Modern Learning Curriculum

Leading future-focused curriculum development in your school

The thinking that goes behind a future-focused approach to curriculum is a key part of developing a full approach to modern learning.

You will learn:

  • how to design a curriculum that is truly future-focused and addresses the needs of all learners
  • how to empower others to reframe curriculum
  • ways to increase and enhance your networked learning opportunities.
