A practical exploration of the curriculum work key competencies should do – The New Zealand experience

Every nation that includes some version of key competencies in their curriculum aligns them with “21st century” learning imperatives. Beyond that high-level thinking, it is not obvious exactly how they should provide the impetus for changing teaching and learning. After a decade of implementation endeavours in New Zealand we know that simply adding them to the existing curriculum won’t work. Come to this workshop if you would like a practical experience of the “weaving” approach we have been slowly developing and are now in the process of consolidating. Bring a favourite learning task with you. We’ll use a novel set of weaving cards to explore possibilities for enriching the intended learning with that extra “something” any set of key competencies could add to the curriculum that students (and their teachers) experience.
