Boys to Men: Learning Today – Leading Tomorrow

Transforming schools: Leading and learning in uncertain times

Dr Michael Anderson

Transformation is no longer an option in teaching and learning – it has become a necessity. Changes in the way we work and the challenges of issues such as climate change, poverty and migration mean that teaching and learning need to alter to incorporate capacities that will help us meet those challenges. Creativity, critical reflection, communication and collaboration [the 4Cs] have long been present in education. However, it is the act of embedding the 4Cs deeply within our learning and teaching that will transform schools into dynamic and exciting learning spaces; spaces in which boys can learn in a positive environment and grow their leadership skills.
