Video: John Hattie’s keynote at the Whole Education Annual Conference

In this video John Hattie makes a point that reading, writing, maths scores are not a criteria of a good school. The excitement of learning and the process of learning are as critical as the outcomes. How do you make schools inviting places for learning? 

John Hattie wants teachers to focus on what goes on in the classroom, and try to retain students’ interest in their love of learning. His overall message for teachers is: Know your impact. In order to do that the data itself is not the most important thing. It is better to think about the story underlying the data. Watch John Hattie’s engaging talk about passion, challenge, excellence and the social aspects of learning.

    I appreciate your emphasis on the “whole” child. I agree making schools inviting places for students to learn is key to support all students, all needs, all the time to realize their potential. I enjoy your studies very much. As an educator who has been schooled in the US and the UK … I am currently happy in doctoral work about what brings meaning to our work. Thank you.

    On the page there is a typographical error spelling “exitement” instead of “excitement.”

    In this video John Hattie makes a point that reading, writing, maths scores are not a criteria of a good school. The exitement of learning and the process of learning are as critical as the outcomes. How do you make schools inviting places for learning?

  4. This is an exciting and inspiring talk. I like the emphasis on : what makes school an inviting place for kids? The discussion about school systems in many countries makes me ponder what we do well here . I worry too that we’re not challenging kids enough. I see too many lessons all on the surface; notes being copied; trivial bits of information being retailed. And kids who are trained to be compliant, boys’natural energy too often contained and girls’ ambitions squashed. How we move beyond that to real learning is the challenge.
    I love the emphasis on learning from mistakes. It’s how we learn a lot in our lives. And finally, it’s nice to hear a dad talk so proudly of his sons
