Many educators have been looking for a fundamentally different approach to engage young people and encourage progress in learning. Supported by recent public policy developments, a transformation is beginning to take place in the practice of many schools. The focus of learning is shifting away from the child as an individual in a classroom detached from the surrounding neighbourhood to a learning community that embraces carers and families as well as young people and teachers. This monograph analyses the organising principles of this cultural transformation and considers how it will shape learning in schools and communities throughout the world. The book brings together key thinkers from the fields of new learning, new communities of educational practice and new forms of educational governance. Arguing for the necessary interconnectedness of pedagogy, institutions and governance, this ground-breaking book will undoubtedly shape the policy agenda in this area for years to come.

This study promotes a model of education which is collaborative and non-hierarchical. While traditional approaches to learning and teaching stress cognitive aspects of development and learning, this text advocates an approach which synthesizes the cognitive, affective and social dimensions of learning. Revealing personal and social learning as being involved with the whole school experience, the authors support the nature of learning within this radical model, and highlight key social values such as equality, respect and justice.
