Education is for improving the lives of others and for leaving your community and world better than you found it.

EDUCATORS & STUDENTS

Those in education today recognise the crucial role they play in developing their students beyond the limitations of the curriculum. What teachers model determines, to a large extent, how the next generation will treat themselves, each other and the planet. So in a very real sense, teachers hold the key to our evolution as a society.

 

LDD TECHNIQUE FOR TEACHERS

    This is a tailor made course for teachers within a school, or across many schools. The course consists of face-to-face teaching and online notes, virtual supervision and support sessions.

    When teachers use LDD as a teaching technique whilst teaching the curriculum:

    • Lessons become more stimulating and alive
    • Greater inclusivity and involvement is achieved
    • Even the quiet students or those that tend not to be involved participate
    • Participative, experiential learning occurs enabling students to integrate the knowledge and apply it successfully to real-life situations

    LDD FOR LEADERS IN EDUCATION

      As the education system continues its transition out of assembly-line efficiency to being truly learner-centric, the demands of those in front of the classroom and leadership positions become  increasingly complex.

      Educational leaders are required to, not only be an agent of change but also set the conditions and environment within which change and innovation can occur.

      The LDD method is used by principals, directors and heads of departments as a roadmap to unlock creativity and resolve the tension and conflict that are inevitable with change.

        CORESOLVE FOR STUDENTS

      CoResolve empowers students to gain valuable life skills, enabling them to embrace and value diversity, enhance their communication ability and capability to make inclusive decisions that others buy
      into and carry through.

      CoResolve helps students to become emotionally aware, socially capable
      and responsible individuals.

      LDD TECHNIQUE FOR TEACHERS

      Here’s an example of how the teachers in Wulagi school in Northern Territory use LDD as a teaching technique.

      In this example the children were being taught using a technique referred to as the ‘Soft Shoe Shuffle’.

      “Everyone has a voice at Wulagi (school). Three years of hearing everyone’s views and making decisions together has helped our wellbeing, creative genius and responsibility.

      The Lewis Method of Deep Democracy allows students to take ownership & control their behaviour”

      Susan Kilgour, Principal of Wulagi Independent Public School

      Due to using the LDD technique whilst teaching the curriculum  students gain the following important life skills:

      • How to have a voice, feel heard and understood and know their opinion is important and respected
      • Develop sensitivity in listening to others views
      • Recognise that there will be views different from their own and to respect them too
      • How to resolve differences of opinion
      • To unlock creative and innovative solutions through the structured LDD debate
      • How to have deeper connections with others, gain self-insight and be empowered
      • Heightened accountability and responsibility
      • Tools to have challenging conversations and resolve tension such as bullying
