From good to great – transforming road safety education for the 21st century: Pam Hook, Director of HookED, Education and Curriculum Consultant. This workshop was hosted by the NZ Transport Agency in Wellington on 6 October 2012. The workshop was well attended by policy makers, road safety co-ordinators and teachers from New Zealand and Australia. Pam outlines the five levels of SOLO Taxonomy, which provides educators with a simple and powerful model of learning outcomes. SOLO Taxonomy is used by many primary, intermediate and secondary students as a self-assessment tool. SOLO may be used in evaluations of road safety education to gather quality data about outcomes. It is used to plan for deep learning outcomes in curriculum resources, such as those released by the NZTA.
