Teach to learn

Posted on: November 1, 2019

If there is just one thing I wish all teachers and educators internalised, it is this finding by John Hattie:

… the evidence is that the biggest effects on student learning occur when teachers become learners of their own teaching, and when students become their own teachers.

Hattie, J. (2009). Visible learning: A synthesis of over 800 meta-analyses relating to achievement. Routledge. London and New York.

This book was not available in a local library. I could only find a non-borrowable reference in a restricted library near me, but Google Books has this snippet.

Hattie quote source.

If we internalise this, it creates a shift in mindset and practice that separates schooling from education, and teachers from educators.
