This presentation will showcase the necessity of transforming practice to reflect modern learning in a 1:1 programme. I will highlight how we sought to transform our pedagogy to reveal significant classroom engagement and student learning by investing time to establish a pedagogical dialogue in teachers' schedules trough "pedagogical circles". Inspired by the work of Ritchhart, Church and Morrison  (2011) and Ritchhart  (2015) through Project Zero at Harvard, teachers delved into an examination of their practice to integrate "visible thinking" routines to transform their pedagogy and engage students in deeper thinking and learning. Through "pedagogical circles", teachers have led pedagogical and physical transformations of their classrooms to exhibit active and deep learning. Records of teachers' reflections and classroom observations on a blog, as well as bi-monthly discussions were instrumental to bringing forward significant change.
