Online Learning Planner Module 2 Action Task.pdf


My experience last semester was that connecting with students was the most challenging. That might be even more so with this new school year, given that I won’t know very many of the students already, and they won’t know me. The challenge will be to make those connections early. Zoom and Loom are OK, but I’ll need to develop my use of those.
Maximising the use of the Instructional Partner will be key. I’ll need to communicate clearly with her, and make sure we’re both on the same page when it comes to running tasks in class.

Goal: Challenge

Strand: Challenge

“I insist upon real understanding, not just memorization, and I will not let you give up, even when the work becomes difficult.”

I set challenges that are at the appropriate level for each student’s growth.
I scaffold my instruction to support students in rising to the challenges facing them.
I engage students in thinking deeply about key ideas.
I am able to ask probing questions when students respond superficially or incompletely.
I model the persistence and rigor that I expect from students.
I respond appropriately/encouragingly when students express doubts about their own abilities or begin to give up.
I am able to recognize and provide positive reinforcement for students who succeed beyond their expectations.



Welcome to your Professional Learning Blog! This is a place for you to post your goals, and reflect on them throughout the year.

  • Decide on your goal, perhaps in consultation with your colleagues or principal, and create a post to share with this online professional learning community that you are now a part of! Categorise this post in Goal Setting. Set your goal by considering:
    • Self assessment and reflection based on new teacher standards  (Tripod 7C’s)
    • Previous or new observation data from peers and principals
    • Student surveys (online surveys developed and aligned with 7C’s)
  • Identify colleagues, coaches, principals etc. that will play a supporting role in achieving your goal, and invite them to view and comment on your post. Encourage them to bookmark your blog and visit regularly.
  • Throughout the year, collect and share evidence to support your progress. Categorise these posts in Reflection.
  • Encourage your colleagues to share your learning journey by engaging with your blog. In return, engage with their blog (and others across the School)
  • You may also like to share work that your students have created or your own professional achievements that may not be directly related to your goal setting. This is encouraged! Categorise these posts as Showcase.
