Evidence for Learning works with organisations to map their improvement frameworks to The Teaching & Learning Toolkit.
Education Changemakers (EC) are an education organisation focused on unleashing teacher led innovation. As a Changemaker undertaking the Changemaker Journey, your change project will fit into one of the four impact buckets, which are mapped to the Teaching & Learning Toolkit to provide you with evidence before you get going.
Before you get too excited, it is important to understand that the Toolkit:
- Combines evidence from a range of different research studies into a single average for each area. There is no guarantee that this average will be the impact in your school. Looking at the range outlined in the Technical Appendix for each approach (e.g. Feedback) will give you a clearer idea of the potential impact at your school.
- Provides a measurement of academic outcomes (effect size translated into months' impact on learning) with all the benefits and limitations of that particular focus.
- Is an introduction to education research, a beginning point to start considering changes you would like to make.
Taking a deep dive into the materials within the What should I consider section and the Australasian Research Summaries for your approach/s will help you to identify what are the 'active ingredients' (e.g. changes to teaching and therefore changes in learning) that will help you have an impact.
