I recently posted a comment on an iNet online conference.
iNet is an international network of schools committed to innovative change that supports improved student learning.
The online conference had a focus on “curriculum redesign” and posed a question on school organisation matching the needs of learners in the 21st century.
My comment reminded me of a phrase I recently heard which describes schooling that continues to be designed along the 19th century process line systems – smoke stack schooling. I think the image is powerful for it evokes in our environmentally conscious 21st century age the need to change or perish.
