Instruction and learning starts with a problem or a solution in needs of a design. Learning is authentic and active. Students read, search, research, analyze, compose, and produce. There is abundant chance to learn individually, in small groups, and in large groups.
Traditionally art and science learning and teaching have been compartmentalized whereas research has shown that both in the brain areas and in life they are integrated. Co-design and development of these classes; learning goals, curriculum, instructional activities, and assessment are sought after.
Learning is best using multi-channels than single. Deep-learning is emphasized over passive absorption. Deep-learning is not possible without re-creation, montage, or ‘making anew’ or ‘making it yours’. Internalized knowledge through first hand deep processing and discovery is long lasting and meaningful.
Each child is unique and even though desired educational standards are similar for everyone, learning objectives should manifest as individualized versions of them. Learning objectives are not content based but process and performance based and can be accomplished by each child in a different way.
Outside school activities and learning should find their place appropriately in teaching and learning. Opportunities to observe, record, analyze, and understand significant objects, structures, resource people, original sources etc. are recommended. Outreach, social responsibility and community service projects are considered as curriculum and school learning. School should be positioned as centerpiece for a continuously ‘learning-reflecting’ community.
Authentic assessment and compatibility of curriculum, instructional strategies and exams should be secured. ‘Testing as still a part of learning’ should be emphasized. Self-assessment, projects, performance projects, and open exams are considered.
Managing own learning processes and paths are emphasized because school is life. Self-assessment rubrics designed by students, individualized extended projects in interest or expertise areas are encouraged. Semi–student organized activities, and student run clubs and extra-curricular activities are suggested. Motivation is taught and utilized as raw material. Students as lifelong learners is embedded here.
