Last week, our team was fortunate enough to attend the first workshop of the 2020 calendar with PBLWorks alongside 150 leading educators.
Scroll back three years, BECOME had just been formed, and the phase “future of work” was banded around like a millennial gimmick. However 2019 saw a seismic shift in attitudes, the lessons were being heard and the barrier in failing to prepare our young people, acknowledged.
And now here we are in 2020, and the collective of change agents in this space have stepped forward once more, this time to action to which we can not be more delighted with.
There’s a growing global panic about future employability of young people and people are looking at the education system for the solution.
PBLWorks has truly recognised this and having spoken to their well-defined, niche audience of educators, we are proud to announce an ongoing partnership with the organisation. We’ve always known that our mission and the aims of PBLWorks are aligned, to inspire young people deeply with their learning and prepare them with the skills they need to thrive in their future. Inspired today, prepared for tomorrow.
Our time at last week’s workshop enabled us to cement the BECOME approach with PBL techniques.
To ensure we remain as close to our members as possible, we are delighted to have walked away with a real project ready to roll out in Term 1. The first BECOME PBL unit is designed for Year 7 and delivers to Year 7 Business & Economics from the Australian Curriculum. Give us a shout here if you’d like to test drive it with your students.
The Driving Question is: How can I design my ideal career?
