Visible Learning is based on extensive reasearch conducted by Professor John Hattie into what influences in education have the greatest impact on student learning. The teachers at Carramar Primary School are using the findings from this research to provide the guiding principles for curriculum delivery in the classroom.
Helping the students to understand what it means to be a learner has been a focus in 2016. A set of learner qualities has been developed to describe what an effective learner needs to do. These qualities are reflected in the language used by the teachers to discuss learning and give feedback to the students.
The ant has been a symbol used by the school since it began in 2005. It represents team work and endeavour. This symbol is used as a visual link to the learner qualities for the school community.
