I am still learning (Michelangelo)
Australian Institute of Teacher and School Leadership (AITSL)
AITSL has a clearing house of reseach papers, blogs, videos and interviews that explore a wide range of topics. The following link explores innovation in education and was published as a collection in March.
The NSW Board of Studies is beginning a conversation around how we assess students. What does a 21st Century HSC look like? Should all subjects be examined with a 3 hour writing task or are there more authentic means of assessing students' knowledge, skills and abilities. Are we preparing our students to take their place in the academic world and in the workplace within a 21st century framework?
You will find a broad range of topics including: Nine Rules for Stiffling Innovation
(A piece from the Harvard Business Review blog network provoking us to think about managerial and leadership practices that may currently be preventing innovation within our workplace or organisation); How Disruptive Innovation Changes Education (An interview with Clayton Christensen, Michael Horn and Curtis Johnson, authors of the influential Disrupting class: How disruptive innovation will change the way the world learns) and 10 Ideas for 21st Century Learning (Across the world there is a growing global movement towards achieving the vision of 21st century education. The authors present their view of what this vision looks like in practice. They challenge the assumptions that have underlied our education) to name a few.
