ABSTRACT

This book is about a ground-breaking initiative, difficult to capture in linear text, a unique experiment in self-evaluation on a global scale. Known as the Learning School it is a story in which school students take centre stage, as chroniclers of their own learning and of the schools who learned with, and from them. In their own words students describe their change in role from passive recipients in the classroom to active evaluators, creating knowledge for teachers to ‘consume’. Each successive chapter expands our knowledge not only of how school learning ‘works’ but also of how we can get closer to understanding its internal dynamic.
