Visible Learning (John Hattie)
Visible Learning and Teaching: We are all familiar with the statements: “a picture is worth a thousand words,” and “seeing is believing.” So when it comes to finding the Bright Spots in Utah schools, we at the Utah Personnel Development Center (UPDC) are noticing some visible evidence of improved outcomes for students and teachers throughout the state. It’s exciting to learn from teachers who are making a difference. But merely learning from the bright spots isn’t enough, we need to share what works with others. In the book, Switch: How to Change Things When Change is Hard, the authors indicate that a bright spot is “a successful effort worth emulating.” So the quest must be to capture the visible evidence of successful teaching experiences and share the details with others.
