LEAP21 in South Africa: report from Kylie in Joburg

This is my first blog, but I am so excited about the workshop I am running in South Africa at the moment that I thought it very blogworthy!

I am in Johannseburg working with Microsoft and Pearson International on a LEAP21 Master Trainers workshop to equip educational leaders, researchers and teachers in three different areas of South Africa with the skills to develop and measure 21st century learning activities.

It has been a very successful workshop. It is amazing how transferable the Innovative Teaching and Learning dimensions are across global contexts and how similar the conversations.

I will post some photos when I get back!

Cheers, Kylie.

Dr Kylie Shaw, NuLearn.

Global project – Innovative Teaching and Learning

Kylie Shaw and I have recently returned from the AERA 2012 conference in Vancouver. We presented some of the Australian findings from the Microsoft and NSWDEC sponsored research project ‘Innovative Teaching and Learning’. We were joined by researchers from the US, Brunei and Finland who are also participating in the project. Other countries not present include the UK, Indonesia and Mexico. It was fascinating to hear of the different learning contexts of each participating country and yet to find that we face many similar challenges in moving towards 21st century Innovative Teaching and Learning in our schools.
