The Learning Renaissance

Testing 3, 2, 1: Michael Lawrence Calls Out Standardised Education Practice

testing 3-2-1 michael lawrence

Like myself, my colleague Michael Lawrence is very taken with the Finnish education system and the reflection and professional thought that has gone into its creation.

The welfare and development of the individual child and all children were the basis for the re-evaluation of the system and its constant review.

From a very different cultural background, Singapore came to similar conclusions about the required shape of a curriculum to equip young people as 21st-century learners… both countries have abandoned a content-led curriculum model on the basis that content is ubiquitous in the computer age. Both countries are in the process of developing a project-based learning approach to the curriculum with the aim of making learners independent and autonomous, and their skills directly transferable from school to community and employment aspects of their life.

About educationalist04

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. My books, Future Proof Your School and Re-Examining Success together with this blog, explore how better learning outcomes for all can be achieved.
