A ‘Compelling Learning Experience’ Pupil Voice! That was brill! I can’t wait until tomorrow when we have it next! I didn’t realise old Bam Bam still had it in him! If it was like that all the time, I’d put more effort in! That made me think a lot! My brain hurts! Two weeks until the next lesson – I can’t wait that long! I will never forget that lesson! I would take part more if the lessons were all like that!

PASSING GO Ah well, homework, then. He turned the screen off and reached reluctantly for his schoolbag. Half of it was geography, which was nearly all colouring in and copying and drawing. Kid’s work. He had thought that the colouring would stop when he was at secondary school, but no such luck. Resignedly pulling the folder towards him and starting to shade in a patch of steppe …. He put the finishing touches to ‘Africa – main crops’ and looked, with disfavour, at ‘Africa – climate’. One day, work and life would not be this boring. ‘ Passing Go’ – Libby Purves (2000) Some Inspiration ……

‘ Habits of Mind’ – “ What I do when I don’t know the answer” (Student – St Cuthbert’s College, New Zealand)

 

WHAT IS A SOUTH MOLTON LEARNER LIKE? What do we see them doing? What do we hear them saying? What are they feeling?

WHAT DO WE WANT A SOUTH MOLTON LEARNER TO BE LIKE? What do we want to see them doing? What do we want to hear them saying? What do we want them to feel?

“ Twenty-first Century Tools for Twenty-first Century Learners” 3000?

It is estimated that today’s learners will have 10-14 jobs By the age of 38 The top 10 in demand jobs in 2010 did not exist in 2004

We are currently preparing students for jobs that don’t yet exist – using technologies that have not yet been invented – in order to solve problems we don’t know are problems yet
