The Future is Now: Implementing Meaningful Projects & Inquiries
At Saigon South International School, we have innovated our Elementary School curriculum into four “SuperUnits." During this presentation, I will share the innovative work and curriculum development that we have done. We will inquire into: What skills and dispositions will our students need in the future? What foundational knowledge will be necessary? How can we purposefully plan our units, inquiries, and projects? Current research around the future of jobs, technology, as well as the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals can help us. Come prepared for “think-tank like” discussions and to be inspired to begin implementing change for the future in your classrooms and schools.
