"So, a school that practices learning-literacy will be a school where:
- The distinctions between teacher and student begin to blur.
- There is less reliance on textbooks and authority, and more reliance on the work of learning.
- There is a natural convergence between the rich information skills of literacy and numeracy and the information and data that define the content areas.
- Teachers teach from new learning, as master learners.
- Digital Footprints become a central part of the school’s culture, building evolving personal and school identities based on learning and “doing” with the learning.
- The library magnifies the world outside, but also reflects the culture inside, curating collections of learner produced media products.
- Where learners learn, teachers model learning, and the school teaches the community.
How does this ring for you?"
I added the bold on the first point because I think this is the most significant point of a great list of significant points. Learning takes place when a group explores, someone needs to moderate and that is the role of the teacher. Point 5 is what I'm trying to get done; digital footprint is the product created and published from the process of learning. This is what we need to focus on over the coming year.
I also think my problem of coming up with the new labels has been solved: Student is changed to learner and teacher is changed to master learner.
