The world today has become smaller than ever thanks to the advances of technology and being connected anywhere and anytime. Learning in today’s world means that learners must be equipped with the necessary skills to navigate their way through a technology-based environment. Teaching must change and adapt to suit the environment and the learner. We must be flexible in our approach to how we engage learners, encourage curiosity and inspire creativity.
Students learn how to learn by engaging in the Learning Process. We use Discovery Learning Time and all curriculum areas as a way to focus and embed our Learning Process here at Woolsthorpe.
Our Learning Process model is designed to be a simple common language that all learners, both children and adults, can understand and use. Learners can identify and describe which part of the Learning Process they are in and why they are there. Our Learner Traits are important skills, which learners can draw upon when they are in any part of the Learning Process to overcome obstacles and be the best learner that they can be. Knowing what to do when learners don't know what to do is a valued part of the Learning Process.
Acknowledgement must go to the staff at Woolsthorpe Primary School for their feedback, ideas and input.
