KC's the key...

Once again during this work I was reminded about the huge importance of the Key Competencies!  For us to have classrooms that have high cognitive engagement we must ensure we have high behavioural engagement. Being switched on to learning, requires switched on learners who are able to manage themselves.
I developed this self assessment  Rubric  for our learners to help them monitor themselves and clearly show what being a successful learner and digital citizen at PES meant. This included aspects of the KC's and was a progression of 3 levels which allowed the kids greater choice about where they worked, who they worked with and how frequently they might need to check in with the teacher outside of their micro-teaching times.
 I  then attempted to put it under the SOLO lens which has meant adding a couple of levels on the continuum ...a work in progress.
