Future Focus Learning

Future-focused learning prepares students across all curriculum areas and learning stages with skills and capabilities to thrive in a rapidly changing and interconnected world. It connects students and engages their sense of curiosity.

Future-focused teachers know and understand the needs and talents of their students. They are flexible and select from a range of effective teaching strategies.

Future-focused learning environments inspire students to be leaders of their own learning. Students collaborate and use critical and creative thinking to solve complex problems and become mindful global citizens.

Learning Spaces

The role of teachers is evolving to support more student-centric approaches to better prepare learners for the future workforce, and new approaches to classroom design are supporting this shift. – (NMC/CoSN Horizon Report 2017 K-12 Edition)

  • are mobile, flexible, varied and connected
  • provide students with choice in where and how they learn
  • can be adapted to accommodate learning modes and technology
  • provide optimum learning conditions such as temperature, light and acoustics
  • support opportunities for students to learn independently and in small and large groups
  • support collaborative learning and teaching for students and teachers.
