I certainly believe in the merit of STEM subjects, however, actually believe we need to look further than 1 dimensional educational strategies and look at what we are doing in Education Holistically. Is STEAM still on the table for example and how successful has its concept and plan been implemented. Technology should work alongside Designers and Artists and people who are the creative thinkers and Strategists. Maybe more creative people in Politics could be a breath of fresh air, we are however emotional at times because we feel and see things others do not. Come on Education Minister, lets look at Finland and read Sir Ken Robinson's articles then lets put our heads together and strategise for the Nation, oh and yes maybe pay teachers the same as Politicians as they used to be in the past and you will have experts a plenty!
Effective, targetted feedback for learning is what will make the difference for students. If I know what I have done well and why, and I know what I could try to achieve my target outcome, I can have another go to reach success. When teachers do not give honest feedback to students, they are allowing students to underachieve.
A great article, and so very true. How did our profession get to such a low point? In my role I see teachers working so hard, yet I see many, many kids not working. They have got it wrong! Students have a job to do, and teachers I suggest that you make it clear to your students what their job involves. As the teacher, you have a responsibility and must do's, as students they too have responsibilities and must do's. Otherwise, they are not doing their job as a student. Make a class chart so students are able to self-reflect i.e. "I did my job today when I ..." or "I did not do my job today, however, tomorrow I will ..." Something as simple as this may help you to be explicit, and also as a point of clarity for parents, who might wish to push the blame to the teacher. It is a simple question, to use as the discussion point with parents. It can also be a positive as students will be able to identify what they may need to do, should this problem arise again.
