As schools implement the new Australian Curriculum across learning areas, we are seeing how a stronger focus on inquiry is providing opportunities for schools to move beyond the ‘what’ of teaching to explore the ‘how’ of teaching. This has resulted in some schools reinventing the way they design learning spaces, rethinking the structure of the school day and academic structure of what constitutes a class, and developing personalised learning pathways for individual students within and beyond the school.
These schools are transforming what we have traditionally experienced as school education. They are future focused, and rewriting the rules of engagement in schooling. Students are engaging with issues that will directly affect their future, such as sustainability, globalisation, citizenship, and enterprise. They are developing knowledge, skills, and dispositions to help them cope with what the future may hold. They are designing, creating, and inventing new products and doing things that will help shape their lives as they move into the world of work.
The Summit will consist of a series of presentations that provide perspectives from system leaders, principals, classroom teachers, and teacher librarians.
