The fundamental aim of 21st century education is to expand young people’s appetite and capacity for learning. Over the last 20 years; this idea has grown enormously in its depth; practicality and precision. First there were simple techniques for remembering and organising information; often over-hyped. Then came learning styles that frequently labelled and confined students rather than challenged and stretched them. Often a veneer of dubious neuroscience was added to make ideas look impressive. Next came stand-alone courses on ‘thinking skills’ or ‘learning to learn’ that excited students interest but usually left little lasting impression. And now we have so-called infusion approaches’ that aim to pervade the cultural fabric of schools; colleges and institutions with invitations and opportunities to expand the generic capacities and dispositions that underpin real-life learning. This talk focuses in on the infusion approach; and offers a range of practical suggestions about how to create Learning Power cultures.
