Ginger Jewell's curator insight, October 31, 2016 8:47 AM
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.

Schools in Finland will no longer teach 'subjects' | 21st century education | Scoop.it
For years, Finland has been the by-word for a successful education system, perched at the top of international league tables for literacy and numeracy.
Pippa Davies @PippaDavies 's insight:

Change is happening again in Finland.  I love how they are creating a streamed approach as well as deeper thinking skills, and a more career aligned focus.

Why It’s Time to Stop Talking And Start Acting to Make Change | 21st century education | Scoop.it
Schools aren't good at innovation, said Grant Lichtman in a TEDx talk given to teachers in Denver. They are big, bureaucratic, risk averse and affected by politics more than smart education policy.
Pippa Davies @PippaDavies 's insight:

Breaking down walls, and creating a system that reinvents itself in a culture that encourages innovation and change is uncomfortable, but Grant Lichtman says LETS DO IT!  Amen to that!

What Do Students Think Of Your Class?
Pippa Davies @PippaDavies 's insight:

"In the end, the most important lesson is for you to control the perception of your classroom. It has been said that learners may not remember much about what you teach them, but they’ll never forget how you made them feel. That’s identity."  How we make our staff, students feel is the most important reason for learning, and embracing change.
