3 Obligations

At SciCon and have have just been welcomed by Graeme Aitken (Dean of faculty of education Auckland uni).

He mentioned Grant Wiggins who had this to say about teachers’ obligations:

Teachers have 3 obligations

1) increase knowledge, learning, achievement (high expectations for each student, individualized expectations)

2) increase interest (why it matters, connects to students lives and their experiences)

3) increase confidence (don’t lower expectations, reduce the load, make the complex understandable – do less and do it better)

I have drawn a Carroll diagram of my understanding of the importance of having all 3 obligations mets.
