Today's kids, tomorrow's school

Schools, teachers and students have been experimenting with learning styles and adapting technology to education for many years. Understanding how children prefer to learn, in contrast to how they need to learn, has become a point of difference in school education.

Panellists Aine Maher and Linda Mitchell examine the impact new approaches to education are having on students and their futures.

Aine Maher is director of teaching and learning at the Association of Independent Schools of Victoria.

Linda Mitchell is curriculum coordinator at Australian Technical College in Sunshine

This event was held on 19 May 2009 at the State Library of Victoria.
