When the original Visible Learning® was published in 2008, it instantly became a publishing sensation. Interest in the book was unparalleled; it sold out in days and was described by the TES as revealing "teaching’s Holy Grail". Now John Hattie returns to this ground-breaking work. The research underlying this book is now informed by more than 2,100 meta-analyses (more than double that of the original), drawn from more than 130,000 studies, and has involved more than 400 million students from all around the world.

But this is more than just a new edition. This book is a sequel that highlights the major story, taking in the big picture to reflect on the implementation in schools of Visible Learning, how it has been understood – and at times misunderstood – and what future directions research should take.

Visible Learning: The Sequel reiterates the author’s desire to move beyond claiming what works to what works best by asking crucial questions such as: Why is the current grammar of schooling so embedded in so many classrooms, and can we improve it? Why is the learning curve for teachers after the first few years so flat? How can we develop teacher mind-frames to focus more on learning and listening? How can we incorporate research evidence as part of the discussions within schools?

Areas covered include:
  • The evidence base and reactions to Visible Learning
  • The Visible Learning model
  • The intentional alignment of learning and teaching strategies
  • The influence of home, students, teachers, classrooms, schools, learning, and curriculum on achievement
  • The impact of technology
Building upon the success of the original, this highly anticipated sequel expands Hattie’s model of teaching and learning based on evidence of impact and is essential reading for anyone involved in the field of education either as a researcher, teacher, student, school leader, teacher trainer, or policy maker.

'Reveals teaching's Holy Grail'

The Times Educational Supplement

"Reveals teaching's Holy Grail"

- The Times Educational Supplement

"I have no doubt that this final offering will be seen as prophetic, and will be discussed and debated for years to come... its commitment to scientific integrity, particularly with regard to pedagogical models and implementation, make it a touchstone text for teaching and leadership practice."
