Our teachers have started the year exploring our vision at Freemans Bay School, that twenty-ﬁrst century education must be future oriented and adaptable to meet the learning demands of an increasingly global, diverse and complex world.
We have been exploring National and International research on the future of learning and practices of innovative schools and educators.
At Freemans Bay School we have adopted a future orientated approach to learning in the twenty-first century encompassing themes identified to the recent New Zealand Council for Educational Research (NZCER).This research. " identiﬁed key themes for a connected and coherent future-oriented learning system. These themes include a commitment to personalising learning, a curriculum that uses knowledge to develop learning capacity, the rethinking of learners’ and teachers’ roles, and the forging of new partnerships with the wider community."
Our first teacher workshops of the year had our teachers working collaboratively to explore effective and innovative ways that we can strengthen our practices in 2013.
Teachers started in groups exploring these resources.
