Building teacher capacity

Gradual release model

In my eLearning role I regularly work with teachers to build their capacity in using ICTs meaningfully in their practise. I use a gradual release of responsibility model to empower teachers to take ownership of using technology. This generally looks like:

1) Modelling lessons and debriefing with the teacher afterwards

2) Shared teaching

3) The classroom teacher taking ownership and leading lessons with regular check ins.

eLearning enhancing all curriculum areas

Collaboratively planning with teachers to build their capacity to authentically embed technology to enhance learning in all areas

I have been fortunate enough to be able to attend planning sessions with teachers. We explored how ICT can enhance learning across all curriculum areas.

For example, Year 3 students used their knowledge of angles to draw 2D shapes using coding algorithms. Using a gradual release of responsibility model the teachers I worked with now feel confident in using this approach on their own.
