Overview: Innovative Education, Successful Students states; To succeed in the future, our students will require research, problem-solving and critical thinking skills. They will need to be able to work independently and together with groups of other students. The spaces our children learn in have to be more flexible with the innovative integration of new technology and better opportunities for student/teacher collaboration. This session will introduce teachers to the Futures Learning Unit within the Department of Education and a design thinking approach to transitioning learning spaces with pedagogy at the core. They will have the opportunity for rapid prototyping of a flexible learning space.
