TWG 2: Learners as learning leaders: how does leadership for learning emerge beyond the traditional teaching models?
As we open up to the broadening of contexts for learning, facilitated by pervasive technology to individual learners, we need to think about how leadership for learning emerges and can be supported beyond the traditional teaching models in a technology-enriched environment. In formal as well as in informal contexts, learning leaders, willing to take responsibility for learning in their context, develop new technical competencies. Consequently, their capacity for innovation along the broad spectrum of human activity is enhanced and continues to evolve. Learning leaders, which may include teachers, students and other educators, manifest their leadership through boundary spanning, deep understanding of authentic problems, relational agency engaging in problem solving, overcoming design challenges, game playing, etc.
