Research tells us that feedback is one of the most powerful influences on student learning and achievement. This week the 3/4 students watched an inspirational video called Austin’s Butterfly. The video illustrates the power of peer feedback and demonstrates, very clearly, the impact that it can have on student achievement. After watching the video students highlighted 3 important elements which make up good quality feedback – useful, specific and kind. The 3/4s are now using these 3 elements to provide feedback to their peers on a range of aspects of their learning.
We encourage parents and family members to watch the video and welcome thoughts and insights.
