When we work Towards Accreditation, we Start with the Standards
With a process that involved paperwork and lots of box-ticking, (boxes with standards next to them of course!) I can completely understand why this might be the way you see things. When we do so, we feel like we have to learn an entirely new language. The language of the standards. It gets overwhelming pretty quickly.
That’s why at Edufolios we do things the other way around. Start with your stories. Tell us (or rather the system) what you’ve been doing in your classrooms, in your uni lectures, at your staff meetings, at PD (anywhere where you’re developing and using your professional skillset) and THEN look at what the standards can tall you about your practice.
So, it’s probably not too much of a surprise that I received a question from a new Edufolios member wanting to know how they could be sure that they were using our standards guide right. That they were selecting the correct focus areas for their evidence.
Here's how to flip the process. How you know which standards you're talking about.
In this podcast, we explore why it is that we choose to see accreditation as a box-ticking exercise. What compels us to go standards first?
We also explore the tools and resources (see the further reading section below) that will move you from that overwhelm and confusion and into some clarity and purposeful reflection.
We also reveal a few up and coming changes to the Edufolios platform that users can expect to see in the coming weeks. Exciting times my friends! 😉
