Kingswood College Partnership

Elevo is pleased to announce that it has entered into an agreement with Kingswood College to develop further the ThinkPlus metacurriculum and to coordinate and link ThinkPlus schools in Victoria. The focus of the development, to be managed by Kingswood in 2015, will be with two groups of students, those in Years 1 and 2 and those in Years 9 and 10. Materials developed are to be shared freely with ThinkPlus schools.

ThinkPlus is a metacurriculum for learnable intelligence and thinking tools, to be implemented in Australian schools from years Prep – 12. ThinkPlus is designed to develop an awareness of how our brains work, growth mindsets, good thinking dispositions and practical tools for collaboration, problem solving and creativity. The metacurriculum is based on contemporary research about how the brain learns and thinking occurs. The key to ThinkPlus is the concept that intelligence can be grown with effort. By instilling young learners with the confidence and ability to think through problems, we envisage that they will be better equipped to navigate challenges in the 21st century.

Kingswood College is an independent, co-educational ELC – Year 12 Uniting Church College in Box Hill and has been educating young men and women since 1890. Known for its innovation, collaboration and engagement, Kingswood College is entering an exciting time in its development as it implements a world-class student-focused learning agenda. Kingswood College’s agenda for learning is two-fold: improvement and innovation through the implementation of the LATTICE (Learning and Teaching through Innovation, Collaboration and Engagement) framework, and Kingswood College is a candidate school for the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme.

Kingswood College’s partnership with the Elevo Institute aligns with both organisations’ commitment to innovation and creating a better future for young people. The Elevo Institute and Kingswood College seek to:

  • develop the creative potential of young people as a preparation for the challenges of a rapidly changing world, and an unknowable future
  • improve teaching and learning through development of well-researched and tested innovative methodologies
  • incubate new ideas, taking them from thought leadership to the school/classroom.
