Monash Faculty of Education looks for a new way to teach maths

A study has looked at a new way of teaching mathematics in primary and secondary school classrooms, and its ability to enhance learning.

The study explored a unique way of delivering a lesson on fractions where teachers provide students with challenging maths tasks to work on by themselves or in a group, rather than being instructed on specific solutions.

The project found students preferred to work out solutions for themselves, and determine their own strategies for solving problems, rather than following instructions they have been given.

The approach could lead to changes to how teachers currently plan their teaching in mathematics, how textbooks are written and how students are assessed.

Nearly 5,000 primary and secondary students in state, independent and faith-based schools across Victoria, New South Wales and Tasmania took part in the study.

The focus of the new approach was a lesson on fractions, to encourage the problem-solving abilities of students.  Students were asked to develop two different solutions to a fractions question, before being shown what to do by the teacher.

Various strategies were then discussed as a class, before students complete a similar question afterwards. Prompts are given to students who experience difficulty and those who finish the task quickly, and additional similar tasks to consolidate the learning.

Lead researcher Professor Peter Sullivan from the Monash Faculty of Education said the study suggested that students learn mathematics best if they engage in building connections between mathematical ideas for themselves rather than being told how to by the teacher.

“Essentially the notion is for teachers to pose problems that the students do not yet know how to solve and to support them in coming to find a solution,” Professor Sullivan said.

“In this approach, learning will be more robust if students connect ideas together for themselves, and determine their own strategies for solving problems.”

Professor Sullivan said teachers were encouraged to communicate with students about the benefits of persisting.

“While it is possible for everyone to learn mathematics, it takes concentration and effort over an extended period of time to build the connections between topics, to understand the coherence of mathematical ideas, and to be able to transfer learning to practical contexts,” he said.

“To do this, students need to be encouraged to persist, which includes them concentrating, applying themselves, believing that they can succeed and making an effort to learn.”

When given a task to solve, the expectation is that the students do not ask the teacher for direction but seek to solve the task for themselves.

“Overcoming challenges also provides the strategies and experiences that can be useful in students’ later studies and lives. Challenge also contributes to brain development and growth,” he said.

The research “Encouraging Persistence, Maintaining Challenge” is funded by the Australian Research Council and is investigating the relationship between teacher expectations, student persistence and the learning of mathematics.

Monash University launches educational app

Monash University has launched MWorld, the world’s first comprehensive, university-produced educational app for children.

“We’ve tied the thrill of discovery and the joy of storytelling to amazing educational content. MWorld will fuel the love of learning and improve engagement with literacy for a generation of Australian children,” says  Monash University’s Justin Bokor, creator of MWorld.

A year in the making, the MWorld app takes the power and credibility of university-generated content to 8- to 12-year-olds—well known as a highly discerning audience.

MWorld uses stunning graphics and multimedia, lively narration and an engaging game system to make learning irresistible. MWorld is unique in the breadth and diversity of the material, covering the natural world, early civilisations, the modern world, art and music, and much more.

“Our goal at MWorld is ambitious. We want to help drive improvements in learning and literacy for 1 million Australian children and 500 million children worldwide over the next decade,” Mr Bokor said.

“Screen time is far too often used to dull the mind, but it has so much potential to educate and illuminate.”

MWorld has been designed and developed in consultation with teachers, parents, children and experts from Monash University and beyond. It is being launched together with a case study program for schools across Australia.

“We’re putting MWorld to the test in schools across the country so teachers can incorporate MWorld into their learning programs and drive engagement with learning and literacy,” Mr Bokor said.

“We’ve had declining standards of reading literacy for more than a decade now, according to OECD data, but we can turn this around. As JK Rowling has shown, write good content and kids will flock to it in droves.”

Quality content and storytelling is everything in MWorld. Topics include ‘Fangs – How Do Animals Eat?’, ‘Early Australians’, ‘Sleep and Dreams’, ‘How to Write a Song’ and many more. Each topic is authored by a well respected academic, then brought to life by a talented team of designers, film producers and young Australian narrators.

“MWorld showcases Australian innovation and creativity. People think you have to go to Silicon Valley to innovate, but we have some of the world’s finest talent right here in Australia. We’ve got superb universities, brilliant academics, world-class film producers and game designers, talented young actors and abundant entrepreneurial spirit. We aim to make MWorld a global brand that embodies the great strengths of Australian education, innovation and creativity,” Mr Bokor said.

The iPad version of MWorld is available now in Australia and internationally, with Android and web versions scheduled for release in 2015.

Monash Faculty of Education is opening the doors to inclusive education

Around the world, an estimated 650 million children are denied education because of their disabilities, but the obstacles to opening up these young lives are being eroded.

