Productive Pedagogies & Discipline: the Challenge of Aligning Teaching and Behaviour Management The Productive Pedagogies construct has been particularly powerful and influential in defining what schools should be aiming to achieve in teaching and learning. Interestingly, the Productive Pedagogies has as much to say about behaviour management as to does about teaching. This paper explores (1) the direction given to teachers, through the Productive Pedagogies, about their role in the classroom and how they should approach the task of teaching and managing student behaviour and (2) the difficulties that many teachers are experiencing in aligning their approach to behaviour management with From EdNA Online on May 25, 2005 at 6:30 a.m..

Metacognition in Mathematical Problem Solving The main purpose of the study is to understand the role of metacognition in mathematical problem solving to generate a set of recommendations for classroom instruction. The three specific aims are, firstly, to observe patterns of behaviours when students solve mathematical problems, secondly, to observe the types of metacognitive behaviours during mathematical problem solving, and thirdly, to understand the role of metacognition during problem solving. The thinking aloud method was used to generate data from a group of Year 7 students. Data analysis using a previously developed taxonomy of pro From EdNA Online on May 25, 2005 at 6:30 a.m..

Reflecting on Professional Practice with a Cracked Mirror: Productive Pedagogy Experiences Part of the mandatory professional development agenda in a number of Queensland schools is reflection on teaching practice using the Productive Pedagogy framework. The introduction of this framework has generated substantive conversations among teachers concerning the development of the framework and what is and is not listed as productive pedagogies. This paper is presented in the context of practitioner investigation from the perspective of a critical friend working with groups of teachers in the implementation of the New Basics curriculum in Queensland. It reports on a professional developm From EdNA Online on May 25, 2005 at 5:30 a.m..


Semantic Interoperability of Metadata and Information in unLike Environments (SIMILE) SIMILE is a joint project conducted by the W3C, HP, MIT Libraries, and MIT CSAIL. SIMILE seeks to enhance inter-operability among digital assets, schemata, vocabularies, ontologies, metadata and services. A key challenge is that the collections which must inter-operate are often distributed across individual, community, and institutional stores. SIMILE will leverage and extend DSpace, enhancing its support for arbitrary schemata and metadata, primarily though the application of RDF and semantic web techniques.
