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 exitement 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.
