Innovation impacts every aspect of learning, teaching and environment.Tracking the progress in each of these aspects requires setting up goals and new ways of measurement. Measuring a range of practices will help to track the progress and support continuous innovation. During the Leadership Meeting, we will help you choose and order the priorities of your institution and determine ways you could measure progress in relation to your vision
With technology impacting all the three domains of learning, teaching, and environment, setting up a goal that is aligned to the vision, as well as a timeline to achieve it is of utmost importance.
New ways will be required to measure the impact of technology on teaching, learning, and the environment. Determining ways to capture these results are identified and documented.
Technology helps students gain 21st Century skills – Communication, Creativity, Collaboration, Critical Thinking, Literacy Skills, and Life Skills. Skills to be measured and the ways to measure them need to be identified.
Teachers initially participate in Professional learning to explore various approaches to redefine the teaching and learning experience. They enhance their digital skills, creativity in teaching, innovative pedagogical skills, and technological skills. Methods to measure these are discussed.
The environment impacts the teachers, students, and other staff. A reliable and secure environment inspires teachers and students to be innovative. Setting up goals about the things to measure and ways to measure are the prime areas of focus.
Progressing towards innovation is an exciting journey. Sharing this progress with Community members brings excitement and inspires others.
This phase of the Leadership meeting involves establishing ongoing opportunities to measure a range of practices that will help you track your school’s progress and support continuous innovation. Identifying the changes you want to see in all the three aspects of teaching-learning, and the environment, determining the ways to capture results, committing resources and time to perform the measurement, and planning means of sharing the progress are identified with the help of guiding questions. It would also help to identify the current stage of the institution’s measurement strategy- Define, Develop or Sustain.
“What to measure” and “How to measure them” are the prime areas of discussion in this phase of Leadership discussion. The inclusion of technology in the school will empower the students and teachers with various skills. Teamwork, Communication and creation skills, Personalisation of Learning, Critical Thinking, Real – World Engagement, College and Career Readiness, Coding skills, Mind and Body Wellness, Global Citizenship, Entrepreneurship may be some of the parameters chosen for measurement.Ways of measurement may be through Focus Group, Class Observation, Global Readiness, Formative Assessments, Grade Data, Lesson Plan Review, Portfolios, Badges, and School Data. Documenting them would be the goal of this phase.
