  • 10 Mindframes for Visible Learning

ISBN: 9781138635524

The original Visible Learning research concluded that one of the most important influencers of student achievement is how teachers think about learning and their own role. In Ten Mindframes for Visible Learning, John Hattie and Klaus Zierer define the ten behaviours or mindframes that teachers need to adopt in order to maximise student success. These include:

  • thinking of and evaluating your impact on students’ learning
  • the importance of assessment and feedback for teachers
  • working collaboratively and the sense of community
  • the notion that learning needs to be challenging
  • engaging in dialogue and the correct balance between talking and listening
  • conveying the success criteria to learners
  • building positive relationships

These powerful mindframes, which should underpin every action in schools, are founded on the principle that teachers are evaluators, change agents, learning experts, and seekers of feedback who are constantly engaged with dialogue and challenge.

This practical guide, which includes questionnaires, scenarios, checklists, and exercises, will show any school exactly how to implement Hattie’s mindframes to maximise success.

Preface. How we think about the impact of what we do is more important than what we do

  1. I am an evaluator of my impact on student learning
  2. I see assessment as informing my impact and next steps
  3. I collaborate with my peers and my students about my conceptions of progress and my impact
  4. I am a change agent and believe all students can improve
  5. I strive for challenge and not merely ‘doing your best’
  6. I give and help students understand feedback and I interpret and act on feedback given to me
  7. I engage as much in dialogue as monologue
  8. I explicitly inform students what successful impact looks like from the outset
  9. I build relationships and trust so that learning can occur in a place where it is safe to make mistakes and learn from others
  10. I focus on the learning and the language of learning
  11. Visible Learning: a vision
