There is a growing awareness of 21st Century Learning (21CL), especially since it has been reflected within the Australian National Curriculum. There is also a wide appreciation of its value, which is supported by a wealth of evidence from educational researchers. However, as yet, few teachers know how to design lessons to put it into practice.
 
Here’s an opportunity to take the lead in your school and discover, as one participant puts it: “being a part of something new and exciting; allowing me to increase my skills and learning whilst teaching my students.”
 
Over two days you’ll work together with other teachers in a collaborative and supportive environment to understand:
 
·         The six skill-sets today’s students will need in the workplace and their future lives
·         The innovative rubrics for measuring use of these skills in classroom and project work
·         How 21CLD links in with the Australian Curriculum
·         How to create a compelling case for 21CL in your school
 
You’ll also learn how to code and redesign your own curriculum, to get you started on implementing 21CL on your return to school. An online discussion with fellow participants six weeks later will give you the opportunity to share your successes and discuss overcoming any roadblocks you may have encountered.
