Abstract

This report describes the experiences of teachers and pupils in 8 schools as they engaged with the research team, and authors of this report, in attempting to adapt the Bridge21 model of 21st century (21C) learning for use in the mainstream classroom to deliver core curriculum content. The work, and the report, is firmly situated within the context of the Junior Cycle reform process and the participating schools can be viewed as innovators in the emerging change process. The schools come from a diverse geographical and socioeconomic background and thus are a representative sample of the wider cohort of secondary schools in the country. A characteristic they share is strong school leadership, which is supportive of the process, and groups of teachers who are open to exploring changes in classroom practice.
