paradigm shifting?

August 28, 2012

 

Despite the awkward encumbrance of “21st century learning” and a “21st century education” label appearing self-conscious when we’re already into the second decade of this century, what’s offered here resonates for a few good reasons:

  • The vision contextualises our Australian voice and imperative within a global movement
  • AITSL and the Australian curriculum are enshrined as purposeful
  • urgency of change erodes resistance

Now, where to apply the inspiration? Tomorrow morning’s Techie Brekky, perhaps.

I love the idea shared @AnneKnock via today’s Twitter stream, that popup professional learning sessions during lunch in the staff room could be useful when promoting social networking. Something to trial, and I’ll see how the idea fares in practice.

Further reading here thanks to @staceyt – again via Twitter.

the édu flâneuse

"For the perfect flâneur, for the passionate observer, it's an immense pleasure to take up residence in multiplicity, in whatever is seething, moving, evanescent and infinite: you're not at home, but you feel at home everywhere, you're at the centre of everything yet you remain hidden from everybody." Baudelaire
