The Gap State High School has a school wide approach to Innovative Learning.
The school’s teaching framework has been specifically developed for The Gap context as a result of an extensive program of research, data collection and community collaboration.
The framework has been designed to support the development of 21st century skills that will help students reach their potential as successful learners, during their time at school and beyond.
The framework has two major guiding principles:
Teachers design learning experiences that support students to learn skills and strategies to improve their self-regulation, self-management and self-awareness. Learners are provided with opportunities to reflect on their learning, set goals and select strategies to support their future growth.
Teachers structure learning in ways that enable students to acquire surface knowledge and skills, reach deep understanding, apply curriculum knowledge and transfer their learning to challenging new contexts and situations.
A detailed explanation of the school’s teaching framework can be found in the student diary.
