When educators embrace student-centred learning, classrooms
transform, learning comes alive and outcomes improve. A culmination of Lee
Watanabe-Crockett’s years of work with schools around the world, Future-Focused Learning: Ten Essential
Shifts of Everyday Practice
details ten core shifts of instructional
practice teachers can use with students immediately, regardless of core
curriculum or instructional pedagogy. These proven shifts offer a clear pathway
for taking the great work teachers already do and making it exceptional.

F–12 teachers will:

  • connect the six essential fluencies –
    solution fluency, information fluency, creativity fluency, media fluency,
    collaboration fluency and global digital citizenship – to the shifts to develop
    students’ 21st century skills and higher-order thinking

  • gain one hundred specific examples of instructional
    microshifts – simple classroom activities to advance classroom learning

  • explore topics in student-centred learning
    – essential questions, process-oriented learning and learner-created knowledge

  • personalise student learning and improve
    outcomes through increased connection

  • improve formative assessment practices to
    be more mindful, and further student engagement by involving them in the
    assessment process.
