Responsible and Reciprocal

Responsibility and Reciprocity

  • Interdependence – balancing self-reliance and sociability
  • Collaboration – the skills of learning with each other
  • Empathy and listening – getting inside other minds
  • Imitation – picking up others good habits and values

Responsibility is the recognition that actions have consequences, and the ability and willingness to consider fully those consequences before taking action.  Managing impulsiveness, delaying immediate gratification and thinking in terms of success outcomes are characteristics of the responsible learner.  So too is the ability to empathise and to see things from multiple perspectives.  Responsibility is also about locating your own actions within a larger scheme of things.
