What is a 21st Century Learner?

This term we have been exploring learning through the ages, how individuals learn and what is the future learning environment likely to be.  We have looked at Habits of the Mind, GAFE skills, Values and much more.

As part of the students learning they made their parents a Tagxedo about how they learn.

Genius Hour

Class 6MS is taking part in Genius Hour. If you are wondering what it is watch the video below.

The students in 6MS will be given one hour of class time to research and investigate a topic of their choice.  But the topic that they investigate must follow three  simple rules

  • There needs to be a question that they want to answer that can not be answered by Google.
  • They must do research on their topic
  • They need to share their findings with others.

Within 6MS  students will have the opportunity to work individually or with others in pairs or small groups.


  • What do you like most about Genius Hour?
  • What is the question you are researching?
  • Why did you choose to research this question?
