A question inspectors often ask leaders is ‘How do you know the impact of your strategy?’ The new Ofsted handbook is going to use the same demands for rational thinking from teachers and their pedagogic choices, and the ‘How it helps’ panel is designed to aid you in giving solid answers.
To access this information, open the panel using the ‘How it helps’ button, just above the HOW2 viewing area.
In addition to the teaching technique itself, each HOW2 provides a list of learning statements which helps you see the underlying reasons for the technique and provide inspectors with your reasoning.
This section of the panel provides you with examples of opportunities to use technology in the classroom with the current HOW2.
Notes on HOW2s allow you to share comments and questions with your colleagues -- great for both quick and long-term collaboration and support. They also provide you with a way to privately record your own thoughts and progress.View next
