The concept of transverse education is cross curricular classes for the 21st century.  Teaching integrated subjects happens easily at elementary, how do we break the barriers at high school which is ruled by discipline silos?  Space and scheduling can make it happen if we have the leaders to do it...

Brad Merrick's curator insight, November 11, 2016 4:14 PM
As the world changes educators need to be creative and realise that 21 century capacities are not being developed through existing curriculum and learning structures. Here, the Transverse approach sees Finland leading the charge, preparing students with the interdisciplinary skills and understanding for the world around them. Well worth the read.
