Passive to Active Learners

We have been spending a lot of time discussing and developing a shared understanding of what it means to be a learner at Ngaere School.

We want our students to 'own' their learning; to know what they are learning and why they are learning it; to know what 'comes next' (learning does not stop); to be able to describe how they are progressing and how they know they are progressing. We want them to be able to say they are in charge of their learning, that they know and regulate their learning progress and pathway.

We need to move our students from 'passive learners' to 'active learners' with the skills and competencies to manage their own learning journeys. We need our students to be partners in learning focused relationships with their teachers.

We are working alongside 'expert' Ben Laybourne from Evaluation Associates as we explore turning this into reality. Ben is also working with other schools in our Kahui Ako (Community of Learning).
