How BlueSky Supports Australian Schools

21 July 2015

Model Farms High School in New South Wales has been using BlueSky for just over a year. Their main focus is to link their school planning strategy with individual staff development, as defined by the New South Wales Performance and Development Framework.

In this month's Education Review article, Principal Christina Bennet outlines the link between teacher development and student outcomes.

From the article

"I try to help students be the best they can be by providing the best teachers. The way I influence is to provide and engage in the professional development of staff. I wanted staff to acknowledge that the learning needs of students were changing and that, 'If they don’t learn the way I teach, then I need to teach the way they learn!'"

A tool that facilitates the professional learning culture at Model Farms is the BlueSky Education framework. It enables teachers to develop a personalised learning plan by identifying annual goals through an electronic portfolio.
