I’m fortunate to be working with ACEL and ASCD as they bring Heidi Hayes Jacobs and Ann Johnson to Australia to continue the introduction of Curriculum Mapping to our schools. My perspective is that available technologies enable students to “side-step or super-charge” their learning. The determining factor is a meaningful and individualised curriculum that engages intrinsic motivation and develops a culture of thinking. My session is titled “Curriculum Mapping + Web 2.0 = Personal Learning” as I don’t think education stands a chance of taking advantage of digital technologies without better articulating and tracking individual student learning. Curriculum Mapping has to happen.
The following handouts accompany the session:
- Curriculum Map of the presentation
- The agenda for the session
- A Tale of Two Kiddies
- I Want to Integrate Web 2.0
- Dos & Don’ts of Integrating Web 2.0
Finally – don’t miss the Conference Archive on Heidi’s Web site, CurriculumDesigners.com for access to presentations, handouts, etc. A real treasure of support.
