All sessions will provide an introduction to key ideas, concepts, actors and terms across these topics. This will be accompanied by collaborative activities and small group discussions to explore more in depth your own opinions, experience and ideas around how to bring this back to your classrooms and students. While many of the ideas apply broadly to education at all levels, specific activities and examples will be focused on a secondary school level. 

AM 1

What do we want from education?
We’ll start with a brief overview of the broader discourses happening right now in education such as the SDGs, 4th Industrial Revolution, Socio-emotional learning/Life Skills, 21st century skills…There are many conversations, critiques and ideas about the direction education should be moving. We will get a sense of these discussions and place our conversation within this landscape.

What does this mean for the future of learning? 
We will start to talk about how to imagine a good education, what skills we want to develop in students, how can quality education and learning be assessed in this context and what is the purpose of educating. These are important starting points to thinking about what the future of learning means in the classroom. 


AM 2

Big ideas in the classroom

What does this mean for teachers?
While this seems like a great deal of new information, possibilities and aspirations, we’ll dive into some key areas that teachers can focus on to begin to translate some of these ideas into student learning in concrete ways. The main areas of focus will be: communication & collaboration, digital skills, global citizenship, and resilience & adaptability.
