This is a low-cost, high return initiative, which simply asks the educational system to:

  1. Commit to a simple set of changes in practice at all levels;
  2. Allow ‘seed time’ to implement these changes in practice;
  3. Use the team to develop collaboration in communicating and monitoring the changes.

Here are some examples:

  1. Bring together evidence on student voice, inquiry, peer assessment, global outreach, group work etc. through its established international team who are experts in these areas;
  2. Set out a framework for listening to students, and for educators to listen to each other, developed by experts in professional learning;
  3. Provide indicators and evaluation plans for monitoring, qualifying and quantifying the changes, developed by experts on assessment;
  4. Bring the systemic improvements to the attention of a global audience.
