Unlocking the Future Capabilities
In partnership with The Greater Whitsunday Alliance, Future Anything is bringing three teacher professional development workshops to the Greater Whitsunday region in 2021. Workshops are open to all upper primary and secondary teachers in the region.
Future Anything works with schools around the country to unpack the ‘what’, and more importantly, the ‘how’ of an innovative and future focussed approach to curriculum and pedagogy.
Often ‘innovation’ is tied to elective subjects such as Business or STEM, or extra-curricular and opt-in offerings, however using our evidence based frameworks, we build the capacity of educators to embed a practical and contextual curriculum approach to 21st Century Skills, Entrepreneurship and/or Project Based Learning that aligns with each school community’s needs, and vision.
Workshop 1: Unlocking the Future Capabilities
This engaging three hour workshop will dive into the ‘future of work’ for young people, exploring the 21st Century Skills or Future Capabilities required for young people to thrive.
From here, we take a deep dive into five in detail; creativity, problem solving, failure fitness, collaboration and communication.
- The ‘Why’- Using cutting edge research, we explore what skills and attributes young people need to navigate the future of work.
- The ‘What’- We unpack five of the key future capabilities in detail, exploring what they are and what they look like in the classroom- and the work place.
- The ‘How’- From here, we run through a number of ways that you can purposefully embed each future capability in your classroom.
