Keynote - “It’s not what you do, it’s the way that you do it; and that’s what gets results.”

A little song I know and love to inject into conversation about education says, “It’s not what you do, it’s the way that you do it; and that’s what gets results.”

All very good; but as the Head of a school, I am constantly preoccupied by the thought that we may not be getting either right. The ‘what’ that we provide through content and subject choices may not necessarily be the ‘what’ that our students need (or want). And the ‘how’ that leaders, teachers, parents, governing bodies and politicians all see as developing positive and responsible citizens is really not doing that at all. So what should students be learning and how should they be learning it?

ATL and the Teaching Revolution
When all the information in the world is available at the fingertips of every student then the key skills needed for success both academically and in the world of business and enterprise will be the skills of the self-regulated learner. At that point the development of self-regulated (self-managed, self-directed, independent, autonomous) learners will become the primary focus of schooling which will require all forms of transmission teaching to be replaced by process oriented, skills based, teaching. The ATL Skills programme at both the MYP and DP levels has been designed with this idea in mind because this is not the future, this is now.

This presentation will focus on how the successful design and implementation of an ATL Skills programme in any school could revolutionise teaching and learning, improve academic success rates and give all students the skills they need to create success for themselves in the 21st Century.
