The nest two weeks are courtesy of the Rangiora HIgh School Education Trust, who granted me a $3000 scholarship to investigate what 'modern learning environments' and ' curricula for the future' look like across a range of Australian Schools.
The next two weeks will be pretty full on - 7 schools across 3 states and the 3 day 'Future Schools Conference' in Sydney will be keeping me busy.
In Sydney I am planning to see:
Barker College www.barker.nsw.edu.au and Cabrammata High School
The whole team will visit the Google 'go to' school Arthur Phillips High School http://www.aphs.nsw.edu.au/
From there to Adelaide where I am planning to visit:
Australian Science Mathematics School http://www.asms.sa.edu.au/ and
Birdwood High School - http://www.birdwoodhs.sa.edu.au/
My last school visits will be in Melbourne where I am visiitng:
McKinnon Secondary College
http://www.mckinnonsc.vic.edu.au/ and John Monash Science School
In between these visits a group from school will also attend the Future Schools 2015 Conference and I'm looking forward to the the dialogue that will take place.
Our school footprint is about to undergo a massive change - we now have 20 months to prepare for this. Exciting times!!
