The implementation of the Australian Curriculum provides an opportunity to deliver on the outcomes for schooling expressed in the Melbourne Declaration on Educational Goals for Young Australians (MCEETYA 2008). Using the resources and activities below, principals and curriculum leaders are able to embrace uncertain, complex and diverse contexts and work with others to seek creative and innovative solutions that support quality outcomes for all.
This activity provides opportunities for educators to reflect on their learning styles and that of others. They will investigate the history of schooling and consider what 21st century education might look like.
Before this session it would be useful to do some background reading. A good resource is The evolution of education in Australia (McCreadie,M 2006, IFHAA) www.historyaustralia.org.au/ifhaa/schools/evelutio.htm
This project is funded by the Australian Government Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations.
