Engaging In the 10 Mindframes Needed for Learning
We all teach, lead and learn under different Mindframes. They envelop our personal lives as well as into our professional conversations. John Hattie has researched and written extensively about the Mindframes our students need for learning. Those Mindframes are equally as important for teachers and school leaders as well. In his keynote, Corwin author, consultant and Visible Learning trainer Peter DeWitt will engage participants in discussions around each Mindframe which will help lead to everyone’s deeper learning.
Peter DeWitt (Ed.D.) is a former school principal in Upstate, NY, and he is now a Visible Learning trainer. Before becoming a principal he taught elementary school for eleven years. His syndicated blog Finding Common Ground is published by Education Week and he is a freelance writer for Vanguard Magazine.
Peter has presented Visible Learning in New Zealand, Australia and all over North America, as well as accompanied John Hattie and Deb Masters in London, Denmark and Sweden for meetings with international leaders and researchers, and will be presenting on instructional leadership and student voice at the Visible Learning World Conference in London in 2016.
