This is a new monograph that focuses upon how learning communities are transforming schools and communities throughout the world.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, 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. This ground-breaking book will undoubtedly shape the policy agenda in this area for years to come.
