We’re on the lookout for learning environments inside and outside of school that engage the hearts and minds of young people – where teaching and learning in the classroom is a truly reciprocal processes in which:
- Students are actively engaged in their own learning and are supported to create new perspectives and new knowledge.
- The exploration of students’ individual interests, passions and talents is an ongoing part of classroom learning.
- What students learn is ‘real’ and relevant to their lives now and in the future. Learning activities engage them in inquiries, problem-solving, and critical thinking.
- What students do and learn in their lives outside of school (for example, making music, engaging in social justice work or environmental activism) is valued in the classroom.
- Young people are motivated and engaged – socially, institutionally and intellectually.
