Ewan McIntosh – The Importance of Feedforward as well as feedback

Ewan McIntosh suggested that feedback is extremely important to provide a guide for people to know how they are going, but even more important is the future focussed feedforward, as in what is required for future improvement goals. We saw some great examples of primary school students making suggestions about what they needed to do to improve their learning. I think this is a really important concept.

I think this has implications for PDP processes, as well as helping our students to become more aware of their position in their learning.
