In teaching, your current skill-set is important, but your ability to learn new knowledge, skills, and behaviours is vital. As the rate of change within the education sector increases, teachers and principals are constantly required to adapt. It is clear that learning agility has to be part of their repertoire.
Learning agility is the capacity for rapid, continuous learning from experience. Managing your professional learning journey by acquiring new skills in a targeted way is fundamental to learning agility and exactly the functionality we are producing with mme moe.
Teachers and principals need to be able to systematically reflect, target their professional learning and seek feedback. mme moe’s coaching functionality provides our clients with this agency. Mme moe enables you to share elements of your learning journey with a mentor or a colleague. You can maximize your learning from their feedback.
Developing learning agility involves learning to recognize and change routines and habits. A growing body of research shows that the habit of systematically reflecting on work experiences boosts learning significantly. Teachers and principals who demonstrate and encourage reflection not only learn more themselves, they also generate, through modelling, increased awareness and reflective practice in colleagues and students.
Agile learners value the process of learning. The ability to remain open to new ways of thinking and to continuously learn new skills is vital. You can use mme moe as a springboard to become an agile learner.
