Future-focused learning prepares students across all curriculum areas and learning stages with skills and capabilities to thrive in a rapidly changing and interconnected world. It connects students and engages their sense of curiosity.
Future-focused teachers know and understand the needs and talents of their students. They are flexible and select from a range of effective teaching strategies.
Future-focused learning environments inspire students to be leaders of their own learning. Students collaborate and use critical and creative thinking to solve complex problems and become mindful global citizens.
The general capabilities in the Australian Curriculum and learning across the curriculum content in NSW syllabuses cover the knowledge, skills, behaviours and dispositions that will assist students to actively shape their future. Students develop these capabilities when they apply knowledge and skills confidently, effectively and appropriately in complex and changing circumstances, in their learning at school and in their lives outside school.