Changing attitudes to allow more children to learn is a passionate quest for Associate Professor Umesh Sharma, who coordinates a Special Education Program in the Monash Faculty of Education.

Study at the Monash Faculty of Education

His projects begin by examining why teachers in developing countries are apprehensive about working with students with disabilities; he has found that their views are often the result of deep-rooted cultural aversion to the disabled.

“It’s a complex, sensitive issue that requires a deep understanding of local culture,” Associate Professor Sharma said.

Another early part of the process for his projects, which he conducts in the Pacific, India, Bangladesh and China, is consultation with education policymakers.

“Working with individual teachers won’t, on its own, bring change,” Associate Professor Sharma said. “We must also work with policymakers, teacher trainers and parents.”

Associate Professor Sharma’s work falls within UNESCO’s global goal of “inclusive learning” and has been helped by developing nations signing international conventions such as the 2007 Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities and landmark legislation such as India’s The Persons with Disabilities Act (1995).

Although such policies intend to integrate disabled students into mainstream education, implementation has proved difficult, so Associate Professor Sharma’s team has also been working directly with schools, teachers and parents.

Substantial practical barriers to inclusive education remain, including extreme poverty, under-resourced and overcrowded classrooms, lack of disability access, and teacher attitudes.

But Associate Professor Sharma’s message about the benefits of an inclusive approach is backed by studies showing that students with disabilities who attend regular schools are more likely to achieve academically, live independently, earn a higher salary and be married, than those educated in segregated settings.

Read the full story of Associate Professor Umesh Sharma’s work in “Classrooms without borders” in the October issue of Monash magazine.

Monash Faculty of Education conference

Education in Australia currently faces big challenges, one of which is with equity of access to quality teaching and learning for all students.

These challenges were the focus on the Monash Faculty of Education biennial conference titled Equity and access in Australian Education, held Oct 31.

Monash University Faculty of Education

Study at the Monash University Faculty of Education

With an impressive and diverse line-up of speakers and panellists, the focus of this year’s conference was current challenges in enabling access to a quality education for all Australian students.

While overall the achievements of Australian students remain world class, there are clear disparities in achievements between different groups of students, and across disciplines. In addition, Australia’s performance has decreased, relative to other nations and regions, in areas of mathematics and science education.

Dean of the Monash Faculty of Education Professor John Loughran said it was important for all students in Australia to have access to quality education.

“Opportunity through education matters if we want to progress as a thinking society. Australia is well positioned to be at the forefront in education and now is the time to push ahead in ways that will make a difference for all,” Professor Loughran said.

Keynote speakers during the morning session are Treopia Washington from Bowie State University, Katrina Reynen from Optus, Ross Pilling from BASF Australia and New Zealand, and Monash University education experts, Dr Peter Anderson, Professor Neil Selwyn and Associate Professor Deb Corrigan.

The afternoon session featured a thought-provoking panel discussion. Panel members are Kathryn Greiner AO, co-author of the Gonski Report; Dr Kevin Donnelly; Fran Cosgrove from the Victorian Institute Of Teaching; Victorian president of the Australian Education Union Meredith Peace; and Leonie Walsh, the lead scientist for the Victorian government.

This key event brought together senior representatives from Victorian and national education sectors as well as principals and teachers from all Victorian schools.

About the Faculty of Education at Monash University

The Monash Faculty of Education has an outstanding reputation, both within Australia and internationally for its contribution to cutting-edge research and discussion on educational issues. They are committed to the very highest standards of research and research training and this is reflected in the high numbers of postgraduate and research students that choose to study education at Monash University.

The Monash Faculty of Education is known for

  • their diverse and innovative curriculum that responds to international, national and local community needs;
  • producing graduates who lead professional practice, public debate and policy, and community action around the world;
  • their innovative and flexible approach to collaboration with various communities and industry partners in the public and private sectors; and
  • their diverse range of relationships in support of their approach to professional education and well-regarded conceptual and practical research.

The Monash Faculty of Education is the result of an integration of three institutions that had separate existences until July 1991 when Monash University and the Chisholm Institute of Technology merged to form two schools: the School of Early Childhood and Primary Education at Frankston (previously the Chisholm Institute School of Education) and the School of Graduate Studies in Education at Clayton (the Faculty of Education, Monash University). In 1991 the Gippsland Institute of Advanced Education was affiliated with Monash and, in January 1993, the two institutions fully amalgamated. The Peninsula and Clayton campuses were joined by the School of Education at Gippsland.

Initially the faculty was organised into three schools, one on each campus, operating as separate academic and budgetary units. Following the 1994 review and the emphasis placed by the review panel on the importance of developing a whole-faculty sense of identity and approach to teaching and research development, in 1997 the faculty restructured into a single department with academic and professional staff working through a cross campus team-based structure.

