In theONE6 we have started the Term re-visiting
The MAIN question I put to my kids was this...
What are the reasons some teachers are changing things from the way it has always been?
The discussion was vibrant and because many of my class are into their 2nd year of this change, this wasn't too hard to come up with some reasons.
We also discussed Self Regulation and all the concepts this involves like:
Goal setting * Planning * Motivation * Self monitoring * evaluating * Engagement * Help Seeking * Strategic thinking
Here are some comments which came out of the survey we carried out so we can learn from the kids what WE as teachers can do to help them with Setting Goals and Motivation...
“I need to be reminded about my goals so I would like a goal book, a wall display and / or a digital format to help me with this.”
“Having our goals displayed in the room or on the top of our timetables will mean we can see them easily everyday.”
“We should have ‘real time’ goal setting conferences / discussions”.
“We get motivated when we use different digital tools that WE choose to show our learning.”
“We get motivated when we get to choose what we learn because we can relate to it and it makes it interesting and engaging also when something is new to you or when you are curious about something it makes it really interesting.”
“We get motivated when we discuss our learning with our mates and the learning is fun.”
“We get motivated when can listen to music.”
