The following discussion tool picks up on the key competencies wall idea as described by the Sylvia Park School team.
It summarises some of the challenges and possibilities in creating a KCs wall, which is not just a place to put up finished work but somewhere to support the development of learners' key competencies.
There are several purposes for a key competencies wall:
There are also a number of challenges involved in ensuring ‘the wall’ goes beyond the wall displays of the past, to reflect the best of key competencies. One challenge is for the wall to hold really interesting examples of learners demonstrating the key competencies.
A KC wall can play an important part in the ‘all day and anytime’ idea – the Sylvia Park team talked about focusing on key competencies not only during the school day but also before and after school. The wall could include evidence of learning from anytime, and is a place that should be a living record of learning, rather than a static display of something that happened in the past.
The Sylvia Park team also talked about the trial and error they have gone through. So what else might we try and keep in mind in creating a KC wall?
How might your own KC wall, or the ones shown here, be developed further?
