« of 4 »

On November 11 the case-session “School lesson in the focus of attention” was held within the framework of the XII International Research-to-Practice Conference “Family, School and Community: Thinking and Acting for a Child”.

More than 1000 participants were involved in the work of the session. Hiroyuki Kuno, professor, international expert, one of the founders of the World Association for Lesson Studies (WALS, Japan), was the key speaker.

During the case-session, the speaker provided expert feedback on the participants’ findings during the hands-on activities. Teachers actively interacted in 10 session rooms. Conducting a focused observation of lesson’s fragments and discussing them together allowed to see what skills are necessary for high-quality observation of a lesson, how to construct a reflective analysis, and what methods of interpreting the results are effective.

The results of the research conducted by the Center of Excellence as part of the implementation of the Lesson Study approach in the schools of Kazakhstan were presented. The conclusions and recommendations were announced, and the factors contributing to the changes in teachers’ practice were outlined as well.

« of 3 »

On the 10th of December 2021, regional conference “Lesson Study and functional literacy: opportunities, cooperation and perspectives” was held.

More than 280 educators from North-Kazakhstan region [participated in it.

The topic of the conference was not chosen accidentally. In 2022 Kazakhstan took part in PISA research therefor many teachers were concerned by the issue how to develop students’ functional literacy. That was the reason why the research projects of many schools were focusing on that problem.

During the conference not only the teachers of North-Kazakhstan region too part. During the plenary sessions the reports from colleagues from Pavlodar, Ust-Kamenogorsk, Aktobe and many others were presented. For instance, senior manager Rakhmail E. presented the materials of the symposium “Lesson Study Kazakhstan- status quo and perspectives”, which was held for world conference WALS. Senior manager Marchenko E. shared the results of the team research: “The role of facilitator in the process of Lesson study”. Also Shakyrova  Z., the director of Yakorskaya secondary school shared her experience of organizing LS because this educational institution in particular is very effective in it.

There were four sections during the conference each of which was dedicated to one of the aspects of fictional literacy:

1 section:

The development of students’ mathematical literacy, lesson observation.

2 section:

  1. The development of students’ reading literacy, lesson observation.
  2. The usage of multipurpose algorithm for work with the text for students’ reading literacy development on the lessons of History and Russian Language

3 section:

The development of students’ scientific literacy, lesson observation.

4 section:

The development of students’ creative thinking, lesson observation.

As it follows from the names of the sections, an important element of LS was discussed – lesson observation. Different instruments of lesson observation were discussed as well as weaknesses and strengths of each.

In the feedback more than 88% of all the participants stated that this conference motivated them for their own research. Many of them agreed that their knowledge and skills in the process of lesson observation and also in the field of students’ functional literacy development.

 

By this we can state that the conference was of great success and achieved its goals.
