Teaching assistants are an integral part of classroom life, yet pioneering research by the authors has shown schools are not making the most of this valued resource. Evidence shows the more support pupils receive from TAs, the less academic progress they made. Yet the reason for this has little to do with TAs. It is decisions made about them by school leaders and teachers that best explain this provocative finding. The fully updated second edition of this book draws on the experiences of schools that have put this guidance into action via the Maximising the Impact of Teaching Assistants programme. Revised to reflect the latest research evidence and changes within education, including the 2014 SEND Code of Practice, this book will help school leaders and teachers in primary and secondary settings to rethink the role, purpose and contribution of TAs, and add real value to what can be achieved in classrooms. Setting out a field-tested process, structured around a coherent and empirically sound conceptual framework, this book: helps school leaders review, reform and reenergise their TA workforce provides practical strategies to implement in the classroom illustrates key points with new case studies provides photocopiable templates and resources to support decision-making and action. Maximising the Impact of Teaching Assistants provides much-needed and evidence-informed guidance on how to unleash the huge potential of TAs, and is essential reading for all school leaders.

Wissenschaftlicher Aufsatz aus dem Jahr 2008 im Fachbereich Pädagogik - Medienpädagogik, Note: 1,7, Technische Universität Chemnitz (Pädagogik des E-Learning und der Neuen Meidien), Veranstaltung: Instruktionspsychologische Aspekte des E-Learning, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: In vielen Situationen des Alltags sowie des Arbeitslebens müssen Menschen mit verschiedensten Medien interagieren, um für sie relevante Informationen erhalten und somit ihre jeweiligen Ziele erreichen zu können. Dabei kann es vor allem in Situationen, in welchen die Aneignung von neuem Wissen notwendig ist, hilfreich sein, wenn dabei die durch das verwendete Medium vermittelten Inhalte an die kognitive Architektur und damit an die mentalen Ressourcen des Lernenden angepasst werden. Die Betrachtung verschiedener Anwendungsbereiche zeigt, dass die Berücksichtigung der vorhandenen kognitiven Ressourcen vor allem bei der Entwicklung von multimedialen Lernumgebungen, nicht nur hilfreich, sondern von enormer Bedeutung für die Wissensvermittlung ist. Aufgrund dieser Bedeutung für die Optimierung von Lernprozessen gab und gibt es nach wie vor starke Bestrebungen, Mittel und Wege zu finden, um die kognitive Belastung während des Lernens zuverlässig und präzise vorhersagen zu können.

Vor dem Hintergrund unserer gesellschaftlichen Situation, die gekennzeichnet ist durch Globalisierung, Beschleunigung und Unsicherheiten, ist jeder mehr denn je auf sich selbst zurückgeworfen. Es gibt kaum noch institutionellen Rückhalt, weil es dem Zeitgeist entsprechend ist, alle normativen Setzungen zu zersetzen. Gegen die Unsicherheit setzen die Autoren normative Eckpfeiler: Autorität, Verantwortung, Grenzen. Sie sind davon überzeugt, ohne solche Eckpfeiler kann keine Erziehung gelingen. Sie halten es zudem für notwendig, dass jeder in den unterschiedlichen Feldern der Erziehung Tätige, ob Eltern, Pädagogen, Psychologen, sich jedes Schrittes in der Erziehung bewusst ist. Das Buch gibt bewusst keine Erziehungsratschläge, sondern will durch eine Kombination aus Theorie und Praxis anregen, eine eigene bewusste Haltung zu Erziehungsfragen zu finden und umzusetzen.
