DEED+ELLI+AI+CI = Systemic School Learning

Introduction We’re excited to report the unfolding story about how we are using the groundbreaking work of Tony Bryk‘s team on  Design, Educational Engineering and Development (DEED), as a methodology for systemic school change. This is combined with the University of Bristol’s Effective Lifelong Learning Inventory (ELLI), which forms part of a process of Authentic Inquiry (AI) for students, teachers and leaders. The insights from these prototypes are then shared via a novel website, from the Open University’s Knowledge Media Institute, for harnessing Collective Intelligence (CI), called the Evidence Hub. This is  an exciting convergence, since as you are about to see, the school piloting this reports that it has catalysed a profound shift in how they think about professional development.[…]

We’ve just got back from an intensely busy, creative and enjoyable week at LASI13, Stanford University, where Ruth Deakin Crick, Chris Goldspink, Rebecca Ferguson, Nelson Gonzalez and I (online!) contributed to the programme. Ruth and Rebecca were both blogging, so you can get their in-situ reflections, and I’m sure there’ll be more to follow as we unpack the many ideas. Following a successful Dispositional Learning Analytics workshop, on which we’ve had very positive feedback, awareness should grow of Learner Dispositions (or Mindset as Dweck calls it), Teacher Dispositions, the potential of a multi-level Complex Systems approach to educational system design, and from Nelson’s work at Declara, the emerging potential of applying machine learning techniques to such datasets. Ruth and Rebecca[…]
