Developing Dispositions: A contemporary focus on teaching and learning

Teaching to the unknown - support children as lifelong learners and global citizens in a rapidly changing and increasingly complex world Presented by Jenna Close

Description

Children currently in your care and education setting will be between 10-15 years old by the year 2032, by which point statisticians estimate 85% of the employment opportunities will be jobs that currently do not exist. 

Imagine this statistic by the time children in your care intend to choose a career pathway or gain employment.  

“There’s no point preparing children with skills and knowledge when that learning is going to be redundant” (Sir Ken Robinson). 

So how could you possibly support children as lifelong learners and global citizens in a rapidly changing and increasingly complex world? How do you teach to the unknown? 

It's not about the blocks or play dough, but the activity being the vehicle for the acquisition of the disposition to learn. (Margaret Carr) 

Learning:

* What is learning

* Define dispositions 

* Explore the difference between learning and education 

* Strengthen assessment as learning

* How learner identity shapes outcomes and life-long success
