Active learning

Schools are among the places where children learn key skills and gain knowledge about the world, and where they are ‘socialized’, made aware of society’s future expectations of them as citizens. Often this has involved the enforcing of blind obedience and deference. But increasingly schools are places for socialization of a different kind, where children are enabled to think critically, where they learn about their rights and responsibilities and where they actively prepare for their role as citizens.
