This PREZI explores key challenges for teachers and parents with regard to engagement. It is more a set of provocative questions than answers. Please do comment, especially if you are coming on 10 Jan or call me on 07974 228396 to discuss.

Transcript of ONE Community, 10 January 2013, APT Behaviour for Learning


How to engage the disengaged students?

How to get the C/D borderline students to tip over into the C/B/A/A* zone?

How to get you and your colleagues fired up, inspired and highly focused?

How to get the behaviours that allow teachers to focus on teaching and learning rather than petty discipline and disruption?

How to ensure you really do tap into the potential of each and every student?

How to find excellent value, professional and dynamic CPD for all your team?

How to generate some passive income for the school?

How to make role modelling compelling and irresistible? Differentiation Intuitive, Unconscious, Learning and Thinking Empathy, Listening, Attention, Respect How does Role Modelling actually work? The message you communicate is the response you get Whatever you think you taught, you actually taught what they learnt... so if students learn to feel anxiety, boredom or resentment when you discuss maths, that's what you taught them...

if they learn that you want respect and attention but you don't give them respect and attention, then you taught them that you are a hypocrite If you have learnt to feel positive and excited by my willingness to acknowledge your professional integrity and credibility... if you have learnt to feel accounted for and listened to whenever you are with me... what you have learnt is to feel positive and excited, accounted for and listened to whenever you work with me... you have anchored these feelings to my presence... you will be engaged... it will happen AUTOMATICALLY... If I believe that you want me to pay personal attention to you for 50 or 100 minutes a week but that you are only going to give me 15 minutes personal attention, once a term then what might I infer from this? unconscious processes
innate capacity and willingness of all children to learn
the transferability of learning from one context to another
paying attention to signs of learning even when the student isn't aware 'Personality'
Beliefs and attributions
Expectations (social/cultural)
Beliefs about ability - your beliefs about their abilities
Current level of understanding
Conscious and Unconscious modes of processing information and ongoing experience
Preferred learning styles
Current most effective learning style
Current engagement and focus of attention
Personal preferences and interests
Successful strategies (or talents if you must)
Lots of other ways to differentiate... but notice I haven't mentioned 'actual' ability Belief and expectation are key factors... Rosenthal and Jacobson, Claxton Engagement The proposition:
Here's what I am demanding from you this evening:
Pay attention for 20 minutes
Listen to me 95% of the time
Think about what I want you to think about in a way that makes sense to me
Accept that I know things you don't so there is no point in me asking you lots of questions because you just need to sit still and listen and then you will understand.
Accept that you have no choice in the subject matter we are going to focus on
Accept that you have no choice about being here. You have to be here and you have to stay until I tell you that you can go.
Do things after you leave here according to my demands or I will make you come back and stay here longer and at a time that is inconvenient to you.
That you put aside anything you are currently interested in, curious about, excited or inspired by and focus on what I am (or at least, before I went into education, what I used to be curious, excited, and inspired about). EMPATHY Here's what I am inviting you to engage with this evening:

The idea that there are many different levels in which human beings can and do pay attention.
That over the course of 20 minutes you focus and levels of attention will vary significantly and that this is something that all teachers and trainers can use to their students' advantage.
The presupposition that the more I listen to you the more you will be engaged and consequently, the more you will learn.
That you think about what want you to think about in a way that makes sense to you.
That we accept that we all know many things and that we all experience many unique and interesting insights and that the more we share these the more we will all learn.
That you ask many questions in areas that interest you.
That you can come and go as you please so long as you are not disrupting anyone else's learning.
That we all follow up this evening with a concrete proposition for a way forwards. An Alternative Proposition What is generally true about the experience of being a human being?
What might be specifically true about being an individual human being right now in this room?
On how many different levels can you describe the subjective, unique ongoing experience of being an individual human being?
Besides my ongoing experience/perspective and your ongoing experience/perspective, what other ongoing experiences and perspectives could we take account of? PACING AND LEADING 1.You can change your beliefs

Owned by you
Expressed in sensory rich terms Experiential... because I want you to feel the power of the processes involved and imagine how deeply this can engage students... and theoretical because I know you will want to know that there is a structure to all of this... that it is all 'learnable'.
