‘Running with it’ – Personalised learning in Year 8

Created by Neil Hanger

What was the school trying to achieve?

The aim was to develop a Year 8 student centered curriculum experience rather an ‘imposed’ model. It was hoped that this more personalised approach would inspire and engage all students. Through increasing the involvement of the students in structuring their learning, the intention was that they would become far more independent and self directed, passionate and involved in their learning. It was anticipated that Yr 8 students would  determine the project themes and develop personal outcomes through the application of previously acquired processes, skills and techniques.
