This seminar will explore how we can create learning communities and environments “where everybody’s in and not excluded intentionally, by design, or unintentionally" — Edgar Schmidt.
This session aims to position the environment as a foundational and powerful influence in learning. The session content will ground consideration of the environment in contemporary theoretical views, drawing on features of future focused education and making links to social competence, sustainability, creativity and culture.
This session draws on the themes of future focussed learning as a framework to underpin the importance of social competence for 21st century learners. Personalising learning, rethinking learning and the role of the teacher will be explored as a foundation for practice. Specific attention will be paid to pedagogy and approaches that contribute to social success for learners.
