 “The crux of success or failure is to know
which core values to hold on to, and which to
 discard and replace when times change.”

  A new
education
narrative
Curriculum is redundant

Learning is about relationships / meaning /
community

We can no longer fit technology into
„business as usual‟

Education requires distributive leadership

We are all learners now
A new kind of learning...


...in which learners take more
  and more responsibility for
their own learning as they get
             older...
A new kind of learning...

  ...in which teachers work with
students in an open, collaborative
     way, with the teaching and
learning that goes on the result of
       a continual process of
            negotiation...
A new kind of learning...
 ...in which teachers are freed to do
what they do best - to teach, to work
with young people to help them get
 the best out of their own efforts, to
    advise, to counsel, to cajole, to
     persuade, and, yes, to impart
      knowledge where required...
A new kind of learning...

 ...in which young people will be able
 to bring their passions firmly inside
      the bounds of their schooling
 (instead of having to defer their real
    interests to their lives outside of
     school, as is so often the case)
A new kind of learning...


    ...in which what has been
   peripheral becomes the core
A new kind of learning...


    ...a kind of learning in which
  curriculum content is no longer
  fixed by some central authority
    but is universally negotiable
A new kind of learning...


   ...in which teachers can accord
 learners the maximum respect by
     acknowledging that they are
              learners too
“In times of change learners inherit the earth; while
the learned find themselves beautifully equipped to
       deal with a world that no longer exists.”
