An adaptation of the Continuum of Voice chart. The chart describes the three stages of personalised learning environments: Teacher- Centred Environments, Learner-Centred Environments, and Learner-Driven Environments.
This document, created by Derek Wenmoth, outlines the differences between existing teaching practices and agentic practice.
This resource is the result of a literature scan and a series of conversations with students and teachers from three New Zealand schools. The schools involved in this resource feature innovative learning environments (ILE). Students and teachers were asked similar questions about agency, and reviewed one another’s responses. Our approach identified ten conditions that foster agentic learners to support teachers, leaders, and learning communities to shift the ownership of learning.
We hope you will use these conditions to:
- explore new ideas, communicate challenges, and prompt learner focused discussions
- use the ‘shifting the ownership of learning review tool’ to “take the temperature” of learner agency within your school or community
- identify priorities and implement practices or systems that enable learner agency.
This resource is a practical tool for teachers or learning teams, leaders, educators, and learning communities to support the process of change and shift the ownership of teaching and learning, placing it firmly in the hands of the learners themselves.
At CORE we understand the richness of Te Marautanga o Aotearoa and The New Zealand Curriculum. We design products and services that support teaching and learning for year 1–8 learners in both Māori medium and English medium settings.
At CORE we understand the richness of Te Marautanga o Aotearoa and The New Zealand Curriculum, the intent of NCEA, and vocational pathways. We design products and services that support teaching and learning for year 9–15 learners in both Māori medium and English medium settings.
Designing a curriculum that is adaptive to local contexts and learners’ strengths and needs is complex. We work with you, aligning your curriculum and student learning experiences with your vision for student success.
Offering valuable tools for effective learning environments, digital technology supports personalisation, cooperative learning, and inquiry-based learning, as well as assisting with managing assessments.
The foundation for learner agency is teaching and learning, which is grounded in assessment for learning practices. We help you strengthen assessment for learning practices, so learners are active in all learning decisions.
Choice Words shows how teachers accomplish this using their most powerful teaching tool: language. Throughout, Peter Johnston provides examples of apparently ordinary words, phrases, and uses of language that are pivotal in the orchestration of the classroom.
In this essay, Yong Zhao argues that popular education reforms in the United States which have focused on fixing the past have been misguided attempts. Zhao argues for a new education paradigm to address the challenges that are brought about by globalisation and technological changes.
Yong Zhao outlines his new book, World Class Learners: Educating Creative and Entrepreneurial Students. Zhao says "The book is about preparing global, creative, and entrepreneurial talents. It is my attempt to answer a number of pressing questions facing education today".
The Ladder of Citizen Participation describes participation and the power relationships that this gives way to.
