Essential Teaching Techniques to Improve Student Performance and Well-Being

Exploring and Understanding the Optimal use of Technology to support Effective Student Learning

P3S5

Technology has transformed virtually every area of human activity, impacting the way we do things, the speed with which we do them, the sophistication of what we do, and the breadth of what we can do. Noticeably, however, technology has not had the same degree of penetration into classrooms. School-based technology is evident in the use of computing power, audio-visual presentations and mechanization of processes (for example, the use of the internet for information gathering and processing, computing power for animation, simulation and design, PowerPoint presentations and even the use of drone technology), however, in few places has technology fundamentally affected the teaching and learning process. There are very few technological paradigm shifts in learning in schools. The main reason for this is that there is less of an imperative for change in schools compared to industry and lifestyle, there is an absence of competition which seeks a market edge, and a commonly held concern or skepticism prevails among many teachers around the most fundamental principles of the role for technology in learning. As a result, opportunities for some transformative learning experiences are being lost. This session explores the most fundamental principles and guidelines that need to apply to the use of technology in the classroom. It analyses the essential difference between technology-leading instruction and principles of sound instruction dictating how technology should be applied to learning. The session is designed to equip teachers and school leaders with a solid understanding of how technology must conform to how we learn, while also potentially enhancing learning as a social activity, and much better matching the student’s learning experience to the content of what is being learned through technology solutions. In summary, the session focuses on prioritizing learning in the learning-technology mix while at the same time maximising the benefits of using technology in learning.

Peter is an internationally recognised and respected professional with over 40 years' experience in education. His practical knowledge and understanding of education began with 18 years in Victorian schools, where he taught a broad range of disciplines and held numerous school leadership roles. This direct involvement in schools at the commencement of his career has equipped Peter with a thorough knowledge and understanding of the dynamics of schools, teaching, learning and of students. Subsequently, Peter moved into education-based roles outside of the school setting, Peter has held a number of senior management roles in very significant programs and organizations internationally. These include: three positions as general manager; one as national manager; and four senior management roles. Peter has had overall management responsibility for the world's largest and most complex education assessment program - the Program for International Student Assessment or PISA. He has established national education programs in both Australia (NAPLAN) and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (NAP).

Peter has been intensely involved in the application of technology in education. He introduced, for example, the first large-scale on screen marking technology in Australia (Pearson's ePen) that went on to become the national standard for marking in the NAPLAN program - involving over 1 million students annually. He was also significantly involved in promoting the digital curriculum work of The Le@rning Federation at Education Services Australia that involved the generation of specialist digital content for schools, backed by $180m of state and commonwealth funding. Peter project directed the planning and development of the My School website in Australia commencing this work in 2009 and subsequently in 2013 the introduction of NAPLAN online assessment through its National Sample Assessment program. Peter also led for the first three years of its development, the NAPLAN online program. He has also been closely involved with the use of technology to support international programs including PISA.

Most recently, at the OECD, Peter has managed both the PISA and the PISA-based Test for Schools programs that have provided him with invaluable international experience. Peter's work at the OECD included leading the revitalization of the PISA 2018 assessment domain of Global Competence and exploring the dimensions and possibilities of what can be called the 'new metrics' - that attempt to evaluate performance of countries, schools and students in the 'non-traditional' domains of teaching and learning that are considered vital to students' ability to succeed in life and work in their post-school years.

Peter is very keen to further extend his experience, knowledge and skills through working collaboratively with colleagues internationally, in service of the educational advancement of students (especially those suffering disadvantage) and to support and lead the work of schools in evaluating and improving their performance. In 2018 Peter will be Global Project Director for the Balanced Scorecard for Schools (or BSFS) program in partnership with Marshall Cavendish Education, Singapore, as well as acting as an advisor to the Minister for Education in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
