Signature Learning Experiences

Signature Learning Experiences

Scotch’s Junior Campus programs are carefully and deliberately designed to meet the academic, developmental and wellbeing needs of contemporary learners at each stage of primary schooling. 

Through a series of ‘Signature learning experiences’ at each year level, Scotch students develop their learning profile with lifelong skills that build from ‘Curiosity & Creativity’ to ‘Independence and success’, before encouraging them to step out of their comfort zone, and lead to a full sense of agency and empowerment through ‘Action and Influence’ and ‘Collaboration and Leadership’ by the end of Year 6. 

This week, each of our Year 5 classes ‘collapsed’ their regular timetable to undertake one of three in-depth focuses linked to their year-long signature learning experience ‘Influences & Action to promote Student Voice & Involvement.

Mr Woodhouse’s class were immersed in the World Peace Game with accredited facilitators, Mr Ivens and Mrs Fromholtz. Mrs Williams’ class took a deep dive into Future Problem Solving with Mrs Kaesler. This is a program most schools reserve for students in extension and enrichment programs. Mrs Worthington’s class engaged in the Hack in a Box program and have been working with experts from our parent and staff community, including a dietician, an entrepreneur, our Director of Information and Innovation and the Scotch Marketing and Development team.

The classes will rotate through each program next term.

 

The World Peace Game

The World Peace Game is a hands-on political simulation that gives players the opportunity to explore the connectedness of the global community through the lens of the economic, social, and environmental crises and the imminent threat of war. The goal of the game is to extricate each country from dangerous circumstances and achieve global prosperity with the least amount of military intervention. As “nation teams,” students will gain greater understanding of the critical impact of information and how it is used. 

 

Hack in a Box

Hack in a Box is Australia’s first schools' entrepreneurial program designed to get students tackling real world challenges and create a solution.  During the program, students are taught a set of innovation tools that are based on the latest research into what has been scientifically proven innovation methodology to boost creative and critical thinking skills and can be applied in any subject, in their personal life and beyond, to help solve any challenges they need to think creatively about. Students pitch their solution to a panel.

 

Future Problem Solving

FPS is an international educational program for students of all ages, focusing on the development of critical, creative and futuristic thinking skills.  

Through a six-step thinking Creative Problem-Solving Process, students are challenged to apply their minds to some of the significant issues facing the world of today and the future, equipping them with the vision, skills and tools to design and promote positive futures for the society in which they live.  In their introduction to FPS students are introduced to action-based problem-solving (AbPS).
