In BC we have networks of schools who are pursing inquiries (and sharing them) that focus on supporting learners in the following areas:
- Innovative Learning Environments
- Aboriginal Enhancement Agreements
- Healthy Schools
The following describes the opportunities for schools to join the network exploring innovation in the design of learning environments (see the bottom half of this post):
As you know, BC is an active member of the OECD international research study on Innovative Learning Environments and this year we have been identified as one of five international learning labs, partly as a result of the sustained focus on networked inquiry and leadership development connected with NOII.
Schools interested in exploring contemporary learning principles and directly becoming involved in this international work will have a chance to do so through the NOII inquiry process.
Below is an inquiry guide as well as the template for schools to use in submitting their questions. There is also a copy of the practitioners guide to The Nature of Learning which includes a good summary of the seven key learning principles that NOII schools will need to use to inform their inquiries.
