Got back to work this week and found this book from Heidi Hayes Jacobs in the pigeon hole, courtesy of the good people at ASCD. It’s subtitled ‘Essential education for a changing world’ and I’m looking forward to getting into it. I suspect it will have a lot to say about the notions of 21st Century curriculum and 21st Century skills that I’ve reflected on here before. Heidi Hayes Jacobs is best known to me for her work in curriculum mapping and has presented regularly in Australia.
There’s also a nice little 10 minute video of her introducing the book on the page where you can order it here.
