IMPACT Innovators

Build capability

Aspiring Thinkers builds capability in line with the Department of Education’s School Improvement Model. Mentoring services will follow the initial two-day workshop to ensure that participants engage in inquiry and apply the Standards of Evidence. Ongoing collaboration will ensure that teachers translate what they have learned into effective classroom practices.

Meet 21st century needs

The major finding of this report is that the IMPACT framework is a dynamic, valid and transferable instrument that contributes to effective online teaching and learning internationally... It can and should be adapted to mainstream schooling.
