Children taught themselves: To browse the Internet & use applications; To read & type in English; To speak English with a different accent; To answer ‘big’ questions.
What else can children teach themselves? What can be achieved with MIE?
MIE is a form of learning in which children operate in unsupervised environments Can MIE be applied to Teacher CPD?
Al Issa and Al Bulushi note that many English Language Teaching, (ELT), CPD projects in Oman have ‘failed to meet the teachers’ needs, lacked new content and hardly paid any attention to the teachers’ daily problems’, (English language teaching reform in Sultanate of Oman: The case of theory and practice disparity. (2011).
Where we are Where we should be (Adapted by the UK DfES (2004) from Hopkins, Harris, Singleton and Watts (2000) Creating the conditions for teaching and learning. Published in ‘Pedagogy and Practice: Teaching and Learning in Secondary Schools. Leadership Guide’ DfES 2004)
SOLE-CPD (MITE) What might be achieved with SOLE-CPD?
Communities of Practice An identity defined by a shared domain of interest. Members engage in joint activities and discussions, help each other, and share information. Develop a shared repertoire of resources, experiences, stories, tools & ways of addressing recurring problems. Jean Lave & Etienne Wenger

1. MITE – needs a significant amount of ‘i’, (intervention); 2. Should we structure the process for teachers? 3. Teacher SOLEs need to have more than Mitra’s 8 - 12 week lifespan; 4. Teacher CoPs are developing strengths within the schools; 5. Teachers are becoming more informed about their CPD needs; 6. More ‘big’ questions about education are generated; 7. More research is required…….
