|What Is Student Engagement And How Do We Re-frame It For 21st century Students? (5 minutes)|
A powerpoint presentation, with commentary, on a different way to think of Student Engagement. Based upon the difficulties the Learning Futures schools are facing in using conventional models of Engagement, I suggest a a broader, and more ambitious way of framing Engagement. At the heart of this concept are the overlapping spheres of School, Community and Family, with four characteristics (Place, Purpose, Principle & Prolonged) that we should be aiming for when designing curriculum and pedagogy with (not for) students
| Extracts From 'Why The World's Gone SOFT' speech (10 minutes)
This clip is taken from Keynotes at AMC Conference in Adelaide, South Australia and South-West Music Services, Taunton, UK, September 2008. The talk looks at a range of examples which show how young people, and our more innovative global companies, are communicating and doing business, increasingly driven by four social characteristics: Sharing, Open, Free, Trust. I'll put more of this talk here in due course.
