From Curriculum to Culture, here is a School By Design! Developing a Growth-minded school is about growing learners into creative, risk-taking individuals with strong  intrapersonal and interpersonal skills.

Kelly Christopherson's curator insight, October 28, 2014 11:57 AM

Developing a Growth Mindset in education is crucial to shifting the culture of schools and reimagine the role of teachers, students and parents in a new school paradigm where learning is not directed by knowledge acquisition but by developing and creating.

Self-directed learning should have been part of the learning model for students prior to the 21st Century.

buket's curator insight, January 4, 2014 12:21 AM

When students feel that they have the ownership of their learning, and they are learning with their peers, with collaboration, their learning promotes and so does their personal growth. SDL follows a series of steps in which students decide what, where, when, and how to learn. (Baumgartner,2003)

To Advance Education, We Must First Reimagine Society

To Advance Education, We Must First Reimagine Society | Educational Leadership | Scoop.it
“Why haven't education reform efforts amounted to much? Because they start with the wrong problem, says John Abbott, director of the 21st Century Learning Initiative. Overhauling the educational paradigm means replacing the metaphor — the concept of the world and its inhabitants as machine-like entities — that has shaped the education system, as well as many other aspects of our culture.”Creating “Collaborative Learning Communities”“It is essential to view learning as a total community responsibility,” he says, and to expect no short cuts. Children need to be integrated, fully contributing members of the broader community, so they can feel useful and valued. (It is not just the children who need this, he adds; healthy communities also need children.).On a practical level, the most powerful lever for change, Abbott says, is people coming together to “rethink the role of community in the learning process,” agreeing how to divide up responsibilities among professional teachers and other community members, and then launching small pilot projects that are true to their new vision. These efforts will build on each other, he says, and large-scale change will follow.

Changing the societal view of education might be difficult but to change the societal view of itself it will be essential for those in education to present a different view of what society can be and the way that it can function.
