Rebecca McConnell, Director of learning and innovation,
Rebecca McConnell has been the driving force behind transforming the curriculum at Living Faith Lutheran Primary School. She has introduced a forward-thinking, student-centred curriculum based on 21st-century competencies that supports the school’s move to agile learning spaces. The curriculum includes project-based learning, Daily 5 literacy and a maths program based on Carol Dweck and Jo Boaler’s research into growth mindset.
McConnell provides structure and training to support staff through changes, while giving them the freedom to take risks and grow their own practice in directions that excite them. McConnell has also developed a strong culture of risk-taking based on best practice and research through a formal prototyping professional development program.
