School Revolution 2020: Part 2

  • A team of 10 volunteer teachers from different leadership levels held discussion around the rationale for change being a combination of societal pressures, government policy, and existing school problems.
  • In our school, we already have six cross-curricular professional learning groups, each with about 20 teachers.
  • Whether teachers are positive, concerned, or indifferent about the school revolution, in both these two staff channels weve already identified our first primary concern: Building teacher awareness of how integrated curriculums operate in practice.
  • We have been sending curriculum leaders on school visits already but it will be crucial to send as many teachers on visits as we can fit inside the next 18 months.
  • School community channels: These will be instigated during the next month as we widen the dialogue to the parents, guardians, and community about integrated learning and educate them about national and global education trends and the demands from industries etc.
