Since rolling this system out to other classes, I have compiled a set of resources that may be of assistance to other teachers wanting to begin using the My-Learning in their classes.
Refelction blog rubric. - I use this to help children write decent reflection blogs.
Kid’s diary -This is an example you can alter of the diaries the children use the plan out their weeks.
Teacher’s diary - This is my version of the diary with a bit of extra information (eg. group meetings, learning intentions etc.). I also display this for the class to see if they want. Again, feel free to alter this to suit your needs.
Task list - This is an example of a reasonably typical list of tasks the students in my class may be given.
Conferencing checklist - I use this to ensure I am conferencing with every child regularly. The ‘conferencing’ column is to check of that I have had an in-depth conversation with each child individually about their learning at least once per week. The ‘book’ column is used to check off that they have completed all assigned tasks for the week. The ‘blog’ column is for me to check each child has completed a satisfactory blog for the week and that I have posted feedback.
Writing Goals - These are used as individual learning intentions to help children improve their writing and understand where they are at and what their next learning steps are. Most goals are designed to assist with a wide variety of genres. This is on top of individual genre teaching. There are 3 levels, relating to level 2, 3 and 4 of the curriculum. I have used the asttle rubrics as a basis for the goals.
Guidelines for implementing My-learning - These will be used this year to assist teachers in implementing My-learning as well as to help me tailor P.D to the needs of our teachers.
Skills for My-Learning - I developed these to help teachers focus their teaching of skills children must have in order for My-learning to be successful. It’s not an exhaustive list but should (hopefully) help in getting children ready for the demands of a system that involves a whole different way of learning to what they are used to.
