Developing Asia literacy - Learning from the lead�­ing c21st schools Victorian program.
The Leading 21st Century Schools Victoria: engage with Asia program has grown out of the national L21CS program that was launched in 2008. Victoria has given priority to a suite of programs that surround this central professional learning for principals. This ground breaking work is reaching a significant proportion of schools and measuring significant change, depth and sustainability in the quality of student outcomes, teacher capability and whole school change. Victoria now has nearly 10% of all schools in all sectors engaged in this work with the potential to influence nearly 12,000 teachers and 130,000 students.This paper will discuss the philosophy behind the approach, the programs available, the reports and findings, the connections with the Australian Curriculum and the interconnectivity of programs and initiatives that support this work.
