The challenge is to first rethink the learning process and the consequent design of the learning spaces.
Rethinking the Learning Process
Recently I was visiting a school where the principal and his leadership team were keen to explore what is possible for the learning spaces and for learning.
The conversation covered a wide area of thinking. Three key things seemed to emerge:
- Personalising the learning for students
- Ensuring deep learning
- Teacher learning to support innovation and transformation of practice to personalise the learning for deep learning.
The school was left with an interesting challenge through which to explore key concepts and to engage students, staff and the broader community. The challenge was to explore what might be possible.
What might schools look like if they didn't look like traditional schools?
What would learning look like if it didn't look like it presently does?
How might students respond to this?
What might they design?
