For more than a decade, our team has carefully and deliberately crafted Stile to empower science educators to be active, engaged and prepared facilitators of student learning. Every aspect of Stile is built in-house by our passionate team of teachers, scientists, artists and engineers, right here in Melbourne.
Stile is a complete, coherent curriculum for Victorian science classrooms. Our resources are designed to help students be the best learners they can be while supporting teachers to maximise their impact. As outlined below, Stile fully aligns with each aspect of the Victorian Teaching and Learning Model (VTLM).
Stile and the Victorian Teaching and Learning Model
The VTLM, released by The Department of Education and Training in 2019, aims to support teachers and school leaders to “focus on high-impact teaching and learning”. In our mission to provide a high-quality science education for every student, we’re passionate about empowering teachers to do what they do best. That’s why each aspect of the VTLM is represented in Stile.
The VTLM is aligned with the core elements of the Framework for Improving Student Outcomes (FISO) 2.0 and consists of five components:
- Vision for Learning and Wellbeing
- Practice Principles for Excellence in Teaching Practice
- Pedagogical Model
- High Impact Teaching Strategies
- High Impact Wellbeing Strategies
