I have always had an interest in supporting the 'belows' as I feel they are struggling accessing the learning not because they can not do it! So as part of my inquiry into what agentic learning looks like, I wanted to come from the angle of how can we support learners to be more agentic?
Mark Treadwell's The Future of learning has given me great insights into starting my inquiry and I believe before we can expect our learners to even think about being agentic we have to equip them with a language for their learning and support them in understanding their thinking and how this has an impact on their actions.
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.
