Students: The New Drivers of Change: We need students who can act with agency at school to achieve the sort of learning required for life.


Key Issues:


  • How do schools unleash - and cultivate - student agency?

  • What implications for Learning? Curriculum? Assessment? Values? Community? Teacher Education and Leadership arise from an aim to develop young people as ‘drivers of change’?

  • Does learning in your school need to change to unleash student agency?


Students who co-design learning, take action in the real world, develop capabilities to be entrepreneurial, interculturally-minded, creative, ethical and critical thinkers will gain the skills they need for future work and life …and to solve the unprecedented local and global challenges of our times like peace, equality and sustainability.


Teaching 21C 2020 presents a thought provoking and informative conference to explore these questions.
