Current and immediate past research projects
Implementation of the HPC framework continues in various primary and secondary schools in NSW (2015-7), the ACT (2015-16) and Victoria (2016-17).
In Term 3 2016 I conducted research in five NSW primary schools with 16 teachers and 40 students; the study was designed to build Stage 3 teachers capacity and confidence in STEM using the High Possibility Classrooms framework. Findings from this study are now available.
In 2015 I completed three major projects on Inquiry-based learning using HPC in Kindergarten: HSIE and Science and another study in a secondary school titled Students as Knowledge Creators and a further HPC study with a group of mainstream teachers in two secondary schools in NSW. Findings from this study are now available.
