Starting the semester at Luther College


The first day of Semester 2 for Victoria was a staff day for Luther College, an independent school in Melbourne’s east and I was invited to be their opening keynote speaker.


The topis was Preparing students for the automated workplace – a topic that resonates for many educators who are delivering curriculum with a focus on getting young people ready for the future.

It was interesting to look at some of the changes in technologies that teachers have been using to deliver their curriculum in my time as an educator. Do you recognise any of these?

During this session, we reminisced on a number of these changes that have occurred in the past 30 years. Then we looked at what skills are going to be required by students to thrive in the next 30 years.

I shared with them some of the work from Marc Prensky and who has outlined three separate categories of skills for the new generation worker – effective thinking skills, effective action skills and effective relationship skills.

Special thank you to Adrian Puckering the Director of Learning at Luther College and the Luther College executive for organising a wonderful day of professional learning for their staff.
