Following the self-assessment, my initial observation is that surprisingly, ‘captivate’ has come out as an area in need of development. Looking at the wording of the self-assessment questions, I realised that my result could be because of a shortcoming in my use of technology in the classroom. I come from schools which have had terrible ICT infrastructure, so this is definitely an area I wish to develop.
Moving forward, my personal goal is as follows:
To improve my awareness of differing needs, with a particular focus on EAL learners, and to develop strategies to support them in and out of the class. I will use the ‘confer’ framework guidance as a way of regularly gathering feedback in order to review my practices and plan for future development.
