A part of learning how to learn and becoming an independent learner involves learning how to handle information from multiple sources of information and make links between these sources and different subject areas. In many schools students are fluent users of the Internet, but the term information literacy encapsulates a great deal more than information technology. It includes recognition of the need for information. It involves collecting, analysing and organising information from multiple sources and the ability to pose appropriate questions and integrate the information.

Our economy is changingUnified Europe:New markets, different cultures, new languages

Internet changes economies:Consumers can and will compare onlineOnline markets change distribution channels (retail) Changes communications: postal services, telephony

Our community changesOur youth changes

How can a child become successful if we do not know how our society looks like in 20 years.

Learn them to be creative, learn them to stand out, but most of all: learn them to learn!

ATC 21s.org (2010-2013) Assessment and Teaching of 21st century skills: White paper 21st century skills

Engaging people with learning throughout all stages of their lives

Vital if young people are to succeed in the knowledge rich, constantly-changing world Over 54% of the students that have successfully finished their secondary education have returned to study during their careers. Only less than 20% of students that have not finished their secondary education return to education during their careers.

Lifelong LearningBryce and Withers (2003) Lifelong learning is interpreted as engaging people with learning throughout all stages of their lives. Lifelong learning is therefore concerned with keeping students engaged in learning and developing in those students the characteristics that will make learning an integral and valued part of their lives when they leave school. A lifelong learning orientation to education is seen as vital if young people are to succeed in the knowledge rich, constantly-changing world of today and the immediate future.The foundation for lifelong learning is built during secondary and even primary education. Researchers Bryce and Withers (2003) show a clear relation between the dropout rate in secondary education and their return to study in later stages of life. Over 54% of the students that have successfully finished their secondary education have returned to study during their careers. Only less than 20% of students that have not finished their secondary education return to education during their careers.

Focus of a Lifelong Learning school:Focus on learn to learnLearning is fun and challenging21st Century skillsInformation LiteracyProblem-solving Creativity and experimentation Attitudes and valuesCuriosityDifferences and change are celebrated. Individual learning goalsNot necessarily to find a correct answer.Focus on rewarding students, no public grading Every student feels importantActive class room learningTeachers as Model Lifelong LearnersEducation is organized both horizontally and vertically

Are LL schools are successful?Research: 20 high performing colleges and universitiesengage students individually: Staff know their students: who they are, where they came from, what motivates and inspires the students and where they hope to go. faculty focus on active classroom learning.Flipping Classrooms project

Iowa State University research

Active classroom learning Validated with Blooms taxonomy of educational objectives.

focus on higher order thinking skills: analyse,evaluate and create while traditional classroomlearning only focuses on the first three layers The Friday Institute

Student centric learningCountries differ Less detailed national curriculum: Frame workGoals / end terms control systems like inspectorateBelgium, Estonia, Norway, Finland, Sweden, Slovenia, Croatia, Denmark, Iceland, UK, The Netherlands

Highly detailed national curriculum:Germany, Cyprus, France, Spain, Ireland, Scotland, Italy

Most countries: The level of school autonomy increases with the age levels

The countries that are innovating: No relation with autonomy / prescriptive curriculum. + Finland, Netherlands (secondary), Scotland, Ireland, Lithuania, Denmark,

- Demotivation of reachers in some countries due to lowered salaries

Highly prescriptive systems: Government leadsLess prescriptive systems: School leads

Make a difference:Individual school approachIn most countries, school leaders are the persons to initiate the lifelong learning philosophy. more teacher oriented in Southern European countries

Changing schools needs courage and conviction. the school head / teacher takes risks just because most people just do not like changes.A study of Bryce and Withers (2003) reveal that most of the schools in their research opted for a gradual shift towards lifelong learning.Bryce and Withers (2003)

1: AttentionSpread articles about the need to innovate.

99% of teachers agree that the internet enables students to access a wider range of resources than would otherwise be available, 65% agree that the internet makes todays students more self-sufficient researchers. 47% of the teachers strongly agree and another 44% somewhat believe that courses and content focusing on digital literacy should be incorporated into every schools curriculum. Pew Research Center,

2: InterestThere are a lot of interesting articles (source: www.ESHAmagazine.com ) that can be spread to raise the interest level of the teachers and managers.

Possible steps:ask for feedback about the articles. invite a consultant that discusses the relevanceset up a project team that will research the impact of the matter on the school. visit a school that has experience with lifelong learning3: DesireGain commitmentDiscusses the advice of the project team Discuss the school visit.

Get the vision accepted

Ensure that the staff feels safe: experimentations and thus failure is seen as a way to learn.

4: Implementation The principal appoints teachers that will be leading the change. + all teachers have access to the online courses of the LLWings project. + The principal tracks the progress of the training which may be included in the teachers review process.21st century educationStudent Centric LearningLLWings:Lifelong LearningFlippingClassroomsQ4I:Change MgtIguana:stucknessEPNoSL: Policy Network
