John Hattie’s research in context

John Hattie’s research got a lot of attention from the media linked to the publication of his Visible Learning meta-study. The problem was that many individual aspects of his research were taken and used as a kind of checklist that could magically improve schools. It won’t work like that. John Hattie’s TED talk “Why are so many of our teachers and schools so successful” can be a good starting point to putting it all in context.
