Classroom practice: Your teaching ecosystem...

When dealing with teachers’ practice, do you know what you are looking at? The Ecosystem approach has been created as part of an on-going research project. Fiona Aubrey-Smith explains

As part of my current research I have been talking to a range of headteachers about digital technologies. Most heads, in most schools, have a few teachers who are enthusiastic users of technology and a majority who will use what they are asked to use.

Quite often, headteachers have seen improvements in teaching and learning through specific uses of technology and are keen to build on these successes and roll-out those successful projects across the school. But, as we all know, translating pockets of success into school-wide success is a much trickier hurdle to leap. The challenges are not specific to technology, and the answer is about understanding why different teachers view things differently.
