Topic 2 – Select SELFIE WBL Items

  • Review each SELFIE WBL area, identifying the aspects where the perspectives of school leaders, teachers, in-company trainers and learners converge or diverge. A set of review criteria can be used to this end; for example, compare the average score for a SELFIE WBL area with the number of respondents for each item in that area can help to get a clearer insight into the scores.
  • Compare results of linked or mutually dependent items: For example, results emerging from the Additional Areas such as “Teacher confidence in the use of technology” should be reviewed and related to results from the SELFIE WBL Area like “Continuing Professional Development – Part 1 and Part 2” and “Pedagogy: Implementation in the classroom”. Similarly, results related to “Continuing Professional Development – Part 1 and Part 2” could be related and analysed jointly with results from the SELFIE WBL Area “Leadership”.
  • Select 2-3 focus areas/items within the SELFIE WBL report that you consider to be of greatest (organisational or practical) significance for developing the school’s digital innovation action plan. In doing so, you may opt to select three different SELFIE WBL Areas and then choose one item under each of those three. Alternatively, you may focus on just a single Area and select two to three items within that. In any case, you could select SELFIE WBL Areas with low overall scores or instead focus on any large discrepancies that may have emerged in the Area or item response ratings provided by the three different actor groups (i.e., school leader, teacher, and learner).
  • Investigate Selected SELFIE WBL Items.

Having selected the SELFIE WBL areas/items that you consider of specific interest to your school, you should further examine them to ensure (a) that all team members of the project team have a shared understanding of the issue/s at hand and (b) that there is ample awareness of the various critical points SELFIE WBL has brought to light. 

  • In case of a repeated SELFIE WBL exercise

Compare your results with the previous study and select those which have changed a lot. Investigate them in further details and try to find indicators for that change.
