    5. 5. “Curious individuals are unafraid to dream new dreams. Curious leaders believe that there is always more to learn by inquiring into what makes the most difference for their learners. “
    6. 6. “Inquiry demands that educators actively scan their environments, generate questions, try new approaches, observe and collect evidence, synthesize information from a variety of sources, draw conclusions and generate new questions. “
    7. 7. “We believe that the issues of quality and equity that confront us as BC educators demand our attention and require action. Simply maintaining the status quo is not acceptable; nor is uninformed innovation appropriate. We need to build on the strengths of the past and use the knowledge of the present as we design for the future.”

    19. 19. Principles for the learning environment 1. The learning environment recognizes learners as its core participants, encourages their active engagement and develops in them an understanding of their own activity as learners. 2. The learning environment is founded on the social nature of learning and actively encourages well-organized co-operative learning. 3. The learning professionals within the learning environment are highly attuned to the learners’ motivations and the key role of emotions in achievement. 4. The learning environment is acutely sensitive to the individual differences among the learners within it, including their prior knowledge. 5. The learning environment devises programs that demand hard work and challenge from all without excessive overload. 6. The learning environment operates with clear expectations, uses assessment strategies consistent with these expectations and strongly emphasizes formative feedback to support learning. 7. The learning environment strongly promotes “horizontal connectedness” across areas of knowledge and subjects as well as to the community and the wider world.
