What is TfEL (Teaching for Effective Learning)?

(link to Learning to Learn: South Australian Teaching for Effective Learning)

The teaching for Effective Learning elements I aim to explore with this blog are:

  •  2.1 develop democratic relationships
  •  2.2 build a community of learners
  •  3.1 teach students how to learn
  •  3.2 foster deep understanding and skilful action
  •  3.3 explore the construction of knowledge
  •  3.4 promote dialogue as a means of learning
  •  4.1 build on learners’ understandings
  •  4.2 connect learning to students’ lives and aspirations
  •  4.4 communicate learning in multiple modes
This blog relates to the use of ICT in the AITSL Standards (Australian Institute for Teaching and School Leadership | Australian Professional Standards for Teachers) by:
  •  2.6 Information and Communication Technology (ICT) – Use effective teaching strategies to integrate ICT into learning and teaching programs to make selected content relevant and meaningful. 
  •  3.4 Select and use resources – Select and/or create and use a range of resources, including ICT, to engage students in their learning.
  •  4.5 Use ICT safely, responsibly and ethically – Incorporate strategies to promote the safe, responsible and ethical use of ICT in learning and teaching.
  •  7.2 Comply with legislative, administrative and organisational requirements – Understand the implications of and comply with relevant legislative, administrative, organisational and professional requirements, policies and processes. 
  •  7.4 Engage with professional teaching networks and broader communities – Participate in professional and community networks and forums to broaden knowledge and improve practice. 
The ICT capability learning continuum being explored as part of this Personal Development are:
  •  Applying social and ethical protocols and practices when using ICT

  •  Managing and operating ICT
