Podcast – Joanne McEachen

NPDLConnect Podcast series

In this Podcast Joanne McEachen analyzes how to create ways to understand and communicate what is important to measure, so every learner can engage, be empowered and experience success in school. Joanne reflects on how education international rankings have a pivotal role in defining the way we teach globally.

Why assessment can be a platform for change or a strong reason for status quo? Why is multiple choice over and how can assessment be a driver for change?

Joanne´s work champions education system change by making sense of what works and what doesn’t – interrogating paradigms and methodologies through the eyes of the learner.

Her experience spans all layers of the education system: as a teacher, principal, Superintendent, and whole system leader at the New Zealand Ministry of Education.

Currently she is the the Global New Measures Director for New Pedagogies for Deep Learning working around the world to transform learning by implementing major realignments in education. As CEO and Founder of The Learner First she fosters deep transformation in schools and systems, helping them shift from learning from standardized to personalized by putting the Learner First.
