Concept Learning

 

We believe a learner needs to be proficient at 6 important competencies in order for them to learn efficiently and effectively.

The competencies we focus on provide learners with the capacity to think and question, develop a growing language underpinning their learning, collaborate, manage self, connect and reflect knowledge, ideas and concepts and, importantly, come to terms with their own identity. Additional learning competencies include building a language to describe our own and others’ learning, and the ability to connect and reflect on our thinking, constantly reviewing it and making modifications where necessary.

Once the students understand the capabilities of these competencies and it becomes ‘the way we automatically do things’, they are able to apply the Learning Process in a manner that allows everyone to learn successfully.

We concentrate on one of the 6 competencies every term and give the learners experiences that help them to master the concepts involved.
