The Australian Curriculum
Ever-changing technologies make it difficult for teachers trying to prepare their students for a future that is difficult to imagine. We simply do not know what our students will face. What we do know is that, as adults, our students will need to be team players, innovators, and problem solvers.
Science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) represent disciplines and tools for helping our students develop the habits of mind necessary to solve complex real-world problems. Secondary school is no longer the primary arena for this type of work. The International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) standards, the Common Core State Standards (CCSS), and the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) converge around the topic of problem solving as early as kindergarten and challenge teachers to lay the foundation for our students' futures. The International Primary School uses the above standards along with the organisational structure of the Australian Curriculum and personalises the learning content to suit the student's interests, abilities and requirements.
