Teacher Performance Frameworks

I have been following with much interest the blogs, news articles and debates about teacher rating occurring in the USA. Part of my interest stems from the discussion that is starting to occur in Australia, driven by our Federal Government, about teacher performance and productivity.I want to say something upfront…See More

Growth Mindset and School Cultural Change

Recently I wrote a  reply to a school who was asking me about Growth mindsets as a school philosophy and also how to go about framing the need for school cultural change. While I was writing it I realised how critical what I was writing was for many schools. As such I have included it for all of you. I would love any thoughts you have.Do you know of a ‘template’ or model for a curriculum framework?When you say “curriculum framework” it could mean many things… so I have found and edited a…See More

Building a High Performance School – Communication and Barriers

As long time readers of our blog will know I am working with a number of schools to support them in creating a culture of high performance learning. If you read back through the blogs you’ll find some of the earlier discussions we have had around becoming clearer about what was their actual vision for the school and what that would look like.We are now moving from the WHAT to the HOW. This requires us to explore WHO we need to enrol in the new vision and also addressing some of the barriers…See More

What house do you live in?

It might seem odd to begin a blog post with this title but hopefully you will find that the analogy is quite apt.We all live in houses. However, the style, the quality, the fittings, the size, and the neighbourhoods that our houses are in are all different. It seems to be a trend in most countries that many people aspire to the larger house, the higher quality fittings, the expensive neighbourhoods, the more impressive styles, and so on. It would be a rare person that aspires to a small…See More

Developing 21st Century School Leadership

 I have realised over the past 6 months how few schools are actually clear about what their long term vision is. Part of the impact of this lack of vision and disciplined building of this vision is that schools can quite often be focussed on things that disperse their power and ability. They become like a thirsty person wandering in the desert – going from one mirage to the next. Teachers become inured to change and morale can suffer. In an increasingly competitive educational and financial…See More

From Age to Age - the effects of the shift in educational paradigms

It is currently a frustrating and challenging time in education. It seems as if teachers and educators are speaking one language and having one set of outcomes for the students they teach, and politicians, the media, and parents are speaking another.Because they are.It is occurring because they are standing in different paradigms. We are in the midst of the biggest paradigm shift in the human existence and we all are experiencing issues that I suggest are normal to the shifting of paradigms.To…See More

What makes a High School Exemplary

As an Australian Educator looking at the current discussion and debate arising from the "Waiting For Superman" movie I am interested in getting some feedback to a report I have written about on my personal blog (http://blog.intuyuconsulting.com.au/) about How High Schools Become Exemplary. The report was actually written in the USA but it highlights a point of view I believe that is missing from the debate currently raging in the US.See More

A student’s performance is mostly impacted by three communities

  1. The School Learning Environment
  2. The Student’s Peer Community and their own beliefs about learning
  3. The Parental / Family Community

Schools tend to spend most of their time, money and energy working…

Purpose + Alignment = Success

Posted on October 6, 2013 at 3:05pm 0 Comments

Many years ago when I used to teach engineering at university I had a passing interest in the field of shape optimization. It was a fascinating field because the idea of optimization in my particular area of expertise revolved around designing software that could optimize the placement of material so that, for given forces and stresses, the software would design the best and lightest shape of an object to withstand the given input.…

Success Criteria -the Missing Link in the Learning Partnership?

Posted on July 5, 2012 at 3:55pm 0 Comments

Most of the teachers I work with, in schools all over Australia, have for some time included Learning Goals or Learning Intentions in their planning and use these with their students. Some teachers use WALT (What Are we Learning Today?) or simply begin with the phrase ‘Today I am learning to...’ In some learning spaces, the Learning Goal has a designated space on a whiteboard or noticeboard so that the students can refer to it as they work. If the learning community is further along on their…
