NEXT-TELL - Next Generation Teaching, Education and Learning for Life
NEXT-TELL, an EC funded project, aims to provide an innovation platform, used by teachers, to continuously and collaboratively innovate ICT-enhanced formative classroom assessment. To achieve this, NEXT-TELL provides method and tool support on three levels: 1. For the teacher (and for students) in the class, and for homework, to help with pedagogical decision making (feedback, instructional planning); 2. For groups of teachers conducting inquiries into students' learning with the aim to improve pedagogy and use of ICT in their teaching; 3. For principals and head teachers to strategically align ICT with pedagogical goals of their school. The Institute of Education is involved in the 2nd strand of work that supports teachers conduct inquiry into their student learning. Teachers are supported through a TISL (Teacher Inquiry Into Student Learning) method and tool. TISL aims to support teachers in conducting research inquiries in their classrooms, with a particular emphasis on the use of technology in formative assessment. Methods Working within the area of secondary school STEM, TISL is supporting teachers to use technology for the purposes of formative assessment. It provides a method that facilitates evaluation of and innovation in e-assessment processes. The method supports teachers formulate a research focus, plan, collect and analyse data, and evaluate findings to develop future practice. The TISL method supports inquiries in various settings, including both individual and collaborative inquiry, and ranging from changes in practice for individual teachers, to group of teachers, to school-wide changes. For example, one school evaluated the impact of their new STEM project structure on student learning. Teachers introduced the use of audio assessment, with students encouraged to reflect on their class activities and become more autonomous in their learning. The inquiry led to the development of adaptive pedagogical practice for future STEM projects. TISL also facilitates the sharing of ideas and findings to support innovation within, and between, schools. A central aspect of this work is developing representations of the outcomes and processes of teacher inquiry to share within groups of teachers. The aim is to develop models for sustained teacher inquiry within schools.102455, £371,556, European Commission
