Sorting Students into Learning
Dunleavy, Jodene; Milton, Penny
Education Canada, v50 n3 Sum 2010
The qualities and outcomes advanced as the hallmarks of 21st century learning have been part of the conversation about public education for decades. Since 2007, What did you do in school today? has been building on the established concepts of social and academic (or institutional) engagement and advancing the newer concept of intellectual engagement, using a set of measures to provide a foundation for understanding what students are doing in classrooms, how they feel about their learning experiences, and how the work they do contributes to learning. In the context of the still emerging 21st century learning agenda, the concept of intellectual engagement provides a way into considering the kinds of learning experiences young people require to develop important competencies for learning and life. Perhaps, however, its greatest potential lies in bringing current aspirations for equity and excellence in education together through the hearts, hands, and minds of all students.
