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

We must get away from the idea: “ Forget the outside world, we’re going to teach things we’ve always taught and forget what’s going on out there” Outstanding OFSTED again? “ If you always do what you always did – you’ll always get what you always got”
