Future-focused Learning


"If we teach today as we taught yesterday, we rob our students of tomorrow"

John Dewey​

​Future-focused learning prepares our students across all curriculum areas and learning stages with skills and capabilities to thrive in a rapidly changing and interconnected world.  It connects our students and engages their sense of curiosity, helping them to make meaning of our world.

Our future-focused teachers know and understand the needs and talents of their students.  They are collaborative, flexible, reflective and use a diverse range of effective teaching strategies to differentiate and inspire learning.

Our future-focused learning environments motivate students to be leaders of their own learning.  Students collaborate and use critical and creative thinking to solve problems, growing as active and informed global citizens.

St Joseph's has been on the journey of creating contemporary learning spaces for several years and these learning spaces continue to evolve in meeting the needs of our students.

Our contemporary learning spaces:

  • are mobile, flexible, varied and connected
  • provide students with choice in where and how they learn
  • can be adapted to accommodate learning modes and technology
  • support opportunities for students to learn independently, and in small and large groups
  • support collaborative learning and teaching for students and teachers.​
