Transforming the 'Traditional Curriculum'

I have been inspired this weekend by the #GoogleEduOnAir Conference and I have been dropping into sessions where I can. The below session entitled, 'Transforming traditional curriculum design to embrace collaboration and critical thinking' caught my eye.

The event, run jointly by The Personalised Learning Network, Wapping High School and The Innovation Unit, explored an issue close to our thinking here at the Isle of Portland Aldridge Community Academy.


In the session, Kerstyn Comley examines recent case studies to demonstrate how technology is being used in the UK to embrace the concept of schools as communities of learners where students and teachers learn with and from each other. Kerstyn, who recently interviewed me about our practice at IPACA, argues that learning is more effective when it fulfils a real need and integrates of a variety of knowledge and information.
