Most Likely to Succeed – Upcoming film screenings


MLTS quoteDET Learning and Teaching Branch in partnership with Bastow Institute of Educational Leadership are presenting a series of free screenings of the feature length edu-documentary Most Likely to Succeed at regional locations in August.

This inspirational film explores the possibilities of education when we provide opportunities for students to have strong agency over their learning.

Most Likely to Succeed looks at how one school has adopted a fresh approach to educating their students with great results. It also delves into the possibilities of how learning environments, building on passion and expertise, giving students a voice, and leveraging partnerships with parents and school community, can have a positive impact on student learning.

This award winning film reaffirms some of the great things we are doing in schools, and raises questions about what else can be done to provide our students with the best education.

Following the film there will be a panel discussion featuring school principals, education system leaders, students and industry leaders.

Twilight seminar: From Old School to Bold School (presented by Will Richardson)

Thurs 18th Aug 2016, 5:00pm – 6:30pm, Bastow Institute, North Melbourne

Schools around the world are beginning the shift to modern ways of thinking about learning in globally connected classrooms. As traditional structures fade in their effectiveness and relevance, a different approach to classroom practice is emerging, one built on deeply held beliefs about learning as seen through the powerful new contexts on technology, work, literacy, and global changes. Doing school “better” is no longer enough. Now, we are doing school fundamentally differently.

Based on decades of observation and research, international guest speaker Will Richardson will discuss a framework for change that is now being employed to fundamentally reframe both vision and practice to more fully meet the needs of contemporary learners.

This seminar will be presented by Will Richardson.

Cost: $35
