This is the first in a series of posts that will explain the Future of Learning at WAB through its 21 Targets.
Target 1: WAB's culture is learning-focused.
This target will impact each member of the WAB community:
With our focus on keeping students at the center of learning, WAB has always been an innovator of education. Research shows that replacing conventional school structures – like grouping students by age and operating on a fixed schedule – enhances learning.
It's time to evolve and begin using time, space and student grouping to the advantage of our learners. FLoW21 committees — made up of teachers, students, parents, and board members — are developing models to improve teaching and learning: creating new ways of grouping learners, individualizing timetables, designing flexible learning spaces, and beyond.
These adaptations reinforce WAB's commitment to a culture of learning.
