Building Future Learning Systems: Ngā Kāwai Hono – where the web of relationships and virtual connections meet.
New Zealand is hosting the 12th Global Education Leaders’ Partnership (GELP) event for education system leaders from 22-24 November 2015 in Auckland, followed by visits to sites of education excellence that cover the full range of education provision in the NZ education system.
The event, Building Future Learning Systems: Ngā Kāwai Hono – where the web of relationships and virtual connections meet, will bring together global education system leaders committed to working and learning together to transform education systems so that every learner can develop the skills and knowledge they need to survive and thrive in the 21st century.
Presentations will focus on three key areas:
- What learning is for: ways of knowing and what is worth knowing informed by indigenous/First Nation perspectives, the growing diversity of our populations and the needs of society and economy.
- The shared responsibility for learning: co-ownership of learning outcomes through collaboration of education systems, local communities and new partners.
- Innovative learning environments: new models for learning, new pedagogies, digital learning and the educator workforce for the future.
The study visits to site of education excellence (25-26 November) provide participants with an opportunity to visit sites of learning to explore leading edge work New Zealand is doing to transform its education system to meet the needs of young people in a rapidly changing world.
Ngā Kāwai Hono is jointly hosted by the New Zealand Minister of Education, Hon Hekia Parata MP, the New Zealand Ministry of Education and the Global Education Leaders’ Partnership in collaboration with OECD Centre for Educational Research and Innovation.
