The learning programmes in action

To assist in planning learning programmes, the learning wheel, offers a schema that places and relates the
different elements of the guidelines. The learning programme revolves around the student. It is represented as concentric circles on a wheel to act as a visual reminder and reflective tool for teachers and students that emphasises the importance of maintaining a holistic view of the learning. The concentric circles, from the inside out, reflect the students, aspects of their learning such as the IEP, the categories of learning outcomes involved, the PLUs, potential curricular areas included in the programme, the assessment and qualifications dimension and, finally, some of the principles involved. The table following the diagram describes the
elements of the wheel in greater detail.

To support teachers in planning for learning and assessment an e-planning tool has been developed by NCCA. It is informed by the learning wheel so it assists teachers to plan in an integrated way, rather than seeing the IEP, literacy and numeracy goals as well as L2LP targets as separate entities.
