While working on my discussion forum about visible learning I learned something! I realised doing this blog was apart of the visible learning instructional strategy! The depth of my knowledge into this topic is becoming a well and I found a great article supporting transparency in the classroom.
Here is an excerpt from the article:
Blog. Teachers and students alike should consider blogging because it helps make our thinking and learning visible. We need to be more reflective as professionals and we need to model and encourage reflection for our students. The best teacher blogs are ones that share insight into the classroom experience, sharing the ups and downs, the successes and failures. Consider that by having a blog, other teachers just like you might have the courage to try something or learn from you. Blogging is one of the most transparent and scary things we can do as educators. It is also one of the ways we can regularly communicate with and invite parents into our classrooms and the insights we bring to our profession. For students, it provides them a voice and an opportunity to very publicly wrestle with questions and concepts for an audience far greater than their teacher and classmates.
Hmmm, may have to post this on the discussion forum!!
