Our School Our Future – Shaping the future of Australian schools is for school leaders motivated to meet the challenge of ensuring their schools are successful both now and into the future.
The kit includes a book and supporting Resource Book. The book investigates the forces shaping the future of schools, looks at the need for a clear vision and detailed planning, describes the role of values and innovation and analyses the elements involved in gearing for change. It draws upon the views of teachers and school leaders in Australian schools, the experience of schools that are sustaining success, and expert thinking from around the world.
The Resource Book uses the structure of the book to set out practical activities and exercises to challenge thinking, encourage and facilitate collective thought and action and lead schools to feel empowered to create schools for the future.
Authors Brian Caldwell and David Loader were co-directors of the Futures Focused School workshop series conducted nationally in 2009. They are both successful authors in the education field.
