When we have discussions about A Curriculum for Excellence at School I keep asking the question, ‘what do we actually want children know and what skills do they need to have to enter the 21st Century?’ I really feel that the secondary debate at the moment is focusing far too much on individual subject departments and not enough on whole school. I think we also need to remember that A Curriculum for Excellence is also about improving Learning and Teaching, up-dating and validating the skills of our children.
If you have 7 minutes this video would provide a good starter to any ACE discussion. In any planning that goes on in the next few months it’s really important that we don’t forget the bigger picture.
By the way this is the most viewed video on TeacherTube (Thanks Jim)
