Our Views On Classrooms for Life-Long Learners

Learner-Centred Classrooms

Learner-Centred Instruction focuses on the needs, abilities, and learning styles of individual students.
Learner-Centred classrooms involve Learners in:
- engaging in tasks which attract the learners' interest.
- handling content the learners find meaningful.
- relating specific topics to broader (global) inter-disciplinary,
complementary concepts.
- developing interpersonal communication skills: including team-work, cooperation, leadership, recognising and serving the group's interests.
- consciously building a range of their own life-long learning capabilities.
- discovering and exploring the bases for their own individual perspectives.

Equipping Teachers for Learner-Centred Classrooms

We work with you to equip teachers with:
- a range of classroom methodologies which encourage
learners to interact with materials in focused ways
- an awareness of frameworks for developing fundamental competencies:
- 'process' skills: brainstorming, structuring speech & writing, publishing
- learning styles: auditory, visual, kinesthetic, and more
- effective questions: Blooms Taxonomy
- inquiry-based learning frameworks:
- an overview of learner-centered approaches:
- PBL / TBL (Project/Task Based Learning),

 


The greatest sign of a success for a teacher
    ...is to be able to say,
"The children are now working as if I did not exist."
Maria Montessori
The important thing is not so much
    that every child should be taught,
as that every child should be given the wish to learn.
John Lubbock
