Australian International School Malaysia was recognised as the First Certified Visible Learning School in the World in a launch ceremony recently, with Guest of Honour Diana Chan, MasterChef Australia Winner 2017. Guests were treated to a grand ceremony attended by parents, staff, and business organisations, who were treated to a canapé-styled networking session and student performances. The highlight was a live cook-out with Diana and Year 11 student Annabelle Bateman.
Visible Learning is an evidence-based approach to teaching and learning researched and developed by Professor John Hattie of the University of Melbourne. It was only recently that Visible Learning School Awards were being awarded, and because of the commitment of AISM teachers and leaders towards Visible Learning practices that AISM have become the first school worldwide to revive such an accolade.
Guests were also taken on a Visible Learning classroom tour where they saw students being taught with clear learning intentions and success criteria. “Our students are creating, editing, and re-setting learning goals throughout the year, and they are all taking more independence and responsibility for their own learning,” adds AISM Principal, Dr Deborah Priest.
As a Visible Learning School, AISM students and teachers share a common language of learning. As a result, their students are adaptable and effective communicators, collaborators, and creative thinkers.
