Leverage your Pedagogical Gifts to Maintain Relevance
with Karen Bonanno, National Director, Eduwebinar Pty Ltd

Emeritus Professor, Frank Crowther, coined the phrase ‘pedagogical gifts’. He identifies ‘gifts’ as the unique talents, personalities, values, passions and interests of teachers in the everyday life of the classroom, and considers multiple meanings of pedagogy to then energise teaching.

 

In this session we will explore a process to identify your natural gifts/talents. Participants will complete a short psychometric questionnaire to identify, broadly speaking, their talent pool.

 

We will consider the pedagogical contexts within which your natural talents can thrive. As we explore the ‘cycle of relevance’ and events that can potentially lead to irrelevancy, we will consider five strategies that will help you to achieve viability and contemporary relevancy in your school community.

 

This digital broadcast is designed to encourage individuals to think about their future and take action to re-set their professional pathway.

Become a Leading Learner: Future Learning for Student Engagement replay

Throughout history there has been several changes in our capacity to learn. With each change it has increased our ability to learn more efficiently and effectively. Each paradigm shift in learning builds on our ability to learn through time and ultimately addresses the visual, auditory, kinaesthetic and read/write preferences. An emerging shift will challenge how schools will successfully engage students in learning as the learner seeks access to anything, anywhere, anytime, from any place and with anyone.

 

With the shift in skillsets required by our young people, schools need to be responsive to the way technology is integrated to assist learners to be smarter in their learning, thinking and doing. There is also a corresponding need to design learning spaces that will support the varied learning needs, interests and talents of each learner. The dynamics of teaching and learning will change to provide learning opportunities that will engage students with everyone needing to be a leading learner.

 

This webinar will explore the paradigm shifts in learning and then progress to the impact emerging technologies will have on instruction, learning environments and methodology. Primary and secondary teachers and teacher librarians will be able to consider a response to future learning by understanding

  • how we learn best,
  • the impact of new and emerging technology on teaching and learning,
  • how the redesign of learning spaces can assist future learning, and
  • the need to provide variety in learning opportunities.

All participants will be provided with the opportunity to identify their range of learning preferences and natural learning capabilities prior to the webinar. This information will be explored during the live broadcast.

Become a Leading Learner: Connected Learning – A Smart Framework for Educators replay

As we move forward with the use of a range of technologies and pedagogies to meet rapidly expanding future needs, teachers are deluged with expectations of becoming a future oriented teacher to meet the future learning needs of our students. There are numerous frameworks to use when planning curriculum activities and the challenge is to decide which one best fits a given set of needs. Frameworks need to provide guidance and structure while still enabling flexibility. Connected learning, design thinking and digital literacy are principles, methodologies and literacies that must be incorporated into everyday teaching if future learning needs are to be met.

 

During the webinar, participants will explore some frameworks and discover one framework for learning developed by the presenter. All participants will have access to this framework after the webinar.

 

This webinar will explore a range of learning frameworks and how digital learning can be embedded within them. Primary and secondary teachers and teacher librarians will be able to further explore

  • how they can add value to their teaching through use of a newly developed framework,
  • some embedded digital literacy practices, and
  • a number of pedagogies that support connected learning.

Questions and Questioning Frameworks for Inquiry Learning
with Kay Oddone, PhD Candidate & Sessional Academic, QUT

 

[Note: As we are now in Daylight Saving Time in Australia, please check the time of the webinar for your time zone, e.g. NSW, ACT, VIC, TAS = 8.00 pm, QLD = 7.00 pm, SA = 7.30 pm, NT = 6.30 pm, WA = 5.00 pm]

 

How might we design learning experiences built upon curiosity and inquiry? It’s all about questions!

 

In a world where answers seem so easy to come by, it is important that we explicitly teach students how to ask effective questions. Knowing how to formulate critical and incisive questions, and how to use questioning to gather accurate and relevant information is a key skill which underpins all stages of the inquiry learning process. Questioning is central to learning – and yet it is easy to allow this skill to slide under the radar, and even more tempting to shut down questions in an attempt to cover content more quickly.

 

In this webinar we will explore a range of question types, and investigate different questioning frameworks and strategies to actively develop students’ questioning skills. The webinar will provide insight into how questioning changes throughout the inquiry process, and will offer participants the opportunity to consider how they use questions and questioning within their own practice.

 

Outcomes for attendee:

  • Become familiar with a range of question types and questioning frameworks
  • Draw connections between different types of questions and stages of inquiry
  • Learn strategies to develop students’ skills in creating effective questions
  • Reflect upon the role of questioning in contemporary learning

Kay Oddone is an educator with experience across a range of settings, having worked at school, system and tertiary levels. She is currently completing the final year of her PhD research, investigating the role of personal learning networks in teachers’ professional learning. She has presented at a number of national and international conferences, and blogs at www.linkinglearning.com.au . Her interests include networked and connected learning, critical and digital literacy, contemporary libraries and resourcing as well as reading, cooking and travelling.

Become a Leading Learner:  Connected Books: Getting Smart with Literature replay
Content presented by Dr Jennie Bales, Adjunct Lecturer, Charles Sturt University

 

[Note: As we are now in Daylight Saving Time in Australia, please check the time of the webinar for your time zone. e.g. NSW, ACT, VIC, TAS = 8.00 pm, QLD = 7.00 pm, SA = 7.30 pm, NT = 6.30 pm, WA = 5.00 pm] ]

 

Literature plays a significant part in our understanding of, and appreciation for, the world we live in.

 

Developing students into life-long readers has cross-disciplinary significance that goes beyond ‘being literate’ to impact on attitudes, beliefs and responsibilities. Increased access to technology and advances in publication and distribution of texts in multiple formats and genres offer exciting opportunities to engage students in literature and literary practices in and beyond the classroom. Technology enables students to experience and appreciate literature in new ways to build on proven practices. It has the power to expand individual and group reading horizons as they share and celebrate their reading experiences with others to build a reading community that transcends the classroom walls.

 

During the webinar participants will be introduced to a range of digital text types, explore online pathways for responding to literature and consider options for participating in reading communities.

 

This webinar will explore a range of technology-based options to broaden students’ reading experiences. Primary and secondary teachers and teacher librarians will be able to add to their literary practices as they are introduced to:

  • a range of web-based literature for personal reading and shared reading,
  • individual and group literature response activities, and
  • options for publishing and accessing students’ responses to their reading experiences.

Jennie’s passion for children’s literature has spanned a lifetime – as a reader, teacher and teacher librarian. Her current endeavours as an adjunct lecturer with Charles Sturt University, social media editor for the CBCA Tasmania, reviewer and sales representative for INT Books keeps her immersed in children’s literature. She sees technology as a springboard that can deepen the reading experience. Jennie is inspired to explore ways to harness the digital world, to expand students reading horizons, and to connect with others to celebrate great reading experiences.
