Acting on learning brings value and purpose to student work at school. Acting on learning is more than a learning activity: it moves beyond investigation of an issue to identifying solutions and working towards a desired change—in personal lifestyle, in school, in the community, and on the planet. At its best, acting on learning brings significant benefits as students become authentic contributors to their community.
For students, acting on learning is experiential and a key citizenship learning strategy. Through acting on learning students help solve interrelated social, economic and environmental challenges.
Acting on learning extends to educators, educational institutions and community members as they attempt to model what is being taught.
