Michael Fullan’s Topic Videos: Monitoring Progress


  • An ineffective way to monitor is to constantly look over someone’s shoulder to assess if they are doing it right.
    • I think this applies to educators and students.
  • Monitoring is not exclusively after the fact. It is built into learning. It is an ongoing part of the process.
  • Monitor what works so you can do more of it.
  • While monitoring, remain focused on goals and improvement but don’t forget to keep your eyes open for possibilities for innovation.
  • You can monitor goals and find new ways to do things at the same time.
    • This seems like a no brainer, but it is tough for some people.
