What Works? Conference
IKIP Conference July 1-4, Potsdam
The Future Learning research exchange aims to influence policy and practice in educational innovation.
Resources from the old MirandaNet site.
A worldwide network of teachers and university teacher educators is experimenting with publishing information about effective teaching in a new form to support teachers (in training or experienced) in accessing quality assured research-based knowledge throughout their career. The resources, called MESH Guides, provide access to research to underpin professional judgement but are written in a way that easily translates research into practice.
The MESH Spelling Guide is now live, and teachers and students are invited to investigate and evaluate the resource and thus help the developers to refine and improve it.
MirandaNet Fellows held a MESH event at BETT14 on 23rd January led by Professor Marilyn Leask, editor in chief of MESH guides (www.meshguides.org) and Sarah Younie, chief editor of MESH ICT. MESH is the Education Futures Collaboration Mapping Educational Specialist knowHow initiative. Marilyn is campaigning to support professional judgement with evidence just as doctors do by publishing their evidence globally. MirandaNet Fellows are embarking on a series of MESH pathways to add to the existing pathways of knowledge that make up a quality assured 'wikipedia' of professional knowledge for teaching. By attracting this kind of collaboration from educators MESH provides scalable and cost effective technology to enable educators to engage in research collaborations and publications around topics they consider will make a difference to student's learning.
This MESH event was held in partnership with British Education Suppliers Association (BESA) whose companies are looking at HandsOn as a potential tool for teacher training in their ICT products in the future.
