Learning intentions and learning outcomes - what's the difference?

    The slightly sarcastic part of me wants to say that:

    Learning intentions - What I hope they will learn.

    Learning outcomes - What they actually learn.

    And the two are not generally the same!

    But I think the 'correct' answer is that learning intentions is what you want them to learn, same as objective or WALT. And learning outcomes is what they will produce to show they have learned it. But I dunno...
  2. Thanks for this. I'm glad I'm not the only one!
  3. I use WALT - so what they will be learning (learning intention) The outcome is what they will have achieved by the end of the lesson/produced so the outcome will be differentiated based on ability whereas intention might not.
