Transformation

Schools must
transform. The
walls of the school
no longer provide
an obstacle. The
World
-
Wide Web
allows for limitless
possibilities for
instruction.

School Transformation

Rethinking the curriculum


We must view learning as a continuum of
instruction rather than a series of discrete
events. We must end the assembly line,
departmentalized model of teaching and
learning and place far more emphasis on a
unified, integrated continuum of instruction
rather than a series of independent, unrelated
courses. We must go beyond theory and focus
on practical applications that are relevant to
workplace rather than mutually exclusive and
theoretical subjects that prepare students for
yesterday and today, not tomorrow.



School Transformation

Where do we begin?

Start by standing back. It is time to step back from our
traditional thinking about learning and rethink
schools, classrooms, curriculum, evaluation, the roles
of teachers & learners and particularly, what it means
and what it will mean to learn in the light of the
modern changing world.
