Abstract

Teachers across Australia inspire students to love learning. Our best teachers are constantly evaluating their impact on learning outcomes and adapting their practice – balancing the art and science of teaching. As we move rapidly towards the third decade of the 21st century, there is more pressure than ever for all teachers to deliver both deep discipline knowledge and the skills students need to survive and thrive in the workplace of the future. We need to use technology and data to support teachers to maximise learning outcomes for their students. This has to be done in a way that helps teachers, rather than placing an additional burden on them. Being able to more accurately identify where each student is at in their learning, and delivering the next challenging but achievable step, will maximise student engagement and inspire a love of learning.

The science behind the art of teaching: Evaluation as inspiration

Teachers across Australia inspire students to love learning. Our best teachers are constantly evaluating their impact on learning outcomes and adapting their practice – balancing the art and science of teaching. As we move rapidly towards the third decade of the 21st century, there is more pressure than ever for all teachers to deliver both deep discipline knowledge and the skills students need to survive and thrive in the workplace of the future. We need to use technology and data to support teachers to maximise learning outcomes for their students. This has to be done in a way that helps teachers, rather than placing an additional burden on them. Being able to more accurately identify where each student is at in their learning, and delivering the next challenging but achievable step, will maximise student engagement and inspire a love of learning.
