The Paul Hamlyn Foundation, in partnership with The Innovation Unit, are promoting an exciting project that aims to look at Next Practices in curricular or cross-curricular models of learning and pedagogy. This builds on the innovative and highly successful work on Musical Futures which many secondary schools are using here in Leeds.
Their booklet "Learning Futures" sets out the reasons why innovation is needed to inspire young people, and enable all of them to confidently meet the challenges of the 21st Century. Learning Futures argues that some key emergent and some well-known practices, taken together, can transform learners' and teachers' experience of schooling. It is an invitation to secondary schools wishing to develop and extend their work in this direction more profoundly, to engage with the Learning Futures project, commencing in 2008.
