The learning process, the competencies and learning domains are now equally significant capability sets. The competencies are increasingly significant, as we all struggle to manage the complexity of the world we work, play and build relationships within. We all need to learn to be more competent and more aware of how we affect those we work, play and build relationships with. Everyone now needs constant upskilling to keep up with new trends, efficiencies and the dynamics of our work, play, relationship and our capacity to learn ‘on the fly’. This approach applies to both learners and ourselves.
There are two versions of the competencies: The New Zealand Curriculum version and the Global version. Which one you choose is up to the school and each has its own nuance and advantages.
The NZ MoE version focuses on Thinking as the start point of learning and then tiers down through Managing Self, Participating and Contributing, Relating to Others and the use of Language Symbols & Text
The International version of the competencies begins with identity and then tiers down through Thinking & Questioning, Managing Self, Collaboration and Cultural Competence and the integrated competency of communication.
The competencies have become critical across the world as the work and play places we now engage in are no longer factories but rather they are team based, where each person contributes to the overall outcome that is being pursued.
In this session Mark will unpack the competencies and provide a resource that enables schools to choose the competency concepts that they consider important. By the end of the day you will leave with your customised version of the competencies that are sequenced across five developmental stages from year 1-10.
