Penleigh and Essendon Grammar School: enabling student-centred learning and higher order thinking skills

Penleigh and Essendon Grammar School (PEGS) is a well-established Melbourne independent school with a long history of a focus on student-centred learning and higher order thinking skills. In sharing their experience of LearningField the school describes it as a teaching and learning tool: to guide student learning, provide a deeper understanding of concepts and ultimately allow students to be thinkers and not just learners. The school has also been a strong user of the collaboration features of the service with notes, discussions and online communication with teachers improving the sharing of concepts and making projects more interesting.
