Teachers are biggest effect

Having re-read some of John Hattie's research about the teacher having the greatest effect on learning. It seems to be reinforced as I watch the teachers in the xbox colab project working with learners and running their classes. I recorded the video below with Jo Wilson asking questions of Geoff Booth. I see how this is reinforced. The use of xbox 360s is succeeding because of:

  • clear instructional design
  • collaborative design
  • student voice
  • pursuit of key competencies
  • patience
  • research
  • organisation
  • feedback
  • emotional engagement

By the way the video was taken using my mobile phone a nokia n95 I am quite happy with the quality.
