Recently, I attended a Visible Learning Plus Foundation Day Institute that featured two tremendous speakers, Peter Dewitt and John Almarode. For several years, I have been studying the work of John Hattie and Visible Learning to truly understand what impacts student learning. It was an honor to dig down deep into the various effect sizes and strategies that speak to promoting the success of all students during this two day event. There is no doubt that I will continue to embed this important research into future experiences for our own staff and students.
Several years ago Peter Dewitt focused me on Hattie's work and for whatever reason it really resonated with my philosophy of education. So much so that I wrote a blog post for Corwin Connect in 2016 titled Visible Learning in the Digital World. Fast forward to the present, I became inspired again after attending the Foundation Day Institute that I created a matrix of sorts that marries Hattie's effect sizes with best practice web applications and technology. Look below to access this matrix and please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with recommendations of various "tools of the trade" that can be added in the future.
