Event Description

I ask you, "What would you do if YOU, your kids, friends, neighbours, colleagues could reinvent school?" You say?

The Reinventing School challenge is hands on, encourages discussion of the issues facing learners today and empowers young people, teachers and other members of the community to come up with solutions and share them for all to benefit.

Students, teachers and subject matter experts from all over are invited to get involved and collaborate. Form or join a team and research, ideate, design, remix and prototype new possibilities to reinvent the school experience.

The challenge can take place in or out of the school environment and teams can be a diverse mix of students, teachers, parents, business people. Teams can even be made up from people from different locations in the world, in fact we encourage students from Australia to collaborate with classrooms from other places.

Challenge 1. What does an ideal learning environment look like? 

Guiding questions:

What inspires you to learn?
What learning innovation have you used to teach or learn?
How might teachers, parents, and students work in a partnership?
How might we design the classroom of the future?

How may hours would this take to complete the challenge I hear you ask?

Minimum 3 hours but a total of 7x1 hour sessions would be ideal.
So 1 hour per week over the challenge period should do it.

You can use a self paced online course to guide your team through the process or just do it your way.

Catch up or recovery?

I've been intrigued by the language of "catch up" which has come from government ministers and even the Children's Commissioner. The idea that lockdown has resulted in lost learning and a widening of the gap can't be disputed but it is the solutions put forward by government which has revealed the reductive nature of the government's attitude to learning and to young people. To reduce education and learning to an accumulation of facts devoid from any contextual influence is just simply naive.…See More
