Blackwood High School Principal Susan Hyde is my guest this month on EdCom and she talks to us about how to engage 21st century students through the curriculum. Susan is a self-confessed theory junkie and her current passion is exploring the notion of connectivism and how ICTs in education can help students to make sense of the content that is so easily available to them on the Web. Susan talks about the International Baccalaureate (IB) curriculum and how to work teaching and learning across the disciplines, as well as the effects of Web 2.0 on education and the Net Generation. She despises what she calls ‘ideas assassins’ and encourages all teachers to explore the intellectual landscape of theory and thinking.
