So in a very real sense, teachers hold the key to our evolution as a society.

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 leadership positions becomes increasingly complex.  Leaders are not only required to be an agent of change, but also set the conditions and environment within which change and innovation can occur.

LDD FOR TEACHERS

When teachers use LDD as a teaching methodology 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
  • Depth of learning is achieved and students integrate the knowledge and apply it successfully to real-life situations

Due to the method of teaching being uniquely integrated into the learning the curriculum, the students will also learn 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

Here’s an example of how Wulagi school in Northern Territory use the LDD method.

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