The Monash Faculty of Education currently operates a unified single department structure across three Australian campuses: Berwick, Clayton and Peninsula. It is considered one faculty, not three campuses, and they are committed to capitalising on the collective education and research strength that comes from working collegially across campuses. This multi-campus structure provides opportunities to engage with local industries and communities, taking advantage of the geographic location. Strong links have been established with other faculties on each campus and with the local community to better engage with their regions. The faculty’s strong links with both the John Monash Science School at Clayton and the Nossal High School at Berwick are important elements of their ongoing engagement with the profession.

Monash Faculty of Education looks at class sizes

Small classes, especially in the first four years of school, can have an important and lasting impact on student achievement, a new report shows.

Monash University Faculty of Education

Study teaching at Monash University

In a review of over 100 papers from 1979–2014, education expert Dr David Zyngier from Monash University’s Faculty of Education looked at whether the conclusions reached on the effect of smaller class sizes still hold true today.

“The question of class size continues to attract the attention of educational policymakers and researchers alike,” Dr Zyngier said. “Many argue that much of Australia’s increased expenditure on education in the last thirty years has been ‘wasted’ on efforts to reduce class sizes because that extra funding has not led to improved academic results.”

However Dr Zyngier found that current policy advice is based on ‘cherry picking’ of flawed research evidence from a US conservative think tank and that a range of independent studies throws doubt on that argument.

His review drew on a wide range of studies from Australia and other similar education systems including non-English speaking countries of Europe, as well as England, Canada and New Zealand. All assessed how class size affected academic results. Dr Zyngier also looked at whether other variables such as teaching methods were taken into account in the results.

The findings suggest that smaller class sizes in the first four years of school can have a significant and lasting impact on student achievement. This appears to be especially important for children from communities that are culturally, linguistically or economically disenfranchised.

“Smaller classes in the early years can lift a child’s academic performance right through to Year 12 and even into tertiary study and employment,” Dr Zyngier said.

“It is also beneficial to have smaller numbers for specialist classes in such fields as numeracy and literacy.”

Dr Zyngier said the cost of keeping classes small had to be weighed against the long-term cost to the community of less-effective education.

There was also a need for a new approach to teacher development, he said.

“Currently teaching methodology is based on large classes, which call for a very different approach to teaching smaller groups,” Dr Zyngier said.

“Targeted funding for specific lessons and schools, combined with professional development of teachers, would address the inequality of schooling and help redress the damaging effect that poverty, violence, inadequate child care and other factors have on our children’s learning,” Dr Zyngier said.

Ontario College of Teachers outlines regulation amendments

Teaching is a regulated profession in Canada. Each province and territory in Canada has its own individual certification board. If you wish to teach in any one of these locations, you must apply to for certification though the specific provincial or territorial certification board. This stands for all students, whether they have completed their teacher education in Canada or abroad. Upon completion of a teacher education program, you are not automatically certified to teach in a certain province or territory. You first need to gain teacher certification through the province or territory you wish to work in.

Australian Teachers Colleges in Australia

Questions? Contact OzTREKK’s Admissions Officer Rachel Brady

If you wish to work as a teacher in the province of Ontario after completing a teacher education degree, you will need to apply for certification through the Ontario College of Teachers (OCT) before you can teach in Ontario. The OCT will then assess your teacher education degree to make sure your teaching qualifications meet their requirements.

Beginning on September 1, 2015, the initial teacher education program at Ontario’s faculties of education will expand to four semesters and include twice the amount of practice teaching time (80 days, up from 40) and greater attention to students’ mental health and well-being, how to teach with technology, and diversity among other core elements.

If a person applies for certification through the Ontario College of Teachers from September 1, 2015 onward, his or her credentials will be evaluated based on the enhanced teacher education program requirements in the province of Ontario. What this means is that anyone applying for teacher certification through the Ontario College of Teachers from September 1, 2015 onward must meet the requirements of the new, enhanced two-year teacher education program in the province of Ontario.

If you have any questions about certification with the OCT, please contact Australian Teachers Colleges Admissions Officer Rachel Brady at rachel@oztrekk.com.

About Australian Teachers Colleges

Are you thinking of becoming a teacher? Completing an Australian teacher education program provides an excellent opportunity to obtain the teaching qualifications you need, while experiencing the excitement and culture of living in a new country.

Australian teachers colleges name their graduate-entry education/teaching degrees in various ways (e.g., Graduate Diploma of Education, Postgraduate Diploma in Education, Master of Teaching). These are comparable to graduate-entry Bachelor of Education degrees offered at universities in Canada.

We at OzTREKK are proud to say that our Australian Teachers Colleges offer reputable teacher education programs, providing our students with a unique and enriching education, which allows for an easy transition into the teaching profession within Canada.
