As educators, we strive for excellence. We are also driven to push our students to achieve excellence. Through various forms of education, whether it be formal or informal and via a multitude of tools, we, collectively are trying to help todays generation be more successful than our own generation.
I am currently in the process of creating a program for my school that incorporates the National Curriculum. This is not as easy as it sounds. A personalised learning folio for over 1000 students to achieve a minimum of 7 general capabilities is rather complex. There is a heavy emphasis on students being able to complete a plethora of tasks and activities whilst taking ownership for their own learning. We as educators are also completing a huge number of tasks and aim to build the profile of our school and our students. We all thrive in providing the best offerings to students, and until we decide to retire, we will all keep working just as hard, because, really, it's all about the kids! So, teachers, educators, trainers everywhere....please keep inventing and creating new pedagogies that will lead future generations into greatness.
