Professional Learning

WAPPA is shaping current and future leaders with progressive leadership learning

iStar is a progressive pedagogy offering a common language of learning across your school.

It can be utilised as a simple lesson design to align common lesson elements, or as a visible learning strategy to share with students and colleagues. It is a connected teaching and learning model that can move across school communities.

The iStar acronym:



iStar has been researched and developed to support whole-school effectiveness, with a focus on teaching, learning and improved outcomes for all students. iStar is designed to encourage a disciplined discourse around the impact of teaching on learning. The iStar mind frame for connected practices works on the following three levels:

  • Securing connected practices for learning within classrooms
  • Moderating and strengthening connected practices for learning between classrooms
  • Leading and deepening connected practices for learning across classrooms - a whole school perspective.
