Learning & Technology

Learning at Karoo is supported by the use of a whole school Instructional Model. The model has been designed by our staff to allow for consistent and collaborative instruction across the school. By using an Instructional Model particularly in English and Mathematics we are supporting a shared language about teacher practice, enriching our skills and professional learning by reflecting, motivating and engaging teachers to consider how their practice can best support student learning.

All learning at Karoo is differentiated (differentiation occurs when the teacher plans a lesson and adjusts the content, the process used and the expected outcomes from the students. The process ensures that learners at different starting points can receive the instruction they need to grow, learn and succeed).

Learning is planned to ensure students’ individual needs, interests, and abilities are catered for. Teachers use regular, ongoing and consistent assessment practices to ensure students’ next planned learning is individual and strives to support continuous improvement.
