So today I heard John Hattie today going through his list of factors that make a difference (or don't) for students in our schools. A few sacred cows get a little trampled on in this process but here's what popped into my head as he (eloquently) spoke this morning.
His research is based on thousands of research studies conducted over the past fifteen years, so reflects what has been happening in schools. So essentially his research can only be used to change schools as we currently know them. I know that all research is based on past events but how do his findings ensure that we can cater for what education or at a more basic level, learning, will look like in a increasingly networked future?
