Current and immediate past research projects
Implementation of the HPC model in various primary and secondary schools in NSW (2015-6), the ACT (2015) and Victoria (2016)
In Term 3 2016 I conducted research in 5 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 will be available soon.
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 further research on HPC with a group of mainstream teachers in two secondary schools in NSW; findings of the two latter studies are awaiting review in peer-reviewed journals.
