Learning Puzzle – Be part of it…..ZEST via media

We have just started to work on our vision for the spring term. Our T&L groups will be working on the following:

Group A – Teaching and Learning e-newsletter

The aim is to publish at least 3 newsletters this academic year. These e-newsletters will be available on our website and twitter and will publicise the excellent work here at RVHS.

  1. Effective Feedback
    Collate examples of best practise – student questionnaires
    Track journey of new marking policy and current evaluations
    Impact on progress
  2. Differentiation
    Review of best practise at RVHS
    Research current practice – focus SEN/ students arriving on 4c
    Trial innovative ideas, paired observations
  3. Literacy Focus
    Writing frames , showcase literacy across the curriculum, literacy intervention, accelerated reader, promote use of key words, use of reading ages to aid progression in the classroom

Group B – Digital Leaders

Consider… Do the students know more about the technology than most of us?
What can we learn from the students?
What will happen if we give the students a voice in their learning?
How can we use technology in the classroom?
What ideas can groups trial in the classroom:

  1. Create a group of digital leaders – Work with students to identify areas of the curriculum that could be enhanced – ‘Zest’ by the use of technology
  2. Students help to plan lessons in these identified areas, train the teachers in the use of technology
  3. Case study – students i.e. Gaming in media
  4. Trial the use of tumblr.com , Edmodo or google.docs as a platform to run a group project
  5. More Able students – working independently on extended project using platforms such as Tumblr, WordPress, Wikispaces or Google docs

We will keep you updated…

    Hi sharon. Students using WordPress would be good for them. I assume they will be allowed to each have their own accounts.

    By the way, more data is creasted in 2 days than from the dawn of man until 1976.
    Amazing christmas cracker fact.
