Passion Index pilot underway
Our six Victorian schools came together in late 2017 to learn more about the Passion Index and how to use it to cultivate a culture of passion in their schools in their schools.
Principals and teachers from Western Port Secondary College, Mount Alexander College, Bentleigh Secondary College, Eltham High School, Kingswood College and Portland Secondary College shared with each other the challenges they face in their own communities to engage students in passion led learning and set goals they hope the Passion Index will help them achieve in 2018.
The pilot schools have already shown exceptional commitment to passion as an essential part of learning and were selected to participate in this pilot program based on detailed applications from a range of Victorian schools.
The Passion-led Learning Index and Toolkit is central to ALL’s view that schools need to know each student’s interest and develop their deep learning from this.
About the Passion-led Learning Index
The Passion Index project is about developing a simple tool which helps teachers know their students, and guides them to a deeper understanding of what motivates and inspires each student. It changes the paradigm from one of success and failure to one where growth and motivation are celebrated.
Our goal is to address disengagement amongst struggling students and underperformance from our top students. Passion supports and guides learning; and it is also sought by employers who are looking for creativity and inspiration.
This is a visionary project, linking our core ideas of joy and data.
This project is funded by the Lord Mayor's Charitable Foundation.
