The Learning Renaissance

Future Learning Models – An End to Curriculum!

Seymour Papert was seeing it clearly two decades ago.

The pace of change in knowledge is so fast that it is meaningless to build a curriculum on a foundation of specific knowledge. Such knowledge will be largely redundant by the time learners put it into operation beyond school.

The future curriculum will be in part created by the learner, with fewer fixed points to scaffold it and more reliance on Attitudes, Behaviours and Competences.

I'm convinced we can, as a species, do much better than this if we set our minds to being much more positive and productive towards our fellow humans. The solution is learning - creating independent and autonomous learners who can problem solve, innovate and create a better more equitable and sustainable world.

    This fits in so well with the concept of LQ which consists of a set of skills, attributes, attitudes and behaviors and enables the learner to manage their own learning..

    Is this the time (COVID-19 isolation) for this? We certainly have done away with a lot of things as many pupils are now “homeschooled” able to learn alongside siblings of different ages and adults. Not each home circumstance will be the same nor will the approaches taken, the ‘timetable’ or the encouragement or motivation. Perhaps we also now need to focus on the role of the parent in supporting learning at home.
