Transcript of Subject Support SOLO Training

SOLO Taxonomy
A brief introduction
Theory lessons
Whatever method, key aim is to go from shallow to deep learning.
Mastery of the content.
Mastery tasks - developmental tasks.
Real understanding of the topics.
SOLO Taxonomy
SOLO does all of this in one method (and in a clearer way!)

SOLO taxonomy (structure of observed learning outcomes) provides a simple, reliable and robust model for three levels of understanding – surface deep and conceptual (Biggs and Collis 1982).
SOLO Taxonomy
Easy tool to help measure progress within learning.
A very effective way to differentiate the learning intentions/outcomes/tasks of the lesson.
Easy to create success criteria to help structure progress and learning.
Self assessment rubrics help progress & AfL
Brilliant for exam question planning
I am not sure about this topic
I do not know anything about this subject
I have one idea about this topic/subject
Gathering individual pieces of information
I know several things about this topic/subject
Gathering multiple pieces of information
I'm not able to see how they interlink yet
I can link the pieces of information together
I see the bigger picture
I can identify relationships between points
I can look at topics in a new and different way
I can go beyond this topic and link to others
Why does SOLO fit very well with PE?
SOLO allows you to:
Clearly structure progression in lessons ( V's Blooms taxonomy or assessment levels)
Makes this progress extremely clear for students
Helps peer assessment (Feedback AND Feedforward)
Allows the questions 'What am I learning? How am I doing? What do I need to do to develop a deeper understanding?'
Creates a clear language for learning
Allows easy differentiation
Measures progress
Allows S.C criteria to help structure progress and learning
Self assessment is very easy
Works better when students are involved
SOLO Language of Learning
By using the common SOLO language:
Learners can actively move through the stages and clearly identify steps to progress
Powerful tool
SOLO Taxonomy
Provides an effective planning structure that helps you move students from surface to deep learning
If fully shared with students, it allows them to see how & what is needed to make progress within their learning
Is purely designed to develop learning and show progress
Thrives on AfL
Its sole purpose is moving students through a learning journey to a desired outcome
"This is where a student rethinks and reflects on their new understanding at the relational level, looks at it in a different way and uses it as a basis for prediction, reflection, summary or creates new understanding"
Course aims
Basic understanding of how to create a theory lesson that goes from shallow to deep learning.
Find a structure for planning lessons that take this journey.
Gather a basic understanding of SOLO taxonomy.
Understand the the key components of SOLO taxonomy.
How to use this structure to incorporate visible progress, assessment for learning, differentiation and formative assessment.
Link theory to the exam.
Examples of shallow to deep learning in theory lessons.
Choosing a method that works
The Accelerated Learning Cycle
