The 21st century school. For long we have talked about what this might be. Now we talk about how we make this happen. A school in which we prepare our students for an innovative, skills rich, creative 21st century future that as yet remains undefined. A school in which traditional classrooms disappear.A new breed of school where learning space is free flowing and infinite; where technology informs physical design, where a progressive school administrator and manager and an innovative and future thinking teacher are both clued in to the world in which their students must live and participate.Where learning is about inquiry and discovery; critical thinking and problem solving, communication and collaboration, creativity and innovation. And most of all about experience and doing.This conference will bring together some of the most innovative schools and educators from across Australia to discuss new thinking and insights, to share experience and plans and to consider the pathways for capacity building for the Australian school of the 21st century. In doing this we consider how our schools make the transition while retaining the core values of education.Key conference themes include:What is the culture of Australian schooling? How has this changed?What will be the form and shape of the 21st century Australian school?How do we teach? How do we learn? How has and will this change?Transforming the learning environment - physical transformation and the digital revolutionCreative learning and teachingLeadership and strategic innovationCapacity buildingInnovation and change management - percolating organisational change through all levels of schools - administration and management, teaching and learning, student experience and supportThe student speaksParents speak
