The Magenta Principles is an umbrella phrase that refers to a philosophy and an approach to teaching based upon the premise that learning should be both exciting and engaging. More specifically, the phrase represents a pedagogy underpinned by an unshakable belief that:

  • Learning is the consequence of thinking… therefor our job is to get them to think
  • Language is central to thinking… therefor our job is to get them to talk
  • Learning is an active process… therefor our job is to get them doing.

We talk about the Magenta Principles – but in reality there is just one principle: in order to make sense of the information that comes their way, students have to do something to/with it. The question therefore becomes: What are students required to do with the information they encounter in the classroom? It is central to the approach and the answer gives us the Magenta Principles – students could be asked to reduce it, change it, assemble it, add to it, arrange it, sequence it, classify it … the list goes on and on.

The verb magentify is increasingly becoming part of teachers’ professional vocabulary and this book is illustrated with over one hundred examples of how teachers have used the Magenta Principles in classrooms. It also includes a number of case studies that outline how schools have successfully introduced a Magenta approach to learning and teaching.
