Cultural narratives

Cultural narratives are increasingly recognised as powerful enablers in connecting our past to the present. They situate us in the context of the places we co-inhabit, and recognise the influences of people, places, time and events in shaping who we are. arrow_forward

Schools as part of community

What happens when we create more permeable boundaries to our classrooms and schools, and regard them as being more integrally a part of the rest of what happens in the community - no longer a ‘walled garden’? arrow_forward

7 Micro credentialing 200px

Historically our ability to have our learning recognised has depended on completing large ‘chunks’ of learning that are determined and packaged up by the providers of that learning. Micro-credentialing returns the ownership to the learner, and allows them to map their own pathway through the things of interest to them, and have it recognised in a transferrable way. arrow_forward

Human capital

Recognising the changing nature of work makes it difficult to know what specifically we ought to be preparing people for, and that we must be continually learning and changing to acquire skills and dispositions - the shift is to investing in people and recognising that human capital as essential. arrow_forward

New ways of talking about being successful along with traditional ways of measuring success, personally and as a nation, are often linked with economic outcomes and social status. In a world where these things may no longer hold the value they once did, we need to consider new ways of thinking about success. arrow_forward
