Now I have started to bring visuals into the whole hub through our Achieving Agency wall. As a hub team we wanted to bring our 'Caught Being' wall to life and integrate the aspects of Agency to get the learners using the language of learning and link it to our learner qualities.
We have used our Agency Language of learning and linked them to each of our learner qualities then I created visuals to go along with this concept. My other hub member has created an online game to go hand in hand with the visuals, adhering to various cognitive functions across the whole hub.
This is an example of my modelling book that shows how I can link any area of the curriculum to the aspects of Agency using the visuals. The more I model and use the vocabulary the more this will build up the understanding in the learners to use independently.
Although we do not know what the future holds I feel we have to attempt to understand what qualities and skills will be needed/desired to be successful adults: creative, risk takers who can self regulate and adapt to a changing environment (with confidence or resilience?). - That's my thoughts anyways. Helping children to accept and understand what ‘comfortable with being uncomfortable so you are prepared for anything’ means.
