A new pedagogical model of learning is being proposed by two local educators in order to better equip pre- and primary school-aged children to “take their rightful place on the global stage”.
The premise was presented by Dr. Sharon Speir and Dr. Llewellyn Simmons, as part of the BC Journal: Voices in Education Forum series at the Bermuda College last night [Jan 26]. The event was open to the public and the moderator was Ms. Ru-Zelda Severin.
The College previously said, “Dr. Speir heads the Department of Education’s Early Childhood Education Section which includes the Child Development Programme, Government Preschools, Childcare Quality Assurance, consultative support services to primary schools on early childhood education, and early childhood special education.
“Dr. Simmons is Director of Academics at the Ministry of Education, and has also served as a guidance counsellor, social studies teacher, education officer for social studies, and assistant professor at the University of Dayton. He is a committed advocate for public education, decolonisation discourse, and the education and cultural politics of Bermuda.”
