Learning Futures Collaborative- your views??

In the Learning Futures Collaborative at the beginnnign of March, five teacher groups presented stories of significant change from their Learning Futures pedgaogies. All thirty people present identified key ideas throughout all five presentations and then tried to match them onto the four Learning Futures themes: School as Basecamp, School as Learning Commons, EnquiryBased learning and Extended Learning Relationships. The themes we came up with are here: Themes for LF Collaborative. We invite you to reflect on how these themes we generated from our stories of profound change connect to the four Learning Futures themes.

Because the issues we face are complex and interconnected there are no straight forward answers – and it’s certainly more than one individual can take on. The days of command and control are past because we now realise that we live within[…]

Learning Futures Collaborative Learning Event

Here’s what we hope to achieve in our collaborative learning event on March 8th. You  bring a story of change from your Learning Futures work, with evidence of student learning and engagement. Your  story will be selected to re-present an aspect of the Learning Futures approach, ideally School as Basecamp or School as Learning Commons.  We are interested in YOUR learning about your students’ learning and engagement through these Learning Futures approaches.

Please see the sheet below for a summary of the four themes and the main findings from[…]
