Why is what you do important?
The 21st Century has heralded a rapid growth in information, technology and changing circumstances for our society let alone our students. You just need to read the news media to be aware of our society being in the midst of a profound shift in our dominant paradigm. We can all see the interplay of the different paradigms, mindsets and thinking in the actions of people around the world each day. Can we really operate in this new world as we did in the “Good Old Days”?
This technology driven revolution will have a greater impact on our culture and society than did the Agricultural or Industrial Revolution. Why? It will happen in a much shorter timeframe than either of those paradigm shifting revolutions.
The challenge for educators lies in preparing students (and yourselves) for a world which is constantly changing and will look significantly different in the next 30 years let alone the lifetime of the students you educate.
Yet you don’t want to throw away all the lessons and experiences you have learnt from the past. What you need to do is look through new eyes, to keep the best of your experiences, to be at the source of what it is that works and to build and refine your practices as the tools of learning change.
In a world of constant change you need to develop students and educators to be life-long independent learners who have strength in their attitude and mindset, strength in life skills so they can adapt and grow, and strength in thinking and learning.
What we provide for schools are practical research based conversations and structures to support you in developing your capacity to empower your students and staff in a constantly changing world.
We support you, teachers and schools in your planning, thinking and education to work out what will work best in your environment and your circumstance. We facilitate leadership teams and school leaders to become clear and plan to achieve their visions. We are critical friends to principals and members of leadership teams to support their individual development.
We don't tell you or sell you. We work with you in partnership for what works best for you, your students, your teachers, your parents, your school.
We are champions for people and learning.
