To achieve transformational change for schools we have to agree on certain principles of pedagogy. At the core of the transformation is the student as an active learner and the teacher as the enabler of their learning. The aim of the transformation is to move teachers away from more traditional practices and habits that make assumptions about learning and learners, towards more empowering practice by:
Providing teachers with the ideas and tools to apply their learning to their practice,
Extending their repertoire and
Transforming their perception of the goals of education.
The pedagogic shift (or learning movement) promoted by ICSL is summarised in table below:
ICSL Learning Movement
(Adapted from rationale and aims by Professor Patricia Murphy).
It is important for you, your teachers and the management of the school to agree on this shift and resolve to adapt it in the new school system.
