The cLc Learning Matrix:   Removing barriers and creating new opportunities for learning 
 
The cLc Learning Matrix is designed for schools and individuals to identify priorities and opportunities for development. It supports users in identifying objectives that can be built into their action plans and makes use of examples produced by users in our global community of cLc schools.

The matrix is divided into several different sections below, which are recognised as essential components within a learner-enabled 21 st Century learning environment.
