For education Problem statement: 3 fundamental questions What are we really trying to achieve? Why do we talk about smart learning? Why do we want to introduce technology in a student s life? Fun? 3D Content? Gadgets?? Hi-Tech Classroom? New Skills? 1 Efficacy at Pearson What is efficacy? Put simply It s all about measurably improving learner outcomes The real questions we should ask ourselves... How do we know the student is progressing? How do we know why the student is not learning, what are the causes? How do we produce the desired or intended result? What is required : A coherent curriculum across all years A teaching body that is properly trained A clear definition of outcomes A clear definition of KPI s relative to those outcomes Means to measure the KPI s in real time ( as frequently as possible ) Governance frameworks Systems and resources that are both adaptive and granular to support personalized lesson plans How does Technology fit in the bigger picture... What is required : A coherent curriculum across all years A teaching body that is properly trained A clear definition of outcomes A clear definition of KPI s relative to those outcomes Means to measure the KPI s in real time ( as frequent as possible ) Governance frameworks Systems and resources that are both adaptive and granular to support personalized lesson plans But also, technology provides : Easier access to content More engagement Adaptive learning objectives for each student in the classroom and early remediation Large amount of data that can be used to track and analyse Allow for Emporium models / flipped classroom models Ubiquitous and intemporal studying Anytime - anywhere Follows the social trends of change in human behavior So is technology the solution to all the problems? Delivery methodology Infrastructure and Systems Challenges Student / Teacher readiness Blended learning how much? Technology is not the magic wand Cannot transform the class without transforming the program Objectives are learning centric not teaching centric What is required : A coherent curriculum across all years A teaching body that is properly trained A clear definition of outcomes A clear definition of KPI s relative to those outcomes Means to measure the KPI s in real time ( as frequently as possible ) Governance frameworks Systems and resources that are both adaptive and granular to support personalized lesson plans Faculty and staff need holistic professional development programs Leadership change in the schools It s a transformative journey that needs to consider all aspects of learning The digital transformation maturity curve Challenges: Adoption of change and Technology limited by behavior - Rate of adoption is dictated by human behaviour - The overall programme needs to cater for such natural human behaviour - There is only so much change and technology that a large group can adopt It takes time! Each institution will have several of these cycles that they will have to go through Challenges: The role of the faculty and professional development Redefining the role of the teacher Transforming teachers knowledge, skill and confidence Focus on improving teaching and learning rather on technology usage Ensuring leadership support and facilitate The approach Full needs analysis Design of standard and/or customized learning programs, created by experienced authors and developers and drawing upon a host of mediums, technology and forms of content Delivering a full experience to teachers, rather than simply a course Regular and structured measurement to ensure delivery of intended outcomes Diagnostic evaluations Curriculum design Certified trainers to deliver programs, including options to train the trainer, enabling customers to later deliver content themselves Program evaluation, ongoing analysis and support Support faculty and teachers throughout the journey Challenges: The Teacher development program From lecturer to coach, the teacher will generate classroom discussions guiding delivery of content. Data-driven instruction, the teacher will personalize instruction based on student trends and performance Learner-centered teaching, through innovating models of team based and peer 2 peer learning. TRANSFORMATIVE THINKING TRANSFORMATIVE TOOLS STRATEGY INSPIRATION DIFFERENTIATION TRANSFORMATIVE INSTRUCTION Challenges : To Introduce real time measurability Systems and tools that allow for constant data collection Train the leadership on how to interpret and act on a new set of data Understanding what success looks like. Transparency and feedback will benefit the learner on the long run A cultural change to become data driven Support teachers to take decisions real-time to improve learning Preparatory Year in a KSA University Regular and structured measurement of our products and services is designed to ensure they deliver on their intended outcomes. Preparatory Year in a KSA University The program will tailor digital contant to the needs of the core Academic skills of Reading, Writing, Math and Career Skills and the Technical programs theoratical modules. Present Teacher presents interactive digital lessons bringing in multimedia vidoes, animations and interactive exercises to engage students Practice Students practice exercises in a team-based, peer 2 peer enviornment. Using classroom clickers, common misconceptions are identified, allowing the teacher to provide feedback and remediation in real-time. Assess On-going formative assessment allows the teacher to identify students who are atrisk of failing, leading to early intervention. Preparatory Year in a KSA University SMART learning program in collaboration with MBSRLP The Program began in 2014, was designed to build a team of change leaders who will advocate for positive ICT integration in the Emirates schools. Pearson has been working with the Mohammad Bin Rashid Smart Learning Program (MBRSLP) to deliver a pilot program that provides school leaders with the knowledge and tools needed to lead effective ICT integration in UAE schools. Key outcomes for principals undertaking the professional development program include: Develop a critical and strategic understanding of the role and value of ICT in education. Understand the role of technology in advancing student- centered teaching and learning. Establish effective monitoring and evaluation skills to drive and support the use of ICT. Coach and mentor others in the effective use of ICT Act as agents of change to promote the effective use of ICT across the school community. Become part of a growing cadre of leaders who jointly lead and improve the adoption and impact of technologies in schools. SMART learning program in collaboration with MBSRLP Helping learners together What you need to do We have documented our progress in the following publications Our latest publication On the Road... to Delivering Learner Outcomes (March 2015), describes the progress on our journey since the public launch in November 2013, with the intention being to share some early successes and lessons, as well as to get feedback from external stakeholders. In this edition, we are also sharing examples of people and organisations outside of Pearson, which have informed our own work through their respective efficacy journeys. Asking More: The Path to Efficacy, sets out the imperative for measuring and improving learning outcomes worldwide The Incomplete Guide to Delivering Learning Outcomes, shares in detail our initial approach to contributing to that goal as of November 2013 Regular and structured measurement of our products and services is designed to ensure they deliver on their intended outcomes.
