“A number of years ago, I was teaching an all boys Year 9 English class when I was interrupted by a student who said, “I don’t mean to be rude, miss, but… Why are we doing this?”
Despite my best efforts to fumble for a better response, all I could say in the moment was, “Because, we have to.”
But, did we? Did we have to? Despite the relentless efforts of educators everywhere, it is becoming increasingly difficult to keep up with new trends, new technologies and new approaches to learning. Creating new content, or reinvigorating our best lessons is one of the most challenging parts of our profession, and all too often a rather lonely experience for too many teachers.
Our Future Anything programs address these challenges directly by providing fully resourced and curriculum aligned programs that support educators to deliver engaging learning that links to life.
Using the framework of our Entrepreneur’s Odyssey, our Future Anything programs encourage young people to embark on their own journey of self discovery; using entrepreneurship as a vehicle to empower young people with the knowledge, skills, support, and partnerships to develop innovative ideas that solve problems.
With supported educators leading authentic, ‘future ready’ curriculum, we really can bend the future; one youth-led idea at a time.”
