Swimming out of our depth? Leading learning in 21st century schools

Author(s): 
Ally Bull and Jane Gilbert

This paper reports preliminary findings from NZCER research designed to explore the following questions:

  • How difficult is it for teachers acculturated in 20th century ways of thinking about education and its purpose, to "shift their paradigm"?
  • Do today’s teachers have the dispositions and competencies they are being required to develop in their students—given that their schooling was not designed to develop these?
  • What kinds of learning environments would teachers need to develop these competencies and dispositions?
