1.9 MANAGING THE SCHOOL LEARNING JOURNEY
Is ‘learning to learn’ in your school not just for school but a skill for life?
Building portable Learning Power is not just about schooling the mind but engaging the whole person if, at school, we are to create the lifelong learner. The confident, competent and self-aware learner applies their learning intuitively throughout life by taking comfort from what they know to accommodate the new knowledge and experiences that come with the changes in their roles and responsibilities. They have learned to embrace change and not to resist it!
The embedding of Learning Power in every school student is challenging, takes time and is a commitment from which there is no escape if it is to be locked in to the fabric of everyday school life.
30 years of working with schools globally has given us a coherent picture of the three phases of program development required as schools embark on their own learning
- Leadership and taking the lead
- Teaching and classroom practice
- Student understanding and action
These 3 phases work in concert with one another, each exerting influence on the others as the program progresses.
