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.
Using the NZCER 'Me and My School' engagement survey as a context, we will discuss what research suggests about how important it is to know both teachers' and students' views of what they think engagement with learning looks like. Cathie will connect the aspects of engagement explored in the survey with the front end of the curriculum, in particular thinking about the key competencies being ‘the key to learning in all learning areas' (NZC p12).
