" ... The development of the Literacy and Numeracy Progressions has been identified as an area for national action. The Education Council identified supporting STEM education opportunities in school systems as one of five areas for national action. This action included the extension of the national literacy and numeracy continuums to: "… better assist teachers to identify and address individual student needs according to the expected skills and growth in student learning at key progress points from the early years through high school, given the evidence of the spread of student achievement within any classroom. (Education Council 2015, National STEM School Education Strategy, p. 9) ... "
"In this episode of the ERRR we’re speaking to Dr Lorraine Hammond about her paper, Teachers Taking up Explicit Instruction: The Impact of a Professional Development and Directive Instructional Coaching Model. I was excited to interview Lorraine on this paper for two main reasons. The first is that it explores coaching, and not just any coaching, but coaching that clearly positions the coach as an expert other. This is in contrast to how coaching is often promoted, with the coach being more of a support, asking questions of teachers, and prompting the answers to come from them. In addition, Lorraine’s paper is about supporting the establishment of explicit instruction within schools to target literacy development. And she certainly has some inspiring stories of turning around literacy outcomes ... "

"Professor John Sweller’s research into inquiry-based approaches to learning needs our urgent attention. At the core of Sweller’s work is “cognitive load theory” – something world-renowned educator Dylan Wiliam says is the single most important thing for teachers to know. Sweller explains that Australia’s declining performance in international assessments such as the Program for International Student Assessment (PISA) coincides with an increased emphasis on inquiry or discovery learning, problem-based learning and “critical thinking” in Australian curricula ... "
"... over the decades, as our knowledge of
human cognitive architecture advanced, it has become increasingly clear that the advances did not favour inquiry learning. Furthermore, as data from randomised, controlled trials, as well as from correlational studies, began to appear, those data were equally problematic for an inquiry learning perspective. I’ll begin by outlining those aspects of human cognitive architecture relevant to instructional issues ... "
Sweller's Cognitive Load Theory in Action by Oliver Lovell
Publication Date: 2020-11-17
What is it that enables students to learn from some classroom activities, yet leaves them totally confused by others? Although we can't see directly into students' minds, we do have Cognitive Load Theory, and this is the next best thing. Built on the foundation of all learning, the human memory system, Cognitive Load Theory details the exact actions that teachers can take to maximise student outcomes. Written under the guidance, and thoroughly reviewed by the originator of CLT, John Sweller, this practical guide summarises over 30 years of research in this field into clear and easily understandable terms. This book features both a thorough discussion of the core principles of CLT and a wide array of classroom-ready strategies to apply it to art, music, history, chemistry, PE, mathematics, computer science, economics, biology, and more. 'I would like to recommend this book in the highest possible terms to all educators who wish to familiarise themselves with cognitive load theory' - Emeritus Professor John Sweller
