  5. Adaptive Schools Foundation Seminar Learning Guide, Third Revised Edition

    For schools to effectively respond to the press for accountability and provide quality learning for all students, they must simultaneously address two perennial goals. One goal is the professional development of individual educators. The second is the development of the organisation’s capacity to learn and be adaptive. Both build the capacity for school improvement, without which reform efforts will fail. The Guide is based upon the previous five editions of the Adaptive Schools Syllabus, created by Robert Garmston and Bruce Wellman. The Learning Guide is grounded in the text, The Adaptive School: A Sourcebook for Developing Collaborative Groups, and cross-references to the Sourcebook are made throughout this Guide. Designed to support administrators, teachers, department and regional personnel and staff developers who convene and manage professional learning teams and leadership teams.

  6. The Learning Landscape: How to Increase Learner Agency and Become a Lifelong Learner

    In The Learning Landscape, James Anderson outlines a powerful metaphor for visualising learning. Mapping the abstract concept of learning onto a physical journey in the real world, the learning process is made tangible and accessible to learners. Students will be guided across the plains of the Learning Landscape, passing over the foundational knowledge that has come before them, while overcoming pits of challenging learning in an effort to climb to the peaks of expertise. Drawing on the work of Nicholas Nassim Taleb, Art Costa and Bena Kallick, Anders Ericsson, and Carol Dweck, The Learning Landscape provides teachers with a tool to develop learner agency, creating more effective learners, improving engagement and, ultimately, learning outcomes.

  9. Leading from the Library: Help Your School Community Thrive in the Digital Age

    In this book, a librarian and an education leader team up to reflect on the librarian’s ability to build connections in two ways. First, they discuss the benefits of bringing the outside world into the library through the use of social media, videoconferencing and other tools that allow librarians to partner with others. Then they expand upon these connections by addressing how librarians can lead in the greater educational community by sharing resources and strategies, and partnering with school leaders to tell the story of the school community. This book features connections to the Future Ready Librarians framework; planning templates, checklists and resources to guide change; questions for discussion and challenges to put what you’ve read into action; and examples from the field.
