Transcript of ATL Skills @ GSLC

Finding out
Reflecting/Taking action
The ATL skills compliment our IB learner profile - the IB mission statement in action.

To come alongside this and be woven throughout is our College commitment to the Positive Education framework for student well being.

Drawing conclusions
After conducting a SMART organizer we decided that a 2-year rotation of ATL skills across subject areas is the most achievable and effective means of explicitly teaching the ATL models assigned to our subject area.

3 per year, per year level, per subject.

Subjects are responsible for teaching that explicit ATL model, so the skills can easily be transferred to other subject areas.
Tuning in
Sorting out
We have adopted the Fairview International School in Malaysia's approach to the explicit teaching of ATL skills.

- Effective models for learning that students can use not just in school but also beyond the College grounds

- Shared responsibility for the explicit teaching of ATL skills

- Transfer of skill knowledge across all subject areas

- Drawing together of affective skills and academic skills to continue to live out the IB mission of a holistic education for all enrolled in the MYP programme.

Models are structures and graphic organizers for learning.

Going further
How can we explicitly teach these models within our inquiry units?

How can other subject areas and learning experiences benefit from our having explicitly taught an ATL skill/model?
Why ATL skills? Within our classrooms at Good Shepherd, 'we are currently preparing students for jobs that don't yet exist, using technologies that haven't been invented, in order to solve problems we don't even know are problems yet.'

Purpose of ATL skills:

- Tools for learning
- Self-regulated and independent learners
- Transfer of skill development across the MYP learning areas.

The role of self-assessment and ATL skills:

Novice/beginning - students are introduced to the skill, and can watch others performing it

Learner/developing - students copy others who use the skill with scaffolding and guidance

Practitioner/using - students employ the skill confidently and effectively

Expert/sharing - students can show others how to use the skill and accurately assess how effectively the skill is used
