GoogleLitTrips Reading List's curator insight, November 11, 2016 11:40 AM
11 November 2016

And then I came across this hopeful article about the news of one of the world's most respected educational systems taking real action towards changing education so that it much more clearly reflects the way the world really is.

The headline is a bit misleading. According to the article "This system will be introduced for senior students, beginning at the age of 16." 

The concept of cross-curricular education is not new. It has been at the core of much of the 21st century educational reform movement; at least the brand of 21st century educational reform that I've put at the center of the Google Lit Trips vision. 

Global Awareness, cross-curricular, and multi-cultural studies share a common connecting vision especially when actually connected.  We are better able to see that disaggregated separate "curricular puzzle pieces" are better understood when the way they are in the real world actually inseparably interconnected provides us a means of more clearly seeing the big picture.
