Creating Future-Focussed Curriculum

Event description

Future Anything works with schools around the country to unpack the ‘what’, and more importantly, the ‘how’ of an innovative and future focussed approach to curriculum and pedagogy.

Often ‘innovation’ is tied to elective subjects such as Business or STEM, or extra-curricular and opt-in offerings, however using our evidence based frameworks, we build the capacity of educators to embed a practical and contextual curriculum approach to 21st Century Skills, Entrepreneurship and/or Project Based Learning that aligns with each school community’s needs, and vision.

In partnership with The Greater Whitsunday Alliance, we are bringing three teacher professional development workshops to the Greater Whitsunday region in 2021. Workshops are open to all upper primary and secondary teachers in the region. 

You can attend in person at Split Spaces in Mackay or online via Zoom. 

Workshop 3: Creating Future-Focussed Curriculum

This jam-packed half day workshop will empower upper primary and secondary educators with a shared understanding of what Project Based Learning is (and isn’t), as well as stepping through an eight part framework to support the ‘how’ of delivering contextually relevant PBL learning experiences and curriculum units in every classroom.

But, rather than just talking about what makes an innovative and engaging unit of work, we're going to use the principles of inquiry and project-based learning to actually re-design your own curriculum into a unit of work that you're going to be excited to deliver in 2022.

So, BYO curriculum and a colleague!

Attendance is free but places are strictly limited - you must register to secure your spot. 

    This event will also include a tour of the Split Spaces facility that will stimulate your imagination and have you wanting to be involved with Mackay’s coworking and innovation hub, as a resource for yourself and your students outside the school environment. 

    Split Spaces is the home to Launchpad Studios, incorporating a 5 metre greenscreen, basic video equipment and a fully functional 4-person capacity podcast studio.  The eSTEAM hackerspace has 360 cameras, VR headsets, 3D printers and workshop tools and equipment to rapid prototype concept designs.  Along with these creative Spaces, the facility also provides coworking desks, board rooms and a casual atmosphere for networking.
