Description

Futurists know the world our students are growing up into is so different from the life we are living now. It is predicted that 40% of our current 5 years olds will need to be self-employed to have any form of income in the future. Whilst the school system was based on the premise of creating employees, people who turn up on time, do the work, don’t question the status quo, become a specialist, memorise content and clock out at the end of the day, these skills and characteristics are not ideal in the self employed world. Future generations require innovation, creativity, the ability to problem solve, critical thinking, understand others and their needs, to be able to promote, design, listen, focus, work independently and in teams, be self motivated, have flexibility, adaptiveness, digital literacy and so much more...

Ultimately what your learners need are the Learning to Learn skills of Life Long Learners.

Back by popular demand, Spectrum Education is bringing to you NZ’s most dynamic, award winning speaker, Karen Tui Boyes. Through the 6R’s, Karen will unpack the keys to unlocking the goldmine of potential in your classroom and give you practical strategies you can implement the very next day…
