Transforming our students’ experiences - Future-focused learning design - Karen Melhuish Spencer

In recent years there have been exciting developments in what we know about effective learning practice, including increased calls for a more inclusive approach to learning than we have seen in the past. From competency-rich curriculum to inclusive learning enabled by digital technologies, the time is right to consider what, how and why your school could transform its approach to learning to benefit all, not just some, of the students. Using CORE’s 10 Trends for 2015 as a backdrop, this session will provide a space to explore these ideas. Come prepared to reimagine learning in ways that put your students front and centre.

This CORE breakfast seminar will:
- look at what we know to be sound, effective approaches for thinking about future-focused transformation
explore the big ideas, what we know works and the implications for your own school
- highlight the indicators of effective learning and practice from current research
- share stories of schools who have successfully approached transformation and future-focused learning.

  18. 18. https://www.flickr.com/photos/freeparking/3790779599 “I always felt like I was on the edge of being in trouble. I would experience …cutting expressions. So I learnt how to fit in and play the game. With hindsight I wonder what it might have been like if people had just talked to me and come to understand what was going on for me. But that wasn’t the way then. Many disorders hadn’t even been invented by then. Education was done to you. I think some things are different now. But only in an adhoc way, not systemically.” - growing up with autism/ADD, 1970sKaren Melhuish Spencer | @virtuallykaren | #corebreakfast |

  45. 45. 45 I made it very clear from the start that I wanted to get to know these boys …really well. I wanted to know why they did/ did not enjoy Science. I wanted to know what they enjoyed learning about and what they enjoyed doing in their spare time. I wanted to know what mattered the most to them about learning… Then I assured them that I cared, and that we could achieve credits AND enjoy the learning/course.” - Matty Nicoll, St Andrew’s College, http:// classroommatt.blogspot.co.nz/ https://www.flickr.com/photos/beryl_snw/7590218158 Karen Melhuish Spencer | @virtuallykaren | #corebreakfast |

Nothing can be directly implemented from elsewhere. Everything must be designed to fit your uniqueness.” 56 - Bill Martin on Fullan; Image: https://www.flickr.com/photos/87752573@N00/2676290755 Karen Melhuish Spencer | @virtuallykaren | #corebreakfast |
