what we do
Virtual and situatedprofessional learning
Building capacity for high impact teaching, learning and assessment through mobile and responsive technologies enables us to create and tailor learning that meets individual needs using local contexts. Blended approaches leverage 'virtual' and 'situated' face-to-face workshops to co-design, co-deliver and collaborate on projects, fostering creative and critical thinking and problem-solving.
21C curriculum consultancy/instructional design
Working together to design and deliver programs allows us to fully meet your school's curriculum design and implementation needs. We facilitate flexible and agile practices to identify and bring partners together, fostering diversity and engagement, using big data analysis to create unique and dynamic whole-school training and delivery of programs for science, technology, engineering, creative arts and mathematics.
Coaching, mentoring and Tuition
One-on-one training and development brings the individual to the forefront, using a strengths-based approach that builds confidence and ability. A personalised service promotes high-level engagement through support including demonstration, guided and independent practice, and empathy. We build capacity for life-long learning by building sustainable and productive networks. Our services extend beyond the classroom and include private coaching, mentoring and tutoring in all areas of STEAM.
