"Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire." -- William Yeats

What is Learning?

 

Learning takes place when children demonstrate new extensions to their existing neuronal constellations and when existing constellations have been consolidated.

What is Learning?

 

  • Knowledge, skills and understanding represent three different kinds of learning that need to be taught learned and assessed differently
  • Everybody learns in different ways
  • Learning includes the academic, physical, emotional and rational
  • Learning needs to be contextual and connected
  • We learn best when we are actively engaged
  • We need to foster growth mind-sets and transform fixed mind-sets
  • We need to build in time to the curriculum for reflective ‘slow thinking’
  • Learning needs to be contextual that shows connections between the subjects they study and their own lives
  • Learning is more than just being in school
  • We are continually learning more about how we learn, and we need to take account of latest brain research.
  • For our students to reach their learning potential we need to support the learning of the entire school community.
